Week 6






Taylor Heinicke vs. Chiefs ($5,800)

The Washington Football Team are +5.5 Home dogs week six against a Chiefs team that just got dismantled by Josh Allen and The Buffalo Bills. Taylor Heinicke is projecting as a top-5 QB on the main slate, and he’ll get a secondary that has no answers. The Chiefs are allowing 300 Passing Yards per game so far on the season and this game total is the highest on the slate (55.5). Fire up Heinicke in all formats and stack him with Terry McLaurin and/or Ricky Seals-Jones. This trio could be the stack of the week and it’s beyond affordable.



Carson Wentz vs. Texans ($5,400)

Carson Wentz will get the lowly Houston Texans Week 6 at home after throwing for 400 yards in a road loss to the Ravens. It was refreshing to see that upside out of Wentz again. His 11.5 yards per attempt was 2nd highest on the week and his incompletions were all on short throws. He’ll get a Texans pass defense this week that ranks 17th. Pairing Wentz with Michael Pittman ($5,500) makes plenty of sense as their rapport continues to grow by the week.




Running Backs



Darrel Williams @ Football Team ($4,900)

Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) out, will be replaced with Darrel Williams week 6 as the Chiefs look to take their frustrations out on The Football Team. Williams will get a defensive front that is 10th in allowing fantasy points to running backs. He has seven receptions over the last three weeks. While, I wish his price tag wasn’t nearing $5,000, there is a level of difficulty with RB value on the slate.



Devontae Booker vs. Rams ($5,600)

Devontae Booker’s stay in Denver consisted of merely a spotty, pass catching role, but he has been able to display more of a volume role with the ongoing absences of Saquon Barkley. Booker had 19 touches week five, generating 21 DraftKings points. He’ll be in a negative game script Sunday as the Giants face themselves home underdogs. He’ll pay off his tag if the game script goes accordingly, and is depended on in the passing game.




Michael Pittman vs. Texans ($5,500)

I mentioned how good Carson Wentz has been playing recently and should continue to roll week six. Michael Pittman has been the main recipient catching 26-of-39 targets over the past four games. Pittman played on 62% of the Colts offensive snaps week five. I love this pair in tournament, with using Brandin Cooks as the run-back.




Amon-Ra St. brown vs. Bengals ($4,200)

The absence of Tyrell Williams and the departure of Marvin Jones has created opportunity and usage for a new and raw cast of Lions past catchers not named T.J. Hockenson. Amon -Ra St. Brown has caught 13-of-16 passes over the last two weeks and is bonding with Jared Goff from the slot. Over the last two games, St. Brown has a 21.9 percent target share from Goff. I expect his snap rate to stay at 70+ % and with our need to spend in other areas, St. Brown feels safe as a one-off.




Tight Ends



Ricky Seals-Jones vs. Chiefs ($3,000)

For perspective, Ricky Seals-Jones is projecting as a top four Fantasy Tight End week 6, only under Travis Kelce, Darren Waller, and Mark Andrews, respectively. At his price and matchup we are almost obligated to use him with his game environment against the Chiefs at home. Seals-Jones played 82-of-83 of Washington’s offensive snaps week five and will likely carry that into Sunday. He is a freakishly talented tight end that Taylor Heinicke can use as a safety blanket. I’ll be using him everywhere.



Hunter Henry vs. Cowboys ($3,900)

It looks like Mac Jones has found comfort leaning on Hunter Henry through five weeks. Henry has caught 10-of-13 targets over the past two weeks with back to back touchdowns. He’s played at-least 63% of the snaps in every game so far this season and has logged 5+ targets in his last three games. He’ll be a low owned pivot from the Chalky Ricky Seals-Jones.




Defense/Special Teams



Panthers vs. Vikings ($2,900)

Lions vs. Bengals ($2,100)
