It's definitely a major burden when a starting WR underachieves for your fantasy football team.

WRs are expected to score so many more points now that pro football is much more reliant on the passing game.

To the end, here are the three worst WR starts for Week 6.


3. Brandon Marshall, Miami (at NY Jets)

In Week 1 Marshall caught seven passes for 139 yard against the New England Patriots.

However, he's only scored one TD this season, and has only compiled 313 yards on 22 receptions.

And that was with Chad Henne under center, who's now out, and backup Matt Moore is in.

Therefore, sit Marshall because not only is he not going to get targets, but he's going to see double-coverage wherever he goes.

Also, Moore's going to get blitzed quite often to limit his time in the pocket.

Not to mention the Jets have a Top 10 pass defense, so even if Henne was under center, it wouldn't make a difference.

2. Mike Sims-Walker, St. Louis (at Green Bay)

He's simply not answering the call that the Rams wanted him to, because Mike Sims-Walker is QB Sam Bradford's best target, but it obviously hasn't been working.

11 catches for 139 yards from your expected No. 1 WR is very disappointing, and going up against Green Bay this week isn't going to make anything better.

The Rams can't run the ball to setup the pass, and are nowhere near good enough to have one-dimensional success.

It may even be a bad idea to drop Sims-Walker for someone else, because his productivity this season is going to be horrendous, let alone this game against the Packers at Lambeau Field.


1. Mike Williams, Tampa Bay (vs. New Orleans)

No, not the Mike Williams from USC, he's on a bye this week, but Tampa's Mike Williams isn't helping his common name any more with his lack of production.

19 catches for 183 yards, and one TD though five games isn't hardly anything from what was anticipated this year.

It also doesn't help that QB Josh Freeman has thrown only three TDs to six picks.

Williams definitely has the potential to be a solid receiving threat in the NFL, but until he starts to prove it, have him sit the bench in fantasy, because the Bucs' won't be able to keep up with the Saints this week.

And even if they try, all New Orleans will have to do is drop seven into coverage because by the way Freeman is throwing the ball right now, he will make multiple mistakes.
