Fantasy football start/sit Week 6: What to do with Jarvis Landry

Miami’s PPR machine should be in top form in Week 6. We break down the fantasy implications.

NFL: Preseason-Atlanta Falcons at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Miami Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry is averaging nearly 11 targets per game this season. He’s turned them into 30 catches for 210 yards and a touchdown.

Facing off against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6, Landry will be counted on to keep the ball moving and the score close.

Fantasy impact: The Atlanta Falcons have allowed only five touchdown passes this year. On the plus side for Landry, DeVante Parker is hurt, which means Landry is going to continue to see a ton of looks going forward. Against a high-octane team like Atlanta, double-digit targets is pretty much a foregone conclusion.

What’s tough about Landry’s situation is that he really doesn’t rack up the yards or the touchdowns. So if Atlanta blankets him tightly as the team’s primary wideout, there may not be much for fantasy owners to take home on the scoreboard. Still, Landry has to be in starting lineups.

Recommendation: Start
