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.
WIDE RECEIVERS - SIT ‘EM
Anquan Boldin (Baltimore Ravens) vs. Dallas
In recent weeks Baltimore wide receiver Anquan Boldin has seen his fantasy value rise from consecutive double digit performances, including his 131-yard performance in Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns. However, Boldin’s value has come from his yardage. He hasn’t caught a touchdown since Week 1. We already mentioned that we don’t expect his quarterback, Flacco, to do much this week, and the Cowboys are the best defense against opposing wide receiving corps, limiting them to an average of just 13.8 points per game. Dallas has given up just two passing touchdowns to receivers, don’t expect Boldin to be the third.

Denarius Moore (Oakland Raiders) @ Atlanta
Widely owned but not oft started, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore has found some increased popularity with the bye weeks in full swing. His fantasy production thus far has been OK in the three games in which he played, but he’s not had a ton of receptions or yards. However, OK doesn’t cut it and this week’s matchup with the Atlanta Falcons doesn’t help things either. The Falcons rank seventh in the league in passing yards allowed, and in the last three weeks they’ve given up an average of just 13.6 fantasy points per game to opposing wide receiver corps. There are better bye week fill-ins available unless you’re in a deep league.
