Welcome to the latest edition of the greatest, well, technically the worst fantasy football lineup imaginable from Week 6. With each week's bum-studded lineup decided by balancing fantasy player ADP rankings and their respective scoring production from that week, based on FanDuel standard scoring.
From running backs to wide receivers, there are quite a few repeat offenders in The Duel's Week 6 Fantasy Fails. And this week we're really coming after the culprits that let us all down.
Week 6 Fantasy Fails Lineup:
Point Total = 20.98
The fantasy failures were out in full force in Week 6, with their 20.98-point team total, setting the new Fantasy Fails record-low scoring performance by more than three points.
Even though the wide receiver corps certainly held it down for this week's collective failure, Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald shockingly escaped a fifth-consecutive appearance on the Fails roster – the first time he hasn't been on it this season.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper's grand total of 0 points against the Seattle Seahawks was good, or should we say bad enough for the first Fantasy Fails' scoreless performance.
Los Angeles Rams slot WR Cooper Kupp also buried his head in the sand with 1.2 points, and if it weren't for Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson laying an equally embarrassing egg with 7.28 points, Kupp's Rams teammate Jared Goff would have found his face plastered on the Week 6 list after putting up just over eight points himself.
As for under-achieving repeat offenders, Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry earned his second Fantasy Fails appearance of the season with 3.1 points in a shutout loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Cooper and Jared Cook are both making their second appearances on the weekly list of fantasy shame as well.
The Jacksonville Jaguars defense/special teams unit makes the Week 6 list of fantasy shame after allowing 40 points to the mediocre Dallas Cowboys to finish with a negative point total.
