Fantasy Relevant Stats for Week 6
NFL 2019 Statistically Speaking Fantasy Relevant Stats for Week 6
I wish I could say that things are becoming much clearer, but with Mike Evans having zero receptions, zero yards and zero fantasy points while Will Fuller had 16 targets, 14 receptions for 217 yards, three touchdowns and 53.7 PPR fantasy points…I cannot. It’s a mad…mad…mad fantasy world out there and all we can do is hope that some of that madness lands our way.
In the meantime we can look at the stats and see what is most likely to happen. So week six here is what we got:
