FRAUD – Vikings Defense
This defense stinks so bad that the Dallas Cowboys defense came away feeling better about themselves after Week 6. Or at least feeling the same way, after Dallas' Monday Night Football meltdown. The Vikings now lead the NFL in total points given up at 192 across six games. Even at home the Vikings have looked brutal on defense. They’ve given up 43, 40 and 31 points in Minnesota, respectively, and the Vikings own the third worst pass defense and the ninth worst rush defense to boot. This Vikings defense is also tied for third worst in takeaways this season, while the offense is tied for the lead in giveaways. Overall, this defense has gone from one of the best to one of the worst in just a three-year span.
FRAUD – Baker Mayfield
It’s clear Baker Mayfield isn't an NFL quarterback who can deal with pressure. When the Browns step up in class, they have to rely on other things to get wins. The Browns, however don’t have that type of defense right now and the offense has dealt with injuries to the run game. Baker needs to figure it out real quick, or Cleveland will be calling for a new QB in the dog pound before we know it. Baker can beat the bad teams, sure, but not the good teams. It’s clear what his ceiling is right now - about 5 feet, 10 inches.
FRAUD – Patriots Skill Players
Cam Newton aside, this Patriots running back & wide receiver depth chart is terrible. No wonder why Tom Brady wanted out of New England. Outside of Julian Edelman, who has seemingly run his course in this league, this team has nobody that Newton can count on. The Patriots offense has indeed become rather pedestrian over the past two years. Does New Engald even have a player anyone is high on right now outside Newton on offense? Youngsters N'Keal Harry and Damien Harris each posted duds in Week 6 against a mediocre-at-best Broncos defense. The struggle is real in Foxboro right now.
FRAUD – David Montgomery
This guy has killed fantasy owners and DFS players alike in 2020, and he has also put his team behind the chains all season long. Although Montgomery averages just 3.1 yards per carry, he still has the 13th most touches for any running back in the league. He is grouped in with Frank Gore and Joshua Kelley for yards per rush, and he has just one touchdown this year. Even in "home run spots" he has failed to deliver even a decent day. Chicago thought they had a nice running back, but he’s been anything but that.
GOD – Ryan Tannehill
Give this dude credit. Ryan Tannehill has put this offense on his back when needed. It seemed as if it was all on the legs and shoulders of Derrick Henry in Week 6, sure, but Tannehill has loomed large this season week in and week out. This would be an MVP-type season if it was 1992, but it’s 2020. Tannehill shouldn’t be overlooked for any awards this season, though, and when you talk cleanest quarterbacks on the season Tannehill has to be mentioned. He is a force to be reckoned with, in real life and in fantasy.
GOD – Justin Jefferson
Let’s keep it real here. Justin Jefferson is going to be one of the best wide receivers in the game in a very short amount of time. Case in point: Stefon Diggs departs before the 2020 and Jefferson steps in as the team’s number option right now in less than a month. The LSU standout has had three 100+ yard games in his last four outings. Not only does he gobble up the yards, but he is also moving the chains for this Vikings offense as a reliable possession receiver and as a deep threat. Jefferson has 22 first downs to his credit on the season, and for a guy who was a clear miss for most fantasy football league managers, it’s now clear that he should’ve been higher on our draft boards. I’m sure he will be in the top 10 wide receivers taken next year if he stays healthy and continues his current track to stardom.
GOD – Ronald Jones II
This guy has been getting it done on the ground for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers while they get healthy in the passing game. Jones has rushed for 330 yards in his last three games with two touchdowns. It was once thought by many that Jones could play second fiddle to Leonard Fournette, but that won’t be the case this season any longer. Jones is being used in the running and the passing game right now, and he has proved critical for Tampa Bay while Chris Godwin & Co get healthy. "Rojo" has given fantasy owners a big boost the last three weeks too, and he should be counted on from here on out.
GOD – Myles Gaskin
Who? Yes, Myles Gaskin, that's who. He plays for the Miami Dolphins and was a seventh-round draft pick from Washington. I know it doesn't sound like much, but you should check this guy out. Let’s be real about Gaskin here - this is the perfect situation for a guy like him with something to prove. He’s not a running back by trade, but a converted wide receiver, and he can provide quality production in both areas of the field though and complicate things for opposing defenses. Gaskin hasn’t provided his fantasy owners with touchdowns, yet, but a safe floor is what Gaskin provides. If you need 15 fantasy points, Gaskin is your guy. Will that change when Fitzpatrick hands the keys to Tua? That remains to be seen. For now, Gaskin is doing all he can to help this team win games, as Miami is off to a surprising 3-3 start.
