Week 6 of the NFL and fantasy football season is here and as always, we have this week's studs, duds and sleepers.

Make sure to use USA TODAY Sports' rankings to help as well, and good luck!

Studs

QB Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

What a way to return from the bye: The Bucs QB will face a Falcons passing defense that's given up 277 yards through the air per game.

RB Sony Michel, New England Patriots

Captain Obvious over here, but Michel has established himself as a bona fide RB1 for the Pats and now gets to work against the Chiefs.

WR Tyler Boyd, Cincinnati Bengals

Ignore last week's disappointing game against the Dolphins. The Steelers give up the third-most passing yards in the NFL, so Boyd and A.J. Green should go off.

TE Austin Hooper, Atlanta Falcons

Fresh off a 12-target game against the Steelers, he gets a matchup against the Bucs, the team that's given up the most fantasy points to tight ends per ESPN.

Duds

QB Joe Flacco, Baltimore Ravens

In two-QB leagues, sit the quarterback who's thrown at least two TDs in three of his five games this season. The Titans are stifling against opposing passers, and if the Browns' up-and-coming defense could shut Flacco down, so can Tennessee.

RB Devonta Freeman, Atlanta Falcons

You may not have the luxury of benching an RB you selected pretty high, but I just don't trust him this week after a dud of a game upon returning. Add in the fact that the Bucs are a surprising fourth in the NFL against the run and that the split with Tevin Coleman seems to be more 50/50 than the past and I'm nervous.

WR Corey Davis, Tennessee Titans

It's becoming frustrating to be a Davis owner: After a 161-yard game against the Eagles, he throws up a 4-49 stinker against the Bills. It seems like Marcus Mariota still isn't 100 percent, and now the Titans host the uber-tough Ravens.

TE Eric Ebron, Indianapolis Colts

Because the tight end position is a complete mess, the answer here is you start anyone who's halfway decent. Ebron, however, after a huge Week 5, goes up against the Jets, the toughest defense against tight ends. So you'll almost definitely start him, but don't expect a repeat of last week.

Sleepers

QB Mitchell Trubisky, Chicago Bears

The Dolphins rank 20th in the NFL against the pass, the Bears are coming off the bye and Trubisky threw six touchdowns against the Bucs in his last start. I'm not saying he'll throw six again, but he could have the kind of upside that makes him a sleeper.

RB Latavius Murray, Minnesota Vikings

If Dalvin Cook doesn't play, Murray gets to run against the second-worst rushing defense in the NFL in the Cardinals. If you're looking for a spot starter with a running back on the bye, here's one to stream.

WR Tyler Lockett, Seattle Seahawks

He's emerged as the top target in the Emerald City and has scored in every game but one thus far. Oakland's porous defense could be an opportunity for him to score again.

TE David Njoku, Cleveland Browns

A breakout is on the horizon for the former first rounder. He had a season-high 11 targets in Week 5 and turned them into six catches for 69 yards. Congratulations if you held on to him through his struggles or picked him off waivers.
