Start of the week: Alexander Mattison vs Atlanta Falcons
Mattison did his best Dalvin Cook impression last week, racking up 136 total yards and 18.1 (PPR) points on 23 touches. With Cook ruled OUT for week six, Mattison is poised to take over his three-down role that has netted him an average of 20.8 touches per game this season. I'd like Mattison this week even if he wasn't playing the Falcons. Fortunately for him, he is. Atlanta has surrendered THE MOST receptions, receiving yards and receiving TD's as well as an average of 29.3 PPG to opposing RB's this season. Fire him up.

Sit of the Week: Jerick Mckinnon vs Los Angeles Rams
With Mostert back in the fold, McKinnon was limited to just a 25% snap share in week five, which resulted in a grand total of five yards on three touches. When Mostert is active this season, McKinnon is averaging a 26.6 percent snap share, and touches the ball an average of just four times per game. He is clearly a talented player, and has made the most of his opportunities this season, but expecting him to continue scoring 13+ points in such a minimal role is like playing with fire.
