Need a narrow fantasy loss, a one-way route or a break from accumulating injuries on a weekly basis? This is the place for you!
Here are 20 interesting things from the fantasy football world entering its 7th week:
1. We now have six games to confirm the overall selection Joe Burrow, Have an up-and-down rookie season in Cincinnati. How he measures up from a passing perspective with a total of seven quarterbacks through their first six NFL starts since 2010:
Two observations: the bureau was polite compared to the No. 1 picks of the last decade at Cube, with the second highest full rate and lowest interruptions; And none of these guys came close to giving back a consistent QB1 value for most of their rookie seasons.
2. So it’s a lot of running Daniel Jones The New York Giants were at a loss to Philadelphia on Thursday night – long (80 yards, to be exact) and he faltered and had nothing but the front end zone in front of him. For perspective, QB runs over the last 25 years are here:
1. Terrell Prior, Oakland (93 yards, 2013)
2. Colin Kipernick, San Francisco (90 yards, 2014)
3. Marcus Mariota, Tennessee (87 yards, 2015)
T 4. Cordell Stewart, Pittsburgh (80 yards, 1996)
T 4. Daniel Jones, NY Giants (80 yards, 2020)
It’s a great reminder that while Jones struggles a lot as a passer, his running ability remains one of the player’s least recognizable skills in fantasy football – and raises his floor over other options in his weekly range.
3. On the subject of great running quarterbacks, Kyler Murray added to his impressive 2020 fantasy football rematch, throwing in a pair of touchdowns, 74 runs in the 38th week and a 38-10 win over Dallas in Arizona. For Murray 370 running yards, Seventh in any QB through his first six games in a season. Murray’s six TDs were third by quarterback in that period.
4. On the flip side, a lot has been done about it Philip Rivers‘Running Touchdown Drought, which returns to the 2011 season. But Rivers does not miss the end zone – he’s not really a fan of crossing the Screammaze. Here are the active QB leaders at zero-yard running shows:
In an era where running yards from quarterbacks are such a great point source, it’s no surprise that none of the five guys mentioned above are regularly ranked in the top five fantasy options at once a week.
5. Michael Florio of NFL.com Fantasy has this great note that highlights its consistency Gardner Minshu:
Gardner Minshue ends every week between QB11-13, but that infamous Thursday night clunker
– Michael F. Florio (ic Michael Efflorio) October 22, 2020
True, you’d love to see a little more of that range – but if you’re looking for a back-end QB streamer that will be available for several weeks, you can do worse than Minshu, which combines strong running totals. With the ability to occasionally go through the air. He is basically Ryan Fitzpatrick With an initial job.
|NAME||BT||BT%||POS%||YAC||YAC / A.||YAC%|
**BT: Broken Tackles; BT%: Broken tackle rate; POS%: positive run rate; YAC: yards after introduction; YAC / A: yards after contact for each attempt; YAC%: Percentage of total yards acquired after contact
Cook shares the NFL lead in the broken tackles despite missing last week’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, but his positive run rate is the highest among those who have qualified. Although he did not participate in the passing game as fantasy managers preferred, he was a candidate for the entire RB1 when he was healthy.
7. Flip side: Baltimore Ravens running backwards Mark Ingram, Who not only got caught up in the hellish backfield rotation, but performed less than when pressed into action. Ingram broke Exactly one solution in his 50 rush attempts, When acquiring just 1.5 yards after introduction (34.2 per cent of his total yard). Ingram fantasy seems to be blurred in absurdity, which at least increases the value of other Ravens RBs.
8. So Jordan Howard Reported to be on the trade block – this is a minor insult, as he is currently in a hurry to join a particular NFL club (and it could be damaged if he closes elsewhere). With 14 yards and three running scores in 18 carries, Howard One of the two players averaging 3+ running TDs and less than 1.0 yards in the Super Bowl era, Joined Reggie Evans (16 ATT, 11 YDS, 4 TDs) in history.
9. He did not change the rate his managers wanted, but Houston RB David Johnson The Red Zone has plenty of work to do as the offense committed by the Texans comes to life after a slow start to the season. Johnson is The last two weeks have carried more within the 5-yard line (seven); His 11 attempts under 20 during that period represented 84.6 percent of Texans red-zone efforts. Johnson should see some positive TD regression.
10. Jacob Gibbs is back and there is bad news for him Josh Jacobs Managers:
Defensive game log for Buccaneers is definitely insane. Owners of GL Josh Jacobs.
Week 1 – Camara takes 12 to 16 yards
Week 2 – 59 to CMC18
Week 3 – Melv Gordon 8 for 26
Week 4 – Kelly / Jackson 16 for 15
Week 5 – Monty 10 to 29
Week 6 – Aaron Jones 15 to 10
– Jacob Gibbs (@Jagibbs_23) October 22, 2020
In fact, as Jacob pointed out in his next tweet, the Raiders’ entire danger line could not be practiced due to COVID-19 concerns, and if this game is played, Jacobs could take part in a tough ride. If you have him you are playing him, but keep your expectations as low as possible.
11. Joe MixonAbsence from the Cincinnati Week 7 showdown with the Cleveland Browns Young Bernard Squared on the radar of streaming and everyday fantasy – and he could be a sneaky play in full-season and DFS formats. Bernard a He has an average of 4.65 YPC vs. The Browns in 85 careers Adds 30 receptions for 280 yards on 38 targets. He won’t win you over for the week, but Bernard RB2 should be in conversation.
12. It may not seem like a slow start to the 2020 season, but Keenan Allen His fantasy of the previous two seasons has been consistent with production – especially when it comes to PPR scoring:
|Year||STD PPG||1/2 ppr ppg||PPR PPG|
The broad receiver position has something to say for consistency – and managers are getting what they have bargained with Allen so far. He may not have had the sky-high ceiling in past seasons, but as a No. 1 pick in offense led by a rookie sensation Justin Herbert, He will have his share in the productive weeks ahead.
13. There is more reason to be optimistic with Allen: he is one of only two players to be league-wide His team has a 30+ percent share of the total air yards and 30+ percent of his team goals (Arizona Cardinals Standout Diandre Hopkins Another). And the numbers are even higher with the Herbert Under Center (34.4 AY%, 37.1 TGT%), which points well to Allen’s remaining season prognosis. If he’s on the block, do business for him.
14. Damier Byrd There has been some popular amnesty wire addition in recent weeks, but managers should be disappointed with the lack of high-leverage opportunities. There is a dubious difference that Byrd has More receptions (17) and goals (26) for any player without a single catch in the Red Zone. And with so many runs being scored when the Patriots are close to the end zone, Byrd is a virtual afterthought.
15. Another reason to target Seattle Secondary in fantasy is Ian Hartitz:
The Seahawks have allowed 167 extra yards into the WR position this season than any other defense.
– Ian Hartitz (har Ihartitz) October 21, 2020
Next up for the sad Seahawks pass defense: Complete defeat of the Dallas Cowboys with a team of Cardinals. Kyler Murray may not have aired it on Big D, but he will be happy to make it this week – and he and Hopkins should be the most popular daily fantasy stock on the slates that have a Sunday night game.
16. Oh, how the geniuses fell. Lock-in once considered WR2 in fantasy circles (often WR1 upside down), Detroit Lions veteran Marvin Jones Jr.. After seeing it, the fantasy became a non-factor Only 10 total goals in his previous three games. Jones has targeted only six times in 2020 Kenny Gollade No. 1 and without a doubt TJ Hackenson Jones emerging in Year 2 is unlikely to regain value. ‘
17. With all the tight ends that bears have brought to the off-season, you should know that one of them will come up and become a sleeper option (well, maybe you don’t need to know, but it certainly makes sense). But most of us have no idea Jimmy Graham Ready Share the league lead in Red-Zone goals through Week 6 (10). He’s clearly a big part of the Red-Zone game plan, and that only makes him TE1-worthy.
18. Flip side: Jets tight end Chris Herndon, Trumpeted as a witty last dart throw in some circles. Not only did he hit the bull’s eye, he completely lost the board. Since seeing seven goals in Week 1, Herndon Thrown just 15 times in the last five games with a red-zone goal in 2020 (And 63 percent played snaps but had zero goals last time). He is not a fan of fantasy.
19. This is one reason why you should trust Chiefs Superstar Travis Kelsey Boundary as a strong end to increase WR1 statistics for the year (TE rankings in parentheses):
|2018||26.2 (1)||26.5 (1)||590 (2)|
|2019||25.8 (2)||24.3 (1)||464 (2)|
|2020||24.4 (2)||24.2 (2)||218 (1)|
This is a grank-in-his-prime-level consistency that you will not find in any other tight end in the league – not even George Kittle, Has sought to block 26.7 per cent of its snaps in the last two weeks, with just eight targets during that period.
20. Let’s wrap things up with an interesting factoid from Heath Cummings:
Ben Ruthlisberger ఉన్నప్పుడు When Targeted
Claypool 70.8% CMP 13.9 Y / A 16.7% TD
Washington 65.4% CMP 7.1 Y / A 7.7% TD
Juju 82.1% CMP 6.9 Y / A 10.7% TD
Ebron 66.7% CMP 6.9 Y / A 4.2% TD
Johnson 57.7% CMP 5.7 Y / A 3.8% TD
All have 24-28 goals

Another reason Claypool loves to move forward – and that means his emergence is less work Dionte Johnson, Even when Johnson is back to full health.
