Start \'Em Or Sit \'Em For Fantasy Football Week 6

This week's Rapid Fire is going to feature quite a bit of trade talk, if only because the question thread in the B/R app was brimming with those types of inquiries.

Gotta give the people what they want.


jelly27 wants some wide receiver help: "[DJ] Moore, [Mike] Evans, [Kenny] Golladay, Hollywood Brown. Need 2 full PPR."

Despite last week's goose egg, Evans is a start alongside Golladay, who has 60-plus receiving yards and a score in two of his last three games. Brown is a close third.


zach_21 wonders if this is as good as it's going to get in Green Bay: "Should I sell high on Aaron Jones?"

Well, if ever there were a time to do it, this is it. It depends on what you can get and what your team needs, but Jones' value likely isn't getting any higher than it is right now.

This comes down to whether you believe his huge Week 5 was an aberration or the start of a trend. With Jamaal Williams lurking in the shadows once he clears the concussion protocol, I lean toward the least in the long term.


jedistone has quarterback questions: "Help. Tom Brady or Lamar Jackson. This is hard for me."

Wow. I thought you Jedi were more even-keeled. The New York Giants and Cincinnati Bengals are both favorable matchups for respective quarterbacks, but Jackson's rushing ability seals the deal. Go with the sophomore.


byuh got a trade offer: "Would you trade [DeAndre] Hopkins for Dak [Prescott] and [Tyreek] Hill?"

It would certainly help to know your situation at quarterback. But if you're looking to upgrade there, the drop-off from Hopkins to Hill isn't that steep, especially with Hill on the verge of a return.


oklaplayer has to pick between two Washington players: "PPR league…do I start Chris Thompson or [Terry] McLaurin at my flex."

Ugh and double-ugh. It's next to impossible to trust any Redskins pass-catchers given the state of their offense. Thompson could at least see a lot of dump-offs out of the backfield. Go with him.


domdc87 needs trade help: "Should I trade Courtland Sutton and Ito Smith for Kerryon Johnson and Auden Tate?"

Unless you really need a bump in the backfield, this is a hold. Sutton has top-15 fantasy upside, and it's entirely possible Smith will get more work moving forward given how underwhelming Devonta Freeman has been. Johnson is an OK RB2, and Auden Tate is essentially a throw-in.


therealGM needs a WR2 and a flex: ".5PPR. [Michael] Gallup, Alshon [Jeffery] and Calvin Ridley."

Jeffery will probably draw Minnesota Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes in coverage Sunday. That's not a good thing. Start Gallup and Ridley.


One more trade question, this time from


 "Trade [DJ] Chark and Greg Olsen for Mike Evans?"

In one final example of how weird the 2019 season has already become: No.

Chark is fifth in PPR fantasy points (almost 10 slots ahead of Evans) among wide receivers, and there's been no sign the youngster is going to slow down any time soon.
