Fantasy Football Week 6 Sleepers Who Could Lend a Hand
Here are a few fantasy football sleepers who might lend a helping hand to your Week 6 team. With so many players injured, under-performing or on a bye, you might find these players helpful in Week 6.
Jake Locker, Quarterback, Tennessee Titans
If he resumes play as x-rays have found to be negative on his thumb, he has a fabulous opportunity for huge game against Jacksonville, who allow the third most fantasy points and the most passing yards to opposing quarterbacks. If your QB is facing a scary defense, or is just scary, give Locker a try if he gets clearance to play in Week 6.
He’s got awesome weapons in Kendall Wright and Delanie Walker who have six touchdowns between the two of them.
Devin Hester, Wide Receiver, Atlanta Falcons
Hester is facing his old Chicago Bears’ team who are really not very brilliant in defending the pass. Allowing about 38 points average per game could see Hester’s legs running wild. With Roddy White hit or miss, Hester could pick up some extra targets and make his old team chase him down. Perhaps another return touchdown is on the agenda for Hester in Week 6?
John Brown, Wide Receiver, Arizona Cardinals
Brown is seeing an increase in targets and that has been with Cardinals’ backup quarterbacks. Palmer is close to playing and might suit up in Week 6, therefore, Brown could even see more than the seven targets he did last week. Defenses are smothering poor Larry Fitzgerald, so quarterbacks are looking elsewhere and that is in the direction of Brown.
LeGarrette Blount, Running Back, Pittsburgh Steelers
Blount faces the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. If you recall, the Browns allowed the Steelers running backs a total of 217 combined yards in Week 1. Blount scored that week also. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Blount stealing a couple of the goal line carries once again in Week 6.
Storm Johnson, Running Back, Jacksonville Jaguars
Let’s face the fact that Toby Gerhart is clearly not working out. He stinks. If he’s not injured, he’s just non-effective. My grandma can run faster than 2.6 yards per carry. Keep an eye out on Storm Johnson and Denard Robinson as the running back competition has been re-opened.
