Week 6 Fantasy Football Rankings (2019 UPDATED)

Lady Fantasy is a cruel yet sultry beast! For some owners, she couldn’t be more generous, handing out TDs and Ws, even when you don’t deserve them, all 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 has gone wrong. You’ve scored the second-most points three different times… and lost them all. Mirrors are impossible to look into. Once-favorite meals go down like poison, and all you can stomach is alcohol and Ben & Jerry’s. Coworkers are even more obnoxious than usual. 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 fantasy playoffs. Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff” summarizes your day-to-day.

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 waiver pickup 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.

No matter where you stand, the key isn’t trying to solve this wild mistress. Instead, enjoy the ride and never give up, knowing one week fantasy will leave 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.

Bye Week: Bills, Bears, Raiders, Colts

Scoring Reminder: These rankings are based on 1/2 PPR, 4 Pt Passing TD Scoring.

Week 6 Fantasy Football Updates

  • Todd Gurley (quad) is doubtful to play. Thanks to that ferocious d-line, the 49ers are surrendering the fewest FPs to RBs. Thus, Malcolm Brown could be tossed into lineups, but isn’t a must-play by any means. I’m also intrigued to stash Darrell Henderson (23% owned), who has been nonexistent, but remains incredibly explosive and was recently praised by Sean McVay: “There’s also going to be a time that we’re going to rely on Darrell Henderson, it might end up being this week.”


  • David Johnson (back) is “likely” to play Sunday after returning to Friday practice. He remains a game-time decision, and with a 4pm start, a back-up plan must be in place. Chase Edmonds would be the ideal fallback here, as he’d be a high-end RB2 in a great matchup should DJ sit. If he’s scooped, look for Henderson — another 4pm start.


  • Davante Adams (toe) is “unlikely” to suit up. In fact, when asked about the injury, Adams said: “I can’t really tell you when I’m going to play… I know it doesn’t feel how I want it to feel at the moment.” Not ideal. Aaron Rodgers should be benched without his top-weapon. Of the replacements, I prefer Geronimo Allison, though I’d look elsewhere — perhaps Byron Pringle (14%) is available, or even Keke Coutee (16%).


  • Alvin Kamara (ankle) is legitimately questionable after missing Friday’s practice. Somewhat surprisingly, Latavius Murray is available in over 50% of leagues. He’d be a must-start against a Jags D surrendering the 6th most FPs to RBs.


  • Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is doubtful for Week 6’s impending shootout with the Texans. Meanwhile, Tyreek Hill (clavicle) is a game-time call, though there’s “optimism” he’ll be available, even if only for a limited snap count. Ultimately, Byron Pringle (14%) needs to be on your streaming radar, and Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson remain blow-up candidates, especially if both starters sit.


  • Chris Carson popped up on the early-week injury report with a shoulder ailment, but has since been removed from the final list. He’s locked-in as the every-down horse here, especially if Rashaad Penny misses the matchup with a hamstring injury.


  • Jalen Ramsey is expected to miss yet another game with his mysterious back ailment. Tre Herndon should again be a whipping post, and all Saints rise against a Ramsey-less DEF.


  • Hunter Henry (knee) is questionable, but practiced in full Friday. He would be limited even if active, but needs to be owned after being dropped in countless leagues (54% owned currently.).


  • Marquise Brown (ankle) is officially a game-time decision after missing practice all week. The Bengals matchup is juicy, so Brown should be locked into lineups if active, but now must be monitored. Maybe, just maybe, Willie Snead or Miles Boykin would offer some desperation streaming appeal, but give a look at Pringle first.


  • TJ Hockenson (concussion) is “trending towards playing.” Still, on MNF and versus the 5th toughest defense versus TEs, he’s risky to wait on.
