New York Jets running back Frank Gore was the lead back for the Week 6 matchup against the Miami Dolphins. Gore rushed 11 times for 46 yards with four receptions on four targets with 24 yards in the passing game. This was Gore's best game of the season in terms of PPR fantasy value. However, there aren't many players on the Jets roster that hold fantasy value these days. Gore might be worth a look as a desperation option against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.
New York Jets quarterback Joe Flacco was straight up awful against the Miami Dolphins in Week 6. He completed 21 of 44 passing attempts for 186 passing yards with zero touchdowns and one interception in the loss. There was really no upside from Flacco here and he can be avoided versus the Buffalo Bills in Week 7. Quarterback Sam Darnold (shoulder) has missed each of the last two games, but hopefully he'll be healthy enough to play next week. The only people who will be happy about Flacco starting next week would be fantasy owners with the Bills Defense.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant Sr. was able to post his best game of the season during the Week 6 victory over the New York Jets. Grant finished with a season-high four receptions on four targets for 48 yards in the victory. He hasn't held much fantasy value throughout the season, but put together a decent game here. Sadly, Grant won't be trustworthy in fantasy leagues with the Dolphins offense fairly healthy. He might be a desperation option in deep leagues versus the Los Angeles Rams in Week 8.
Miami Dolphins tight end Adam Shaheen was able to find the end zone for the second straight week. He hauled in all three of his targets for 51 yards and one touchdown in the victory over the New York Jets. It was a nice performance by Shaheen who surprisingly put together a solid game. However, it'll be tough to trust him in fantasy leagues going forward since he's not a big part of the offense. He probably won't be on the fantasy radar against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 8 following the bye week.
Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki was carrying decent momentum into this game following a solid performance in Week 5. Sadly, he was unable to do anything during the victory over the New York Jets here. He failed to haul in either of his targets during the 24-0 victory. Meanwhile, both Adam Shaheen and Durham Smythe caught touchdowns in this one, while Gesicki did nothing. It's beginning to be difficult to trust Gesicki in fantasy leagues. He should be in the TE2 conversation against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 8.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams was coming off his best game of the season when he finished with 106 receiving yards in Week 5. Sadly, Williams was unable to carry that momentum into this game. He hauled in two of his three targets for 18 yards and a touchdown in the victory over the New York Jets. It was a fairly disappointing game for Williams, but he was able to salvage his fantasy value with the touchdown. He should be in the mix as a WR4 against the Los Angeles Rams following the bye week.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker was held in check during the Week 6 victory over the New York Jets. He hauled in three of his eight targets for 35 yards in the 24-0 win. It was a disappointing outing from Parker who was expected to have a big game here. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick did throw three touchdowns, but none of them were in the direction of Parker. Fantasy owners should consider Parker a WR3 when he goes up against Jalen Ramsey and the Los Angeles Rams in Week 8.
Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa made his NFL debut during the Week 6 victory over the New York Jets. Veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick started this game and threw three touchdowns during the 24-0 victory. However, the Dolphins decided to let Tagovailoa play during the fourth quarter when the game was clearly over. He completed both his passing attempts for nine yards. Fitzpatrick is expected to remain their starter for the Week 8 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams following their bye week. Fantasy owners will have to wait a little longer before Tagovailoa will be relevant in fantasy leagues.
Miami Dolphins running back Matt Breida continued his lackluster season versus the New York Jets in Week 6. Breida rushed the ball six time for 15 yards in the 24-0 victory. There is no reason to believe that Breida is going to turn it around at this point. Myles Gaskin has proven himself to be a reliable lead back for this team. Fantasy owners can go ahead and cut Breida in most formats going forward. He won't have much value against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 8.
Miami Dolphins running back Myles Gaskin set a new season high for himself in rushing yards during the Week 6 victory over the New York Jets. Gaskin finished with 91 yards on 18 rushing attempts with four receptions on four targets for 35 yards in the passing game. It was another solid game for Gaskin who continues to prove himself to be a reliable weapon in this offense. Gaskin has put himself as a weekly RB2 going forward, but will get a bye week before playing the Los Angeles Rams in Week 8.
Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was able to help lead his offense to their second straight win in Week 6. Fitzpatrick completed 18 of 27 passing attempts for 191 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in the victory over the New York Jets. He was great during the first half, but failed to get much going after halftime. Tua Tagovailoa made his NFL debut in the fourth quarter, but it was because the Dolphins were running away with the game. Fitzpatrick is expected to remain under center against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 8 following the bye.
New England Patriots wide receiver Damiere Byrd saw a season-high 10 targets during the Week 4 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He actually led the team in receiving yards that game, but sadly it wasn't enough to get the win. However, Byrd could fall in the depth chart with quarterback Cam Newton possibly returning for the Week 6 matchup against the Denver Broncos. It's unclear what Byrd's role is going to be, but he could hold some deep league value against the shaky Broncos secondary.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman has a total of five receptions over the last two games. It has been a struggle for Edelman to get any momentum going recently, but that will hopefully change in Week 6. The Pats believe veteran quarterback Cam Newton should be able to play against the Denver Broncos. That should give a boost to Edelman's value in this one. Denver has struggled to slow down the passing attack this season. They allowed Jamison Crowder to reach over 100 yards during their last game. Fantasy owners should be able to trust Edelman as a WR3 for Week 6.
New England Patriots running back Damien Harris is expected to be the lead back with Sony Michel (quad) sidelined for the foreseeable future. Harris saw 17 carries for 100 yards in the Week 4 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Pats still have Rex Burkhead and James White in the mix, but both of them see a majority of their workload through the air. Harris should be the primary back for the ground work, so he'll carry decent fantasy value for now. Fantasy owners should consider him a low-end RB2 against the Denver Broncos in Week 6.
New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead is expected to see his role decrease going forward. James White returned during the Week 4 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs after missing each of the two games prior to that. Burkhead saw a season-high 11 carries on the ground, but White returned to his role as the primary receiving back. That is most likely going to be the case going forward, so Burkhead might only be a low-end flex option right now in 14/16 team leagues.
New England Patriots running back James White returned from his two-game absence against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4. He finished with three rushing attempts for 21 yards and caught seven receptions through the air in the loss. The Pats continue to heavily involve White in the passing game and that should be the case against the Denver Broncos in Week 6. However, White doesn't get too many attempts on the ground, so he'll hold PPR flex value for this one.
New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon started off the season with a six reception performance in the opener. Since then, Herndon has seven total receptions over the last four games. It doesn't help that the Jets offense is horrendous and head coach Adam Gase appears to have no idea what he's doing. Herndon will have a tough matchup against the Miami Dolphins in Week 6. The same team that held superstar tight end George Kittle in check last week. Herndon is a low-end TE2 here and is only a desperation play in most formats.
New York Jets wide receiver Jeff Smith has seen 20 total targets over the last two games. However, he has only hauled in 10 of them for 104 yards, so there hasn't been much fantasy value coming from Smith. He's getting plenty of targets with the Jets banged up, but Breshad Perriman (ankle) and Denzel Mims (hamstring) returned to practice this week. Smith has been unable to capitalize on his chances and will likely see his workload decrease going forward. He can be avoided in standard leagues and is a risky option in deep leagues for the Week 6 matchup with the Miami Dolphins.
New York Jets wide receiver Braxton Berrios put together a few big games for this offense early in the season. However, Berrios has been a ghost over the last two games. He has zero receptions on five targets during his last two contests. The Jets are beginning to get healthy with Breshad Perriman (ankle) and Denzel Mims (hamstring) returning to practice this week. It appears the window has closed for Berrios to impress the team. He'll likely be buried on the depth chart and useless in the offense going forward. Fantasy owners can go ahead and ignore Berrios for the Week 6 matchup versus the Miami Dolphins.
New York Jets wide receiver Denzel Mims (hamstring) was cleared for practice on Wednesday. However, head coach Adam Gase has not decided whether or not Mims will suit up for the Week 6 matchup against the Miami Dolphins. Mims has not played this season and it seems unlikely that he'd be ready this quick. He might be worth a stash in deep leagues, but won't have much value outside of that in this horrendous Jets offense.
New York Jets wide receiver Breshad Perriman (ankle) was limited during practice throughout the week and is listed as questionable for the Week 6 matchup against the Miami Dolphins. Perriman has missed each of the last three games, but it appears he has a real chance of returning for this one. Sadly, the Jets offense is horrendous, so this won't mean much for fantasy leagues. His return could decrease the streaming appeal of Jeff Smith, but Perriman hasn't shown enough worth trusting him in standard leagues.
New York Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder has been basically the only bright spot for this team all season long. Crowder has finished with over 100 receiving yards in all three games he's played in this season. The Jets offense is awful, but Crowder continues to find a way to succeed. He hauled in eight receptions for 116 yards and one touchdown in the loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5. Fantasy owners can continue to lean on Crowder as a reliable WR2 versus the Miami Dolphins here.
New York Jets running back La'Mical Perine could get more involved in the backfield with Le'Veon Bell being released. Veteran running back Frank Gore is expected to be the lead back for their Week 6 matchup with the Miami Dolphins. However, Perine is likely going to serve as the backup behind Gore. Sadly, Perine has not done much damage this season and that's unlikely to change. The Jets offense is horrendous, so fantasy owners shouldn't bother taking a chance of Perine even with extra carries.
New York Jets running back Frank Gore is expected to be the lead back going forward. The release of Le'Veon Bell means Gore is most likely going to see more carries on offense. Sadly, the veteran running back won't see much of an increase in fantasy value. The Jets offensive line is horrendous, so there hasn't been much room to run for any of the backs. Gore might have some deep league value, but is avoidable in most formats going forward.
New York Jets quarterback Joe Flacco will get his second straight start in place of Sam Darnold (shoulder) who remains sidelined. The veteran quarterback was mediocre versus the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5. He completed 18 of 33 passing attempts for 195 passing yards and one touchdown in the loss. To be fair, it's not all Flacco's fault because the Jets just don't have any weapons besides Jamison Crowder on offense. The Miami Dolphins Defense is average against the passing attack, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect a much better performance from Flacco here.
Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox (calf) was unable to suit up for practice on Thursday. He hauled in one reception for 15 yards before exiting Tuesday's game against the Tennessee Titans due to injury. Knox hasn't been a big part of the offense even when he is healthy. Tyler Kroft would be a touchdown-dependent option for the Week 6 contest against the Kansas City Chiefs, assuming Knox sits out.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Gabriel Davis saw a season-high nine targets in the Week 5 loss to the Tennessee Titans. The Bills looked towards Davis often in this one with John Brown (knee) sidelined. He produced five receptions for 58 yards in this one. A decent game for the rookie, but he'll likely be less involved with Brown expected to return in Week 6. The Kansas City Chiefs don't have a great secondary, but Davis hasn't been largely involved when the Bills are healthy. He'll be a desperation flex option in deep leagues for Week 6.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley has been one of the most consistent weapons for this offense early in the season. Last week, Beasley hauled in all six of his targets for 53 yards in the loss to the Tennessee Titans. He continues to put up solid numbers each week and put himself in the flex conversation against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6. The Bills have Stefon Diggs and John Brown (knee) ahead of Beasley on the depth chart. However, he continues to find a way to produce every week. Fantasy owners in PPR leagues should be able to trust Beasley as a flex option against the Chiefs.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown (knee) was able to fully practice on Thursday. That means that Brown should be able to suit up for the Week 6 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night. He has unable to play last week, but it appears to be only a one-game absence for Brown. Gabriel Davis should see his workload decrease with Brown back on the field. This game is projected to be a shootout between two strong offenses. Fantasy owners should throw Brown into the WR3 conversation for Week 6.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs has looked fantastic through the first few weeks of the regular season. Diggs has finished with over 100 receiving yards in each of the last two games. Last week, Diggs saw a season-high 16 targets in the loss to the Tennessee Titans. He continues to be a focal point of this offense and that should be the case against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6. This game is expected to be a shootout between two strong offenses. Fantasy owners can lean on Diggs as a WR2 for this week.
