The NFL is back for Week 6 of the 2020 regular season, and we are looking at a full schedule for the week. Covid-19 resulted in some rescheduling last week, but other than moving Thursday Night Football to Monday, Week 6 is slated to go down on schedule.
We have a lopsided Sunday schedule with nine games at 1 p.m. ET and only two at 4:05/4:25 p.m. The early slate is highlighted by a fun Browns-Steelers rivalry matchup. Cleveland hasn’t won in Pittsburgh in a long time, and is suddenly surging. The late slate is highlighted by Packers-Bucs in a potential playoff preview.
We have a few big names still in question as of Sunday morning. Notably, D.J. Chark is questionable and sounds like a game-day morning decision. The Jaguars are in the 1 p.m. slot, so at least we’ll know his status before all the games get underway.
We’ll be keeping an eye out for news on pertinent players and figuring out last minute roster decisions. That means not only who is not playing this week, but who is playing but might not be the best start in your Week 6 fantasy football lineup. We’ll provide updates on injuries, key start/sit decisions, and more leading up to 1 p.m. kickoffs.
