Use these player salaries as context for building your week 6 OwnersBox lineups. With salaries being set each Monday, they cannot be changed. Injuries and depth chart movement has impacted the value of these players salary significantly.
- Taylor Heinicke is a great value pick this week against the Chiefs. This Kansas City defense has been horrible through 5 weeks and Heinicke will continue the onslaught. In the 3 weeks before he played the Saints last week, he had 8 touchdowns in his 3 starts. Things just weren’t going his way against the Saints but in what should be a shootout he’ll get back to form this week
- If there’s a top end quarterback to fade this week it’s Kyler Murray. I could easily see the Browns controlling the clock and dominating the Cardinals on the ground, keeping Murray off the field. If you want to spend big on QB, take Mahomes or Allen for essentially the same price in a couple games that should be shootouts.
- To everyone’s surprise, Jalen Hurts has been the most consistent QB through 5 weeks. He’s now the only guy left in the NFL to finish as a top 12 player at his position every single week. That includes Mahomes, Kelce and Henry. The Eagles now get a very pass friendly matchup against the Bucs, who’ve allowed the 23rd most fantasy points to QBs. Expect Hurts to feast yet again.
