Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 6

Peyton Manning

Peyton Manning

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. Manning probably won’t get there this week, but the Jets are allowing the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing QBs so it’s not out of the question that he ends up as the top scorer for a second straight week. And while he may trail Manning by a whopping 443 touchdown passes (and by 208 games played), Russell Wilson looked equally impressive on Monday night when he accounted for all three Seattle touchdowns (2 pass, 1 rush) and rushed for a game-high 122 yards in the Seahawks’ 27-17 win over the Redskins. Wilson and his team return home to face Tony Romo and the surprising (4-1) Cowboys.

Each week during the NFL season, we will rank enough players at each position to appease everyone from those in 8-team leagues to 16-team leagues, those that can start two QBs, two TEs, three RBs and four WRs. We cut out the rest, because if you're looking at who the 50th-best running back or the 17th-best kicker is for that week, you need more help than any Web site can give you.
