2023 Fantasy Football Week 15 Recap

Welcome to the 2023 Fantasy Football Week 6 Recap.

This week had a little bit of everything. We saw several top dogs get upset (Eagles, 49ers), several top teams roll (Dolphins, Lions), and capped it off with a Bills-Giants game that literally came down to the last second and one yard to decide the game.

We are entering a crucial part of the season where the playoff picture will slowly start to come into focus. It's important to remain active with waivers and trades during this stretch to not only win now but to build a team that can compete down the stretch and into the fantasy playoffs.

With all that said, let’s get to the 2023 Fantasy Football Week 6 Recap.

Chiefs 19 - Broncos 8

Travis Kelce (9-124) put on a show, hauling in all nine of his targets for 124 yards. Rashee Rice (4-72) has entered the flex conversation in PPR leagues through the bye weeks, as he’s put up double-digit points in three of the last four games.

Courtland Sutton (4-46-1) was able to save his day with a touchdown, but the Broncos offense was otherwise unproductive for fantasy. Russell Wilson (13/22-95-1-1, 4-31) had his worst game of the season but remains in the QB2 mix in superflex leagues.

Ravens 24 - Titans 16

Lamar Jackson (21/30-223-1-1, 13-62) scrambled for 62 yards on the ground, boosting his numbers up enough to finish with his fourth top-12 QB performance in six weeks. Gus Edwards (16-41, 1-12) appears to have the edge over Justice Hill (8-35, 3-0) for the RB1 job.

Derrick Henry (12-97-1, 2-16) had his most efficient game of the season, going over eight yards per carry against a tough Baltimore defense. Malik Willis (4/5-74, 3-17) was productive in his first reps of the season, taking over after Ryan Tannehill (8/16-76-0-1) left the game with an ankle injury.

Commanders 24 - Falcons 16

Sam Howell (14/23-151-3) overcame five Falcons sacks, tossing three touchdown passes in a huge win for the Commanders that brings them back to .500 on the season. Brian Robinson Jr (10-31, 2-25-1) and Antonio Gibson (3-15, 1-1-1) struggled to find room to run but saved their days with a receiving TD each.

Not only did Drake London (9-125) go over 100 receiving yards for the first time this year, but Kyle Pitts (4-43-1) also hauled in his first TD of the season. Desmond Ridder (28/47-307-2-3, 2-18) broke 300 yards passing but had several costly interceptions down the stretch.

Vikings 19 - Bears 13

T.J. Hockenson (6-50) paced the Vikings in receptions and yards in their first game without Justin Jefferson, but it was Jordan Addison (3-28-1) who hauled in Kirk Cousins (21/31-181-1) lone TD pass. Alexander Mattison (18-44, 4-28) is still the clear lead back.

DJ Moore (5-51) and Cole Kmet (2-9) came crashing back down to earth in a game where Justin Fields (6/10-58-0-1, 8-46) struggled mightily before leaving with a thumb injury to his throwing hand. Tyson Bagent (6/10-58-0-1, 2-4-1) looked competent in the few reps he took in relief of Field.

Bengals 17 - Seahawks 13

Tee Higgins (2-20) was active but Tyler Boyd (7-38-1) operated as the second option in the Bengals passing attack, bringing in all seven of his targets for 38 yards and a score. Joe Mixon (12-38, 3-24) had his worst game of the season but still got 15 touches and is a solid RB2.

Kenneth Walker (19-62-1, 3-27) continues to be one of the biggest draft day values, finding the end zone while racking up 89 total yards. Tyler Lockett (6-94) led the team in receiving, putting up his highest yardage total of the year.

Browns 19 - 49ers 17

Amari Cooper (4-108) continues to be QB-proof, anchoring the passing attack with 108 receiving yards as P.J. Walker (18/34-192-0-2) led the Browns to a surprising victory over the 49ers. Jerome Ford (17-84, 2-7) started slow but finished with a respectable stat line.

Brock Purdy (12/27-125-1-1) looked like a seventh-round pick for the first time in his young career. Christian McCaffrey (11-43, 3-9-1) and Deebo Samuel (0-0) both left the game with injuries, and it would completely change the 49ers offense if they are forced to miss time.

Dolphins 42 - Panthers 21

Raheem Mostert (17-115-2, 3-17-1) scored three TDs as the Dolphins offense put on another clinic against Carolina. Tyreek Hill (6-163-1) and Jaylen Waddle (7-51-1) weren’t left out of the fun either, as both found the end zone in an easy victory.

Adam Thielen (11-115-1) had another monster game and is a locked-in top-24 WR moving forward. Chuba Hubbard (19-88-1, 1-2) looked explosive in his first start of the season, and you have to wonder when the whispers of him taking the starting job from Miles Sanders will begin to get louder.

Jaguars 37 - Colts 20 

Travis Etienne (18-55-2, 3-28) found the end zone twice while Christian Kirk (3-49-1) hauled in a receiving TD in the Jag's convincing victory over the Colts. Trevor Lawrence hurt his knee in this one, and their quick turnaround on Thursday makes him a risky play.

Zack Moss (7-21-1, 6-38) poached a TD and continued to split work evenly with Jonathan Taylor (8-19, 5-46). Michael Pittman Jr. (9-109) was the biggest beneficiary of Gardner Minshew (33/55-329-1-1) being called on to throw 55 times in a game they trailed most of the way.

Texans 20 - Saints 13

C.J. Stroud (13/27-199-2-1) threw the first interception of his young career but ultimately did just enough to secure the Texans victory. Devin Singletary (12-58, 1-4) looked more effective in the same amount of touches as Dameon Pierce (13-34), and could start to carve out a bigger role.

Chris Olave (7-96) bounced back and showed his foot injury last week was no big deal, turning 10 targets into seven catches for 96 yards. Kendre Miller (2-(-1), 1-13) was a non-factor after going for 90 yards last week, as Alvin Kamara (19-68, 7-36) was the clear focal point of the offense.

Raiders 21 - Patriots 17

Jakobi Meyers’ (5-61-1) hot start raged on in the Raiders win on Sunday as he brought in the team's lone TD through the air. Jimmy Garoppolo (14/22-162-1-1) left the game and was taken to the hospital, leaving his status for next week up in the air.

Mac Jones (24/33-200-0-1) feels like he’s getting close to the end of his time as a starter in New England as the Patriots dropped to 1-5 on the season. Kendrick Bourne (10-89) is a name to monitor in deeper leagues, as he’s drawn at least five targets in every game but one this season.

Rams 26 - Cardinals 9

Kyren Williams (20-158-1) continues to prove me wrong, breaking off another monster performance that saw him go over 150 yards with a score. Cooper Kupp (7-148-1) led the way for the WRs, but Puka Nacua (4-26) was still involved with seven targets.

Emari Demarcado (2-11, 1-6) was the hot name on the waiver wire this week, but it was Keaontay Ingram (10-40, 2-11) and Damien Williams (8-36, 1-8) that saw the bulk of the work out of the Cardinals backfield in James Conner’s absence.

Jets 20 - Eagles 14

In the shocker of the day, the Zach Wilson (19/33-186, 4-15) led Jets rallied late to take down the Eagles. Breece Hall (12-39, 5-54) wasn’t as effective this week against a stout defense, but still saw the bulk of the work and is a top-5 RB the rest of the way.

Despite Jalen Hurts (28/45-280-1-3) throwing an uncharacteristic three interceptions, A.J. Brown (7-131) had a monster game, going over 125 receiving yards for the fourth game in a row. D’Andre Swift (10-18, 8-40-1) was heavily used in the passing game, showcasing his high floor in this offense despite an off-game on the ground.

Lions 20 - Buccaneers 6

Jared Goff (30/44-353-2) put the Lions offense on his back, leaning heavily on Amon-Ra St. Brown (12-124-1) in an offensive explosion that saw him throw for 353 yards and two TDs. David Montgomery (6-14, 1-19) left the game with an injury, putting a damper on what has been an incredible start to the season for him.

Rachaad White (7-26, 3-12) saw a season-low 10 touches and looks like more of a boom/bust flex play than the RB2 he was drafted to be in a lot of leagues. Chris Godwin (6-77) is starting to look more like himself these past two weeks after getting off to a slow start to the year.

Bills 14 - Giants 9

Stefon Diggs (10-100) hauled in 10 of his 16 targets for 100 yards, leading the way in a tight-fought victory that came down to one yard. James Cook (14-71) was efficient with his touches, while Latvius Murray (12-45) picked up double-digit carries after Damien Harris (1-1) left the game with a scary injury.

The Giants offense looked much better than expected with Tyrod Taylor (24/36-200, 5-24) under center, which may say more about Daniel Jones than anything. Saquon Barkley (24-93, 4-5) handled a large workload in his return, while Wan’Dale Robinson (8-62) brought in all eight of his targets in another strong performance.
