Under The Radar
This week on under the radar it’s all about Fantasy Football Stash Targets In Week five to keep an eye on for the future.
Week on week the Eagles are finding more ways to get Gainwell involved with this offence through not just rushing but the pass game too. This makes Sanders perfect as one of my Fantasy Football Stash Targets In Week five.
The snap share for now has stuck around the 35% share but Gainwell is proving to be the more productive back between himself and Miles Sanders. Sanders started the season well but as Gainwell has shown he can produce, the ball going his was has reduced.
Week one saw Sanders make 15 rush attempts for an average of 4.93 yards. This past week however we saw the attempts drop to 7 with an average of 1.86 yards per attempt. Targets have also reduced from 5 targets to 3 targets.
Compare that with Gainwell, yes he started the season with 9 rushes but his average yards per carry has gone from 4.11 yards in week one to 10.33 last week. Then add on Gainwell’s targets, going from 3 in week one to 8 in week 4. Oh and don’t forget Gainwell has 2 TD’s compared to Sanders 0.
The further down the road we go the more I see Gainwell further improving each week. He may have some harder opposition in the next few weeks but once we get to week 12 on, the Eagles have a more favourable matchups leading up to and including the fantasy playoffs.
Exactly the type of player you want to stash away ready for when he explodes.
Last week I had Emmanuel Sanders in this article. Because of this I also want to throw Knox into this article too. The Bills offence is ticking on all cylinders at the moment and it would be wise to stash Knox as one of my Fantasy Football Stash Targets In Week five.
The snap share has stayed steady for Knox, going around the 80% mark. The targets however, have increased from getting 4 targets in week 1 to 8 targets in week 4. On top of all that, Knox has scored 4 TD’s in the last 3 games.
Week 4 saw Knox finish second in the team in targets and was also one of the main targets in the red zone. In fact, Knox leads the Bills players as the highest targeted player in the Redzone with 6 in 4 games.
Although going forward the target share won’t always be there for Knox, the quality of the player is still there. This is helping the Bills coaching staff, along with Josh Allen, to really start trusting Knox a whole lot more. This, in turn, will get him more involved in the passing attack.
If you can go get both of these players then I would. You can always stash them on your roster to help with bye weeks, but having them on your roster you will start to see the difference in player from last year to this.
That’s it Rush Nation, two more Fantasy Football Stash Targets In Week five for you to keep an eye on. Make sure you look out for my future and previous articles for this series.
Until then, Keep Rushing!
