Just as it seemed the Packers had found a running back they liked in Cedric Benson, he then goes down with a foot injury that will likely cost him the rest of the season. Enter Alex Green. Green, a second-year player out of Hawaii, is going to make his first professional start this week against the Houston Texans. Green’s fantasy value has skyrocketed because of Benson’s injury. That, and fantasy owners pounce on any available running back who’s assured starting touches. However, Green is one of many players on our Week 6 Sit ‘Ems list. Starting touches does not always equal fantasy production, and Green is one of many players we expect to have a subpar week.
KICKERS - SIT ‘EM
Sebastian Janikowski (Oakland Raiders) @ Atlanta
A groin injury is a pretty bad thing for a kicker, and that’s just what Oakland kicker Sebastian Janikowski is dealing with right now. He’s questionable for this week’s game with the Falcons, and has been limited in practice. Expect him to play but that’s about all you should expect from him. Janikowski hasn’t attempted more than two field goals in a game this season, and with his team expected to struggle against the surging Falcons his opportunities will be even more limited. Atlanta is also giving up just 3.2 fantasy points per game to kickers, so you need to find a kicker with a better matchup.

Mason Crosby (Green Bay Packers) @ Houston
With just one double-digit fantasy performance and three games with no field goals made it’s been a disappointing season for Green Bay kicker Mason Crosby. Since hitting three field goals and two extra points against the Chicago Bears in Week 2 Crosby’s fantasy production has fallen each week to where he registered just one fantasy point last week. Don’t expect much improvement this week against a Texans defense that’s only given up five field goals all season and is allowing an average of just five fantasy points per game to kickers.
