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

SHARE:

Last week was a mixed bag of results.  A couple of home runs, a couple of duds, and a couple of where in the world did that come from?!  I am looking at you Brandin Cooks.  Let's hope for less Covid headaches this week and more big time results.  Week 6, let's roll.

Denver Broncos @ New England Patriots

  • Get 'Em In
    • Nick Folk - What better way to start off the article than with a kicker!  I don't know what it is, but something in my gut tells me this game will be boring, defensive, and a ton of stalled drives.  Cam is coming off a few weeks of no action.  Drew Lock is in the same boat.  Both teams have injuries and are missing key players.  I just feel there will be nothing pretty about this game and I can see the Patriots winning this along the lines of something like 19-16.  Folks has been pretty reliable, dating back to last year with his stint with New England.  This season he has only two misses, but one was from over 40, and the other from over 50.  On what is forecasted to be a calm, sunny, Autumn day in New England, Folk should have no issue driving home a few kicks.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Melvin Gordon - So I wrote about this game last week as it was not postponed yet when I put the article out.  But my Get'Em Out is going to remain the same.  This is what I wrote last week about Gordon.  Nobody is better at neutralizing their opponent's best player than Bill Belichick.   Like I said, they just kept Pat Mahomes down for almost four entire quarters.   Melvin Gordon is the Broncos best player at this current time and that's not saying much.   Bill will force the Broncos to throw the ball and shut Gordon down.   Send Gordon to the bench until next week when Miami heads to Denver."   To add to that, Gordon got popped with a DUI this week and his availability is in question. 

Houston Texans @ Tennessee Titans

  • Get 'Em In
    • Ryan Tannehill I cannot believe that Ryan Tannehill is like, still good.  Like legitimately good.  But he is, and I need to stop doubting him.  Following a few weeks of turmoil with all the Covid issues and lack of practices, Tannehill casually came out and beat the undefeated Bills with three passing touchdowns and one more rushing.  This week he faces an even easier opponent with the Texans defense coming to town.  I don't even care about the short week since Tennessee had to play on Tuesday night.  If Tannehill can do what he did without hardly any practice against the Bills, he can do the same on a short week against Houston.  Start with confidence.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Brandin Cooks - Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice, shame on me.  I don't think I am going to be shameful.  Cooks came out of nowhere for a 30 point fantasy performance this past week.  That was against the woeful Jaguars though.  The Titans secondary is nothing to write home about, but as a full defensive unit they are leaps and bounds better than Jacksonville.  If Cooks goes off again, I will just retire from providing fantasy advice. 

Cleveland Browns @ Pittsburgh Steelers

  • Get 'Em In
    • Ben Roethlisberger - Big Ben has been a consistent starter even at the ripe age of 38.  He has scored at least 23 points in his four starts this season and scored 27 twice.  He is basically averaging 250 yards and three scores a week, so you know what you're going to get.  This week against the 28th ranked Browns defense, 250 and three should be Ben's floor with the hope he finally cracks 30 fantasy points.  Ben is a strong start moving forward.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Austin Hooper - Hooper is coming off back-to-back double digit fantasy days, but should find that threshold a little harder to hit come Sunday.  The Steelers have been strong at defending the tight end position all year, ranking in the top 10.  Last week they held Zach Ertz to just one catch on six targets.  If they can do that to Ertz, they can do that to Hooper.

Baltimore Ravens @ Philadelphia Eagles

  • Get 'Em In
    • Mark Andrews - There is not doubt that Andrews is Jackson's favorite target to throw to.  Andrew leads all Baltimore pass catches in averaging just about six targets a game.  Still seems low, but that is because of Baltimore's tendency to lean on the run.  Last week I talked about how poor the Eagles defend against tight ends, leading to Eric Ebron having a serviceable fantasy day.  Mark Andrews is far better than Eric Ebron though who is a touchdown dependent tight end.  Andrews always has an involvement in the offense and I expect a large output from the young tight end come Sunday.  I predict five catches, for 61 yards and at least one score.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Miles Sanders - I continue to stand strong on the Miles Sanders is not that good bandwagon.  But maybe that is just my Eagles hatred showing.  Regardless, last week he ran for 80 yards on 11 carries.  74 of those 80 yards came on one single play.  See why I continue to feel he isn't that good?  That means he basically had ten carries for six yards.  Guess who has an even better run defense than Pittsburgh? Yeah you got it. Baltimore.

Washington Football Team @ New York Giants

  • Get 'Em In
    • Darius Slayton - Washington's secondary stinks and someone has to catch the ball. 
  • BONUS Get 'Em In
    • Terry McLaurin - New York's secondary stinks and someone has to catch the ball.

Atlanta Falcons @ Minnesota Vikings

  • Get 'Em In
    • Justin Jefferson - Jefferson is the clear number 2 wideout in Minnesota. cAlbeit for a poor passing offense. Jefferson had posted back to back double digit fantasy outputs Week 3 and 4, then put up a dud in a juicy matchup last week at Seattle.  Regardless he has a pretty safe floor as your Wide Receiver 3 in what is another great matchup on paper against Atlanta.  In a game where Dalvin Cook will be on the sideline (groin), the Vikings could take to the air just a bit more than usual.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Hayden Hurst - The hope was Hurst would fall right into Austin Hooper's role, if not be even better, but that just has not happened.  Hurst has shown to have no downfield appeal at all and he has been nothing more than a safety net most games for Matt Ryan who has looked rather terrible.  That makes Hurst basically touchdown dependent against a Vikings defense that is not good, yet last week Will Dissly was the first tight end to score on them all season.

Detroit Lions @ Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Get 'Em In
    • Adrian Peterson - The obvious answer is Kenny Golladay, but that seemed like a layup as you all know to start him.  But what about AP?  For whatever reason, the Lions who are going nowhere fast, just will not commit to the rookie Swift.  They continue to give Peterson a solid share on the ground, especially in games that they can actually dictate. This could easily be one of those games.  The Jaguars defense is bad against the pass and rush.  If the Lions can get out in front with hopefully a few Golladay touchdowns, then they can have Stafford stuff the ball into Peterson's gut with maybe a few of those being some goal line touches.  Play AP as a RB3/Flex in PPR, and a RB2 in non-PPR this week.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Tyler Eifert- Shockingly enough, up until just now Eifert has stayed healthy all year.  Something he has serious problems doing.  He has also had a decent role in the Jaguars offense seeing a combined 13 targets the last two weeks, and even found the end zone back in Week 3.  With tight end being a barren wasteland for fantasy output this season, those have all been acceptable outcomes.  But this week he finally did show up in the injury report with a neck issue.  Don't love that.  And Gardner Minshew is building really good chemistry with his top 3 wideouts.  Even with a poor Lions defense coming to town, things are stacking up against Eifert.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Indianapolis Colts

  • Get 'Em In
    • T.Y. Hilton - Oh boy I can be stubborn.  I just refuse to quit on T.Y. Hilton.  Every year Hilton is good for a few explosions and he sure is overdue.  He at least finally got warm last week with his biggest output of the year.  Hilton saw ten targets and brought in six of them for 69 yards.  So not great, but it was nice to see SOMETHING.  Hilton then came out this week and spoke about needing to be better and do more.  If there was a week to give him one more chance, its this week.  Colts are up against a soft Bengals secondary, and Phillip Rivers has been getting criticized also.  Here is to hoping they both come out with something to prove.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Tyler Boyd - The Colts defense still is not getting the recognition they deserve, despite being the number one overall ranked defense in the league.  They are top 10 against the pass and Boyd is coming off a matchup against Baltimore's top ten ranked defense which held him in check for 4 for 42.  That provides a lot of insight into his potential output this week against Indy.  It's tough to bench your top dogs, but Boyd is looking at another clunker.

Chicago Bears @ Carolina Panthers

  • Get 'Em In
    • David Montgomery - Montgomery has not received more than 16 rushes all year, and has only had ten touches each of the past two weeks, so any hope for him is becoming very bleak.  Week 6 presents his final straw.  The Panthers are terrible against the run and are coming off a gashing from Todd Gurley.  The Panthers run defense has been awful dating back to last year, but to add insult to injury, they just lost their run stuffing DT, Kawann Short for the season.  All of this should give Montgomery a RB2 floor this Sunday with a RB1 ceiling. 
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Jimmy Graham - Graham has been a pleasant surprise this season for Bears fans and fantasy owners.  He is averaging 11 fantasy points a week in PPR, which is quality output from the tight end position.  However, Graham has been following the one week good, one week not so good pattern.  He is on schedule for a not so good week.  I clearly would not make a rash decision based on that, however, the Panthers have been surprisingly strong against opposing tight ends, ranking in the Top 10.  If you take away Graham's touchdowns this season, his fantasy numbers drop dramatically.  He has little to no role outside of the red zone and with the thought the Bears may actually be able to rely on the run for the first time this season, Graham makes for a risky start. 

New York Jets @ Miami Dolphins

  • Get 'Em In
    • Ryan Fitzpatrick - With quarterbacks like Russell Wilson and Drew Brees on bye weeks, there is most definitely folks out there looking for a streamer.  Look no further than the almighty Ryan Fitzpatrick.  Coming off a shredding of the defending NFC Champions, Fitz now has a prime matchup to have a Fitzmagic moment. I do not need to go into detail about the Jets and how bad they are.  Start your Dolphins this week with confidence.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Le'Veon Bell - He doesn't play here anymore.  Pay attention, would ya?!
Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • Get 'Em In
    • Robert Tonyan -  There is something to be said for riding the hot hand.  You got to ride until the hand is not hot anymore.  Tonyan has 5 touchdowns in the last THREE GAMES.  ARod appears to have a new favorite target and this game should be one where each team is airing it out.  Tampa has also allowed a tight end to score the past two games.  There is a very good chance Tonyan has a large role in the game plan again and that he finds the endzone. 
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Marquez Valdes-Scantling - Scantling has been constant for the Packers in terms of health.  Yet, playing in games where Adams was out injured, and games where Lazard has been out injured, has not translated to better results.  Scantling has not caught more than 4 balls in a game this year and now with Rodgers new found love of Robert Tonyan, I do not foresee that changing.

Los Angeles Rams @ San Francisco 49ers

  • Get 'Em In
    • Raheem Mostert - Raheem "Must Start" Mostert."  I was skeptical last week when he was making his first return back since spraining his MCL, leading me to keep him on my bench.  That however left me with 14 points on the bench and proving he still is the go to guy out of the 49ers backfield.  Mostert's explosiveness gives him the chance to get to the endzone on any given play.  The Niner's have been wise to get him involved in the passing game slightly too.  Jimmy G has looked less than stellar and besides George Kittle, Mostert is the 49ers best offensive weapon.  As long as he stays healthy, he is a RB2 the rest of the season.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Any Rams Running Back - The Rams just cannot settle on a back, making it a backfield to avoid.  All three of, Henderson, Akers, and Brown have some sort of role every single game and it's hard to predict which, if any, will be the one to get in the endzone.  It's a situation to just completely avoid if you can.

Kansas City Chiefs @ Buffalo Bills

  • Get 'Em In
    • Mecole Hardman - Hardman has been a reliable fantasy source as a WR3 since Week 3.  Now with Sammy Watkins taking his yearly injury vacation, right on schedule, Hardman should see a small uptick in usage.  The last three weeks, Hardman is averaging almost 13 fantasy points a game.  That makes for a strong floor for that WR3 spot in your lineup and with Watkins out, it gives him a small chance at a WR1 output.  Start Hardman knowing you'll get something.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Devin Singletary - Singletary has only rushed more than 13 times once all season.  And his largest yardage total has only been 71 yards and he has only crossed the goal line once.  Singletary just has not been a quality back this season and that shouldn't change much this week.  First off, the Bills want the ball in Josh Allen's hands as much as possible, evident by the lack of goal line work from both Singletary and Zach Moss.  Second, this is a game where Allen will NEED to have the ball in his hands.  If there are any players you would want to start from the Bills it would be Josh Allen, Diggs, and Beasley. Tread lightly with John Brown this week with Tyrann Mathieu lurking back there.

Arizona Cardinals @ Dallas Cowboys

  • Get 'Em In
    • Kyler Murray - I really don't think the Cowboys will have any clue whatsoever how to stop Murray.  He should run circles around a defense that could not even stop the Giants offense.  Murray should get it done all day on his feet, and through the air to Hopkins who could be looking at his largest output of the season.  I am so down on the Cowboys defense I would even be comfortable start Fitzgerald and Andy Isabella this week.  It's that BAD. 
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Amari Cooper - I know this seems extreme, but Cooper's snap total has gone down every single week.  When he will be on the field come Monday, it will probably be Patrick Peterson on the other side of the line of scrimmage staring at him.  You also need to factor in the fact Dak Prescott is no longer under center and its Andy Dalton.  And in the small sample size we got from Andy, he seemed to really like throwing to Michael Gallup.  Something to keep an eye on moving forward.
