DeAndre Hopkins fantasy football rankings Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals struck gold when trading for WR DeAndre Hopkins. He is our leader for week 6 fantasy rankings at the wide receiver position.

By Craig Forrestal

Week 6. This Week 6 seems like it was flung together with reschedules and all sorts of craziness leading us to the 2020 Edition of NFL Football. There were some guys that came out of nowhere in Week 5 and seem like they may have a role going forward with their team. And some of those guys that came out of nowhere still have the jury out on them and may not have fully convinced some of us yet. Let us see what the Week 6 Draft Diamonds Fantasy Rankings look like!

3 Weekly Sleepers

  1. Andy Dalton/ QB/ Dallas Cowboys: History tells us that Dalton is absolutely atrocious at night. Terrible. But I’m not willing to say Dalton is dead. While the Cardinals aren’t soft against QBs they’re not terrifyingly intimidating either. Ezekiel Elliott, CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Dalton Schultz will ease the transition for any backup QB but a backup QB with roughly a decade of starting experience should fit right in. While the offense will look different compared to Dak Prescott it will still be an offense that should score roughly 24-27 points every week.
  2. Laviska Shenault/ WR/ Jacksonville Jaguars: so whether or not DJ Chark plays is irrelevant. Chark sat out of Wednesday’s practice meaning the team could play without him against Detroit. Shenault has grown every week in the offense and his time to shine could be this week against a favorable matchup. Gardner Minshew has been effective so far this season. But it’s important to start the game strongly and Shenault offers the Jaguars the option to play through him in both the running and passing game.
  3. Mecole Hardman/ WR/ Kansas City Chiefs: Sammy Watkins is expected to miss some time with a hamstring injury. Insert Hardman into the role of Sammy Watkins. Hardman, too, has Olympian-like speed on the football field so there will be no athletic drop-off between the 2. Hardman has scored a TD in 2 games this season showing when he gets the opportunity with the ball in his hands good things happen. 

3 Weekly Fades

  1. Joe Burrow/ QB/ Cincinnati Bengals: The Colts defense has been surprisingly tough this season. While many expected the defense to improve I don’t think this was the projected growth. Even if he’s playing from behind against the Colts, he’ll struggle to find success against the Colts’ league-leading pass defense. There are better streaming options out there.
  2. Darrell Henderson/ RB/ LA Rams: The 49ers got shredded by the Dolphins and Ryan Fitzpatrick through the air last week but managed to keep the RBs in check. I expect the RBBC ( Running Back By Committee) to stay in place but I don’t see this as being the week for Henderson to shine.
  3. Logan Thomas/ TE/ Washington Football Team: But, Craig, they play the Giants! I’m aware. However, who will be throwing the ball to Logan Thomas? Will it be Kyle Allen or Alex Smith? I’m not confident in either one right now to support Terry McLaurin and one RB in the passing game. Until one of the QBs shows they can support multiple pass catchers I’d stay away. Even in a desperate streaming situation.
