MOVES TO MAKE THIS WEEK
How to use our recommendations:
- BUY: Go get these players - we think they will be available at a value. Check out our trade value chart to help put together a trade!
- SELL: These players are being valued higher than we think they should. If you have them, consider cashing out for a better player before their value drops!
- ADD: These guys are available on waivers in at least 50% of leagues - but they're worth a spot on your bench!
- DROP: To make these adds and trades, you're going to have to clear roster space. These guys are rostered in more than half of leagues, but you can safely drop them for a good waiver option.
- STREAM: These are guys with good matchups for next week! They will primarily be QB/TE's that you can pick up to cover your bye week this week!
- LEAVE TO YOUR LEAGUEMATES: These are guys that we think are just flashes in the pan. Your league mates are going to get excited and bid on them...and you should let them! Stay away.
1. ADD Ken Walker (SEA RB)
- GO GET THIS GUY! We've loved the talent of Walker since his college days. The Seahawks love to center volume on a single RB. And Rashaad Penny is out for the year with a leg injury. At worse, Walker should be a flex starter with lots of volume on a bad offense. At best, Geno Smith stays hot and Walker becomes an RB1 for the rest of the season.
- Now is a great time to try to buy low on Godwin. He's fully healthy and getting lots of volume, but hasn't exploded for fantasy yet because he hasn't scored a TD. He's got top-10 WR upside the rest of the way and you might be able to swap him for a lower-ceiling WR2 right now.
- Another top talent who's had a few quiet weeks. Wilson looks electric with the ball in his hands, and is already earning targets just weeks into his pro career. Buy in while you can!
4. SELL Gabe Davis (BUF WR)
- We've always considered Davis a very startable flex player - but he's always going to be wholly TD-dependent. Case in point: he's had two weeks this season where he's been usable for fantasy, and both came via TDs. He's not going to earn enough targets to be an every week star, but you might be able to sell him high coming off a totally unsustainable week of 30 fantasy points on just 6 targets.
5. ADD Rachaad White (TB RB)
- Snap share up from about 17% to about 39% the past two weeks. Touches up from 4 per game to about 9 per game the past two weeks. You can't start White yet, but his role is growing. At worst, he's a high-end handcuff if Fournette gets hurt. But White also has growing upside in this offense.
6. LEAVE TO YOUR LEAGUEMATES: Taysom Hill (NO TE)
- Don't be fooled: the days of Taysom Hill being a QB in your TE spot are gone. He's a pure gadget player at this point, but fantasy-wise, he's really no different than any other TD-dependent TE streamer. If you need a spot start during bye weeks, he's a fine play. But don't rush to spend FAAB or waiver priority based on his multi-TD week.
7. ADD Khalil Shakir (BUF WR)
- With slot starter Isaiah McKenzie out, Shakir played 70% of Buffalo's snaps, earned 5 targets and delivered a TD catch. He's got a massive ceiling in an elite offense, and could become startable as a flex player as the bye weeks start to hit.
- You might not know it from his fantasy finishes, but Diontae has had double digit targets in 4 of 5 games so far this year. He's the Steelers' best offensive player (yep, better than Najee) and it's rare you can buy this kind of volume and talent this low.
9. STREAM Geno Smith (SEA QB)
- No one saw this coming, but Geno has been sensational for fantasy lately. He's probably not going to continue to be the QB6 in fantasy points per game. But with soft matchups in 3 of his next 4 games, he's easily streamable if you're desperate for a QB.
10. DROP Josh Palmer (LAC WR)
- Palmer was worth an add on upside earlier in the year. But if he's not producing now, there's no reason to think he'll produce better when Keenan Allen returns to the lineup and starts hogging targets. Palmer is droppable if you need the roster spot.
11. SELL Marquise Brown (ARI WR)
- Don't get us wrong: Hollywood Brown has been great to start the year and isn't a must-sell. But if you want to take a big swing, now is the time to sell high for a WR2 or RB2 with upside. In week 7, DeAndre Hopkins comes back to shake up the target distribution in Arizona.
12. ADD Jakobi Myers (NE WR)
- Myers is just a straight-up target hog. He's never going to be a league-winner who scores you 30 points in a week. But he's a consistent, reliable scorer who will probably benefit from playing with inexperienced backup QBs who need a safety valve. You can do plenty worse as a bye week fill-in.
13. ADD Alec Pierce (IND WR)
- The Colts rookie is really starting to rise as the team's #2 receivinig target. With 20 targets over the past three weeks, he's an ascending player who is becoming startable for fantasy - with the upside to become a very valuable asset later in the season.
14. DROP Chase Edmonds (MIA RB)
- Edmonds started the year well, but his volume has taken a nosedive in the last month. He had just one carry and two targets this week, and is clearly behind Raheem Mostert at this point. If you need the roster spot, you can feel OK dropping him.
15. ADD Eno Benjamin (ARI RB)
- Both James Conner and Darrel Williams left this week's game with injuries, leaving Benjamin to carry the load in the Cards backfield. We don't know if either of those guys will be back in week 6, but Benjamin is worth stashing just in case.
