Fantasy football Player Projections: Breaking down Week 6

Photo:

A.J. Green is bound to break out for a huge game, and it will come this week against the Bills.

I'm sorry if you find yourself lined up across the fantasy field from Peyton Manning on Sunday.

The Broncos are 28-point favorites over the Jaguars this week. Manning could account for at least that many points with his passing touchdowns alone. A 30-point fantasy day feels like a lock.

Who else is in line for a big day? Who will disappoint their owners? Let's find out with the Week 6 projections.

    Manning owners, the world is your oyster. Kick back and enjoy another huge game.

    4. PASS YDS367
    5. PASS TD3
    6. INT0
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    Romo won't measure up to Peyton Manning in this game, but he'll give his owners a nice day in a favorable matchup.

    Rodgers had a quiet game by his standards, throwing for 274 yards and a TD. He was this close to 300 and two, but what was initially ruled a TD for James Jones was overturned.

Running Backs

    1. 1
    2. Jamaal Charles
    3. Jamaal
      Charles
      RB
    4. RUSH YDS76
    5. RUSH TD1
    6. REC YDS72
    7. REC TD1

    Chalk up another 145 yards from scrimmage and a TD for Charles. He'll flash those dual threat skills against the Raiders.

    1. 2
    2. Adrian Peterson
    3. Adrian
      Peterson
      RB
    4. RUSH YDS121
    5. RUSH TD2
    6. REC YDS16
    7. REC TD0

    Even against Carolina's strong run defense, I expect Peterson to have a huge day.

    1. 3
    2. Arian Foster
    3. Arian
      Foster
      RB
    4. RUSH YDS101
    5. RUSH TD2
    6. REC YDS36
    7. REC TD0

    Foster sure is done, huh? He had another 118 yards from scrimmage last week, and should be in line for a big game against the Rams.

Tight Ends

    2. Jimmy Graham
    3. Jimmy
      Graham
      TE
    4. REC YDS121
    5. REC TD1

    Sure, Graham had 10 catches for 135 yards last week, but he didn't score? What a bum.

    1. 2
    2. Jason Witten
    3. Jason
      Witten
      TE
    4. REC YDS108
    5. REC TD1

    Witten had a monster day against the Broncos last week. It's hard to picture the Redskins doing much better against him.

    1. 3
    2. Greg Olsen
    3. Greg
      Olsen
      TE
    4. REC YDS82
    5. REC TD1

    Olsen caught five passes for 79 yards against a strong pass defense in Arizona. If healthy, he'll do even better against a mediocre one in Minnesota.

Defenses

    1. 1
    2. San Francisco 49ers
    3. PTS ALLOWED10
    4. SACKS5
    5. INT2
    6. TD1

    The Niners put up another monster game without Patrick Willis, posting four takeaways and a TD while allowing just three points. They should have another big day this week.

    1. 2
    2. Cincinnati Bengals
    3. PTS ALLOWED6
    4. SACKS4
    5. INT3
    6. TD0

    What a performance by the Bengals a week ago, holding the Patriots to six points and sacking Tom Brady four times. They'll build on that in a huge way against the Bills and QB Thad Lewis, who was just signed off the practice squad.

    1. 3
    2. New York Jets
    3. PTS ALLOWED13
    4. SACKS4
    5. INT2
    6. TD0

    If not for a questionable flag, the Jets would have had two impressive goalline stands against the Falcons. They registered one takeaway and two sacks while allowing 28 points. Expect them to put the heat on Roethlisberger.
