Week 6's fantasy football playbook
Your guide to avoiding misery on NFL Sunday.
Howdy 5th Down friends!
Hope all is well where you are this weekend! As always, I’m excited to share my latest player rankings and some of what my team at 5thDownFantasy.com has worked on this week. I’m also leaning on some of my favorite DFS experts from around the web to help me with my DraftKings lineup this week.
Speaking of the rankings, I just updated them. You won’t see the Saints’ Jarvis Landry or Michael Thomas on there, they’ve both been ruled out already, but you will see Andy Dalton again (just don’t start him). There are also loads of top players in limbo heading into Sunday.
Keep reading for the latest on some of those Questionable studs, and you can access the rankings via the password below. A reminder that you only need to enter that password once per week now. [Shout-out to Bo for encouraging me to fix that bug!]
Thanks again for reading, and feel free to email me anytime with questions or feedback.

Some Week 6 news you can use
Courtesy of our friends at FantasyPros…
CeeDee Lamb popped up on the injury report Friday and was listed as a non-participant in the walkthrough, which is concerning. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor his status and have backup plans in case he can’t play.
Jonathan Taylor got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, so he appears to be on the right side of questionable to return from his one-game absence.
Tyreek Hill has been officially cleared to play on Sunday against the Vikings. The “cheetah” should be a fringe WR1 on Sunday, even with rookie Skylar Thompson under center.
Cooper Kupp is dealing with a foot injury, but head coach Sean McVay expects Kupp to suit up. Rams TE Tyler Higbee is also Questionable but is expected to play. But Cam Akers will not be active, meaning Darrell Henderson
Player rankings update
Our Week 6 fantasy football rankings for PPR, Half-PPR, and Standard scoring formats have just updated, and will continue to as more injury updates become available up until kickoff on Sunday.
