Week 6: The Week of the Undervalued WR



Week 6 has come and gone, and just like that, the NFL regular season is a third of the way done. Fantasy leagues are starting to separate, and you should have a clearer picture of which teams are the good ones and which are the bottom tier, and scavenge for trade candidates accordingly.




Buys:

Bijan Robinson


Based on our Instagram comments section, you wouldn’t know Bijan is the current RB8. His owners are concerned about his low usage and lack of TD production. Luckily, this is dampening his value more than it should. This Falcons offense plays through their RBs and the run game, and Robinson and Tyler Allgeier both see so much work that Bijan is still viable with a low workload. I think the TDs will come too, as we get further into the season, either a QB change is coming soon or Smith will emphasize keeping the ball out of Desmond Ridder’s hands even more.



Christian Watson


It’s been a tough few weeks for the Packers’ offense as a whole, and Christian Watson owners are in serious panic mode. Likely being a fourth or fifth round pick, Watson has sat out multiple weeks, and not done much when he has been on the field. His owner could be losing games, and many people are seeing Romeo Doubs being Jordan Love’s favorite target and souring on Watson. I think this offense gets back to what we saw in the first couple of weeks, and Christian Watson is the main source of explosiveness they’ll have.



Brandon Aiyuk


Aiyuk has cemented himself as the number one pass catcher in Brock Purdy’s San Francisco offense. Yes, Christian McCaffrey will always be there to vulture some receiving work, but Aiyuk has been vastly out-targeting him, and even amassed 10 targets in week 6 when CMC went down. Aiyuk is Purdy’s go-to guy, so much so that he has made George Kittle feel like an afterthought. He should be a top contender to be on any and every trade shortlist.



Jordan Addison


Through one Justin Jefferson-less game, Addison stepped up with a TD and a healthy 16.7% target share. Kevin O’Connell has said that he will be the guy now that Jefferson is out for at least a month, and I believe him. I want my stock in him now before he really explodes.



Davante Adams


Adams has been a matchup killer the past two weeks as he has largely floundered, watching Jakobi Meyers be the focal point of the Vegas offense. This is classic Josh McDaniels, but I can’t ignore the fact that despite this, Adams is still tied for fourth in the league in targets with 59, despite leaving a couple of games early. I’m not convinced that Davante is truly the decoy he has been as of late.




Sells:

Rhamondre Stevenson


I’m coming off just recently telling you to buy Rhamondre, and if you did, you probably bought him at a good value. Coming off one of his better weeks though, I think he’s now being a bit overvalued. There’s still no guarantee the Pats’ offense ever looks good, and even if it does, will Rhamondre take some snaps back from Zeke? His value still hasn’t settled down, and right now it’s on an uptick.



Zach Evans


We’ve been doing this all season with the waiver RBs, and Evans is no exception. There’s no guarantee he is just THE guy. Sell him to a desperate Kyren Williams owner.



Zack Moss


While I do think Moss will still have a small role when JT is playing at 100%, it shouldn’t be playable for fantasy. He is nothing more than a glorified handcuff at this point, and should be valued as such.



DJ Moore


This isn’t just about the fact that Justin Fields is hurt. The Bears’ offense looked right back to being the awful unit we’ve seen for about a full calendar year now before he went down vs. the Vikings. I just don’t want any piece of this mess.



Kyle Pitts


Hey! Kyle Pitts had a good game! Sell him before he gives you your next headache.




Holds:

James Cook


His usage has seen a slight dip as of late, but I still like Cook’s ROS outlook. Damien Harris was just injured, and it’s been clear that the Buffalo offense looks best with Cook out there. I’m holding onto him.



Dameon Pierce


You aren’t going to get close to return value for Pierce after being overtaken by Devin Singletary this week. Is this a permanent thing? It’s tough to say, but no reason to sell him for nothing when there is still some upside there.



Puka Nacua


Puka saw a season low 7 targets vs Arizona this week, but the Rams attempted a season low 24 passes too. I’m not concerned, Nacua is still a good fantasy WR2.



Ceedee Lamb


Lamb was not quite the focal point of the Cowboys’ offense against the Chargers – Michael Gallup had 10 targets – but he rewarded the Cowboys’ and fantasy owners with 7 for 117. He is going to get fed.



Mark Andrews


With the state of the modern day fantasy TE market. You can’t sell top end TE talent. Hold onto Andrews, who seems to be in a weekly 1A/1B type of deal with Zay Flowers. That is enough usage to be an elite fantasy TE this year.
