Week 6 Fantasy Football Rankings - Standard and PPR Leagues

Some things to consider when using these rankings:

  • Use at your own risk. I am sharing something I do personally to help me slot players each week. 
  • This is meant to be a guide. If you have a gut feeling that the ranking of a player is too high, or too low, you might be right!
  • There will be a few players that slip through that are on IR, designated as "Out" for the week, etc. See, the thing is, I have a real job, and then I have this hobby. If/when I ever get paid to do this for a living, I can assure you there will be a QA process. Until then, just pay attention, and check the injury reports.
  • You will also sometimes notice that two players, from the same team, in the same position, are ranked - sometimes highly. This is because I use a "Points Against" weighting system when evaluating players. Averages have a "Defensive Weight" added to them, and sometimes, it's substantial. When this happens:
    • Pick the highest rated player, in that position, on that team, that is most likely to play.
    • For example, you own both Isaiah Crowell, and Duke Johnson, Jr. from the Cleveland Browns. Good job - you probably drafted one of these guys as a handcuff. You're smart. In this scenario, both Crowell and Johnson are both highly ranked, because their opponent sucks at stopping the rush. However, Crowell is the #1 overall RB. Continue to be smart by playing Crowell, and sitting Johnson. You do not play both. That would dumb.
    • In unusual circumstances, you might end up playing BOTH players. This is usually in cases of 2 WRs. I generally try to point that out on the podcast.
  • Players are in "Tiers." Technically, according to the way I do the stats, the first and last guys in the same tier are likely to have similar games/stats. The key word there is likely.

Ep. 074 - Fat Guys Fantasy Football Podcast

[MP3] Listen and/or download directly.

Running Time: 1:14:05

We consider this the first official episode of the 2015-16 Fantasy Football Season. Halle-freakin-lujah people!

Listen to the first part of the show to understand why I did not use an F-Bomb above. No we are not censoring the show. Yet. FEEDBACK NEEDED.

Start checking into league administrative stuff NOW. Do not wait. Make sure everyone that played last year, is playing this year. New league? Start getting with everyone to determine the points scoring system. And for god's sake - SET A DAMN DRAFT DATE.

After that, it's the good stuff. Jeff talks about Janeane Garofalo backing up Tom Brady (or whatever that guy's name is). Drew has an opinion on Martavis Bryant (that's weird), and other strategic items as the draft looms nearer.

Glad to have you back. Weekly shows start the week of August 17th, and bi-weekly shows after the first Monday night game. Crush your league. There is no other way.

No Welker... Yet.

According to Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk, the NFL and NFLPA still have not finalized an agreement regarding new drug testing policies.

So why do we care?

If you listened to the show from last night, you know that Jeff and I warned everyone that reporters like Mark Maske and Chris Mortensen were tweeting that the deal may not go through before the Sunday games. Suspended players like Wes Welker, and Orlando Scandrick will probably remain suspended until next weekend. There's no immediate impact on Josh Gordon, as he won't be back until at least week 11.

I think the NFL delayed on purpose. They're willing to make a deal, but do not want to be perceived as "soft" after a week of PR nightmares. They drew the line in the sand. Can't blame the players for trying.
