Alright! Moving on to Week 7.
I feel like a lot of fantasy teams were absolutely awful this weekend. If you think yours was one of the worst, send it to me on Twitter @DonaldGibsonFF, and I'll try to make you as famous as possible.
How does Week 7 look?
1. Alex Smith: Even as the perennial winner of the NFL's favorite game manager, Smith has an extremely favorable schedule coming up. He plays New Orleans this week (2nd most passing yards/game allowed), followed by Indianapolis (3rd), Jacksonville (25th, probably still bad though), Carolina (11th), and Tampa Bay (13th). Carson Palmer owners, I have your man.
1. Jay Ajayi: Well, that was unexpected. Jay Ajayi ran for 204 rushing yards on only 25 carries (8.2 YPA), which is, ya know, good. To complicate matters, Arian Foster is now "healthy" (please note that I took time to make the quotation marks bold). Had Ajayi done normal things this week, I'd imagine Foster is the unquestioned starter. After Ajayi's Week 6 performance, however, I think Ajayi earned himself part of the backfield. There's a good chance he was dropped after plenty of disappointing weeks.
2. Justin Forsett: Forsett signed with the Lions last week, and he was fairly limited in his first game in Detroit, recording only five carries for five yards. Forsett's role will presumably increase over the next few weeks as he becomes acclimated to the Lions offense, but his ceiling will be limited by the imminent return of Theo Riddick. Regardless, the Lions like to use two running backs, and Forsett should probably be owned.
3. Knile Davis: This is only for the very nervous Eddie Lacy owners. James Starks will be out for a few weeks, and the Packers traded for Davis on Tuesday. He's nothing more than a handcuff.
1. Golden Tate: Ugh. I tried to hold on to Tate, but he was just so bad! Of course I drop him and he goes bonkers. I'm not endorsing him as a vital part of this offense, but he should be owned at least. Temper expectations, though.
2. Torrey Smith: There's a good chance Smith was dropped as well. With Colin Kaepernick slinging it in San Francisco, Smith should start to see his eruption games here and there. It doesn't get much riskier, though.
3. Kendall Wright: Well, look who it is. Kendall Wright finally got back from his bench- and injury-ridden vacation to the tune of eight receptions for 133 yards and a touchdown. For the record, I was high on Tajae Sharpe last week. I had the situation right but just picked the wrong guy. Oh well. Anyway, Wright is a PPR stash until we see him have a string of solid outings.
1. Charles Clay: Hey, I've seen you around here before. Clay has now recorded five catches in three straight games and seems to be benefiting from the absence of Sammy Watkins.
2. Jack Doyle: Deep league alert! Dwayne Allen may miss some time with an ankle injury, and Doyle was having moderate success even with Allen on the field. He's fairly touchdown dependent, but 75% of Tight Ends are anyway.
