Fantasy Football Hot Takes: Stefon Diggs, Skylar Thompson, Ezekiel Elliott, DJ Moore (Week 6)

The sizzling takes had been super-duper highly spiced closing week, however I couldn’t style anything else in a while. None of them had been in particular shut, with the exception of for my prediction that Kelce would have a huge recreation on Monday night time as opposed to the Raiders. He didn’t put forth the amount I anticipated, however his 4 receiving touchdowns sign that my intestine intuition that he would pass thermonuclear was once proper.

Instead of reeling within the warmth index for Week 6 to chase a greater hit price, I’m turning the dial up! Picture Flint Lockwood in Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs perilously including an increasing number of orders to his meals climate system to provoke town people in Swallow Falls. Fantasy soccer content material can every so often be as dull as sardines, so I’m making five-alarm chili.

Stefon Diggs Erupts for 150 Yards and Two Touchdowns because the Bills Get Revenge at the Chiefs in a Game Total Over 64 Points

Most folks won’t ever disregard closing yr’s AFC Divisional playoff recreation between those two juggernaut squads. Buffalo pitched an excellent recreation on offense, however the Chiefs snuck into box target vary in below 13 seconds to ship it to time beyond regulation.

The well-known coin toss that modified the rule of thumb for playoff video games going ahead put Patrick Mahomes & Company at the box once more to win the sport with a Travis Kelce landing. It was once an rapid vintage.

Mahomes and Josh Allen are each and every impressive abilities and may have lots to end up within the overdue window on Sunday. The Bills are out for revenge, whilst the Chiefs wish to display they are able to do it once more with out Tyreek Hill.

The Chiefs protection deploys guy protection at the out of doors about 30% of the time (PFF), leaving their feisty corners on an island rather extra frequently than the league reasonable. Diggs has been probably the most best possible man-beating WRs within the NFL for years (RP) and is having a whale of a 2022 season up to now.

I’m forecasting an enormous efficiency for Diggs on this recreation as a part of a powerful victory for the Bills. I will be able to’t see any reason why to be expecting the Chiefs to gradual Allen down, whilst Mahomes will want to navigate via a top-5 protection with Kelce and a host of mediocre WRs. To their credit score, the Chiefs must nonetheless ranking sufficient issues to push this general properly over the making a bet line of 54.

Skylar Thompson Impresses in First NFL Start, Scores 20 Fantasy Points in Dolphins Double-Digit Win Over Vikings

Who? That’s proper, Skylar Thompson: the rookie from Kansas State who was once the backup’s backup till closing week. The Vikings protection has been completely underwhelming this season and has allowed an opposing passer score of 95.2 (twenty third). They also are thirtieth in power price this season at 24.6% (The thirty third Team).

All indicators level to the Mike McDaniel offense in Miami attacking the fringe with stretch run performs, adopted by way of bootleg play motion to get Hill and Jaylen Waddle in area for high-percentage passes to lend a hand the rookie out. Thompson is lovely athletic and will scramble for yards that Tua Tagovailoa and Teddy Bridgewater wouldn’t try to select up.

The Vikings were weirdly inconsistent on offense this season. The Miami protection isn’t precisely stout, however they’re well-coached and may just give Kirk Cousins suits with unique blitz applications and blended protection seems to be.

Minnesota is a three.5-point street favourite, without a doubt on account of the QB scenario in Miami. From what I noticed in faculty out of Thompson, at the side of his reps within the preseason and in reduction of Bridgewater closing week, it might no longer wonder me one bit if he has himself a a hit debut.

Ezekiel Elliott Rushes for over 100 Yards and Scores Twice in Cowboys’ Win Over Previously-Unbeaten Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles are the most efficient crew within the NFC. They additionally occur to be the closing ultimate unbeaten crew in all of the NFL. Aside from my very own private homerism, why would I stick my neck out for A: an RB who has but to have a 15-point delusion efficiency this season and B: a crew who really well might be rolling out Cooper Rush for the 5th recreation in a row?

It’s for the reason that Cowboys are constructed to overcome the Eagles. The two conferences between those fierce department competitors weren’t shut closing season. Dak Prescott threw for a blended 8 landing passes as opposed to Philly in 2021 and continues to be questionable to play after thumb surgical operation, however Dallas was once dominant at the flooring. The Cowboys averaged 165.5 dashing yards within the two video games, which unfolded the play-action move for Prescott.

The Eagles are 14th at delusion issues allowed to RBs this season. They were very staunch since Week 1, however that’s the sport I wish to spotlight as a precursor to this primetime showdown.

The Detroit Lions completely mauled the Eagles up entrance and rushed for 181 yards. Philly returned the want and received the sport at the heels of 216 dashing yards, however the Cowboys protection is solely a lot more potent than the sieve they’re operating available in the market from Detroit.

Dallas will appearance to punch Philly within the mouth with the run recreation, without reference to whether or not they’re helmed by way of Rush or Prescott. Elliott has no longer observed his commonplace proportion of goal-line carries this season, however I are expecting that may alternate in a large approach on Sunday night time.

DJ Moore Saves His Best Work for Matt Rhule’s Departure, Racks up 120 Yards and a Rare TD in Road Win over Reeling Rams

The unrelenting circulate of incompetent head coaches noticed its first casualty in 2022 with the lengthy past due firing of Rhule. Where the Panthers had been a minimum of first rate on protection all the way through Rhule’s tenure, the offense has been an abject crisis.

Baker Mayfield ranks lifeless closing in just about each QB metric and is out “at least a couple of weeks” with an ankle sprain suffered in Week 5. Steve Wilks, who was once unceremoniously disregarded by way of the Arizona Cardinals after one season in want of failed faculty trainer Kliff Kingsbury, takes the reins in Carolina having a look to salvage some wins within the wide-open NFC South department.

PJ Walker will get started as opposed to Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey and the Rams. Walker has already publicly mentioned that his process is “to put the ball in my playmakers’ hands.” Even if simply an anecdotal appeasement, delusion managers want higher alternatives for Christian McCaffrey and particularly Moore.

Moore has been a deep sadness in 2022, getting into Week 6 because the WR47 in PPR. He has however one landing and just one recreation with double-digit objectives.

This ultra-picante prediction is a big gamble on Moore’s immense skill. He entered this season with three-consecutive campaigns of greater than 1,100 receiving yards. The Carolina offense in each and every of those seasons leaned simply as closely on him and McCaffrey and was once differently horrible.

Moore is an out of this world skill that was once bridled by way of Rhule’s philosophy that noticed the Panthers offense run the third-fewest performs in keeping with recreation within the NFL. Very frequently, an period in-between regime will pass out within the first recreation with out the previous head trainer and let free with the playbook and carry out higher.

The Rams nonetheless have no longer proven me they are able to simply win video games the place they’re appreciated. They slightly beat the Falcons and received in a combat of futility with the Cardinals. All 3 losses were by way of double-digits. There may be the look-ahead element to the bye week adopted by way of any other assembly with the 49ers. All the indicators level to Carolina profitable an emotional exhale recreation after dropping their rainy blanket of a head trainer.
