Players must line up to fight the byes

Week 5 was not a big dream week for usunless you are an easy proofreader and give us credit for Devin Duvernay. But we always try to find underrated values ​​for you and exploitable games.

Sleeper, of course, is a nebulous term. Use whatever definition works for you. Likewise, this column is whatever you want it to be. Maybe it helps you make a go-out call this week or make a DFS decision. Perhaps you apply the information to a top/bottom accessory. Maybe you’ll add a player to your fantasy bench as depth, but not deploy him this week.

We are entering week 6:

When you think of the Seahawks, you think of a run defense that couldn’t stop a nosebleed. But Seattle’s pass defense metrics are actually worse. Pete Carroll’s crew is currently 31st in DVOA in pass defense.

It’s time to go for Moore, who is trying to carve out an important role in the Cardinals offense before the return of DeAndre Hopkins. Moore hasn’t been a downfield flash in his brief NFL career, but he landed 7 of 8 targets last week and he’s still available to add about two-thirds of Yahoo Leagues. He’s too good not to be on a roster, and now that the bye weeks have arrived, he’s a possible starter in Week 6.

There’s a core four in Cleveland and DPJ doesn’t make that list — the Browns offense is around Nick Chubb, hunt kareem, amari cooperand David Njoku. But the passing game has been a three-tree, with Peoples-Jones seeing 16 looks over the past two weeks and posting a reasonable 9-121-0 line. New England’s stingy secondary is sure to prioritize Cooper, which again makes it possible to imagine Peoples-Jones in the 6-8 target range. Its recent production level is a good starting point for your Week 6 expectations, with around a 20-25% chance of a touchdown. This would never fly in week 1, but could be useful in a week 6 skeleton crew situation.

I elevated Singletary status to Circle of Trust last week which turned out to be a mistake as the Bills trampled on the Steelers but asked little of their nominal characteristic in return. But Singletary’s most hit games tend to come up against opponents who can actually fend off the Bills, meaning he should be back in the 14-16 touch bucket for Week 6. His PPR rating of half an industry point is outside the Top 20, which I think is about half a level too low. If you don’t start Singletary this week, you’re lucky to have a busy running room – we all envy you. I give him another chance.

RB Travis Etienne in Indianapolis

Etienne isn’t the type of sleeper you can add waivers to, but there might be a chance to capitalize on a DFS trade or opportunity. I’m not sure the market has properly recalibrated this offense.

James Robinson received a lot of buzz for his quick start, but he was partially built on long runs that were mostly giveaways from defenses in poor coverage. Robinson is not a home hitter, and expecting him to maintain a long-term profile has always been a mistake. Etienne knocked out Robinson two weeks ago, and last week he edged Robinson by a big market (114 total yards to 39 total yards). The fantasy industry always ranks Robinson above Etienne, which seems like a glaring mistake to me. Etienne should continue to plead for the head of this backfield on Sunday.

RB Josh Kelley vs. Broncos (desperation start or future stash)

We know the Chargers don’t want to overexpose Austin Ekeler, and the search has always been for a reliable understudy. Kelley showed in Week 6 that he could be back – 10-49-1 on the ground, 2-33-0 in the air. And this production didn’t come at a bad time – the Chargers and Browns were in a three-hour donnybrook. Kelley is listed in just 13% of Yahoo leagues, which is comically low for one of the best lottery tickets on the board. Go check your waiver thread now.
