NFL Fantasy Football 2021 The players to look for to strengthen your team in Fantasy Football
SThis is one of the most difficult weeks for the Fantasy waiver. From the beginning, there are not as clear options as in the previous ones, but also because there are SIX teams that rest and they are not a small thing, but some of the best offenses in the league.
Bills (Josh Allen, Zach Moss, Devin Singletary, Stefon Diggs, Emmanuel Sanders, Dawson Knox, the defense), Cowboys (Dak Prescott, Zeke Elliiott, CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, Dalton Schultz, the defense), Vikings (Dalvin Cook, Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen), Steelers (Chase Claypool, Diontae Johnson, Najee Harris), Chargers (Justin Herbert, Austin Ekeler, Mike Williams, Keenan Allen) and Jaguars (James Robinson, Laviska Shenault) will not see action, so gaps will have to be filled to avoid puncturing at a point in the season when the margin for error is narrowing.
As always, the maximum goal of winning this week, so looking for players who are without a team in at least 50% of the leagues in NFL.com heading into week 6.
D’Ernest Johnson (RB CLE, 0.2%): Kareem Hunt is already fixed that he will not play on Thursday. Nick Chubb is doubt. If they are not, Johnson would be the horse on the ground, even though rookie Demetric Felton (1.1%) beats him in snaps in the season 35 vs 20 but he has ZERO DRIVES, so Johnson (three carries) would be the main on the ground, with evidence of a 13-95 game in 2020 in which Chubb left early against Dallas.
Khalil Herbert (RB CHI, 48.8%): If Damien Williams is still out, he’s the team’s running back. He had 19.2 points. A big problem: he is going to have a very difficult duel against the Bucs. But surely it is better to have a possible starting RB in your bench than other options. You can also think about the future.
Alex Collins (RB SEA, 53.5%): he ended up with chain and glute injuries, but ran more than 100 yards to the Steelers. New Orleans isn’t an easy defense, but with Chris Carson out for a couple more weeks, he’s the starting RB.
Devontae Booker (RB NYG, 53.6%): rescued 10.9 points in a game that got out of control very early. If Saquon is still out, against Carolina he would have more opportunities.
Devonta Freeman (RB BAL, 0.4%): Baltimore did not activate Ty’Son Williams and Latavius Murray was injured. Freeman, Murray and Ball all had between 30% and 40% of the snaps, but it was Freeman who had the best ground performance. Paint to be the starter if Murray isn’t there.
JD McKissic (RB WFT, 34.3%): With Washington’s offensive middle out, he had 8 receptions and 105 total hits on his way to 19 points, RB12 before Monday Night. If the casualties continue, someone will have to catch passes and against those Green Bay linebackers … oil.
Rhamondre Stevenson (RB NE, 1.0%): came out with ankle problems Damien Harris. He came back, but this is one of the advance purchases that we have been proclaiming as a strategy for weeks.
Jeff Wilson (RB SF, 5.6%): eligible to get off the PUP list this week. The Niners’ backfield is congested and without a clear leader. Wilson has more experience than the two rookies and some future success. It could be a lottery ticket that is cashed out later.
Other substitutes to keep on your advance purchase radar: Nyheim Hines (Colts, 31.4%), Larry Rountree (Chargers, 0.1%), AJ Dillon (Packers, 46.2 %%), Jeremy McNichols (Titans, 0.3%), Kalen Ballage (Steelers, 0.1%)
Darnell Mooney (WR CHI, 37.8%): WR scored for the first time last week to have their second game of at least 15 points with Justin Fields starting. There’s a game coming up against Tampa, which is aiming to be high on points against the fifth-worst defense against the WRs this year. Mooney is Chicago’s WR with the most targets, catches, yards and touchdowns since the QB trade (24-14-214-1). Worse Flex options could be.
Jaylen Waddle (WR MIA, 66.0%): It is well above what is ‘allowed’, but in a third of leagues a player is available who, in Tua’s two complete games, was 4-61-1 and 10-70-2. 14 points for a week bye? TAKE IT!
Donovan Peoples-Jones (WR CLE, 0.5%): He won’t catch a Hail Mary every week … but with Jarvis Landry in doubt for Thursday and Odell Beckham shaken off his shoulder again, there may be a starting WR1. The bad news: Keenum may be the QB on Thursday.
TY Hilton (WR IND, 24.4%): debuted and did the usual damage to the Texans (4-80). The problem is that the Colts are starting to have too many mouths (hands) to feed with Pittman, Cambpell, the two TE, Hines, Taylor, but Hilton’s veterancy could win Wentz’s trust. Against the very injured perimeter of the Niners he is a good option.
Ricky Seals-Jones (TE WFT, 2.1%): I got past him last week, but with so many injuries, he and McLaurin are left to catch passes.
Zach Ertz (TE ARI, 44.3%): The new Arizona TE, which many think is pure Air Raid, but they also used 24% of the plays two TEs, but the injury of Maxx Williams changed their plans. Williams had two games of at least 16 games this year.
Trey Lance (QB SF, 29.4%): He did not score against the Cardinals and had an interception, but his running production left him at 14.58 points. With two weeks of preparation against the Colts who were the # 30 efficiency defense against passing, he should pay better dividends. And don’t forget the lesson from Jalen Hurts: you don’t need to be a good quarterback in reality to be a good one on the virtual grid if you run or pitch a lot in junk time.
Justin Fields (QB CHI, 32.7%): To date, Fields has not surpassed 14 points in Fantasy or 209 passing yards in any game, but the Bucs could score much early and have to come back, shooting or legs. In desperate cases … and it might have acceptable numbers.
One of my favorite tactics is play defensive rotation against bad league teams. Jaguars and Jets they are being the worst teams in the league. Jeans They go with a rookie substitute QB because of the injury, Lions and giants they have QB delivery machines, Big ben he’s on the decline, Justin Fields is sacked at an alarming rate since his time in the NCAA, Seattle without Russ is an option, and there are also bad-weather duels that could be exploited.
Patriots (46.3%): They go against the Jets. They will hardly repeat the 19 points from Week 2, but all the games except against Dak and Brady had at least two sacks and in four games they have allowed less than 24 points.
Panthers (32.9%): You don’t have to be the 2000 Ravens to have a good Fantasy defense. Carolina, the example, that in 5 of 6 games has at least 7 points because they pressure and generate losses. A guy named Daniel Jones will be his rival next week. We repeat: in the absence of many options …
Packers (67.4%): well above the average, but with few options and against such an injured Washington it can be a recipe for points, such as bad KC and their 8 points, the maximum for them so far this season.
For the love of all things blessed, don’t burn a waiver for a kicker. But if the one you have has disappointed or you have it bye, take later in the week one of the three that appear first, who are in the Top 10, or the last one that seems to have a favorable duel.
Matt Prater (K ARI, 44.8%): Did you know that the best kicker in Fantasy is free in more than half of the leagues and goes to Houston?
Nick Folk (K NE, 35.5%): Contrary to what was seen against Dallas, they are not the best team in the red zone. Against the Jets he already had no of his three double-digit points games.
Matt Gay (K LAR, 44.1%): consistency: 8 points in each of the six games. Be careful, curiously measuring Detroit could mean more extra points than field goals.
Jason Sanders (K MIA, 24.9%): Last year’s best kicker has disappointed, but with Tua at the helm, the offense has more punch and Atlanta is a poor defense.
