With the increasing popularity of PPR leagues, the receivers, whether they’re big play receivers or slot receivers racking up the receptions, many successful teams depend on as many as three or four receivers. Which ones will score fantasy points, which ones won’t? We’ll clear up some of those options for you. Right now, let’s see which ones do NOT pass the grade for Week 6.
Tee Higgins, Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts
You can almost feel the shift happening in Cincinnati, where Higgins is becoming more of the top receiving option over longtime No. 1, A.J. Green. He’s already been targeted more over the last three weeks and has led the team in routes run in the same time frame. As we’ve seen though in recent weeks, Higgins success is directly tied to Joe Burrow being able to shorten the learning curve.
Now, in Week 6, Higgins will see second year Rock Ya-Sin and that’s a decent second-year cover man on him, who managed to minimize the damage done by the Cleveland receivers. In general, The Colts don’t give up a lot of receptions, just 11.2 per game. Split four or five ways, Higgins is gonna be starving for looks.
