Sam Darnold, Jaron Brown, and Ricky Seals-Jones were among the productive Week 6 players that weren’t rostered by many.

With Week 6 now in the books, it’s once again time to look at the fantasy stars for the week who were likely unowned.

In order to be eligible for the list, the player must have been owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN fantasy football leagues. Every week, one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end are highlighted.

1

Quarterback - Sam Darnold, Jets (338 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, 1 interception, 1 rushing yard)

In his first appearance since Week 1 due to a bout with mononucleosis, Darnold played a significant role in the Jets getting their first win on Sunday. His 338 yards passing were just three shies of his career-high of 341.

2

Running back - Chase Edmonds, Cardinals (34 rushing yards, 2 receptions, 33 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown)

This is the second straight week that Edmonds has made the list as he has become a larger part of the Arizona offense. After putting up 84 total yards and no touchdowns in the team’s first four games, he has 153 total yards and two touchdowns in the most recent two games.
