Fantasy Football Week 6 Start Rankings

October 14, 2009 | Thyrl Nelson

Here are the position-by-position start rankings for week 6. The formula is based on 2-parts player expectations, and 1-part based on the expectations of the defense that’s going against the player this week. The formulary numbers are in parentheses behind each pick, the lower the better, with a lowest possible rating of 3.

 

As always, keep an eye on the injury report, trust your gut, and have fun, that’s the whole point.

 

There are also still 12 chances remaining to submit your own winning entry, in the WNST salary cap game. The prizes are going out to the highest single week scores, so even if you aren’t entered yet, there’s still a very realistic shot at winning. The prizes are $1250 for 1st, $750 for 2nd and $500 for 3rd. It’ll take you 5 minutes to sign up and cost you nothing. So, what are you waiting for?

 

Congrats to Washingtim, who led all scorers last week with 169 points. Unfortunately for him, it wasn’t enough to unseat Talleshortz or WinningComesEasy89, who are still tied for first with 189 points, or Hobos, in third with 179 points.
