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.
WIDE RECEIVERS–START ’EM
Dwayne Bowe (Kansas City Chiefs) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bowe has a doozey of a matchup with the Bucs being one of four teams who have already given up over 1,000 yards receiving through the first five games. Now Bowe is the typical garbage time receiver, getting most of his points when the defenses have laid back and given Matt Cassel the middle of the field. So this is a good game to watch Bowe for the rest of the season because this could be a tightly contested game, since both defenses have a tendency to give up the big play. However, this time it’s Brady Quinn and no Cassel chucking him the football.

Antonio Brown (Pittsburgh Steelers) at Tennessee Titans
Brown continues to lead the Steelers in receptions, yards, and has been targeted no less than eight times weekly in the first four games of the season. Why we’ve liked Brown so much is that he has a guy like Mike Wallace opposite of him who commands so much attention with his speed. Brown then gets single coverage and goes to work. He’s due for his second touchdown of the season though and we think he’s got a great chance against a weak Titans defense. Plus, he is an excellent posses ion receiver and will be good for 6-8 receptions.
