Fantasy Sleepers Week 6: Myles Gaskin Ready To Roll Against The Jets

If you are in need of a fill-in option due to a bye week or injury, this is your chance to find some potential sleeper options to stun your opponent. This is also a spot to see what some of the best FLEX options are for Week 6. With a lot of injuries already sinking lineups, you are going to need to dive into deeper names that you might not be familiar with. To help set those lineups, head on over to our rankings and projections pages.

Quarterback

Ryan TannehillRyan Tannehill – QB – Tennessee Titans

I still find it odd that Ryan Tannehill is not rostered in over 75% of fantasy leagues. He has posted 25+ fantasy points in three out of four games this season and gets Houston this week, who have a defense worth targeting. Houston has allowed multiple touchdown games in three out of five games this season.

The Jaguars offense fell a bit flat last week but it was another game where Gardner Minshew had to put up monster volume. And he did that with 49 attempts, throwing for 301 yards and two touchdowns. He will get a matchup with the Lions who have allowed ten touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks in four games this season.

Running Backs

With Sony Michel on the IR, Damien Harris stepped in and rushed for 100 yards on 17 attempts. While he still didn’t see a full dose of snaps it was clear he would be involved when on the field. This spot isn’t the greatest but he is still involved in a good rushing attack that will be key this week in what should be a grind it out style game. The Broncos run defense is not bad, but they have allowed two hundred-yard rushers this season and have faced two offenses that didn’t commit to running much against them with Tampa and New York over the last two weeks.

Myles GaskinMyles Gaskin – RB – Miami Dolphins

Miami is big favorites which I haven’t said in a long time, but this bodes well for Myles Gaskin who has broken out of the pack and is the RB1 in Miami. He gets a very strong matchup against the Jets, who have allowed the 6th most PPR points to opposing running backs this season. Gaskin is a prime option to deploy, especially on a week with injuries and bye weeks.

ronald jonesRonald Jones II – RB – Tampa Bay Buccaneers

While Leonard Fournette is a GTD, I still believe Ronald Jones will get a majority of the touches regardless of his status. Jones gets a prime matchup against a Packers run defense that has not gotten better since last season. The Packers have allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to opposing backs and they are doing it on the ground and through the air.

Wide Receivers

Keelan ColeKeelan Cole – WR – Jacksonville Jaguars

We have yet to see DJ Chark and Laviska Shenault practice yet this week which means Keelan Cole is an interesting sleeper option and has streaming potential. The Lions are allowing the 8th most fantasy points per game and Cole seeing 7-8 targets against this unit would be a huge plus. Even if one of the names are out this week, Cole is in play. If everyone is healthy, he becomes less of an option, and my attention shifts towards Shenault as a sleeper option.

Marvin JonesMarvin Jones – WR – Detroit Lions

I love the Lions pass offense this week as they have a four-touchdown implied total and are facing one of the poorer defenses in the league. Marvin Jones is of course second fiddle to Kenny Golladay, this is a game where I can see the entire offense going off. The Jaguars rank 32nd in DVOA against the pass.

christian kirkChristian Kirk – WR – Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals passing attack has essentially been getting the ball to DeAndre Hopkins or let Kyler Murray run the ball. Christian Kirk has come off some better games and gets a secondary we want to target with just about everyone. Dallas ranks 20th against the pass and are allowing the second-most fantasy points per game this season to wide receivers.

Tight Ends

Eric EbronEric Ebron – TE – Pittsburgh Steelers

The Browns have allowed a 33-308-4 line to opposing tight ends this season, and are allowing the 7th most fantasy points per game. Eric Ebron should see around 5-6 targets in this one as that has been the case over the last few games. Diontae Johnson has been ruled out and while the depth is high on Pittsburgh’s side, Ebron against a poor Browns defense is well in play.

Dalton SchultzDalton Schultz – TE – Dallas Cowboys

Arizona was one of the worst teams against tight ends last season and while we knew they’d improve a bit they also haven’t faced many relevant offenses so far this season. This is another shootout potential game for the Cowboys and Schultz has taken advantage of the starting snaps. He is worth a look as a streaming option.
