2023 College Football Week 6 Streamers

2023 College Football Week 6 Streamers

I'm positive that college fantasy football players are going to need streamers in Week 6 this 2023 season. Byes are rampant this week throughout the college football landscape! There are 96 teams that are playing this week that you could be using players from in a college fantasy football league. While that is certainly still a large number, that means that there are 37 teams on bye this week!

To put that perspective, that would be equivalent to eight NFL teams on a bye in the same week. The most teams that are actually on a bye in any single week this season is six in Weeks 7 and 13.

When you look at your roster and see all your stars on bye, don't be discouraged. Remember, everyone else is dealing with them this week. Plus, you have knowledge of the college football weekly streamers article on Fantasy Six Pack!

Brady Cook, QB, Missouri Tigers

Congratulations to Brady Cook for setting an SEC conference record this past week.

 

For fantasy purposes, the record actually means very little. Many leagues penalize for turnovers, but that is typically only a point or two. What has been encouraging for Cook is that the 5-0 Missouri Tigers seem to be leaning on Cook's efficient passing more than ever. The past three weeks, Cook has thrown for 356, 341, and 395 yards! Of course, his touchdown to interception is perfect with eight touchdowns to no interceptions.

This week, the Tigers are going to take on LSU in SEC conference play. Typically, when you see a team like LSU on the schedule that is a team you want to avoid. However, LSU's defense has struggled mightily this season in games against teams of similar ability. They surrendered 45 points to Florida State in the first week of the season. Then, against three SEC foes they've given up 94 points. This should be a high-scoring game where Cook routinely targets star wideout Luther Burden.

Jacquez Stuart, RB, Toledo Rockets

Admittedly, this isn't a great week for running back streamers. Last week, I recommended a Toledo running back in Peny Boone. He delivered 113 rushing yards but didn't reach the end zone. I'm going back to the well though with another Toledo back this week.

Jacquez Stuart had missed the previous two games with an injury. He returned last week with 79 rushing yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. He is definitely the more explosive of the two Toledo backs, and I expect plenty of explosive plays against Massachusetts this week.

Massachusetts have lost their last five games this season, but have actually been decent on offense.  The team is averaging 26.5 points per game offensively which is good for 85th among all Division 1 football teams. The defense though is allowing 39.2 points per game which is ranked 132nd. I don't think Toledo will struggle with scoring points and Stuart should be a beneficiary of that.

Andrew Armstrong, WR, Arkansas Razorbacks

Andrew Armstrong has been remarkably consistent as far as fantasy production is concerned. He has scored between 13.6 and 18.8 PPR fantasy points in all five games he has played this season. In a week with this many byes, that total is going to be usable, but I think this week may be his highest output yet.

Unfortunately, his output is also tied to the major injury that tight end Luke Hasz suffered. Hasz was looking like an early difference-maker at the tight end as a true freshman. Sadly, this past week his season came to what is likely an early end.

While I don't expect all of Hasz's production to funnel to Armstrong, I do think he will be the primary beneficiary of the injury in this week's game against Ole Miss. Ole Miss was victorious last week over LSU, but still gave up 49 points and over 400 passing yards in the process. I suspect this week's game will be a high-scoring contest as well.

Mitchell Evans, TE, Notre Dame Fighting Irish

One of my personal rules is to not recommend the same player as earlier. However, the best option here would be last week's recommendation of Middle Tennessee tight end Holden Willis again. He delivered last week with six receptions for 70 yards. As that game was on Thursday evening, I could watch it in its entirety. Willis did exactly as I mentioned in last week's article and played primarily wide receiver.

The actual recommendation for this week is going to be Mitchell Evans from Notre Dame. There was some optimism for Evans in college fantasy football going into the season. But his ownership percentage is now under 15% after a slow first few weeks of the season.

In the first three games of the season, Notre Dame won their three games by a combined score of 143-30. Evans wasn't heavily utilized in those blowouts. The past two games have been extremely competitive contests against Ohio State and Duke. In those two games, Evans has caught 13 passes for 209 yards. This week's game should be competitive again versus Louisville which bodes well for Evans.

Purdue Boilermakers

Some of the most popular jokes amongst college football fans in the last few years have been at the expense of the Iowa offense. The offense has struggled mightily since the shortened 2020 season. In 2021, the team averaged just 23.4 points per game. Last season, that number actually dipped to 17.7 points per game. Iowa fans wanted changes to the offense.

There was a change, but it wasn't the change they hoped for. In the offseason, offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz had his contract rewritten with incentives for averaging at least 25 points scored per week. At this point, the team is averaging just 22.2 points per game which ranks 101st in all of college football.

Purdue's defense hasn't been spectacular giving up almost 30 points per game. I'm not expecting that it will matter though. Earlier this week, Iowa lost their starting quarterback, Cade McNamara, for the remainder of the season with a knee injury. The Hawkeyes will turn to new quarterback Deacon Hill this week for his first career start.
