It’s time to get your team right heading into the midway of the fantasy football season. If you’re sitting at 1-4 or 2-3, this is a must-win week. If you don’t, you’re as good as dead. You’ll never be able to sneak into the playoffs to do some damage and everyone will shame you. Luckily, the waiver wire looks healthy, and there are some juicy matchups out there.
With only Tampa Bay and Minnesota on BYE for Week 6, your roster should be relatively strong (Mike Evans, Charles Sims, the injured Doug Martin, the injured Stefon Diggs, maybe Jerick McKinnon and the Viking defense were the only people you could use from those squads).
Let’s dive in.
Start of the Week
Larry Fitzgerald: Even with Drew Stanton under center Larry Fitzgerald exceeded expectations. He had a 6/81/2 line against the 49ers on Thursday Night Football, now he’s facing one of the worst pass defenses in the league, your New York football Jets. Even if Carson Palmer doesn’t return (which he probably will), Fitz will eat up the Jets’ secondary. You cannot deny a man who knocks over defenders en route to a touchdown, then a teammate while celebrating said touchdown. Even Fitz can’t control his powers.
