Fantasy Football: Week 6 rankings


Fantasy Football: Week 6 rankings

Five weeks into the season doesn't exactly provide season-defining data, but we're getting closer to figuring out fact from fiction. 

Tampa Bay's defense surrenders the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Seems legit, so, good news for Matt Ryan owners in Week 6.

The Jets allow the second-fewest points to fantasy tight ends. Does that stinginess mean sit Eric Ebron Sunday? Eh, probably not considering the limited options at the position, but such statistical factors now become part of the weekly lineup equations. 

Here's a look at this week's position by position rankings. Good luck out there.

2018 NFL Power Rankings: Titans rising, shake-up in Top 10


2018 NFL Power Rankings: Titans rising, shake-up in Top 10

The most surprising outcome from Week 10 in the NFL season was the Tennessee Titans 34-10 thrashing of the New England Patriots.

How far did New England fall? How high did the Patriots rise?


Despite missing three starting offensive lineman and several other key contributors due to injury, the Redskins got back in the win column with a 16-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With a two game lead in the NFC East, their stock rose a tad.

Coming off their bye week, the Eagles fell to the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. How were each of their rankings affected?

The Saints won their eighth straight, while the Steelers won their fifth straight. Where do these two rank in the Top 5?


The battle for No. 32 is perhaps more interesting than the battle for No. 1, but the Raiders stay in control of the bottom spot for now.

Adrian Peterson is fifth in rushing and, oh yeah, he finally feels fully healthy now


Adrian Peterson is fifth in rushing and, oh yeah, he finally feels fully healthy now

The version of Adrian Peterson the Redskins have been getting this year — the one who currently sits as the NFL's fifth-leading rusher and the one who has been the team's only consistent offensive threat — hasn't even been the fully in-shape version, according to Peterson.

If you take him at his word, that's a pretty frightening thought for non-Redskins defenses to ponder.

After practice on Wednesday, the 33-year-old was asked about how he's feeling after dealing with ankle and shoulder problems earlier in the season. Those problems are apparently now all behind him.

"Last week, I actually started feeling all the way healthy," he said in the 'Skins locker room. "My shoulder, I'm back to bench pressing. I hadn't done that in three weeks. And so I'm back to doing the normal things that I was able to do. My ankle's feeling good, my body's just feeling refreshed."

Oh, so the guy who's been averaging nearly 75 yards per game on about 17 carries per game and the guy who's scored four total touchdowns through nine contests is only just now back to normal?


"Second half has been a blessing to me, you know?" he said. "It was a grind the first eight weeks, and here now, as I stand in front of you, my body's feeling amazing."

Must be nice to be one of the sport's best players of this generation, huh?
