Fantasy Football: Post Week Six You’ve Got To Be Kidding Me

Follow on Twitter@cimini

Frustrated fantasy football owners have expanded after week six. Stars that are supposed to perform are continuing to spiral downward. Before we look into possible waiver wire options lets examine and point the finger in this week’s you’ve got to be kidding me performances.


Jameis Winston
We all should of known that Jameis Winston was going to have a horrible game. He had already faced Carolina earlier this season. To win that game the Buccaneers used a safe offensive game plan. Not this time around as Jameis Winston through an inexcusable five interceptions.

Baker Mayfield
It’s safe to say the Browns projections on hitting their win total and to be the division champs are out the window. Baker Mayfield continues to be uncontrollable from a turnover stand point for four quarters and was the main reason for a close home loss to the Seahawks.

Daniel Jones
Opportunities were there for Jones against the Patriots but the rookie could not execute. Take away his deep ball to Golden Tate and it was a woeful performance from Jones. After a couple of explosion fantasy games it looks like Jones best season performances are behind him.

Running Backs

Ronald Jones
Jones did find the end zone to alleviate some of the pain from his dud outing. Jones who had been getting regular carries mysteriously only received four Sunday. Using him as a flex option is too risky as the Buccaneers have been too sporadic with his usage.

Damien Williams
A back that everyone thought would be golden has faltered to near useless in Damien Williams. Just like Jones his usage was minimal but offset by a touchdown Sunday. Yet with just one carry and one catch Williams as an option going forward is hard to predict.

Wide Receivers

With Mason Rudolph Schuster had his moments from a fantasy stand point. Two big catches against the 49ers and Ravens boosted Schuster’s value to a wide receiver two level. Sunday he did not register a point for standard football leagues leaving Schuster as one of the bigger high drafted busts in fantasy football.

Tyler Boyd
Up until Sunday Boyd’s production had warranted him as a top-tier wide receiver. One can’t blame him completely but Andy Dalton did find other targets that were viable options against Baltimore. Hopefully this is just a one time thing for Boyd.

Denard Robinson
In the Chiefs octane offense Robinson has suddenly deflated entirely. After his breakout game earlier in the year it appeared Robinson would have long standing use. With Tyreek Hill back in the fold that appears to be nullified entirely.
