While David Johnson will continue to receive most of the reps for the Cardinals, fantasy owners may want to look at picking up Chase Edmonds this week for a buck. Edmonds has been red hot in the last two games. He had eight carries for 68 yards and a touchdown in week 5, and last week he recorded five carries for 34 yards and also recorded a 31-yard touchdown reception. Edmonds is averaging an impressive 6.7 yards per carry this season. Even if David Johnson is still getting the majority of the playing time, fantasy owners should pick up Edmonds as quickly as possible this week if they want him for a buck.
If Todd Gurley misses another game this upcoming week, Darrell Henderson Jr. should be someone that fantasy owners should look at picking up this week. In week 6's game against the 49ers, Henderson gave a spark to the offense with a few solid runs until he fumbled the football in the second half. He managed six carries for 39 yards. The Rams face the Falcons this week and will need the running game to open up the field for Jared Goff. Henderson could bring that spark again if Gurley misses more time. Pick up Henderson for a buck this week.
It seemed like Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers tried to find five other receivers until he finally found Allen Lazard in the fourth quarter for a long touchdown. Lazard ended up with four receptions for 65 yards and a score, all coming in the final quarter. Depending on Geronimo Allison's availability for week 7, Lazard would be a player worth picking up a buck. He seemed to be the only confident wide receiver left after coming in clutch for the Packers late against the Lions. Pick up and start Lazard if Allison misses week 7.
Patriots' rookie wide receiver Jakobi Meyers might be a wide receiver fantasy owner should target in dynasty and keeper leagues. Last week against the Giants, Meyers had four receptions for 54 yards. After Phillip Dorsett and Josh Gordan left the field with injuries, it was clear that Meyers was really the only deep ball threat left on the roster. Depending on the health of Gordan and Dorsett, Meyers might be someone worth starting in week 7. The patriots face the Jets this Monday, who have a middle of the road pass defense. Just to note, fellow N'Keal Harry returned to practice this week. Meyers should get more playing time in the weeks to come, but don't be surprised if Harry starts to get more playing time. As for this week, pick up and start Meyers if you have a wide receiver on a bye week.
Former heisman winner Marcus Mariota struggled last week against the Broncos, and former Dolphins' quarterback Ryan Tannenhill replaced him in the third quarter. Besides a pick and four sacks, Tannenhill played reasonably well completing 13 passes for 144 yards. It hasn't been announced who will be the starter in week 7, but Tannenhill might be someone worth picking up this week for a buck. If he does play, the Titans face the Chargers spotty defense. Check in later in the week to see if Tannenhill gets the nod, but you need to pick him up for a buck today to ensure he'll be on your roster.
While Texans' Darren Fells might not be a guy worth keeping on your bench for the rest of the season, he may be worth picking up and starting if you need a tight end in week 7. The Texans face the Colts this weekend, whose defense has given up the third most fantasy points to tight ends this season. In the last two weeks, Fells has back to back productive games. He managed to score two touchdowns in week 5 against the Falcons and recorded six receptions for 69 yards last week against the Chiefs. Fells might be worth a buck this week. Pick him up today.
