Just like everyone predicted in Week 5, Washington Commanders wide receiver Dyami Brown was the breakout star of the week, catching two passes for 105 yards and two touchdowns.

Brown, a third-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, stepped up in a big way for Washington with receiver Jahan Dotson (hamstring) out of the lineup. Dotson is expected to miss tonight's game against the Chicago Bears, but the Commanders did get a positive update on Brown, who is questionable with a groin injury.

It appears the second-year receiver is expected to play, and he will likely line up in three receiver sets alongside Curtis Samuel and Terry McLaurin.

It's unlikely that Brown produces the same performance he had last week, but bettors may want to consider sprinkling a little something on him to score in Week 6. Brown currently has +600 odds at PointsBet to find the end zone against the Bears.

Obviously, we have a small sample size with Brown getting significant usage this season, but Dotson had four touchdowns in four games before missing the Week 5 clash with the Tennessee Titans. Carson Wentz has thrown for 10 scores this season, and it's possible that Brown can benefit once again from playing some of Dotson's role in the offense.

Last season as a rookie, Brown caught just 12 passes for 165 yards in 15 games (six starts). He has a chance to earn more snaps with a strong showing tonight, and with other pass catchers (Dotson, Logan Thomas) out for the Commanders, Brown is a sneaky prop target and fantasy play in Week 6.

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
