SportsLine Fantasy analyst Jacob Gibbs spends his days sifting through advanced stats for every player and every team in order to properly prepare you with the most important information for the upcoming week of football.
Gibbs' Fantasy football draft rankings were the eighth-most accurate in the nation across the 2018-20 seasons, per FantasyPros, and he is back with weekly Fantasy rankings and a DFS Helper for SportsLine users. In 2018, Gibbs predicted Patrick Mahomes' Fantasy explosion. In 2019, he projected big-time breakouts for Lamar Jackson and Chris Godwin, while also identifying Darren Waller as the top late-round tight end pick. Last season, Gibbs was one of the few analysts who ranked Davante Adams as Fantasy's WR1 entering the season, and he was all over the breakout seasons for Calvin Ridley and Antonio Gibson. Anyone who has followed Gibbs advice over the past three seasons has been well on their way to a league title.
Now, Gibbs has analyzed every angle for each Week 6 matchup and shared the 50 stats the stand out as the most noteworthy for this week's set of games.
One matchup Gibbs is especially excited for in Week 6: Cincinnati receiver Ja'Marr Chase against a Detroit defensive scheme that uses a lot of press coverage and has been the league's worst team at defending deep passing in 2021. Gibbs believes this matchup could yield yet another blow-up performance for the red-hot rookie, and he also loves the outlook for Tee Higgins against this secondary.
