The Most Accurate Experts from Week 6

Oct 14, 2014

If you’re a fan of surprises, week 6’s action had more than its fair share to keep you entertained. From Joe Flacco racking up 5 first half TD passes to the Cowboys outclassing the Seahawks in Seattle, it was a week of unexpected outcomes. Heck, even the Raiders got in on the act by producing multiple relevant fantasy players. When that happens, you pretty much know it wasn’t the easiest week for the experts to predict.

 

With that in mind, let’s take a look at the top 10 experts (out of 133) from week 6 to see who handed out the best advice. You can also check out the accuracy portion of our site for the full season’s standings.

Congrats to scoutPRO for putting together week 6’s most accurate rankings. The scoutPRO crew had the top-rated WR advice and it showed in their rankings. They were the only site we monitored to give T.Y. Hilton a top 5 rating. Hilton delivered the best game of his career with a line of 9 receptions for 223 yards and 1 TD. ScoutPRO’s ranking (WR #4) for Hilton was a full 14 spots ahead of the Expert Consensus. They also hit it big with their rankings of 3 other wideouts that surprised as top 10 performers: Torrey Smith (+16 rank spots above consensus), Andre Holmes (+25 ranks spots above consensus) and DeSean Jackson (+9 rank spots above consensus). And, at QB, it’s always a good idea to tout the guy that’s about to throw 5 TD passes in one half. ScoutPRO had Joe Flacco rated as their 8th best QB for the week. That was a higher ranking than all but 1 expert (out of 133) gave Flacco in week 6. It firmly served as a recommendation to consider the Ravens’ QB a quality start vs. the beleaguered Bucs.
