2019 Fantasy Football: Week 6 PPR Rankings

Frank Ammirante | October 9th, 2019 

Week five was filled with phenomenal performances, with monster games from Deshaun Watson, Christian McCaffreyAaron Jones, Amari CooperWill Fuller, as well as the Philadelphia Eagles D/ST. Week six has a few projected shootouts, including a heavyweight bout between the two best young quarterbacks in the league. I’m sure that we’ll be in for a few surprises this week!

21Jared Goffvs. 49ers
22Marcus Mariotaat Broncos
23Sam Darnoldvs. Cowboys
24Joe Flaccovs. Titans

Mahomes is in a prime bounce-back spot in a shootout game with a 55-point total. He takes on a Texans’ defense that is allowing 270.4 passing yards per game. He’s the best choice for QB1 this week. The dark horse for QB1 is Murray, who should see some positive regression to his historically-low touchdown rate (2.0%). He takes on a Falcons’ defense that has been shredded by Jacoby Brissett, Mariota, and Watson in the last three weeks. This total opened at 47.5 but is now up to 51 points. Expect a big game for Kyler here.

McCaffrey is having a historic season right now. If you go back to last year (without counting week 17, where he did not play the full game), CMC has 2,118 yards from scrimmage and 19 touchdowns in his last 14 games. Even in a tough match-up against a Buccaneers defense allowing just 69.8 yards per game on the ground, CMC is the easy RB1. The dark horse for RB1 is Bell. Darnold is back this week, which will open up running lanes for Bell to go to work. Bell has averaged 24.5 touches per game this year, so he’s been a definite workhorse. The Jets will need to score points to keep up with the Cowboys, so Bell is a great play this week.

Julio is the likely WR1 this week in a shootout against the Cardinals. Arizona’s defense is allowing 269.2 yards per game through the air. After consecutive down weeks, Julio looks primed to pop off this week. The dark horse for WR1 is Beckham Jr., who has been a massive disappointment this season. OBJ has only 10 receptions for 103 yards on 22 targets in the last three games. He has the upside to blow up against any defense and we could see Baker force-feed him the ball to get him going. The Seahawks’ defense has allowed 270.6 passing yards per game this season.

24Cameron Bratevs. Panthers

Kelce remains as TE1 in yet another projected shootout, this time against the Houston Texans. Kelce has not found the end-zone since week two, so he’s due for a touchdown right now. The dark horse for TE1 is Olsen, who faces a Buccaneers’ defense that has been getting shredded in the passing game. Look for Olsen to bounce back after a week five where he did not record a catch.

D/STs

8New Orleans Saintsat Jaguars
9Carolina Panthersat Buccaneers
10San Francisco 49ersat Rams
11Dallas Cowboysat Jets
12Green Bay Packersvs. Lions

The Patriots should once again provide premium production this week, this time against a rookie quarterback in Jones. The Giants will likely be without Saquon Barkley, Sterling Shepard, and possibly Engram for this game. Add in the fact that it’s a short week and you have the recipe for disaster. They are D/ST1 for the week. The dark horse for D/ST1 this week is the Broncos, who should get their pass-rush going against Mariota, who has already been sacked 22 times this season.
