Fantasy Football is all about the matchups. A player can only play as well as the opposing defense lets them, so that’s why it’s important to look at each player's matchup leading up to each fantasy football week. Now that we’re in week six, we’re getting a better idea as to which defenses you want to face, and which you don’t. So, as time goes on, sleepers should be easier to give out, right? 

Wrong.

Here’s how I did last week:

QB: Ryan Tannehill, 12 Points

QB: Teddy Bridgewater DNP

RB: Mark Ingram, 4 Points

RB: Isiah Pacheco, 0 Points

WR: Corey Davis, 5 Points

WR: Nelson Agholor, 0 Points

Yikes.

I’m going to give it my best shot here in week six, so if you want to ride along with me you can take prop bets on any of my players through any of these New Jersey Online Casinos

Quarterbacks:

Justin Fields (Owned in 39% of leagues)

We’re starting off with a bang here, taking questionably the worst starting QB in the NFL (second worst, I forgot about Baker Mayfield). But Fields actually has a decent chance here in week six to turn his season around. The Commanders have given up an average of 20 points a game to opposing QBs, and have only succeeded in holding opposing QBs to under 200 yards through the air once. You also get whatever added rushing yards Fields may accumulate throughout the game, so this isn’t as bad of a pick as you think it is. 

Zach Wilson (Owned in 14% of leagues)

Before you laugh me out of the room, hear me out. I spent all of 2021 watching Zach Wilson struggle week after week, so I know how low his floor is. So far this year, though, Wilson has been great. Well, good. He only has one touchdown, but he managed to not make a single mistake in their week 5 win over the Dolphins, which is a huge step up for the young cougar-hunter. Here in week six, the Jets will be traveling into Green Bay to take on the Packers. This is the same Packers team that just lost to the Giants in week five, and will be traveling back from London in order to play this game. The Jets are hot right now, so I’m flying high with gang green. 

Running Backs

Joshua Kelley (Owned in 12% of leagues)

Joshua Kelley saw some solid reps in week five operating as the Chargers' number two back and even found the endzone in the Chargers' 30-28 win over the Browns. He could see some decent touch volume again here in Week Six against a Broncos defense that ranks in the middle of the pack against the run, but is first in passing yards per game allowed. 

Tevin Coleman (Owned in 5% of leagues)

Coleman had a great first game of the season last week, totaling 67 yards (rushing and receiving combined)  and a touchdown. He could retain a role in the offense heading into week six here, as the Niners are taking on a Falcons defense that has allowed an average of 100 yards to opposing running backs. 

Wide Receivers

Chase Claypool (Owned in 43% of leagues)

Claypool had his first week of note last week, amassing 50 yards on 5 catches in Buffalo against the Bills. While Claypool’s week six matchup isn’t favorable (against Tampa Bay) I do love one thing about him: he was targeted nine times last week by rookie QB Kenny Pickett. Pickett also attempted 52 passes in week five, so the Steelers aren’t afraid to let him ball out. Claypool is a risky pick but could have a high ceiling. 

Rondale Moore (Owned in 34% of leagues)

Moore was second on the Cardinals in terms of receiving yards in week five, amassing 68 yards on 7 catches (with eight targets). Murray seemed to look Moore’s way often, and the Seattle defense may be more invested in keeping the ball away from Hollywood Brown or Zach Ertz, so Moore may find himself with a good week yet again here in week six.
