Week 6 fantasy roundup
The RotoExperts.com Staff reviews all of the Week 6 games from a fantasy perspective.

This is why you ignore the matchup and you don't bench your studs.
The Baltimore offense looked putrid, and one should expect more bad days to come. However, two items worth mentioning: 1)
And sometimes you play the matchup. Before my editors go berserk about me contradicting myself, let me say that if your stud is healthy, you play him. But if he's not 100 percent and the matchup is not ideal (oh, like say
The Rams scored 19 points without scoring an offensive touchdown. Hopefully you read our preview, and with the exception of
The Washington offense wasn't much better, although
