Top WRs To Start in Week 6

DJ Moore, Chicago Bears

Fantasy managers who drafted Moore and then panicked on him too early by either dropping him or trading him away have to be kicking themselves right now.

Over the past two weeks, Moore has reeled in 16 receptions for 361 yards and four touchdowns! He’s been on fire as this offense has started to bounce back and it’s showing no signs of slowing down going into Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings.

The Vikings have been gashed by opposing WRs so far this season and we could see a big performance from Moore yet again. He’s a borderline WR1 for this matchup and he belongs in your starting lineups.

Christian Kirk, Jacksonville Jaguars

Did you know that Christian Kirk has only one game this season where he’s finished with less than 50 receiving yards? The Week 1 performance against the Indianapolis Colts, where he reeled in just one reception for nine yards, made fantasy managers panic in a big way, but he’s been stellar since then.

Kirk’s been on fire recently, and it looks like this Jaguars’ offense might have finally turned a corner. He’s seen 20 targets over the previous two games, and the Colts are allowing a shocking 262.4 passing yards per game. Start him with confidence.
