Odell Beckham Jr. had his best game of the season last week, which included him throwing a TD pass
Week 6 is here already and it feels like this fantasy season is no longer new. Week 5 had some of the highest scoring from receivers of the season. Three of the names at the top of the list aren't too surprising in Odell Beckham Jr., Antonio Brown and Davante Adams, but then you also had Robby Anderson and rookie Tre'Quan Smith, who exploded onto the scene with a monster game on Monday night.
The Week 6 wide receiver rankings shouldn’t look that much different once again. Several young wideouts ending up having solid games in Week 5 and for guys like Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Christian Kirk, David Moore and Keke Coutee, there could be more to come. Smith could fall into this category too, but he's on bye this week. The same goes for Michael Thomas, Golden Tate, Marvin Jones Jr. and Kenny Golladay.
From a matchup standpoint, the Falcons have one of the best in getting Tampa Bay and league's worst pass defense (358.0 ypg) at home. So fire up those Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley shares (and maybe give a long look to Mohamed Sanu if you have need of a bye week fill-in)!
I am sure there will be more surprise outcomes and stat lines this week, but for the most part the WR rankings have remained consistent this season. (Aside from unwelcome developments like Doug Baldwin's no-show in Week 5.)
As always be sure to check back closer to Sunday for any last-minute tweaks to these rankings.
Teams on bye: Detroit, New Orleans
