Fantasy Football 2014 Running Back Rankings: Week 6

Once again, injuries have caused quite a bit of shuffling to Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Running Back Rankings for Week 6. Montee Ball, Rashad Jennings, Zac Stacy, Reggie Bush and Donald Brown were among those who got hurt last week, opening the door for others on their teams.

Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 6

Peyton Manning led all fantasy scorers last week with 479 yards passing and four touchdowns, including No. 500 in his career
Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 6

Peyton Manning returned to his customary spot of leading scorer last week, which is why he reclaims his position atop Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings for Week 6. Manning threw for 479 yards and four touchdowns (along with 2 INTs) in Denver’s 41-20 win over Arizona. With 503 career touchdown passes, he’s closing in on Brett Favre (508) for No. 1 all-time.

Fantasy Football 2014 Kicker Rankings: Week 5

San Diego’s Nick Novak is tied for the league lead with 10 made field goals
Fantasy Football 2014 Kicker Rankings: Week 5

Nick Novak’s hot leg has helped San Diego win its past three games and also is a big reason why he leads off Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings for Week 5. The Chargers host the Jets, a team that has struggled to defend the pass and could wear down in the San Diego heat. As good as Novak has been early on, he trails Dallas’ Dan Bailey in fantasy points at the position. Bailey and the surprising 3-1 Cowboys will try and keep things going offensively against Houston in what should be an entertaining battle for Lone Star State bragging rights.

 

Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 5

Richard Sherman and the Seahawks’ defense come off of a bye with a Monday night matchup against a turnover-prone Washington offense
Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 5

Seattle’s defense has not performed like the No. 1 DST thus far, but the reigning Super Bowl champion’s Week 5 matchup is too tempting to not reinstate them at the top of Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Defense/Special Teams Rankings. The Seahawks may be on the road for their Monday night tilt with Washington, but the Redskins are coming off of a horrendous Week 4 loss to the Giants in which Kirk Cousins alone was responsible for five turnovers. Who are you going to trust more – the “Legion of Boom” or Cousins? That’s what I thought.

Fantasy Football 2014 Tight End Rankings: Week 5

Jimmy Graham is once again pacing tight ends in fantasy scoring after Week 4
Fantasy Football 2014 Tight End Rankings: Week 5

Jimmy Graham continues to lead the way when it comes to Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings for Week 5, but it’s the rest of the top 10 that may open some eyes. Graham, Julius Thomas, Antonio Gates and Greg Olsen are no real surprises, and the same could even be said for Martellus Bennett and Delaine Walker.

Fantasy Football 2014 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 5

Antonio Brown is fantasy’s No. 1 wide receiver after Week 4
Fantasy Football 2014 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 5

Even with several top targets returning from bye, they all take a backseat to the leading scorer at the position in Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings for Week 5. Antonio Brown currently leads all his peers, thanks to five touchdown receptions, although to be fair he has played in four games. Elsewhere, the health of a couple of No.

Fantasy Football 2014 Running Back Rankings: Week 5

Frank Gore rushed for 119 yards and also caught a 55-yard touchdown last week against Philadelphia
Fantasy Football 2014 Running Back Rankings: Week 5

DeMarco Murray is leading the NFL in rushing by a pretty wide margin, so it makes sense that he sits in the top spot in Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Running Back Rankings for Week 5.

Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 5

Eli Manning was the leading fantasy scorer in Week 4 after totaling five touchdowns against NFC East rival Washington
Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 5

With just two teams on bye in Week 5, Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings have returned to “normal” for the most part. While Peyton Manning will be back on the field (at home against Arizona), Drew Brees gets the nod for the top spot since his Saints are at home in must-win mode against a Tampa Bay defense that has had problems stopping the pass.

Fantasy Football 2014 Kicker Rankings: Week 4

Indianapolis’ Adam Vinatieri led all kickers in fantasy scoring in Week 3 after connecting on three field goals and five PATs in the Colts’ big win over the Jaguars
Fantasy Football 2014 Kicker Rankings: Week 4

Stephen Gostkowski remains atop Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings for Week 4, but he currently is sixth in fantasy points at the position. The leading scorer is Philadelphia's Cody Parkey, a rookie who wasn't drafted and actually started out in Indianapolis' camp before being traded to the Eagles. He beat out Alex Henery for the starting job and has connected on eight of his first nine field goal attempts, including two of 50 yards or longer.

Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 4

Luke Kuechly and the Panthers’ DST will look to bounce back after giving up 37 points and 454 total yards last week to the Steelers
Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 4

Lots of defensive firepower taking a seat this week, as the first bye of the season shakes up Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Defense/Special Teams Rankings for Week 4. No Seattle, Cincinnati, Arizona, Denver, St. Louis or Cleveland means many an owner will have to look elsewhere to fill this spot in their lineup. One potential option could be San Diego. The Chargers have done a good job of limiting the opposition on the scoreboard (16.3 ppg, 4th in the NFL), as well as getting to the quarterback (7 sacks).
