Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 7 Rankings

Derrick Henry Note
Derrick Henry photo 1. Derrick Henry RB - TEN (vs . KC)
The guess here is that younger fantasy managers have a greater appreciation of Henry than older fantasy managers. The grizzled fantasy veterans who were playing in the early 2000s experienced something similar with Marshall Faulk, Priest Holmes, and LaDainian Tomlinson, giants of the era who routinely produced mammoth seasons and carried fantasy teams to championships almost singlehandedly. But there have been few saviors at the RB position in the generation since, so perhaps the young'uns are more in awe of Henry's greatness than the graybeards are. At the moment, the point differential between Henry and the RB2 in half-point PPR fantasy scoring is greater than the pint differential between the RB2 (Austin Ekeler) and the RB16 (Antonio Gibson). This week, Henry should feast on a Chiefs defense that ranks 31st in DVOA against the run and is giving up 5.2 yards per carry.

Tyreek Hill Note
Tyreek Hill photo 2. Tyreek Hill WR - KC (at TEN)
A quad injury limited Hill to a season-low 47 offensive snaps last weekend, but he accomplished a great deal in his smaller role, catching 9 of 12 targets for 76 yards and a touchdown. This looks like a great spot for Hill, with the Titans allowing 30.4 fantasy points per game to wide receivers, the second-highest total in the league. Tennessee has given up 10 touchdowns to WRs. If he's active, you're certainly playing him in season-long leagues. But with the soft-tissue injury looming as a potential issue, I don't know if I can bring myself to spend $8,600 on Hill in DraftKings contests.

Davante Adams Note
Davante Adams photo 3. Davante Adams WR - GB (vs . WAS)
What happens when the NFL's best receiver encounters arguably the league's worst defensive backfield? We're about to find out. Adams is leading the league in receiving yards, averaging 111.3 per game. His 46 receptions have him tied for the NFL lead, and he's second in targets with 66. Washington, meanwhile has allowed 1,857 passing yards and 16 TD passes, both league highs. This is an absolute smash matchup, and Adams sits atop the WR rankings this week. At $8,900 on DraftKings, he's certainly not cheap, but you could also make the case that you can't afford not to pay up for him.

Aaron Jones Note
Aaron Jones photo 4. Aaron Jones RB - GB (vs . WAS)
Jones' usage has been fairly predictable this season not counting a Week 1 blowout loss to the Saints where the Packers held the ball infrequently and sent starters to the bench early. Since Week 2, Jones has had 13-17 carries and 2-6 catches every week. He's the RB6 in fantasy scoring and the RB5 if you take away Week 1. That dependable usage and a favorable home matchup with Washington make him a high-end RB1. He's also a core cash-game pillar at a price of $7,500 on DraftKings. The Packers have ramped up Dillon's usage in recent weeks. He's played at least 33% of the Packers' offensive snaps in each of the last three weeks, averaging 11.3 carries over that span. Against a mediocre Washington run defense that's yielding 21.7 fantasy points per game to opposing RBs, Dillon checks in as a playable midrange RB3 in a bye-strewn week.

Jonathan Taylor Note
Jonathan Taylor photo 5. Jonathan Taylor RB - IND (at SF)
It wasn't looking good for Taylor from a fantasy perspective through the first half of last week, but the Colts remembered that they had him on their roster in the second half and he went ballistic. Taylor rumbled for 145 yards on the ground and two touchdowns and he helped carry the Colts to a dominant win over the Texans. JT reminded us that he's a truly special RB when he is given the smallest sliver of daylight as one of his touchdowns was the result of a 83-yard run in which he hit 20.5 MPH according to Next Gen Stats. He'll have a more difficult time breaking free for long runs here against the 49ers defense that's allowing just 77 rushing yards per game to opposing RBs, but that doesn't mean that we should move Taylor out of our top-5 RBs on the week. Fire him up with full confidence here.

Darrell Henderson Jr. Note
Darrell Henderson Jr. photo 6. Darrell Henderson Jr. RB - LAR (vs . DET)
There are only six other RBs in the NFL right now that are averaging more fantasy points per game than Henderson. While that's extremely impressive on a surface level, it's even more impressive when you take into account that Henderson has done that against rock-solid defenses like Chicago, Indianapolis, and Arizona. He's faced some easier matchups the past couple of weeks against Seattle and the Giants and we're seeing what that means for fantasy purposes as he's delivered some big performances. Looking forward, Henderson now gets to take on the Lions defense that is allowing the most fantasy points to opposing RBs so far this season with an average of 25.2 points per game. Additionally, he gets to take on the Houston Texans defense in week eight and then the Tennessee Titans defense in week nine. The schedule has dramatically opened up for the talented RB and there's a very good chance that he wins people championships this year with how well he's playing. He belongs in your lineup this week as a top-5 option.
16 hours ago
Alvin Kamara Note
Alvin Kamara photo 7. Alvin Kamara RB - NO (at SEA)
It's certainly been an interesting year for Kamara. He's had games where he's been used similarly to Derrick Henry with a massive workload on the ground and then other games we've seen the usage from him that we've become familiar with in previous seasons. Either way, we know that he's going to be given plenty of work each and every week and that's all we should care about as fantasy managers. With his skill set and talent, he has the ability to translate that volume into top-5 fantasy production every single week. In a matchup against the Seahawks defense that's allowing the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing RBs this year, AK's a top-tier option.
16 hours ago
Cooper Kupp Note
Cooper Kupp photo 8. Cooper Kupp WR - LAR (vs . DET)
Earlier on this season, I highlighted Kupp's 17-game pace and waved it off as saying there's no way he actually hits those absurd numbers. However, now I might actually believe that he can break records this year with this type of usage. Kupp is now on pace for 187 targets, 130 receptions, 1,850 receiving yards, and 20 receiving touchdowns. Yes, you read those numbers correctly. The scariest part about all of this too is that arguably the toughest part of the schedule is now over for the Rams and they have some generous matchups on the schedule coming up. Kupp is expected to draw coverage this week from AJ Parker, who is allowing a 88% catch rate so far this season and has a poor PFF Grade of 42.7. There's more than a 75% chance that Kupp finishes this week as the WR1 in fantasy football.

Joe Mixon Note
Joe Mixon photo 9. Joe Mixon RB - CIN (at BAL)
Backups Samaje Perine and Chris Evans have chimed in with notable performances in recent weeks, but Mixon is still the straw that stirs the drink in the Bengals' backfield. He's averaging 18 carries a game and ranks fourth in the league in rushing with 480 yards. The Ravens have been a middling fantasy matchup for opposing running backs this season, but they've had Mixon's number throughout his career. In seven career games against Baltimore, Mixon is averaging 55.1 yards per game and 3.2 yards per carry, and he's scored only one TD.
4 hours ago
Travis Kelce Note
Travis Kelce photo 10. Travis Kelce TE - KC (at TEN)
Kelce was bothered by a stinger in Week 6, but "bothered" is a relative term for the star tight end, who still managed to finish with 8-99-0 on 11 targets. He once again leads all tight ends in fantasy scoring, and - news flash - he's ranked as the TE1 this week. Not surprisingly he's a pricey $7,600 on DraftKings but is still one of the top values at the position.
4 hours ago
Leonard Fournette Note
Leonard Fournette photo 11. Leonard Fournette RB - TB (vs . CHI)
It's difficult to argue with the fact that Fournette is now the lead back for the Bucs, one of the best offenses in the league. He's dominated the snap count and opportunity share in this backfield over the past few weeks and he's rising up rest-of-season rankings as a result. Looking ahead to week seven, Fournette belongs in starting lineups simply due to the lack of other proven options at the position due to bye weeks, injuries, etc. but he might not as much upside as we would hope for in this matchup against the Bears. Chicago has kept opposing RBs somewhat in check so far this season and they're only allowing 15.7 fantasy points per game to opposing RBs. Fournette should see enough volume to be a reliable high-end RB2 this week, but he'll need to cash in and find the end zone to crack the top-8 at the position.
16 hours ago
Damien Harris Note
Damien Harris photo 12. Damien Harris RB - NE (vs . NYJ)
At the time of writing, there's no clarity as to whether or not Harris is going to even suit up for this game. He's been battling a rib injury over the past couple of weeks, but he has been able to fight through it up to this point. Even with this injury, Harris remains a special player. There are some runs that he has where he looks like he's shot out of a cannon and he's clearly the best RB that the Patriots have on their roster. If Harris suits up in this matchup, he's absolutely worth playing as a potential high-end RB2 simply based on the other available options this week. The Jets are allowing the second most fantasy points to opposing RBs this season and Harris has already found the end zone once against them this year. There's a high likelihood that he can do it again in this one if he's healthy. We'll continue to update as we get more injury news.
17 hours ago
Josh Jacobs Note
Josh Jacobs photo 13. Josh Jacobs RB - LV (vs . PHI)
Jacobs has continued with his struggles last season with efficiency - he has just a 3.2 Yards Per Attempt on the season - but he's continued to find the end zone at an impressive rate. Jacobs is now tied for the third-most rushing TDs in the NFL despite having only played four games this year. He's bringing a safe floor with his guaranteed volume each week and then is also bringing plenty of upside with his propensity for crossing over the goal line. In a matchup against the Eagles defense that is allowing the 7th-most fantasy points to opposing RBs, Jacobs should be viewed as a rock-solid low-end RB1/high-end RB2.
16 hours ago
D.J. Moore Note
D.J. Moore photo 14. D.J. Moore WR - CAR (at NYG)
The Panthers' passing slump over the last two weeks has affected Moore. He had been off to a blistering start, ranking as the WR4 through four games with 30-398-3 on 43 targets. Over the last two weeks, Moore has 10-115-0 on 20 targets. Still, he has a robust 29.4% target share so far and ranks fifth in the league in air yards per game, so Moore's usage is attractive. He ranks as the WR5 against a Giants defense that has allowed the 10th-highest fantasy point total to opposing wide receivers.
4 hours ago
DeAndre Hopkins Note
DeAndre Hopkins photo 15. DeAndre Hopkins WR - ARI (vs . HOU)
Ladies and gentlemen, it's the revenge game for Nuk! There has to be some part of Hopkins that's still seething over the fact that he was traded to Arizona for an aging veteran RB and a 2nd-round pick, right? We could see Hopkins go nuclear in this matchup as a way to send a message to the Texans franchise that they were wrong to trade him away for next to nothing - as if they didn't know that already. Coming off of a two-touchdown performance, there are reasons to believe that Nuk can do that same thing here in this one. Fire him up as a top-5 option.
16 hours ago
Ja'Marr Chase Note
Ja'Marr Chase photo 16. Ja'Marr Chase WR - CIN (at BAL)
Chase's rookie season has been so good that it qualified as a mild disappointment when he "only" had a 4-97-0 game against the Lions last week. Chase currently ranks WR5 in fantasy scoring. He's averaging a preposterous 13.5 yards per target, trailing only Henry Ruggs (13.9), among receivers with at least 25 targets. Start Chase with confidence against the Ravens this week, and consider paying the $6,200 freight for him in DraftKings contests.
4 hours ago
Deebo Samuel Note
Deebo Samuel photo 17. Deebo Samuel WR - SF (vs . IND)
It's been a week since we've seen Samuel on the field, but it's important to remember just how dominant he has been up to this point of the season. Samuel is currently averaging 6.2 receptions, 109.6 receiving yards, and .6 touchdowns per contest this year and he needs to be in your starting lineup, no questions asked. Samuel has the toughest matchup on paper this week against the Colts with Rock Ya-Sin, but we know that the 49ers move Samuel all over the formation and get the ball in his hands in creative ways. Fire him up this week as a low-end WR1 with upside.
16 hours ago
Calvin Ridley Note
Calvin Ridley photo 18. Calvin Ridley WR - ATL (at MIA)
It seems only a matter of time before the runway is clear for Ridley to take off. He's averaged 10.5 targets in his four games, but he's averaging just 6.1 yards per target, well below his career average of 9.0. There's a correction coming, and it could happen this week, particularly if Dolphins CBs Xavien Howard and Byron Jones remain sidelined after being out with injuries last week. He's my WR7, though I'll probably drop him a spot or two if Howard and Jones both play. I wish Ridley were a bit cheaper than $6,600 on DraftKings, but I may very well throw him into one of my lineups even without a discount.
4 hours ago
Chuba Hubbard Note
Chuba Hubbard photo 19. Chuba Hubbard RB - CAR (at NYG)
In the three games Christian McCaffrey has missed so far, Hubbard's fantasy finishes in half-point PPR scoring have been RB36, RB18 and RB21. Not great, but the usage over that three-game span is encouraging: 17.7 carries per game and 3.7 targets per game. That sort of workload could pay off this week against a Giants defense that gave up 24.2 fantasy points to Ezekiel Elliott in Week 5 and 23.7 to Darrell Henderson in Week 6. He's a low-end RB1 this week and a good DraftKings value at $6,100.
4 hours ago
D'Andre Swift Note
D'Andre Swift photo 20. D'Andre Swift RB - DET (at LAR)
Through six weeks of the 2021 NFL season, Swift is second in the NFL at the RB position in targets with 42. His usage on the ground leaves a lot to be desired, but he continues to come through for fantasy managers due to his workload through the air as the Lions play from behind. Due to the fact that Detroit has yet to play a single offensive snap this season with a lead, it's likely that Swift's high target volume is here to stay. Up to this point of the season, Swift is averaging seven targets per contest and nearly 50 receiving yards. That volume more than makes up for his lack of production on the ground and it's especially valuable in any type of PPR format. This week against the Rams, we shouldn't expect much from Swift on the ground, but we know that the Lions are going to be playing from behind for the majority of the game. We could see Swift potentially push 10 targets in this one and he's a rock-solid RB1 start because of it.
16 hours ago
Darrel Williams Note
Darrel Williams photo 21. Darrel Williams RB - KC (at TEN)
With Clyde Edwards-Helaire sidelined with a sprained MCL, Williams took over as the lead RB and paid off for his fantasy stakeholders, with 21-62-2 rushing and 3-27-0 receiving, good for an RB6 finish on the week. Williams served as a true workhorse, playing 59 snaps - 10 more than Edwards-Helaire had played in any game this season. With CEH out again, Williams is a must-start against a middle-of-the-road Tennessee run defense. He ranks RB8 this week and is an excellent DraftKings value at $5,800.

Cordarrelle Patterson Note
Cordarrelle Patterson photo 22. Cordarrelle Patterson WR,RB - ATL (at MIA)
Patterson played a season-high 46 snaps in the Falcons' Week 5 win over the Jets in London - 20 more than his previous high this season. Is that a sign that the Falcons are all in on Paterson as a major driver of their offense? Perhaps they should be. Patterson has been terrific as a pass-catcher, lining up all over the formation - in the backfield, in the slot, out wide - and catching 25 of 31 targets for 295 yards and four touchdowns. He's also been solid as a runner, with 41 carries for 173 yards and a touchdown. He's currently the RB3 in fantasy scoring on a per-game basis, and while it's probably unrealistic to expect that pace to continue, C-Patt is an automatic start in all season-long leagues. He checks in as the RB7 in this week's rankings (and as the WR14 if your league only grants him WR eligibility).

Terry McLaurin Note
Terry McLaurin photo 23. Terry McLaurin WR - WAS (at GB)
Packers CB Jaire Alexander is unlikely to return from a shoulder injury this week, which is good news for McLaurin investors. The Green Bay pass defense has managed to stay afloat without Alexander, but the Packers don't have another cornerback capable of keeping a stud like McLaurin under wraps. The greater concern is the hamstring injury McLaurin has been dealing with, so check his status throughout the week. After ranking as the WR6 through the first four weeks of the season, McLaurin has 8-74-0 over the last two weeks. He checks in at WR9 in the rankings, though I'm shying away from him in DFS due to the uncertainty involved with a soft-tissue injury.
4 hours ago
A.J. Brown Note
A.J. Brown photo 24. A.J. Brown WR - TEN (vs . KC)
It had been a slow start to the season for Brown, who was quiet in Weeks 1-2, sustained a hamstring injury in Week 3, missed Week 4, and did little in Week 5. He was held without a catch in the first half of the Titans' Week 6 game against the Bills, but then AJB came alive in the second half, catching seven passes for 91 yards. Should we be ready to trust Brown again? The verdict here: yes. A game matchup with the Chiefs could turn into a potential track meet, and with Julio Jones continuing to deal with a hammy problem, Brown should see plenty of targets in Week 7. He's my WR13 this week, and I think he's a terrific DraftKings value at $6,300.
4 hours ago
Mike Evans Note
Mike Evans photo 25. Mike Evans WR - TB (vs . CHI)
Just when we thought we were past Evans being a volatile fantasy asset, he disappointed majorly in week six with a 2-27-0 stat line. With Brown and Godwin in the lineup and healthy, there's always the possibility that Brady will lock onto one of the other receiving options over Evans and feature them any given game. While Evans still has week-winning upside - and he should remain in starting lineups as a top-24 option as a result - we can't view him as a locked-in WR1 moving forward. We'll simply have to learn to live with the ups-and-downs as fantasy managers. He can be viewed as a high-end WR2 this week.
16 hours ago
Darren Waller Note
Darren Waller photo 26. Darren Waller TE - LV (vs . PHI)
Are we getting the upside from Waller that we thought we had in week one where he saw 19 targets? Absolutely not. However, there's a lot to be said for consistency at the TE position in fantasy right now. Waller has yet to finish a game with less than 45 receiving yards and he's averaging 6.8 targets per contest after removing week one from the equation. The week-winning upside might not be there most weeks, but he still belongs in the top-tier of fantasy TEs due to the high floor he brings week after week. Against the Eagles defense that is allowing 9.7 fantasy points on average to opposing TEs, Waller's a top-5 option yet again.
16 hours ago
D.K. Metcalf Note
D.K. Metcalf photo 27. D.K. Metcalf WR - SEA (vs . NO)
Despite Smith struggling to push the ball deep downfield, Metcalf was able to at least provide a solid floor for fantasy managers in week six with a 6-58-0 stat line. All upside for Metcalf has been virtually erased without Russell Wilson in the lineup, but he should still dominate targets as the WR1 in this offense. This is a tougher matchup against the Saints defense that's allowing just 22.6 fantasy points per game on average to opposing WRs, but there should be enough volume there for us to view Metcalf as a safe WR2.
16 hours ago
Mark Andrews Note
Mark Andrews photo 28. Mark Andrews TE - BAL (vs . CIN)
Since Week 2, Andrews has led all tight ends in fantasy scoring. He's had three TD catches in his last two games, and he's averaged 97.8 receiving yards over his last four. Andrews is the TE2 in the rankings this week, but at $6,000 on DraftKings he's a better value than Kelce at $7,600.
4 hours ago
Chris Godwin Note
Chris Godwin photo 29. Chris Godwin WR - TB (vs . CHI)
Outside of week one, Godwin has yet to deliver a massive fantasy performance that helps push fantasy lineups over the top. However, he has been one of the most consistent WR2s in all of fantasy football so far this year. Godwin's 5-43-0 stat line from week six is his lowest statistical output of the season, but that doesn't exactly crush your lineup if you started him, especially in Full PPR formats. We might not get the week-winning upside from Godwin that we do with Brown or Evans, but we can at least feel confident when we start Godwin that he's not going to crush our lineup. He has a favorable matchup on the field this week against Xavier Crawford, who is allowing a 75% catch rate this season and 1.16 Yards Per Route Covered. We should view him as a safe mid-range WR2 this week.
16 hours ago
Marquise Brown Note
Marquise Brown photo 30. Marquise Brown WR - BAL (vs . CIN)
There's no reason for Brown investors to panic just yet, but it's at least worth noting that rookie Rashod Bateman has six targets last weekend in his NFL debut - he missed the first five games of the season while recovering from a core injury - while Brown had five targets. Granted, it's a narrow margin and a small sample size in a game where the Ravens led comfortably throughout and Lamar Jackson attempted only 27 passes. Brown is the WR6 in fantasy scoring, so it might seem silly to worry about a rookie encroaching on his fantasy value, but, well ... Bateman is good. I don't think Brown's 4-35-0 stat line in Week 6 is a reason for panic, but beware the possibility that Bateman might steal some of Brown's value. Brown is nevertheless a solid play for Week 6, checking in at WR16.
4 hours ago
James Conner Note
James Conner photo 31. James Conner RB - ARI (vs . HOU)
Are there any leagues where you have Conner on your roster that you're contemplating not starting him this week? Everything is lining up here for Conner to have a monstrous performance. The Cardinals are 17.5-point favorites at the time of writing, Chase Edmonds doesn't appear to be at 100%, and the Cardinals are most likely going to be running the ball for the entire second half. We should see Conner get plenty of work this week against an abysmal defense that is bleeding fantasy points to opposing RBs and he's going to get goal-line opportunities. Normally, we don't want to rely on Conner over more proven options in our starting lineup, but with so many RBs currently on byes and injured, Conner should be viewed as a mid-range RB2 this week.
16 hours ago
Antonio Gibson Note
Antonio Gibson photo 32. Antonio Gibson RB - WAS (at GB)
Gibson's status is in question this week. He has a stress fracture in his shin and was shuffled in and out of action last week against the Chiefs, resulting in a disappointing 10-44-0 rushing day against a bad Chiefs run defense. Washington draws another favorable running-game matchup this week, taking on a Packers run D that ranks 30th in Football Outsiders' DVOA metric. If Gibson suits up, you're probably compelled to play him in the Week 7 bye-pocalypse. But of course, there's a chance that the Football Team dials back his snaps again after limiting Gibson to a 39% snap share last week.
4 hours ago
Courtland Sutton Note
Courtland Sutton photo 33. Courtland Sutton WR - DEN (at CLE)
Sutton leads all NFL pass catchers in air yards, but will he still play an alpha receiver role for the Broncos once Jerry Jeudy returns from a high-ankle sprain? Week 8 seems like a probable return date for Jeudy, so Sutton has at least one more week left as the undisputed boss of the Denver WR corps. Sutton has racked up 25 targets over the Broncos' last two games and has 15-214-2 over that span. He has a tricky matchup this week against Browns CB Denzel Ward, but as solid as Ward is, he can't be considered a true lockdown cover man yet. Consider Sutton a midrange WR2 this week.
5 hours ago
Antonio Brown Note
Antonio Brown photo 34. Antonio Brown WR - TB (vs . CHI)
If we remove the fluke performance from Brown in week two against Atlanta, his lowest statistical output this season has been his 7-63-0 stat line against New England in week four. Brown's been a revelation for fantasy managers so far this season and he's coming through with big performance after big performance. Over just the past two weeks combined, AB has 16 catches for 217 yards and three touchdowns. He's now moved comfortably into the mid-range WR2 conversation and there's the possibility that he's actually the WR to roster in Tampa Bay. Fire him up with full confidence this week against the Chicago Bears in a game that Tampa Bay is supposed to win pretty handily.
16 hours ago
Elijah Mitchell Note
Elijah Mitchell photo 35. Elijah Mitchell RB - SF (vs . IND)
Before the bye week, we saw Mitchell come back into the lineup and completely dominate the RB touches in this backfield. While it didn't lead to much volume, that was with Lance in the lineup and dominating the carry share. With Jimmy G at QB this week - most likely - we should see the 49ers lean into their run game again with Mitchell and he could easily see 15+ touches in this game. The matchup isn't ideal as the Colts are allowing the second-fewest fantasy points to opposing RBs, but the volume should be there. He can be viewed as a mid-range RB2 this week.
16 hours ago
Jaylen Waddle Note
Jaylen Waddle photo 36. Jaylen Waddle WR - MIA (vs . ATL)
Waddle and Tua Tagovailoa re-established their chemistry in London last week, with Waddle catching 10 of 13 targets for 70 yards and two touchdowns. That works out to an unimpressive 5.38 yards per target, but Waddle investors are nonetheless thrilled with that sort of target count and don't mind that his average depth of target this season is just 5.4 yards. The anticipated return of DeVante Parker from shoulder and hamstring injuries could siphon a few targets away from Waddle, but that's no reason to shy away from Waddle. The rookie has an appealing matchup against Falcons slot corner Richie Grant and should again be a favorite Tua target. He checks in at WR20 in the rankings. Waddle is $5,600 on DraftKings, a solid value in both cash games and GPPs.
4 hours ago
Mike Davis Note
Mike Davis photo 37. Mike Davis RB - ATL (at MIA)
Davis is a solid play against a Miami run defense allowing 26.5 fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, tied for the league-high with the Chargers. He's a high-end RB2. Patterson is $6,300 on DraftKings, Davis is $5,200, and I find both to be strong values. If forced to pick just one, I'm continuing to ride the C-Patt Express.
4 hours ago
Chase Edmonds Note
Chase Edmonds photo 38. Chase Edmonds RB - ARI (vs . HOU)
Edmonds has a fantastic matchup on paper, but this actually might be more to his detriment than benefit. With the projected game script that Arizona is going to be able to run the ball for the entire second half with a big lead, Edmonds probably isn't going to be needed all that much. Especially if he's still dealing with his shoulder injury, we could see the Cardinals rest him in a game that they'll be able to win practically with their eyes closed. Edmonds receives more value in tighter game scripts where he's needed more as a receiving outlet out of the backfield, but that's simply not the case here. He can be viewed as still a solid start due to the other available options at the RB position, but there's not a ton of upside here when you take a closer look.
16 hours ago
DeVonta Smith Note
DeVonta Smith photo 39. DeVonta Smith WR - PHI (at LV)
Smith obviously has the talent to be a consistent fantasy asset, but he's going to be inconsistent each week due to the QB play. With Hurts struggling to move the offense as a passer, Smith's fantasy stock is going to live and die by what version of Hurts we see on the field any given week. There are going to be some games where Hurts puts together a solid outing - like in week four against Kansas City - and that is going to mean a big performance from Smith as this team's WR1. However, we're going to have to be prepared for the fact that Hurts may only throw for 115 yards like he did in week six against the Bucs and Smith could disappoint. Moving forward, Smith should remain in starting lineups. However, we simply have to view him as a mid-range/low-end WR3 every single week due to his QB. He comes with a massive range of outcomes every single game and there's simply no predicting what we're going to get out of him.
16 hours ago
Brandin Cooks Note
Brandin Cooks photo 40. Brandin Cooks WR - HOU (at ARI)
What Cooks is doing in this Texans offense is inspiring. Despite the atrocious offensive production, Cooks is producing for fantasy and he's now the WR22 on the season. If Tyrod returns to the lineup this week, that can only mean good things for Cooks and his fantasy outlook. At this point, he belongs in your starting lineup every week as a high-end/mid-range WR3 that you know isn't going to crush your lineup no matter what else is going on in the offense around him. He moves up in the rankings this week simply due to so many other teams on bye though, so he can be viewed as a low-end WR2.
16 hours ago
Robert Woods Note
Robert Woods photo 41. Robert Woods WR - LAR (vs . DET)
Woods came back down to earth a little bit last week after reeling in 12 catches for 150 yards in week five, but he was able to find the end zone on one of his two receptions last week against the Giants to save his fantasy day. The Rams simply didn't need Woods all that much last week in a game where they were up big at halftime and were able to lean into their run game and coast in the second half. There's the possibility that the same thing happens here in this game against Detroit, but the scoring opportunities are going to be plentiful for these receiving options. Woods can be viewed as a mid-range/low-end WR2 for week seven with tremendous upside.

Miles Sanders photo 43. Miles Sanders RB - PHI (at LV)
Through six games this season, this is what Sanders is currently averaging per game from a usage standpoint: 9.5 carries, 45 rushing yards, zero touchdowns, three receptions, 20.16 receiving yards, and zero receiving touchdowns. He is now the RB38 on the season from a Fantasy Points Per Game perspective and is behind players like Myles Gaskin, Mike Davis, and JD McKissic to just name a few. There is absolutely no upside with Sanders whatsoever this season and it's never a guarantee that he's going to walk out of any game with more than five carries, but he absolutely belongs in starting lineups this week due to the barren RB landscape. The Raiders are allowing over 100 rushing yards per contest so far this season, so there's the possibility that Sanders has plenty of room to run here in this one. The question becomes whether or not he's going to get the workload. He can be viewed as a high-end RB3.

Javonte Williams Note
Javonte Williams photo 44. Javonte Williams RB - DEN (at CLE)
Williams leads the league in missed tackles per carry, according to PFF. He's averaging 3.5 yards after contact. For sake of comparison, Derrick Henry is averaging 3.6 yards after contact. Williams has been every bit as good as advertised, if not better. Gordon has been solid, too, averaging 4.7 yards per carry and 7.4 yards per target. This continues to be a true 50/50 split, and that arrangement has held steady through the first six weeks. In Week 7, Williams and Gordon face a Cleveland run defense that has continued to hold steady even as the Browns' pass defense has slid into a funk. The Browns are giving up 3.6 yards per carry and rank third in DVOA against the run. Both rank as lower-end RB2s.

D'Ernest Johnson Note
D'Ernest Johnson photo 47. D'Ernest Johnson RB - CLE (vs . DEN)
The Browns have two of the more talented running backs in the league with Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, but that relative embarrassment of RB riches will do them no good this week, with Chubb and Hunt both sidelined with calf injuries. D'Ernest Jackson has been No. 3 on the Browns' RB depth chart and figures to get the start against the Broncos on Thursday night. He's a former undrafted free agent who backed up Marlon Mack for three years at the University of South Florida before rushing for 796 yards and seven touchdowns in a committee role as a senior in 2017. Since entering the league in 2019, he has 40-198-0 rushing and 10-92-0 receiving. Felton, a former UCLA running back who's been playing more of a WR role with the Browns, figures to get some additional snaps, whether out of the backfield or in the slot. Ex-Ram John Kelly has been moved from the practice squad to the active roster and could also factor in. Even with an enhanced role, Johnson is still just a back-end RB2 this week due to all the injuries the Browns are dealing with. Backup QB Case Keenum will be starting for Cleveland, and it's possible they'll be without starting offensive tackles Jedrick Wills and Jack Conklin, who both missed Week 6. Felton and Kelly are long shots to be fantasy-relevant even with enhanced usage.

Tee Higgins Note
Tee Higgins photo 48. Tee Higgins WR - CIN (at BAL)
Higgins hasn't been able to get going since missing Weeks 3-4 with an ankle injury, posting 8-76-0 in his first game back. He'll also draw the tougher matchup of the Bengals' two outside receivers, running a majority of his routes against Marlon Humphrey, while Ja'Marr Chase primarily draws Anthony Averett. Still, Higgins is uber-talented, and he's ranked as a back-end WR2 this week.

Michael Pittman Jr. Note
Michael Pittman Jr. photo 49. Michael Pittman Jr. WR - IND (at SF)
Pittman had been playing lights out football over the previous few weeks, but he came crashing back down to earth last week against the Texans in a prime spot. Hilton made his return to the lineup and he torched Houston, which he has been known to do throughout his NFL career. While Hilton out-produced Pittman, it's worth noting that Hilton had just four targets to Pittman's three. There's little reason to believe that Pittman is now playing second-fiddle to Hilton in this offense, especially with the news that Hilton's currently battling an injury again. The Colts are going to have to throw the ball more than 20 times in this game against San Francisco and we should see a bounce-back performance from the second-year wideout. Pittman can be viewed as a low-end WR2.

Tyler Lockett Note
Tyler Lockett photo 50. Tyler Lockett WR - SEA (vs . NO)
Apparently Lockett's fantasy outlook completely depends on Russell Wilson, huh? Without Wilson pushing the ball deep downfield to Lockett, the veteran receiver wasn't able to do much in week six in a plus matchup against the Steelers. Lockett had just two receptions for 35 yards on seven targets and he now has a much tougher battle this week against the Saints secondary. Until we see Wilson come back into the lineup, it's probably best to view Lockett as nothing more than a low-upside WR3.

Kyle Pitts Note
Kyle Pitts photo 51. Kyle Pitts TE - ATL (at MIA)
It took a while for Pitts to finally pop, but the highly touted rookie turned in his first big NFL game in Week 5, catching 9 of 10 targets for 119 yards and a touchdown. It's worth noting that the Pitts breakout game came in a game that Calvin Ridley missed, but there should be room for both players to produce simultaneously, even if Cordarrelle Patterson continues to take his cut of the passing game, too. Pitts is the TE4 against a Dolphins defense giving up 10.0 fantasy points per game to tight ends, though I'm not especially interested in him at a price of $5,900 on DraftKings.

Henry Ruggs III Note
Henry Ruggs III photo 52. Henry Ruggs III WR - LV (vs . PHI)
Is it time that we start discussing Ruggs as one of the best values from draft season? He was consistently drafted in the WR45-WR55 range in drafts and he has continued to provide massive upside each and every week. Through six weeks, Ruggs is now the WR27 on the season and he's currently 11th in the NFL at the WR position in Yards Per Route Run (min. 30 targets). He has an impressive ADOT of 18.6 this year and he's making big play after big play. We need to start viewing Ruggs as a mid-range WR3 each week that comes with upside if he can find the end zone. In this matchup against the Eagles defense that allowed several big plays to Tyreek Hill earlier this year, Ruggs could pop off for a big reception multiple times. He's a solid play this week as a mid-range WR3 with upside.

Jakobi Meyers Note
Jakobi Meyers photo 53. Jakobi Meyers WR - NE (vs . NYJ)
Well, Meyers finally scored a touchdown last week against the Cowboys! Unfortunately, it was called back due to a penalty, so the streak now continues for the talented receiver where he simply can't find the end zone. Meyers now has 121 career receptions without a touchdown and it's hard to project that he's suddenly going to break through and starting scoring with regularity with the way this offense is looking. There's the potential that he has a solid outing here against the Jets secondary, but we could also see New England lean into their run game significantly. Meyers remains a low-upside FLEX play every single week and he can be viewed in that range again in week seven.

Sterling Shepard Note
Sterling Shepard photo 54. Sterling Shepard WR - NYG (vs . CAR)
Shepard's fantasy value could deteriorate once Kadarius Toney and Kenny Golladay are both healthy again, but with those two out this week, it could be an all-you-can-eat target smorgasbord for Shep. With Golladay out last week and Toney leaving early after reinjuring a bad ankle, Shepard was targeted 14 times and had 10 catches for 76 yards. The only other options QB Daniel Jones has at wide receiver are Dante Pettis, Collin Johnson and John Ross, and it's possible that RB Saquon Barley won't be back from an ankle injury this week either, possibly setting up Shepard to be a focal point of the Giants offense. I have Shepard at WR21 this week, and that may be too conservative. He's a terrific DraftKings option at $5,600.

Darnell Mooney Note
Darnell Mooney photo 55. Darnell Mooney WR - CHI (at TB)
Over the past three games, only three other WRs in the NFL have a higher team target share than Mooney. His 32.3% target share is more than players like Tyreek Hill, DJ Moore, and Terry McLaurin just to name a few. Unfortunately, that has only resulted in 20 total targets, but he's still doing enough with the opportunity to be relevant for fantasy football. In a matchup this week against the Bucs defense that's allowing 24.3 fantasy points on average to opposing WRs this season, Mooney should see enough work to be a viable mid-range WR3.

Corey Davis Note
Corey Davis photo 56. Corey Davis WR - NYJ (at NE)
It's been a bit of an up-and-down season so far from Davis in New York. His production has risen and fallen based on what version of Zach Wilson we see on the field that week, but he has remained a key focal point of the offense. He's seen 24 targets over his past three games, which keeps him at least in the low-end WR3 discussion moving forward. In a matchup where he put up just 2-8-0 the last time these two teams played it's probably best to not expect much from him here, but the volume should be there enough to start him this week against New England. He can be viewed as a low-end WR3/high-end FLEX option for week seven.

Odell Beckham Jr. Note
Odell Beckham Jr. photo 57. Odell Beckham Jr. WR - CLE (vs . DEN)
Beckham is questionable with a shoulder injury. Even if he plays, he'll be paired up with backup QB Case Keenum in an offense that could be without its two starting offensive tackles. A matchup against a slumping Denver pass defense isn't as daunting as it might have seemed a month ago, but Beckham still isn't a very attractive play in season-long leagues. I have him at WR40.

Myles Gaskin Note
Myles Gaskin photo 58. Myles Gaskin RB - MIA (vs . ATL)
The Dolphins' RB situation has become a fantasy swamp. It seemed as if Gaskin might have regained control of this backfield in Week 5, when he played 69% of the offensive snaps and had 10 catches for 74 yards and two touchdowns. That now appears to have been either a mirage or an opponent-specific gameplan against a Buccaneers defense that's impregnable against the run but can be had through the air. Last week, Gaskin played the same number of snaps as Brown (a 36% snap share for each) and had 5-9-0 rushing and 2-5-0 receiving. Woof. Even with six teams on bye, Gaskin is just a high-end RB3 this week. Ahmed, who at times looks like he has the most juice of anyone in this backfield, played 27% of the snaps in Week 6 and had a season-high seven carries. He's the RB44. Brown has had at least five carries in all five of the games he's played this year, but never more than eight. He's the RB45. I'm not touching any of these guys in DFS.

Allen Robinson II Note
Allen Robinson II photo 59. Allen Robinson II WR - CHI (at TB)
Here's the good news for Robinson from a fantasy perspective: Over the last three weeks he has seen a 24.2% team target share. This is a higher target share percentage than players like DK Metcalf, Deandre Hopkins, Adam Thielen, Michael Pittman Jr, and Mike Williams to name a few. However, it has only resulted in 15 total targets due to the lack of passing volume in this Bears offense. With the Bears slowing down the pace of play and committing to their run game more, Justin Fields hasn't been asked to throw the ball a ton and the receiving options in Chicago are struggling because of it. In this matchup against the Buccaneers though, the Bears are not going to be able to run the ball as efficiently as they have been over the past couple of games and we could finally see Fields move over the 30 pass attempts threshold. Robinson's disappointed a ton of fantasy managers so far this season, but the path for opportunity is still there. He can be viewed as a mid-range WR3 this week.

Mike Gesicki Note
Mike Gesicki photo 60. Mike Gesicki TE - MIA (vs . ATL)
Gesicki's weekly fantasy finishes since Week 3: TE3, TE7, TE17, TE2. He's the TE8 on the season but the TE4 since Week 3. Gesicki's average depth of target is 9.8 yards, which is 2.0 yards deeper than Travis Kelce's aDOT and notably deep for any tight end. Yet Gesicki still has a 69.8% catch rate, so he's cashing in on those high-value targets. I'm slightly nervous about what might happen to Gesicki's target count once WRs Jaylen Waddle, DeVante Parker and Will Fuller are all active at the same time, but the best approach is to just keep riding Gesicki until there's a good reason to stop. I have him at TE6 this week. Gesicki also looks like one of the best values on the board, if not the best, at a price of $4,700 on DraftKings.

Tim Patrick Note
Tim Patrick photo 61. Tim Patrick WR - DEN (at CLE)
Despite seeing more than six targets in a game only once, Patrick is the WR30 in fantasy scoring (0.5 PPR). That's because he's averaging an efficient 10.1 yards per target. The impending return of Jerry Jeudy could further restrict Patrick's diet of targets, but Patrick is still a reasonably good play in fantasy for at least another week. He falls into midrange WR3 territory.

Michael Carter Note
Michael Carter photo 62. Michael Carter RB - NYJ (at NE)
Before New York's week six bye, these are Carter's opportunities (targets+ carries) per game: 6, 14, 12, 16, and 13. While the state of the offense around him prevents him from being incredibly efficient with those opportunities, he's getting enough work to be on the redraft radar consistently. In a week where so many other starting options at the RB position are unavailable due to bye weeks and injuries, Carter has to be in consideration for starting fantasy lineups. The Patriots are only allowing 14.7 fantasy points per game so far this season to opposing RBs, so the upside might no be there with Carter, but we know that he's going to see anywhere between 12-18 touches here. He can be viewed as a high-end RB3.

Dallas Goedert Note
Dallas Goedert photo 63. Dallas Goedert TE - PHI (at LV)
For years now, we've wondered what Goedert's fantasy production could be if Zach Ertz wasn't in the picture in Philadelphia. We're about to find out, folks! With Ertz now in Arizona after a trade, Goedert has this TE room all to himself and he's going to be able to prove that he's worth a big contract extension for the Eagles. While the production might not be as consistent as we would like each game due to the QB play, Goedert should bring a safe floor each and every week. The Raiders are currently allowing the 6th-most fantasy points to opposing TEs, so the opportunity is there for Goedert to have a big game. We'll see if Hurts is able to come through. He can be viewed as a mid-range/low-end TE1 for week seven.

Mecole Hardman Note
Mecole Hardman photo 65. Mecole Hardman WR - KC (at TEN)
Hardman has been straddling the periphery of fantasy relevance this season. Over his last two games, he's had 13-138-0 on 17 targets. In an offense as good as Kansas City's Hardman is at least worthy of WR3 or flex consideration with six teams on bye. But if Tyreek Hill is unable to play due to a quad injury, Hardman instantly becomes a must-start and a free square in DraftKings contests at only $4,300. (Even if Hill plays, Hardman is going to find his way into at least one of my DraftKings lineups at such an affordable price.)

T.J. Hockenson Note
T.J. Hockenson photo 66. T.J. Hockenson TE - DET (at LAR)
After a couple of down weeks, Hockenson rebounded in a solid way against the Bengals. Hockenson saw a 28.2% target share in week six and he turned it into eight receptions for 74 yards. Even with battling through an injury, Hockenson's been a focal point of the Lions offense and he's worth starting every single week as a potential top-5 option. He's not going to come with the upside that Mark Andrews, Travis Kelce, or maybe even Kyle Pitts does at this point due to the state of the offense around him, but he's going to bring a high floor each and every game. He can be viewed as a mid-range TE1 this week against the Rams.
16 hours ago
J.D. McKissic Note
J.D. McKissic photo 67. J.D. McKissic RB - WAS (at GB)
McKissic figures to get ample work this week regardless of Gibson's status. McKissic has played 46% of Washington's offensive snaps this year and had a season-high 61% snap share last week. He also had a season-high eight carries for 45 yards, although that's probably the absolute single-game carry ceiling for McKissic. What you really care about if you're a McKissic investor is the passing-game usage, and he's averaged a healthy 5.4 targets a game since Week 2. McKissic is a low-end RB2 this week and is appealing in DraftKings contests at an affordable cost of $5,000.

Christian Kirk Note
Christian Kirk photo 68. Christian Kirk WR - ARI (vs . HOU)
Aside from his one catch performance in week four against the Rams, Kirk has actually been an incredibly consistent fantasy asset. Even with that game taken into account, he is averaging 4.33 receptions and 60 receiving yards per game, which is certainly worth considering for your FLEX spot every single week. Looking at the matchup this week against the Texans, there's a very strong possibility that each WR for the Cardinals comes away with a touchdown in what is projected to be a massive win. With so many other receiving options on bye or injured this week, Kirk's a solid FLEX play with tremendous upside.

Khalil Herbert Note
Khalil Herbert photo 69. Khalil Herbert RB - CHI (at TB)
At the time of writing, it's unclear whether or not Damien Williams is going to be able to return for this matchup against the Buccaneers. If William does return off of the COVID-19/Reserve list, Herbert can't be trusted as anything more than a low-end RB3 in our starting lineups due to the lack of volume. If Williams doesn't return, Herbert's worth considering as a high-end RB3 in lineups, but we shouldn't be expecting the type of production we've gotten from him over the past two weeks. The Bucs defense is a brutal matchup for opposing RBs and the majority of offensive coordinators simply look to abandon the run game, so we shouldn't be overly optimistic for his week seven outlook.

Noah Fant Note

Fant's stat lines in the two games since the Broncos' No. 2 tight end, Albert Okwuegbunam, went on IR: 3-20-0 and 9-97-1. With Albert O. still out and WR Jerry Jeudy not expected back until next week, Fant's target outlook for Week 7 is sunny. I have him ranked TE8 this week, though the numerologists among you may be troubled by the fact that Fant has scored a touchdown in every even-numbered week but has failed to reach the end zone in odd-numbered weeks.

Rondale Moore Note
Rondale Moore photo 71. Rondale Moore WR - ARI (vs . HOU)
Has Moore been the definition of consistency this year? Absolutely not. However, he still brings plenty of upside based on his skillset and the offense that he plays in. While there's absolutely the possibility that Moore disappoints yet again this week because of his lack of opportunity, he's worth starting as a FLEX play simply based on the Vegas Implied Point totals. Arizona is going to be putting points up on the board in this game and each receiving option for the Cardinals holds ridiculous upside. We might not be able to confidently predict which one gets the score or has the big game, but the upside is there with each and every one of them. Moore can be viewed as a low-end FLEX play in week seven.

Damien Williams Note
Damien Williams photo 72. Damien Williams RB - CHI (at TB)
As of right now, we simply don't know whether Williams is going to return to lineup after landing on the COVID-19/Reserve list last week. Even if he does return, there's no guarantee that he's going to be 100% himself or see the majority of the work in this backfield. For right now, Williams should be viewed as a mid-range RB3 if he plays. We'll continue to update as there's more information.

Marquez Callaway Note
Marquez Callaway photo 73. Marquez Callaway WR - NO (at SEA)
Callaway has started to emerge as a viable option in this Saints offense over the previous couple of weeks, but there's still very little predictability with this team as far as where the majority of the targets are going to go. In a fantastic matchup on paper, we could see Callaway explode for a monstrous performance or we could see Winston pepper other receiving weapons on this team with targets and Callaway's left with a lackluster fantasy outing. He has a wide range of outcomes this week and he needs to be viewed as a low-end FLEX play accordingly.

Tyler Boyd Note

In the two games Tee Higgins missed, Boyd had 4-36-1 and 9-118-0. In the four games that Higgins, Boyd, and Ja'Marr Chase have all played together, Boyd is averaging 3.8 catches for 34.0 yards. It's a small sample size, but it's fair to wonder if the arrival of Chase is going to put a major dent in Boyd's fantasy value. He's a midrange WR3 this week and not someone I'm looking to use in DFS.

Tyler Higbee Note
Tyler Higbee photo 75. Tyler Higbee TE - LAR (vs . DET)
Higbee's target volume has been a bit inconsistent up to this point of the season, but he's getting the job done for fantasy football regardless. Higbee's now the TE13 on the season and he has an excellent change of finding the end zone any given week due to how high-powered the offense is here in Los Angeles. Against the Lions defense that isn't going to stand a chance of slowing down this Rams offense, Higbee's a rock-solid low-end TE1 yet again.

A.J. Green Note
A.J. Green photo 76. A.J. Green WR - ARI (vs . HOU)
Just when fantasy managers started to believe that Green was a viable FLEX option week in and week out, he disappeared in week five for just one catch on two targets. Up to that point of the season, he'd been extremely consistent and seeing six targets each of the first four games of the year. Fantasy managers everywhere finally started to buy into Green and he burned them with that week five performance, but then he got right back to his usual six targets in a week where virtually no one started him in week six. Against the Browns, Green went off for five receptions for 79 yards and a touchdown, but should we buy back in again from a fantasy perspective? In this matchup, it's probably worth playing him as a high-upside FLEX play. The Texans corners aren't going to have an answer for Hopkins and Green on the outside and Green has an excellent chance of finding the end zone here. There's the possibility that the touchdowns go to one of Kirk or Moore, but due to the matchup and the high Vegas Implied Point total, it's a shot worth taking.

DeVante Parker Note
DeVante Parker photo 77. DeVante Parker WR - MIA (vs . ATL)
Parker practiced on Wednesday after missing Weeks 5-6 with shoulder and ankle injuries. He's had at least four catches and 42 yards in all four of his games this year, so there's a fairly sturdy floor here, but we haven't seen much of a ceiling yet, with Parker topping out at a tie for WR14 in Week 4. I have him ranked conservatively at WR39, and even though he's a very affordable $5,000 in DraftKings, I probably won't look his way when piecing lineups together.

Robby Anderson Note
Robby Anderson photo 78. Robby Anderson WR - CAR (at NYG)
The good news is that Anderson has been targeted 29 times over his last three games. The bad news is that he's caught just 10 of those passes for 87 yards and a touchdown. That works out to 3.0 yards per target over his last three games. Ouch. Anderson was terrible in Week 6, catching 3 of 11 passes for only 11 yards and dropping multiple passes. His saving grace was a late TD catch. The targets keep Anderson on the fantasy radar, but just barely. He's the WR41 this week and not a worthwhile DFS investment.

Hunter Renfrow Note
Hunter Renfrow photo 79. Hunter Renfrow WR - LV (vs . PHI)
So far this season, Renfrow has been one of fantasy football's most consistent WRs. He's provided some big fantasy performances this year when he's been able to find the end zone and he has yet to completely crush your lineup this year, which has not been the case for many other fantasy assets. While he had just a 3-36-0 stat line last week against the Broncos, the Raiders were up big in that game and didn't necessarily need him a ton. This week against Philadelphia, Renfrow should be back in your lineup as a high-end FLEX play that's going to bring plenty of stability to your roster.

Brandon Aiyuk Note
Brandon Aiyuk photo 80. Brandon Aiyuk WR - SF (vs . IND)
Here is Aiyuk's current 17-game pace: 27 receptions, 306 receiving yards, and 3.6 touchdowns. Aiyuk's usage has been one of the most disappointing storylines in fantasy football up to this point of the season and it's difficult to see how that changes any time soon. Until we actually see Aiyuk breaking out for a big performance, it's best to leave him on your bench or on your league's waiver wire.

Mark Ingram II Note
Mark Ingram II photo 81. Mark Ingram II RB - HOU (at ARI)
The Texans are sure committed to establishing the run, I'll give them that. Even in a game where they were down by nearly 30 points, they were still feeding the ball to Ingram on the ground and he ended last week's contest with a shocking 17 carries. At this point, Ingram is nothing more than a low-upside play that you are putting in your lineup out of desperation. In this crazy bye week, that might have some value, but it's probably best to look elsewhere if you can.

Rashod Bateman Note
Rashod Bateman photo 82. Rashod Bateman WR - BAL (vs . CIN)
Bateman's NFL debut in Week 6 was a mixed bag. Returning from a core injury, the first-round draft pick from the University of Minnesota tied for the team-high in targets with six, but he caught only four of them for 29 yards, and his bobbling of a Lamar Jackson throw resulted in an interception. It's a bit too early to trust Bateman for fantasy purposes, though some managers might not have a choice in the Week 7 bye-pocalypse. Bateman is a midrange WR4 and not a consideration for DFS.

Hunter Henry Note
Hunter Henry photo 84. Hunter Henry TE - NE (vs . NYJ)
Henry and Jonnu continue to be essentially near-even from a snap count perspective in this offense, but Henry has established himself as the reliable receiving option. Henry ran 19 routes last week to Smith's 10 and, while he was only given two targets on the day, he was able to find the end zone for the third game in a row. Will Henry ever see enough volume to push his way into the top-5 at the position? Most likely not, but he has as good a chance of finding the end zone as many of the other TEs in his range of rankings. He can be viewed as a low-end TE1/high-end TE2 in this matchup against the Jets.

Nelson Agholor Note
Nelson Agholor photo 85. Nelson Agholor WR - NE (vs . NYJ)
Agholor continues to be involved in this Patriots offense, but the pass volume simply isn't enough to lead to consistent production from the veteran receiver. In another offense, we could be talking about Agholor as a valuable FLEX play week in and week out, but it's simply not happening here in New England. He can be dropped to your waiver wire if there's a player with more upside available.

At the time of writing, it's unclear whether or not Hilton's going to be able to suit up for this game against the 49ers. If he does play, he might not be at 100%, so playing him in fantasy lineups this week is a risky decision. I'd prefer to sit Hilton for a week if I did pick him up off of the waiver wire.

Jamaal Williams Note
Jamaal Williams photo 87. Jamaal Williams RB - DET (at LAR)
Back in week one, Williams had nine total targets against the San Francisco 49ers and it seemed like he was destined for a massive role in the passing game in this Lions offense. Since that point, Williams has just nine targets over the past five games. While he had been utilized heavily on the ground up to week six, he had just four rush attempts for 11 yards against the Bengals. At this point, Williams' usage is too inconsistent to trust for fantasy purposes and he should be left on your bench.

Amon-Ra St. Brown Note
Amon-Ra St. Brown photo 88. Amon-Ra St. Brown WR - DET (at LAR)
Over the course of this season, St. Brown has slowly been working his way up rest-of-season rankings. Three weeks ago, he saw his snap count dramatically increase and he now has seen 23 targets over those three contests. While there's very little upside with St. Brown due to the offense that he plays in here in Detroit, the opportunity to soak up targets each and every game is absolutely there due to how much the Lions play from behind. He can be viewed as a high-floor FLEX play in Full PPR formats this week against the Rams.

Bryan Edwards Note
Bryan Edwards photo 89. Bryan Edwards WR - LV (vs . PHI)
Edwards has plenty of talent and he's showcased that on multiple occasions so far this year, but he's not seeing enough volume in this Raiders offense to be a viable fantasy asset week after week. Over his past three games combined, Edwards has just five total receptions. Unfortunately, unless something happens to Ruggs or Renfrow in this offense, we're unlikely to be talking about Edwards as a FLEX option at any point this season. He can remain on your bench in deeper leagues or on the waiver wire if you need to make room for another option.

Rhamondre Stevenson Note
Rhamondre Stevenson photo 90. Rhamondre Stevenson RB - NE (vs . NYJ)
Stevenson hasn't exactly been the model of efficiency so far this season. He's averaging just 2.8 Yards Per Attempt on 17 carries, but he's now starting to see his usage increase as the season goes along. The rookie RB only had five rush attempts last week against the Cowboys - one which he converted for a touchdown at the goal line - but he was actually the Patriots RB that ran the most routes out of the backfield. Up to this point of the season, Brandon Bolden had been stepping in as the receiving back for the Patriots in James White's absence, but he only ran seven routes and saw one target last week. Stevenson ran nine routes and had three targets. Unless something happens to Harris to cause him to miss this game against the Jets, Stevenson's probably not worth playing as anything more than a low-end FLEX option. However, it's worth monitoring moving forward to see if the receiving usage last week was a fluke or not. If it's not, we could see him move up rest-of-season rankings into a weekly high-end RB3.

Ricky Seals-Jones Note
Ricky Seals-Jones photo 91. Ricky Seals-Jones TE - WAS (at GB)
Washington is dealing with myriad injuries to ball carriers and pass-catchers, and Seals-Jones missed practice on Wednesday due to a new quad injury. He's been solid the last two weeks, with 9-99-1. Seals-Jones has been playing nearly every offensive snap the last three weeks and running routes on the vast majority of dropbacks. With other Washington skill-position players banged up, RSJ will sneak into low-end TE1 territory if he plays, and he offers DraftKings value at just $3,700.

Julio Jones Note
Julio Jones photo 92. Julio Jones WR - TEN (vs . KC)
You'll have to check the practice status of Jones in the run-up to Saturday's game against the Chiefs. He was back in action in Week 6 after missing Weeks 4-5, but Jones aggravated the injury and didn't practice on Wednesday. In his return, Jones had an acrobatic 48-yard reception on a ball that bounced off a defender's helmet, managing to get both feet inbounds after making a diving grab. But it was a quiet night overall: 3-59-0 on five targets. The injury makes Jones a risky proposition even if he plays. He's a back-end WR2 this week.

Van Jefferson Note
Van Jefferson photo 93. Van Jefferson WR - LAR (vs . DET)
Jefferson seemed like he was trending towards carving out a significant role for himself in this Rams offense just a few weeks ago, but he's now moved back to a complementary role and his fantasy outlook has taken a hit because of it. Jefferson has just 35 receiving yards over the past two weeks and he's now out of the weekly FLEX conversation, even in deeper leagues. He has some appeal in DFS this week due to the potential game-script and scoring opportunities, but we can't view him anywhere near our starting lineups in redraft leagues.

Jamison Crowder Note
Jamison Crowder photo 94. Jamison Crowder WR - NYJ (at NE)
Crowder emerged as a viable fantasy asset in his first game back this seson with the Jets in week four, but he fell flat on his face against the Falcons in week five with just a 4-24-0 stat line. His production is completely dependent upon the level of QB play here in New York and things aren't looking very promising for this week against the Patriots. Wilson's probably going to struggle yet again here and Crowder becomes a very risky play because of it. He can be viewed as a low-end FLEX play in Full PPR formats at best.

Quez Watkins Note

Watkins was actually relevant last week in a game where Hurts only threw for 115 yards, but it's still not enough consistent production for us to buy in from a redraft perspective. For the time being, Watkins is merely just a hold in Dynasty leagues and he shouldn't be considered for starting lineups in redraft leagues.

A sprained MCL has kept Landry out of action since Week 2, but he has a chance to return for Thursday night's game against the Broncos, and the injury-depleted Browns could certainly use him. I tentatively have him slotted as a low-end WR47 in a tough individual matchup against Broncos slot corner Bryce Callahan.

Zach Ertz Note
Zach Ertz photo 99. Zach Ertz TE - ARI (vs . HOU)
Ertz now works his way West as he's going to suit up in red this upcoming weekend for the Arizona Cardinals versus his usual green. He should step right into this offense and pick right up where Maxx Williams left off as a reliable receiving outlet for Murray. In a tougher matchup, it might be worth letting Ertz sit for a week as he gets adjusted to the offense, but the Texans' defense has been gahsed by opposing TEs this season. They're allowing the second-most fantasy points to the TE position and we know Arizona's going to put points up on the board. Start Ertz as a low-end TE1 if you've got him.

Donovan Peoples-Jones Note
Donovan Peoples-Jones photo 100. Donovan Peoples-Jones WR - CLE (vs . DEN)
Don't let the Week 6 stat line fool you: Peoples-Jones' 4-101-2 game was largely driven by a 57-yard TD catch on a Hail Mary. Aside from that play, he drew just four targets on 30 routes. People-Jones won't be playable for fantasy purposes if Odell Beckham (shoulder) and Jarvis Landry (knee) are both able to play, but he could warrant flex consideration if OBJ and Landry are both out and DPJ becomes the Browns' No. 1 receiver by default.

Kalif Raymond Note

Kenneth Gainwell Note
Kenneth Gainwell photo 102. Kenneth Gainwell RB - PHI (at LV)
After week four, it looked like Gainwell might be heading towards a massive role in this offense and that he could potentially take over the starting role from Sanders in this backfield. He had 11 total opportunities (carries + targets) against Kansas City and he performed well with that workload. Since that game, Gainwell has seen just seven total opportunities over the past two weeks and he has just 25 total yards to show for it. This offense in Philadelphia is abysmal at times and we simply can't trust the play-calling or usage of their most talented players. If you need to move on from Gainwell for a RB option that's seeing consistent usage, it's fine to drop him to your waiver wire. Otherwise, we can't consider him in our starting lineups for this week.

We're six games through this season and Reagor is now currently on pace for just 48 receptions, 397 yards, and 2.8 receiving touchdowns. In an offense that is sputtering and failing to put Reagor in the best places to succeed, there's no reason why we should continue to roster Reagor in redraft leagues. He can be dropped everywhere.

Kendrick Bourne Note
Kendrick Bourne photo 104. Kendrick Bourne WR - NE (vs . NYJ)
Bourne was able to reel in a big catch for New England last week that resulted in a 75-yard touchdown, but that was his only catch of the game. There's not enough volume in this Patriots offense for us to consider Bourne in our redraft leagues. He's only worth rostering in deep Dynasty leagues currently.

David Johnson Note

Sony Michel Note
Sony Michel photo 106. Sony Michel RB - LAR (vs . DET)
Michel has remained a change-of-pace back in this offense as Henderson has simply dominated the starting work, but he's seen some work in games where LA has gone up big and is looking to run out the clock. In any normal week, starting Michel would be a very risky game to play. However, we know that the Rams are going to cover the gigantic spread in this matchup and they're most likely going to run the ball for the majority of the second half. Michel should be able to see enough work to be a viable fantasy asset this week for teams that are desperate for a starting option. There's certainly some risk involved as he will only be involved if the game is out of hand, but the path for relevancy is there.

Randall Cobb Note
Randall Cobb photo 107. Randall Cobb WR - GB (vs . WAS)
Only once this season has Cobb seen more than three targets in a game. He's worth mentioning in a week with so many good players on bye and a favorable matchup against Washington on tap, but he's ranked WR60, and you'd have to be pretty desperate to play him in season-long leagues.

Mo Alie-Cox Note
Mo Alie-Cox photo 109. Mo Alie-Cox TE - IND (at SF)
Alie-Cox's usage from last week isn't exactly inspiring confidence for fantasy managers that have to pivot to a replacement TE option this week. Alie-Cox ran just nine routes this past week against Houston and he finished the game with just one reception for 28 yards, but that catch just happened to be for a touchdown. Right now, MAC is simply just a desperation play for managers that have no better option due to bye weeks and injuries. He can be viewed as a mid-range TE2 at best against the 49ers.
16 hours ago
Kenyan Drake Note
Kenyan Drake photo 110. Kenyan Drake RB - LV (vs . PHI)
Drake's fantasy point total from week six certainly makes it appear as though we should go chasing after him and start him in our lineup against the Eagles, but it's important to note that he scored two touchdowns against the Broncos on just six total touches. Additionally, Drake only played 12 total snaps in week six, which was only four more than Jalen Richard in this same backfield. This usage is too limited for us to comfortably predict that Drake is going to be a fantasy relevant option again in week seven. The matchup is enticing, but until we see Drake's usage tick up we can't view him as a trustworthy play. He's worth considering if you're absolutely desperate at the RB position, but we shouldn't view him as anything more than a dart throw play that you're hoping finds the end zone.

Collins returned to the lineup in week six against the Colts and did enough to signal that there's a path for him to be a fantasy-relevant option down the line, but it's unlikely to happen this season in Houston. He can remain on your league's waiver wire or he can be stashed at the bottom of benches in deeper formats.

Many fantasy managers are going to turn and look at Hines as a potential bye week fill-in option here against the 49ers, but there are plenty of reasons to be concerned about playing him in fantasy this week. Hines' usage has been sporadic up to this point of the season and it's been near impossible to estimate when he's going to be given more than five touches in a game. Over the last three weeks, Hines is averaging just five opportunities per game and that's not going to be enough to get the job done for fantasy football. If you do start Hines this week, it's merely as a complete desperation play.

Gage is due back from an ankle injury, and I expect he'll find his way into some season-long lineups in a bye-heavy week. A lot of fantasy managers seemed to fall in love with Gage during his 72-786-4 season in 2020. Those numbers just barely made Gage fantasy-relevant, but I suspect that relevance is going to evaporate now that Kyle Pitts and Cordarrelle Patterson have become major contributors to the Atlanta passing game. I have Gage ranked WR54 this week and have zero interest in him in DFS.

Even with Kenny Golladay out last week and Kadarius Toney forced to make an early exit due to an ankle injury, Engram had only three catches for 24 yards on five targets. Through four games he has 14-127-0. Even in a week with six teams on bye, I'm avoiding him like the plague. He's the TE15 this week and not worth your consideration in DFS.

With George Kittle on IR, Dwelley should step in and see plenty of targets over the middle of the field. While we know that Dwelley isn't going to be able to do the same with his opportunity as Kittle would in this offense, he's still worth considering for fantasy lineups due to the potential target share. With so many other TE options being touchdown-or-bust players, Dwelley's a solid start as a high-end TE2.

Cole Kmet Note
Cole Kmet photo 131. Cole Kmet TE - CHI (at TB)
Welcome back to the redraft conversation, Kmet! After doing next to nothing the previous few weeks, Kmet had a 20% target share in week six against the Packers and he reeled in four of his five targets for 49 yards. While it's certainly not anything impressive on a surface level, this type of performance doesn't crush your lineup and he's worth considering in this matchup against the Bucs if you're in a pinch. Fields is going to be forced into throwing the ball more this week and Kmet should benefit as a result. He's nothing more than a mid-range TE2 in rankings, but if you're in a pinch due to bye weeks and injuries, Kmet can be picked up and started.

Did you know that Smith actually saw more snaps last week for the Patriots against the Cowboys? Smith led the team at the position with 39 snaps, but he ran only 10 receiving routes to Henry's 19. The Patriots are content to let Smith stay in as a blocking option versus getting him out in space and letting him create after the catch, which is where he's at his best. Until we see the philosophy change for the Patriots, which is unlikely to happen at this point, Smith should remain on your league's waiver wire.

Malcolm Brown Note
Malcolm Brown photo 137. Malcolm Brown RB - MIA (vs . ATL)
The Dolphins' RB situation has become a fantasy swamp. It seemed as if Gaskin might have regained control of this backfield in Week 5, when he played 69% of the offensive snaps and had 10 catches for 74 yards and two touchdowns. That now appears to have been either a mirage or an opponent-specific gameplan against a Buccaneers defense that's impregnable against the run but can be had through the air. Last week, Gaskin played the same number of snaps as Brown (a 36% snap share for each) and had 5-9-0 rushing and 2-5-0 receiving. Woof. Even with six teams on bye, Gaskin is just a high-end RB3 this week. Ahmed, who at times looks like he has the most juice of anyone in this backfield, played 27% of the snaps in Week 6 and had a season-high seven carries. He's the RB44. Brown has had at least five carries in all five of the games he's played this year, but never more than eight. He's the RB45. I'm not touching any of these guys in DFS.

Brown's six targets and three catches in Week 6 matched season highs, but Brown still hasn't topped 34 yards in any game. I have him ranked WR69 but will move him considerably up if McLaurin doesn't play.
