Fantastic busts of week 6: Devontae Booker, Kadarius Toney go from hot waiver withdrawals to risky ‘starts’

| Sport Latest News Headlines | Today Headlines

We all know the failures of the entire season, look no further than WR68 in the standard leagues, Allen Robinson, but potential failed performances await behind the scenes every week. Whether it’s because a player loses playing time, gets injured, faces a tough matchup, or is simply due to a cold streak, there are a number of reasons why they can slip in their lineups. Identifying potential falls is paramount and can help you avoid disastrous weeks. We’ve selected potential Week 6 fantasy busts at each position, such as Devontae Booker and Kadarius Toney, who are popular names in waivers but carry risks in their matchups. At the very least, our list should help you know who to be wary of when making start-sit-down decisions.

As always, even perennial stars can blow up in favorable matchups, like AJ Brown in Week 5, but we know players like him are “must-have beginners.” We will just name the guys in the start or sit bubble. As mentioned above, you can’t always avoid the players on this list. Sometimes, you don’t have the depth to reasonably evaluate these guys (or you may just totally disagree with our evaluations).

WEEK 6 FANTASY: Sleepers | Get started, feel them

After a strong week 4, we had a .500 batting average in week 5. We were right on Miles Sanders, Brandin Cooks, Odell Beckham Jr., Derek Carr, Taylor Heinicke and Jared Cook. Touchdowns rescued two of our picks, Tyler Higbee and James Conner. Now where did we look dumb? Kyle Pitts had the game of his life, Courtland Sutton had over 100 yards and a touchdown, and Trevor Lawrence was one of the top 10 quarterbacks. And the worst bad beat of all? Buffalo was the number one fantasy defense, against Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City.

Overall, it was a weird and unpredictable week, but hey, that’s fantasy football. As always, we will not choose total softballs; rather, we will focus on the types that at least deserve some consideration to start this week.

Fantastic busts of week 6: runners

Chris Carson / Alex Collins, Seahawks @ Steelers (Jackson Sparks). Whatever the statistics of the guys from this Sunday night football game, we advise you to sit down. Sometimes it is difficult to seat a broker with guaranteed touches due to the scarcity of the position, but see if you can find an alternative option. The Pittsburgh defense has shown some cracks in the passing game, but has still been a top-five unit against fantasy RBs. This showdown between the offensive line and the front seven will be a huge mismatch, and the Steelers will not respect Geno Smith as a passer, which means more loaded boxes for Collins or Carson.

Josh Jacobs, Raiders at Broncos (Vinnie Iyer). This backfield has been terrible. Look for the Raiders to focus more on passing to poor results this week.

Devontae Booker, Giants vs. Rams (Matt Lutovsky). Booker’s fantasy day looked better than last week due to two short TDs. Without them, he had just 58 total yards on 19 touches. It’s hard to start a TD-dependent RB, but with that kind of volume, Booker has a certain appeal. The Rams have had their ups and downs against running backs, but they are still slightly above average. If you start Booker, don’t expect big points.

Fantasy Football busts from week 6: quarterbacks

Ryan Tannehill, Titans vs. Bills (Sparks). Tannehill has been disappointing this year, and it’s hard to think he will turn things around against possibly the best defense in the league. Buffalo is the number one defense against fantasy quarterbacks and limited Patrick Mahomes and Chiefs to just 20 points. With AJ Brown (hamstring) and Julio Jones (hamstring) battered, it’s hard to see a path to fantasy success here.

Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers vs. Seahawks (Iyer). Pittsburgh won’t face much resistance here with the defense doing a number on Seattle’s battered offense, so it will mostly be dealing with Najee Harris in a pie showdown.

Derek Carr, Raiders @ Broncos (Lutovsky). Carr’s strong start has come to an abrupt halt in the past two weeks as he averaged just 201 passing yards and one TD. The Broncos are allowing the second fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks, and given the turmoil in Las Vegas, you just don’t know what to expect. Carr is a very risky play.

Fantasy Football busts from week 6: wide receivers

Chase Claypool, Steelers vs. Seahawks (Sparks). We understand Claypool is coming off two solid games and JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) is out, but even against a bad secondary, it’s hard to trust anyone on the Steelers offense except Diontae Johnson and Najee Harris. It feels like a game where the Steelers could have a chance to succeed on the field. After all, Big Ben’s throwing arm could rest.

Kadarius Toney, Giants vs. Rams (Iyer). Toney! Toney. Toney? Will starting him feel good in this showdown against Jalen Ramsey? No, he will not. The award for most disappointing performance on a big stage after the love of resignation cable goes to …

Tyler Lockett, Seahawks at Steelers (Lutovsky). Lockett is hard to sit down, especially in a statistically favorable matchup like this one, but with Geno Smith at the center, he’s just as hard to trust. The Steelers pass defense should be better than it is, and this feels like a place where a big-play specialist like Lockett could be held down.

Fantasy Football busts from week 6: tight ends

David Njoku, Browns vs. Cardinals (Sparks). Don’t be fooled by Njoku’s monstrous 7-149-1 performance: Pass receivers in the Browns offense cannot be trusted week after week. Additionally, Arizona is the number one defense against tight ends in fantasy, and while they haven’t faced any of the best players in the league at the position, it’s worth noting that they defeated Tyler Higbee and Tyler Conklin on capable offenses.

Dalton Schultz, cowboys at Patriots (Iyer). Put the sergeant on the bench as the Patriots will do a good job keeping an eye on him.

Robert Tonyan, Packers @ Bears (Lutovsky). By now, you should know that Tonyan is TD-or-bust, so any week could be good and any week could be bad. There’s really no rhyme or reason for that, but facing a Bears defense that is allowing the TEs the seventh fewest fantasy points doesn’t help.

Fantastic busts from week 6: defenses

New England Patriots vs. Cowboys (Sparks). The Cowboys have allowed the second fewest points to fantasy defenses, and while the Patriots are among the league’s best defensive units, elite quarterbacks and offenses generally win in this offensive-friendly league. While Dallas is filming, no defense should be started against them.

Chicago Bears vs. Packers (Iyer). They’ve been playing well and they’re at home, and while the Packers can give up sacks and Aaron Rodgers hasn’t been perfect, you can’t go back there.

Arizona Cardinals at Browns (Lutovsky). The Cardinals have been one of the best fantasy D / STs this year, but it has been difficult to produce against Cleveland. The Browns are allowing the fifth fewest fantasy points to defenses thanks to their strong attack, so this feels like a game where the Cards show their low ground.
