The Loop Fantasy Football Report Week 6: First bye week isn’t a killer

The Curse of NFL Fantasy Fans Begins This Week, Farewell Week Season. And you better be ready.

The week 6 quartet of goodbye teams, Falcons, Saints, 49ers and Jets is not too much of a loss. RB from New Orleans Alvin Camara is the only pioneer to be inactive this week, although the absences of Cordarrell Patterson, Calvin Ridley and Dibo Samuel are significant.

Next week, in Bye Mageddon, things will get much worse when more than a dozen outstanding fantasy performers drop out of the game. In addition to the Vikings from your hometown, the seventh week will be watching from home, Cabo or some other distant corner, Bills, Cowboys, Chargers, Steelers and Jaguars.

So now is the time to prepare for the goodbye potholes in your lineup. Better a week earlier than a week later. Here are your best free agent options this week

Devontai Booker (Giants RB) – Last week New York lost Saqwon Barkley again to a sprained ankle, so Booker will be # 1 in blue again for at least a couple of weeks. He ran one touchdown and added a TD catch after replacing Barkley against Dallas. His biggest challenge: This week’s opponent: The Rams’ powerful defense.

Darrell Williams (Chiefs RB) Clyde Edwards-Heler’s knee sprain lifts Williams to a starter role in Kansas City. He has two players on the bench this year and only 26 transfers, and he has a very flexible defense this week in Washington. Williams’ score this Sunday is one of the safest bets of the week.

Samazhe Perin (Bengals RB) – As Joe Mixon slowed down due to injury, Perin entered the game against Green Bay last week with 15 touches for 83 yards and a TD. Former Oklahoma Suner has another good opportunity this week against losing Lions in Detroit, on condition that he drops off the COVID list.

Cadarius Tony (Giants WR) – On Sunday, the Florida rookie made his way out for the injured giants. Ten catches and 189 yards later, the first-round pick stands firmly at the top of New York’s peck. But then again, the Giants’ match against Aaron Donald and company this week is not a picnic.

Jacobi Meyers (Patriots WR) New England’s top receiver is still looking for his first result of the season, but he quietly moved up to seventh in the league with 31 receptions. He is clearly the Puts QB McJones’ favorite pick, so Meyers may see a lot of work on Sunday in what is likely to be an offensive shootout with the Cowboys at Foxboro.

David Njoku (Browns TE) Those waiting for Cleveland’s tight end to bloom should have been encouraged by his 149-yard effort last week against the Chargers. As the Browns cope with Jarvis Landry’s injury and Odell Beckham Jr.’s ineffectiveness, it is clear that QB Baker Mayfield will rely more on Njoku in the next few weeks.

Taylor Heinecke (Washington, Quebec) Old Dominion’s lone NFL QB has shown decent numbers since Ryan Fitzpatrick suffered a thigh injury. Over 1200 yards of passes and eight touchdowns in four-plus games. The WFT has the pleasure of facing mediocre Kansas City defenses this week. Look for another shootout.

Sitting stars
The Tampa Bay defense has stopped many better running backs than Philadelphia. Miles Sanderswho they’ll strangle on Thursday night. … Travis Henry will continue their MVP campaign, but you probably won’t want to start any other Titans vs. Buffalo. … We assume that Green Bay will rely on passing play against Chicago, so Aaron Jones won’t break the bank. … Speaking of broken, Cleveland WR Odell Beckham Jr. will continue to play this way against the invincible Arizona. … And two mid-tier quarterbacks will fight to reach that tier this week: Vikings. Kirk Cousins against Carolina and Las Vegas’ Derek Carr against Denver.

MATCHUP GAME
Miami RB Miles Gaskin there was some recovery last week and will continue in London against the Jaguars. … Pittsburgh, RB Naji Harris will be the last to break through the Seattle defenses. … Washington Antonio Gibson will do enough to keep them in the game against Kansas City. … New England Defender Mac Jones help the Patriots match the Cowboys’ score, at least temporarily. … Indy QB Carson Wentz will recover from a crushing defeat in Baltimore on an easy day against Houston. … The three recipients who should have big days this week are Tampa Bay. Antonio Brown v Philadelphia, Cincinnati Ja’Marr Chase against Detroit and Jacksonville Marvin Jones against Miami.

SEE INJURIES
The Seattle quarterback was hit hard last week. Russell Wilson middle finger. He will be absent for at least six weeks, but during none of these weeks, you should not think about replacing him with Jeno Smith… … There may be better news for Caroline. Christian McCaffrey, as the Panthers can bring back the NFL number 1 in time to fight the Vikings who can get Dalvin Cook back from ankle injury. … Pittsburgh (WR) Juju Smith-Schuster done for the season by doing Dionta Johnson and Chase Claypool more valuable. … This week we see the return of Tennessee WR Julio Jones or Tampa Bay TE Rob Gronkowski? Maybe Jones, but not Gronk. … Kansas City Tyreek hill and Travis Kelsey were injured last Sunday night, but you should expect both to return for the struggling leaders. … Notable personalities listed as questionable include Tampa QB Tom Brady, Giants QB Daniel Jones, Cincinnati Defender Joe Burrow, Patriots of RB Damien Harris, Giants WR Kenny Golladay and Philly TE Dallas Gedarth

THE DEEPEST DREAMS
Defeat “Vikings” last Sunday left the coach of Detroit Dan Campbell in tears, but not all is lost for lose-lose Lions. They may have discovered a new host star in Amon-Ra St. Brown… He became a favorite of the defenders Jared Goff… The Southern California rookie has counted 13 hauls at 135 yards in the past two weeks. The Lions host Cincinnati on Sunday, and St Brown may do well again against the Bengals’ average at best.
