Fantasy Football Starts for NFL Week 6, Target Calvin Ridley

Fantasy Football Starts for NFL Week 6, Target Calvin Ridley

Fantasy Football Week 6 is here, so here are some must-start players who have fantastic matchups this weekend.


Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings versus Atlanta Falcons

If you’re on the fence about starting Cousins in Week 6, get him in your lineup. It will be like Cousins taking candy from a baby, playing a defense that is allowing a criminal 345.6 passing yards and three passing touchdowns on average per clash.

Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions @ Jacksonville Jaguars

Stafford should be rested and ready to rack up more than his fair share of fantasy points in Week 6. Jacksonville has yielded the third-most overall yards on offense per game, as well as 11 passing touchdowns on the season.

Running Backs:

Ronald Jones, Tampa Bay Buccaneers versus Green Bay Packers

RoJo seems to be the hot hand in Tampa Bay and he’s got a wonderful chance to keep the heat going against Green Bay. Through four games, the Packers have given away the second-most RB fantasy points.

Myles Gaskin, Miami Dolphins versus New York Jets

Fire up Gaskin in Week 6 and watch the fantasy points roll in. The Dolphins should have plenty of opportunity to get ahead and run the ball tons in this game script. Gaskin should thrive against a defense giving up 129 rushing yards per game on average.

Wide Receivers:

Calvin Ridley, Atlanta Falcons @ Minnesota Vikings

Ridely should be back on course for another grand fantasy performance in Week 6. The Vikings have ceded the sixth-most fantasy points this season which includes giving up nine WR touchdowns in five games.

Marquise Brown, Baltimore Ravens @ Philadelphia Eagles

Brown has a sweet opportunity to keep the fantasy spoils coming in, facing the Eagles. Philadelphia last gave up 173 WR yards and three WR touchdowns to Pittsburgh. Now that Brown seems to finally have gotten in better sync with QB Lamar Jackson, he should be good to go.

Tight End:

Eric Ebron, Pittsburgh Steelers versus Cleveland Browns

If you’re in a pinch at TE, Ebron has a nice matchup on Sunday. He is at home against the Browns that have allowed the sixth-most TE fantasy points this season. This would include them giving up an average of 61.6 yards per game on average.
