Welcome to the Week 6 QB Rankings!
I had two appointments this morning. One with my optometrist and the other with my dentist. Yeah, another rough Thursday. Not to worry, the novocain (I hate the stuff so much) has worn off and I’m busy with rankings. I should have everything thing posted by about 8pm. Your patience is always appreciated. This clears my schedule as far as medical stuff. At least I hope it does!
It’s a decent week for the position though the main slate is a bit light due to the best game being on Sunday Night Football. Not a bad week to play the Thursday to Monday slate.
These rankings will be updated on Saturday.
I’ll be back in a bit with the WRs, RBs and TEs.
Bye teams: Saints & Lions.
Week 6 Rankings:
|1||Patrick Mahomes||KC||6.900||KC@NE 10/14/2018 08:20PM ET||Ohhh baby. This is going to be fun. Mahomes just keeps scoring points so no reason to doubt his fantasy appeal here.|
|2||Tom Brady||NE||6.600||KC@NE 10/14/2018 08:20PM ET||Love him this week. KC plays no D and Brady has his weapons now.|
|3||Matt Ryan||ATL||6.800||TB@ATL 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||All system go here. Lock him into those lineups.|
|4||Kirk Cousins||MIN||6.700||ARI@MIN 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||The Cousins/Thielen stack looks pretty sweet this week.|
|5||Aaron Rodgers||GB||6.600||SF@GB 10/15/2018 08:15PM ET||Definitely like this matchup for an improving Rodgers. He’ll probably be without a few weapons, but last week, we saw that he can get by with what he has.|
|6||Jared Goff||LAR||6.000||LAR@DEN 10/14/2018 04:05PM ET||The dude is rolling but there are some injuries to Cooks and Kupp to consider.|
|7||Jameis Winston||TB||5.800||TB@ATL 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||He’s going to be Señor Chalk on DraftKings this week and I’ll have plenty of him myself.|
|8||Deshaun Watson||HOU||6.400||BUF@HOU 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||He continues to get it done, but as I said early on, he seems determined to play physical at all costs and it could get him hurt at some point. That said, he’s a nice play here at home versus the Bills.|
|9||Cam Newton||CAR||6.100||CAR@WAS 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||Not loving the matchup or the game from a points scored perspective. Still, Cam can take over and score 20 fantasy points in the fourth quarter, so always a QB1 on my board when healthy.|
|10||Andrew Luck||IND||6.200||IND@NYJ 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||This could be a smash spot if Luck had his favorite weapons, but he’ll be targeting Chester Rogers and Ryan Grant a lot in this one so expect serviceable numbers but not a monster day. No T.Y. Hilton or Jack Doyle this week. On the other hand, the Jets are playing without two of their top three corners, so it’s a fair fight.|
|11||Russell Wilson||SEA||5.700||SEA@OAK 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||I like this matchup for him. Baldwin should be getting healthier now.|
|12||Ben Roethlisberger||PIT||6.500||PIT@CIN 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||This game feel like a trap. His one bad game was against a divisional foe. He’s a QB1 in seasonal, but I doubt I’ll have much of him in DFF.|
|13||Philip Rivers||LAC||5.900||LAC@CLE 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||Tough matchup as the Browns can bring serious pressure up the gut and that’s not what Rivers handles well.|
|14||Andy Dalton||CIN||6.300||PIT@CIN 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||He’s played so well, but this game is a bit tougher than it looks.|
|15||Baker Mayfield||CLE||5.500||LAC@CLE 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||Tough matchup, but he’s going to get you some decent production. Not a spot for DFF consideration in my view.|
|16||Mitchell Trubisky||CHI||5.300||CHI@MIA 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||Everything they dialed worked back in Week 4, and with the bye, they had tome to prepare for Miami, so I suspect they’ll have some good things in store early on. Just don’t expect another massive game. This is a tougher matchup and it’s on the road.|
|17||Blake Bortles||JAX||5.600||JAX@DAL 10/14/2018 04:25PM ET||He’ll throw plenty but he’s been pretty stinky lately so just an average play. These two teams love to play slow, so even if you expect Bortles to play well, I’d shave off a few points.|
|18||Sam Darnold||NYJ||5.300||IND@NYJ 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||He’s viable at home in a good matchup.|
|19||Derek Carr||OAK||5.100||SEA@OAK 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||Decent matchup here so I expect him to get past last week’s tough outing, but it’s the London game, so who knows what’ll happen.|
|20||Joe Flacco||BAL||5.200||BAL@TEN 10/14/2018 04:25PM ET||These are two teams who enjoy ugly football. Not looking to get deeply involved and Flacco is not on my QB short list.|
|21||Alex Smith||WAS||5.400||CAR@WAS 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||Not a great matchup for Smith, but he’ll complete a lot passes and give you a QB2 result. Both Doctson and Crowder are banged up.|
|22||Marcus Mariota||TEN||5.400||BAL@TEN 10/14/2018 04:25PM ET||Ugly game shaping up here. None for me, thanks. I sort of like Alex Collins here—if they give him the ball. Risky idea given the likely nature of the game and his fumble-itis, but I like the matchup for him.|
|23||C.J. Beathard||SF||5.200||SF@GB 10/15/2018 08:15PM ET||Play the Packers D against him. That’s all I got.|
|24||Ryan Tannehill||MIA||4.900||CHI@MIA 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||Tough matchup. Break glass only if necessary.|
|25||Josh Rosen||ARI||4.700||ARI@MIN 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||Bad road matchup. None for me, thanks.|
|26||Case Keenum||DEN||5.500||LAR@DEN 10/14/2018 04:05PM ET||No, no, no.|
|27||Dak Prescott||DAL||4.700||JAX@DAL 10/14/2018 04:25PM ET||I hope you don’t need to do this.|
|28||Josh Allen||BUF||4.700||BUF@HOU 10/14/2018 01:00PM ET||He’s in a funk to put it mildly, and with very few open receivers, it’s not going to be fixed any time soon.|
|29||Carson Wentz||PHI||6.100||PHI@NYG 10/11/2018 08:20PM ET||ALREADY PLAYED — Should be solid here but he’ll probably have to play without Lane Johnson at RT and that’s a tough loss. If Johnson plays, he’ll be hobbled by a high-ankle sprain.|
|30||Eli Manning||NYG||5.300||PHI@NYG 10/11/2018 08:20PM ET||ALREADY PLAYED — Not a bad play here if you have a need. The Eagles corners cannot handle OBJ. If Eli can get a big play or two out of Barkley in the pass game, he could have a nice day.|
