Heading into Fantasy Football Week 6 action, wide receiver Quincy Enunwa of the New York Jets should be started against the Arizona Cardinals.

As the New York Jets prepare for the Arizona Cardinals in their Week 6 matchup on Monday Night Football, it will be an interesting game for wide receiver Quincy Enunwa. With wide receiver Eric Decker out for the season due to a torn rotator cuff injury, this could be a breakout game for him. Fantasy football owners should consider starting Enunwa since he could be the only shot on offense the Jets have to win.

Enunwa is the perfect case of a utility player for the Jets. He’s able to block efficiently, play as a tight end, and of course, line up as a wide receiver. He has good speed, solid route-running techniques, and could very well be an x-factor in this matchup.

The defense of the Cardinals is a tough and aggressive one capable of stopping the run. The offense of the Jets might be one-dimensional in this matchup which means that fantasy owners that have Enunwa might want to trust him in their FLEX position.

Considering Enunwa hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 1 means that the Jets might incorporate him heavily in this matchup. The Jets are in another must-win situation and can’t afford to risk anything to earn a fourth consecutive loss.

That’s why it’s expected they’ll put Enunwa in through various spots on offense. Expect to see him put up a valiant effort and even get a touchdown or two against the Cardinals.

So far this season, Enunwa has totaled 294 receiving yards, 27 receptions, and just one touchdown. Now is the time for the Jets to put him in a position to leave Arizona victorious.

It won’t be easy but Enunwa has the ability to take the top off of defenses as the Jets should be able to simplify things to get him contributing right off the bat.

Since the Jets can’t afford to lose any more games and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick playing to keep his starting job, Enunwa should be able to rise to the occasion.
