Every week, The Fantasy Footballers ask followers on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, who fantasy football owners are having the toughest Sit/Start decisions on. Get assistance with The Fantasy Footballers Sit/Start tool — based on Andy, Jason, and Mike‘s weekly rankings. Here are the three of the most popular requests for Week 6:

Doug Baldwin or John Brown?

WR Doug Baldwin
Seattle Seahawks @ Oakland Raiders
Consensus: 21 / Andy: 22 / Jason: 20 / Mike: 23

WR John Brown
Baltimore Ravens @ Tennessee Titans
Consensus: 19 / Andy: 19 / Jason: 19 / Mike: 19

It’s a full sweep in favor of John Brown. After an extremely disappointing Week 5 from Doug Baldwin, go with the guy who got 14 targets last week. The Seahawks are near the bottom of the league in pass plays, so until we see Baldwin return to form with Russell Wilson, he’s hard to trust.

 


 Andy Dalton or Jameis Winston?

QB Andy Dalton
Cincinnati Bengals vs Pittsburgh Steelers
Consensus: 11 / Andy: 12 / Jason: 11 / Mike: 12

QB Jameis Winston
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Atlanta Falcons
Consensus: 5 / Andy: 5 / Jason: 6 / Mike: 7

While this is a popular search in the Start/Sit Tool, the results and rankings lean heavily towards Winston over Dalton. In Jameis Winston’s first start of 2018, he’ll take on a beat up and very beatable Falcons defense. Andy Dalton himself put up 300+ passing yards and 3 TDs against the Falcons. The Buccaneers/Falcons game should be fantasy points galore and Winston should have a big part in that.

Cameron Brate or Trey Burton?

TE Cameron Brate
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Atlanta Falcons
Consensus: 7 / Andy: 10 / Jason: 6 / Mike: 6

TE Trey Burton
Chicago Bears @ MIA
Consensus: 8 / Andy: 8/ Jason: 8 / Mike: 10

*These rankings are assuming O.J. Howard is Out. However, he surprisingly returned to full practice on Friday. Brate isn’t the worst streaming option even IF Howard plays. Brate has shown a rapport, especially in the endzone, with Jameis Winston. However, if Howard is in, Burton becomes the automatic play here.
