Fantasy Football: Add

  1. Nick Chubb, RB, Browns
    Nick Chubb must be added in all formats in the wake of the Browns trading for Carlos Hyde. Chubb, owned in just 20 percent of ESPN leagues, will now be Cleveland's starter.

  2. Doug Martin, RB, Raiders
    Marshawn Lynch will miss at least a month with a groin injury, so Doug Martin will be Oakland's new starting running back.

  3. Tre'Quan Smith, WR, Saints
    Tre'Quan Smith is a promising rookie. He happened to catch Drew Brees' record-setting pass Monday night, but now he'll get an increase in targets. That's because Ted Ginn is out for the year. Smith will see more targets from Drew Brees, and he needs to be owned in all formats.

  4. Chris Godwin, WR, Buccaneers
    Chris Godwin is a tremendous talent, and he's owned in fewer than 40 percent of ESPN leagues. He's had some big games this year, and that continued in Week 6, as he saw nine targets. He caught six of them for 56 yards and a touchdown. He's scored all but one week this year, which was the disastrous blowout loss at Chicago. Jameis Winston is playing well, so Godwin must be owned.

  5. C.J. Uzomah, TE, Bengals
    C.J. Uzomah is worth picking up if you need a tight end. He caught six passes for 54 yards against the Steelers, and he has another nice matchup in Week 7.

Fantasy Football: Buy Low

Stefon Diggs, WR, Vikings
Stefon Diggs had a miserable game with three catches for 33 yards. However, he was battling Patrick Peterson. He'll rebound soon with easier matchups on the horizon.

Will Fuller, WR, Texans
Will Fuller hasn't done much recently because he's been banged up. He'll be healthier soon, so this would be a nice time so buy low on him.

David Johnson, RB, Cardinals
David Johnson has been a huge disappointment this year, but that may have had something to do with Mike McCoy failing to use him as a receiver out of the backfield. McCoy has been fired, thankfully. There's no guarantee Byron Leftwich will be better, but he can't be worse for Johnson's usage.

Kerryon Johnson, RB, Lions
Kerryon Johnson and LeGarrette Blount are splitting carries evenly for some reason. I can't imagine that continuing for much longer. The Lions just can't be that stupid, right?

Fantasy Football: Sell High

Tyrell Williams, WR, Chargers
Tyrell Williams caught three passes for 118 yards and two touchdowns, so sell him high. One touchdown shouldn't have counted because the officials missed an obvious false start. Williams saw just four targets.

Jameis Winston, QB, Buccaneers
Jameis Winston had a dream matchup against the Falcons. His schedule will get more difficult, so sell high on his near-400 yards and four touchdowns.

Fantasy Football: Ignore

Cole Beasley, WR, Cowboys
Cole Beasley caught nine passes for 101 yards and two touchdowns, but I wouldn't add him. He had a dream matchup, as the Jaguars were missing their slot corner.

Albert Wilson, WR, Dolphins
Albert Wilson had a monstrous day, catching six of his nine targets for 155 yards and two touchdowns. However, if you exclude the two long touchdowns, which occurred because the Bears were wilting in 100-degree heat and humidity, Wilson caught just four balls for 37 yards and no scores. Wilson will be an overrated fantasy signing this week. You can add him if you want, and if you do, I would trade him right away.

Fantasy Football: Drop

Ted Ginn, WR, Saints
Ted Ginn is out for the year with a knee injury.

Chris Hogan, WR, Patriots
Chris Hogan's stat lines in six games: 1-11, 3-42-2, 3-31, 1-25, 3-34, 4-78. Hogan's two touchdowns in Jacksonville look very fluky, and with Julian Edelman back, Hogan should be dropped in all leagues.

Kenny Stills, WR, Dolphins
Kenny Stills hasn't caught more than three passes since Week 1 this season, and he's topped 40 yards more than once. The Dolphins simply have too many viable targets to go around.
