3 Breakout Players From Fantasy Football Week 6 To Leave On Waivers

Peyton Barber


Barber rushed 13 times for 82 yards and had 4 receptions for 24 yards with a touchdown against the Falcons.  With 16.6 points in Yahoo! leagues Barber outweighed his entire combined pre-week 6 season production of 16.1 points.  Barber has been handed an average of 12.6 touches a game including week 6.  He has struggled to maintain efficiency and it would be a surprise to see him replicate this production moving forward.  In 14 player leagues Barber is a possible flex but will not be reliable enough for smaller leagues.

Beasley netted 22.34 points in Yahoo! leagues during week 6 against the vaunted Jaguars defense. With 11 targets, over 100 receiving yards and two 2 touchdowns, Beasley will still have Dak Prescott throwing to him in week 7 and increased attention from the Washington secondary.  Beasley only scored a combined total of 19.3 points in the 5 previous games of the season.  He may score in week 7 but would be nothing more than a dart shot until he demonstrates consistency and has a bye coming up in week 8.  Beasley should be left on waivers in all leagues.

Michael Crabtree


Michael Crabtree is at best a WR3 in PPR leagues only. He should be ignored in standard leagues despite enjoying his best performance of the year in week 6.  Crabtree benefits from 9.16 targets per game yet has exceeded 70 yards only in week 6.  The Ravens are a defensive team first and incorporate a variety of weapons on offense including a strong run game and any individual receiver cannot be counted on to score on a weekly basis.  Crabtree has volume but nothing more.
