The fantasy football Week 6 schedule is here and some players to start or sit include Marshawn Lynch, Carlos Hyde, Arian Foster, LeSean McCoy, Andrew Luck, Chris Ivory, Karlos Williams, Mike Wallace, Rueben Randle, Odell Beckham, Eli Manning, DeMarco Murray, Sammy Watkins and John Brown heading into the weekend.

Some players are dealing with injuries and coming back from injuries, while others have the chance to step up with other players out for this week. Marshawn Lynch appears ready to return for the Seahawks and he is a solid start option for fantasy owners after dealing with a hamstring issue. LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams are players to watch, as they both missed last week but could be close to returning. Until it's confirmed, those players should be sit options for the Bills.

Andrew Luck has missed two games and could return to play against the Patriots on Sunday night, while Chris Ivory is banged up, but all signs point to him playing against the Redskins. Mike Wallace is dealing with an injury and could be in question this week, while the Giants have some players trying to get healthy for Monday night. Eli Manning is a great start option after his game last week, but if he is without Odell Beckham or Rueben Randle, fantasy owners may want to re-think that for this week.

The Buffalo Bills have been dealing with injuries and after Williams and McCoy missed the game last week, the players could be ready to return. McCoy has been dealing with a hamstring injury and according to, McCoy is probable for the game this week. As long as McCoy is ready to go, he is a START pick for the Bills. McCoy has only played in three games, but the team wants to get him going and if he is in the lineup, fantasy owners should not hesitate to start him.

Arian Foster is another solid START option this week, as he had 28 touches in his last game and should get even more moving forward. Foster was limited in practice this week, but he is set to play on Sunday and he is a solid RB1 option for this week for fantasy owners. Foster has only played in two games this season, but he has over 150 total yards for the Texans. Sammy Watkins has been practicing and he is expected to be back for the Bills. Fantasy owners should look to start Watkins as long as he is ready to go.

Carlos Hyde was held out of some practice reps and was limited on Thursday, but the Sac Bee reports that he should be ready to start on Sunday against the Ravens. Hyde has 375 yards this season and is a solid start option for fantasy owners. Andrew Luck is expected to make his return this week along with Marshawn Lynch and both of those players are hard START options as long as they are playing, even after coming off of injuries. Chris Ivory is expected to be ready for the Jets on Sunday after the team had a bye after the Dolphins game in London.

For next week after the bye in deeper leagues, Christine Michael is worth a start, as the Cowboys have made a point to try and get him more involved in offense. Michael is a risky start, but it could be a high upside option for players heading into the Week 7 game against the Giants. Cowboys are on a bye this week.
