Fantasy Football Player Notes

2021 Rest of Season Rankings

Tyreek Hill Note

Hill battled a quad injury in Week 6 and his early-week practice reports suggest he'll be doing so again this Sunday against the Titans. In Week 6, his routes were down to 61% but the team compensated by targeting him on 34% of them. This might not be the week for a "ceiling game" from Tyreek, but he remains a sure-fire, top-five fantasy wideout.

Jaylen Waddle Note

Miami's offense isn't one to get too worked up about, but Waddle has now seen double digit targets in three of his past four games. The rookie continues to improve as the year goes on and DeVante Parker just went on IR. Waddle should continue seeing strong volume for the time being.

Sony Michel Note

Darrell Henderson suffered a knee sprain in Week 16. The hope is that its minor, but Sony Michel was dominating backfield work even before the injury occurred. Michel wound up rushing a whopping 27 times for 131 yards and a touchdown in the win over Minnesota. It was a very encouraging performance for Michel managers, but he draws a tougher test against the Ravens in Week 17. Still, it's impossible not to view him as a borderline RB1.

Chase Edmonds Note

Edmonds is down to seeing just 29% of the Cardinal's rushing attempts through six weeks. Part of that is the fact that Arizona keeps playing with leads. The other part of it is that Edmonds has been battling a shoulder injury as of late. He's seeing a positive target share, but he profiles as a better fantasy play in games we expect Arizona to be losing (or at least competitive). Week 7 against the Texans isn't one of those games.

Mike Gesicki Note

Entering Sunday night, Gesicki has been a top-seven PPR tight end in three of his last four games. It's especially encouraging that he once again produced despite the offense shifting from Jacoby Brissett back to Tua Tagovailoa. Gesicki is likely benefiting from the absences of both DeVante Parker and Will Fuller, but with bye weeks coming up he's a sure fire TE1 until further notice.

Tua Tagovailoa Note

There could be a lot of fantasy teams seeking a Lamar Jackson replacement in Week 15. Enter Tagovailoa, who was on a bye in Week 14 but draws the lifeless Jets next Sunday. The sophomore southpaw hasn't transformed a star player this season, but he has been an extremely accurate quarterback during Miami's recent hot streak. The Dolphins are utilizing a plethora of play action and RPOs, and it's helping. His accuracy and plus matchup give him a strong floor for QB streamers.

Myles Gaskin Note

Gaskin wasn't nearly as involved in Week 15 as many expected him to be. This was likely due to recently contracting COVID-19, and his usage should increase moving forward. However, his utilization has been shaky all season long. Gaskin is impossible to trust in Week 16. Keep him rostered for RB depth, though. If things look a lot better this weekend then fantasy managers could fall back on him in Week 17.

Teddy Bridgewater Note
Teddy Bridgewater photo 233. Teddy Bridgewater QB - (vs . NE)
Teddy Bridgewater has the early lead in the starting QB sweepstakes for the Broncos simply because they traded picks for him. Teddy was serviceable last year at times but didn't light up the stat sheet. The Denver offense is loaded with talent. It's all about whether they can stay healthy. Javonte Williams could help this backfield led by Melvin Gordon (for now) and take pressure off whoever is under center to find Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Noah Fant, and others down the field. The play calling has been very conservative, though, under Vic Fangio, and neither Drew Lock nor Teddy Bridgewater feels like anything more than a placeholder for whoever is next.
