Top Performers of Week 6

Angelo Blackson, DL, Jacksonville Jaguars: Angelo Blackson has a knack for finding loose footballs. He recovered a fumble for the third time this season during the Jaguars’ victory over the Indianapolis Colts. Teammate Josh Allen’s sack on Gardner Minshew forced the fumble, and Blackson was quick to pounce on it. This feat places him alongside T.J. Watt as the only two NFL players with three fumble recoveries this season.

Daniel Carlson, K, Las Vegas Raiders: Daniel Carlson played a pivotal role in the Raiders’ 21-17 triumph over the Patriots by contributing 13 of their 21 points. He successfully converted all four of his field goal attempts, including a crucial fourth-quarter kick that secured a two-possession lead. Carlson maintains a perfect extra point record this season, going 9-9 and accumulating a total of 36 points.

Jamel Dean, CB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: After recovering from an injury that sidelined him last week, Jamel Dean returned to the starting lineup against the Detroit Lions. He delivered a standout performance, earning the second-highest PFF grade (75.2) among Bucs’ defenders. Dean made six tackles, including a crucial third-down stop early in the second quarter that forced the Lions to punt.

Darius Slayton, WR, New York Giants: Darius Slayton was a shining star for the New York Giants’ offense, leading the team with 69 receiving yards on four receptions against the Buffalo Bills. He achieved a season-high in receiving yards, with two of his catches coming on third down, aiding the Giants in moving the chains. Slayton received a PFF grade of 65.8, ranking fifth-highest on the offensive squad.
