Odell Beckham Jr.
There are so many wide receivers on the Week 6 injury reports that chances are every fantasy owner has some sort of lineup decision to make this week at the position. And if you are one of the fortunate ones that don’t have any of these...

Running backs are always on the injury report, and Week 6 is no exception. Most of the big names in fantasy are either already ruled out (such as Jamaal Charles) or are healthy. However, we'll go through all of the running backs that most...

Put your hand up if you had Gary Barnidge scoring more fantasy points last week than Rob Gronkowski? Anyone? How about Josh McCown throwing for 457 yards and two touchdowns? Or how about Adrian Peterson scoring zero fantasy points? Ah ha! Got you...

As we look at Week 6, it is likely your fantasy team is marred by injuries. Whether it was to the quarterback position, the running back position or you are staring at a listing of Qs or DNPs next to names on your roster, it's been tough. As a...

As always, I like to start my fantasy football start/sit articles by taking a look back at how I did the week before. So before we dive into Week 6, here’s how the Week 5 wide receiver/tight end advice did. Good Calls: Start...

Before we get to Week 6, let’s take a quick peek back at what went right and what went wrong as far as the fantasy running back start/sit advice that was offered last week. Good Calls: Start Devonta Freeman (25.7 fantasy points)...

Before we get to start/sit quarterback and defense/special teams (DST) fantasy advice, I know you are really interested to see how last week’s tips fared. Good Calls: Start Drew Brees (16.3 fantasy points) — As long as the...

Adrian Peterson
Now that we are at Week 6 of the NFL season, ranking certain running backs for fantasy purposes is getting easier and easier. Grab a sharpie and write in Le'Veon Bell as the No. 1 running back (or No. 2 at worst) every week he plays, and as...

Antonio Gates
So believe it or not Rob Gronkowski wasn’t the No. 1 scoring fantasy tight end last week. I know, that sounds crazy. Does that mean that guys like Gary Barnidge and Tyler Eifert are going to be ranked ahead of Gronk this week? Um, no. Not...

Andrew Luck
Even though he had his worst showing of the season last week against the Cowboys (275-2-0), Tom Brady regains his status as the No. 1 quarterback in the Week 6 rankings. He's matchup-proof, and to make his owners even happier this week, ...

Stephen Gostkowski
After the bye week, Stephen Gostkowski takes the top spot in the kicker rankings in what should be a high-scoring affair against Indianapolis on Sunday night. Matt Bryant at New Orleans ("Dome, Sweet Dome") is the second-...

After weeks at the top (or second) of the DST rankings, the Seahawks fall to third this week, even though they are home to Carolina. It's not that the Seahawks may struggle; rather, the Denver Broncos are unstoppable (on defense, that is)....

Devonta Freeman
Week 6 is here already and this week Devonta Freeman looks to maintain his fantasy dominance at the running back position. DeAndre Hopkins and Le'Veon Bell follow closely behind in this week's Flex rankings due to volume of touches and...

DeAndre Hopkins
DeAndre Hopkins tops the Week 6 wide receiver rankings thanks to his volume of targets (NFL-best 75 through five games) and production in the Texans' offense. Julio Jones and Odell Beckham Jr. are battling nagging injuries, which don...

Now that we have passed the quarter pole mark of the 2015 fantasy football season, it's time to look back on Week 5. We lost Jamaal Charles for the season, which is a huge blow to fantasy owners — and to the Kansas City Chiefs. The...

Charcandrick West
Week 5 brought some greta misfortune for fantasy owners, and the NFL as a whole losing Jamaal Charles. This will open the door for a new running back to fly off the waiver wires this week as well, but the situation in KC may not be as optimal...

Week 5 has come and gone and another devastating injury strikes the NFL (and fantasy), as it loses another of its biggest stars in Jamaal Charles. The season-ending torn ACL will open the door for Charcandrick West and Knile Davis, who...

Jamaal Charles
We had a slight lull in major injuries for Week 4, but on Sunday, a big-name running back went down, much to the dismay of his fantasy owners (not to mention himself and his team!). When Jamaal Charles hit the Arrowhead Stadium turf Sunday...

Jay Cutler
As we enter Week 5 of the NFL and fantasy seasons, we have more injuries to analyze. At least we didn’t lose another quarterback in Week 4, so be thankful for the little things. Actually the only quarterback on the injury report is Jay Cutler...

Randall Cobb
There are plenty of wide receivers on the Week 5 injury reports, which is not something fantasy owners want to see. The early-season carnage has been so bad that several teams have more than one wideout on the injury report. That is the...

After a quarter of the NFL season has been played, some big-name fantasy running backs are already either struggling or not playing. It's tough drafting running backs early and watching as they just take up space on your bench and you are...
