Week 6 Fantasy Rundown – RB, WR, QB Rankings

Each week The Kommish will be putting out his projected top 10 rankings for the upcoming round of games. The rankings are based on stability of performance, matchups, and general potential awesomeness of the player at their respective position.

 

RB Start of the Week:  Arian Foster v. Packers

At this point it’s pretty much Arian Fost versus anyone. The Texans could be hampered by a weakened defense after losing Brian Cushing to a torn ACL. However, you’ve seen Foster run by now. That fool is start of the week until proven otherwise.

 

WR Start of the Week:  Andre Johnson v. Packers

The Pack is currently giving up an average of 23.6 fantasy points to wide receivers, and Andre Johnson is looking like he’s in the midst of a 2012 resurgence. Chances are this Week 6 matchup is going to turn into a shootout and Schaub is a right capable gunslinger that will have eyes going Johnson’s way.

 

QB Start of the Week:  Matt Ryan v. Raiders

The Raiders have given up the 2nd most fantasy points to QBs and an average of 22.5 points to receivers. Again, that sounds like a pretty favorable setup for Ryan and his strong receiving group. Look for a big game all around for the Falcons, and expect Ryan to pile on the points in Week 6.
