It seems like every week we are talking about a new injury that changes the fantasy landscape, and this week is no exception. On to the next week, where we have plenty of interesting matchups to tempt us. The Chargers have been pretty great against WR1s from opposing teams, so I have concerns about Randall Cobb ($8,200).
Much like the way we faded Jimmy Graham following his breakout game in Seattle, we're not buying into Murray's Week 6 stock. I'm going to lean on Lacy once more in tournaments but I'm not sure I have the stomach for him in cash. I reduced my exposure to Robinson from nearly 100 percent to 50 percent, and he ended up with more touchdowns (2) than Hankerson's total FanDuel points (1.8). Lacy takes on a Chargers defense that's been gashed for more than 132 rushing yards per game - 29th in the NFL.
Jamaal Charles tore his ACL, ending his season and crushing fantasy line-ups around the world in the process. The Eagles offense doesn't believe in a feature back and Philly is up against New York's stop unit, which has checked rushers to only 80.6 yards a contests - second lowest in the league. The same can’t be said for the other two teams on the list.
However, should you have a more lucrative option on your team or you are choosing to play a defense based on the matchup, I may hold off on starting the Atlanta Falcons defense in Week 6. This quartet supplies a surprisingly good group of fantasy stars outside of all the injured players in Dallas.
If there was a bet for a team to get shut out this week, I'd lay my money down on either the Redskins or the Browns. Maybe, but not this week. Blount has actually out-touched Lewis 32-27 the past two weeks so what you're really choosing between is receptions and red zone work.
Ertz started getting more involved in the offense last week and the Giants are atrocious against TEs. The focal point of the Kansas City Chiefs found himself on IR with a hard to watch knee injury.
Walsh is 6 for 8 on field goal attempts and 8 for 9 on extra points. I am not. I'll ride Peterson, the Vikings defense ($4,500) and Blair Walsh ($4,600), but I' m not touching their passing game.
Allen Robinson & Allen Hurns - Jaguars: It's not often that you find a team's No. 1 and No. 2 WRs in the top 10 for fantasy football, but that is just what happened this weekend as the duo combined for 12 catches, 188 yards, and 3 TDs (Robinson 7/72/2 - Hurns 5/116/1). Jeffery was still out, so I didn't use Cutler, but he still delivered a solid game.
Matthews will face off against the Giants, which is a nice matchup for him.
