Fantasy football in 2018 has been defined by a revival at Antworten

quarterback. Entering Week 7 , the position is 12 to 15 players deep with quality starters along with a handful of others who can deliver above-average numbers, depending on the matchup.There are also those who came into the season expecting to put up monster numbers but haven’t.There will be more of the same at the position this week, as well as some under-the-radar backs who need to be in most lineups and a receiver who has worked his way into WR2 status.START: Sony Michel, RB, Patriots: He’s arrived to borderline RB1 status. In his past three games, Michel is averaging 105.1 yards on a solid 4.7 yards per carry average while scoring four touchdowns. By averaging 22.1 carries a game, Michel has shattered the longtime fear of fantasy owners committing to Patriots running backs. Even against a Bears defense that is second only to the Ravens in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing running backs, Michel belongs in most lineups.SIT: Deshaun Watson, QB, Texans: Watson looks like a quarterback with only 13 games of experience under his belt. In his past two starts, Watson has thrown three interceptions and has led the offense to only two drives that resulted in touchdowns. A lot of his issues come from the fact Houston’s running game averages just 3.9 yards per carry and has only one rushing touchdown from its backs (Watson has the only other rushing TD), a problem that will not be resolved on the road against a Jaguars D that is fourth in fewest fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks. Better days lie ahead for Watson, but Sunday won’t be one of them.START: John Brown, WR, Ravens: Nothing says “rebound” like facing the Saints pass defense that is the most fantasy-friendly unit against opposing receivers. Brown had only three targets last week against the Titans but should easily return to the nearly nine targets per game he had before that. New Orleans has given up 21 passes of at least 20 yards, which plays well for Brown, who had at least one catch for better than 20 yards in each game prior last week. Expect at least 2-3 shots up top to Brown, who’ll make the most of the opportunities.SIT: Dalvin Cook, RB, Vikings: Although Cook practiced Wednesday without a hitch, the weekly saga continues for owners of Cook. He has only 10 touches over the last four games and even if he does get on the field, there’s no guarantee how many touches he’ll see. Cook could miss out on a Jets defense that is a modest 17th against the run, which means Latavius Murray owners should be ready to plug him in as either an RB2 or flex if Cook is either limited or completely unavailable.START: Marquise Goodwin, WR, 49ers: Finally healthy Jimmie Ward Jersey , Goodwin torched the Packers for 126 yards and a pair of touchdowns on just four catches. The Rams secondary has struggled without injured All-Pro corner Aqib Talib, having allowed nine touchdown passes in the last four games. Expect Goodwin — who has just 14 targets all season — to approach double digits in a game where the 49ers will likely be playing catch-up. Niners quarterback C.J. Beathard has thrown two touchdown passes in three straight games and is likely to keep that streak if he gets Goodwin involved from the outset.SIT: Jordan Howard, RB, Bears: Howard has just one touchdown thus far and has become almost nonexistent in the Chicago passing game. Tarik Cohen continues to eat away into his snaps and Howard’s 3.5 yards per carry only makes using him tougher. Even though the Patriots are a middle of the road run defense (18th overall), Howard probably deserves to be benched, especially in PPR formats.START: C.J. Uzomah, TE, Bengals: Uzomah is a big, athletic target who has caught eight of the nine passes thrown in his direction the past two games and gets a chance to make his fantasy mark against a Chiefs defense that is 30th in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing tight ends. Kansas City last in passing yards allowed, and if they become too focused on stopping receivers A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd, Uzomah will have the middle of the field to himself for much of Sunday night. He’s likely available in most leagues.SIT: Evan Engram, TE, Giants: Everything is pointing in the direction of Engram returning to the lineup but he’s not a lock and with the G-Men playing on Monday night, fantasy owners will be taking a high risk in assuming the potential TE1 will be on the field. Engram has an impressive 77 percent catch rate and should develop into a must-start performer; however, that development might be best served until next week for fantasy owners.START: Josh Gordon, WR, Patriots: The Bears secondary gives up catches to opposing receivers at a 71 percent rate. Gordon’s workload has increased with each game, and it’s not a stretch to envision him getting double-digit targets on Sunday. This has a good chance of being Gordon’s best fantasy game since arriving to New England.SIT: Lamar Miller, RB, Texans: Even if it wasn’t against the Jaguars, Miller merits time on the bench, managing 105 yards on 39 carries in the last three games, a 2.7 yards per carry average. D’Onta Foreman is one to two weeks away, so Miller’s owners should consider stashing Foreman if possible. After an exciting rookie season, reality has begun to set in for second-year corner Ahkello Witherspoon. Most fans imagined that under the tutelage of veteran corner Richard Sherman Dwight Clark Color Rush Jersey , Witherspoon would improve this year — but the former Colorado defensive back has regressed. Disappointing performances and a benching later, Witherspoon continued to have a tough season against the Giants on Monday Night Football last week. To add to his on-field struggles, 49ers’ head coach Kyle Shanahan was also not happy with Witherspoon’s actions after multiple completions.When asked about his opinion on Witherspoon’s negative gestures, Shanahan added “Man up. Don’t put that on tape. We’ll deal with it when we come in.”The 49ers’ starting corner was also asked about his antics, he chimed in, “I was just mad at myself for allowing a touchdown. Can’t do that,” Witherspoon said. “I know that, playing corner, I know I got to be better than that, and it’s something I got to improve on.”It sure was a rough outing for Witherspoon, who was targeted nine times, giving up two catches and two penalties — one was a 16-yard penalty that was accepted, the other was declined. On numerous occasions, Giants’ quarterback Eli Manning should have hit the open receiver, but wasn’t able to take advantage. On the Giants’ first-quarter touchdown, wideout Odell Beckham Jr. is lined up in the slot and the 49ers’ employ a zone defense. While Witherspoon doesn’t line up across from Beckham Jr. before the snap, there’s no 49ers’ defender that follows the Giants’ best wideout into the end zone. Beckham Jr. finds the soft spot behind three 49ers’ defenders and makes an easy touchdown catch. On this play, Witherspoon is in no-man’s land, defending an area with no receivers even close. It is inexcusable for the second-year corner to not try and stay with Beckham Jr and make a play on the ball. Later in the second frame, Witherspoon’s now defending Giants’ wide receiver Bennie Fowler, who runs a dig route. The ex-Colorado cornerback is in good position in this play, as Manning throws low for an incompletion. Much better defense here by Witherspoon against the Giants’ fourth receiving option.Two plays later, Witherspoon is now lined up across from the dangerous wideout Sterling Shepard. At the top of the route, Witherspoon holds Shepard and is flagged for illegal contact. However, the Giants declined the penalty as Sherman was flagged for defensive pass interference on the other side of the field. On third down , the 49ers have to get off the field and can’t afford these penalties in the future.Now in the third quarter, Witherspoon is defending Beckham Jr in one-on-one coverage, with safety help over the top. The 49ers’ defender does an excellent job staying step for step with the speedy ex-LSU product, as Manning has to force a difficult throw in the back of the end zone for an incompletion.On the next play, Witherspoon is in the same spot, but 49ers’ safety Antone Exum Jr. is shading the other side of the field. The 49ers’ second-year corner has to recognize that the help won’t get to him and try to stay with Beckham Jr. The Giants’ superstar blows by Witherspoon, allowing for an easy 20-yard touchdown reception. Witherspoon has to do a better job of pressing Beckham Jr. on this play. Not holding him at the line of scrimmage, allows Beckham Jr. to make his move and get free. To see how it’s done, look at the top of the screen, as Sherman presses Shepard.Not only did Witherspoon have poor coverage on the play, he immediately throws up his hands in disgust, trying to blame Exum Jr. for not getting over the top quickly enough. For a young corner in the NFL, it’s inexcusable to start showing antics on the field after a blown coverage. Witherspoon has to just move onto the next play, not showing his frustration on the field for the world to see.In the final frame, Witherspoon is once again on a tough assignment, matched up against Beckham Jr. The ex-Tiger puts a double move on Witherspoon and is able to create 10 yards of separation. A poor and under-thrown ball from Manning allows Witherspoon to get back in the picture and make the deflection. A properly thrown ball and that’s six for the Giants. Witherspoon can’t be so aggressive to bite on the underneath route. In late-game situations, Witherspoon has to have better situational awareness. On 2nd-and-20, the 49ers have to do everything possible to get off the field and not earn any drive-extending penalties. While it seems ticky-tack, Witherspoon was called for a 16-yard defensive pass interference, that was brutal. It kept the drive alive and allowed for the Giants to win the game a few plays later. The 49ers’ second-year corner has to be more aware of the magnitude of the game and the receiver he’s covering. There continue to be flashes of greatness from the former Buffalo, but it’s perplexing why Witherspoon doesn’t put it all together for 60 minutes. His defensive game seems to be more of a roller coaster this season. Sherman has been phenomenal locking down one corner spot, but the 49ers are bleeding yards on the opposite side of the field. Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh better find the band-aid to fix this problem soon.
