If you have any players from the Saints or Lions, make sure they are out of your lineup for Week 6.

Here are my Top 50 options at the position this week.
TOP 50 WEEK 6 RANKINGS BELOW
Adams is option No. 1 for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, which means a lot in the fantasy football world. He is tied for averaging the eighth-most fantasy points per game among wide receivers. He has also scored in four of five games this season and has at least five catches in every appearance so far. Last week, Adams went off for 140 yards and a score on nine catches. This week I have him as my No. 1 wide receiver, partially due to his matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, who have allowed six receiving scores to the position this season.
Evans is my No. 4 wide receiver for Week 6. The huge Tampa Bay Buccaneers target has a matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, a unit tied with the New Orleans Saints for allowing a league-high 10 scores to opposing wide receivers. The Falcons have also allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to the position. Fire up Evans as a WR1.
Green and the Cincinnati Bengals host the rival Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6. The Bengals' top receiving option already has five touchdowns and had his best game in terms of yardage in Week 5. This week he comes in as my No. 6 option, just above Steelers star Antonio Brown. I'm forecasting a huge game for Green in a Bengals victory.
Jamison Crowder is my No. 44 option at wide receiver in Week 6. I'm expecting a fringe WR3 performance from the Washington Redskins target, whom you should only use if you are in a pinch. Crowder had 55 yards on four catches in Week 5 and I expect his workload to ramp up down the stretch. The Redskins face the Carolina Panthers in Week 6, a unit allowing the ninth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.

|48||Donte Moncrief||Jacksonville Jaguars||at DAL|
|49||Pierre Garcon||San Francisco 49ers||at GB|
|50||Antonio Callaway||Cleveland Browns||vs. LAC|
Pierre Garcon is another dart throw WR3 option if you are in a jam in Week 6. I expect the 49ers target to find some room in the Packers' secondary, a unit that has allowed eight scores to opposing wide receivers this season. Garcon has yet to score this season, but has a great chance in this matchup, as the 49ers should be playing from behind.
