Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 6 PPR Rankings

Miles Sanders Note

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.

Kenneth Gainwell Note

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.
