Week 6: Player Upgrades

The passers, runners and receivers rising the short and long term fantasy football ranks This week's picks include Geno Smith, Eddie Lacy, Willis McGahee, Alshon Jeffery, and Austin Pettis.


Pryor looked the part Sunday night, throwing for 221 yards and tossing a pair of touchdowns in the most efficient start of his young career. He has yet to rush for a touchdown, but has 229 yards on the ground and 6.2 yards per carry. After a tough matchup with Kansas City this week, Pryor gets a bye week and then a string of NFC East opponents, making him a solid play through the middle of the Raiders' schedule.


Fred Davis hasn't materialized this season and the Redskins have made it clear they want Reed to become their number one tight end. The rookie appears to be ready for Sunday's game against Dallas after missing Washington's last game in Oakland with a thigh injury. That's good news because the Cowboys are giving up more fantasy points (13.4) to tight ends a week than anyone other than the Vikings or Dolphins (tied at 14). Furthermore, as the Redskins continue to develop Robert Griffin III into a more conventional drop back passer, expect him to look to Reed as a safety valve with regularity.
