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 pass the grade for Week 6.
Chase Claypool / JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns
It seems like there’s a new WR1 on the Steelers every week but Claypool’s huge Week 5 could be classified as his official arrival onto the fantasy scene. For those who managed to wrestle him away from the rest of the league in waivers, can immediately put him into the lineup against the Browns.
Thanks to injuries, the Browns lack big star power at their CB2 spot which has allowed secondary receivers like Tyler Boyd, Dontrelle Inman, Willie Snead, and CeeDee Lamb to have big days against Cleveland. Denzel Ward will probably stick to one side rather than shadow a receiver but Ben Roethlisberger would be wise to look the other side. That said, Pittsburgh will be moving their receivers all around the field to keep the Browns on their heels.
