2012 Fantasy Football Sleepers Week 6

Benny Sieu - US PRESSWIRE
Every week you need to be aware of the sleeper starters in case of underperforming players, injuries or bye weeks.

Here are the players to consider in no particular order:


Vick Ballard (RB, IND) - Ballard takes over for Donald Brown who will be out the next three weeks.  Ballard is not as great an option in PPR leagues as Mewelde Moore who will handling passing downs.  If you are looking for a sleeper for Week 6 then look towards Ballard.

Alex Green (RB, GB) - Green is a big-time gamble as James Starks is going to get in the action as well.  GB is going up against Houston with their fairly stout defense.  Green is a pure gamble play with upside.

Kevin Kolb (ARZ, QB) - Kolb did not have a great week from a fantasy perspective last week, but goes up against Buffalo in Week 6.  I expect him to bounce back against a team that can be thrown on.  Look for Kolb to bounce back and he should only be started in 2 QB leagues or leagues that allow a QB in the flex position.

James Jones (WR, GB) - Jones is going to find the end-zone again in Week 6 which should be enough to give him the start.  As long as Jennings is out of action then Jones is a solid fill in.

Rueban Randle (WR, NYG) - Randle is going to take some work because you have to watch and see if Hakeem Nicks will be playing in Week 6.  Only start Randle if Nicks is out.  Keep in mind that NYG play inthe 4 o'clock games so this is a high risk option.

Kyle Rudolph (TE, MIN) - Jerome Simpson could be out another week leading to Rudolph being the second receiving option in MIN.  This week Rudolph should find the end-zone and make a solid starter for Week 6.

Brent Celek (TE, PHI) - Philly takes on Detroit this week and this should be a high flying game.  If you are in a PPR league Celek is a wonderful TE starter for this week.

William Powell (RB, ARZ) - another risky RB starter but he is going to get the first crack against Buffalo and if can start hot he will be starting the entire game.  He has a high risk/reward factor so please be aware of this fact when starting him this week.
