Week 6 WR Recap

Let’s take a look at some of the big performances by fantasy wide outs in week six.

Analysis: Riley Cooper had himself a big day on Sunday afternoon against the Bucs. Cooper caught 4 balls on 6 targets for 120 yards and a touchdown. Cooper isn’t the most reliable fantasy wide out though. Today was his first game with more than two receptions and 30 receiving yards this year. Cooper may get some love on the wire this upcoming week but it would be wise to avoid him. He is available in 90-97% of fantasy leagues.

Emmanuel Sanders is another under the radar wide out to check out. Sanders posted 3 receptions on 6 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown against the Jets. Sanders has two 70 plus receiving yard games this year and four games he has surpassed the 55 yard mark. He’s not going to be a touchdown/red zone performer but he should rack up a decent amount of yards with the Steeler running game missing in action. Sanders is available in 15-50% of fantasy leagues.

Brandon LaFell is another wide out like Cooper that will be hard to trust going forward. LaFell put up 107 yards on only 4 receptions with a touchdown against the Vikings; he now has 3 receiving touchdowns this year. LeFell has been targeted more than five times just twice this season. He makes more sense than Cooper and can be considered a depth add. He is available in 80-95% of fantasy leagues.
