This NFL season has given fantasy football owners many obstacles to overcome with injuries occurring each week to star players and COVID-19 cases starting to increase. So far, multiple games have been postponed due to COVID-19, making it challenging week to week to know who to start. The list of players will be related to 10 team leagues.
Start Em’ QB Kyler Murray
Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has surprised many owners this year. He has rewarded fantasy so far as his lowest performance this year was 21.7 points. Unlike last season, Murray has many weapons to throw to with his top target being DeAndre Hopkins. Murray is a must-start going against one of the worst defenses in the league, the Dallas Cowboys. Expecting a high scoring game, Murray should reward owners with a great performance.
Start Em’ RB Ronald Jones
Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones has earned a starting role and is rushing for 100 yards almost every game. This week he will have an opportunity to break out again as he faces the Packers who rank almost last in the league against the run. Owners should expect another big performance from Jones as he is due for a touchdown or two in week six.
Start Em’ WR Calvin Ridley
Calvin Ridley has been one of the top players in the NFL throughout the season. He did have a performance this season that resulted in owners scoring zero, however this week he is healthy and going against the Vikings’ weak secondary that is ranked twenty-eighth in the NFL. He is a must-start for week six.
Start Em’ TE Mark Andrews
Ravens tight end Mark Andrews will have a great opportunity to perform well against the Eagles defense that has struggled to contain tight ends all season. This season, Andrewss points have come from touchdowns but expect the number of targets to increase. Owners should give Andrews a shot as he is a high reward low risk play for week six.
Sit Em’ RB Mark Ingram
Mark Ingram has been a disappointment for fantasy owners this season and they should expect that to continue as the Ravens will only allow nine to ten carries. Ingram’s fantasy performance will only rely on scoring touchdowns making him too risky to start against the Eagles. The same could be said for the owners who own JK Dobbins or Gus Edwards.
Sit Em’ WR Greg Ward
Greg Ward has had a few productive performances in the past year and one this season but don’t expect that to happen against the Ravens. Ravens have a top-five defense and if DeSean Jackson isn’t healthy, Ward will be covered by Ravens’ top cornerback Marcus Peters or Marlon Humphrey. Owners should not take a chance on Ward in week six.
