Fantasy Football Week 6 bold prediction No. 6: C.J. Stroud's interception streak ends

Houston Texans rookie QB C.J. Stroud has been surprisingly terrific for the team and the biggest statistic that he has posted is that he has yet to throw an interception. In fact, he has now set an NFL record for most passing attempts without an interception to start a career for a rookie.

But this week, at home against the New Orleans Saints, Dennis Allen's defense gets him. Stroud may still post respectable numbers, but he will turn the ball over in this game.

Bold prediction: C.J. Stroud throws not one, but two interceptions

Fantasy Football Week 6 bold prediction No. 7: 49ers DST could win you the week

With Deshaun Watson ruled out for the game between the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers, the Browns will have to start P.J. Walker at quarterback. Good luck, P.J.

Walker is going to have his hands full against a defense that manhandled the Dallas Cowboys last week and this just sets up for a really ugly matchup. If you're starting the 49ers this week, you are going to be happy with how many points they score.

In DFS, consider paying up for this defense as it is going to feast on Walker and the Browns.
