The best and the worst of fantasy football in NFL Week 6.
Joe Burrow, QB, CIN
300 passing yards, 3 passing TDs, 25 rushing yards, 1 TD, 32.5 points.
Used his legs and a solid short passing game to score a win in New Orleans and for fantasy managers.
Rhamondre Stevenson, RB, NE
76 rushing yards, 15 receiving yards, 2 TDs, 23.1 points.
With Damien Harris sidelined, the sophomore took his opportunity and ran with it.
Deon Jackson, RB, IND
42 rushing yards, 79 receiving yards, 23.1 points.
Looked excellent before leaving with a hamstring injury, picking up 10 catches along the way.
Ja’Marr Chase, WR, CIN
132 receiving yards, 2 TDs, 28.7 points.
The former LSU star had a breakout game in New Orleans, catching seven of his ten targets.
Stefon Diggs, WR, BUF
148 receiving yards, 1 TD, 25.8 points.
The Chiefs had no answer for the Bills star, who made 10 catches in the win on 13 targets.
Mike Gesicki, TE, MIA
69 receiving yards, 2 TDs, 21.9 points.
Coming into the game with just nine receptions, Gesicki had six against the Vikings.
New York Jets DEF
10 points allowed, 4 sacks, 1 fumble recovered, 2 blocked kicks, 1 TD, 20 points.
Also nearly had a pick six early in the game that was overturned on review.
Wil Lutz, K, NO
4 FGs, 133 FG yards, 2 PATs, 15.3 points.
Aaron Rodgers, QB, GB
246 passing yards, 1 passing TD, 1 fumble lost, 11.8 points.
With another weak outing, Rodgers shouldn’t be relied upon as a QB1 in fantasy any more.
Kareem Hunt, RB, CLE
12 rushing yards, 1.2 points.
Had his worst outing of the season with just four carries and he failed to catch his only target.
Jeff Wilson Jr., RB, SF
25 rushing yards, 1 fumble lost, 0.5 points.
The Niners fell behind early and struggled to get anything going on the ground.
J.K. Dobbins, RB, BAL
15 rushing yards, 1.5 points.
Had his knee tighten up on him, which limited the Ravens RB to just seven carries this week.
D.J. Moore, WR, CAR
7 receiving yards, 2.2 points.
Moore was the only Panthers WR with a catch in the game against the Rams.
Tyler Lockett, WR, SEA
17 receiving yards, 2.7 points.
After four straight weeks with double-digit points, Lockett (and the rest of the Seahawks WRs) were held in check.
Devin Duvernay, WR, BAL
14 receiving yards, 2.1 points.
Only connected on one of his five targets in the Ravens’ upset loss.
Taysom Hill, TE/QB, NO
16 passing yards, 39 rushing yards, 4.5 points.
After all that hype, Hill had another tepid performance with the defence keying on him.
I HOPE YOU STARTED
Matt Ryan’s second start against the Jags as a Colt was a stark contrast to his first time out. The Colts QB threw for a season-high 389 yards and tossed three TDs and zero INTs compared to zero TDs and three INTs back in Week 2. That was good for 27.1 points this week, another season high.
-The New England Patriots may have found themselves a nice weapon in Tyquan Thornton. The rookie WR scored two TDs (one rushing, one receiving) with 53 total yards. Thornton flashed his potential in pre-season and could be in for a bigger role.
