Week 6 continued to be full of surprises, including how legitimate the Cowboys look. Also the Chargers kept pace out west, and we saw our first tie of the season. Surely, fantasy owners will need an upgrade after the fallout of this week including what to do after Victor Cruz, Eddie Royal, Stevan Ridley, Darren Sproles were knocked out of their respected games, while Calvin Johnson and A.J. Green continue to wrestle with his nagging injuries. Let’s also not forget the need to upgrade a position due to underperforming stars or players stuck in slumps.

—Catanzaro certainly isn’t playing like a rookie, as he’s drilled every single attempt he’s been given. Of the top ten kickers, he’s the only one who is owned by under 10% in both ESPN and Yahoo leagues.
—We’re not sure if it’s because he’s a rookie or because he plays on the Cardinals, but we cannot figure out why no one is picking him up as his points are wasting away. However, he continues to be a weekly play and has great match ups all throughout his remaining schedule including Week 7 and 8 against the Raiders and Eagles respectively, who both are in the top 10 teams who give up the most fantasy points to kickers.
—What makes Catanzaro even more attractive is that he’s already passed his bye, so adding him to your roster eliminates any further reason to stream.
Consider Adding In: 10-team, 12-team and 14-team leagues for a permanent season-long starter and upgrade.
