Deshaun Watson, leading all QBs in fantasy scoring the past two weeks, cracks the top five this week
The quarterback that is currently leading his peers in fantasy points as we enter Week 6 is Deshaun Watson. Who would have predicted that? However, in standard scoring leagues, Watson was the quarterback with the most fantasy points in both Weeks 4 and 5 (scoring five touchdowns in each of those games will do that). For Week 6, Watson has earned the No. 4 QB ranking.
Some quarterbacks are dealing with injuries. Tom Brady has missed practice with a shoulder issue, but he's expected to play. Matthew Stafford was hobbled after the game, but he's not expected to miss time. Both Marcus Mariota and Derek Carr may return this week as well. While an injured quarterback isn't ideal (see Sam Bradford, Week 5), watching the practice reports this week will help fantasy owners.
Also, don't forget no Russell Wilson, Dak Prescott, Tyrod Taylor or Andy Dalton this week because their teams are on bye.
Teams on bye: Buffalo, Cincinnati, Dallas, Seattle
