Fantasy Sleepers of Week 6: Darrel Williams, Tua Tagovailoa among those with favorable matchups

| Sport Top stories | World News


We are now five weeks into the regular season. A lot of sleepers have emerged throughout the season, but there are still potential headlines off the radar. Whether these players are on your roster or on the waiver, they have a sneaky edge to give you a lead in Week 6. Players like Darrel Williams and Tua Tagovailoa are the type of players to start, sit them down, bubble this week (assuming Tua exits IR), and we like their opportunities enough to put them on our Week 6 fantasy sleeper list.

It’s also worth noting that any of our picks could bust this week. We are taking a chance here, as we don’t want to say that no one is too obvious. A list of easy options would do no one any good. You’re not going to start with the guys below with proven, consistent producers, but you’re probably not looking for fantasy sleepers if your lineup is established. However, even if that’s the case, our list of sleepers can help you find value in DFS, as the prices of these players should be affordable.

FANTASY OF THE WEEK 6: Busts | Get started, feel them

Last week, Tony Pollard, Damien Williams, Jamies Winston, Emmanuel Sanders, Dawson Knox and the Titans defense were wins in our column all season. We went bold with rookies Zach Wilson and Trey Lance. While Lance wasn’t a home run, his 89 rushing yards saved a disastrous day. Kenny Gainwell, Tyler Conklin, and Zach Ertz flopped, but spoiler alert, we’re promoting Gainwell again this week.

As always, we won’t bore anyone with obvious beginners, but we will help you identify players with improved prospects in Week 6. As with Gainwell, we will not banish a player for the entire season after a week-long disappointment. Sleepers are fluid week to week, and we will continue to rely on pairings and expected usage.

Week 6 Fantasy Sleepers: Runners

Kenneth Gainwell, Eagles vs. Buccaneers (Jackson Sparks). The Bucs defense has yielded the most catches to running backs (42), and we just saw Myles Gaskin celebrate in the air against them. He caught all 10 of his goals for 74 yards and two touchdowns. This is a blueprint for offensive success against Tampa, and Gainwell has already proven himself a capable weapon in the passing game.

Latavius ​​Murray, Ravens vs. Chargers (Vinnie Iyer). The Ravens will once again run the ball at a high pace against a weak forward of seven, and Murray will have a good day and a touchdown.

Darrel Williams, Washington Chiefs (Matt Lutovsky). Williams hopes to lead with Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) out, and with Washington 10th in fantasy points allowed to running backs, Williams should succeed. That includes big games against Cordarrelle Patterson and Alvin Kamara on the air in the last two games. Williams isn’t quite as good a pass receiver as those two, but he can still log 100 total yards and have a good shot to score.

Week 6 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Quarterbacks

Tua Tagovailoa, Dolphins vs. Jaguars. Tagovailoa certainly carries a risk if he returns to his first action after missing three games with a rib injury, but come on, it’s the Jags. Miami doesn’t have the running game to just land and hit. You could do a lot worse than Mike Gesicki, Jaylen Waddle and DeVante Parker (if they’re healthy) as pass receivers, and they’re talented enough to take advantage of a porous Jags secondary that has yielded 19 or more fantasy points to four of them. five quarterbacks he faces. The only exception was Ryan Tannehill, who attempted just 22 passes in a game without Julio Jones (hamstring) and with AJ Brown on a quick count. Unless Miami finds a Derrick Henry on their depth chart, they should air this game.

Teddy Bridgewater, Broncos vs Raiders (Iyer). He’s healthy and back putting his usual high-floor numbers on offense, and it happens again at home against a weakened passing defense.

Carson Wentz, Colts vs. Texans (Lutovsky). Wentz is averaging 264.4 passing yards per game, and while he only has seven TDs, he’s clearly doing better than many expected. Against Houston, which has given up multiple quarterback touchdowns each week this season, Wentz could produce QB1-level stats.

Week 6 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Wide Receivers

Michael Pittman Jr., Colts vs. Texans (Sparks). Pittman is quietly enjoying a spectacular season as he is WR24 in the PPR leagues for five weeks. Since Week 1, he has attracted at least seven targets in all four games and is averaging 14.5 fantasy points per game. We know Houston lacks talent at all levels of its defense, and Pittman should continue his hot streak.

Allen Robinson II, Bears vs. Packers (Iyer). This is where we meet his horrible start to the season. You need a bit of encouragement to stick with it, so count on a decent game through volume without Jaire Alexander (shoulder).

Cole Beasley, Bills @ Titans (Lutovsky). Most of the trends with Beasley are bad, as he played 39 percent of plays, the season low, last week, and has only four total goals in the last two games combined. As good as last week’s matchup was, this week is even better, as Tennessee has allowed the most fantasy points to the WRs this year. Dawson Knox won’t keep scoring every week and Beasley will get back on track at some point. Against a strong TE defense, as Tennessee has been this year, this could be the week their hot / cold streaks end.

Week 6 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Tight Endings

Ricky Seals-Jones, Washington vs. Chiefs (Sparks). In Washington’s first game without Logan Thomas (hamstring), Seal-Jones caught five of eight goals for 41 yards. While his point total was less than stellar, he finished as a TE in the top 14 in the PPR leagues. That game was against a good defense, while this week it will get the terrible defense of the Chiefs, who have allowed the fifth most fantasy points to tight ends.

Jared Cook, Chargers @ Ravens (Iyer). Justin Herbert looks for big plays all the time, but he can’t ignore Baltimore’s ineptitude at covering tight end.

Hunter Henry, Patriots vs. Cowboys (Lutovsky). Henry has scored in each of the last two weeks, but more importantly, his goals are increasing. Last week, he saw eight looks, the season high, and what appears to be a happy game for New England, he got to see even more in Week 6.

Week 6 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Defense

Minnesota Vikings @ Carolina Panthers (Sparks). We are confident that Sam Darnold will play as the Sam Darnold we remember from New York again this week. Minnesota has given up just 16.5 points per game in its last two games, so perhaps Mike Zimmer is trading his defensive unit. We like that the Vikings force some turnovers.

Miami Dolphins vs. Jaguars (Iyer). They have been horrible despite all their playmakers, but here they capitalize on a huge London mistake by Trevor Lawrence.

Green Bay Packers at Bears (Lutovsky). Since a disastrous Week 1, the Packers have had multiple takeaways in each game averaging 2.5 sacks per contest. The Bears have been better since Justin Fields’ disastrous starting debut in Cleveland, but those performances came against the Lions and Raiders. The Packers will be a tougher test for the rookie, and they should rack up enough fantasy points to be a starting D / ST this week.
