Week 5 Massive Risers and Fallers!!


Jahmyr Gibbs

The Lions' coaches have said they will be unleashing Gibbs upon his return from injury. You may not necessarily buy it, but he can't be used much less than he has been so far. Couldn't hurt to try and snag him while his value is low... the RB market is super top heavy.

Chris Olave

Olave has started to taper off since Alvin Kamara's return, but I just don't see it continuing. This offense looked good with Olave leading it, and Derek Carr's shoulder will only get healthier with time.

Joe Mixon

Mixon's usage is rising, and - as usual - he has no real competition for the important touches. With Joe Burrow getting healthier and Ja'Marr Chase starting to get back to what he is, this Bengals offense is poised to be potent in the near future.

James Cook

Cook's usage is still great, albeit not the elite usage he was seeing in the earlier weeks. He played 62% of snaps last week, but managed only 8 touches. This is bound to produce more touches than 8 every week. Buy him as it may be your last chance.

Jaylen Waddle

Waddle has had a slow start to the fantasy season, but he is certainly seeing work. He was the Dolphins' most targeted player this week (10,) and is a main focal point of the offense, especially now that De'Von Achane is hurt. He should be a WR2 the rest of the way.


Emari Demercado

Emari likely has weekly FLEX upside, but he isn't as powerful as James Conner, which doesn't bode well for him playing behind this offensive line. Furthermore, Keontay Ingram is listed ahead of him on the depth chart. Yikes.

Raheem Mostert

Yes, Mostert will probably get you some good weeks for the next month or so, but when Achane returns, paired with Jeff Wilson getting in the mix, Mostert won't have much upside. You can probably trade him now - especially to a desperate team with an 0-5 or 1-4 record - for maximum returns.

Justin Jefferson

Rumors are flying that the Vikings could shut Jefferson down for the season if they aren't turned around by the time he's ready to return. When it comes down to it, I'm not willing to risk that chance.

Dallas Goedert

Goedert had been a total fantasy non-factor until this past week, where he broke out with 8 catches en route to 25.7 fantasy points. I'm not going to be taking a one in five chance that he will produce for my lineup any given week, so I'm seeling him to someone you can pitch the big week to.

Zack Moss

Unfortunately for Moss owners, their time having him as a weekly RB1 are going to be up soon. He is however, a valuable handcuff, and someone - especially your league's Jonathan Taylor owner - could be willing to swap someone with less limited upside to you.


Rhamondre Stevenson

Rhamondre's value can't get any lower, but he'll always have the upside he possessed when having a 20% target share instead of 10%. With New England struggling this badly, maybe they'll give their most dynamic playmaker an increased workload. I don't feel confident enough to pay up for him, but if you have him, hold on for now.

Anthony Richardson

When healthy, Richardson looks like a locked and loaded top 5 fantasy QB. I'm holding onto him until he's back and healthy for your playoff run.

De'Von Achane

Similar to Richardson, Achane has that fantasy playoff dynamism potential. You won't be able to recoup fair value for him with his knee injury status up in the air, so just wait on it.

Brandon Aiyuk

Aiyuk looks like a legit low end WR1 or high end WR2 in fantasy the way Brock Purdy is using him. His value is way too high to trade for him right now, but he isn't somebody I want off my roster. He's his QB's favorite target, and this offense is moving the ball at will right now.

Jordan Addison

With Justin Jefferson out for the foreseeable future, Kevin O'Connell has said he's ready to unleash Addison. Don't let go of him just yet!
