Week 6 of NFL Fantasy Football is here! After last week and all the adjustments because of canceled games it looks like the NFL will play their full slate of games.
Last week wasn’t my finest week in Stick’s Picks. Amari Cooper fell back to earth, mostly to do with Dak’s injury. Ebron went Ebron, fumbling on 2 catches which would have given him productive day. But turns out to be just 5 catches for 43 yards. Not awful picks, but lets make sure NFL Week 6 Fantasy Football picks are on point! Lets go!
Gardner Minshew – This is the 2nd time I’ve put Minshew down as a must start. This time he is facing the Detroit Lions who are ranked 26th in the NFL in Defense. The Lions do not pressure the QB at all, which should help Minshew have time to pick a part our D. Aside form playing the Lions Defense, Minshew has shown to be a consistent 300 yrds, 2 TD guy all season long. I don’t see him doing any less that that this week.
D’Andre Swift – Yes, that D’Andre Swift. I really liked what I saw out of him before the bye week. He was running great routes out of the backfield and showed some speed when in open space. Adrien Peterson has been nursing an injury all week. This is the perfect time for Swift to put his stamp on his rookie year. Forget the dropped pass in Game 1. Lets have a big Fantasy Football day on Sunday!
Golden Tate – We haven’t heard much from Golden Tate this season. He started off injured but has now worked his way back into the Giants rotation. He’s going up against a Washington Defense that has been pretty good this season. Washington can pressure the QB which will lead to Danny Dimes dropping it off to his trusty WR Golden Tate.
Austin Hooper – Hopper has come on lately as a good target for Baker Mayfield. 2, 4, 4, 7, 10 is how his targets have progressed this year. I expect it to continue this week. If Hooper can see 10 targets again he will find the end zone. Look for Hooper to continue his consistent Fantasy Football TE production this week vs Pitt.
