Fantasy football: Week 6 studs and duds

Stud players who should give you double-digit points in Week 6:

Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's return from suspension should boost the fantast football production for everyone on the Steelers. One guy who has really missed Roethlisberger is tight end Heath Miller. He has been average at best and still can be found on many leagues' waiver wires. Grab him if you need tight end help. I see him getting 50-60 yards this week and at least one touchdown.
If you need receiver help St. Louis wideout Danny Amendola gets a huge fantasy boost with St. Louis receiver Mark Clayton out for the season. Amendola is a slot receiver who should get a huge bump in receptions, yards and TD productions.
Reports indicate the Jets are planning to open up their passing game andthat means a lot of production for receiver Santonio Holmes. His production will rise while Braylon Edwards and Jericho Cotchery numbers should take a hit

Duds to avoid in Week 6:

I usually like to take a shot with quarterbacks getting their first NFL start because they are pumped up to perform well to keep that starting gig. However....when it comes to Colt McCoy starting for Cleveland in Week 6, avoid him. He has the unenviable task of making his debut against the Steelers. It won't be pretty.
Stay away from Seattle players this week, including QB Matt Hasselbeck and newly acquired back Marshawn Lynch. Seattle is facing Chicago and that No. 1 ranked Bears defense is nasty.
I would also stay away from Dallas backs Marion Barber and Felix Jones. They face Minnesota and the Vikings defense is tough against the run. I see the Vikings scoring early and often in that game and that means Dallas will be throwing more in an effort to play catchup.
