2019 NFL Week 6 Stock Up Stock Down

on

Welcome back to the 2019 NFL Week 6 Stock Up Stock Down. Fantasy Points seemed to come in bunches this week.

Will Fuller put up stats in week 5 (14-217-3) that were better than his entire season had been so far (14-183-0).

Michael Thomas (11-182-2) may have single-handedly earned Teddy Bridgewater a massive contract this offseason.

Aaron Jones and CMC combined for 419 scrimmages yards and seven TDs. Their quarterbacks threw for a combined 419 yards and one touchdown, which was caught by McCaffery.

Dalvin Cook may have had the least talked about 200-yard game I’ve ever seen.

Sony Michel broke a tackle, and Chris Carson didn’t fumble.

And how about those Colts! Getting it done with a good run game and strong defensive showing.

Gerald Everett, TE, Los Angeles Rams

Everett and Tyler Higbee have for the most part limited each other’s upside. However, that may have changed with a dominant performance against the Seahawks.

So far in their relatively short careers, Everett has a higher average yards per catch, a higher catch rate, and more touchdowns in one fewer year.

Now that’s not to say Everett will no longer share the work with Higbee. But with Brandin Cooks in concussion protocol and his big-game setting the stage for more work, if Everett is available he might be worth picking up.

Josh Jacobs, RB, Oakland Raiders

WOW!!

A horrific matchup against the Bears and Josh Jacobs got it done in a big way. He carried the ball for a stat line of 26-123-2 and carried his team to a 3-2 record

He’s now sitting at the RB13 spot on the year and just earned a lot of newfound confidence from Fantasy players.

While he is still likely to be a victim of changing game scripts, Jacobs just showed us that his draft capital was well spent. And now the Raiders are sitting in 2nd place in the AFC West in a wide-open competition for the wild card spots.

  • Will Fuller WR Houston Texans – You don’t need to hear it again. The First 50 point day since Julio Jones did it in 2017 has catapulted Fuller to the WR7 and far above the output of DeAndre Hopkins so far. Regression will come (obviously), but without Kenny Stills in the lineup, Fuller is a must start again.
  • Devonta Freeman RB Atlanta Falcons – Back to back 18 point games is the bounce back we hoped for after a rough start. The offense as a whole seems to be a bit off this season, but Freeman is starting to produce at a decent level again.
  • Demaryius Thomas WR NY Jets – He didn’t have a great day this week, but nobody has a great day with Luke Faulk leading the way. Thomas flashed enough potential to be a quality option whenever Sam Darnold manages to get back on the field.

Reggie Bonnafon RB, Carolina Panthers

He’ll never touch the ball while McCaffrey is healthy, but he seems to be the primary backup so far. And with a 5-80-1 stat line, he seems to be more than qualified.

While you never want anybody to get hurt, particularly a borderline MVP running back, more volume means more risk. And CMC’s record-setting pace this season carries a lot of risk.

Bonnafon could see a major uptick in value should McCaffrey get hurt. He’ll either put up big numbers as a must-start handcuff or make for excellent trade bait should you have the chance to get him now.

  • Chase Edmonds RB Arizona Cardinals – Same concept here as Bonnafon. Edmonds is one injury away from an every-down role and David Johnson apparently tweaked his back this week. It’s worth a price check to see if the Edmonds owner is willing to part ways for a decent price.
  • Darius Slayton WR New York Giants – Danny Dimes can hit the deep ball, as he did with Slayton this week. Slayton’s cost might have gone up a bit after a big game but he is worth a look. His playoff schedule includes the Eagles, Dolphins, and Redskins. Need I say more?

Wide Receivers on the Kansas City Chiefs (not Tyreek Hill)

This receiving core will run through Tyreek Hill when he’s back. But until then there are just too many guys who really aren’t distinguishing themselves from the competition. Now Byron Pringle had a big game and will likely be a popular waiver wire target.

With the inconsistency week to week, and a now banged up Patrick Mahomes leading the offense, the Chiefs receivers seem to be trending down as a whole.

Stefon Diggs, WR, Minnesota Vikings

Diggs has expressed his frustrations with this team and the offense in general. Despite a big day from Kirk Cousins, Diggs seems to once again be left behind.

He’s still worth owning on the hopes that he gets traded to a team that will properly use him, but his value seems to cemented as the distant number two behind Adam Thielen.
