Nfl Tickets – Week 6 Fantasy Pickups
Aug 21, 2017 // By:admin // No Comment
Here are some players that could be worth picking up if they’re available in your fantasy football league:
Mercedes Lewis, Tight End, Jacksonville Jaguars: Lewis scored twice in Week 5 and is proving to be a reliable red zone target for David Garrard. He’s not going to rack up the yardage, which makes him somewhat dependent on finding the end zone, but he’s working his way up to becoming an every week starter.
Kenny Britt, Wide Receiver, Tennessee Titans: Britt had a big game against the Cowboys and has now scored in three consecutive weeks. It’s not easy to trust Vince Young and this passing game from a fantasy perspective, but Britt has to be picked up at this point. Technically he’s not starting when both Nate Washington and Justin Gage are healthy, but he’s their best wideout.
Danny Amendola, Wide Receiver, St. Louis Rams: Mark Clayton will miss the rest of the season, which allows Amendola to step up as Sam Bradford’s favorite target. He’s not a big play threat, but could be a viable play in PPR leagues.
Mike Hart, Running Back, Indianapolis Colts: Joseph Addai went down with a shoulder injury and Donald Brown is nursing a hamstring, so Hart could receive a solid workload again in Week 6. He scored the Colts’ only touchdown against the Chiefs and ran well overall.
David Garrard, Quarterback, Jacksonville Jaguars: Garrard has five touchdowns in two weeks and actually has had a solid fantasy season save his terrible Week 2 performance. He’s a good backup to have and is worth a start in good matchups.
Shaun Hill, Quarterback, Detroit Lions: Hill has posted back-to-back 20-point weeks and probably has one more start to go before Matthew Stafford returns after the team’s Week 7 bye. Hill racks up the yards and throws some TDs, but the turnovers that kill him in real life won’t sink your fantasy day. If you need a short term option, he could help you.
Steve Johnson, Wide Receiver, Buffalo Bills: Johnson has four touchdowns in three weeks and has emerged as a favorite target of Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Brandon Pettigrew, Tight End, Detroit Lions: Pettigrew has a lot of competition for catches in Detroit, but his sure-handedness is earning him looks regularly.
Jermaine Gresham, Tight End, Cincinnati Bengals: Gresham could lose some value when Jordan Shipley returns, but he’s a decent option if you need tight end help. Ahem, Jermichael Finley owners.
Heath Miller, Tight End, Pittsburgh Steelers: He’s not going to sell any NFL tickets, but Big Ben likes to target him in the red zone, which makes him worth a look.
Josh Freeman, Quarterback, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Freeman has been consistently good this season and even adds some value with some rushing yards. He’s not worthy of being your starting quarterback yet, but he’s definitely a decent backup to have. There’s a chance he’s out there on the waiver wire.
Chester Taylor, Running Back, Minnesota Vikings: Taylor actually got 18 carries on Matt Forte’s big day against the Panthers. Forte is the guy, but the Bears are getting Taylor involved. He’s worth a flyer if you can spare the roster spot and would gain a ton of value were Forte to get hurt.
