Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 6 PPR Rankings

Mark Andrews Note

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.

Marquise Brown Note

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.

Latavius Murray Note

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.

Rashod Bateman Note

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.
