Fantasy Football Week 6 bold prediction No. 5: Kyle Pitts has his best day of the season

Patience was discussed with Austin Ekeler's situation, but owners of Kyle Pitts, particularly in keeper leagues, have needed more than patience. But last week against the Houston Texans, he finally posted decent numbers, catching seven passes for 87 yards.

This week against the Washington Commanders, where the Falcons will be at home, he will give owners the game they have been burning a hole on their roster with him for.

The Commanders have been one of the better defenses against tight ends, which is what makes this prediction bold. On the year, Washington has allowed just 135 total receiving yards and one touchdown to the tight end position.

In this game, Pitts nearly equals that.

Bold prediction: Kyle Pitts catches eight passes for 119 yards and 1 TD
