Get your New Orleans Saints pass-catchers into fantasy football and DFS lineups for Week 6. The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without cornerback Jalen Ramsey once again due to his back injury. He was questionable and viewed as making progress, but he will sit again.

This bodes well for Michael Thomas and if you’re desperate enough to start Ted Ginn, there’s some value there. Without a No. 1 cornerback, the Jaguars defense remains hobbled. It’s still good enough they they could give Teddy Bridgewater trouble, so he’s not a great starting option on his own. Michael Thomas is going to be productive regardless of who is starting at cornerback, but removing Ramsey from the equation is a big help for his fantasy owners.

Last week, the Jaguars defense gave up 91 receiving yards to D.J. Moore, but contained Curtis Samuel to just 19 yards. The week prior, Emmanuel Sanders had 104 yards, Courtland Sutton had 62 yards and two touchdowns, and DaeSean Hamilton 57 yards.

Michael Thomas is always must-start. Ted Ginn is a low end flex option, but an intriguing option in deeper leagues.
