Fantasy Football: Rising and Falling for Week 6



Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs: After the loss to the Colts, and a mediocre performance, Mahomes has lit up the field again, throwing for seven touchdowns and just one pick over the last two games.

Josh Allen, Bills: How does a guy who started so high get any higher? Allen is doing it, having his most productive game of the season Sunday. He threw for 424 yards and four TDs while rushing for 42 yards.

Geno Smith, Seahawks: He's accounted for eight touchdowns with just one interception over his last three games, and it doesn't look like he'll slow down.

Running backs

Rhamondre Stevenson, Patriots: He's gained at least 89 yards from scrimmage in each of the last three games. With Damien Harris ailing, Stevenson could add to the 161-yard rushing performance in Week 5.

Austin Ekeler, Chargers: Ekeler once again gained more than 100 yards from scrimmage as he's starting to look like the player managers expected. He rushed for 173 yards and scored twice against the Browns.

Breece Hall, Jets: He's getting better every week and had his first 20-touch game, gaining 197 total yards against the Dolphins. Start treating him like a high-end RB2, low-end RB1.

Wide receivers

Gabe Davis, Bills: After two dud weeks, he exploded for 171 yards and two scores, including a 98-yarder. He's the kind of player you may start to fear benching in case he goes off like this again. I'd start him again against the Chiefs in Week 6.

Justin Jefferson, Vikings: Two straight games with over 10 catches and more than 140 yards receiving has managers excited again after he turned in two duds in Weeks 2 and 3.

Tyler Lockett, Seahawks: The offense, behind Smith's signal-calling, is starting to look consistently good. Lockett caught five passes for 104 yards and a touchdown in Week 5. He's caught at least five passes in every game since Week 2.



Cooper Rush, Cowboys: He's been a great real-life steward of the offense, but only one of his games could be considered useful for fantasy. His most recent game was a real fantasy stinker (102 yards, no TDs). Dak Prescott could be back for Week 6 against the Eagles.

Jared Goff, Lions: The wild shifts in productivity continue for Goff. After throwing for 378 yards and four touchdowns in Week 4, he followed it up with a 229-yard, zero-TD performance in which he also threw an interception. He has to face the Cowboys after the bye.

Russell Wilson, Broncos: Have the wheels fallen off the wagon? Denver doesn't look good and Wilson's play is a big part of that. He threw two picks and no touchdowns in the loss to the Colts.

Running backs

A.J. Dillon, Packers: After a solid first week, he hasn't produced a quality fantasy game despite having double-digit carries in all but Week 5. He's definitely trending in the wrong direction.

James Robinson, Jaguars: Despite being fantastic in the first three weeks, Robinson has disappointed in two straight games. He rushed for less than 30 yards for the second game in a row and didn't score in Week 5.

Khalil Herbert, Bears: He was a great waiver wire addition, but with David Montgomery back there's not a lot of opportunity for Herbert. He had just four carries for 11 yards Sunday.

Wide receivers

Christian Kirk, Jaguars: The wideout supplied us with some fool's gold early on, and now he's coming off two disappointing weeks in which he's amassed just 71 yards, including just 11 in Week 5.

Garrett Wilson, Jets: The rookie has managers a little nervous after a Week 2 breakout made you think he'd be productive every week. Instead he has just five catches for 68 yards over the last two weeks.

Jaylen Waddle, Dolphins: With Tua Tagovailoa out, Waddle has suffered, gaining just 62 yards over the last two games.
