The toughest part about a week in which six teams are on bye is that some players that we’d normally recommend benching are starts simply because of diluted playing pool. Now, some of the names on this list are big names, as usual, because we’re not going to recommend benching somebody who you already know should be benched. This list is for the guys who you think could start but find themselves with a bad situation. Take Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, for example. He’s averaged 19 fantasy points a game in his last three games and looked good last week on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles. Yet, Stafford finds himself on this list.
KICKERS - SIT ‘EM
Mason Crosby (Green Bay Packers) @ St. Louis
Typically kickers behind powerful offenses get loads of points, but as the Packers have struggled this season so has Mason Crosby. Crosby has posted just one double-digit fantasy performance this season, and that was in Week 2. He’s only attempted two field goals in the last three weeks and he hasn’t hit a field goal since Week 3. So his opportunities have been limited, and when he did get them he didn’t do anything. Simply put, there are better kickers available to pick up right now. Crosby simply isn’t worth starting.

Justin Tucker (Baltimore Ravens) vs. Houston
In the first two weeks of the season Baltimore kicker Justin Tucker scored 26 fantasy points and was an incredibly popular pick up. He hasn’t scored double digit fantasy points in a game since then. He’s only averaged seven fantasy points a game over the last three weeks, and this week’s matchup with Houston is not a favorable one. The Texans are giving up just 5.2 fantasy points per game to opposing kickers, and only one field goal has been made against Houston in the last three weeks.
