Providing Fantasy Advice, Articles, and Up to Date News!
Week 5 is over and it was a relatively injury free week for owners. After week after week of “Must Adds” Week 6 brings us a crew on waivers that could best be described as “meh ok”. But now we continue to see our key players on bye and have to start making some key pick-ups and some hopefully not so costly drops. These are the weeks that make and break teams down, there is always that owner in your league that drops someone you all text about. Time to capitalize for savvy owners.
Now onto “From Wire to Hire”:
QB Marcus Mariota, TEN (32% Ownership) – Marcus Mariota has had three of five weeks with 20 plus points. Mariota will not be the leading the league in passing yards but Mariota is an efficient quarterback and can run for yards when called upon. The next four games for Mariota are Cleveland, Indianapolis, Jacksonville all at home and finishing up away in San Diego. Those are four really “sexy” matchups for potential owners. Cleveland has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks in 2016, so feel free to pick up Mariota for Week 6.
RB Bobby Rainey, NYG – (4% Ownership) A real option in PPR leagues Bobby Rainey has filled nicely into the Shane Vereen role for the New York Giants. In the last two games Rainey has pulled in 13 receptions for 95 yards. Potential owners have to like the targets Rainey is seeing as Eli Manning loves to check down to his running backs. Next up for Bobby Rainey is a home game with the Baltimore Ravens.
WR Jeremy Kerley, SF – (8% Ownership) Wow Jeremy Kerley that’s all I can say ….. Ok maybe a little more, over the last two weeks Kerley has 14 receptions for 190 yards with two touchdowns. Those two weeks show us that Kerley may be the only option to play in the 49ers receiving corp but what will the change at quarterback bring to Kerley and the 49ers. Colin Kapernick looks to be starting Week 6 so right now it may be a stash Kerley on your bench moment for owners.
WR Kenny Britt, LA – (9% Ownership) Consistency …. That word has never really been attached to Kenny Britt more like potential. But this year Kenny Britt is showing that even with a poor quarterback he can put together some really consistent stats. Britt has at least 4 receptions in every game this year and has gone over 75 yards in 3-of-5 games. Britt has yet to score a touchdown so owners need to temper their expectations.
TE Dwayne Allen, IND – (44% Ownership) Welcome back to relevancy Dwayne Allen! Guess who dropped Dwayne Allen and could have used his Week 5 production last week? This guy! Dwayne Allen has all the potential in the Colts offense with Andrew Luck at the helm. The only thing that holds back Allen’s production is the Colts poor offensive line play. The more Luck has time to establish his passing attack on a game by game basis, Allen should find his production value go up!
