Week 6 Fantasy Football Rankings (2018)

Lady Fantasy is a cruel yet sultry beast! For some owners, she couldn’t be more generous, handing out TDs and Ws while making life more vibrant. Food tastes better. Conversations with coworkers are surprisingly bearable. Even the bird who won’t stop shitting on your car reminds you of the dumps you’ve taken on your leaguemates faces.

For others, every flex decision goes wrong. You’re spiraling into a dark abyss that seems never-ending. Once-favorite meals go down like poison, and all you can stomach is alcohol and Ben & Jerry’s. Coworkers are even more obnoxious. That bird who won’t stop shitting on your car glaringly reminds you of all your awful fantasy choices and the pile of shit you now need to climb through to have a prayer at the playoffs.

(Side note – in a particularly low and unprompted moment, I told a random old woman at the bar Sunday that I’d chop Mason Crosby into little pieces if given the chance. Even Wolves hit lows)

The craziest part? Lady Fantasy can stop on an Alvin Kamara-esque dime and switch owners’ fortunes with no rhyme or reason. Suddenly, an Odell Beckham (2014) Hail Mary flex rescues from the depths of hell, and sends you on a playoff run for the ages. The 5-0 owner suddenly succumbs to two fateful ACLs, and is a pushover in Round 1.

The key isn’t trying to solve this wild mistress. Instead, enjoy the ride and  never give up, knowing one week you’ll be left blue-balled and teary-eyed, only to treat you like a king for the rest of year out of nowhere.

And, of course, if you ever had a shot at controlling her, it’d be by using The Wolf’s Week 6 Fantasy Football Rankings.

As a reminder: these Week 6 Fantasy Football Rankings are based on 1/2 PPR, 4 Pt Passing TD Scoring.  

Week 6 Updates

  • Devonta Freeman has been ruled out, which locks Tevin Coleman into a 15-20 touch role versus the God-awful Bucs (6th most FPs to RBs). Granted, Coleman hasn’t done a whole ton in either of his other starts, and hasn’t found the end-zone since Week 1. But this is shaping up to be a multi-score kind of day. Ito Smith is also streamable in desperate situations.

 

  • Greg “The Leg” Zuerlin will NOT be back quite yet. As much as I love stashing this cheatcode, you need another option for at least one more week.

 

  • Both Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp are over their concussions and expected to be active. All three will remain Top-15 WRs for the week, with Robert Woods‘ ceiling taking a slight hit with his usual target competition back.

 

  • Sony Michel has randomly popped back onto the injury report after spending Thursday riding the stationary bike. He’s an RB1 if active, but having a back-up plan is necessary considering he plays Sunday Night. Perhaps Alfred Morris (60% owned) is hovering in your league still. If not, Kenjon Barner would be the Patriots Dart Throw replacement.

 

  • Latavius Murray flies up with Cook out — 20+ touches coming up against the worst run D in the league. He’s now RB18

 

  • Chris Thompson is out, which sends Adrian Peterson up to RB22 — he’s still very risky with a broken body right now, but should see even more rushing volume. Kapri Bibbs is now an actual real thing this week, and is one of my favorite creature flex plays if desperate.
