Brett Hundley (GB) – He is going to be the hot pickup this week, with Aaron Rodgers most likely out for the rest of the fantasy season. He has the weapons, he has been in the system for 2 years now (this is his second) and he has the ability. He also has a juicy matchup in week 7 against the Saints at home.

Running Backs

Alfred Morris & Darren McFadden (Dal) – Obviously this hinges on Ezekiel Elliot facing the 6 game suspension. Who knows how the backfield situation will shake up if Elliot missed time so it is worth picking either one of these guys up. The upside is there.

Orleans Darkwa (NYG) – Big game on Sunday night against the NFL’s top rush defense.  He appears to be the best bet moving forward to lead the Giants backfield in carries. It hard to trust any Giants RB 100% but he’s worth a pickup.

Chris Ivory (Jax) – Ivory had by far his best game of the season (9 rec/74 yds 1 TD). While it might be a fluke, It showcased his involvement in the passing game. Fournette left the game with a leg injury but is supposedly good to go. Either way, it might be worth stashing Ivory as a handcuff just in case as the Jaguars have had one of the best rushing attacks in the NFL this season.

Wide Receivers

Ted Ginn Jr. (NO) – Boom or bust specialist who actually has a decent floor this season as a member of the Saints. Easy matchups over the next 3 weeks (GB, Chi, TB) make him a solid option even if it is only for a streaming play.

Robert Woods (LAC) – Another good streaming option as a BYE week fill in. 6 targets in each of the past 4 weeks for Woods and he has 5 catches in 3 of them. Great matchup in week 7 against a Cardinals defense that just gave up over 290 yards and 3 TDs to Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Tight Ends

Hunter Henry (LAC) – He was a trendy pick coming into the season but had a rough start (zero points in 2 out of the first 3 weeks). He has demonstrated some consistency over the past 3 weeks and as his role continues to expand the time might be right to go and grab him.

Streaming Defense

Bills D-  Fresh off a BYE, playing at home against an offense that might be starting the human turnover at QB, of course, I am talking about Ryan Fitzpatrick.
