Week 6 Shore Thing Sleepers (2023)

by IBT Media Staff

“Shore Thing Sleepers” isn’t your ordinary fantasy football Week 6 start/sit article. Instead, our analyst duo of Seth Woolcock and Eric Romoff highlight lower-valued players that can provide starting-caliber production for a specific week. These are usually players near the end of your bench or even on the waiver wire/free agency. You can catch an additional sleeper pick live at the end of our weekly in-season Friday podcast episode.

Rostership percentages are based on ESPN Points Per Reception (PPR) redraft fantasy football leagues.

Week 6 Start/Sit Consideration: Shore Thing Sleepers

Drake London (WR, Atlanta Falcons) | 79.5% Rostered

Drake London, currently the PPR WR41 on the season, is in a prime position to exploit a favorable matchup against the Washington Commanders. London will likely see a lot of Kendall Fuller and Emmanuel Forbes, who both had challenging outings last week, giving up three touchdowns and nearly surrendering a fourth to D.J. Moore. This presents a golden opportunity for London to make an impact in Week 6.

Quarterback Desmond Ridder has been stepping up his passing game, averaging 34.5 pass attempts since Week 1, a significant increase from Week 1’s 18 attempts. In this stretch, London has been a reliable target, averaging 7.5 targets per game and consistently scoring double digits in three out of four games. Notably, London leads his team in red zone targets with seven, ranking seventh among wide receivers in this metric. With his ability to find the end zone, London is poised for another strong performance in Week 6, so keep an eye on him for your Week 6 start/sit decisions. Woolcock

Jahan Dotson (WR, Washington Commanders) | 64.5% Rostered

Despite a poor beginning to the season, Jahan Dotson is a player you shouldn’t overlook in Week 6. His role has shifted more of an interior WR this season, totaling 127 slot snaps, ranking 10th among wide receivers. The Commanders could be limited in the outside passing game, with how well CBs AJ Terrell and Jeff Okudah are players for the Falcons. This means Dotson should have ample opportunities to exploit the middle of the field.

Quarterback Sam Howell has been chucking the ball around the yard, ranking seventh in passing yards per game (269.8), more than even the likes of Patrick Mahomes. Howell is also fifth in pass attempts with 191. Look for the second-year signal-caller to dial up Dotson on Sunday. Romoff
