Fantasy Overview - Week 6

Get yourself caught up on what's going on in the league as we enter Week 6 of the NFL season. Here's my take on the fantasy landscape around the league and how you can benefit. 

As we enter Week 6 of the 2020 season, I want to share some tips, advice, and thoughts on various players, teams, and situations. With all of the outlets and resources available now, it is becoming more difficult to separate yourself from the rest of the pack when it comes to knowledge and strategy. To gain that extra edge, you have to make proactive moves that cash in, plan ahead, know your players' schedules, read helpful columns, and above all, execute the game plan for success. In no particular order, here are a few items that can help you gain that edge.

1. Be aware of players returning from injury, as well as players benefiting from an injury

  • Michael Thomas, NO - Thomas is a big one here, but he is not going to be on the waiver wire. Thomas could've returned for Week 5 against the Chargers, but a team-sanctioned disciplinary action resulted in him not playing. The Saints have their bye next week and Thomas should be good to go for Week 7.

  • Andy Dalton, DAL - We know the Cowboys offense is talented and we also know Andy Dalton may be the best, most experienced backup quarterback in the league. He may not put up similar numbers to Dak Prescott but he should be a decent replacement for us, especially in superflex leagues that can use two quarterbacks.

  • Parris Campbell, IND & Michael Pittman Jr, IND - Pittman (calf) will likely be the first to return to action, but not til Week 8 at the earliest (IND has a bye Week 7). Campbell (knee) may be able to return this season. If he does, he could be a productive player for us during the playoffs.
