Here are our “Fantasy Football Start ‘Ems” for Week 6 of the 2012 season. As a reminder, everyone knows to start elite players like Aaron Rodgers, Calvin Johnson, and LeSean McCoy, so when we compile our list we make sure to focus on serviceable players that will benefit from a favorable matchup.
TIGHT ENDS–START ’EM
Brent Celek (Philadelphia Eagles) vs. Detroit Lions
The temperature cooled off for Celek in recent weeks as the health of Jeremy Maclin improved–that has left playmaker DeSean Jackson more open. Because Michael Vick is trying to cut down on forcing the ball into good coverage, the six-year vet Celek, remains a big, reliable target for Vick, even though Clay Harbor has taken some good red zone looks away. Celek didn’t do much last week but he did catch his first touchdown and we think he can only go up from here. As for the Lions, they’re giving up the sixth-most points to tight ends, including 5.3 receptions, 63.3 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game.

Owen Daniels (Houston Texans) at Green Bay Packers
We’re riding the hot hand in Houston and recommending Daniels as a starter this week. He’s scored a touchdown in three straight games and is starting to get that sweet range of yardage (75-plus yards) fantasy owners hope to see out of their tight ends. Daniels was probably picked as a fantasy backup in several leagues and now he’s giving those owners options to trade the bigger name and upgrade another position. When you run ball as well as the Texans, and you have a stud like Andre Johnson, it’s so easy for Matt Schaub to pass it to Daniels, who no longer has to fight for looks with Joel Dreessen. Daniels especially should get several open looks against that aggressive, blitzing Packers’ D.
