Week 6 Fantasy Football PPR Rankings by Position

Week 6 Fantasy Football PPR Rankings by Position


Fantasy football managers were in for a treat during Week 5 of the NFL season. We saw five non-quarterbacks go for at least 30 PPR points, including dandy 35.9-point outings from Austin Ekeler and Leonard Fournette. Taysom Hill, Gabriel Davis and Justin Jefferson also found themselves stealing fantasy headlines with huge days.

Unfortunately, fantasy managers must also prepare for some harsh realities as the season progresses. Week 6 is the first case of team byes, meaning four franchises won't be taking the field on Sunday. This includes the Detroit Lions, Houston Texans, Las Vegas Raiders and Tennessee Titans.

That also means the absence of playmakers like Derrick Henry, Josh Jacobs, Dameon Pierce and Amon-Ra St. Brown.

Even prior to Week 5's Monday Night Football contest, fantasy managers can start looking ahead to Week 6 and trying to identify the best players to fill out their starting lineups, especially with some sitting on a bye week. Check out The Duel's fantasy football rankings by position for PPR leagues into Week 6.
