NFL Fantasy Football Week Six Sleepers

NFL Fantasy Football Week Six Sleepers

NFL FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK SIX SLEEPERS – A player gets injured, or someone breaks out and earns more opportunities. These players can make or break your fantasy season. No one can predict the future, so drafting a perfect team is out of the question.

Depth never hurts, so it is best to evaluate your roster weekly. This article is a great place to look and will feature the best waiver wire additions each week. (Rostered Percentages from ESPN.)


Joshua Dobbs – 35.0% Rostered

Few quarterbacks are worth picking up or starting, so I will only mention Dobbs.

Baker Mayfield and Jimmy Garoppolo have good matchups and could be quality sleeper starts.

I listed Dobbs last week, and he had a mediocre start against the Bengals. He takes on the Rams this week, which is a solid matchup.

James Conner also got hurt and could miss some time with a knee injury. Dobbs should get more designed runs and may have more chances to throw the ball without Conner moving forward.

The Rams allowed Jalen Hurts to throw for 303 yards, one TD, and one interception, and Dobbs could have another solid start.

Running Back

Roschon Johnson – 37.0% Rostered

Johnson suffered a concussion in Thursday’s victory over the Commanders but could be the starter if he clears protocol. He will have a few more days since they played Thursday, which could allow him enough time to recover.

Khalil Herbert injured his ankle and should miss several weeks. Even if Johnson cannot play this week, he should be in line to become the starter during Herbert’s extended absence.

Emari Demercado – 0.4% Rostered

James Conner will likely miss some time due to his knee injury.

Demercado replaced him and ran for 45 yards and a TD. Keontay Ingram and Tony Jones Jr. are the other backs on the roster, and Demercado could be the starter without Conner. He is a sleeper pick-up and could save you some FAAB. He is also going to have low ownership in daily fantasy.

Jeff Wilson Jr. – 29.7% Rostered

I am adding a third back this week, but I will keep it brief since I mentioned him last week. He is going to be activated off injured reserve and will start practicing.

De’Von Achane injured his knee and should miss multiple weeks. Raheem Mostert and Wilson could share touches moving forward in this explosive offense.

Wide Receiver

Josh Downs – 10.9% Rostered

Downs is earning a larger share in the Colts’ offense, and it does not matter which quarterback is at the helm. He led the team with 97 receiving yards and got targeted six times from the slot.

He should have a nice matchup this week against the Jaguars, who are weak against slot receivers and allow 271.6 passing yards per week.

Rashee Rice – 23.3% Rostered

Rice has received at least five targets in all but one game this season. He is second on the team in targets behind Travis Kelce.

Patrick Mahomes and Rice seem to have some solid chemistry, which means Rice could move into an increased role in the future. He is a good stash and a sleeper who plays in daily fantasy. The Chiefs will play Denver on Thursday night, and the Chiefs should have a field day against this defense.

Tight End

Logan Thomas – 8.1% Rostered

I mentioned Logan Thomas last week, and he had a monster game. He recorded nine catches for 77 yards and a TD against the Bears.

Hopefully, you picked him up last week, but he is still available in many leagues. It may cost you a little more FAAB this week. He will play the Falcons this week and has a nice stretch of matchups ahead of him.

Tyler Conklin– 17.9% Rostered

Tyler Conklin has received at least five targets in every game this season except week one. Zach Wilson has targeted him 23 times this season, which ranks second on the team behind Garrett Wilson.

Conklin can still be a productive tight end if Wilson has a bad game, which makes him worth having on your roster. He will play the Eagles this week, who have allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to tight ends this season.
