Wide Receiver Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 6

Kadarius Toney, New York Giants

With so many injuries on the Giants, Kadarius Toney might be a good start

While it is usually the running back injuries that fantasy managers take note of, there have been plenty of wide receiver injuries as well. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Quintez Cephus were two more players to go down in Week 5 and are likely out for the rest of the season. Their injuries should open up more targets for others on their respective teams, such as Chase Claypool, Diontae Johnson, and Amon-Ra St. Brown. While it is hard to say what the impact will be, fantasy managers should keep an eye on those players for Week 6 and beyond.

For the New York Giants, fantasy managers should look at Kadarius Toney. While he did suffer an injury, it appears to be minor. The team lost not only Saquon Barkley, but Daniel Jones and Kenny Golladay in Week 5 to different injuries. With Darius Slayton and Sterling Shephard already missing time due to hamstring injuries, this could be a great opportunity for Toney. He has to be healthy and do a better job of maintaining his composure, but if that all works out, he might be a decent fantasy option this week.
