Post Week Six One Week Wonders

In the fantasy football world more times than not potential waiver wire adds are one week wonders. Zack examines some of the popular names that likely hit their ceiling.

Brock Osweiler
We’ve seen this Brock Osweiler in the past and know it’s not leading to anything special. Osweiler dodged an early third quarter turnover to have a phenomenal fourth quarter. Yet one can’t ignore the stagnant Dolphins offense of the first three quarters. That and Ryan Tannehill’s long term status should be safe from an injury return.

Frank Gore

The Dolphins running back feasted on the Chicago Bears defense. Gore’s strong runs kept the Dolphins in the game. Gore eclipsing over 100 yards is definitely reason to scour to the wire. Yet expect more of a toned down norm involving the veteran. A realistic standard should be between forty and sixty yards a game with an occasional touchdown.

Corey Clement

Clement got the treasured touchdown in the Eagles convincing win over the Giants. Yet it appears that Wendell Smallwood has the upper hand in terms of carries. Philadelphia is also a high throw red-zone team that likes to feature their tall receivers and top tier tight end in Zach Ertz.

Ito Smith

A guy that has stood on waivers through a long-term injury suddenly has become the man to scoop. Everyone knew Smith’s role during DeVanta Freeman’s four-week absence yet stayed away from Smith. Now with Freeman on injured reserve everyone wants a piece of Smith. Truth be told Smith has been fortunate to get the touchdowns he has. His volume is too low to have dependable reliance on a fantasy football team.

Cole Beasley

Beasley’s breakout game gave every fantasy owner flashbacks to last year and prior seasons. With the Cowboys not having a true number one wide receiver no one has been able to step up. That’s where I see Beasley’s recent breakout as a true one-week wonder specialist. Dallas’s offense has been too mundane to trust it through the air.

Chris Godwin
Certain quarterbacks feature their wide receivers differently. Comparing Jameis Winston to Ryan Fitzpatrick the odd man out is Chris Godwin. This is noticeable as the Bucs had thirty receptions in a shoot out against the Falcons. Godwin did get into the end zone and had the team high of catches in six. Yet the yards are where one should be alarmed. He finished fifth of all Buccaneers. Touchdowns will come down with Jameis, which makes Godwin expendable.

Tyrell Williams
Williams was the road difference a team needs to get off to a great start. He hauled in two early touchdowns on deep balls against the Browns. One in fact could of went to the corner but Williams mitted the ball with his big hands. While the Chargers will continue to call home run balls don’t expect Williams to top his two touchdown performance of week six.
