Except in any other case famous, solely gamers owned in fewer than 50 p.c of Yahoo leagues thought of.

J.D. McKissic, RB, Washington. Antonio Gibson (shin) was ineffective and out and in of Sunday’s recreation, which allowed McKissic to publish 110 whole yards on 16 touches (eight catches) in opposition to the Chiefs. A bit of that manufacturing got here in rubbish time, however with Gibson bothered by his nagging harm, it would not be a shock to see Washington give him every week off someday quickly. Both means, McKissic is a must have handcuff who can have standalone PPR worth through the bye weeks. If Gibson does miss time, McKissic could be an RB2 in all codecs. Subsequent week, he’ll face Inexperienced Bay.

Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR, Browns. The Browns have an unreliable receiving corps, so it is robust to be ok with anybody, however Peoples-Jones has stepped up over the previous two video games. He caught 4 passes (5 targets) for 101 yards and two TDs in Week 6, although it must be famous a 57-yard Hail Mary on the finish of the primary half accounted for a good quantity of that manufacturing. Both means, with Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) banged up and Jarvis Landry (knee) not anticipated to be a goal hog when he returns, DPJ has the potential to be a reasonably constant producer. He’ll tackle Denver in Week 7.

T.Y. Hilton, WR, Colts. Hilton missed the primary 5 video games of the yr whereas nursing a neck harm, however he regarded good in his return, catching all 4 of his targets for 80 yards in opposition to Houston. Hilton really led the Colts in targets, which maybe says extra about his comparatively low ceiling than anything, however we all know he is able to massive performs in any matchup, so he is a pleasant man to have round through the bye weeks. He is in play subsequent week in opposition to San Francisco and will likely be an particularly good play in Week 8 in opposition to Tennessee. 

Rhamondre Stevenson, RB, Patriots. Damien Harris hobbled out and in of Sunday’s recreation within the fourth quarter, however even earlier than that, Stevenson was getting common taking part in time, particularly on passing downs. The bruising rookie completed with eight touches (three catches), 62 whole yards, and a TD. It is unlikely Harris will miss time, however Stevenson figures to have a task regardless. With a extremely favorable matchup in opposition to the Jets on faucet in Week 7, Stevenson will likely be price a minimum of a flex spot.

D’Ernest Johnson, RB, Browns. Johnson’s final waiver worth relies on the well being of each Kareem Hunt (calf) and Nick Chubb (calf). Chubb did not play in final week’s recreation, whereas Hunt exited early. With the Browns taking part in on Thursday evening in Week 7, Johnson might discover himself in a main RB function or a secondary one. Both means, he’ll have worth within the Browns’ run-heavy offense. Whereas he did not do a lot final week, that was partly due to recreation script. We have seen him shine up to now when one in all Cleveland’s prime RBs is out, and he can do it in opposition to the Broncos, too.
