FanDuel NFL Week 6 picks and lineup advice: Wide Receiver

Similar to running back, there are plenty of strong wide receiver options this week. Tyreek Hill ($8700) gets an extremely favorable matchup against a Washington secondary and makes for the perfect stack with Patrick Mahomes this week.

Cooper Kupp ($8200) got off to a strong start but has not had a huge game since Week 3. However, the targets are still there each and every game, with his target count in the double digits week in and week out. I like his chances of having a huge game against a below-average Giants secondary.

Mike Williams ($8000) is the current number one receiver in fantasy and is seeing both high quantity and quality of targets each and every week. I like him to continue this trend against a weak Baltimore secondary in what projects to be a shootout.

There are plenty of cheaper options this week with similar upside to the top picks, and Keenan Allen ($7100) is one of my favorites. I want as many pieces of this Chargers offense as possible in this game and Allen provides a high floor with high upside if he is able to find the end zone.

Michael Pittman Jr. ($5800) had a nice game last week and now gets to face a soft Houston secondary. $5800 is just far too cheap for a player with his talent and target share. While usually there are a few dirt-cheap plays that I love to throw into my flex and place high in a tournament, none of those plays really jump out at me this week, so I feel much more comfortable paying up for players.
