Week 6 was the first batch of byes, meaning fantasy owners had to make some adjustments to lineups. Due to this some risks were taken, and with that comes some lessons that were learned. Here are some of the lessons our experts picked from Week 6.
Kenyan Drake has seen a bigger role than expected
JK Dobbins bombed this week, and taking his place was Kenyan Drake. Drake took 10 attempts for 119 yards for 1 TD, and received 8 targets as well. Drake controlled the snap share leaving little for Dobbins to work with. This is a red flag for Dobbins owners, and it may be too late to sell Dobbins.
Rhamondre Stevenson is a RB1 with Damien Harris out
Stevenson soared to the top of RB fantasy scorers after 19 carries for 76 yards and 2 touchdowns against the Browns. Stevenson also saw a solid 5 targets and hauled in 4 receptions. As long as Damien Harris is out, Stevenson is a must start.
Wan'Dale Robinson should be a waiver target
Trusting Giants WRs is risky business, but with Kenny Golliday and Kadarious Toney both remaining off the field, Robinson has found a solid role for himself. His snap percentage left more to be desired for, but he is a young receiver that led the team in targets in his second career game. The biggest appeal of Robinson is his great matchups upcoming agains Jacksonville, Seattle, Houston, and Detroit.
It could be a good week to sell JuJu after his big week
JuJu had his breakout game that everyone has been waiting for. Schuster took his 5 receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown, but in a Chiefs offense that spread the balls around, it will be hard to trust him weekly. Travis Kelce is the clear favorite target on a weekly basis, and JuJu will compete with Hardman and MVS for the remaining targets. JuJu's touchdown was just as much product of poor tackling as JuJu's breakaway ability. JuJu's value is at its high, might be time to sell him.
Allen Lazard has been the most consistent Packers receiver
The Packers offense took a brutal loss to the Jets this week. The RBs have been fantasy disappointments, and Romeo Doubs has shown flashes. Lazard on the other hand has been a low-end WR1 and high end WR2 values since returning to the lineup. Lazard is the most trustworthy fantasy asset on the Packers offense, and should have a high floor most weeks.
