Week 6 fantasy football rankings and waiver adds
Hello Playbook subscribers!
Here come our initial Week 6 fantasy football rankings for all scoring formats.
Since they are exclusive to Playbook subscribers, they are password protected, so please note that below. As always, these will be updated as the week progresses, so check back as needed. (Please note: You should only need to put in the password once per week from now on, but reach out if you have any issues!)
Since we’re still in waiver wire territory, I’m also sharing a few pickup recommendations courtesy of 5th Down’s Aidan Gurvitch.
Hope all is well where you are, and thanks so much for subscribing!
Week 6 waiver wire adds
Geno Smith, SEA- QB (36%)
That’s right. We are in 2022 and Geno Smith is locked in as QB1 of the Seattle Seahawks. Aside from Week 2, Geno Smith has had solid to great play every week. If Smith continues to play like this, fantasy managers who pick him up may no longer need to stream QBs every week.
Kenneth Walker III, SEA- RB (46%)
There is no player I am more excited for than Kenneth Walker, despite only owning him one league. When I first saw him in college last year I saw a future fantasy football star, but I got turned off drafting him in late August due to losing the job to Rashaad Penny in addition to a supposed Hernia issue.
Finally, Walker gets his shot with Penny potentially out for the season. Walker has shown so many flashes this season in his limited time on the field this year, and that time is no longer limited. If Walker is still available to pick up in your league, consider yourself lucky as you just found yourself a future starter.
Josh Reynolds, DET- WR (31%)
There is no reason not to trust Josh Reynolds at this point. With almost 30 targets in his last three games, Reynolds has been nothing less than consistent. Even in the Lions’ first bad offensive week of the season, Reynolds still produced almost 100 yards. Detroit has the bye in Week 6, but it’s time to call dibs on him before it’s too late.
