5th Down: Week 11
« on: November 15, 2012, 05:33:24 PM »
The 5th Down Blog is designed to help you, the fantasy owner, on whom to start, sit, and who we pick as a sleeper for the week. Each week, we will take turns doing a position for the week. Feedback is always welcome as we love to discuss football!

Check out past postings of the 5th Down for each week:
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

Quarterback - Philly Girl

Must Start: Carson Palmer :OAK-NFL: vs. :NO:
The Saints' defense has actually been stopping the run but they still allow tons of yards through the air.  It works for the Raiders as all they do is get into passing situations as their team falls behind.  Carson Palmer could throw for over 400 yards this week!

Must Sit: Joe Flacco :BAL-NFL: vs :PIT-NFL:
This game could be a low-scoring affair leaning heavily on the run game.  The Steelers are without Big Ben and their secondary has been locked on opposing QB despite the lack of Polamalu.  It could be a surprisingly long day for the Blue Hen.

Sleeper: Mark Sanchez :NYJ: vs. :STL-NFL:
All of the drama surrounding the Jets' QBs makes this one a head scratcher, but this could be a statement game for Marky Mark.  The Rams have allowed the second most fantasy points to opposing QBs over the past month.  The Jets could help their stat a bit, but the fact remains that their DBs can't stop opposing receivers.

Running Back - JMAC

Must Start: C.J. Spiller :BUF: vs :MIA:
Jackson is out with a concussion and any time C.J. has had a full work load he has had a BIG game.  Look for him to do the same this week even against a solid run defense in MIA. With the touches come production for Spiller.  I see 100 plus total yards at the very least and a score seems to be a lock - and that is on the low end.

Must Sit: Michael Turner :ATL-NFL: vs. :ARI:
He is aging at a rapid rate , right before our eyes, there are better options than Turner formerly the Burner this week... unless you want a repeat performance of his 15 rushing yards against a horrible defense last week.

Sleeper: Felix Jones :DAL: vs. :CLE-NFL:
Felix showed some of that old burst last week, so look for him to have a solid game versus the Browns this week.

Wide Receivers - Mike

Must Start: Darius Heyward-Bey :OAK-NFL: vs :NO:
He's rounding back into form after his concussion, and the Saints can't stop the pass.
(other must starts: Amendola, Welker, D Thomas)

Must Sit: Mike Wallace :PIT-NFL: vs :BAL-NFL:
He's been a WR2 at best most of the season, but with Big Ben likely to be out this week, I see the Steelers doing their best to stick to the run and the short passing game.
(other must sits: D. Bowe, C. Shorts, D. Bryant)

Sleeper: Donald Jones :BUF: vs :MIA:
Jones has been trending up for the last three weeks, and this week he gets a Richard Marshall free Fins secondary, I like 100+ yards and a score this week.
(other sleepers: J. Maclin, Titus Young, Andre Roberts)

Tight Ends - Eric

Must Start: Greg Olsen :CAR: vs :TAM:
Olsen isn't the most reliable fantasy option.  In fact, not much on the Panthers is these days.  However, without being a biased fan of the Panthers, I think Olsen could be in for a decent day against a suspect Bucs-D.

Must Sit: Vernon Davis :SFO: vs :CHI:
New QB in the mix for the 49ers and the top defense on the other side of the ball equals a tough day for V-Davis.

Sleeper: Lance Kendricks :STL-NFL: vs :NYJ:
This could turn into a shootout between two unlikely teams.  Kendricks hasn't received a lot of attention this year, but this is a game that bodes well for Rams receivers - especially tight ends.

Defense - ProFSL

Must Start: Redskins :WAS-NFL: vs. :PHI-NFL:
Rule #6: Always start a defense against the 2012 Eagles.  They are a turnover machine and Foles' decision making wasn't exactly clean in relief of Vick last week.  The Redskins are opportunistic and will look to get a leg up on the Eagles as the who's who of the worst in the NFC East.

Must Sit: Cardinals :ARI: vs. :ATL-NFL:
The Cards have been a top fantasy defense this year but a matchup against the high-flying Falcons is too much for them to handle.

Sleeper: Bengals :CIN-NFL: vs. :KAN:
Rule #13: Always start a defense against the 2012 Chiefs.  Kansas City finds ways to shoot themselves in the foot.  Their starting QB is Cassel.  The Bengals-D hasn't been stellar this year but they are coming off a big-time win over the Giants in which their defense was amazing.
