After five weeks Color Rush Takkarist McKinley Jersey , fantasy owners of cks, while those who gambled on Austin Ekeler and Tyler Boyd feel as if their fantasy IQs went up sharply.Week 6 constitutes a make-or-break moment for a host of players who have yet to live up to their preseason projections, along with those labeled as breakouts who are still digging to see the light of the expectations placed among them.START: Jameis Winston, QB, Buccaneers: Making his first start of the season, Winston gets a plum matchup against a Falcons secondary that has been strafed for 12 touchdown passes and is 28th in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks. Winston was 16 of 20 for 145 yards and a touchdown after mopping up for Ryan Fitzpatrick in a loss at the Bears. He won’t waste time getting the ball downfield to Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson, so plug him in and watch him make up for lost time.SIT: Jared Goff, QB, Rams: Receivers Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp both remain in concussion protocol and while it’s possible both will play, the matchup at the Broncos is filled with hurdles. Goff has been just OK on the road, averaging a modest 18 fantasy points in his first two road games compared to the 33 PPG he has averaged in three games in Los Angeles. Facing the Denver pass rush is also an issue, but Mother Nature will be the biggest reason to sit Goff, as the forecast Sunday calls for snow flurries and temperatures in the mid- to upper-20s at kickoff.START: James White, RB, Patriots: Even with Julian Edelman back and Josh Gordon continuing to be added into the flow of the passing game, White remains a great play for the potential Sunday night slugfest against the Chiefs. In the last two games, White has 18 catches for 145 yards and two touchdowns and will maintain that type of production against a Kansas City defense that allows seven catches and 90 yards per game to opposing running backs. In PPR formats, White is a borderline RB1 this week.SIT: Adrian Peterson, RB, Redskins: The injuries (ankle, knee Authentic Takkarist McKinley Jersey , shoulder) are piling up on Peterson, who had only six yards on four carries in the Monday night loss at New Orleans. The Panthers have the sixth-best run defense in the league and it’s unlikely the Redskins will give him a full workload. If Peterson is limited, it will be a mild disappointment for those who’ve used him as a sneaky good pass catcher in PPR formats.START: Tyler Boyd, WR, Bengals: Only the Buccaneers and Saints allow more fantasy points per game to opposing receivers than the Steelers, who can no longer put the bulk of their focus solely on A.J. Green. Boyd has caught nearly 70 percent of his targets and has seven catches of better than 20 yards, making him an excellent WR2 play against a Pittsburgh pass defense that has given up 13 touchdown passes and 21 completions of better than 20 yards.SIT: Amari Cooper, WR, Raiders: He’s become too inconsistent, drawing only one target in last week’s loss to the Chargers. Whatever the cause of the disconnect between him and quarterback Derek Carr, Cooper’s down-up-down-up-down act is already wearing thin with his fantasy owners. The Seahawks secondary is no longer the feared unit it once was, but they are still ninth in the league in passing yards allowed per game and are second with nine interceptions. Maybe Cooper continues his yo-yo trend, but there’s little motivation to risk a spot in the lineup for it.START: Chester Rogers, WR, Colts: With T.Y. Hilton doubtful, Rogers again plays the role of top wideout for Indianapolis, who faces a Jets team that is 26th in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing receivers. This should play well for Rogers, who was targeted 11 times in each of the last two games. He has yet to score a touchdown this season yet the high volume of targets from Andrew Luck only increases the chances of him finally visiting the end zone.SIT: Greg Olsen, TE, Panthers: Yes, he’s slated to play against the Redskins on Sunday. However Takkarist McKinley Jersey Boys , there is no indication as to how much he’ll be used. Either way, Olsen will need this game to get back into form. Washington is a modest 17th in fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends, so there’s no need to feel that Olsen is missing a must-start opportunity. Olsen owners will be best off using this game as a gauge to how far along he is before becoming a viable fantasy starter once again.START: Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals: After failing to throw multiple touchdown passes for the first time this year in last week’s loss to the Dolphins, Dalton will make up for lost chances against the Steelers, who are 31st in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks. Dalton is averaging a solid 23 fantasy points per game and will exceed that number facing a defense that’s allowing 320.4 passing yards and nearly three touchdown passes per contest.SIT: Dion Lewis, RB, Titans: Since scoring 16 fantasy points in Week 1, Lewis has a combined 15 FP in the last four games. The Titans have been unable to effectively utilize Lewis, who has only 60 rushing yards on 25 attempts over his last three games. Don’t expect those numbers to suddenly trend upward against a Ravens defense that is seventh in the league in rushing yards allowed and has given up only two rushing touchdowns all season.___ And don’t say both."There’s little doubt that the Falcons need to address the defensive line in the draft. While some may argue that offensive tackle and corner could be taken early, the majority of pundits and fans agree the team needs to improve the defensive line first and foremost. The question, though, is which of the two key positions is more important? We’ve seen the team linked to guys like Ed Oliver and Christian Wilkins and even Dexter Lawrence. Yet, it seems like there’s also a big need at defensive end, where a player like Brian Burns or Montez Sweat could make a lot of sense.Let’s take a look at how the Falcons look at each position.Defensive TackleRight now, the Falcons have several players lined up to play defensive tackle in 2019. Grady Jarrett is a Pro Bowl-quality starter who will likely get an extension in the very near future. Next to him, though, there’s a big question mark. Last year’s third-round pick — Deadrin Senat — showed great promise, particularly as a run stopper. He also showed some ability to get to the QB, though that’s not likely a role the team sees him in for the long term. Then there’s Jack Crawford Cheap Takkarist McKinley Jersey , who was arguably one of the nicest surprises of the 2018 season. He wound up starting 11 games and netted six sacks on the season — the same number as Grady Jarrett. He may not be what the team has in mind for a long-term starter to pair with Grady, but he’s fantastic in his current role. The depth at DT is rounded out with guys like Michael Bennett (no, not that one) and Justin Zimmer. Neither of these guys projects to be anything more than a rotational piece at best.The team has some options here, but adding another top-tier DT would certainly not be a problem. Someone like Ed Oliver could give the Falcons a devastating 1-2 punch in the middle of the defensive line. However, you could also make the argument that the Falcons could simply address the depth of this position and be fine in 2019.Defensive EndThe Falcons currently have just three guys who will potentially line up at defensive end in 2019. Takkarist McKinley is going into his third year and is a definite starter for 2019. The team (and fans) are hoping he makes the third-year jump that many pass rushers do. On the opposite side, lightning rod Vic Beasley is back on his fifth-year option with most fans wishing he weren’t. Barring some sort of revelation in 2019, it seems very possible Vic is in his last year with the team. After them, Steven Means is the lone defensive end on the roster, though he did show some promise in limited snaps last year.In a pinch, Jack Crawford could potentially slide over to play defensive end, though he seemed far more successful rushing from the interior. As it stands, the team has very little depth at the position after Bruce Irvin was allowed to walk and the team parted ways with Brooks Reed. Yet, with both Beasley and McKinley the likely starters in 2019, it would seem the team is banking on development with Quinn back at defensive coordinator. You could easily argue they should look to supplant Beasley this year, but right now, it looks like they’re in the need for depth as much as anything.Final thoughtsWith the Falcons having a dismal pass rush in 2018, it’s hard to argue against anyone who could offer pass rushing help in this draft class. Whether that’s from the interior or from the edge seems like splitting hairs at this point. Yet, there are legitimate questions about the future of each position and what the best use of our first-round pick will be. Let us know which position you think is the bigger need in our poll below.
