Trey Flowers' elite all-around showing boosts Detroit’s defensive line in dominating win
ALLEN PARK -- The Detroit Lions made some critical defensive adjustments in Sunday’s win against the Jacksonville Jaguars. While Matt Patricia’s defensive adjustments deserve credit, it’s hard to look past what Trey Flowers accomplished in Jacksonville.

It was even better against the run, with Detroit’s league-worst run defense holding Jacksonville to just 44 yards on the ground. Heading into the Week 6 matchup, Flowers said he thought the pass rush would improve once the Lions stopped the run.mlive.com

RB Mike Davis, Carolina Panthers: You likely hadn’t heard of Mike Davis prior to this week, but due to the high ankle sprain suffered by McCaffrey on Sunday, Davis is this week’s top waiver wire add. However, fantasy football is all about opportunity, and Davis is likely to get a lot of that over the next month. Gage was targeted another nine times in Week 2, catching six of those passes for 46 yards and a touchdown.detroit.cbslocal.com

(AP Photo/Wade Payne)NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Titans know good teams win ugly games, and being 2-0 for the first time in 12 years has a way of making any victory look much prettier.

If your season-long search for a tight end has continued into the fantasy postseason, then Gesicki might just be your answer.detroit.cbslocal.com

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 6 Pickups: Despite Rudolph Injury, Diontae Johnson A Solid WR Option
Christian McCaffrey, Aaron Jones and Will Fuller finished with around 45 fantasy points each, while guys such as DJ Chark (32 points), Josh Jacobs (28 points) and Michael Gallup (21 points) exploded onto the fantasy scene with massive outings. Minshew has registered at least 16 fantasy points in every game this season, a remarkable feat for a sixth-round pick that was nowhere near the fantasy radar just a month ago. Brissett entered Week 5 having registered at least 16.5 fantasy points in each of Indys first four games, and topped the 20-point mark in two of those contests. With the Colts entering their bye week, fantasy owners may unload Brissett, giving you the opportunity to snag the 26-year-old quarterback.
