Bye Week Alternatives – Week 6
Big Ben is probably the only one you’re counting on, but Trent Edwards has been a popular pickup of late. If you are relying on Kerry Collins or Damon Huard, you’ve got bigger problems than I can address. The Miami-Houston game presents a couple of options. Chad Pennington and either Sage Rosenfels or Matt Schaub should be decent plug-and-play guys.
Marshawn Lynch, Larry Johnson, Willie Parker, Chris Johnson, and LenDale White are on bye. Rookies Steve Slaton and Matt Forte should be able to produce against Miami and Atlanta respectivley. Both Darren McFadden and Michael Bush should put up fantasy numbers vs. New Orleans.
You need to replace Lee Evans, Dwayne Bowe, Santonio Holmes, and Hines Ward. Antwaan Randle El could turn in a decent performance against St. Louis. Ted Ginn, Jr. could be a sneaky play vs. Houston. The Giants’ Domenik Hixon could produce vs. Cleveland.
You’ll have to find an alternative for Tony Gonzalez and Heath Miller. I like Zach Miller to have another strong performance for Oakland against the Saints.
