Now, let’s get into some players whose stocks I’m buying on Sunday, October 17, week six. 

Patrick Mahomes (QB – KC) $8.50 (Projected finish: 16) 

Coming off a disappointing loss to the Buffalo Bills, I fully expect Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs to rebound against a porous Washington defense. Through five weeks, quarterbacks facing the Football Team are averaging more than 300 passing yards per game and nearly three touchdowns. If Mahomes is simply above-average against the Washington defense, he’ll put up solid numbers. If there’s anything we know about Patrick Mahomes, however, it’s that he is far from average. If Mahomes is out for blood this weekend, a middling Washington defense won’t even come close to stopping him.

D’Andre Swift (RB – DET) $6.50 (Projected finish: 25) 

Despite totaling only 31 touches over the last two weeks, Swift has played more than 70 percent of snaps in both games. Now, backfield partner Jamaal Williams is dealing with an injury. Even if Williams played, Swift should see a healthy snap share. The Lions, as only three and a half-point underdogs, will likely be able to run more than usual, but even if they can’t, the Bengals are tied for allowing the second-most receptions to opposing running backs and the sixth-most receiving yards. I’m looking for Swift to be firing on all cylinders in this game. 

James Robinson (RB – JAX) $5.50 (Projected finish: 31) 

If James Robinson can put up gaudy numbers in unfavorable game scripts, what could he do in a game with a more level game script? The Miami Dolphins are only three-point favorites in Jacksonville, meaning the Jags won’t likely be playing catch up for three and a half quarters. The Dolphins have allowed the fifth-most rushing yards to opposing running backs and six rushing touchdowns through five weeks. 

Michael Pittman (WR – IND) $4.88 (Projected finish: 35) 

The Colts’ six-foot-four second-year wide receiver is quickly becoming Carson Wentz‘s favorite target. If there’s one thing we know about Wentz, it’s that he isn’t afraid to air out a 50/50 ball downfield. Last week against Baltimore, Pittman mossed Anthony Averett for an unreal 42-yard score. Not only is Pittman Wentz’s favorite downfield target, Pittman is really coming into his own as a receiver this season, he looks great. Pittman has been targeted five times inside the 10-yard line, good for third-most among WRs. Wentz and the Colts will look to redeem themselves after a heartbreaking overtime loss to Baltimore, and Pittman should certainly play a role in what is hopefully a waxing of the division rival Houston Texans.  

Ricky Seals-Jones (TE – WAS) $2.75 (Projected finish: 55)

Last week, Dawson Knox was my budget player of the week. This weekend that player is also a TE facing the Kansas City Chiefs, this time a backup thrust into a starting role due to Logan Thomas‘ injury. The Chiefs have allowed more yards (466) than any other team to opposing TEs. Over the last two weeks, Seals-Jones has played 93 and 99 percent of offensive snaps respectively. In last weekend’s loss to New Orleans, QB Taylor Heinicke targeted Seals-Jones nine times. Kansas City vs Washington has the highest Vegas-projected point total, which usually means there will be lots of passing. I expect Seals-Jones to see some volume on Sunday.
