Darius Leonard (LB - IND)
11h
Player Note on Darius Leonard (LB - IND)
Leonard is getting back to his dominant IDP form and is an LB1 overall candidate for Week 7 thanks to a plus matchup against a 49ers team allowing the second-most fantasy points to the linebacker position. Start him with confidence as an IDP1.
Denzel Perryman (LB - LV)
11h
Player Note on Denzel Perryman (LB - LV)
The LB3 overall through six weeks of action, Perryman has been a revelation for fantasy managers. He is locked into a high-value role for the Raiders and should have more fantasy goodness in store for Week 7. Needless to say, Perryman is a must-start against the Eagles.
Roquan Smith (LB - CHI)
11h
Player Note on Roquan Smith (LB - CHI)
The LB1 overall through six weeks of play, Roquan has a tough on-paper matchup in Week 7 against a Buccaneers offense limiting the linebacker position to the second-fewest fantasy points. Despite the matchup, Roquan remains an elite LB1 option.
Devin White (LB - TB)
11h
Player Note on Devin White (LB - TB)
White remains an elite LB1 option despite the disappointing season, relative to expectations. He has one of the most fantasy-friendly games at the position and should get back to the form fantasy managers expected in short order.
Landon Collins (S - WAS)
4d
Player Note on Landon Collins (S - WAS)
Collins is seeing more snaps at linebacker with Jon Bostic out, something that should eventually boost him back into the DB1 discussion. For now, he is better viewed as a DB2 option. Fade if you need a DB1, but lock him in if you start two S/DB in your league.
Jessie Bates III (S - CIN)
4d
Player Note on Jessie Bates III (S - CIN)
Bates was excellent in Week 5 and could have another big game in store for fantasy managers in Week 6. He gets a plus matchup against a running back and tight end centric offense and should be afforded plenty of tackle opportunities.
Micah Hyde (S - BUF)
4d
Player Note on Micah Hyde (S - BUF)
Hyde is riding a three-game pick streak and is a DB1 option for a plus matchup against Derrick Henry and the Tennesee Titans. Very few safeties have as much upside as the white-hot Hyde.
Derwin James Jr. (S - LAC)
4d
Player Note on Derwin James Jr. (S - LAC)
James has a tremendous Week 6 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens and should have a big day in store for fantasy managers. Start him with confidence as a DB1.
Kamren Curl (S - WAS)
4d
Player Note on Kamren Curl (S - WAS)
Curl disappointed to open the season but will look to bounce back in what should be a high-volume afternoon. He is still a DB2 option but is one with a DB4 floor.
Julian Blackmon (S - IND)
4d
Player Note on Julian Blackmon (S - IND)
Blackmon is an exciting, hard-hitting safety who does not always produce for IDP purposes. However, with the byes here and the Colts facing Houston this week, Blackmon becomes a DB2 option.

Mark Ingram II (RB - HOU) - Mark Ingram suspended four games for PEDs
Thu, May 10
With the surprise news coming out regarding Mark Ingram's suspension Alvin Kamara needs to be moved up draft boards. Already in the first round conversation Ingram's ban has solidified Kamara as a top five option at running back and should propel him to at least 1,000 yards on the ground. With the Saints claiming they knew about the suspension possibility prior to the draft and that they will not be adding a street agent former Bill Jonathan Williams is the favorite to spell Kamara until week 5
C.J. Anderson (RB - FA) - C.J. Anderson signs with Panthers
Thu, May 10
The Carolina Panthers made a shrewd move in picking up recently released CJ Anderson from the Denver Broncos after failing to add a starter in the NFL draft. Fresh off his first career 1,000 yard rushing campaign CJ will look to assume the Stewart role in Norv Turner's offense and should push for RB2 numbers this season. His PPR ceiling is limited by the presence of Christian McCaffrey but the 5'8, 228 lbs back should push for 1,000 yards and 7 plus rushing touchdowns for the 2018 campaign.
