Start ‘Em:Taylor Kelly – Arizona State vs. ColoradoThe Colorado pass defense is about as strong as a wet paper bag and could have real trouble containing Kelly this week. Look for Kelly to find Jalen Strong, Chris Coyle, and DJ Foster all day long. It would not surprise to see four or five touchdown tosses from Kelly against the Buffs.STAFF PICK - KEVIN MOUNT      David Fales – San Jose State vs. Colorado StateFales has awakened from an early season slumber and has topped 300 yards passing in the last three games. He is likely to make it four in a row with a bad Colorado State pass defense on the slate.  STAFF PICK - KEVIN MOUNT    James Franklin – Missouri at Georgia
 Georgia is showing that they have the special ability to give up points to any caliber of offense. Missouri is showing that they can be a contender this year and a healthy Franklin is the reason why. He’s completing over 65% of his passes and has eleven total touchdowns in the last three weeks. Don’t be scared off of Franklin because they’re playing a ranked team – Georgia’s defense is not that good.
 STAFF PICK – JOE ARPASI

 Keith Wenning – Ball State vs. Kent State
 Wenning is hot, I mean RED HOT lately. He has thrown for 300 yards in every game and thrown for at least 2 touchdowns in all but one game this season. Smart fantasy owners have learned to trust MACtion in October and November. Find yourself in that same company and play Wenning this week.

 Logan Thomas - Virginia Tech vs. Pittsburgh
 Things have been really clicking for Thomas over the past few weeks, and he’ll continue to put up nice numbers against Pittsburgh. Thomas won’t put up a huge number, but fantasy owners can expect a solid day that likely includes 250+ total yards and a few scores.
 STAFF PICK – RYAN MOSS

 Connor Halliday - Washington State vs. Oregon State
 Halliday threw for over 500 yards and three touchdowns against a poor California defense last week. Look for him to top the 300 yard mark with at least a couple of scores, in what should be a shoot out against Oregon State.
 STAFF PICK – RYAN MOSS

 Sit ‘Em:

 Zach Mettenberger –LSU vs. Florida
 Mettenberger has topped 300 yards passing in his last two games and has been a nice surprise to fantasy owners. The fun may all come to an end this week as Florida comes to Death Valley. The Gators rank 6th in the nation in pass defense and have only allowed three passing touchdowns on the year. Leave this Tiger on the bench in what could be a low scoring contest.
 STAFF PICK – KEVIN MOUNT         

 Rakeem Cato – Marshall vs. Florida Atlantic
 Cato has been a big time disappointment to fantasy owners so far in 2013 and could continue that trend in Week Seven. He will be facing a very good FAU pass defense that ranks 11th in the nation and could leave Cato very frustrated. Stay away from Cato this week.
 STAFF PICK - KEVIN MOUNT

 C.J. Brown – Maryland vs. Virginia
 Brown left last week’s game against Florida State with concussion like symptoms. There’s still been no solid decision on him playing this week. While a match-up with Virginia looks good on paper, if Brown does play its hard to expect that he will be 100%. Play it safe if the coaches say Brown will play and wait one more week before putting him in your line-up.
 STAFF PICK – JOE ARPASI        

 Connor Wood – Colorado at Arizona State
 While Wood started the season on fire, it was against poor competition. Since Colorado hit Pac-12 play Wood’s production has dropped dramatically. This game has the potential for “garbage time” points but so did last week’s matchup with Oregon. Wood didn’t produce last week and most likely won’t produce this week either.
 STAFF PICK – JOE ARPASI        

 Nate Sudfeld- Indiana vs. Michigan State
 Sudfeld and the Hoosiers are coming off a big win against Penn State, a game in which Sudfeld threw for over 300 yards and two scores. The Hoosiers have scored over forty points in all five of their games, but they haven’t faced a defense like Michigan State yet. Look for the Spartans to contain the Hoosiers and limit Sudfeld’s production.
 STAFF PICK – RYAN MOSS

 Vlad Lee - Georgia Tech vs. BYU
 I was a big Vlad Lee fan to start the year, but he has been flat out miserable the past two weeks. Things don’t get any easier for him this week against BYU, so the struggles will likely continue. Avoid Lee this week and wait to see if he rebounds at all moving forward.
