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...

If someone had told you before the season started that the Denver Broncos would be undefeated in their first five games with an offense that ranks 30th in the NFL, and that Peyton Manning would have more interceptions than touchdown passes in that...

This was supposed to be the year that the Miami Dolphins climbed from the depths of mediocrity, ascending into legitimate playoff contender. Key additions such as DT Ndamukong Suh, TE Jordan Cameron, and WR Kenny Stills were presumed to be the...

The Chicago Bears (2-3) roll into Detroit Sunday on the high of a two-game win streak that has included two late comeback victories against the Chiefs and Raiders. Meanwhile, the Lions (0-5) are reeling after a blowout loss last week to the...

Andy Dalton
The 5-0 Cincinnati Bengals travel to Buffalo on Sunday to face a 3-2 Bills team that should provide a solid challenge for Andy Dalton and the impressive weapons around him. The Bengals will enter their bye week after this and would like...

Teddy Bridgewater
The Minnesota Vikings (2-2) return to action after a Week 5 bye to host the Kansas City Chiefs (1-4). The Vikings fell 23-20 against Denver in Week 4, as a collapsing pocket and Broncos pass rush prevented quarterback Teddy Bridgewater from...

Game day fashion doesn’t have to be sweatshirts, jerseys and jeans. New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman — with the help of Cielo Brands stylists Arturo Castaneda and Stephanie Higgs — sports a “high low”...

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...

Hard to believe, but we are six weeks into the NFL season and there's still a lot to be determined. The Giants are atop the NFC East, but are they really the division's best team? The Eagles, Cowboys and Redskins could all make claims to...

Both teams have little time to prepare for this Thursday night game after playing on Sunday afternoon.  This is the first game within the NFC South for the Falcons. This is the Saints' third. The Falcons hold an advantage of 49-43 in...

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...

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)....

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...

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...
