The Fantasy Football Checkdown: Week 6 Advice and Rankings

I may have dropped the ball by telling you to start Jared Cook and avoid Michael Crabtree in Week 5, but the rest of the advice was gold. Give me some props for that Jacoby Brissett call! Or how about my advice to sit Russell Wilson?

I promise, as the weeks go on, I’ll toot my horn a little less. (Not because the fantasy advice is going to get worse, though.) I’m feeling even more confident in my sleepers and big-name busts for Week 6, so let’s get to them.

If you’re looking for complete QB, RB, WR, and TE rankings for Week 6, just scroll beyond the video.
