Week 6 Sleepers QB’s:
1. Matt “Matty Ice” Ryan: Falcons get to face Arizona that won their first game of the season. They are still having trouble defending the pass. They just claimed Trevor Williams for the Chargers. But Williams is hurt at the moment. His status for week 6 it is not clear if he will play or not. Also, pass rusher Zach Allen is dealing with a neck injury that left him out of week 5. With the Cardinals having problems all over the field, Matty Ice should have another big game. His lowest scoring game came against the Titans. Only scoring 15 points. He had a fumble and no touchdowns and was still able to put up 15 points. Matty a must.
2. Kyler Murray: Murray has thrown for more INTs (5) than TDs (4) is his young career but can have back-to-back 20+ point games. Soft opponents last and this week with the Bengals and Falcons. Falcons allow the second-most points in the league with 30.4 per game. With Christian Kirk returning from injury and Larry Fitzgerald averaging 8.8 targets per game, he can almost guarantee 50-100 yards per game form him alone. Murray is also a threat on the ground, so he is a big sleeper on the low low.
3. Jameis Winston: Winston has been staying relative in the QB rankings, floating in the top 10 5 weeks in. Eleven TDs and only 5 INTs this season, Winston is looking for a statement hoping to beat the Division Rival Carolina Panthers again, this time at London. At Carolina, Winston is looking to bounce back from a 13.22 point, via Sleeper App, outing and looking for a 30+ point game like he did in LA!
4. Kyle Allen: Since getting the nod week 3, after Cam Newton’s injury, Kyle Allen has taken over the seen in Carolina. With a lot of help from the best RB in the NFL CMC. Allen is 60/90 for 674 yards and 5 TDs with 0.0 INTs. With a security blanky of McCaffrey, anyone will be successful! My bets are on Kyle Allen! The Bucs have the 31st ranked pass D allowing 323.6 passing yards per game and 29.6 points per game which is ranked 29th in the league.
5. Phillip Rivers: Old Man Rivers had his first bad game this season with only throwing for 211 yards 0 TDs and 2 INTs against a tough Denver Broncos defense. Chargers' injury list is as long as Santa Clause's naughty list, but with Ekeler in the backfield, you can’t go wrong. Ekeler is the team's second-leading receiver behind Keenan Allen and will continue to put up big numbers.
Week 6 Sleepers RB’s:
1. Matt Breida: The Rams seem to be better on defense than offense this year, but they are susceptible to getting tired and worn out as a game progresses. The Niners are the best team that exposes fatigue and Breida has the potential to have another big game.
2. Reggie Bonnafon: Saw a quick burst of points when he came in to relieve a banged-up Christian McCaffrey. He is a super deep sleeper for those that are truly desperate. CMC is healthy and will start against the Buccaneers, but Bonnafon is a dark horse if the Panthers can put the game away early and Bonnafon comes to clean things up.
3. Kenyon Drake: Drake will probably be the most talented player on the field during the tank Bowl which makes him the perfect sleeper candidate. Low-risk high reward start.
4. Phillip Lindsay: Lindsay balled out against the Los Angeles Chargers with 114 yards and 1 TD averaging 7.6 yards per carrying. The Titans are allowing at least 100 yards per game and Lindsay is capable of that plus a breakaway TD at any time. He can also see at least 5 targets that can rack up 50+ yards.
5. Malcolm Brown: With Todd Gurley’s injury status up in the air Malcolm Brown is a name you should have in your mind when it comes to decision time. The Rams canceled practice Thursday due to 55+ MPH winds, and Gurley’s status is unknown. Brown can play as a relive role or even a starter on Sunday night matchup vs the 49ers.
Week 6 Sleepers WR’s:
1. Byron Pringle: Mr. Pringle had a total of 20 yards this season receiving before his monstrous 6 receptions 103 yards and 1 TD against Indy. He is listed as the 5th-6th wideout on the team but seen 8 targets on a stacked Chiefs offense. Pringle has earned more opportunities and can see yet another big game against a Texans D.
2. Mohamed Sanu: The Falcons are off the desperate need of a bounce back game! Getting blown out of the water by the Texans the Falcons will for sure air it out against a Cards D that allows 408 total yards, which is 29th in the league. It’s going to be a shootout and Sanu is bound to catch one or two.
3. Dede Westbrook: I have made a quote “Dede Westbrook will have more yards than AB by the end of the season!” Technically I’m right and he will continue to be Minshew’s #2 target, behind D.J Clark. Dede only has 1 TD this season but the Saints are bond to try to stop Clark at all cost which leaves Dede open for a big game.
4. D.K Metcalf: Donkey Kong Metcalf production has slowed since week 1 but managed to get a TD against the LA Rams. That TD was a beauty and was pretty much untouched a looked amazing and can see him coming up with more TD in the near future. Against the Browns D and the way Russell has been playing like an MVP, yeah I would label D.K as a sleeper.
5. Christian Kirk: Christian Kirk is coming off the injury list which means up-side, up-side and more up-side! Larry will take WR1 role as Kirk will slip in like a slippery otter! I can see at least 10 targets and 8 catches and up against a struggling Falcons D, Murray is going to be gunslinging his way to a career-high in yards.
