With so many players injured or on their bye, here are some to consider starting and sitting in Week 6.
DeSean Jackson (WR, Eagles) - Detroit is still struggling in the secondary, so you can expect the Eagles to test them deep with Jackson often.
Christian Ponder (QB, Vikings) - You could do a lot worse than Ponder against the Redskins this week, if you are desperate. He's emerging as a solid threat for the Vikings.
LaRod Stephens-Howling (RB, Cardinals) - This newly promoted starting RB is shifty and going up against the atrocious Bills defense.
Stevan Ridley (RB, Patriots) - I'm out on a limb here, but the Pats have gone small against tougher, bigger defenses like Seattle and may not give Ridley as many opportunities this week.
Martellus Bennett (TE, Giants) - The 49ers match up well against TEs and Eli Manning has plenty of other targets.
Carson Palmer (QB, Raiders) - The Falcons have been ballhawks, and Palmer isn't the most cautious QB.
