Week 6 of the NFL season has some very exciting matchups for star wide receivers to impress for your fantasy football team.

The Dallas Cowboys will go up against one of the worst pass defenses in football in the New England Patriots, and will be bolstered by the healthy return of Miles Austin.

Calvin Johnson will have another great week for the Detroit Lions, who are playing the San Francisco 49ers in a matchup of division leaders.

Let's take a look at three star wide receivers who will succeed in Week 6.

Miles Austin

Miles Austin will make his return from injury for the Dallas Cowboys this week and he has a very favorable matchup against the New England Patriots pass defense which is one of the worst in the NFL.

Austin will not be double teamed much, if at all with the Patriots having to carefully defend fellow WR Dez Bryant and All-Pro tight end Jason Witten.

Austin is an elite receiver with great speed and dependable hands, and he will have a monster day against the Patriots on Sunday.

Expect a touchdown and close to 100 yards receiving for Austin.

Calvin Johnson

Detroit Lions superstar receiver Calvin Johnson is on a historic touchdown pace this season with nine receiving touchdowns through five games.

Johnson will play the San Francisco 49ers this week, and they have no one strong enough to defend "Megatron."

Johnson will get at least two touchdowns on Sunday, and it would be very surprising if he doesn't accumulate 100 yards receiving.

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford will likely look for the deep ball a lot for Johnson this week too.

A.J. Green

One of the most impressive rookies this season has been Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green, who has given fellow rookie quarterback Andy Dalton a great target to throw to anywhere on the field.

Green will have his way against a bad Indianapolis Colts defense this week, and he will be effective in the red zone too.

The Colts don't have anyone that can disrupt Green, and he will score at least a touchdown with 100 yards receiving.

It's a very favorable matchup for the young Bengals star.
