5th Down: Week 16
« on: December 20, 2012, 03:50:39 PM »
This article was brought to you by Facebook Status where you can check your Daily Facebook Status when posting about :Commish: ProFSL!

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!

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15

Quarterback - Billy

Must Start: Tom Brady :NE: vs :JAC:
Brady will look to rebound after throwing 2 INTs last week against :SFO: and what better team to rebound against than a horrible Jaguars defense. Brady will have a field day against their defense throwing for at least 250 yards and 2 TDs.

Must Sit: Russell Wilson :SEA-NFL: vs :SFO:
Wilson has been impressive thus far but will hit a wall known as the 49ers defense this weekend. The 49ers don't give up a lot of yards to opposing offenses and that should continue this weekend.

Sleeper: Greg McElroy :NYJ: vs :SDG:
McElroy gets the nod this week over Mark Sanchez against an underachieving Chargers team. He won't light it up but could still have a solid game against San Diego

Running Back - JMAC

Must Start: Adrian Peterson :MIN-NFL: vs :HOU-NFL:
IS there any doubt that he is THE must start player period at this stage. Chip on his shoulder and going for the record. Over 1300 yards in his last 8 games, enough said. He will do what he does, period!!!!
Other Must Starts- Alfred Morris, WAS vs PHI, CJ Spiller, BUF vs MIA

Must Sit: Chris Johnson :TEN: vs :GB:
I know he looked to have a good game last week but that one 94 yd td run was all he did, other than that he was limited to less than 2 ypc. Look for GB to shut him down and keep on rolling.
Other Must Sits- Trent Richardson, CLE vs DEN, Beanie Wells, AZ vs CHI

Sleeper: Vick Ballard :IND: vs :KAN:
Had his first 100 yard game last week and this is a clinching playoff berth game for IND, so look for them to put up a solid game plan with Ballard getting his work in vs a suspect KC def.

Wide Receivers - Mike

Must Start: Dez Bryant :DAL: vs :NO:
88 has been living up to the hype as of late, has he finally figured it all out? Who knows, but he's fighting through injury, and making the big catches, the Boys are starting to click.

Must Sit: Michael Crabtree :SFO: vs :SEA-NFL:
On the Crabtree bandwagon after his big game in Boston? Well jump now, he does nothing against the Seahawks and their big physical corners.

Sleeper: Jeremy Kerley :NYJ: vs :SDG:
So the Jets finally decide to let the sound, yet vanilla McElroy play ball, it's going to be a good thing for the Jets pass catchers, even Braylon Edwards might make an appearance.

Tight Ends - Eric

Must Start: Tony Gonzalez :ATL-NFL: vs :DET-NFL:
This year has been much nicer to Gonzalez owners with 8 TD's and almost 900 yds. This week shouldn't be any different. The Lions have allowed 6 TD's over the past 8 weeks. Feel free to deploy Gonzo as you normally would.

Must Sit: Jermaine Gresham :CIN-NFL: vs :PIT-NFL:
While Gresham has been a solid option over the past few weeks, this week he has a tough matchup. The Steelers have been really good against opposing TE in allowing the 3rd least fantasy points. They have allowed 5 TD all year and allowed over 70 yds in just ONE week (last week vs Dallas). Look else where if possible.

Sleeper: Kyle Rudolph :MIN-NFL: vs :HOU-NFL:
Although Rudolph has been relatively quiet over the past few week, this he week he has a good matchup. The Texans give up the 6th most fantasy points to opposing TE's. 5 TD's over as many week and over 50 yds rec in 4 of those 5 weeks. Rudolph can guide you through a foggy Christmas Eve.

Defense - Billy

Must Start: Chicago :CHI: vs :ARI:
The Bears defense has fallen off as of late, but they should be able to rebound against a horrible Cardinals offense.

Must Sit: Seattle :SEA-NFL: vs :SFO:
The Seattle defense has been dominant this year, but that probably will not continue this week against the 49ers. San Fran's offense has been playing well lately and even the Seattle defense probably won't stop that.

Sleeper: Washington :WAS-NFL: vs :PHI-NFL:
Washington's defense has played better as of late (mainly in the 2nd half) but they will be going up against an Eagles offense that has made any defense look great lately. Last time these 2 played, the Skins defense held the Philly offense to only 6 points, 257 yards, and forced three turnovers.
