Luke’s Wk 6 Fantasy Football Favorites
Week six in the Fantasy football world brings a rookie quarterback to the starting lineup while sending a veteran to the bench. See Luke's QB favorites and more thoughts for your lineup.
Week six also has Adrian Peterson on a new team thanks to the Saints and Cardinals trade, and the rise of one of his former backups. Which one should you play?
Luke's Favorites To Start
Deshaun Watson, Texans QB - Watson's 12 total TD's are impressive, as are his offensive weapons. This week he's facing a Browns D that is giving up almost 20 points per game to QB's.
Alvin Kamara, Saints RB - With Peterson now in the desert, Kamara gets a lot more touches and is pretty effective catching the ball too. He's sure to be good in PPR leagues this week against a Lions D that is letting up at least 6 catches per week to RB's.
Cameron Brate, Buccaneers TE - Brate has scored a TD in his last 3 games and is becoming a security blanket for Jameis Winston. The Cardinals have also been letting up huge points to the TE position.
Adam Thielen, Vikings WR - Although he didn't have a big week 5, Thielen is playing a Packers D that is giving up 40 PPR points per game to WR's who are at home. 40!
Luke's Favorites To sit
Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers QB - My biggest whiff of last week. Big Ben just hasn't been himself so much so that even he questioned if he's 'still got it' after throwing 5 picks against the Jaguars in week 5. Now he's on the road against arguably the best team in the NFL. Sit Ben against the Chiefs.
Sammy Watkins, Rams WR - Watkins is facing the Jaguars D that decimated Roethlisberger and the Steelers in week 5. On top of that he just hasn't found his niche in the Rams offense.
Adrian Peterson, Cardinals RB - AP has only been in Arizona for a few days, so don't expect much this week. He's also only averaged 2.1 yards per carry since last season.
Martellus Bennett, Packers TE - Bennett has had next to no production for the Pack this season, and that doesn't look to be changing anytime soon. There are better options.
Good luck in week 6, and remember to submit your week 7 questions to Luke@BigFrog104.com.
