Top Fantasy Streamers for Week 6

Top Fantasy Streamers for Week 6

by October 13, 2020 2 comments

Week 5 is almost in the books and hopefully, your teams were able to stave off the injury bug. Whether you need an injury replacement or want an upgrade over your current starter, here is a list of streamers with favorable matchups in Week 6. Let’s dive in.

The following players are owned in less than 50 percent of Yahoo Leagues.

Justin Herbert, QB, Los Angeles Chargers

Herbert has been dominating since taking over as the starting quarterback in Los Angeles. Over the first four games of his career, Herbert’s thrown for 1,195 yards (298.8 yards per game) along with nine touchdowns. With Dak Prescott set to miss the rest of the season after suffering a gruesome ankle injury, Herbert is a fantastic pickup for the rest of the season. While he has a bye this week, Hebert faces the Jacksonville Jaguars, Las Vegas Raiders, and Miami Dolphins in three of his next four contests. Herbert should be added now and viewed as a QB1 for the foreseeable future.

Andy Dalton, QB, Dallas Cowboys

Dalton came in for an injured Prescott last Sunday and went 9-11 for 111 yards while leading the Cowboys to a victory against the New York Giants. The Cowboys boast one of the most talented and explosive offenses in the league, which automatically gives Dalton a high-floor. With the Cowboys defense allowing a league-worst 36 points per game, he should find himself in multiple shootouts. He squares off against Kyler Murray and the Cardinals who have been averaging 25.6 points per game. Expect this to be a high-scoring affair, making Dalton a plug-and-play QB1 this week.

Kirk Cousins, QB, Minnesota Vikings

Ever since Week 3’s debacle against the Indianapolis Colts, Cousins has been a top-20 fantasy quarterback averaging 253.3 passing yards and two touchdowns over the past three games. Cousins faces an Atlanta Falcons defense giving up 32.2 points per game (second-worst in the NFL). With the Vikings falling lower and lower in the standings at 1-3, expect the Vikings to ask a lot more of Cousins to win ball games.

Jimmy Graham, TE, Chicago Bears

Graham is coming off a solid Week 5 where he caught 3-5 targets for 33 yards and a touchdown. He could have had an even bigger day had he not dropped a potential 20-yard score from Nick Foles. Graham’s been averaging 6.6 targets ever since Foles took over as the starting quarterback (three games) and has a decent matchup in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers.

Trey Burton, TE, Indianapolis Colts

Since returning from a calf injury in Week 4, Burton has been overtaking Mo Alie-Cox and Jack Doyle on the Colts’ tight end depth chart. He has 11 total targets over the past two weeks versus just three targets each for both Cox and Doyle. With Burton running more than double the pass routes than teammate Alie-Cox (38-18) since returning from injury, it’s safe to say Burton is the preferred tight end in Indianapolis. He’s a high-floor TE2 streaming option against the Cincinnati Bengals at home this week.

Gerald Everett, TE, Los Angeles Rams

Everett led the Rams in receiving yards this past week with 91 yards on four catches. He out-targeted teammate Tyler Higbee 4-2. With Higbee averaging just 2.6 targets over the past three weeks, it’s anyone’s guess which tight end is the preferred option is Los Angeles. Everett is available in 99 percent of Yahoo Leagues and is worth taking a shot on in deep leagues where the tight end pool is barren.

New York Giants, DST

The Giants come into Week 6 tied for 11th for most fantasy points scored by a defense. They host a Washington team giving up the sixth-most fantasy points to defenses this season. With Kyle Allen expecting to make another start for Washington, the Giants D/ST is a top-5 play this week.

Tennessee Titans, DST

Tennessee makes for a solid floor play this week hosting a Houston Texans team giving up the fifth-most fantasy points to defenses. The Texans have allowed their opponents to average 3.4 sacks and at least one turnover per game. The Titans are a top-10 play this week.

Younghoe Koo, K, Atlanta Falcons

Koo returned from a groin injury in Week 5 and went 3-3, including a 54-yard field goal. Matt Ryan has been moving the ball well enough to put Koo in multiple scoring chances this season. Koo is a top-10 fantasy option this week going up against a Minnesota team that has given up the most fantasy points to kickers this season.
