Kyler Murray, ARI

Murray is this year's Lamar Jackson and it's time to start treating him as such. He's on pace for 136 carries for 987 yards and 16 scores on the ground. Those numbers would be fifth, third, and first all-time for a quarterback. The yards and touchdowns are also on pace to lead all passers this year. Keep playing Murray until he's priced like Jackson was toward the end of 2019.

Teddy Bridgewater, CAR

The Carolina offense has been able to produce yardage in droves, they just haven't scored. They're 23rd in points but 11th in yards as an offense. Bridgewater is completing 70.9% of his passes while adding 20.2 yards per game on the ground. He faces a bottom-five defense in coverage grade per Pro Football Focus. Positive regression will come for Bridgewater and he's only $5,800 on DraftKings.

Running Back

Kareem Hunt, CLE

Hunt has two starts without Nick Chubb and he's operated as a three-down back. He has 33 carries and seven targets. As a receiver specifically, he's been the only Browns back getting work. D'Ernest Johnson has two targets in those two games. The Browns are also favored by a field goal versus the Bengals, who have allowed the sixth-most rushing yards this year. Hunt remains a bell-cow back until Chubb returns.

Mike Davis, CAR

In Week 6, Davis had his first poor performance since taking over for Christian McCaffrey. He Rushed for 52 yards and caught two passes for three yards. He saved the day with a touchdown but the lack of receiving usage ultimately rendered him a bust. The underlying numbers were still in favor of Davis performing well going forward. He saw a 10.3% target shared and carried the ball 15 times while only ceding two carries to Trenton Cannon. He remains a bell-cow back until CMC returns.

Wide Receiver

Robby Anderson, CAR

DraftKings and Fanduel are still underestimating Anderson's role in the Carolina offense. He's $6,000 on DraftKings and $6,400 on Fanduel. His 26.5% target share is ninth among receivers and his 36.6% air yards share is No. 11. The 51 total in Carolina/New Orleans should keep both teams playing with pace. That bodes well for Carolina's top receiver this week.

Keenan Allen, LAC

Allen isn't a lock to play this week because of back spasms he suffered in Week 5 but the injury sounded minor and he is more likely to play than not. He played in three full games with Justin Herbert. In those games, Allen saw 40 targets, 28 of which he brought down. He also posted 90 yards per game in those contests. He's only $6,200 on DraftKings this week.

Tight End

Logan Thomas, WAS

Paying down at tight end is ugly this week but Thomas has seen at least four targets in every game this year. Washington also gets one of the best matchups in the league for offensive production this week. Their opponent, Dallas, has allowed more points through six weeks than all but five teams in the history of the NFL.

Hunter Henry, LAC

Much like Allen, Henry is simply another Charger who isn't priced in line with the volume he's seeing. Henry is averaging seven targets, 4.4 receptions, and 53.6 yards per game. The Chargers face the horrid Jacksonville defense this week in a game with a 49-point total.





Cleveland Browns

The Browns are only $2,800 this week but get one of the best matchups for a defense, Cincinnati. Only the Eagles are allowing more sacks than the Bengals at four per game this year. The Browns are averaging 2.3 sacks per game, slightly above league-average. Their defensive line should have no trouble harassing Joe Burrow all say on Sunday.
