The Top RBs To Start in Week 6

James Cook, Buffalo Bills

Analysis by Jason Katz | Fantasy managers are undoubtedly disappointed in James Cook’s performance across the pond last week. The Buffalo Bills came out flat, and their running game just couldn’t get going. After four straight weeks of hitting double-digit fantasy points, Cook posted 5.1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

While Cook will never possess an elite ceiling due to the involvement of Damien Harris and Latavius Murray, he should be a strong RB2 most of the time.

This is a great bounce-back spot for the talented lead runner against a New York Giants defense allowing 26.6 PPG to running backs, the sixth-most in the league. The Giants are allowing YPC ypc and 1.4 touchdowns per game to RBs.

With the Bills being heavy home favorites, the running game is unlikely to get game-scripted out. Cook should remain plenty involved and return to being a high RB2 in Week 6.

Austin Ekeler, Los Angeles Chargers

Analysis by Kyle Soppe | The one time we saw him this season was a 20-touch, 24.4-point effort against the Miami Dolphins, and he was replaced by RB Joshua Kelley (Weeks 2-4: 2.8 yards per carry).

Much like the situation for the Packers or Giants, the starting running back missed time and returned positioned to see an increase in workload due to the failures of his replacement.

It’s obviously not a soft landing spot for Ekeler to return after a month off, but there should be zero hesitation about plugging him in.
