Aaron Rodgers went down, Adrian Peterson heated up, and week 6 proved to a tumultuous ride. Whether you’re simply trying to keep the ship afloat after losing a player to injury, or stocking up to make a push for the playoffs, we’ve got you covered.
QB: Brett Hundley (10% owned vs NO)
Even though he threw three interceptions in relief of Rodgers, none of them were his fault, and with a full week of practice as QB1 he’ll perform solidly against the Saints.
RB: Orleans Darkwa (8% owned vs SEA)
Darkwa is undoubtedly the feature back in a Giants offense that lacks and exterior firepower.
WR: Robby Anderson (13% owned @MIA)
Anderson received a season-high twelve targets against the Patriots and has a good chance to continue this trend moving on.
TE: Zach Miller (24% owned vs CAR)
Miller has been Trubisky’s top red zone target, and faces a Panthers defense that has been shaken by injuries.
QB: Dak Prescott (@SF)
Prescott has carried over his confidence from last season, and he plays the 49ers, so yeah.
QB: Alex Smith (@OAK)
Since Derek Carr’s injury, the entire Oakland Raiders team has struggled. Smith will bounce back from his rough week 6 performance.
RB: Jay “AJ” Ajayi (vs NYJ)
Ajayi has gotten 25+ carries in each of the last 2 weeks, and gets a great opportunity to breakout against the Jets.
RB: Leonard Fournette (@IND)
Fournette has been explosive as of late, and will to dismantle a Colts defense that ranks among the worst in the league.
WR: Julio Jones (@NE)
Jones is set to breakout for the first time this season against that infamous Patriots secondary.
WR: Demaryius Thomas (@LAC)
Emmanuel Sanders went down and fantasy owners should expect Siemian to increase his amount of targets towards Thomas.
TE: Travis Kelce (@OAK)
Kelce was correctly picked to be a bust last week, but will turn things around and breakout against the Raiders.
QB: Tom Brady (vs ATL)
Brady has struggled to continue his early season dominance in recent weeks, and won’t turn it around this week against the Falcons secondary.
RB: Demarco Murray (@CLE)
While Cleveland is typically a featured defense on our breakouts list, their front 7 has been effective against the run so far, and Murray lacks consistency.
WR: AJ Green (@PIT)
Green has been explosive since the hiring of Offensive Coordinator Bill Lazor, but will cool off against a Steelers defense that has given up the fewest points to WRs this year.
TE: Jordan Reed (@PHI)
Reed has been hampered by injuries so far, but won’t get things rolling this week against the 5-1 Eagles.
Good luck in Week 7!
