Top QBs To Start in Week 6

Justin Fields, Chicago Bears

What happened to Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears offense between Week 3 and Week 4? After failing to crack the top-12 QBs in fantasy over the first three weeks of the season, Fields has exploded over the previous two games for fantasy finishes of QB3 and QB1.

The encouraging part about all of this for fantasy managers is that Fields is doing this without really utilizing his rushing ability. He’s getting it done primarily as a passer. And now, he gets a matchup in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings defense that is struggling to slow down opposing offenses this season.

Brock Purdy, San Francisco 49ers

It’s time to start giving Brock Purdy credit for what he’s doing on the football field this season. After shredding the vaunted Dallas Cowboys defense on Sunday Night Football, Purdy now has to be viewed as an incredibly consistent fantasy QB.

With the amount of playmakers that he has at his disposal, he’s a solid low-end QB1/high-end QB2 every single week moving forward. You know exactly what you’re going to get. That has value in fantasy football.
