1 A.J. Green, Bengals vs. Steelers.  Green is the top receiver this week, as he gets a favorable matchup with the Steelers. Pittsburgh is giving up the second-most fantasy points per game (FPPG) to WRs, and Green will almost certainly take advantage. Green has seen at least eight targets in all of his appearances and he has five TDs. He should improve upon the latter figure in this contest and really is poised for a massive day. 2 Julio Jones, Falcons vs. Buccaneers.  Jones has been a major disappointment this season from a TD perspective (he still has zero) but he should have a chance to get one against the Bucs. In 12 career games against Tampa Bay, Jones has 1,413 yards and 10 TDs — good for an average of 16.78 FPPG. It will also help his cause that Tampa Bay has allowed the third-most FPPG to WRs this year, so he should have a big day. 3 Mike Evans, Buccaneers @ Falcons.  The Falcons have allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to receivers this year. Evans caught a TD in each of his first three games of the season and totaled 137-plus yards twice. With Jameis Winston starting again, Evans’ upside is even higher, so he should be in for a good game in what figures to be a high-scoring affair. 4 DeAndre Hopkins, Texans vs. Bills.  In back-to-back games, Hopkins has posted at least 150 yards, and he currently leads the league in receiving yards with 594 yards. The Bills haven’t been bad against receivers and they have Tre’Davious White, who is one of the better young corners in the league, but Hopkins is just too good to be silenced in this matchup. 5 Antonio Brown, Steelers @ Bengals 6 Odell Beckham Jr., Giants vs. Eagles.  The Eagles have struggled badly against WRs this year, and that shouldn’t change during a short week. Beckham will have a chance to build on his two-TD game from last week as a result. 7 Adam Thielen, Vikings vs. Cardinals.  Thielen has logged at least 100 yards in five games to start the season. He’s remarkably consistent, and he should have a chance to continue his success against the Cardinals. If he keeps seeing 10-plus targets a week, as he has so far, he will have a shot to be a top-10 receiver every week.   WEEK 6 DFS GPP LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKings 8 JuJu Smith-Schuster, Steelers @ Bengals 9 Davante Adams, Packers vs. 49ers.  Adams has posted at least 11 fantasy points every week this season, and he’s coming off his best performance of the year, logging nine catches for 140 yards and a score against the Lions. The 49ers secondary isn’t particularly strong and will have trouble dealing with Aaron Rodgers, so Adams could be poised for another big game. 10 Tyreek Hill, Chiefs @ Patriots.  The Patriots have been susceptible to being beaten by the pass this season, as evidenced by their poor Week 2 showing against the Jaguars. Hill could give their secondary some serious trouble, and he’s always a threat to break a long TD. 11 Keenan Allen, Chargers @ Browns 12 Julian Edelman, Patriots vs. Chiefs. After playing his first game for the Patriots in since 2016, Edelman picked up where he left off with Tom Brady in his first game back. He had seven catches for 57 yards, and it appears that he is going to continue to be one of Brady’s top targets. Against the Chiefs defense, Edelman should have a shot to put up a high-volume of receptions and could get into the end zone — especially if this turns into an offensive battle as many are projecting. 13 Stefon Diggs, Vikings vs. Cardinals. Diggs is the 1B to Thielen’s 1A in Minnesota, but that hasn’t stopped him from putting up big numbers this postseason. He’s seen at least 10 targets in the past four games and has 214 yards in the past two contests combined. He hasn’t scored since Week 2, so he might be due to put up a TD against the Cardinals. 14 Allen Robinson, Bears @ Dolphins. Coming off a bye week, the Bears get to take on the Dolphins, who have allowed a WR to post at least 11 fantasy points in three straight weeks. Robinson is one of Trubisky’s favorite targets, and he should continue to grow into his role in a good matchup with Miami.   ​WEEK 6 DFS CASH LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKings 15 Brandin Cooks, Rams @ Broncos. Cooks is dealing with a concussion, so it’s unclear whether or not he will play. However, if he can suit up, the speedy top wide-out will have a chance to grab a long score against Denver, much like Robby Anderson did last week when he caught two long TDs. It just depends on whether or not Cooks can clear concussion protocol. 16 John Brown, Ravens @ Titans. Brown has emerged as the No. 1 receiver in Baltimore, and he saw a season-high 14 targets last week. His volume of opportunities, deep speed, and favorable matchup with the Titans who allow the seventh-most FPPG to opposing WRs make him a great play in Week 6. 17 Jarvis Landry, Browns vs. Chargers. Landry hasn’t scored many TDs this season, but he’s seen double-digit targets in 4-of-5 games this year. The Chargers have given up the fourth-most FPPG to receivers this year, so Landry is a great play in a home matchup that could see the Browns throw a lot. 18 Calvin Ridley, Falcons vs. Buccaneers. Ridley disappointed his fantasy owners last week when he was unable to come down with a TD for the first time since Week 1. He should have a chance to get back into the end zone against the Bucs, who have allowed nine passing TDs in just four games this season. 19 Tyler Boyd, Bengals vs. Steelers. Boyd has seen at least seven targets every week since Week 2, and he now gets an excellent matchup with the Steelers. If he continues to get a lot of opportunities, he could put up big numbers and should be a WR2 this week. 20 T.Y. Hilton, Colts @ Jets 21 Cooper Kupp, Rams @ Broncos. Like his teammate Cooks, Kupp is dealing with a concussion and his status for Sunday is uncertain. But if he plays, he’s a part of a high-flying offense and should be considered a WR2.   MORE WEEK 6 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup Builder 22 Alshon Jeffery, Eagles @ Giants. Jeffery only caught two passes last week, but he still saw eight targets and appears to be a favorite of Carson Wentz. He should have a chance to produce against the Giants, though he and Wentz may not be 100 percent on a short week. 23 Sterling Shepard, Giants vs. Eagles. Shepard has been performing really well as the No. 2 option in the Giants offense, and he has at least 75 yards in his last three games. Against the weak Eagles secondary, Shepard should have a chance to be productive again — especially if the Eagles try to key in too much on Odell Beckham Jr. 24 DeSean Jackson, Buccaneers @ Falcons. Jackson is averaging almost 25 yards per catch this season, and all it takes for him to be effective is one big play. The Falcons don’t have the secondary talent or speed to contain him, so there’s a good chance that he could break a long score. And with Jameis Winston at the helm, his chances of getting accurate downfield passes should improve. 25 Randall Cobb, Packers vs. 49ers 26 Robert Woods, Rams @ Broncos. Woods is one of three Rams currently ranked in the top 30, but he could end up being the No. 1 guy for the team if Cooks and Kupp can’t go due to concussions. If that happens, he’ll definitely move up the rankings in a decent matchup with the Broncos. 27 Josh Gordon, Patriots vs. Chiefs. In each of his first two games as a Patriot, Gordon has logged 18 snaps. That number figures to go up soon, and with an extended period of rest, he may be ready to take on a bigger role. The Chiefs defense has been porous this season, so this is a great chance for Gordon to break out. Of course, even if he doesn’t play a lot more snaps, Gordon is always a scoring threat, so he’ll be a WR3 anyway. 28 Emmanuel Sanders, Broncos vs. Rams. Sanders has consistently been the top target for Case Keenum this season and after seeing a season-high 14 targets last week, that seems unlikely to change. The Rams have a great defense, but their corners aren’t fully healthy and they’ve given up five double-digit scoring games to WRs in the past three weeks. So, Sanders could have a solid outing and will certainly have an opportunity to catch some passes. 29 Amari Cooper, Raiders vs. Seahawks (in London). Cooper has alternated poor games with great games this season and if that trend continues, he should be due for a solid outing. However, the Seahawks have been good against receivers (12th-best) so Cooper may have trouble keeping the trend going. 30 Corey Davis, Titans vs. Ravens. Davis is still Marcus Mariota’s No. 1 receiver, but he hasn’t gotten into a rhythm yet this season. That probably won’t change against a very good Baltimore defense that should continue to improve as the year goes along. 31 Tyler Lockett, Seahawks @ Raiders (in London). Lockett has a TD in 4-of-5 games this season, and he’s a really good deep threat. That said, he doesn’t catch a lot of passes, so occasionally will put up a dud. That seems unlikely to happen against the Raiders, as they give up the fifth-most FPPG to WRs. 32 Sammy Watkins, Chiefs @ Patriots 33 Nelson Agholor, Eagles @ Giants. Agholor has caught the ball a lot this season, but is only averaging 7.3 yards per catch. The opportunities are there for him, and it’s just a matter of time before he has a breakout game, even as the third option in the Eagles offense. 34 Demaryius Thomas, Broncos vs. Rams. Thomas went over 100 yards and scored last week for the first time since Week 1. He may have trouble if the Rams put Marcus Peters on him, but he can still be trusted given that the game flow will likely result in the Broncos having to frequently pass the ball. 35 Michael Crabtree, Ravens @ Titans 36 Mohamed Sanu, Falcons vs. Buccaneers. Sanu’s string of solid matchups continues, and if he continues to see seven targets a game — a number that he’s reached in each of the past three games — then he should have a chance to score again and put up some yardage. 37 Chris Godwin, Buccaneers @ Falcons. Godwin should benefit from what figures to be a high-scoring Falcons-Buccaneers showdown. 38 Kenny Stills, Dolphins vs. Bears 39 Quincy Enunwa, Jets vs. Colts 40 Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals @ Vikings. Sam Bradford and Josh Rosen haven’t been able to take advantage of the veteran this season. He’s merely a FLEX play at best until he can prove that he has something left in the tank. 41 Devin Funchess, Panthers @ Redskins. Funchess only has one TD this year and hasn’t really done much to inspire hope as a starter in fantasy. The Redskins were fourth-best against receivers before their clash with the Saints, so it could be a tough week for Funchess on the road. 42 Antonio Callaway, Browns vs. Chargers 43 Mike Williams, Chargers @ Browns 44 Keke Coutee, Texans vs. Bills. Coutee has averaged 11 targets during his first two NFL games, and he has 160 yards and a TD in that time. He may become the No. 2 option in the Houston offense with Will Fuller serving as more of the deep threat, so he’s definitely an intriguing option in a good matchup with the Bills. 45 Jamison Crowder, Redskins vs. Panthers 46 Geronimo Allison, Packers vs. 49ers 47 Paul Richardson, Redskins vs. Panthers 48 Pierre Garcon, 49ers @ Packers 49 Jordy Nelson, Raiders vs. Seahawks (in London) 50 Will Fuller, Texans vs. Bills. Fuller is still dealing with a hamstring injury, but he can always take the top off a defense. We’re just wondering if the targets will be there for him to be a top target, following the emergence of Coutee. 51 Keelan Cole, Jaguars @ Cowboys 52 Robby Anderson, Jets vs. Colts 53 Doug Baldwin, Seahawks vs. Raiders (in London). He had one catch for a yard last week. It’s clear that he’s not 100 percent, so it’s very hard to trust him in any capacity. 54 Dede Westbrook, Jaguars @ Cowboys 55 Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Packers vs. 49ers. MVS showed well in place of Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison last week. If either is out again, he’ll be the third receiver for the Packers offense and that will give him some fantasy value. 56 Donte Moncrief, Jaguars @ Cowboys 57 Taylor Gabriel, Bears @ Dolphins 58 Marquise Goodwin, 49ers @ Packers 59 Chester Rogers, Colts @ Jets. If T.Y. Hilton’s hamstring isn’t healthy by Sunday, Rodgers will move up, as he will be the de facto No. 1 receiver for the Colts. 60 Willie Snead, Ravens @ Titans 61 D.J. Moore, Panthers @ Redskins 62 Kelvin Benjamin, Bills @ Texans 63 Christian Kirk, Cardinals @ Vikings 64 Phillip Dorsett, Patriots vs. Chiefs 65 John Ross, Bengals vs. Steelers 66 Tyrell Williams, Chargers @ Browns 67 Chris Hogan, Patriots vs. Chiefs 68 Albert Wilson, Dolphins vs. Bears 69 Allen Hurns, Cowboys vs. Jaguars 70 Ryan Grant, Colts @ Jets 71 Michael Gallup, Cowboys vs. Jaguars 72 Danny Amendola, Dolphins vs. Bears 73 Cole Beasley, Cowboys vs. Jaguars 74 Terrelle Pryor, Jets vs. Colts
