Studs: Drew Brees, Lesean McCoy, Odell Beckham Jr., Rob GronkowskiDrew Brees: Ol Reliable, aka Drew Brees, continues to live up to his high expectations with a huge 32 points this week against the Panthers. Looking at his upcoming schedule, there is no reason to believe that Brees’ production will slow down anytime soon.
LeSean McCoy: LeSean McCoy continues to thrive in the absence of’ star receiver Sammy Watkins with an astounding 32 points against the 49ers. With his week 7 matchup being the Miami Dolphins generous defense, look for LeSean to have another huge week.Odell Beckham Jr. is back in business. After scaring many fantasy owners with his 8 points per game average through the first five weeks, Odell has redeemed himself with a monster 32 points in week 6 against a solid Ravens defense. Looking ahead, the Giants schedule doesn’t include any more intimidating defenses, leaving fantasy owners to expect consistent production from Odell in the coming weeks.
Rob Gronkowski: Robby G put up 22 points against the hard-hitting Cincinnati Bengals defense. With his best friend (Tom Brady) back in action, there is no doubt that Gronk will continue to put up crazy numbers at the TE position.
Honorable mentions: David Johnson, Kenny Britt, Terrance West, Lamar Miller, Brandin Cooks
Duds: Russell Wilson, CJ Anderson, Antonio BrownRussell Wilson: A mere 10 points against a horrible Atlanta Falcons passing defense and without a touchdown is pretty bad, especially for a quarterback who’s considered elite. With a tough schedule still to come, I don’t see Russell meeting fantasy owners’ high expectations for the rest of the season. CJ Anderson: Against one of the worst run defenses in the league, CJ Anderson put up a disappointing 6 points. Although a touchdown was called back due to a holding penalty, Anderson’s touches continue to be taken away by rookie, Devontae Booker.
Antonio Brown: As the #1 pick in the majority of leagues this year, 3 points against the Miami Dolphins secondary is underwhelming. Not to mention, with Big Ben out for quite some time after now, AB’s value will drop with Landry Jones throwing the ball.
Waiver wire wonders: Jay Ajayi, Cole Beasley, Anquan Boldin
Jay Ajayi: With Arian Foster injured as always, Jay Ajayi seized his opportunity to shine. With Foster’s history of injuries, I believe that Ajayi will claim the starting job and contribute to a struggling Dolphin’s offense.
Cole Beasley: At only 5 foot 8 inches, Cole Beasley has become Dak Prescott’s favorite target. With Dez out week 7, look for Beasley to put up big numbers again.
Anquan Boldin: For all you Marvin Jones and Golden Tate owners, this man has been the go to guy in the red zone. Anquan Boldin’s red zone consistency is one of the best in the game which is why I urge you to pick him up if you’re lacking WR depth.
