NFL Fantasy 2022 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em Week 6: Intro

You have lineup questions. We have answers. At least we hope. Start 'Em & Sit 'Em has helped fantasy managers for years make those pressing lineup decisions. And you know what is a good decision? StartingPatrick Mahomes. But that's too obvious, so you won't see that here. Instead here are some of the most-pressing questions. And, if you can't find a player you are looking for, please check out thelatest NFL fantasy rankings right here.

It's a great feeling when your fantasy teams do well. But you know what's even better? When your fantasy teams do well and your real-life team pulls off the win. But what about when your favorite team wins, your fantasy teams do well and your baseball team wins to advance to the next playoff round. Well, sadly, I wouldn't know what that last one is like because I am a sad Mets fan who only knows disappointment. But I guess what matters most to you is that my fantasy teams are performing well. 

I hope you have enjoyed the start of the season, because things are about to get more challenging. If this was a horror movie, the first five weeks have been the fun part -- but we are about to get the first sight of the villain. Outside of injuries, your starting lineup has been whole for your matchups. That all changes next week when those pesky bye weeks start factoring in. For the first time this season, there will be four teams on bye. The Lions, Raiders, Titans and Texans will all be off next week. Not only does that take some really useful players out of our lineups, but it takes away four defenses that have been favorable to opposing players this season. 

Depth will be tested for the first time this season. Due to that, some of these names may look even deeper than you are accustomed to. But I want to include the streaming options that you can elevate from your bench or even from the waiver wire. We are also at the point of the season where players are no longer guaranteed spots in your lineup due to name. A struggling early round pick can be benched now. Some of the sits may surprise you!
