Three Big Names to Consider Dropping

Mike Davis
Davis is far from what he was in Carolina and playing significantly below his ADP. With the emergence of Cordarrelle Patterson, Mike Davis has seen his share of volume decrease significantly. Fantasy managers who were able to snag Patterson early should be ecstatic, but those who drafted Davis with the hopes of being an RB2 are not. While Davis had his best fantasy day (11 pts). That is Davis’ only game that he went over 10 fantasy where he got out-touched by Cordarrelle Patterson both in the run game and the passing game. If you are in desperate need of a roster spot, I do not see a problem dropping Davis.

Brandon Aiyuk
Aiyuk started off the season rough with being a ‘healthy scratch’ Week 1. Ever since that it came out that Aiyuk “fell out of Kyle Shanahan’s good graces,” Aiyuk has been a major bust. Aiyuk has had one game this season where he has been over five fantasy points. His highest target share in a game this year is six, and even in that game he only caught four out of those six passes. With a revolving door at QB, and neither one seemingly favoring Aiyuk, it may be time to move on if you need the space. Deebo Samuel along with George Kittle are the focal point of the 49ers offense and if Aiyuk can’t produce with Kittle sidelined, I have a hard time seeing him having any type of impact moving forward.

Ryan Tannehill
Ah yes, everyone’s late-round sleeper quarterback. Now, it is obvious that Tannehill is a prisoner to his situation in which both of his star wide receivers have been hobbled, but even when A.J. Brown and Julio Jones are healthy Tannehill may be dropable. Derrick Henry has, in short, been the Titans offense. Since Week 1 Henry has rushed over 28 attempts in every game. I understand that it is a long season and the Titans will have to give Henry some breathing room every now again, which is why I think Tannehill may be a good streaming option for your starter in later weeks, but not a starter you are rolling out week-to-week.

3 Guys to Trade For

DK Metcalf
Metcalf has continued to add to his stellar fantasy portfolio throughout the 2021 season. Now, Metcalf has to continue to produce without star quarterback Russell Wilson who is out several weeks due to a finger injury. This may cause Metcalf owners to sell way too low on him which makes now the best time to jump on getting him at a discounted price. The expectation is that Pete Carol will not open the fool playbook for Geno Smith, which will open the intermediate routes for Metcalf. Tyler Lockett is much more of a deep threat and I envision without, arguably the best deep ball guy in the NFL under center, that those attempts may be few and far in between.

Leonard Fournette
How much more obvious can the Bucs make it, Leonard Fournette is their guy. Fournette is the lead back in one of the most lethal offenses in the NFL and has been used in large quantity in the passing and running attack. Last week he rushed for 67 yards and a touchdown on only 12 attempts and caught four balls for 43 yards. In the past two weeks, Fournette has rushed 32 times and has had four receptions in all of those games as well. If you are looking for an RB2 Fournette has the volume that you can buy low and get a huge reward on. However, the Fournette doubters are getting slimmer by the day, so I would make sure to check in on him soon.

Keenan Allen
Another player in a very high-powered offense. The emergence of Mike Williams has stunted Allen’s boom production, but he still has been a consistent WR2 for all fantasy owners. Allen has been over 10 fantasy points in every game except one this year and has had double-digit targets in every game as well. Even in the two games where he didn’t go over 10 targets, he was still right there (eight and nine). If you are looking to round out your team, buying low on Allen may be a good play.

QBs to Stream In Week 6

Carson Wentz
A heartbreaking loss for the Colts Monday night against the Ravens seemingly overshadowed Wentz who had a career game. Wentz went 25-35 with 402 yards passing and two touchdowns. Frank Reich and the Colts are going to want to come out and bury a weak Texans team after the brutal loss they suffered. Wentz seems to be becoming more in sync with his pass-catchers getting everyone involved early. Paris Cambell got significant work in long third downs, Michael Pittman gave a jolt to the offense and the backs out of the backfield were instrumental in the screen game. Expect Wentz to have another big game Sunday.

Taylor Heneike
Heneike is going up against a horrid Kansas City who has allowed the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks only behind, guess who, the Washington Football Team. This is another get-right game, but for the opposite sideline. The Chiefs have had a tough schedule the first five weeks, and I am sure no one expected them to be sitting at 2-3; not even them. I expect the Chiefs to go up early which will force the football team to abandon the run and get themselves into a shootout.

Baker Mayfield
Coming off a good week in LA, Mayfield may need to work some similar magic in order to beat an undefeated Cardinals team. Mayfield went 23-32 for 305 yards and two touchdowns. The Cardinals have one of the worst rush defenses in the league, which will open up Baker to execute on some of the big plays he missed during the Vikings game. While I do not expect the passing yards to be there, I do expect 2-3 touchdowns that will keep your fantasy team in the game this week.

A rough week for the kid after a good outing last week. Let’s see if I can switch the momentum back over to my side once again.

Last Week:
QB. Aaron Rodgers: 14th (20 pts)
RB. Derrick Henry: 1st (31pts)
RB. Dalvin Cook (out)
WR. Justin Jefferson: 21st (12 pts)
WR. Ja’Marr Chase: 6th (21 pts)
TE. Travis Kelce: 6th (11 pts)
K. Rodrigo Blankenship: 17th (8 pts)
D. New England Patriots: 15th (5 pts)

This Week:
QB: Patrick Mahomes
RB: Nick Chubb
RB: Leonard Fournette
WR: Keenan Allen
WR: Chris Godwin
TE: Travis Kelce
K: Graham Gano
D: Colts

Happy Week 6!
