Week 6 QB Sleepers and Landmines

by , and • October 10, 2018

Each week, as we prepare to make some difficult lineup decisions, our team, which includes Rob Willette, Ryan McDowell, and Sal Leto, will bring you a few sleepers and landmines for each position. Our sleeper picks could be on your waiver wire or a low-priced DFS target or could simply be going overlooked this week. On the other hand, our landmine players are getting attention, too much attention. These are players we feel are being overvalued and overpriced and would avoid for this week.

SLEEPERS

Eli Manning $5,900

I know Giants QB Eli Manning has become a punchline and a point of frustration for fantasy owners of Odell Beckham and the other offensive stars on the roster but hear me out. Manning has finished as the QB13 in two of his past three games and is averaging 289 passing yards and 1.5 touchdowns per game since his miserable opener. He also faces division foe Philadelphia, who allow 24 fantasy points to the quarterback position, eleventh worst in the league. Manning has thrown for over 350 yards in three straight games against the Eagles.  – Ryan McDowell

Jameis Winston $6,900

Week in and week out it seems we see the Falcons in a shootout with some team. This week should be no different as both of these teams have been atrocious on defense in all aspects. Winston will start for the first time in 2018 after making a relief appearance in week 3 before heading into the bye. This gave him plenty of time to get reacquainted with his weapons. The offense the Bucs have played this year is actually more well-suited for Winston than Fitzpatrick. You may not remember that Jameis was on track to lead the league in passing and still was 13th overall playing just 13 games a year ago. The Falcons have been bludgeoned by QBs four weeks in a row giving up an average of 329.5 yards and three pass touchdowns in each game. – Sal Leto

Sam Darnold $5,400

Whenever I am gambling on a rookie quarterback who has been wholly ineffectual from a fantasy standpoint, I prefer it to be one facing a team who could travel to New York in a large SUV. The Colts dressed only 44 players last Thursday, and while they should be healthier and theoretically well-rested after ten days off, this is a team which does not have the talent to overcome significant personnel losses. Darnold has topped 200 yards only once and has thrown multiple touchdowns in just two games, so you’re acknowledging a bottomless floor. He is, however, coming off arguably his best game as a pro and the Jets figured out ways to utilize Robby Anderson in Week 5. Darnold is not the sexist streamer but he is a strong option if you’re investing heavily elsewhere. – Rob Willette

LANDMINES

Philip Rivers $7,800

Surprisingly, the Browns have only allowed a single QB1 performance this season and they’ll host Philip Rivers and the Chargers traveling across the country for an early kickoff. That usually spells trouble for west coast teams. Rivers has been fantastic this season, finishing no lower than QB15 in any week. While I expect him still in that range against Denzel Ward and company, there are many other cheaper options I like better.. – Ryan McDowell

Deshaun Watson $7,400

After having a rough week one output Watson has rattled off some massive yardage totals all over 300 in each of the last four. Just six passing touchdowns in the five games is steady, not great. Buffalo has actually been tough on QBs the last three weeks holding Cousins, Rodgers and Mariota to two total passing touchdowns and an average of 241 yards. Keep in mind Watson was hit hard over and over on Sunday and is coming into this matchup with a chest injury. Definitely something to monitor leading up to game day. – Sal Leto

Ben Roethlisberger $7,700

The home/road splits for Big Ben are well-known at this point. Drill down a bit further, however, and the real issue lies when the Steelers are part of the early kickoff slate. Ben tends to shine when the lights are on and sleepwalk when not part of an island game. Sunday’s tilt kicks off at 1 PM EST. The Bengals are a middling 21st in pass defense through the first five weeks and it is tough to bench a quarterback in a game with an Over/Under of 54.5, but this is not a week to chase Roethlisberger’s ceiling. – Rob Willette
