Patrick Mahomes

Patrick Mahomes put up a huge fantasy football week in week 5 when he faced the Las Vegas Raiders and threw for 340 yard 2 TDs with 21 yards rushing and another TD on the ground. Mahomes is an absolute stud and it really helped that the Raiders kept up and even exceeded the Chiefs offense forcing Mahomes to keep up. Mahomes will look to keep rolling against another potent offense in the Buffalo Bills for week 6. The Bills are allowing the 9th most fantasy football points to opposing QBs. The Bills have a strong offense and will keep up with the Chiefs forcing Mahomes to throw and throw often he will have a huge week in week 6. Fantasy Projection: 271 yards 1.75 TDs passing 29 yards 0.2 TDs rushing

Ben Roethlisberger

Ben Roethlisberger has been an extremely steady QB for fantasy pruposes throwing for an average of 2.5 TDs per game. Big Ben faced the Eagles in week 5 and had another 3 TD game targeting his new weapon Chase Claypool. Claypool is an addition to an already strong wide receiver core including Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster. An added asset like Claypool will only improve Roethlisberger’s fantasy future. Big Ben will take on the Cleveland Browns in week 6 who are allowing the 8th most fantasy points to opposing fantasy football QBs. This a a great matchup for Big Ben who will be a strong streaming options this week. Fantasy Projection: 295 yards 2 TDs passing

Derrick Henry

Derrick Henry will be one of the top options for your fantasy football team in week 6 especially when he matches up against the helpless Houston Texans run defense. Henry has not only had additional rest due to the COVID bye week, but is due for a big performance!. Houston is allowing the 7th most points to opposing RBs and I highly doubt that stops when Henry rolls into town. I expect Henry to put up a strong RB1 week in week 6. Fantasy Projection: 99 yards 0.9 TDs rushing 1 reception 15 yards 0.1 TDs receiving

James Robinson

James Robinson had a tough week 5 when he rushed for 48 yards and had 5 receptions for 22 additional yards. I think this game will end up being an outlier in a season full of RB1 performances for Robinson. In week 6 Robinson will face the Detroit Lions who are allowing the 4th most points to opposing fantasy football RBs this season. This is a great matchup for Robinson to get back on track and is a must start fantasy football option. Fantasy Projection: 83 yards 0.4 TDs rushing 2 receptions 22 yards 0.2 TDs receiving

Jamison Crowder

Jamison Crowder has been on fire this year even on the Jets where there are very few fantasy football options. In week 5 Crowder put up 8 receptions for 116 yards and 1 TD. In fact, Crowder has had over 100 yards in every game he has played and 1 TD in two out of three games. This is an impressive beginning to the season especially for a receiver that was not drafted in the top half of any fantasy football drafts. I expect Crowder will continue to be heavily utilized in the Jets offense and will put up top fantasy weeks in plus matchups. In week 6 Crowder will face the Miami Dolphins who are in the middle of the pack aganst opposing WRs and will not challenge Crowders volume. Fantasy Projection: 6 receptions 63 yards 0.4 TDs

Robby Anderson

Robby Anderson has finally showed the talent that we all knew was there when he was traded to the Carolina Panthers. Robby has been consistently producing week in and week out flashing signs that he could be one of the most under valued fantasy assets in the league. Anderson faced the the Falcons in week 5 and had 8 receptions for 112 yards. I expect Anderson will continue to flash in week 6 when he faces the Chicago Bears. The Bears are a very difficult matchup for opposing wide receivers, but Robby will continue to see high volume making him a low end WR2 in week 6. Fantasy Projection: 6 receptions 63 yards 0.3 TDs

Zach Ertz

What has happened to Zach Ertz he had another tough week in week 5 when he faced the Pittsburgh Steelers and only had 1 reception for 6 yards. This is not the first game where Ertz has disappointed this year. In fact, Ertz only has had 1 game of over 10 fantasy points in the past 5 weeks and 3 below 7 points. The Eagles offense appears to be in shambles and Ertz is being dragged down with it. Things will not get better in week 6 when the Baltimore Ravens face the Eagles. The Ravens may not have been the strongest defense specifically against tight ends, but their overall defense will cause the Eagles offense fits. I am not expecting a breakout game for Ertz in week 6. Fantasy Projection:4 receptions 55 yards 0.3 TDs
