Elite Terrell Suggs Jersey For this week. though, McGuire is the recommendation. McGuire is making the most of his opportunities by averaging 5.2 yards per carry, which is the eighth-best rate for running backs and almost a half yard more than Bilal Powell, the Jets’ 1A back. His ownership rate is below 15 percent and, based on his matchup this week, that needs to leap significantly.
If there’s any defense you want your skill position players facing, it’s the Patriots. New England has surrendered the most points to both opposing quarterbacks and running backs. In fact, the Patriots have allowed at least one running back to score double-digit points in each of their five games this year. Factor in that two quarterbacks also ran for 40 yards and it’s apparent that this defense is friendly to opposing rushing attacks. Don’t be shocked to see McGuire post 12 or more fantasy points despite not being the first option in the Jets’ backfield. — Daube
Schatz: Lamar Miller, RB, Texans. You might think it’s easy to rack up rushing totals against Cleveland because the Browns are always losing and their opponents are always killing the clock. But the Browns are actually third in run defense DVOA (compared to 31st in pass defense) and allow fewer fantasy points to running backs than the average defense this season.
Sando: Jared Goff, QB, Rams. Goff was my choice in Week 5 and I’ll stick with him heading into a road matchup with the Jaguars. His overall trajectory is up, but these are a couple of difficult matchups for him following a fast start.

While Orleans Darkwa found the end zone for the Giants on Sunday, Gallman stood out to me for the second straight week. It’s not a high-ceiling position as the Giants starting running back, but it feels like Gallman offers the most upside between his rushing skills and receiving ability to merit low-end, flex consideration in PPR leagues. He handled 16 total touches in Week 5.
