Start Em

Michael Floyd, WR, Arizona Cardinals

I’m guessing that you may have noticed a trend here. If you did, it’s because we also have Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer listed as a must-start this week.

Palmer’s return to the field will pay great dividends to both Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald. Both had a decent showing last week against the Washington Redskins, scoring at least 10 fantasy football points.

Floyd is likely to see an increase in every area of the stat sheet this Sunday when the Cardinals head to southern California to take on the Raiders in Oakland.

Palmer is likely to attempt at least 30 passes this week and the Raiders D has allowed three passing scores in the previous two games. Things could get out of hand in this one, out of hand and in the favor of Floyd’s fantasy football owners.

DeSean Jackson, WR, Washington Redskins

DeSean Jackson is on fire as of late. Even when matched up with the Seahawks Richard Sherman, Jackson had the better outcome — again, even from a fantasy football stand point.

Redskins QB, Kirk Cousins has targeted Jackson at least 11 times in two of the previous four games. In return, Jackson has had 115 and a touchdown in three of those four contests.

Furthermore, the Tennessee Titans are the Skins opponent in week 7. The Titans defense has allowed at least 84 yards OR a TD to a wideout in every game this year. Jackson has flourished with Cousins under center, and things look as though they’ll continue to get better.
