Time is flying, we are now entering Week 6 of the 2021 season, and continuing our Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em series. This week, we have a long day of action with the second game in the UK being played. So a reminder to make sure you have your Miami and Jacksonville players out of your flex positions. I’ll actually be attending the game, so looking forward to seeing some NFL action after the Jets and Falcons game.
This week we have some bye weeks to deal with:
- Atlanta Falcons
- New Orleans Saints
- New York Jets
- San Francisco 49ers
As always, if you are struggling with a decision you can checkout our rankings for each Week. Or, if you want a more personal touch, reach out on social media. You can find us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Or jump into our Discord server.
Matt Stafford @NYG
Stafford is having a great start to his Rams career. This offense is flying, and the Giants defense is not really doing well this year. In fact, they are one of the worst in the league. Stafford is a must start really at this point of the season every week.
Trevor Lawrence v MIA (UK)
Lawrence was supposed to be the saviour for the Jaguars and the NFL, but that hasn’t really happened yet. He should have an opportunity to do well against a Miami defense that has looked shaky in their secondary.
Taylor Heinicke v KC
At some point, the Chiefs are going to improve on defense. Well, that is if they are actually going to be contenders. The Washington offense has found a way to move the ball, and the Chiefs haven’t found a way to stop it.
Mac Jones v DAL
The Patriots didn’t do what was expected last week. The Texans managed to put up a fight. The Cowboys have enough playmakers on defense that make me want to avoid Jones. Even if they have struggled to stop QB production this season.
Baker Mayfield v ARI
The Browns are a run-first offense, it’s their DNA. That doesn’t give alot of opportunity for Mayfield to air the ball out too much. He may have had a decent game against the Chargers, but alot of that came on chunk plays with poor coverage. Avoid.
