Week 6: Get 'Em In, Get 'Em Out

SHARE:

Week 6 is upon us and all we know so far this season is the Patriots are good.  What are the Cowboys?  What are the Chiefs?  Are the Colts for real?  The NFL has been the Wild West for a month and a half, and so has the fantasy world.  I continue to guide you through that Wild West, however, to let you know who to get in your lineup, and who to get out.

New York Giants @ New England Patriots

  • Get 'Em In
    • Sony Michel - Weather forecast.  Cold, rainy, and very windy.  Throwing the ball, which should be easy against the Giants Swiss Cheese secondary, will be difficult under those conditions.  Couple that with the short week and this game is a recipe for a run heavy attack.  Sony should get plenty of looks tonight finally, and in a game they should pull away easily in, continue to feed him for four quarters.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • John Hilliman - Who?  Just because someone is the defacto starting running back, does not mean you should play him.  The Patriots have the third best run defense and game flow is going to force the ball into Danny Dimes' hands.  Hilliman to me is not even a desperation play.
Carolina Panthers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers


  • Get 'Em In
    • Kyle Allen - Allen has certainty tailed off since his first game in Week 3 where he threw four touchdowns and posted 33 fantasy points.  But that was against Arizona, whose defense is bottom of the barrel.  Well, this week he faces off against Tampa across the pond in London, whose defense is also bottom of the barrel.  The Bucs defense has been shredded by Daniel Jones, Jared Goff, and Teddy Bridgewater.  There's little reason as to why Allen cannot join that list.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • O.J. Howard - This one is mind boggling and if you bench him, it will probably be the week he goes off.  But the way Winston has been chucking the ball around it makes zero sense how little production Howard has seen.  Through five games Howard only has 14 targets.  Just a putrid volume.  You just cannot trust Howard right now and should be on your bench.  And if/and when the week comes he goes off on your bench, that's just the beauty of fantasy baby.

Washington Redskins @ Miami Dolphins



  •  Get 'Em In
    • Terry McLaurin - Clearly no surprise, the Dolphins are among the league's worst at defending the pass and have allowed seven touchdowns already to wide outs.  This week Case Keenum has been tabbed as the Redskins starter again, and that may not seem like much, but Keenum and McLaurin showed to have some real chemistry.  In the games with Keenum at the helm, McLaurin posted fantasy points of 23, 17, and 19.  McLaurin has WR1 potential this week.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Chris Thompson - For the first time all year the Redskins should see a game flow that allows them to run the ball.  On top of that, interim Head Coach Bill Callahan is going to want to run the ball.  A lot.  Enter Adrian Peterson.  We know what Thompson's role is in this offense, and that's a third down back and pass catcher.  He will get some looks, but it should finally be AP being the much stronger play.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Minnesota Vikings



  • Get 'Em In
    • Stefon Diggs - Sometimes you need to be bold.  After the way the Diggs saga has played out, this is pretty bold.  The easy answer is get Thielen in.  Especially because the Eagles secondary is "meh" at best.  The Eagles coaching staff is too smart to let Thielen run wild on them though.  Diggs at home with a lot of one-on-one coverage with poor cornerbacks is the best recipe for success he has had all season long.  Diggs has only seen four targets a game, but let's go with 10 targets this week, seven catches, 82 yards, and a score.

    • Jordan Howard - Great.  The Eagles are finally realizing Jordan Howard is, and should be, their lead back.  Finally.  All just in time for a trip to Minnesota and their fourth ranked run defense.  Howard will continue to have strong weeks, just not this week.

Houston Texans @ Kansas City Chiefs



  • Get 'Em In
    • DeAndre Hopkins - Two reasons why you should believe in DeAndre Hopkins this week to go off for the first time since Week 1.  First being it's the Chiefs and their porous secondary and they will need to throw to keep pace.  Two being the big one.  I am playing AGAINST him in fantasy this week, and the theme has been for players that have been quiet, to bust out the week I am facing them.  Looking at you Todd Gurley and DeShaun Watson.  That was unnecessary last week.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Sammy Watkins/Byron Pringle/Demarcus Robinson - All signs point to Tyreek Hill returning to the field this Sunday.  That means the offense is back running through three people.  Damien Williams, Travis Kelce, and Tyreek Hill.  The rest of the Chiefs offensive weapons fall back to second fiddle and qualify simply as boom or bust.  More likely bust.

New Orleans Saints @ Jacksonville Jaguars



  • Get 'Em In
    • DJ Chark - The Minshew/Chark connection is real, and it's beautiful.  Chark is fresh off a career day of eight catches for 164 yards and two touchdown, and his quarterback is the hottest thing in town.  Literally and physically.  I like Chark to keep it rolling against a bottom-tier pass defense.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Teddy Bridgewater - Last week's four touchdown performance was more about his opponent than it was Bridgewater's own skill.  Don't get me wrong, Bridgewater is just fine, and you have to admire the job he has done in Drew Brees's absence.  But I think New Orleans will go back to a more conservative approach this week against the Jaguars on the road and run most of their offense back through Alvin Kamara.

Seattle Seahawks @ Cleveland Browns



  • Get 'Em In
    • Tyler Lockett - I am done telling you all that this cat is elite.  Y'all see that catch Thursday night?  Good lord.  Lockett is a must start WR1 week in and week out until further notice.  Lockett in.  See what I did there?
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Jarvis Landry - The Browns stink.  Always have stunk.  Always will stink.  We all hyped them like incompetent buffoons.  And Landry's performance two weeks ago was a complete aberration.  Stay away from the Cleveland Browns AGAIN.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Baltimore Ravens



  • Get 'Em In
    • Mark Ingram - Ingram posted somewhat of a dud last week, but salvaged the day a bit with a touchdown.  Only 44 rushing yards against a run of the mill Steelers defense was disappointing.  Good news is Ingram tends to bounce back nicely.  These are his fantasy point totals through the first five weeks: 22, 9, 35, 9, 12.  Ingram should have a field day against the 31st ranked Bengals defense and hit the 20 point threshold once again.
  • Get 'Em Out 
    • Tyler Eifert- There was definite hope a week ago that Tyler Eifert would have a strong day.  Everything was lined up in his favor with numerous pass catchers down for the Bengals offense, and playing against a bad Cardinals team.  He rewarded our hope with two catches.  Eifert just is not fantasy relevant in 2019.
San Francisco 49ers @ Los Angeles Rams


  • Get 'Em In
    • Tevin Coleman -  This is a really tricky game, and situation to get a feel on.  This could be a shootout.  Or this could be a turnover battle.  Tevin Coleman could take the lead reigns, or Matt Breida could still steal a chunk of his playing time.  I am going to go with Coleman on gut, but don't feel great about it.  I feel great about the potential, just not about the share with Breida.  The Rams, even though they have a stout defensive line, have been quite vulnerable on the ground.  Coleman and Breida will probably both get equal touches, but if the game takes the shootout route, it's Coleman that becomes the better play because of his pass catching ability.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Robert Woods -  The Rams and myself appear off the Robert Woods bandwagon.  Besides Week 4 where the Rams were chasing points from the opening kickoff against Tampa Bay, Woods has had very little fantasy value.  Five points in Week 2, eight in Week 3, and only nine last week.  Now he faces a tough test against the surprising undefeated 49ers who currently have a top 10 pass defense.  Get 'em out.

Atlanta Falcons @ Arizona Cardinals



  • Get 'Em In
    • Mohamed Sanu - Julio Jones is banged up and has not practiced this week yet with a bad hip.  Meanwhile Sanu has continued to produce at a solid pace posting fantasy numbers of 13, 18, and 15 the last three weeks.  That puts Sanu in the category of WR2 when you consider those numbers along with his opponent this week.  Get 'em in.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • David Johnson -The Falcons have been putrid, that is no secret.  And I think Dan Quinn is quite close to the unemployment line.  But David Johnson is banged up and questionable at best, and this game is going to by an aerial assault.  And you probably don't realize either that as bad as Atlanta is against the pass, they are actually decent against the run.  I'd stay clear of Johnson if you can.

Dallas Cowboys @ New York Jets



  • Get 'Em In
    • Ezekiel Elliot - After two straight losses, the Cowboys need to get back to what works.  And what works is running this offense through Zeke.  Barring an absolute implosion, the Jets will not get out to a 28 point lead on Dallas, like Green Bay did a week ago forcing the Cowboys to abandon the run game.  The Jets run defense is middle of the pack, but will be without linebacker CJ Mosley.  I have been waiting for a true Zeke performance, and I think this is finally the week.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Robbie Anderson - I was off of Anderson last week, and I am again.  As I said a week ago, Anderson's game is all downfield, and while Darnold being back brings that option back into the picture, the Cowboys have been really good at limiting downfield action.  Bell and Crowder should have good days against the Cowboys defense, but not Anderson.

Tennessee Titans @ Denver Broncos



  • Get 'Em In
    • Derrick Henry - This is just straight numbers.  Henry has scored every week this year besides one, and the Broncos run defense is more generous than a wealthy neighborhood on Halloween.  You know the ones that give out FULL candy bars.  Anyway, I'm letting you know that Henry is scoring not once, but twice this week in Denver.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Joe Flacco - If you actually needed me to tell you not to play Joe Flacco, retire from your fantasy football league right now.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Los Angeles Chargers


  • Get 'Em In
    • Chargers Defense - With both teams absolutely ravaged by injuries, this is a game I stay away from with my skill players.  But with **Googles Steelers quarterback** Devlin Hodges more than likely at the helm for the Steelers this week, the Chargers defense is a must play.  Even if Rudolph somehow clears the concussion protocol, which would be wild after taking a nap on the field last week, the Chargers are still a top defensive play in Week 6.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Philip Rivers - Rivers laid an egg last week, and thankfully did so on my bench.  He will be riding the pine again this week.  His offensive line took another blow with his center Pouncey being placed on season ending IR, and I think he we will be seeing a lot of TJ Watt in his face.  And to the Steelers credit, their pass defense really has improved since acquiring Minkah Fitzpatrick from Miami earlier in the season.

Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers



  • Get 'Em In
    • Kerryon Johnson - And right when I say the Lions per usual have no running game, POOF, a running game appears in the wild.  Kerryon has become a true workhorse in the Lions offense averaging nearly 25 touches a game.  The Packers continue to struggle against the run, and the Lions would be wise to feed Johnson and keep Aaron Rodgers on the sideline.  Kerryon should be an RB1 this week.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Kenny Golladay - I own Kenny Golladay, and I myself am not benching him. and neither should you.  But I put him here as a warning.  Yes, at times the Packers secondary had issues with the Cowboys passing game a week ago, but this is still a top tier unit in that department.  They will make things difficult on Golladay, and with the Lions focusing on the run, or at least they should be, it could be a quiet night for Golladay.
