Mike Tagliere’s Week 6 Fantasy Football Rankings

Is Todd Gurley back in the RB1 conversation after his two-touchdown performance in Week 5?

Each week that goes by, we’re seeing more and more of a sample size, which should ultimately lead to better projections, rankings, etc. If there’s one thing fantasy owners can get better at, it’s to stop assuming that just because a player produced last week, it doesn’t mean he’s a locked-in starter this week. I mean, how many said, “Mike Evans is back!” after his three-touchdown game? Sure, he finished with 89 yards and a touchdown the next week, but did you know 67 of those yards and the touchdown came on one play in the fourth quarter? Without that late garbage-time touchdown, he would have finished with three catches for 22 yards, then finished with zero catches for zero yards the next week. What would the opinion be on him then? Guys, the same thing goes for players coming off bad weeks. Just because Baker Mayfield and Odell Beckham were bad last week, it doesn’t mean they’ll be bad this week.

When looking at the rankings, I fully expect you to have some questions on why your favorite player is ranked too low, or why your least favorite player is ranked too high. That’s where The Primer comes in. That’s the article where I write a paragraph from every fantasy relevant player from every game (yes, even guys like Trey Quinn and Mike Gesicki). Whether it be snap counts, injuries, or cornerback matchups, it’s all covered there. The Primer comes out every Thursday morning, so if you’re wondering why a player is higher or lower than you’d think, the answer will be in there. Until then, here’s my early look at Week 6 rankings.
