Holy moly. It’s Week 6 already of the fantasy football season! How is everyone feeling? How’s your home team doing? Have you been toasting your buddies in celebration or drowning in your sorrows alone? Or is it a mixture of both? Let’s try to ramp up the celebrations. Here are my best Week 6 PrizePicks player predictions!
NFL Week 6 PrizePicks Player Predictions
Logan Thomas (TE, Washington Commanders) More Than 36.5 Receiving Yards
The Atlanta Falcons are allowing opposing tight ends an average of 62.6 receiving yards per game so far this season. Washington Commanders tight end Logan Thomas has averaged 45.8 receiving yards per game. In last week’s “Thursday Night Football” matchup, Thomas was the preeminent receiving option for the team with a glorious 77 receiving yards. His momentum is only going to continue into this week. Smash the over on this low PrizePicks prop line.
Tyjae Spears (RB, Tennesee Titans) More Than 27.5 Rushing Yards
Tyjae Spears is coming into his own and rising as a force to be reckoned with as far as NFL running backs are concerned. In the Week 5 game, Spears had seven carries compared to Derrick Henry’s 13. In the previous weeks, he averaged around a quarter of the touches. Keep watch on him. The Baltimore Ravens allow an average of 83.4 rushing yards to opposing running backs. Spears is averaging 31.2 rushing yards per game. However seeing the progress he made in week 5, I’m anticipating a much higher average for him going forward. This 27.5 number feels way too low. I’m taking the over on this PrizePicks line.
Geno Smith (QB, Seattle Seahawks) Less Than 20.5 Completions
The Cincinnati Bengals are only allowing an average of 18.2 pass completions to opposing quarterbacks per game. Combining that with quarterback Geno Smith’s average of 21 pass completions this season and those being against easier defenses, I am expecting him to be limited. It is also worth noting that receiver D.K. Metcalf was a non-participant in Thursday’s practice due to injury. If Metcalf is out or limited, this will only support this case of lower pass completions for Smith. Let’s call this a win in the Cincinnati defense column and go with the under.
Remember, with any PrizePicks play, follow your gut on the lines you agree with. Always play responsibly. And always, always make sure you’re having fun with it!
