Fantasy Football 2015: Week 6 Sleeper Picks
Taking a Look at the Week 6 Waiver Wire Trends and Sleepers
October 16, 2015
It’s a fantasy football Friday, and that means it’s time for our weekly sleepers list as we head toward the Sunday games. This edition is for Week 6, and there are at least a handful of notable players who are popular sleeper pickups out there on the waiver wire. Let’s take a closer look at a few.
Javorius Allen, RB, Baltimore Ravens: Depending on the health of No. 1 RB Justin Forsett, the Ravens may have to rely on Allen quite a bit this weekend. Forsett is dealing with an ankle injury, and the team is now without Lorenzo Taliaferro, so Allen is their lone healthy guy.
Even if Forsett plays, he could be limited, which would open up the workload for Allen. He’s a smart pickup right now.

Ahmad Bradshaw, RB, Indianapolis Colts: Let’s stick with RB and visit Bradshaw. He was signed to a 1-year deal by the Colts this week, and is now healthy after his broken leg.
Bradshaw provides some much-needed depth behind Frank Gore, and could be a major factor in the passing game. Deeper PPR owners need to check him out.
Blake Bortles, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars: If’ you’re searching for a potential sleeper at quarterback, Bortles is probably the guy to visit. He’s coming off four touchdowns and 303 yards in a loss at Tampa Bay and gets a good matchup this week.
The Texans will be heading to Jacksonville on Sunday, and Houston has been a sieve in the passing game the past couple of weeks.
Tennessee Titans Defense: There are at least a few reasons to look toward the Titans as potential starters on defense this week. They’ve allowed 14 or fewer points in two of their four games, and have four sacks in two of four as well.
Tennessee will welcome in a flailing Miami offense this week and should be able to snag a handful of sacks and turnovers.
Marquess Wilson, WR, Chicago Bears: We like Wilson as a WR sleeper this week. He’s coming off six catches on eight targets for 85 yards and a score in Week 5, and has at least eight targets, six catches and 80 yards in both of his last two games.
Wilson will be in Detroit to face off against a fairly permissive Lions pass defense. He should get plenty of work.
