Stat trends we love and hate to see: Projecting Mecole Hardman and what's up with Zach Ertz?

Matt Harmon and Dalton Del Don are here to talk about all the major fantasy trends heading into Week 6 on the latest episode of the Yahoo Fantasy Football Forecast!

Matt and Dalton dive into the stats and trends they love, including Chase Claypool’s rise through the Steelers ranks, Mecole Hardman’s opportunity with Sammy Watkins sidelined and Chase Edmonds increasing snap rate in the Cardinals offense.

Unfortunately, there are some trends they don’t like too, like Zach Ertz’s recent performances without Dallas Goedert, DeSean Washington or Alshon Jeffery, and rookie RBs Jonathan Taylor and Clyde Edwards-Helaire failure to meet their hype.

Finally, Matt and Dalton engage in their new segment titled “Who Got Shelled,” where they discuss a defense that got absolutely bombarded in Week 5 and a defense they expect to get demolished in Week 6.

Remember to stay tuned to the Yahoo Fantasy Football Forecast, which will now have FIVE new episodes per week!
