Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 6 Rankings

Derrick Henry Note
Derrick Henry photo 1. Derrick Henry RB - TEN (vs . BUF)
Fantasy's numero uno RB has rolled opposing defenses this season. Only problem is, he hasn't faced a defense like Buffalo's yet. This Bills defense is no joke, and Henry falls outside my top-5 RBs for the week against a team that has allowed the second-fewest points to opposing backs this season.

Najee Harris Note
Najee Harris photo 2. Najee Harris RB - PIT (vs . SEA)
Harris has averaged just under 25 total touches per game over his last three and is hot off his best game of the season. He gets a great matchup with the 'Hawks in Week 6, where he should be considered a top-2 RB option.

Austin Ekeler Note
Austin Ekeler photo 3. Austin Ekeler RB - LAC (at BAL)
Ekeler is so good that he scores touchdowns even when he's not trying to. Near the end of the game last week, Ekeler was given a red zone carry and was simply trying to go down to keep the clock running, but the Browns defense (wisely) pulled him across the goal line and Ekeler's fantasy managers rejoiced. In all seriousness, Ekeler was dominant in week five against the Browns and put up a whopping 30.4 Half PPR points. Up to this point of the season, Ekeler now ranks fourth in the NFL in red zone rush attempts with 18. All of last season - albeit in 10 games - Ekeler had just 18 red zone rush attempts when all was said and done. The receiving work is still there for the talented RB and he's getting valuable scoring opportunities each and every game with this newfound usage close to the end zone. He's slowly worked his way up my rest-of-season rankings after each game and there's no reason why we should view him as anything less than a top-5 option for the remainder of the year. In this matchup against the Ravens, who are allowing the 7th-most fantasy points to opposing RBs this season, Ekeler's a smash start.

Ezekiel Elliott Note
Ezekiel Elliott photo 4. Ezekiel Elliott RB - DAL (at NE)
Fantasy managers that spite-traded Elliott away after his week one performance have to be absolutely kicking themselves right now. Over Zeke's last two games, he is averaging 20.5 rush attempts, 126.5 rushing yards, and one rushing touchdown per game. While he still isn't extremely involved in the receiving game, he was able to reel in an additional receiving touchdown last week on one of his three targets just to add a little extra salt in the wound. In all seriousness, Zeke has been a force for fantasy football this entire season outside of the game against Tampa Bay and there's no reason to believe that that will change any time soon. The Cowboys are incredibly committed to their run game this season and both Zeke and Pollard are seeing plenty of work. The Patriots have been pretty tough on opposing RBs so far this season, but they have yet to face a rushing attack like the one Dallas possesses. Fire up Zeke as a top-5 RB yet again in this one.

Jonathan Taylor Note
Jonathan Taylor photo 5. Jonathan Taylor RB - IND (vs . HOU)
JT has absolutely smashed over his last two games, accumulating over 100 scrimmage yards in both contests and scoring thrice in that span. He has overall RB1 potential in a Week 6 tilt with Houston's 'meh' defense.
3 days ago
Kareem Hunt Note
Kareem Hunt photo 6. Kareem Hunt RB - CLE (vs . ARI)
Here are Hunt's averages over the last three games: 12 rush attempts, 70.33 rushing yards, 1.33 rushing touchdowns, 5.66 targets, 39.66 receiving yards, and zero receiving touchdowns. Over that time frame, Hunt is the RB5 in fantasy football. Despite being the second option in this backfield, Hunt has absolutely produced in a big way for fantasy lineups and he's been a rock-solid option as an RB2. While the game script might not play out as favorably this week for the Browns, Hunt should still remain in starting lineups due to his involvement. He certainly needs to find the end zone to push his way into the top-12 though and the Cardinals are only allowing .2 rushing touchdowns per game on average so far this season. We might not have that upside this week, but we know that he comes with a high floor. He can be viewed as a mid-range RB2 in week six.
10 hours ago
Tyreek Hill Note
Tyreek Hill photo 7. Tyreek Hill WR - KC (at WAS)
Hill was kept in check for the majority of week five, but that still resulted in a 26% target share and 14 total opportunities. He only finished the game with seven receptions for 63 yards, but the volume is encouraging for fantasy managers. Looking ahead to week six, Hill belongs in your lineup as a top-3 option yet again. Washington is currently allowing 15.8 receptions per game to opposing WRs - the highest total in the league - and 205 receiving yards on average. With Hill's ability to get open deep downfield, he could be in line for a monstrous game here. Fire him up with full confidence this week.

Davante Adams Note
Davante Adams photo 8. Davante Adams WR - GB (at CHI)
After posting the highest single-game receiving total of his career last week with an 11/206/1 line, Adams will face a Bears defense allowing the 10th-most points to the position in 2021. You're obviously not taking him out of lineups.

Dalvin Cook Note

Aaron Jones Note
Aaron Jones photo 10. Aaron Jones RB - GB (at CHI)
Jones has received 18 total touches in each of his last two games while averaging over 100 scrimmage yards. The problem? No touchdowns. He's receiving a huge workload that should translate to RB1 numbers once he finds the end zone again. I'd bet that he does in Week 6, making him a top-5 option.

James Robinson Note
James Robinson photo 11. James Robinson RB - JAC (vs . MIA)
During the postgame press conference after the Jaguars' week five loss to the Titans, Urban Meyer was asked about the decision to give Carlos Hyde the ball on a crucial 4th & 1 play near the goal-line rather than using Lawrence or Robinson. He said, "I don't micromanage who's in the game." While Robinson has been utterly fantastic for fantasy managers over the past few weeks, he's always going to have a cap on his fantasy ceiling with Meyer at the helm. If Robinson is in on that play - Hyde lost several yards on the attempt, FYI - the Jaguars most likely cash in and make the game competitive. Instead, Robinson is pulled for Hyde and he has to watch the veteran RB fail to convert a crucial play. While there's room to have a conversation about what Robinson's ceiling could be for fantasy football if he didn't have Meyer as his head coach, it's still important to recognize what he's doing on the field. He is now on pace for 228 rush attempts, 1,315 rushing yards, and 13.6 touchdowns on the ground. Additionally, he's set to add 48 receptions for 300 yards through the air as well. These are top-tier numbers at the RB position for fantasy football and there's virtually no matchup where we should be concerned about playing the second-year RB moving forward. In week six against Miami, he can be viewed as a low-end RB1.

Darrell Henderson Jr. Note
Darrell Henderson Jr. photo 12. Darrell Henderson Jr. RB - LAR (at NYG)
Henderson is now in the conversation for a potential league-winner with the way that he is playing compared to where he was drafted. In the four games Henderson has played this season, he is averaging 15 rush attempts, 73.5 rushing yards, .75 rushing touchdowns, 2.5 receptions, and 22.5 receiving yards per game. He's become one of the most consistent fantasy assets at the RB position this season and the schedule now opens up for him and the Rams rushing attack. Henderson has been putting up these types of numbers against Chicago, Indianapolis, Arizona, and Seattle and those are not easy matchups on the ground. The next three weeks, Henderson gets to take on the New York Giants, the Detroit Lions, and the Houston Texans. In a matchup against the Giants that just allowed the Cowboys' RBs to rumble for 185 yards on the ground, Henderson's a smash play. He can now consistently be viewed as a low-end RB1 with upside every single week.
10 hours ago
Joe Mixon Note
Joe Mixon photo 13. Joe Mixon RB - CIN (at DET)
Despite two excellent matchups in his last two games, Mixon has finished outside the top-20 RBs in both instances. One of the biggest issues with his fantasy value this season? Lack of involvement as a receiver. Over his last four games, Mixon has four receptions. That's not going to cut it. Mixon deserves a top-12 ranking against Detroit's defense, though fantasy managers should be apprehensive.
3 days ago
Cooper Kupp Note
Cooper Kupp photo 14. Cooper Kupp WR - LAR (at NYG)
Cooper Kupp didn't put up an out-of-this-world performance in week five, but he was still dominant on the field. Kupp saw 10 targets and he reeled in seven of them for 92 yards, yet fantasy managers are seemingly disappointed. With the historic pace that Kupp was on earlier this season, anything less than 150 yards and a touchdown seems like it's falling short of expectations. However, he was still solid and there's no reason why we should move off of valuing him as a top-5 option. Looking ahead to week six, Kupp will now get to take on the Giants secondary that is coming off of a rough performance against the Cowboys. New York just allowed both CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper to average over 20 Yards Per Reception and they each found the end zone in week five. Kupp belongs right back in your lineups as a top-5 WR in week six.
10 hours ago
Antonio Gibson Note
Antonio Gibson photo 15. Antonio Gibson RB - WAS (vs . KC)
With the news that Gibson was dealing with a stress fracture in his shin, fantasy managers and analysts alike bumped Gibson down in their rankings for week five. It seemed like a safe assumption that he wasn't going to see his normal workload and he needed to be downgraded accordingly. Instead, Gibson saw 57% of the snaps and ended up with 22 total touches in Washington's loss to New Orleans. While he only averaged a pedestrian 3.0 Yards Per Carry, the Saints defense is a tougher matchup and usually keeps opposing RBs in check. Those numbers don't quite matter though when Gibson is able to find the end zone twice and double his touchdown production up to that point of the season in one game. Moving forward, it seems like Gibson is locked back into a massive workload in this offense and it could only continue to grow as he gets further and further out from this injury. Against the Chiefs defense that is allowing 19.8 fantasy points per game to opposing RBs this season, Gibson needs to be in your starting lineup as a high-end RB2.
10 hours ago
Travis Kelce Note
Travis Kelce photo 16. Travis Kelce TE - KC (at WAS)
Through five weeks, if you were to take Kelce's fantasy points (75.8) and move them over to the WR position, he would rank as the WR12 just ahead of Terry McLaurin. Fantasy managers that rolled the dice on the TE position and didn't want to pay up for Kelce are left with a massive headache trying to figure out what to do each and every week. Whereas managers that added Kelce couldn't be happier with their investment and the security that he brings at the position. In this matchup against Washington, Kelce's a top-2 option yet again.
10 hours ago
Stefon Diggs Note
Stefon Diggs photo 17. Stefon Diggs WR - BUF (at TEN)
If there were ever a chance for Diggs to go off, this week's matchup with the Titans would be it. Tennessee has given up the most points to opposing wideouts this season, and despite Diggs' disappointing performance thus far, a bounce-back could be on the horizon.
2 days ago
Justin Jefferson Note
Justin Jefferson photo 18. Justin Jefferson WR - MIN (at CAR)
The Vikings' opponents this week, the Panthers, have been stingy against the pass and are graded fifth in the league in pass coverage by PFF. But matchups are of little concern to Jefferson investors, who have watched their stud receiver stack up one nice game after another. Jefferson ranks sixth in the league in both receptions (33) and receiving yards (462). He's averaging 103.4 air yards per game and has accounted for over 40% of the Vikings' air yards this season. Kirk Cousins has a passer rating of 131.1 on his Jefferson targets this year. Cousins' overall passer rating: 103.7. Jefferson missed practice Wednesday with an ankle injury, so we'll have to monitor his status. Assuming the injury is minor, I'm ranking Jefferson WR5 this week. His $8,000 price tag on DraftKings is a bit too rich in light of the ankle injury and the tricky matchup.

D'Andre Swift Note
D'Andre Swift photo 19. D'Andre Swift RB - DET (vs . CIN)
Swift gets a tough draw against the Bengals' surprisingly strong run defense, though he has a sturdy floor thanks to his steady work as a receiver. Continue to deploy him as a top-10 option in Week 6.
3 days ago
D.J. Moore Note
D.J. Moore photo 20. D.J. Moore WR - CAR (vs . MIN)
After three straight WR1 finishes, Moore busted in a big way last week. That's no reason to downgrade him for a favorable Week 6 matchup with the Vikes. Continue to roll with Moore as a top-7 play.
2 days ago
Leonard Fournette Note
Leonard Fournette photo 21. Leonard Fournette RB - TB (at PHI)
When Bernard was activated right before kickoff last week, I panicked and dropped Leonard Fournette a bit in my weekly rankings. He was definitely still worth starting, but I had plenty of concerns about what his workload would be with Gio in the fold. While Bernard was able to find the end zone as a receiver, it didn't make much of a difference for Fournette and he appears to now have locked away the starting role in this offense. Fournette had 17 total opportunities in week five against the Dolphins and he turned it into 110 total yards and a score. He is experiencing a career resurgence here in Tampa Bay and he's looking like the old Fournette that we saw at LSU that was worthy of the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. He's pulled away from Jones from a snap count perspective (46 snaps in week five to just 10 for Jones) and he still maintained a heavy workload through the air with Gio active. Moving forward, there's no reason why we shouldn't view Fournette as a mid-range RB2 every single week. He's in one of the league's top offenses and he's now secured this starting job. Against Philadelphia, who just allowed Chuba Hubbard to run for over 100 yards, Fournette's a rock-solid start as a mid-range RB2 with upside.
10 hours ago
Terry McLaurin Note
Terry McLaurin photo 22. Terry McLaurin WR - WAS (vs . KC)
McLaurin didn't put up necessarily impressive numbers in week five, but the Saints are one of the tougher matchups for opposing WRs this entire season. The encouraging takeaway is that McLaurin still saw a hefty 27.5% target share that resulted in 11 total targets. Through five games, McLaurin now has a 30.2% target share, which is the fifth-highest in the entire NFL. Looking ahead to week six, McLaurin now gets a matchup against the Chiefs defense that simply cannot stop opposing passing games. They're currently allowing 26.4 fantasy points per game to opposing WRs and there's the potential that McLaurin finishes the week as a top-5 WR because of the matchup and the projected over/under. Fire him up with full confidence this week.
10 hours ago
Josh Jacobs Note
Josh Jacobs photo 23. Josh Jacobs RB - LV (at DEN)
Jacobs hasn't done much to impress this season, and he faces a tough Broncos run defense in Week 6. He's more of an RB3/flex type than an RB2 for this one.
2 days ago
Ja'Marr Chase Note
Ja'Marr Chase photo 24. Ja'Marr Chase WR - CIN (at DET)
Chase scored yet another touchdown last week, his fifth of the season. It was a 70-yarder, his longest of the season, and four of the rookie's touchdowns have covered 34 yards or more. Chase is averaging 15.1 fantasy points per game (0.5 PPR), making him the WR6 on the season. He'll be a problematic matchup for any of the Detroit defensive backs who face him Sunday. Chase is a no-brainer start in season-long leagues. The only question is whether to trot him out in DFS lineups. At $6,700 on DraftKings, he isn't cheap, but Chase has obvious smash potential and is worth considering for both cash games and GPPs.
3 days ago
Mike Williams Note
Mike Williams photo 25. Mike Williams WR - LAC (at BAL)
Ladies and gentlemen, the WR1 in all of fantasy football through five weeks, Mike Williams! The off-season buzz surrounding Williams and the talk that targets find the X-receiver in this offense proved to be 100% true and Williams has been the unquestioned steal of fantasy drafts. Even with a dud performance in week four, Williams is averaging 20.1 fantasy points per game and he's helping carry fantasy rosters to victories each and every week. Based on pre-snap alignment, Williams is expected to draw coverage from Anthony Averett this week and that's a massive advantage for Williams and the Chargers passing game. Expect another big performance here from Williams this week and he can be viewed as a low-end WR1 with massive upside.
10 hours ago
Mike Evans Note
Mike Evans photo 26. Mike Evans WR - TB (at PHI)
In the words of the old NBA Jam video game, "He's on fire!" Mike Evans is playing lights out football here recently and fantasy managers have to be thrilled that they paid up for him in their drafts. Even with Brown and Godwin producing solid numbers so far this season, Evans continues to dominate. Over his last four games, Evans has 369 receiving yards and four total touchdowns. The lowest receiving yardage total he's had during that time period is 75 yards, which is an incredibly high floor for fantasy purposes. In years past, there's been plenty of volatility with Evans from a fantasy perspective and you simply had to live with the big performances and the games that he would seemingly disappear. 2021 is a different story for the veteran receiver though and he's done nothing but produce at a high level outside of week one. With Brady showing no signs of a drop-off in play, Evans should continuously be in the high-end/mid-range WR2 conversation. Against the Eagles defense that held the Panthers' passing game in check, but got shredded by Mahomes and the Chiefs just two weeks ago, Evans is a rock-solid start.
10 hours ago
D.K. Metcalf Note
D.K. Metcalf photo 27. D.K. Metcalf WR - SEA (at PIT)
Even with Geno Smith under center, Metcalf doesn't deserve a serious downgrade this week. He's still a top-5 play against a generous Steelers secondary.
2 days ago
DeAndre Hopkins Note
DeAndre Hopkins photo 28. DeAndre Hopkins WR - ARI (at CLE)
When fantasy managers draft a WR with a premium pick, they hope that they finish at - or around - where they selected them at the end of the season. This makes sense, right? There are two ways that players can reach that top-tier fantasy finish can be by providing big performances here or there spattered throughout the season, but they may have disappeared some weeks. This is most famously exemplified by a player like Tyler Lockett. The other way that players finish as a top-12 option at their respective position is by being incredibly consistent week in and week out. They might not always provide huge week-winning performances, but there's a lot to be said for knowing what you're going to get when you put someone in your starting lineup. Hopkins is a perfect example of the second way to finish as a top-tier fantasy asset. Outside of his game against Jacksonville this year - where he most likely wasn't 100% - Hopkins hasn't finished with less than 54 receiving yards in any single game. Despite consistently drawing the toughest coverage on the defense, he's continued to produce rock-solid numbers. It may not be always to the level of what we thought we were getting when we drafted Nuk as a top-5 WR, but he's going to absolutely finish as a top-tier option at the end of the year. In this matchup against Cleveland this week that just got torched by the Chargers passing game, Hopkins can be viewed as a mid-range/low-end WR1.
10 hours ago
Chuba Hubbard Note
Chuba Hubbard photo 29. Chuba Hubbard RB - CAR (vs . MIN)
C-Mac has a chance to return this week, but if he's unable to go, Hubbard should be considered an RB2/flex. If McCaffrey is unable to go, Hubbard would get a significant boost in value.
2 days ago
Chris Godwin Note
Chris Godwin photo 30. Chris Godwin WR - TB (at PHI)
Chris Godwin was viewed as the safest Bucs receiving option coming into the season and that's exactly what he's been through the first five weeks of the season. In any of his five games this year, Godwin hasn't finished with less than 55 receiving yards. While it's difficult to watch what other fantasy managers are getting with AB and Evans in this offense, there's a lot to be said for consistency from your WR1 or WR2 spot. Godwin isn't going to bring you week-winning upside unless he finds the end zone, but he's one of the most reliable fantasy assets at the WR position currently. We need to downgrade him slightly to account for his lack of upside, but not by much. He can be viewed as a mid-range/low-end WR2 in week six against the Eagles' secondary that's not going to have a prayer for stopping this Bucs passing attack.
10 hours ago
CeeDee Lamb Note
CeeDee Lamb photo 31. CeeDee Lamb WR - DAL (at NE)
Fantasy managers desperately needed that performance from Lamb last week, didn't they? After disappointing in both weeks three and four, managers were starting to panic over Lamb and his place in their starting lineups. However, he came through with a big outing (4-84-1) and all is right again in the world. Looking ahead to week six, Lamb should draw coverage from J.C. Jackson this week and Jackson is allowing a very high 1.92 Yards Per Route Covered this season. Taking all of that into account, Prescott should be able to put together a solid outing here in this game and that means that Lamb should be at the forefront of it. He deserves to be viewed as a mid-range/low-end WR2 with upside here.
10 hours ago
Chase Claypool Note
Chase Claypool photo 32. Chase Claypool WR - PIT (vs . SEA)
Despite Pittsburgh's muted passing volume in Week 5, Claypool still went off, catching 5 of 6 targets for 130 yards and a touchdown. He could be poised for even bigger things this week. JuJu Smith-Schuster's season-ending shoulder injury should lead to extra targets, and Claypool will face a Seattle defense that's given up 100-plus yards to X-receivers Justin Jefferson, Deebo Samuel and Robert Woods over the last three weeks. X marks the spot for Claypool. He's at WR16 in this week's rankings, and that seems too conservative.
3 days ago
Zack Moss Note
Zack Moss photo 33. Zack Moss RB - BUF (at TEN)
Moss has been a solid option for fantasy managers this season, though his value has been largely touchdown-dependent. There's no reason to fear, as his Week 6 opponent is tied for sixth-most rushing TDs allowed to opposing RBs on the year. FIre up Moss as a mid-range RB2 against the Titans.
3 days ago
Darrel Williams Note
Darrel Williams photo 34. Darrel Williams RB - KC (at WAS)
With Clyde Edwards-Helaire landing on Injured Reserve, Darrel Williams is the next man up to assume the starting job in one of the league's most potent offenses. We've seen Williams be a factor for fantasy football - in some fashion - up to this point of the season, but he's now going to be walking into the majority of the touches out of the backfield. While there's the possibility that Williams surrenders some work to McKinnon, Williams is going to be guaranteed a minimum of 12-15 touches this week and moving forward until CEH returns. We know that he's a capable receiver out of the backfield and that he has a nose for the end zone around the goal line. In a matchup this week against Washington, who is bleeding fantasy points to every position group this season, Williams is a locked-in RB2 with upside.
10 hours ago
Marquise Brown Note
Marquise Brown photo 35. Marquise Brown WR - BAL (vs . LAC)
We're now through five weeks of the 2021 NFL season and Brown is the WR6 in all of fantasy football. He's absolutely dominated so far this season and he's averaging 17.9 fantasy points per game. The scariest thing is that Brown's fantasy totals could have been so much higher if he had reeled in those three deep passes against the Lions in week three, which most likely would've put him on the overall WR1 pedestal. Bateman seems set to return to the lineup this week, which will limit Brown's target share slightly, but there's no reason why Brown should be out of our starting lineups at any point moving forward. He comes with week-winning upside and he's producing at an extremely high level. He can be viewed as a mid-range WR2 in week six.
10 hours ago
Diontae Johnson Note
Diontae Johnson photo 36. Diontae Johnson WR - PIT (vs . SEA)
Johnson has scored or topped 100 yards in every game he's played this season. Even after a two-catch outing in Week 5, you've got to roll with him as a back-end WR2 in Week 6.
2 days ago
Darren Waller Note
Darren Waller photo 37. Darren Waller TE - LV (at DEN)
It seemed as if Waller was preparing to rewrite the record books when he opened the season with a 10-105-1 game on 19 targets. But Waller has failed to exceed 65 yards in any of the four games since. He's had at least seven targets, four receptions and 45 yards in each of those games, and those certainly aren't bad minimums for a tight end. Waller is no ordinary tight end though, and while the occasional 4-45-0 stat line is acceptable, you didn't sink second- or third-round capital into Waller to get those types of numbers every week. Waler investors might have to settle for more of the same, however, with Waller facing a Denver defense that's giving up 3.0 fantasy points per game to tight end.
3 days ago
Courtland Sutton Note
Courtland Sutton photo 38. Courtland Sutton WR - DEN (vs . LV)
After a couple of slow weeks, Sutton erupted in Week 5, catching seven passes for 120 yards and scoring his first touchdown of the season. Sutton has 644 air yards for the season and trails only Davante Adams in that category. But while Adams produces nearly every week, Sutton has had two 100-yard games this season and has been held under 50 receiving yards in the other three. Sutton ranks as a midrange WR2 this week against the Raiders, who are giving up 16.1 fantasy points per game to wide receivers, the third-lowest total in the league.
3 days ago
Keenan Allen Note
Keenan Allen photo 39. Keenan Allen WR - LAC (at BAL)
Through the first five weeks of the season, we can confidently say that Allen hasn't lived up to expectations. Based on where he was drafted, fantasy managers expected a lot more than a WR23 ranking on the season up to this point. With that being said, Allen is still providing weekly fantasy value and he's producing for lineups. It may not be in the way we all wanted or expected coming into the year, but there's a lot to be said for consistency for your WR2 spot in your lineup. Allen has yet to see less than eight targets in a single game this year and he's had just one performance where he finished with less than 50 receiving yards. Williams is taking the upside away from Allen in this Chargers offense this season, but he's still a rock-solid play every single week due to his high floor. In this matchup against the Ravens' secondary, Allen can be viewed as a low-end WR2.
10 hours ago
Devontae Booker Note
Devontae Booker photo 40. Devontae Booker RB - NYG (vs . LAR)
With Saquon Barkley likely to miss the next couple of weeks with a left ankle sprain, Booker is going to assume the lead-back role in this offense. While Booker should see a minimum of 12 touches in this game, we shouldn't exactly be expecting the same level of production as Barkley. Booker has stepped in on occasion as the lead back throughout his time in the NFL and he's been able to be a fine fantasy asset in those performances, but the upside simply isn't there. In this offense that may not even have its starting QB on Sunday, we shouldn't be expecting much from Booker from a fantasy perspective. He can be viewed as a low-end RB2 simply based on volume.

Khalil Herbert Note

Mark Andrews Note
Mark Andrews photo 42. Mark Andrews TE - BAL (vs . LAC)
Hello, Andrews! Welcome back to the top-tier of fantasy football TE rankings! Andrews went nuclear in week five against the Colts and he helped carry countless fantasy rosters to a victory with this performance. Against the Colts on Monday Night Football, Andrews saw 13 targets and he reeled in 11 of them for 147 yards and two touchdowns! Did you know that his 41.7 PPR points in week five ranks 11th all-time at the TE position? This is insane production at the TE position and it's good to see it happen to a player that fantasy managers have been waiting for it for quite a while. Moving forward, we can't expect a top-15 all-time performance from Andrews in this matchup, but he has solidified himself as a top-3 option rest-of-season. He's been incredibly consistent up to this point and we now know that the week-winning upside is certainly there. Fire him up with complete confidence this week in a game that could quickly turn into the shootout of the week.

Javonte Williams Note
Javonte Williams photo 43. Javonte Williams RB - DEN (vs . LV)
The Raiders have had a tough week, with the Jon Gruden email scandal throwing the organization into turmoil. If the Raiders come into Denver flat this weekend, both of the Broncos' running backs could produce satisfying rushing numbers. Williams' carry totals this season have been dictated by game script. When Denver raced out to a 3-0 start, Williams was averaging 13 carries. Over the last two weeks, with Denver playing mostly from behind in losses to the Ravens and Steelers, Williams has averaged 7.5 carries. The rookie managed to make the most of his carries in Week 5, rushing eight times for 61 yards. He's had three receptions in three straight games. Gordon's volume has also waned in the last two weeks. He averaged 14 carries a game in the Broncos' three wins, nine carries in their two losses. Williams is ranked RB20 this week, Gordon RB21. I really like Williams at $5,000 on DraftKings, and Gordon has some GPP appeal at $5,100.

DeVonta Smith Note
DeVonta Smith photo 44. DeVonta Smith WR - PHI (vs . TB)
Devonta Smith has certainly had a bit of an up-and-down rookie season so far, but he's continuing to be heavily targeted and he's strung together two solid back-to-back performances. Smith led the Eagles in targets in week five against the Panthers with eight and he turned it into seven receptions for 77 yards and no score. While he did have a touchdown this past week, it was called back due to an illegal pick play in the end zone by Greg Ward. Additionally, Smith lost a fumble last week which hurt his overall fantasy finish, but the production is there enough in this Eagles offense that we can rely on him moving forward. It might not be as a low-end WR2 or higher like everyone was hoping for at the beginning of the season, but he's a steady and reliable mid-range/low-end WR3 that does come with some upside in this matchup against the Bucs' secondary that's bleeding fantasy points. Otherwise, none of the other Eagles' WRs should be considered for fantasy football.

Robert Woods photo 45. Robert Woods WR - LAR (at NYG)
Welcome back, Bobby Trees! After being one of fantasy football's biggest disappointments over the first four weeks of the season, Robert Woods emerged in a big way on the national stage in week five. Woods saw a jaw-dropping 14 targets and he reeled in 12 of them for 150 receiving yards. There's more than enough opportunity for both of these top-tier WRs to flourish from a fantasy perspective in this offense and Woods is now right back into the mid-range/low-end WR2 conversation. In a matchup against the Giants secondary that is struggling to contain opposing WRs so far this season, Woods has top-10 upside yet again.

Antonio Brown Note
Antonio Brown photo 46. Antonio Brown WR - TB (at PHI)
If we remove the fluke week two outing against Atlanta from Antonio Brown's statistics, here's what his weekly average would look like from a production standpoint. 8.66 targets, 6.33 receptions, 102.66 receiving yards, and one touchdown per game. For fantasy managers that spent a mid-round pick on AB, that is music to your ears. He's providing huge performances in certain matchups and yet he's also bringing a safe floor in games where he doesn't find the end zone. There's no reason why AB shouldn't be moving up the rest-of-season rankings into low-end WR2 territory and he comes with massive upside every single week. Against the Eagles this week on Thursday Night Football, Brown should be viewed in that range to account for the possibility that the touchdowns go to one of the other dynamic receiving options in this offense, but there's also the strong possibility that he finishes as a top-5 WR yet again. Start AB if you've got him.

A.J. Brown Note

The Bills present a challenging matchup for a stud receiver who has been anything but studly this season. At this point, we can't rank AJB any higher than a backend WR2 until his production begins to improve.

Amari Cooper Note
Amari Cooper photo 48. Amari Cooper WR - DAL (at NE)
Through the first five games of 2020, Cooper had amassed a total of 55 targets and he was the WR13 in fantasy football. Through the first five weeks this year, Cooper has only seen 34 targets, but he's still the WR14 in fantasy football due to his touchdown production. Cooper now has four touchdowns on the season, which is certainly offsetting the lack of target volume that he's been getting. With Prescott playing as sharp as he is so far this season, there's no reason to believe that Cooper's production will fall off at any point. He's one of Prescott's favorite targets in the red zone and we know that he has the talent to make those opportunities count. In a matchup against the Patriots' secondary that just got torched by the Texans last week, fire up Cooper as a high-end WR2 yet again.

Brandin Cooks Note
Brandin Cooks photo 49. Brandin Cooks WR - HOU (at IND)
Kudos to Chris Moore and Chris Conley on their touchdowns last week, but Cooks is still the only Texans receiver who matters for fantasy. The return of Nico Collins from a shoulder injury either this week or next could change that, but we'll need to see something from Collins first. Cooks was held to 3-23-0 on five targets last week, and he's been held under 50 yards in two straight. Is it really a surprise that Bill Belichick and the Patriots, notorious for scheming to erase an opponent's top offensive weapon, chose to focus on Cooks? He's the Texans' most dangerous playmaker by far - their only one, really - and now he's due to make some plays. Cooks will be facing a Colts defense that's had trouble with small, fast receivers, giving up 4-100-2 to Tyler Lockett in Week 1 and 9-125-2 to Tyler Lockett in Week 5. Regard Cooks as a high-end WR3 this week. He's worth considering in DraftKings contests at an affordable $5,800.

Myles Gaskin Note
Myles Gaskin photo 50. Myles Gaskin RB - MIA (at JAC)
What the heck just happened?! After being one of fantasy football's most consistent RB2s through the first three weeks of the season, Myles Gaskin was eliminated from the offense in week four to the tune of just 12 total snaps. Without any sort of explanation as to why Gaskin was phased out of the offense, fantasy managers were forced to pivot and bench the talented RB due to the matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. What did Gaskin do though? He jumped back up to 37 total snaps in week five and finished the game with five rush attempts for 25 yards and 10 receptions for 74 yards and two touchdowns! After not scoring a single touchdown throughout the entire season up to that point, Gaskin exploded on virtually everyone's benches, and fantasy managers are left scratching their heads trying to discern what Brian Flores is doing with this backfield. It's encouraging to see Gaskin be so heavily utilized as a receiving option out of the backfield - which is where he shines - but there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding Gaskin and his workload moving forward. To go from just 12 snaps in week four to 37 snaps in week five is a massive swing and there's no guarantee now that that usage remains moving forward. With that being said, Jacksonville is absolutely a matchup where we should consider Gaskin for our starting lineups. The Jaguars simply cannot stop anyone on the ground and the scoring opportunities are going to be there for Gaskin. If Malcolm Brown and Salvon Ahmed are going to remain on the sideline for the majority of the game (just 16 combined snaps in week five) then Gaskin is a rock-solid low-end RB2 this week. That's a big question mark right now though.

Damien Harris Note
Damien Harris photo 51. Damien Harris RB - NE (vs . DAL)
Harris was inches away last week from having two touchdowns. Instead, the play was reversed and Harris went from having six additional points to losing two due to a fumble right at the goal-line. Thankfully, he was able to come through for fantasy purposes and find the end zone in a plus matchup before leaving with an injury, which he is still reportedly dealing with this week. We'll need to monitor the practice reports this week for Harris, but if he does play, he's worth starting as a low-end RB2.

Michael Pittman Jr. Note
Michael Pittman Jr. photo 52. Michael Pittman Jr. WR - IND (vs . HOU)
It's been fun to watch Pittman assert himself as the Colts' lead receiver. His 42-yard TD catch against the Ravens on Monday night was a beauty, with Pittman reaching back to pluck an underthrown ball from over the head of a defender who was interfering with him at the time, then keeping his balance and fighting off a tackle attempt as he navigated the final 10 yards to the end zone. Over his last four games, Pittman has averaged 9.8 targets, 6.5 receptions and 84.8 yards. T.Y. Hilton is due back from a neck injury soon, but make no mistake: Pittman is the main man in this WR corps now. He checks in at WR26 in the Week 6 rankings. Pittman's price is up to $5,500 on DraftKings, but he's still a value.

Tee Higgins Note
Tee Higgins photo 53. Tee Higgins WR - CIN (at DET)
After missing two games with a shoulder injury, Higgins returned to action in Week 5 and had 5-32-0 against the Packers on seven targets. The presence of Chase is going to tamp down Higgins' fantasy potential over the long haul, but Higgins is still an exciting young player capable of erupting at any time. Treat him as a high-end WR3 this week. The matchup against Detroit is a good one, but Cincinnati's slow offensive pace (the Bengals rank last in the league in seconds per play) and the possibility of a run-heavy game script keep our Week 6 enthusiasm for Higgins in check.

Adam Thielen Note
Adam Thielen photo 54. Adam Thielen WR - MIN (at CAR)
Thielen and Justin Jefferson both missed practice Wednesday, Thielen with a foot injury, Jefferson with an ankle injury. It might not be a bad idea to leave Thielen on your bench this week even if the foot issue is minor. He faces a Carolina defense that's been tough against the pass. Thielen has been held to 50 receiving yards or fewer in four straight games, and he's averaging just 1.34 yards per route run, almost a full yard lower than Jefferson (2.33). Thielen is ranked WR31 this week and even that feels generous. He'll slide further if there are any questions whatsoever about his medical outlook later in the week.

Melvin Gordon III Note
Melvin Gordon III photo 55. Melvin Gordon III RB - DEN (vs . LV)
The Raiders have had a tough week, with the Jon Gruden email scandal throwing the organization into turmoil. If the Raiders come into Denver flat this weekend, both of the Broncos' running backs could produce satisfying rushing numbers. Williams' carry totals this season have been dictated by game script. When Denver raced out to a 3-0 start, Williams was averaging 13 carries. Over the last two weeks, with Denver playing mostly from behind in losses to the Ravens and Steelers, Williams has averaged 7.5 carries. The rookie managed to make the most of his carries in Week 5, rushing eight times for 61 yards. He's had three receptions in three straight games. Gordon's volume has also waned in the last two weeks. He averaged 14 carries a game in the Broncos' three wins, nine carries in their two losses. Williams is ranked RB20 this week, Gordon RB21. I really like Williams at $5,000 on DraftKings, and Gordon has some GPP appeal at $5,100.

Chase Edmonds Note
Chase Edmonds photo 56. Chase Edmonds RB - ARI (at CLE)
Edmonds was banged up with a shoulder injury coming into last week's contest and he saw a reduced workload as a result. He finished with just 10 total opportunities and it only resulted in 34 total yards, but after being a week removed from the injury, Edmonds should see closer to his normal workload this week and he can be put back into the low-end RB2/high-end RB3 conversation.

Tyler Lockett Note

My concerns for Seattle's receivers aren't nearly as high as the consensus. Geno hasn't started in four seasons, but he's still a very capable QB, and Pittsburgh's pass defense is sub-par at best. Lockett is a top-10 play.

Marvin Jones Jr. Note
Marvin Jones Jr. photo 59. Marvin Jones Jr. WR - JAC (vs . MIA)
Does Meyer really know what he's doing as head coach of the Jaguars? While Jones was on the field for 93% of the snaps in week five, he saw just five targets in a game where the Jaguars were trailing for the majority of the contest. While that's not exactly appalling without context, when you zoom out a bit, it becomes much worse. Jones finished with the same amount of targets last week as Tavon Austin and he finished with three fewer targets than Jamal Agnew. While Agnew and Austin were fine with their opportunity, everyone knows that this is not the way in how you win football games. Featuring Jones gives the Jaguars the best chance to see a victory, but that's apparently not something that this coaching staff understands. This matchup against Miami is an incredibly tantalizing one for opposing WRs so far this season - especially after last week's routing by Tampa Bay - but Jones simply cannot be trusted in starting lineups as anything more than a high-end FLEX play due to his usage. Could Jones come through with a big performance here if he is force-fed targets? Absolutely. Will the Jaguars do that? It's impossible to say.

Jaylen Waddle Note
Jaylen Waddle photo 61. Jaylen Waddle WR - MIA (at JAC)
When Parker was ruled out on Sunday morning, it seemed like it was a foregone conclusion that Jaylen Waddle was going to see an absurd target share in the matchup against the Bucs. It was clear that the Dolphins weren't going to even try to run on the Bucs and there weren't very many receiving options left for Miami that were going to take away opportunities from the speedy wideout. Unfortunately, Waddle accounted for just six of Brissett's 39 pass attempts and he disappointed with just two receptions for 31 yards. After totaling 13 targets from Brissett in week three, Waddle has just seen 10 targets over the past two games combined and he has just 64 receiving yards as a result. Waddle has certainly been a bust in lineups that have played him expecting more than mid-range WR3 production, but we shouldn't move him completely out of our lineups just yet. The Jaguars have been torched by opposing passing attacks this season and there's the possibility that Waddle has a bounce-back game in this one due to Tua coming back into the fold. We can't comfortably predict it based on what we've seen from him over the past couple of weeks, but the upside is there in this game. He can be viewed as a mid-range/low-end WR3 this week.

Odell Beckham Jr. Note
Odell Beckham Jr. photo 62. Odell Beckham Jr. WR - CLE (vs . ARI)
Can someone please explain to me how - in a game where the Browns put up 42 points - OBJ had just three targets? After seeming like he was going to be a key part of this offense after reeling in five receptions in his first game back from injury, Beckham has now had just four receptions over the last two weeks combined. He's seeing players like Higgins and Peoples-Jones outproduce him on his own team and there seems to be no logical explanation for it. As of right now, OBJ has to be downgraded until we see consecutive strong performances from him. In this matchup against Arizona, he's nothing more than a high-end FLEX play.

Jakobi Meyers photo 64. Jakobi Meyers WR - NE (vs . DAL)
Meyers continues to be a key part of this offense in New England, but it's not exactly translating to much from a fantasy perspective. Meyers is bringing a safe floor each week, but he has yet to find the end zone now on 116 career receptions. With Jones playing QB, there's very little upside with Meyers from a fantasy perspective and he's merely just a high-end FLEX play in Full PPR formats at this point.

Jamaal Williams Note
Jamaal Williams photo 65. Jamaal Williams RB - DET (vs . CIN)
Jamaal Williams has averaged 13 carries over Detroit's last three games, but his usage in the passing game has really tapered off. Williams caught 8 of 9 targets in the season opener and 3 of 3 targets in Week 2. Since then he's seen only four targets in three games. Now that he's mostly just a runner, Williams isn't an appealing play against a Bengals defense that PFF grades out as seventh-best against the run. He's ranked RB32.

T.J. Hockenson Note

It's been a rough three-game stretch for Hock after starting the season hot in Weeks 1-2, but there's still hope. Given his high-volume upside, Hockenson should remain locked in as a top-5 option this week, but if he fails to get it done here, it might be time to start bumping him down the rankings.

Patrick's target totals this season: 4, 4, 5, 6, 9. Notice the steady increase? Yeah, we like that. Here are two other think we like: (1) The passer rating on throws intended for Patrick this year is a hearty 135.1; and (2) Patrick hasn't dropped a pass since 2019. This guy is sneaky-good. He's still only a midrange WR4 this week against a Raiders defense that's been tough on wide receivers.

Tyler Boyd Note
Tyler Boyd photo 69. Tyler Boyd WR - CIN (at DET)
In the three games Tee Higgins has played this season, Boyd has averaged 6.0 targets. In the two games Higgins has missed, Boyd has averaged 8.5 targets. Those are small sample sizes, but the numbers are telling. When Boyd had 1,000-yard seasons in 2018 and 2019, finishing WR17 and WR23 in half-point PPR fantasy scoring, he averaged 7.7 and 9.3 targets per game, respectively. He slipped to 7.3 targets per game in 2020 and finished WR35. Further target slippage could push his value out of WR3 range, and the arrival of Ja'Marr Chase certainly jeopardizes Boyd's target share. He's a low-end WR3 this week.

Tony Pollard Note
Tony Pollard photo 71. Tony Pollard RB - DAL (at NE)
Here are Pollard's total touches each week so far this season: 7, 16, 12, 10, and 18. He certainly doesn't have the upside for fantasy that many other options do at the position who see more volume, but he's proving that he's an incredibly consistent option for fantasy lineups. As fantasy managers are scrambling to figure out their RB2 spot every single week, Pollard's actually one of the more reliable and steady options for that spot. He's playing in a high-powered offense, he has a guaranteed role, and we know he has the talent to make those touches count. To prove this point, Pollard leads all RBs in the NFL in Yards Per Carry with 6.4 (min. 50 rush attempts). Based on the way he's been playing recently, he has to be elevated into the weekly high-end RB3 conversation. In this matchup against New England, Pollard's certainly worth starting if you've got him on your roster and you're in need of help at the RB spot.

Laviska Shenault Jr. Note
Laviska Shenault Jr. photo 72. Laviska Shenault Jr. WR - JAC (vs . MIA)
After the injury to DJ Chark, Jaguars OC Darrell Bevell talked about how he expected to have Shenault take on a bigger role offensively. What did that translate to on the field this past week? A 9% target share and just one reception for 58 yards. Additionally, to make matters worse, Shenault watched Agnew and Austin both finish with a combined 13 targets last week. Shenault's an incredibly talented wide receiver that could be a fantasy football superstar if he was used correctly, but the Jaguars seem incapable of understanding who they have with him on their roster. At this point, we cannot trust Shenault anywhere near our starting lineups if Jacksonville is going to feature Agnew and Austin ahead of him. He's worth holding on your bench one more week to see if the coaching staff comes to their senses, but if he doesn't come through this next week, it's time to simply move on.

Mike Gesicki Note
Mike Gesicki photo 74. Mike Gesicki TE - MIA (at JAC)
Gesicki stood to benefit last week in the absence of Parker and he certainly was a focal point of the offense in week five against the Bucs. Gesicki saw the second-most targets on the team with seven, but he only turned it into four receptions for 43 yards. With that being said, fantasy managers shouldn't be upset with this performance when they survey the other options at the TE position. Many other fantasy managers are left dealing with essentially zero points in their starting lineups from other players, but Gesicki at least provided a safe floor. It wasn't quite what we hoped for or expected, but we can't be too upset with it. Looking ahead to next week, Gesicki draws a matchup against the Jaguars' defense that simply cannot slow down anyone. Even though the Dolphins might lean a little more on their run game here than they have in previous weeks, Gesicki is still a solid start as a low-end TE1 due to the potential that he finds the end zone.

Henry Ruggs III Note

A big play waiting to happen, Ruggs is averaging 20.5 yards per catch and 12.5 yards per target. The only problem is that he's averaging 5.6 targets per game. Sure, lid lifters like Ruggs tend to get fewer targets than receivers who work at shallower depths, but wouldn't it be nice if Ruggs could average 6.5 to 7.0 targets a game? Ruggs is a WR4 this week and has a wide range of possible outcomes. At $5,200 on DraftKings, he's a bad investment in cash games but worth considering in GPPs for his splash-play potential.

Noah Fant Note
Noah Fant photo 76. Noah Fant TE - DEN (vs . LV)
This game could set up well for Fant. The Raiders have been stingy to opposing wide receivers this year, but 28.2% of opponents' targets have gone to tight ends, the third-highest rate of TE targets in the league. (Hat tip to J.J. Zachariason of numberFire for that factoid.) The Raiders are giving up 16.1 fantasy points per game to wide receivers and 9.3 to tight ends. Fant could be a focal point of the Broncos' passing attack. He checks in at TE7 this week. Fant is tempting at $4,800 on DraftKings.

Latavius Murray Note
Latavius Murray photo 77. Latavius Murray RB - BAL (vs . LAC)
The game script got out of hand pretty quickly for the Ravens last week and Murray's fantasy value took a hit because of it. He finished with just six rush attempts last week and added two receptions for just 13 yards and no touchdown. We know Murray is a touchdown-or-bust option at the RB position and he's going to hurt your lineup if he doesn't score. To prove this point, here are Murray's fantasy finishes in games where he's scored a touchdown this season: RB26 in week four, RB24 in week two, and RB31 in week one. In games where he hasn't scored, Murray has finished as the RB55 and the RB51. Even when Murray does find the end zone, he's still not a valuable fantasy asset that comes with plenty of upside. He is merely just returning value on where he's being ranked and that's a risky game to play for fantasy managers every single week. The matchup against the Chargers this week is enticing as they're allowing the 6th-most fantasy points to opposing RBs this season, but we still need to view Murray as nothing more than a touchdown-or-bust FLEX play.

AJ Dillon Note
AJ Dillon photo 78. AJ Dillon RB - GB (at CHI)
Dillon's snap share has inched up into the 30%-40% range the last two weeks. After getting eight or fewer touches in his first three games, he's averaged 14 touches in his last two. Dillon saw only two targets his entire rookie season, but he was targeted four times last week and caught all of them for 49 yards and a touchdown. The usage in the passing game is encouraging for Dillon investors, and so are the overall usage trends. Through three games it looked as if Dillon was strictly a backup. But the last two weeks, Dillon has been the 1b to Jones' 1a, playing a role similar to the one Jamaal Williams played for the Packers in recent years. It makes Dillon potentially startable now that the bye weeks have hit. He's my RB38 this week.

Rondale Moore Note
Rondale Moore photo 80. Rondale Moore WR - ARI (at CLE)
WR53, WR5, WR105, WR68, and WR26. These are Moore's fantasy finishes through the first five weeks of the season. He's an incredibly exciting player and a ton of fun to watch with the ball in his hands, but there is absolutely no predicting what type of production we're going to get from him week in and week out. He's slowly starting to see his snap count percentage increase, but it's still just under 50% while Green is seeing around 80% of the snaps in this offense each game. With the injury to Williams at the TE position, and no proven depth behind him, there's the possibility that we see more and more 4WR sets from this offense, but that's not a guarantee. Until we start to witness Moore's snap percentage tick up to around 60%, he's going to be an incredibly volatile FLEX option week in and week out. If you do end up playing Moore in your starting lineup this week, you need to be prepared for the wide range of outcomes.

Mecole Hardman Note
Mecole Hardman photo 81. Mecole Hardman WR - KC (at WAS)
Hardman was able to step up last week in a negative game script and he finished with a shocking 12 targets. He reeled in nine of them for 76 yards, which is a solid fantasy performance, but he was unlikely in starting lineups if you rostered him. This week against Washington, there's the potential that Hardman has a good game, but there's also a strong possibility that he's not needed much here in a game that Kansas City should be able to win fairly easily. If you do plug Hardman into your starting lineup, you're going to be left hoping that he finds the end zone. Otherwise, we could be looking at a disappointing performance. He's a low-end FLEX play in deeper formats only.

Miles Sanders Note
Miles Sanders photo 82. Miles Sanders RB - PHI (vs . TB)
There's some good news to take away from the Eagles' week five game against the Panthers. Miles Sanders saw 16 total touches, which is one more than he had seen the previous two weeks combined. However, Sanders only turned those 16 touches into 51 total yards and - yet again - no score. At this point, there is zero upside to plugging Sanders into your starting lineup any given week. The Eagles offense is struggling to put up points and, when they do, it's going to Hurts on the ground versus the RBs. In a matchup against the Bucs fearsome run defense, Sanders belongs nowhere near your starting lineup this week.

Tyler Higbee Note
Tyler Higbee photo 84. Tyler Higbee TE - LAR (at NYG)
Higbee wasn't exactly - how do we say - involved in week five, but he made his fantasy managers happy by finding the end zone on one of his two targets. Higbee has tremendous value in the red zone with his size and contested catchability, which is something no other receiving option on the Rams has. Stafford's going to continue to look his way time and time again when they're in the red zone and they should be there frequently in this upcoming matchup. He's most likely going to have to find the end zone for you to feel satisfied that you started him, but that's true of so many other TEs in the fantasy football landscape currently. Higbee can be viewed as a low-end TE1.

Renfrow continues to be a model of consistency with at least five catches in every game this season. His yardage totals week by week: 70, 57, 77, 45, 56. That sort of steady, dependable, low-ceiling production becomes more valuable during the bye weeks. However, Renfrow has a tough individual matchup against talented Broncos clot corner Bryce Callahan. Consider Renfrow a midrange WR4 this week.

James Conner Note
James Conner photo 86. James Conner RB - ARI (at CLE)
Conner is certainly a game-script-dependent RB, but how many game scripts are the Cardinals going to be in this year where they're not playing with some sort of big lead? Conner will certainly have to find the end zone to crack the top-24, but there's a very good chance of that happening as he's currently tied for the second-most touchdowns at the position. The Browns have been pretty stingy to opposing RBs so far this season, but they just got gashed by Austin Ekeler this past week for multiple scores. With all that being said, Conner is a mid-range RB3 for this week.

Zach Ertz Note
Zach Ertz photo 87. Zach Ertz TE - ARI (at CLE)
Ertz continued to see more targets than Dallas Goedert in this offense this past week, but he could only reel in one of his six targets for just seven yards. With Hurts' inaccuracy throwing the football, Ertz struggled to do much last week and fantasy managers that took the shot on him were left disappointed. However, the target share is enough to at least remain interested in Ertz from a fantasy perspective. Additionally, it's now known that Goedert is likely going to miss this game due to landing on the COVID-19/Reserve list. This does boost Ertz back into the start-worthy conversation, but we shouldn't be viewing him as a slam-dunk play by any means. He can be viewed as a high-end TE2 this week against Tampa Bay based on volume.

Dalton Schultz Note
Dalton Schultz photo 88. Dalton Schultz TE - DAL (at NE)
p to this point of the season, all the talk with Schultz had centered around the snap and target split with Jarwin in this offense. With Jarwin hanging around and stealing away some of the targets to the TE position, it was difficult to completely buy-in on Schultz from a fantasy perspective. However, we now have the clarity that we've been waiting for and Schultz is a massive beneficiary of it. Last week, Jarwin saw his snap share decrease from 56% and 54% the two weeks prior to just 40% in week five. Additionally, Jarwin failed to register a single target, while Schultz saw eight and led the team. With Jarwin now seemingly out of the picture as a threat to Schultz's receiving workload, there's no reason to not rank Schultz as a TE1 every single week moving forward. In this game against the Patriots, Schultz can be viewed as a low-end TE1.

Hunter Henry Note
Hunter Henry photo 89. Hunter Henry TE - NE (vs . DAL)
Henry has started to steadily see his target share increase in this offense as the season has progressed and he's becoming a viable fantasy asset because of it. He's on the field for the majority of the snaps and he's being sent out as a receiver 27 routes per game on average, which is leading to plenty of opportunity. While he took advantage of a plus matchup last week in Houston, there's no reason at this point that we shouldn't view Henry as a mid-range TE2 every single week. Unless we see Smith suddenly become heavily involved in this offense, Henry should be a safe option moving forward.

Robby Anderson Note
Robby Anderson photo 90. Robby Anderson WR - CAR (vs . MIN)
It's been a disappointing season for Anderson, and there's little hope for a turnaround now that Christian McCaffrey is on the way back from a hamstring injury to siphon targets away from other pass catchers. With CMC injured for most of the 2020 season, Anderson had 95 catches for 1,096 yards and three touchdowns. The secret to his success was a major role change. Anderson's average depth of target in his final two seasons with the Jets hovered around 15 yards. Last year, his aDOT was 9.7 yards. Life as a short-area receiver suited him. But Anderson's aDOT is back up to 15.2 yards this season, and he's caught just 41.4% of his targets. Anderson is a low-end WR4 for now, but I might move him out of the top 50 at receiver if McCaffrey is cleared to play.

Christian Kirk Note
Christian Kirk photo 92. Christian Kirk WR - ARI (at CLE)
After completely disappearing in week four against the Rams, Kirk came back to life and saw a 17.9% target share in week five. While this only turned into 39 total receiving yards, it is encouraging to see Kirk's involvement move back up. With that being said, there's no predictability with the other receiving weapons in this offense after Hopkins. With the injury to Maxx Williams, we could see Kirk's target share increase slightly, but that's too much of a risk to take in our starting lineups this week. Kirk is nothing more than a low-end FLEX play that has the possibility of completely falling flat.

Amon-Ra St. Brown Note
Amon-Ra St. Brown photo 95. Amon-Ra St. Brown WR - DET (vs . CIN)
The rookie from USC has produced 6-70-0 and 7-65-0 over his last two games. He saw eight targets in both of those games, and with Quintez Cephus breaking his collarbone in Week 5, the steady diet of targets should continue for St. Brown. He falls just outside of WR4 range this week, but I do think St. Brown has some appeal as a $4,200 supersaver option on DraftKings. With Cephus on the shelf, St. Brown is the only fantasy-viable receiver the Lions have at the moment. Tyrell Williams has been on IR with a concussion since Week 2. He's eligible to return this week, but Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports that Williams is still dealing with concussion symptoms and not close to returning.

A.J. Green Note
A.J. Green photo 96. A.J. Green WR - ARI (at CLE)
Going into last week, all the conversation had been centered around how Green might be the most consistent receiving option on the Cardinals. Well, despite playing 80% of the snaps in week five, Green saw just two targets and he reeled in one of them for 13 yards. We thought that we had clarity on what the offensive target distribution was going to look like here in Arizona, but now it's back to the drawing board. At this point, Hopkins is the only safe WR to plug into your starting lineup. Otherwise, every other option comes with a wide range of outcomes. Green is outside start-worthy consideration this week.

Jared Cook Note
Jared Cook photo 97. Jared Cook TE - LAC (at BAL)
Cook has certainly had an up-and-down year so far, but that's not atypical of fantasy football TEs. His performance in week five wasn't what fantasy managers were hoping for when they plugged him into their starting lineups, but this offense is high-powered enough that he remains a worthy start in fantasy leagues every single time. The upside is there, but we just might not get the consistency that we want from him week in and week out. Unless you have a more trustworthy and consistent option at the TE position on your fantasy roster, Cook's still worth starting every week. We just have to live with the wide range of outcomes. He can be viewed as a high-end TE2 this week.

Seals-Jones has emerged in Logan Thomas' absence as a reliable receiving option for Heinicke over the middle of the field. Jones saw a 20% target share last week and it resulted in a solid 5-41-0 stat line. While we shouldn't view him as a trustworthy option in single TE formats, if you play in TE-premium leagues or deeper formats, Seals-Jones is worth considering due to the projected game script and the target volume he could see in this game. However, he's nothing more than a low-end TE2.

Kenneth Gainwell Note
Kenneth Gainwell photo 102. Kenneth Gainwell RB - PHI (vs . TB)
Kenneth Gainwell has had some moments so far this season where he's been relevant, but the parallels to Nyheim Hines in Indianapolis are uncanny. Hines has had moments of exploding and putting up dominant performances - like Gainwell has done this season - but trying to predict when those happen is an absolute nightmare for fantasy football. In a matchup that the Eagles trailed for the majority of the game, Gainwell would be expected to see an uptick in usage as the pass-catching compliment out of the backfield, right? Unfortunately, Gainwell went from nine touches in week four to just three in week five. There's no predicting when or how Gainwell will be used in this backfield and it's honestly not worth the headache. If there's a more proven asset available on your waiver wire this week, it's fine to move on from Gainwell and let someone else deal with trying to predict when he'll be relevant for fantasy.

Credit Pascal for consistency: He's had 31 to 48 receiving yards in all five of his games this year. But after scoring three touchdowns in his first two games, he's endured a three-game TD drought. There's just not enough here for a fantasy manager to hang his or her hat on, and the impending return of T.Y. Hilton from a neck injury will make Pascal droppable in many of the leagues where he's rostered.

Van Jefferson Note
Van Jefferson photo 106. Van Jefferson WR - LAR (at NYG)
Van Jefferson had been emerging as a viable fantasy option in this offense throughout the first four weeks of the season, but with Woods coming back to life and commanding the target share last week, Jefferson's production fell off a cliff. He is still seeing some deep targets, which will have value and will hit from time to time, but those are better DFS bets than season-long investments. Jefferson's merely just a bench stash in deeper formats for the time being. DeSean Jackson was able to make a big play last week against the Seahawks, but he is merely just a deep threat for this Rams offense that they'll bring in occasionally. There's very little predictability with Jackson's usage and he shouldn't be considered for starting lineups in any format.

Dan Arnold Note
Dan Arnold photo 107. Dan Arnold TE - JAC (vs . MIA)
Arnold came out in his first game as a Jaguar and showed enough flashes to hint that there might be something here with his fit in this Jacksonville offense. We just needed to wait and see if Arnold would acclimate to the offense over time before we considered him for fantasy lineups. That acclimation period was a lot shorter than many were expecting though and Arnold was a fantastic fantasy asset in week five against the Titans. Arnold ran 30 Receiving Routes last week and finished with six receptions for 64 yards on a shocking eight targets. At the TE position in fantasy football, so many managers are left chasing the touchdown production or ridiculous efficiency from a yardage perspective. However, we need to chase after volume way more than we do. If Arnold is going to have a clear role in this offense that is going to be playing from behind more often than they're not, he's absolutely in the starting conversation. This week against Miami, Arnold can be viewed as a mid-range TE2 with upside.

This week's matchup vs. the Panthers is tough, but Osborn will be worth considering at a bargain-bin price of $3,500 on DraftKings if either Justin Jefferson or Adam Thielen (or both) can't go in Week 6. Both receivers missed practice Wednesday. Osborn has 20-233-1 this season but has been held to less than 30 receiving yards in three straight games.

McKissic played 41% of the snaps in week five, but it only resulted in three total touches and seven total yards. The veteran RB will have big games here or there, but it's nearly impossible to predict when exactly those are going to take place. Even in a plus matchup like this one against the Chiefs, McKissic needs to remain on your bench or on your league's waiver wire.

Randall Cobb Note
Randall Cobb photo 114. Randall Cobb WR - GB (at CHI)
Fans of the Bears and Packers will forever remember Cobb's game-winning TD catch against the Bears in the final game of the 2013 regular season, allowing the 8-7-1 Packers to squeak into the playoffs and knocking out the 8-8 Bears. After going for 69 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Steelers in Week 4, Cobb had a 2-30-0 day against the Bengals in Week 5. Davante Adams takes up so much of the oxygen in the Green Bay passing attack that there might not be enough left for a secondary target. Cobb had six targets against Pittsburgh two weeks ago, and the injured Marquez Valdes-Scantling had seven targets in Week 1, but no other Green Bay receiver has seen more than four targets in a game this season. Even with the bye weeks upon us, Cobb is merely a desperation play in fantasy.

The most pleasant TE surprise of the 2020 fantasy season has been held under 10 yards in four of his five games this season and is currently the TE33 in fantasy scoring, just behind MyCole Pruitt. In Week 6, Tonyan faces a Bears defense that is allowing 4.8 fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. Consider him a mid-range TE2 at best.

Marshall's scant reception and yardage totals belie healthy snap counts and route totals. Sam Darnold simply isn't looking in the rookie's direction very often. Marshall has 13-107-0 on 20 targets. Keep him stashed if you can, but keep him out of your lineup for now.

Consider Conklin a midrange TE2 based on the assumption Jefferson and Thielen will play and adjust accordingly.

Rashod Bateman Note
Rashod Bateman photo 119. Rashod Bateman WR - BAL (vs . LAC)
Bateman appears to be set to make his NFL debut this week against the Chargers and this should only help out the Ravens offense and Jackson. Bateman's a sure-handed receiver that's going to be able to operate underneath and help move the chains. He has the potential to make an impact for fantasy football down the line, but it's unlikely to happen here right out of the gate. We should pick up Bateman in our fantasy football leagues if we have the space on our bench, but we can't trust him in our starting lineups just yet.

David Njoku Note
David Njoku photo 121. David Njoku TE - CLE (vs . ARI)
Njoku had a monstrous performance in week five as he reeled in all seven of his targets for a whopping 149 yards and a score...and he most likely did it on your bench or your league's waiver wire. Up until last week, Njoku had done next to nothing from a fantasy perspective. He had a total of just 10 targets through the previous four weeks and there was no reason to roster him outside of deep Dynasty leagues. While there's the potential that Njoku comes out in week six against the Cardinals and puts together another decent performance, there's the more likely scenario that he goes back to seeing just two or three targets. It's probably best to leave Njoku on your bench until we start to see him string together consecutive strong performances.

Here's the good news, folks. Smith was on the field for 62% of the snaps in week five! The bad news is that he ran just six receiving routes. Yes, you read that correctly. With four offensive line starters out last week against Houston, Smith was asked to stay in and block a heavy amount, which killed his fantasy output. While it's baffling why the Patriots paid Smith $50 million to not be used as a receiving threat in this offense, we have to face the reality of the situation and recognize that it's simply unlikely to change. Smith is now droppable in redraft leagues if there's a better option available.

Alie-Cox is starting to become a thing. After scoring a pair of touchdowns in Week 4, he had three catches for 50 against the Ravens in Week 5. Although he played 19 fewer snaps than fellow Colts TE Jack Doyle Monday night in Baltimore, Alie-Cox out-targeted Doyle 4-1. The Colts are about to host the Texans, who are giving up a league-high 13.6 points per game to opposing tight ends. Alie-Cox is a mid-range TE2 this week and usable if byes or injuries leave you short at the TE position.

Gordon is currently rostered in 32% of Yahoo leagues at the time of writing. However, he only played nine total snaps in week five against the Bills. There's a possibility that Gordon develops into more of a focal point for the Chiefs offense as the season progresses, but that's not a guarantee. Even further from a guarantee is the possibility that Gordon turns into a viable weekly starter for fantasy lineups at any point this season. If you have Gordon on your roster and you need someone who is actually contributing right now, you can drop him onto your waiver wire. Otherwise, he's merely just a bench stash in hopes that he sees his snap count dramatically increase.

With McKinnon's injury history being taken into account too, it's probably wise to let him sit on your bench for this first week to see what exactly the carry split looks like in this backfield. He shouldn't be considered for starting lineups outside of a desperation play.

Giovani Bernard was able to fight through injury to play last week and he was able to cash in and find the end zone as a receiver. However, Fournette appears to have completely taken over this job in Tampa, which means that there's very little leftover opportunity for Bernard. He can't be started in any format at this point. Ronald Jones has now seen his snaps steadily decrease from 26 in week two all the way to just 10 total snaps in week five against Miami. Fournette has completely secured this job, which now puts Jones into the insurance-RB conversation at best. If you need to move on from him to be able to add an RB who is set to see an increased workload in week six and who can help your lineup right away, you can do so confidently.
