Entering Week 6 of the 2021 NFL season, fantasy football teams are either in need of a quarterback or happy with their current situation.
The NFL season is in full swing, and as we enter Week 6, fantasy teams are starting to establish themselves as powerhouses, or needing a facelift. In fact, some owners may be in sell mode, but for those looking to continue their push, some quarterbacks may be a find on the waiver wire.
Let us look at ten fantasy football sleepers at the QB position this weekend.
10 QB sleepers to target for fantasy football NFL 2021 Week 6
No. 10: Ben Roethlisberger vs Seattle
It has been an up and down season for Big Ben, as he has looked very old at times. This past weekend, he did a nice job against a very tough Denver Broncos defense, throwing for two touchdowns in front of the home crowd in a 27-19 victory. In Week 6, he and the Steelers host Seattle.
This could be a favorable matchup for the Steelers, as Russell Wilson is out, and the defense should be able to put the team in a position to score. That could lead to another multi-touchdown day for Roethlisberger, as he looks to get the team to the .500 mark after a tough start to the year.
No. 9: Justin Fields vs Green Bay
The Chicago Bears got a strong win on the road this past weekend, going into Allegiant Stadium and beating the 3-1 Las Vegas Raiders, 20-9. While Justin Fields did not put up a huge game in terms of the stat sheet, he played with incredible courage all game long, and in the end, was able to help his team to victory.
This weekend, he will head to Green Bay to take on the Packers in his first NFC North divisional game since being named the full-time starter. Fields is a guy who can make an impact on the ground, and through the air, and I believe that will be the case for him in this crucial matchup.
