Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 6 PPR Rankings

Tyreek Hill Note

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.

Travis Kelce Note

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.

Darrel Williams Note

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.

Mecole Hardman Note

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.

Jerick McKinnon Note

With CEH on IR for the next few weeks, McKinnon should see an uptick in work in this backfield. However, it's unlikely to be enough to provide standalone value with Williams seeing the majority of the touches. 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.

Josh Gordon Note

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.
