Redskins wide receiver Jamison Crowder (Toni L. Sandys/ The Washington Post)

One New Hit this week, and below that is my Top 100 weekly player rankings. If you’re still not sure who to start, Tweet any lineup questions to @VoodooBrown.

New Hits for Week 6:
A “New Hit” will be a likely free agent that could be on the verge of a big week, and even regular production down the road. Some will be well known, some will be somewhat unproven & unknown. But it is much easier to scoop up a new hit BEFORE the waiver wire protocol hits on Tuesday, where you will have to wait your turn. Get on our New Hits before they blow up and get on your league’s radar.

 
crowderJamison Crowder, WR Redskins: He may be a rookie, but he’s not playing like one. With DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed suffering their seemingly perpetual injuries, Jamison Crowder has stepped up and become a pretty valuable slot guy for the Redskins. Now they don’t exactly have a high-octane offense, but I wouldn’t sleep on them completely. Even if/when their other receivers come back, he’ll still be a factor. He’s smaller, not lightning fast (4.56 40yd dash) — but he has pretty good quickness in the open field. He has good hands, catching 23/28 targets this year. He IS a rookie, but that seems to be less of a factor in today’s less physical NFL. Think of this as well: there’s always huge upside for a key contributor on a team that’s in the process of rebuilding its identity. If you need WR help during the bye weeks, he’s a pretty good option that could give you 10-18 points per week. If you’re in a PPR league, he becomes WAY more valuable.
Bottom Line: Grab him now if you have expendable players on your bench. This week is a tough matchup (@NY Jets), so temper expectations. But he could be a steal as the season develops.

 
And now for this Week’s player rankings…
It’s common sense, but if you have to decide between two players on this list, take the one that is ranked higher. If your player does not appear on this list, then he’s probably not very startable in most 10-12 team leagues. (Note, these rankings are based on PPR leagues)

Voodoo Brown
Voodoo Brown started playing fantasy football way back in 1994 — when you had to manually add up scores with the Monday edition of USA Today (yes, that’s how it was done). Since that time, he has amassed 16 championships and 7 runner-ups, with most of his success coming after 2003 (avg. participation of 2-3 leagues per year). These accomplishments are evidence that Voodoo steadily adjusts to the ebbs & flows of the ever-changing fantasy landscape. It’s a different game now than it was in 1994 — hell, even 2004. Rarely finishing as a doormat, Voodoo’s teams are always in the mix. If you want any roster or lineup feedback, you can message him at vb@voodoobrown.com, or hit him up on Facebook or Twitter (@VoodooBrown)
