Fantasy Football Week 6’s top boom-or-bust players


Last week felt crazier than usual with tons of missed kicks, a double punt, multiple overtimes, and incredible comebacks, all leading to some wild fantasy performances. As we prepare for Week 6, some of us were on the wrong side of those massive outputs and need some fantasy miracles.

Here is this week’s crop of lottery starters, players who could come up big for you as bye week fill-ins for Week 6 — or they may not.

Michel isn’t known for setting off fireworks on the field, at least on any consistent basis. However, this year in LA he’s getting the kind of work we like to see from an RB3 with flex potential. He’s on the field for an average of 31% of the snaps through five games, but his touch rate per snap is 50.5 percent, meaning he’ll most likely get the ball when on the field. He’s also seeing red-zone usage, with eight attempts so far in 2021 from inside the 20-yard line and two more inside the five.

The Giants have allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing RBs this season, and this contest’s game script should lean towards higher usage for Michel.

Mo Alie-Cox, TE (Colts) vs. Texans

The Colts are still giving us the dreaded TE-by-committee approach, but Alie-Cox may be running away with the starting job. He’s seen nine balls in the past two games, while Jack Doyle and Kylen Granson were targeted two and four times, respectively. He wasn’t able to find the end zone against Baltimore on Monday night after a two-score performance in Week 4, but he did catch 3-of-4 balls for 56 yards.

This week MAC gets a Texans defensive unit that has surrendered the most half-PPR points per contest so far this season to the TE position, allowing 17.0 per tilt….
