Fantasy Football Guide Week VI

Super Freak of the Week: Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne had a spectacular game in week 5 against the Green Bay Packers, helping lead his team to a 30-27 victory! Wayne was targeted 20 times catching 13 passes for 212 yards and 1 TD on Sunday. Through four games, Wayne has caught 36 passes for 506 yards and two touchdowns and is on pace for a 2,016-yard receiving season. This is definitely Reggie’s year and should continue to flourish with the help of Andrew Luck. Bailey's Bench Em: Washington Redskin QB Robert Griffin III This week I really tried to stay away from a RB & decided to gamble with benching RG3 this week. RG3 does play at home, but against a Minnesota team that is playing very well all around. Minnesota does not create a lot of ints, but they do have 32 pass deflections (3rd in NFL) & have 14 sacks (9th in NFL) on the year. Minnesota only has allowed 6 passing TDs all year, only 226 passing yds/g, & allows just 16 pts/g. However, my decision is also based on a rookie QB about to play a good pass rush after a concussion. I'm thinking RG3 won't be the same player he has been so far & I'm positive Jared Allen & the Minnesota D will try to take advantage of RG3's set back. I imagine this game will be determined by Adrian Peterson, Alfred Morris, both D's & field position & not by RG3 throwing for 300yds & putting up 3 TDs. Nick’s Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller Redemption! I just have to say thank you to Trent Richardson for putting up some numbers for me this past week, or else my credibility might have gone right out the window. As for this week, my pick comes at the tight end position. It’s not a sexy pick by any means, but I’m going with Heath Miller. Last week he saw his worst fantasy out put of the week, but I feel will rebound going up against a Tennessee defense that has given up the most receptions, yards, and touchdowns to opposing tight ends thus far. Crossing my fingers. Sy Su's Sleeper: Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright You can't go wrong with Mr. Wright! The rookie already has 27 receptions in his young career, including a season-best 9 catches for 66 yards last week against a top-tier Minnesota Vikings defense. Week 6 features a tough matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, so expect Tennessee to be playing from behind. Matt Hasselbeck is going to have to throw it early and often (especially with how ineffective Chris Johnson has been). Wright was Hasselbeck's favorite target last week, getting a team-high 11 throws towards his, not Kenny Britt or Nate Washington's way. Kendall Wright has solid value as a WR3 and an even more valuable in a PPR league.
