Here we are in week 6 of the NFL fantasy football season and difficult decisions need to be made. With byes decimating some teams, it's hard to decide who to take a flier on. Here's what you should do with four of them.

So what should Blount owners do now that their missing a fantasy footballer who wouldn't pile up yards, but had found the end zone three times in four and a half games.
Six-time Pro Bowler claims he will be ready to play in less than a month

The Pittsburgh Steelers (2-2) have struggled out of the gate this NFL season, thanks in large part to injuries. And while Ben Roethlisberger (sprained foot) and Rashard Mendenhall (hamstring) grab most of the headlines, the Steelers' defense has not been immune to the injury bug.
Curtis Painter made his first career NFL start at quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And while he didn't lead the Colts to victory, he did play fairly well, completing 13-of-30 pass attempts for 281 yards and two touchdowns.
