We break down fantasy football projections for Week 6 Thursday Night Football, featuring the New York Giants and Chicago Bears.

Week 6 is upon us, and Thursday Night Football kicks things off. The first matchup of the week features the New York Giants and Chicago Bears, with the Giants still looking for their first win, and the Bears looking to snap a two-game losing streak. We've got fantasy projections for this matchup available courtesy of numberFire.

New York Giants

The Giants season been one big dumpster fire, as they are struggling to make anything happen on the offensive side of the ball. David Wilson has been arguably the biggest bust in fantasy football. After running in a touchdown last week, he suffered a neck injury that could cost him several weeks. Brandon Jacobs makes his return to the starting lineup in place of Wilson. Jacobs is not a great fantasy option, but if you are struggling with bye week issues, he has some modest potential.

The Giants passing game has been slightly better than the running game, but that is not saying much. Victor Cruz remains a consistent must-start, but Hakeem Nicks has been awful, and Rueben Randle has been inconsistent.

Chicago Bears

The Bears offense has found new life under Marc Trestman, adding fantasy value across the board. The passing game is of particular with the emergence of second-year wide receiver Alshon Jeffery. Brandon Marshall remains the No. 1 receiver, but Jeffery blew up last week against the New Orleans Saints with ten receptions for 218 yards and a touchdown. Given the Giants defensive struggles, Jeffery is a solid start.
