Start ‘Em:Mike Davis – South Carolina vs. KentuckyDavis is a beast and is coming off a 167-yard and three-touchdown effort against UCF last week. He will be facing a Kentucky defense that got gashed for 176 yards by Matt Jones last week. Expect Davis to tear through the Cats this week.STAFF PICK – KEVIN MOUNT         Kenneth Dixon – La Tech vs. UTEPDixon has been a fantasy disappointment in the early part of 2013. He appears to be healthy and could go off this week against a weak UTEP defense ranked 110th against the run. Look for well over 100 yards on the ground and a couple of scores from this Bulldog in Week Six.STAFF PICK – KEVIN MOUNT         Matt Jones- Florida vs. ArkansasThe Matt Jones everyone expected to see finally emerged last weekend against Kentucky. It appears he has taken back the top spot from Mack Brown and faces an Arkansas defense that was gashed on the ground by Texas A&M. Look for the Gators to pound the ball on ground and Jones to have over 100 yards and at least one touchdown.STAFF PICK – RYAN MOSS Thomas Tyner- Oregon vs. ColoradoWith De’Anthony Thomas expected to sit out this week, Tyner will have a big game. He moves up to second on the depth chart, behind Byron Marshall, and should get plenty of touches. He has look good so far this season and that will continue against a struggling Colorado defense.STAFF PICK – RYAN MOSSSit ‘Em:DeAnthony Thomas – Oregon vs. ColoradoThe ‘Black Mamba” tweaked his ankle last week against Cal and is questionable to play this week versus Colorado. The Ducks will not need Thomas to beat the Buffs and may play it safe and let him sit this week; fantasy owners should do the same.STAFF PICK – KEVIN MOUNT         Beau Blankenship –Ohio vs. AkronMuch was expected from Blankenship this year after running for over 1600 yards and scoring 15 touchdowns in 2012. He has been a major disappointment and is splitting carries with Ryan Boykin. It might be time to cut bait if he can’t do something against a weak Akron defense.STAFF PICK – KEVIN MOUNT         Mark Weisman- Iowa vs. Michigan StateWeisman is one of my favorite players in college football and he is a consistent performer. While I expect him to get a lot of carries against Michigan State, I don’t think he’ll produce much. The Spartans have a stingy run defense so Weisman will have a hard time getting to the 100 yard mark.STAFF PICK – RYAN MOSSTreyvon Green- Northwestern vs. Ohio StateGreen really stepped up for the Wildcats with the injury to Venric Mark, but he has two things going against him this weekend. First, Mark will be back on the field and will cut into Green’s touches. Secondly, he faces an Ohio State defense that is coming off an impressive performance against Wisconsin’s running game. Don’t expect big numbers from Green this week.STAFF PICK – RYAN MOSS
