Welcome to our Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings for Week 6 of the 2020 NFL regular season. In this week’s column, we discuss the breakout performances by Chase Claypool and Travis Fulgham. Is Claypool the NFL’s next mismatch nightmare? Is Fulgham Carson Wentz’s new No. 1 target? Let’s take a look.

Wide Receiver Outlook Week 6

Chase Claypool (WR19) is a freak. Nearly 240-pounds with 4.42-forty speed, the Notre Dame product toyed with Eagles defenders in Week 5 on his way to a Steelers rookie record four touchdowns. With Diontae Johnson once again injured, Claypool likely cemented himself as the team’s No. 2 target behind JuJu Smith Schuster, and could very well become option 1B.

Don’t expect 42-plus points out of Claypool. With that said, he’s a quality start against a Browns defense that allows the second-most fantasy points to WRs.

Don’t take Travis Fulgham‘s (WR30) ranking as a reason to sell the Eagles wideout moving forward. While his upside may not be to the level of Claypool’s, he’s still very intriguing. With that said, the fact of the matter is, he’s a question mark. With no more than three targets in any game this year prior to this past Sunday, and the returns of Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Dallas Goedert looming, Fulgham’s volume (13 targets, 10 receptions in Week 5) is bound to take a hit.

This coming week doesn’t help Fulgham’s case, as the Baltimore Ravens allow the ninth-fewest points to widouts. Only two WRs have hauled in more than five receptions against them this year.

Apparently when Brian O’Brien was shown the door, so was the philosophy of underutilizing Brandin Cooks (WR31). After being targeted five times or fewer in all but one game leading up this past Sunday, Cooks exploded in Week 5, hauling in eight of his team-high 12 targets for 161 yards and a touchdown.

While this type of volume may be a little too steep to ask for on a weekly basis, expect Cooks to remain highly involved in the Texans offense. He’ll have a great chance of building on his stellar play against a Titans defense, who allowed a total of 204 receiving yards and two touchdowns to their opponent’s top-two receivers last time they took the field.
