The NFL wraps up Week 6 Sunday with the Los Angeles Chargers hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football. Both teams are stumbling along, sitting in third place in their respective divisions, two games back of first place. The Chargers are 2-3 and back of 4-1 Kansas City. The Steelers are 1-4 and back of 3-2 Baltimore.
The injury reports offer plenty of pertinent news. The Chargers have placed center Mike Pouncey on injured reserve, while welcoming Hunter Henry back to practice. Meanwhile, Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph returned to practice on Wednesday but seems unlikely to play due to his concussion.
The Chargers are 6.5-point favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook in a game that really is must-win for both teams. The Chargers were expected to push the Chiefs in the AFC West, and can’t afford to fall further back. The Steelers were expected to be AFC North contenders, but losing Ben Roethlisberger sunk expectations.
There will be plenty of fantasy implications in this late matchup. We’re not expecting many game-time decisions on either side, so you should be safe setting your lineups. Mike Williams was a question mark heading into last week, but made it through alright and should be a health upgrade in Week 6.
We’ll be tracking everything for the game, from odds to fantasy. Check back here throughout for everything that goes down in this huge matchup for both teams.
