3 days agoCincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd finished with just 10 yards on three catches (seven targets) during the loss to the Ravens. After seeing 14 looks from quarterback Andy Dalton against the Cardinals in Week 5, the 24-year-old was held in check throughout this one. With A.J. Green (ankle) expected back for the Week 7 encounter with Jacksonville, his role moving forward is somewhat of a mystery at the moment. Keep an eye on his progress, but the window of opportunity to sell-high after his efficient outing against Arizona may have closed for good.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 days agoCincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate led the way offensively in the loss to Baltimore, finishing with five receptions for 91 yards on a game-high 12 targets. With Joe Mixon and Tyler Boyd unable to get anything going, Tate was the only bright spot offensively for the Bengals on the day. However, with veteran A.J. Green (ankle) expected to return within the next week or so, time is running out for fantasy managers to get value out of him as a credible streaming option. Keep an eye on Green's status for Week 7 against Jacksonville and take it from there.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 days agoCincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon was virtually lifeless in the loss to the Ravens on Sunday. After rushing for a season-high 93 yards on 19 carries, things appeared to be trending in the right direction for the 23-year-old. However, after finishing with just 10 yards on eight attempts while scrounging up a few receptions, fantasy managers were left disappointed once again. With the team struggling, Mixon continues to get no support from the weak Bengals offensive line. He will try to get on track against the Jaguars in Week 7, but at this point, don't hold your breath.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 days agoCincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton went 21-for-39 for 235 yards and an interception on Sunday against the Ravens. While he didn't throw a touchdown in this one, he did manage to rush one in late in the fourth quarter. The Bengals winless season continues, but the veteran quarterback can't take all of the blame as he is playing behind arguably the worst offensive line in the league while getting virtually no support on the defensive end. With six losses in the books, Dalton and company will look to get it together against Jacksonville in Week 7.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 days agoCleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield appeared to injure his lower back in the third quarter against the Seahawks. Mayfield was taken to the locker room for evaluation, but he promptly returned without missing a single snap and is currently back in the game. It appears Mayfield will tough this one out, but his Week 7 status needs to be monitored.--Mike Riggall - RotoBallerSource: Mary Kay Cabot - Twitter
Share:
3 days agoSeattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly went down in Week 6 against the Browns with an injury to his achilles. The injury was non-contact, and Dissly was quickly ruled out for the remainder of the game. At the time of the injury, Dissly was just targeted just once and failed to haul it in. Luke Willson is in at tight end for the rest of the afternoon, and currently has one catch for five yards. Dissly's Week 7 status is in doubt and needs to be monitored.--Mike Riggall - RotoBallerSource: Darin Gantt - Pro Football Talk
Share:
3 days agoThe Panthers Defense brutalized the Tampa offense during the Week 6 matchup in London. With seven sacks on the day, including receiving 2.5 from Gerald McCoy against his former team, Carolina was relentless by also forcing quarterback Jameis Winston to throw five interceptions. With a week off, the team will have a stiff challenge against a sound 49ers offense in Week 8.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
Share:
3 days agoTampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber was unable to get anything going against the Panthers in Week 6, gaining just 28 yards on 10 carries on the day. Barber did get more carries than backfield mate Ronald Jones II, but could not find any holes and was otherwise a non-factor in what turned out to be a pass-heavy game. Barber has established himself through the first 6 weeks of the season as borderline unstartable in any fantasy format and should be treated as such. The Bucs have a bye in Week 7 before another tough matchup against the Titans in Tennessee in Week 8.--Yossef Magazzinich - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com
Share:
3 days agoSeattle Seahawks tight end Dissly missed last season with an injury to his right knee, so this is a brand new injury to his left Achilles. We don't know the severity yet, but it was bad enough to immediately rule him out for the rest of the game. It took him a couple of minutes to get off the turf and it sure seems like this is a serious injury. Stay tuned. At tight end, Luke Willson will take over and he's an athletic TE who may become a threat.--Austyn Varney - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com
Share:
3 days agoCarolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen was targeted seven times against the Buccaneers on Sunday and finished with four catches for 52 yards. After failing to record a catch against the Jaguars in Week 5 while recording just two in Week 4, the veteran's performance in London was a slight improvement. Nonetheless, Olsen has been a disappointment from a fantasy perspective and should only be expected to produce efficient performances on sporadic occasions throughout the remainder of the season regardless of who is under center for the Panthers.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
Share:
3 days agoTampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II was unable to get going Sunday, gaining only 10 yards on four carries, but did score a touchdown to save his day. Jones again fell victim to the Bucs unpredictable backfield rotation after starting to seemingly separate himself from the pack, seeing fewer snaps and touches than fellow backfield mate Peyton Barber in Week 6. It will be hard for fantasy owners to trust Jones until something changes in that backfield. Until then, he can be considered a very low-end bye week fill-in option. The Bucs are off in Week 7 before a tough matchup against the Titans in Week 8.--Yossef Magazzinich - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com
Share:
3 days agoCarolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel recorded four catches for 70 yards, while also recording a pair of touchdowns against Tampa Bay on Sunday. Samuel got it done in all areas in London, rushing for a score midway through the third quarter before catching a touchdown off of a 13-yard pass from quarterback Kyle Allen in the fourth. With Cam Newton (foot) potentially returning after the Week 7 bye, the 23-year-old will continue to split the bulk of the targets with fellow wideout D.J. Moore and running back Christian McCaffrey regardless of who is under center.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
Share:
3 days agoTampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston disappointed fantasy owners in a big way Sunday, completing 30-of-54 passes for 400 yards and a touchdown to go along with an absurd five interceptions. Winston wasn't given an inch on the day, getting sacked seven times and losing a fumble in the process. Anything Winston did through the first four weeks to gain fantasy owner's confidence has been thrown out the window over the last two weeks. This shouldn't come as the biggest surprise though, as inconsistency has been the theme of Winston's career. The Bucs have a bye in Week 7 before a tough matchup against the Titans in Tennessee, Winston will slot in as a mid-range QB2 for that matchup.--Yossef Magazzinich - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com
Share:
3 days agoCarolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore recorded 73 yards off of seven catches during the win over the Buccaneers in London. With 10 targets on the day, Moore kept it going after recording six receptions for 91 yards against the Jaguars in Week 5. The quarterback situation remains a mystery as the team heads toward the bye, but the 22-year-old should remain involved regardless of who is under center while continuing to split the majority of the targets with Curtis Samuel, who finished with two touchdowns on the day.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
Share:
3 days agoCarolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey recorded just 57 total yards against Tampa Bay on Sunday, but still managed to find the end zone twice in Week 6. While McCaffrey was stuffed by the Buccaneers Defense by rushing for an abysmal 31 yards on 22 attempts, he offset his shoddy numbers with a touchdown run late in the first quarter, while acquiring his second off of a 25-yard pass from Kyle Allen. With the team heading into a bye, the potential MVP will look to keep it going in Week 8 against the 49ers.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
Share:
3 days agoCarolina Panthers quarterback Kyle Allen recorded his fourth straight win on Sunday against Tampa Bay in London. While Jameis Winston recorded five interceptions on the day, Allen was able to get it done by finishing with 227 yards and two touchdowns on 20-for-32 passing. With the Panthers heading into a bye, things will get interesting for the Panthers if Cam Newton (foot) can return for the Week 8 matchup with San Francisco. Fantasy managers will want to monitor the situation, but Allen should remain on rosters until Newton is officially back in the mix as a starter.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
Share:
3 days agoNew Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara (ankle) is active against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Kamara gets a juicy matchup in Week 6, though he might be limited. Even if he has a smaller role, he should still put up RB1 numbers against Jacksonville.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: New Orleans Saints

3 days agoBaltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown (ankle) is inactive against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 6 while tight end Mark Andrews (shoulder) will play. Andrews is a TE1 with upside, as quarterback Lamar Jackson will lean on him in the passing game. Ravens slot receiver Willie Snead could be a sneaky sleeper without Brown in the fold.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

3 days agoKansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is officially inactive for Week 6. His absence should give the rest of the Kansas City offense more opportunities. In a likely shootout against the Houston Texans, Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson are flex plays while Tyreek Hill is back and ready to resume his WR1 role.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

3 days agoMiami Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson (calf) is active for Week 6 against the Washington Redskins. Wilson gets a great matchup against the Redskins, who rank 30th in the NFL in fantasy points against wide receivers. He is a WR4 in this contest and is likely a tier below fellow receivers Preston Williams and Devante Parker.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

3 days agoSeattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (hamstring) is ruled out for Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns. The 23-year-old has now missed three games this year with the injury and will likely carry a questionable tag heading into next week. Penny's absence will mean more touches for starter Chris Carson. C.J. Prosise will backup Carson but won't do enough to have fantasy value. Carson is an elite RB1.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: Ian Rapoport

3 days agoJacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey (back) is inactive for Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints. This news comes after Ramsey reportedly told Jaguars owner Shad Khan that he would play earlier this week. Jacksonville will find it harder to stop Saints wideout Michael Thomas without Ramsey and will need corner A.J. Bouye to step up once again. The Jaguars are an iffy fantasy play in Week 6.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: Ian Rapoport
Share:
3 days agoKansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill (shoulder) is cleared to play for the Week 6 showdown against the Houston Texans. Hill returns to the field after missing four games with the clavicle injury and he'll see a great matchup. The Texans have surrendered 42.04 points to opposing wideouts, ranked 27th in the NFL. In a game destined for offensive firepower, Hill is a WR1.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: Ian Rapoport

3 days agoPhiladelphia Flyers forward Travis Konecny picked up a power-play assist in Saturday's loss to the Canucks, giving him six points in his team's first three games. Despite operating on the second power-play unit, Konecny has notched a power-play point in three straight games now. His lack of shot production (2.33 shots per game) or high usage (16:37 average time on ice) this season suggests that his hot start should taper off soon, making him an ideal sell-high candidate this early in the season. At only 22 years-old, Konecny could have a higher ceiling than the 50 points that he flirted with each of the last two seasons, but until he sees more than the sixth most time on ice among Philadelphia forwards, it will be difficult for him to reach that.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
Share:
3 days ago Vancouver Canucks goaltender Jacob Markstrom turned away two of the three shots he faced in the shootout to secure his second win of the season on Saturday night. Markstrom saw 32 shots through regulation and overtime, allowing only two goals on his way to a .938 save percentage. Through four starts, Markstrom has now posted a save percentage above .930 percent in all but one game. In the only two years that Markstrom has received the starter's share of the workload, he held identical .912 save percentage rates and has a career save percentage of only .909 percent. Whether this is simply a temporary hot streak or not, Markstrom is only owned in 69 percent of Yahoo! leagues, and as the unquestioned starter playing well, that number should be higher.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
Share:
3 days agoVegas Golden Knights forward Mark Stone and William Carrier each tallied a goal and an assist in a 6-2 victory over the Calgary Flames. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, it was a balanced attack for Vegas, with 12 of the 18 dressed skaters getting points. Marc-Andre Fleury had a solid game for the Knights, stopping 33 of 35 shots. --Nate Duffett - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
Share:
3 days agoThis is the second consecutive game Stills will sit out with a strained hamstring he picked up in week 4. Keke Coutee will once again get the start in the slot and he makes for an interesting DFS start in what should be a shootout. DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller have great match-ups and both are elite plays against this weak Chiefs secondary. Stills will get his next opportunity to return next week in Indianapolis.--Austyn Varney - RotoBallerSource: Dianna Russini

3 days agoBoston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask posted a 31 save shutout in the home opener, to earn a 3-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils. Rask now has a 3-0 record for the season with a 1.33 GAA and .957 save percentage. If he continues this stellar play then it could change, but Rask and Jaroslav Halak have been going game-for-game for the starting role, which will hurt Rask's fantasy value. However, Rask has shown to be a much better goalie with tons of rest, so his production could falter if thrown into a bigger role. --Nate Duffett - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
Share:
3 days agoBoston Bruins forward Brad Marchand was a force in the Bruins 3-0 win over the New Jersey Devils, tallying a goal and an assist. Marchand has increased his point totals every season since 2014, and if he keeps this form all season there is no reason to believe he wouldn't eclipse the 100-point plateau once again this season. Joakim Nordstrom and Patrice Bergeron rounded out the scoring for the Bruins in their home-opening win. --Nate Duffett - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
Share:
3 days agoOttawa Senators forward Vladislav Namestinkov buried two goals and added an assist to lead the Senators to a 4-2 win over his former team the Tampa Bay Lightning. Namestinkov scored the winner with three minutes remaining before adding an empty netter to put the game away. While it was a big night for Namestinkov, he has been traded twice in the past three seasons for a reason and his inconsistencies will continue to be a problem. Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Colin White were the other goal scorers for the Senators, with Craig Anderson stopping 19 of 21 shots for the win. --Nate Duffett - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
