Watch Now: Week 6 Start Of The Week: Running Backs (2:52)

Welcome to the wildly wonderful Week 6 where Le'Veon Bell has been released by the Jets, there was no Thursday Night Football and we have more potential COVID scares with the Falcons and Colts, although it now looks like Alexander Mattison will have the Vikings backfield to himself because that Atlanta-Minnesota game is reportedly good to go. Nonetheless, we have four teams on a bye, which means we have lineup decisions to make.

I have two maybe obvious running backs I love this week for both season-long and DFS: Myles Gaskin and David Montgomery. Bell decided to sign with the Chiefs, so Gaskin's job in Miami is safe. Gaskin is coming off a game with 21 touches, 91 total yards and a touchdown against a tough 49ers defense. This week Gaskin faces the Jets, a defense that has allowed eight total TD to running backs this season. Montgomery has not run efficiently in recent weeks, but he does have 14 targets over the last two games since Tarik Cohen has gone down. Montgomery gets the Panthers, who are allowing 5.1 yards per carry to running backs and just lost defensive tackle Kawann Short. I like both Gaskin and Montgomery as high-end RB2 options in Week 6.

Below you'll find the rest of my thoughts on each game this week, with injuries, stats and more on every Fantasy relevant player.
