Week 6 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em: 6 Players To Start During NFL Bye-Week Blues

The dreaded bye weeks continue as six teams are idle this week. Fortunately for fantasy owners, on paper there are a number of players that should see a breakout this Sunday.

Of the players listed some are just plug-and-plays but others might have some lasting power. Remember, fantasy is as much about matchups as it is anything else and there are definitely some tricky games I’d like to avoid.

I would stay away from Buffalo’s offense in New York. The G-Men were embarrassed at home by Seattle last week and need a strong showing this week.

Expect the 49ers to be playing from behind against Detroit and Frank Gore to suffer because of it.

I wouldn’t touch anyone associated with Jacksonville Jaguars offense against a vaunted and rejuvenated Steelers defense but the Steelers have a ton of good options.

The Packers, Patriots and Saints' usual suspects should all perform well and Carolina and Atlanta should be a fun game as well.

With that here are six breakout players to look for in Week 6.
