Week 6 fantasy football is about to get crazy. Josh McCown was back at it again last week, setting the Cleveland Browns franchise record for yards and leading all quarterbacks is fantasy points. Tyrod Taylor and the Buffalo Bills offense clearly isn’t the same without Sammy Watkins. There are some juicy matchups going into Week 6.
QB: Blake Bortles
Besides Week 1, Bortles has no less then 15 points any other week. He’s starting to become a must start every week. The Texans allow 23 points per game to fantasy quarterbacks, so he’s worth a start this week.
QB: Colin Kaepernick
Kaepernick has been pretty bad most of this season, but had a good showing Sunday night against the New York Giants. Now he faces a Baltimore Ravens defense that is getting destroyed by every quarterback they play not named Michael Vick. Last week Josh McCown had a giant day, this week Kaepernick can do the same.
RB: Mark Ingram
This ones about the matchup as Mark Ingram faces off against an Atlanta Falcons defense that’s allowed nine touchdowns to running backs.
RB: LeGarrette Blount
The Patriot’s game plan when they play the Colts is usually a run-heavy one. If that stays true for the matchup this Sunday night then Blount will be the main beneficiary of it, as he was last January during the playoffs.
WR: Anquan Boldin
As I said before, the Ravens defense is a liability at this point. Boldin also had a good fantasy week last Sunday and will receive most of the targets from Kaepernick. He has 37 targets this season while no other teammate has more than 25.
WR: Mike Wallace
Yes, Mike Wallace can still be effective. He scored a touchdown and had 80 yards last game and the Chiefs secondary he’s playing this week gets beat a lot. He is worth a start.
TE: Julius Thomas
Thomas only played a full handful of snaps last week and caught both of his two targets. Jacksonville should be able to move the ball against the Texans, and Thomas should get a lot more targets now that he’s been a full go all week.
QB: Josh McCown
McCown has had some impressive weeks recently but you can’t even think about starting him this week against the Broncos defense. They are shutting down every quarterback they play.
QB: Mike Vick
It looks like Ben Roethlisberger will be out at least another week, but don’t try and get cute by thinking Vick’s going to do some damage. Especially not against the Arizona Cardinals.
RB: Jonathan Stewart
Stewart has yet to get into the end zone this season and been underwhelming overall all for fantasy owners. It won’t get much easier against the Seahawks this Sunday.
RB: Jeremy Hill
He’s losing out on the majority of carries to Gio Bernard and the most damage he has been doing is in short yardage red zone situations. He’s not worth the risk.
WR: Andre Johnson
His two-touchdown Week 5 performance wasn’t a fluke, but it won’t happen again anytime soon. Johnson still hasn’t gotten in sync with Luck yet, who should return this week.
WR: Jarvis Landry
The Dolphins best receiver is a victim of being on a horrible team. He could be worth starting in PPR leagues but it will be tough for him to find the end zone.
TE: Charles Clay
Clay is coming off a dud last week. Now he will face the Bengals, who shut down tight ends and Tyrod Taylor may miss the game with a knee injury. Not a good combination.
