Looking to prepare early for your fantasy football draft this season??? We have you covered with the lineups.com official fantasy football rankings. You can also find all fantasy football stats,DFS projections, and fantasy football projections on our site. Don’t be the unprepared guy in your league.

I play in a 12 man half PPR league with a low number of bench positions. So, adjust according to your league and bench positions.

Who to Drop

Baker Mayfield (CLE): vs SEA – 69.5% Rostered
Mayfield has certainly not lived up to expectations this season. After a busy offseason acquiring big names like Kareem Hunt and Odell Beckham Jr, Mayfield was expected to pop. But the lack of offensive line talent has burst Baker’s bubble. Completing only 55.9% of passes so far this year with an abysmal Quarterback rating of 68.5, the struggle will continue if the Browns do not address this offensive line. The Browns are also facing a tough schedule ahead, including a bye week in Week seven. Mayfield is a safe drop to the waiver wire.

LeSean McCoy (KC): vs TEX – 86.2% Rostered
With Damien Williams returning to the lineup and taking over the lead back role in this Kansas City offense, McCoy is expected to see less of the field. After fumbling in the game this past Sunday against the Colts McCoy didn’t see any carries at all with Williams back; very worrisome for the veteran running back in his 11th season. Damien Williams also sees a majority of the rushing and passing work in the offense. McCoy will have a role, but it will be very limited.

Rashaad Penny (SEA): vs CLE – 56.2% Rostered
Chris Carson has taken over the workhorse role in the Seahawks’ run first offense. Getting 27 carries in their win against the Rams, Penny only saw 6 carries on 16% of the offensive snaps after coming back from injury. Pete Carrol has built up trust in Carson while Penny was out with injury.

Delanie Walker (TEN): vs DEN – 86.7% Rostered
Walker started this season red hot against the Browns catching five of six targets getting 55 yards and two touchdowns. But, Walker has failed to reach the end zone since. Averaging just 47% of the snaps on offense Walker is mostly used as a blocker in the offense. Only two catches in the past two weeks for a total of 14 yards. You may be better off streaming at the position depending on your

On the Trade Block

Mecole Hardman (KC): vs TEX – 44.3% Rostered
After getting a limited practice in on Wednesday Tyreek Hill seems to be slated to make his return this Sunday against the Texans. With Hill coming back into his role Hardman looks like he may start to compete with Pringle for snaps and once Sammy Watkins comes back is expected to see less of the field going forward.

Who to Pick Up For Week 6 Bye Replacement

Malcolm Brown (LAR): vs SF – 25.6% Rostered
Todd Gurley has been announced as doubtful for the Sunday matchup against the 49ers. Although the 49ers have a stout run defense, ranking number 2 on the season behind the Eagles, Brown will be stepping into a full workload in the Ram’s offense. Brown is the clear replacement piece for this backfield behind Gurley seeing 26 carries so far this season averaging 4.2 yards per carry. Brown is a solid flex option going into Week six.

Mohammed Sanu (ATL): vs ARI – 49.2% Rostered
Sanu is currently on pace to get 899 yards on 92.8 catches, which would top his career-high in both yardage and receptions. His quarterback is on pace to have a career year in attempts, accuracy, and yardage. The Cardinals have allowed the seventh-most passing yards and the fourth most passing touchdowns this season.

Adrian Peterson (WAS): vs MIA – 50.7% Rostered
The Dolphins have surrendered the fifth-most yards this season to opposing running backs; giving up an average of 140.6 rushing yards per game. The Dolphins have also surrendered an average of 29.6 rushing attempts to opposing offenses, giving Peterson plenty to work with this week to be a viable starting option off the waiver wire.

Kirk Cousins (MIN): vs PHI – 26.6% Rostered
Although Kirk Cousins has struggled so far this season, he faces a vulnerable Philadelphia secondary who have multiple secondary players out with injuries. Cousins seemed to gain some confidence after last week’s win against the Giants, but more importantly him has seemed to rekindle the connection between he and receiver Adam Thielan.

Hunter Henry (LAC): vs PIT – 48.7% Rostered
Hunter Henry, who was hurt in the Week one matchup against the Colts, was a limited participant in Wednesday and Thursday’s practice. Picking up Henry this close to his return is a steal off the waiver wire. Coming into this season Henry was widely considered to be a top 6 tight end. Henry was on the field for 92% of the snaps in week one. He is a dynamic playmaker and must be rostered in every league.
