Gentry Estes Louisville Courier Journal Published 10:56 AM EDT Oct 11, 2018 Week 6 in fantasy football will be without two bye-week teams that tend to be among the more fun inclusions: the New Orleans Saints (usually good for some high scores) and the Detroit Lions. But here's how it's shaking out from our vantage point as you tend to your weekly and DFS (daily fantasy sports) lineups this week: High-scoring games (VIA OVER-UNDER LINES) Kansas City at New England Tampa Bay at Atlanta Pittsburgh at Cincinnati More: Keelan Cole leads list of top Week 5 NFL performances by local players Low-scoring games (VIA OVER-UNDER LINES) Jacksonville at Dallas Baltimore at Tennessee Chicago at Miami Quarterback GREEN LIGHT (Start 'em) Tom Brady, New England: It's looking like a shootout Sunday night in New England, and this is the combination of an effective quarterback, a vulnerable defense and an opposing offense that can score quickly against the Pats' defense.

Welcome back fantasy football fans! With training camps getting underway, it’s time to start getting ready to chase another championship. Don’t forget to check out Rotoballer.com for all of the tools you need to get the edge on your league mates. Bet On the Bears Signal-Caller The Bears selected Mitchell Trubisky second overall in 2017, but nobody really had any expectations of immediate success.

You can root for players with both team and fantasy loyalties, or of course, have the right to be disappointed on both fronts at the same time.ESPN rolled out "The 192" rankings (because a 12-team league with 16 players on roster drafts 192 players) and it's oddly clustered by position, but as a conversation starter in June, we'll take it.The Bucs have six players represented, exactly the league average as one of 32 teams.
