Before we get to our Week 6 fantasy football quarterback rankings, let’s take a look at three perennial studs, who have been doing wonderful dud impersonations so far in 2015.
Are the following players done? Or they guys you want to target in a trade? Let’s play a little buy or sell:
Andrew Luck, Colts — Luck has missed the past 2 games with a shoulder injury, but is expected to play in Week 6. He has yet to get in sync with T.Y. Hilton or Andre Johnson and has 7 interceptions. So, of course, I’m looking at a BUY on Luck. The shoulder is a bit of a concern, but if he’s healthy, Luck will get on track. All signs point to him being healthy now.
Peyton Manning, Broncos — Manning is on pace to throw more interceptions than TDs. Do I think that’s going to happen? No, I don’t. But I do think Manning’s days as an every-week fantasy starter are coming to an end. This despite the weapons he has in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. No running game, poor line play and Peyton’s inability to make all the throws make Manning the Elder a SELL candidate.
Matthew Stafford, Lions — Stafford has looked pretty rough and was benched in Week 5. A major issue is Detroit’s inability to run the ball — the Lions are last in the league by a wide margin. That ground game will improve (kind of has to, right?) and Stafford still has Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. For those reasons, you have to BUY on Stafford as there is a great chance he comes around as the season moves along.
