Pick: Chiefs 30, Texans 27
250 pass yards, 2 pass TDCassel has not completed more than 16 passes in a game this season and has thrown just four touchdown passes, but he has a nice matchup this week against a Houston defense that is last in the league in pass defense and has allowed 11 touchdowns through the air.
3 rec, 35 rec yards, 65 rush yards, 1 rush TDCharles saw roughly two-thirds of the carries for the Chiefs last week. Charles should always remain in your lineup given his home run ability.
2 rec, 15 rec yards, 55 rush yardsJones picked up 19 yards last week and faces a stiff Texans run defense in Week 6, so use another option if available.
4 rec, 50 yards, 1 TDBowe's production has been minimal up to this point, but the Chiefs face a very vulnerable Texans secondary in Week 6 and should look to throw a bit more. Despite catching just two passes last week, Bowe is a decent option this week.
4 rec, 50 yardsChambers has caught just seven passes in four games this season, but he has a nice matchup this week against the Texans. Chambers will have some value in deeper leagues.
2 rec, 40 yardsMcCluster has done almost nothing receiving-wise in three of his four games, but he has made a big impact in the return game.
6 rec, 60 yards, 1 TDMoeaki has recorded either 50 yards or a touchdown in each game this season, so even though tight end is a deep position, Moeaki is shooting up the rankings.
3 PATs, 3 FGsSuccop has made seven field goals, but none have come from over 50 yards. Look for another option this week if you need a kicker.
1 sack, 1 INTThe Texans can really move the ball through the air and put up points on cue, so avoid using the Chiefs defense this week.
215 pass yards, 2 pass TD, 1 INTThe Chiefs are 25th in the league against the pass, so Schaub should be able to get back on track this week after a rough Week 5 outing.
3 rec, 25 rec yards, 80 rush yards, 1 rush TDThe Giants dominated the Texans last week, and Foster finished the game with just 27 total yards. He has a tough matchup this week, but that is no reason to sit the league's top rusher.
7 rec, 100 yards, 2 TDJohnson was still a bit sore following last week's game, but he should not miss any more action going forward.
5 rec, 50 yardsWalter got off to a fast start, but aside from his 144-yard performance in Week 2, he has not recorded more than 35 receiving yards in a game.
2 rec, 20 yardsJones did not play last week and is questionable for Week 6. Don't expect him to make a significant impact even if he suits up.
2 rec, 20 yardsDaniels has not caught more than three passes in a game this season, so do not be afraid to start another tight end that sees more action in the passing game.
3 PATs, 2 FGsRackers has been quiet the last couple weeks, but he still deserves a start in most formats in the high-powered Houston offense.
2 sacks, 1 FumbleHouston's defense gives up a lot of passing yards and a lot points, so avoid using them for the time being. Perhaps the return of Brian Cushing helps them improve going forward.
