- Sean Koerner – the number 1 in fantasy football season standings in three of the last five seasons – takes down his main fantasy football targets.
- Find out why these are his top three direct pickups at week 6 and how much you should spend to buy them.
By extending the deadline for giving up on fantasy football, Sean Koerner splits his views on the top three goals in week 6. It also includes how much of his Free Agency Acquisition Budget (FAAB) he would be willing to spend to acquire them. Players.
Alexander Mattison, WR, Vikings
Mattison they should is already present in all leagues, but since Wednesday night is available in 57% of Yahoo leagues.
Mattison has a built-in advantage: it offers RB3 / Flex value when Dalvin Cook is healthy, but shoots an RB1 when Cook is out.
Mattison is currently ranked RB4 for week 6 with Cook in doubt for Sunday. Mattison may end up being just a week-long rental, but it’s worth a good deal for its long-term value.
FAAB expenditure: 40-65%
Chase Claypool, WR, Steelers
Hopefully you have read my 5 levels of the week and followed my advice to hide Claypool as a potential “championship winner”.
Sunday benefited from Diontae Johnson who suffered an injury during the game, but the rookie earned all four of his touchdowns. Now it is impossible to get it for a reasonable price.
It is unclear how the Steelers will use Claypool if Johnson is able to return this week. But Claypool has definitely earned a role in the top two in this offense and I have currently classified him as my WR23 for week 6.
His range of results for the rest of the season goes from a WR1 to a WR3 / Flex.
FAAB expenditure: 25-50%
Hardman, WR, Chiefs Mecules
Hardman is the other wide receiver I recommended as a reserve for the “championship win”, but we couldn’t trust him in our lineups until he passed Demarcus Robinson in the routes he traveled or one of the Chiefs WR went down. . Well, Sammy Watkins’ hamstring injury opens the door for Hardman to break out in the upcoming games.
Claypool and Hardman have the talent and the opportunity to establish themselves as WR2 the rest of the season, but Claypool has the clearest way to get up and I would prefer that. However, you can get Hardman much cheaper.
FAAB expenditure: 15-25%
