COVID can’t smash my fantasy season. Accidents? Perhaps.
Loads has modified since my Week Three Remainder of Season Rankings. Again then, no group had a single COVID case, Nick Chubb and Austin Ekeler had totally useful legs, and Tyler Higbee was a top-5 tight finish. As we enter one other week of soccer throughout a really unsure season, it’s necessary to recollect how shortly issues can change. Jonathan Taylor was seen as a low-end RB2, then a mid-RB1 briefly, and now he’s seen as a higher-end RB2. Perceptions about anybody can change drastically inside just a few weeks.
It’s why you must discover one thing like Chase Claypool‘s four-touchdown efficiency and acknowledge his full vary of outcomes. He may very well be a WR2 ROS, or he might simply stay the third greatest receiver on his group. Search for a development earlier than totally making a choice a couple of participant’s worth, however have a look at vary of outcomes when evaluating a participant’s potential.
Together with my remainder of season rankings, I’ve recognized gamers with probably the most potential to rise or fall in worth. It’s mainly a buy-sell checklist. Do not forget that these rankings take into account a PPR format, and my rankings take into account my present valuation of every participant primarily based on their vary of outcomes. Get pleasure from!
League winners come from ambiguous backfields, and the Cardinals have turn out to be one of many weirdest, most ambiguous backfields within the league. Drake has dominated the carries each week, however Edmonds has stolen virtually the entire backfield receiving work and has a knack for locating the top zone. Edmonds has additionally seemed flat out extra explosive than Drake, who’s averaging Three.7 yards per carry in 2020. I doubt this backfield will stay in its present bizarre break up, the place Drake leads in carries and snaps however not fantasy factors. If the Cardinals deal with Drake as they did David Johnson final yr, Edmonds might steal this backfield for himself and turn out to be a low-end RB2 or higher. In case your group is missing at working again, Edmonds is a superb goal proper now.
Nick Chubb and Austin Ekeler
In the event you’re sitting close to the highest of the standings and have some further depth, it’s a good time to commerce for an injured stud working again. In the event you can simply keep within the playoff race in the course of the subsequent few weeks through which everyone seems to be coping with bye weeks, why not strengthen your playoff roster? This can work particularly properly in case you commerce a wholesome working again, because the Chubb or Ekeler proprietor seemingly wants somebody to fill in. When you have somebody like Antonio Gibson in your bench or as a flex choice, it may be mutually useful to commerce him for somebody like Chubb, who will enhance your playoff roster at little expense to your present roster.
Gurley seemed fairly mediocre till he confronted back-to-back bottom-Three groups in opposition to the run. Don’t let the touchdowns idiot you; he’s not going to complete as an RB1 this yr. He might play the half for just a few extra weeks, however the matchups get robust after Week eight, the place 5 out his remaining 7 related video games are bottom-half matchups. Week eight could be the perfect time to promote, however his worth is definitely greater now than will probably be on the finish of the yr, so go nuts.
Melvin Gordon III
Gordon was going to be on this checklist even earlier than the information of his DUI got here out. With a possible 2-Three week suspension and Phillip Lindsay’s return, Gordon’s worth is trending downward. Except somebody in your league doesn’t discover the DUI information, now is just not a superb time to promote Gordon. Even when he isn’t suspended, Lindsay might minimize into his workload. You’ll simply have to carry him as his worth sinks into low-end RB2 territory. Like Chubb/Ekeler, Gordon may very well be a superb commerce goal proper now, as he has potential to duplicate his present manufacturing come playoff time.
