NFL Week 6 Thursday Night Football Fantasy Outlook

Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

Josh Collacchi takes a look at Thursday Night Football's fantasy implications.

The common assumption is that many players do not perform up to par on Thursday night games. While watching the games, it seems washed down and ill-prepared. But as far as fantasy football goes, there are still some good options for each Thursday night. Last week Josh Gordon and the Browns defense were huge for fantasy owners.

This week the dreadful New York Giants face off against the Chicago Bears, and there are many fantasy football players who have Bears and Giants. So this week's Thursday Night Football will mean a lot more to people.

Here is a look at Thursday's Fantasy Football outlook:

Player Rank Projections
Jay Cutler 4 280 yards and 3 TD
Eli Manning 4 340 yards and 3 TD with 3 INT
Matt Forte 5 135 yards, 6 catches 60 yards
Da'Rel Scott 3 45 yards and 35 yards receiving 1 TD
Brandon Marshal 4 9 catches 80 yards and 1 TD
Victor Cruz 5 5 catches 70 yards and 1 TD
Alshon Jeffery 2 8 catches 90 yards 1 TD
Hakeem Nicks 4 6 catches 95 yards
Martellus Bennett 4 4 catches 70 yards 1 TD
Brandon Myers 3 4 catches 50 yards and 1 TD
Robbie Gould 4 2 FG and 4 XP
Josh Brown 2 3 XP
Bears Defense/Special Teams 5 21 points allowed, 375 yards allowed, 6 sacks and 3 INT, 1 TD
Giants Defense/Special Teams 2 34 points allowed, 460 yards allowed, 2 sacks and a fumble recovery
