With a farewell starting this week, there are fewer players to choose from for your Week 6 Fantasy football lineups. For example, the lineup depth of Fantasy owners will be tested, but at the same time, Fantasy Football’s start-sit decisions can be easier if you don’t have so many options to choose from. One of the potential Fantasy football sleepers could be Melvin Gordon of the Broncos. With Denver going up against a Chargers squad that grants more Fantasy Points to opposing RBs than any other, Gordon gets a boost in the Week 6 Fantasy Football Ranking. Before setting up your Fantasy Football lineups, check out the Advanced Computer Model Week 6 Fantasy Football Rankings at SportsLine.
When it comes to player rankings, SportsLine’s model has beaten human experts in fantasy football in recent seasons, especially when there were big differences in ranking. Over the course of a season, that can literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.
Last week, the model was extremely high on Saints TE Taysom Hill, saying he would finish in his position as a top-10 player. The result: Hill carried the ball nine times for 112 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday’s win over the Seahawks. He also completed a pass for 22 yards and an extra score. Everyone who had him in the lineup was well on their way to a great week.
Now the model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, has released its Fantasy Football rankings for Week 6 of the 2022 NFL season. Go to SportsLine now to see them.
Top Week 6 Fantasy Football Picks
One player the model is high on this week: Seahawks walking back Kenneth Walker III. Seattle’s starting RB Rashaal Penny (leg) was injured last week and is now lost for the season, pushing Walker into the depth chart. He cleared himself last week with 88 yards and a touchdown on just eight touches. After not playing in week 1, the rookie has ramped up his rush in every game since.
Seattle’s offensive line is dominant in the run game, as evidenced by the team leading the NFL with 5.5 yards per carry. The team’s Week 6 opponent, Arizona, just allowed a season-high 139 rushing yards last week, along with two scores. For five weeks, the Cardinals allowed the opposing team’s No. 1 to run back to average 77.6 scrimmage yards and score four total touchdowns. Walker is ideally placed behind the Seattle line and should reward those who put him in their Week 6 Fantasy football lineups. Find out who else to focus on here.
And a huge shock: Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith, who has recorded at least 80 receiving yards in three of his last four games, stumbles massively and doesn’t even make the top 20 in his position. Smith registered 10 catches for 87 yards in Philadelphia’s win over the Cardinals on Sunday. However, the Philadelphia offense struggled in the second half, scoring just six points in the 20-17 win.
Smith and the Eagles will now face a stingy defense from the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. The Cowboys give up just 14.4 points per game, the third best mark in the NFL. Additionally, Dallas has not allowed more than one touchdown pass in a game this season, which doesn’t bode well for Smith’s Fantasy value this week. With such a tough match-up on Sunday, Smith is a player to bench in Week 6. Check out who else you need to blur here.
How To Set Week 6 Fantasy Football Rankings
The model also calls for a surprise quarterback you won’t even think about to finish in the top 10 of the Week 6 Fantasy football rankings. This choice can be the difference between winning big and going home with nothing. Only here you can see who it is.
So who should you start and sit this week? And which surprising quarterback can lead you to victory? Head over to SportsLine now to get Fantasy Football’s Week 6 rankings for each position, plus see which QB will come out of nowhere to crack the top 10, all from the model that has vastly outdone the pundits.
