2022 Nfl Week 6 Spoilers

nfl-week-6-spoilers

We are now at the 1/3 mark of the regular season and boy has it flown by! Last week was okay for my picks (I did change my mind about the Cowboys/Rams game but left my pick as the Rams out of integrity) and I'm riding a two game Lock of the Week streak.

I'm excited to see it this all continues in to week 6!


Last Week's Record: 9-7


2022 Season Record: 48-32


Lock of the Week: 2-3


Upset of the Week: 2-3

Washington (1-4) @ Chicago (2-3)

This should be an interesting defensive game, but Chicago is a good running offense (ranked 5th with 157 yards per game) while Washington isn't great (ranked 14th) against the ground game.

Bears, 17-14


San Francisco (3-2) @ Atlanta (2-3)

This one shouldn't be much different from the 49ers/Panthers game last week. This defense is incredible and should force multiple turnovers, while they ride Jeff Wilson offensively to an easy win.

49ers, 30-16


New England (2-3) @ Cleveland (3-2)

The Patriots surprised many last week with a 29-0 shutout over the Detroit Lions. However, New England will be on the road against a Browns team who can run the football efficiently and effectively like few teams can. They are allowing 128 rushing yards per game, which should mean Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt have a field day on the ground.

Browns, 27-23


NY Jets (3-2) @ Green Bay (3-2)

One of two games I REALLY wanted to call the upset on, the Packers are coming off a blown lead and loss to the Giants in London, while the Jets just crushed the Tua-less (and Bridgewater-less) Dolphins.

If this decent New York defense can get a couple of early stops or turnovers, the Jets could realistically run off with a tight victory. However, I see the Packers jumping out to an early lead, eventually forcing the Jets to try and throw their way back in it, and we see multiple Zach Wilson turnovers - even if the score looks close.

Packers, 24-23

Jacksonville (2-3) @ Indianapolis (2-2-1)

The Jags have had Indy's number - especially in Jacksonville. They already shut out the Colts 4 weeks ago in week 2, 24-0. They sacked Matt Ryan 5 times and forced 5 turnovers in the easy win.

I don't expect to see the same game script exactly, but the same end result for sure. James Robinson and Travis Etienne should do damage against the defense, despite their 4th ranking against the run. They are still without Shaquille Leonard and a turnover heavy game from Matt Ryan will wear down the defensive front.

Jaguars, 28-14


Minnesota (4-1) @ Miami (3-2)

If Tua were healthy, this could be my game of the week. But looking at it from a statistical standpoint, Miami has an awful defense. They have allowed either 100+ rushing yards or 300+ passing yards (or both) in every game this season other than their 20-7 win over New England in week 1.

With Kirk Cousins, Dalvin Cook, Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen on the Vikings offense, I fully expect that trend to continue as Minnesota gets the win.

Vikings, 30-23


Cincinnati (2-3) @ New Orleans (2-3)

These two teams actually make for a pretty even matchup. Both teams are average in passing with a solid overall defense. New Orleans can run the football (ranked 10th with 136 rushing yards per game) while Cincinnati can stop the run (ranked 7th, allowing 99 ground yards per game).

I believe this will come down to whoever can get their passing offense going. Obviously the Bengals have the better quarterback and better receiving weapons... I'm going with the road team here.

Bengals, 30-24


Baltimore (3-2) @ NY Giants (4-1)

This is the other game I want to call the upset on (just a coincidence that they're both New York teams). The Giants are such a strange 4-1 team, as Daniel Jones is nothing special, yet Saquon Barkley basically puts the offense on his back. The defense is very solid against the pass (ranked 8th, allowing 194 yards per game through the air) but their weakness is on the ground - which is why they will lose this game (26th, allowing 131 yards per game)i

Lamar and these running backs will go over 150 total rushing yards pretty easily and end up winning the time of possession by a long shot. Daniel Jones won't be able to lead an impressive comeback two weeks in a row... right?

Ravens, 28-17

Tampa Bay (3-2) @ Pittsburgh (1-4)

Neither one of these teams is very good if we're being honest. The Bucs have a good defense, who should feast on rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett similar to how the Bills picked on him last week.

Tampa should win this one on the ground. They only rank 31st in rushing yards, but Leonard Fournette and rookie Rachaad White should be more than capable of ripping off big runs and 120+ combined rushing yards against this 23rd ranked run defense.

Bucs, 31-13


Carolina (1-4) @ LA Rams (2-3)

Another battle of disappointing teams, this one should play out similar to the Bucs/Steelers:

Baker Mayfield will have 4+ turnovers and the 32nd rushing offense of the Rams should be given a chance - mostly because a few mistakes from the turnover-prone Matthew Stafford could easily keep Carolina hanging around.

Rams, 24-17


Arizona (2-3) @ Seattle (2-3)

A low scoring divisional matchup is what I see here. Kyler Murray hasn't been playing his best football this year - but Geno Smith has!

It's very easy to see a few early Arizona mistakes costing them the field position battle, allowing the Seahawks to get rookie Ken Walker going on the ground, while Geno continues to feed Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf with safe throws through the air.

Seahawks, 20-14


Buffalo (4-1) @ Kansas City (4-1)

In what could very well be the AFC Championship matchup, Buffalo has plenty of momentum coming in on a two game winning streak. Three of their four wins have come by at least 21 points. Despite some of their receivers not being fully healthy, Josh Allen continues to throw (and run) for touchdowns.
Kansas City had an exciting win over the Raiders on Monday night. They are a great team in their own right, but they simply (with the exception of Travis Kelce, of course).

Bills, 33-30

Dallas (4-1) @ Philadelphia (5-0)

Sunday night football will be a good one! We will see an undefeated streak come to an end either way. The Eagles will lose their first game of the season, or Cooper Rush will lose his first game ever as a starter.

No doubt Dak Prescott is the better quarterback than Rush, but something has felt different about this offense since the backup took over. They are much more balanced and aren't trying to force a big game through the air.

Micah Parsons is incredible and this defense is dangerous...

The Eagles are winning this game, I'm sorry. It will definitely be a close game, but I believe more in Jalen Hurts leading Philly against the 12th ranked defense at home than I do Cooper Rush leading his unit against the 4th ranked defense on the road.

It will be a fun game either way.

Eagles, 27-20


Denver (2-3) @ LA Chargers (2-3)

This game isn't going to be close. The Chargers are finding their stride as Herbert continues to recover from his rib injury. They are on a two game winning streak and have scored 30+ in each one.

Denver has been a disappointing mess. Between terrible play from Russell Wilson, to poor coaching from Nathaniel Hackett, to injuries - this is just not the Broncos' year.

Many are questioning why Denver hasn't been moved from back to back primetime games and I'm in on that as well.

Being on the road in primetime against a divisional rival who is getting hot... this one will be ugly and is my Lock of the Week.

Chargers, 33-6


BYE WEEKS:

Tennessee Titans (3-2)

Houston Texans (1-3-1)

Detroit Lions (1-4)

Las Vegas Raiders (1-4)

Fantasy Starts:

- QB Kirk Cousins, Vikings: @ Dolphins

Miami has a very weak pass defense and Kirk Cousins is capable of exploding stats wise at any given time. In my own personal league, I'm starting Cousins over Kyler Murray this week for sure.


- RB Jeff Wilson Jr., 49ers: @ Falcons

The game script will give Wilson carries. I expect to see multiple Atlanta turnovers and San Francisco in full control of this game. Jeff Wilson will have plenty of rushing opportunities and will take full advantage this week.

nfl-week-6-spoilers

Fantasy Sits:

- WR Garrett Wilson, Jets: @ Packers

Zach Wilson isn't as good of a passer as Joe Flacco at this point (big oof, I know) and this offense is meeting its potential when Breece Hall gets 20-25+ touches in a game. Garrett Wilson won't be seeing the same targets as Flacco gave him, so he's definitely not worth the start this week.


- WR Jerry Jeudy, Broncos: @ Chargers

I simply trust the Denver offense right now. Until they finally score a respectable amount of points (23 points two weeks ago is the only time they put up over 16), I only start any Bronco not named Courtland Sutton (and the Denver defense of course).

Game of the Week:

Bills 33, Chiefs 30


Lock of the Week:

Chargers 33, Broncos 6


Upset of the Week:

Seahawks 20, Cardinals 14


Player of the Week:

RB Austin Ekeler, Chargers: vs Broncos

18 rushes 165 yds 2 td, 5 rec 31 yds


Favorite point spread:

Vikings (-3.0) @ Dolphins
