Week 6 of the 2020 NFL season and we are cruising along right..? Lol Yes it’s been a tough year with injuries and unexpected postponements, but if you are surviving thus far, keep working the waiver wire and checking out the TWSN website for the best put together betting & Fantasy Football info. Here are some matchups that I like this week to help propel you to another W this week.
ADAM THIELEN WR MINNESOTA VIKINGS sure has a juicy matchup this week as the Minnesota Vikings welcome to town the 0-5 Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons will be taking the field Sunday fresh off a mini-house cleaning, after relieving GM Thomas Dimitrof & HC Dan Quinn of their respective duties. After 5 weeks Adam Thielen is leading all WRs with 6 receiving TDs & looks to add to that total vs an Atlanta defense which ranks 2nd in most yards per game given up & 2nd in points allowed per game. Thielen is seeing a healthy 37% of the target shares, even with the coming on of Justin Jefferson (who I like alot this week as well) & with an O/U of 55 he should see his fair share of targets in a game that should see a lot of action.
KENNY GOLLADAY WR DETROIT LIONS is finally healthy and ready to go for the Detroit Lions. It took till Week 3 for Golladay to debut in 2020 after missing the first 2 weeks with a hamstring injury. Golladay has been ballin, posting a score in consecutive weeks vs NO Saints CB Marshon Lattimore & Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson respectively. This week the Lions travel to Jacksonville to face a Jaguar secondary that has surrendered 6 pass TDs over the last 3 weeks & an average of 275 pass yards. The O/U on this game is set at 55 and suggests that this one can get wild, look for 80+ and a score from Golladay.
MYLES GASKIN RB MIAMI DOLPHINS has been a pleasant surprise this year. After investing quite heavily in the RB position this offseason by signing Jordan Howard & trading for Matt Breida, it’s been the 234th pick of the 2019 draft that has been leading the way for the Phins backfield. Gaskin has received 10+ rush attempts & has hauled in 14 receptions in the last three games & with a plus matchup this week vs the hapless NY Jets who are allowing 128 rush yards & averaging 5 receptions to RBs per game. The Vegas line suggests the Dolphins at -9.5 at home will be playing with a lead keeping Gaskin involved for a solid day’s work!
STEFON DIGGS WR BUFFALO BILLS hasn’t taken long to win over the hearts of Bills Mafia. In his first 5 games since being traded to “That other NY team” Diggs has posted three 100 yard games, which currently ranks 2nd in WR targets, 3rd in receptions & has clearly distinguished himself as Josh Allen’s go to guy. The Chiefs allowed 347 pass yards & 3 pass TDs to Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 5, and a 118 yard performance by rookie WR Henry Ruggs, so I can see Diggs getting behind the Chiefs secondary with the same ease. I believe the Buffalo Bills & KC Chiefs may have been overlooking their respective Week 5 opponents (both lost) with the anticipation of this showdown, a potential AFC Championship Game preview. With an O/U set at 58 this looks to be a fantasy bonanza as these teams can easily go score for score.
