Fantasy Football: Week 6 Deep Sleepers – Preston Williams Coming Into His Own

With his Week 6 deep sleepers, senior fantasy football expert Adam Ronis identifies require several emerging gems for your starting lineup!

Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams

Week 6 Deep Sleepers

This is the first week with four teams on bye as the Bills, Bears, Raiders, and Colts are off. With several injuries and more players being added to the injury report on Thursday and Friday, it’s the first week where digging deeper could be necessary. Here are some deep sleepers for Week 6.

Carolina Panthers QB Kyle AllenQB Kyle Allen, Carolina Panthers

Some thought Allen would be the answer for the Panthers when Cam Newton went down, and Allen looked good against the Cardinals with 261 passing yards and four touchdowns. In the two games since, Allen hasn’t been as good and has had trouble holding on to the football, fumbling six times, losing five. Allen should get back on track against the Buccaneers, who have been one of the top teams against the run and struggle against the pass. The Buccaneers held Christian McCaffrey to 37 yards on 16 carries in Week 2. The Panthers had wide receivers getting open consistently against the Buccaneers, who allow the sixth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks.

RB Gus Edwards, Baltimore Ravens

The Bengals have been getting gashed by the run, allowing at least 175 rushing yards in three of five games. Almost every game, two running backs have been relevant for fantasy most week. The Ravens are a run-oriented team and will thrive against the Bengals, who have allowed the second-most fantasy points to running backs, including six rushing touchdowns. The game script should be in favor of the Ravens, putting Edwards is in a good spot to get double-digit touches.

RB Ito Smith, Atlanta Falcons

Smith is getting more snaps than a typical backup running back. He played 47 percent of the snaps last week and had double-digit touches. That could happen again against the Cardinals, who play at high-pace. With the Falcons’ defense struggling, there should be a lot of plays on both sides. Smith had five carries for 19 yards and six receptions for 45 yards last week. It’s the second straight week Smith reached double-digit points in PPR formats.



Kansas City Chiefs WR Byron PringleWR Byron Pringle, Kansas City Chiefs

Pringle is a better play if Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins are out. There is a chance Hill returns, and it’s unlikely Watkins plays due to a hamstring injury. Pringle would benefit if Watkins is out, and he looked good last week. Pringle had six catches for 103 yards with a touchdown on eight targets. It was the first time he was given a big opportunity, and he excelled. With a 55-point over/under against the Texans, Pringle is a consideration for those with bye week issues and injuries.

WR Preston Williams, Miami Dolphins

If there was ever a week to feel good about the Dolphins, it’s this one. They are 3.5-point underdogs at home against the winless Redskins. Williams has been one of the few bright spots this year. Williams has at least six targets in three of four games, and Josh Rosen tends to look for him more. In two games with Rosen, Williams has 19 targets. Williams has double-digit points in PPR formats in three of four games.

WR Auden Tate, Cincinnati Bengals

Tate is becoming more involved in the offense over the last few games. He has three consecutive games of at least six targets and has at least nine points in PPR formats in each of those games. Despite dropping a touchdown last week, he came through with three catches for 26 yards with a touchdown. The Bengals are 11-point underdogs and will continue to pass a lot.

TE Noah Fant, Denver Broncos

Finding a deep sleeper at tight end is difficult. It’s a thin position, and it doesn’t help that four teams are on bye.

Fant hasn’t been a big part of the offense. He has one game of double-digit points in PPR formats and hasn’t seen more than four targets in any game. The reason why the rookie could produce is the matchup. The Titans have allowed a touchdown to a tight end in every game except one, and in that game, Austin Hooper had nine catches for 130 yards.

Superflex Dynasty Rookie Rankings – Round One

SuperFlex leagues are becoming more popular each year with the glut of the position of quarterback becomes more prevalent across the fantasy landscape.

SuperFlex leagues are becoming more popular each year with the glut of the position of quarterback becomes more prevalent across the fantasy landscape. Seems every team even in 12 team leagues has 2 quality options to choose from on most non-bye weeks. Superflex allows you to flex that muscle of QB depth rather than wasting away on your bench. Here are our post NFL Draft SuperFlex Dynasty Rookie Rankings for your upcoming 2021 Dynasty Rookie Drafts. Clicking on a player’s name will open his scouting profile we posted to FFToolbox.

1. Trevor Lawrence, QB – Jaguars

Lawrence is a no-brainer at the top of any quarterback premium formats. He enters the NFL with top-10 dynasty value at his position and will be in position to further improve upon that value. The Urban Meyer-led offense is sneakily loaded with playmakers who will flourish under the arm talent of Lawrence. Expect DJ Chark and Marvin Jones to man the outside while second-year breakout candidate Laviska Shenault operates out of the slot. The dangerous tandem of Travis Etienne and James Robinson will provide a nice security blanket out of the backfield. Fire away with Lawrence at 1.01.

2. Justin Fields, QB – Bears

Despite being the fourth quarterback taken in the NFL draft, Justin Fields sits just below Lawrence at second overall due to his combination of elite arm and leg talent. Once the Bears bench Andy Dalton after four games, Fields will step in and immediately pay dividends for fantasy owners. A Dak Prescott-like rookie season is within reach with Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney being a thunder and lightning duo on the outside. Matt Nagy’s play calling will improve with the rookie phenom at the helm of the offense.

Dynasty and Superflex Rookie Quarterbacks Outlook

In fantasy, an anchor at the Quarterback position is underrated. Many think you can just get one off the waiver wire, but having an Andrew Luck on your team proved to be quite valuable in years’ past. Is Trevor Lawrence worth a premium pick in your rookie draft? What about in Superflex? Who’s the #2 […]

Let’s take a deeper dive with our NFL Scouting Analyst Riley Bymaster and specifically look at it from a fantasy perspective with player comparisons and projected dynasty average draft position for your upcoming rookie drafts.

Trevor Lawrence – Clemson / 6’6″ – 213 lbs

After three years of wrecking the NCAA, our golden boy is finally entering the NFL. Lawrence holds one of the most impressive resumes in recent memory and looks to continue his success at the next level.

Lawrence brings his tall, skinny frame with hopes of adding muscle mass before facing off against NFL defenders. He is a polished passer, showing excellent accuracy and ball placement to all levels of the field. He has good arm strength and will not struggle to drive the ball down field. Lawrence is a great athlete who will not be afraid to tuck and run when the play breaks down, which adds an extra plus-element to his future fantasy value. Though he has been deemed a so-called generational prospect, Lawrence does need improvements in multiple aspects of his game. Disguised coverages can throw him off course and force ill-advised throws. His delivery and release can be a bit too long and slowz which could be problematic sooner than later. Lawrence remains one of the best quarterbacks to enter the league in the last decade, and he has a great chance to solidify himself as such.

  • Grade: High-end starter – pocket passer
  • Draft Projection: 1st Overall
  • Projected DFWC ADP: 9th or 10th pick aggressively, no later than early 2nd. In Superflex he’s the #1 Rookie pick overall. 
  • Comparison: Justin Herbert
  • Bottom Line: Lawrence is the 1.01 in any superflex or 2QB formats, even if you’re not a believer. Worst case, he will perform at a low-end QB1 level for years to come.

Dynasty Rookie Tight Ends Outlook

kyle_pitts

Rookie tight end is a deeper than expected class this year which includes an elite can’t miss prospect, but what does that mean for dynasty rookie drafts in the Dynasty Football World Championships? Let’s take a deeper dive into the NFL rookie class of 2021 tight ends. Kyle Pitts – Florida / 6’6″ – 245 […]

Rookie tight end is a deeper than expected class this year which includes an elite can’t miss prospect, but what does that mean for dynasty rookie drafts in the Dynasty Football World Championships? Let’s take a deeper dive into the NFL rookie class of 2021 tight ends.

Kyle Pitts – Florida / 6’6″ – 245
Pitts is an athletic freak who is able to work in-line, in the slot, and outside the numbers. He will be a gigantic mismatch in the red zone by using his size and massive catch radius. With excellent body control and ability to adjust to back-shoulder throws, Pitts will be impossible to cover man-to-man. He holds his own as a blocker and does surprisingly well creating lanes in the run game. Though he shows the potential to be a high-end weapon, Pitts is not a can’t-miss prospect. He struggles to separate against man coverage and isn’t a fluid athlete, albeit difficult to fully coordinate a 6’6″ frame. He often double-clutches the ball, which will allow defenders an extra chance to break up the play.

  • Grade: High-end starter
  • Comparison: Jimmy Graham
  • NFL Draft Projection: 1st
  • Projected DFWC ADP: Mid 1st Round 
  • Bottom Line: Pitts has the ability to be a high-end, pass-catching tight end should he improve his route fluidity. He’s far from a generational player, but he will be a Noah Fant-level weapon for years to come. Ease the hype just a bit, folks.

Pat Freiermuth – Penn State / 6’5″ – 245

Freiermuth is an all-around player who will excel as a blocker just as much as a receiver. He has a strong, well-balanced frame to help engage and hold blocks with ease. Freiermuth is comfortable hitting the seam and is tough to bring down with the ball in his hands. He tracks the ball well but needs to come down with a higher percentage of contested catches. His speed is slightly above average, but he wins in all other facets. Knowing when and where to sit down in coverage is a plus and will benefit his NFL quarterback almost immediately. Once he refines his route running and boosts his confidence in his hands, watch out for the Freiermuth explosion.
