Week 6 of the fantasy season is here, and there are plenty of exploitable matchups. Find out which players have the best matchups this week.
Finding and playing a favorable matchup in fantasy football can lead to wins on Sundays. It’s not all paper though, as some teams just play unpredictably — like everything regarding NFL football. For this week, there are plenty of exploitable matchups to look for. Let’s get into it!
Week 6’s most exploitable fantasy football matchups
5. Melvin Gordon, RB, Denver Broncos (vs. LAC)
Melvin Gordon looked like the Broncos’ starter after the loss of Javonte Williams. Even with Mike Boone playing plenty of snaps, Gordon still out-touched him 18-10. Even with the addition of Latavius Murray, Gordon has been involved even with Williams healthy and there’s no reason to believe he’ll be relegated to the bench. He looked like a solid fantasy option who could be a relevant starter for the rest of the season, barring injury.
This week, Gordon gets a matchup that every running back this year dreams of having in the Los Angeles Chargers. They give up the most fantasy points per game to running backs and just gave up 213 yards on the ground to Cleveland last week. With the Broncos’ passing attack struggling badly, it may be wise to try and beat Los Angeles on the ground. Gordon is an easy RB2 this week.
