20 Jared Goff LAR vs. CHI 4.4 D 15.6 1.6 62% (10/16) 7% Great

 
Matthew Stafford (DET)
The Lions were able to put points up on the board this past week against Jacksonville, but the majority of them came on the ground versus through the air. While Stafford looked to be a smash play last week, it’s just the luck of the draw sometimes and determining where exactly the points are going to come from. However, in this matchup, it’s smart to go right back to Stafford as a streaming option. The Falcons simply can’t stop anyone through the air and Stafford has the weapons to make them pay. Fire up Stafford as a low-end QB1 this week.

Drew Brees (NO)
Brees was solid for fantasy in his last outing and he should have MT back on the field for this matchup. The Saints could lean heavily on their run game in this one, which limits Brees’ ceiling. He should be viewed as a mid-range QB2 this week.

50 Benny Snell Jr. PIT at TEN 5 F 4.2 -0.1 41% (5/12) 13% Average

 
Kareem Hunt (CLE)
Hunt disappointed fantasy managers in week five, but this offense simply couldn’t get anything going with Mayfield struggling. While it might be hard to trust Hunt after the numbers he just put up, he absolutely belongs in your starting lineup as a top-tier option against the Bengals run defense. Hunt’s a locked in RB1 this week.

David Montgomery (CHI)
Montgomery hasn’t been efficient on the ground, but it hasn’t mattered much for fantasy. He’s providing a safe floor every single week with his work in the receiving game and he’s been around the end zone regularly. Last week, Montgomery was marked down inches away from the end zone. If that would have counted, Montgomery would’ve been a top-6 RB on the week. It’s another tough matchup here for the Bears OL, but Montgomery’s simply too safe to not start every single week as a high-end RB2 now.

Jerick McKinnon (SF)
With Mostert out, McKinnon gets the nod as the next man up again. He’ll be involved as a receiver out of the backfield, but based on his usage over the past couple of weeks, we can’t expect him to see the majority of the carries. McKinnon can be viewed as a low-upside RB2 this week.

50 James Washington PIT at TEN 6.2 C- 7.4 2 46% (7/15) 10% Good

 
Will Fuller (HOU)
Fuller has been on fire recently and, aside from his disappearing act in week two, he’s been a safe option to plug into your lineup every single week. Over the last four games, Fuller is averaging 5 receptions, 87.75 receiving yards, and one touchdown. He should be viewed as a safe WR2 with WR1 upside every single week moving forward.

CeeDee Lamb (DAL)
Lamb has been a fantasy football star this season. While it’s hard to trust him with the way that Dalton looked on MNF, Lamb should continue to get peppered with the targets in the short passing game. He’s a safe low-end WR2 this week against Washington.

Tyler Boyd (CIN)
Boyd hasn’t produced as much as we’ve expected the past couple of weeks, but he’s still a fine option to plug into your lineup as a high-end WR3 with upside.

20 Greg Olsen SEA at ARI 6.6 D- 5.6 -0.9 30% (4/13) 10% Poor

 
Hayden Hurst (ATL)
Hurst wasn’t targeted heavily last week, but he was able to get the job done for fantasy with a 4-57-1 line. As long as the Falcons are back to being a high-flying offense, Hurst can be rolled out every week as a low-end TE1.

Dalton Schultz (DAL)
Schultz was targeted regularly last week by Dalton, but it still didn’t amount to much. He should be viewed as a high-end TE2 this week based on the other options at the TE position, but I wouldn’t be particularly excited to rush out and plug Schultz into my starting lineup.
