A look at team defenses for Week 6 in fantasy football leagues, including rankings and units whose stocks are rising and falling. THREE UP: The Chicago Bears have two weeks to prepare for a Tampa Bay offense that could be going in the wrong direction. Chicago is harassing opposing quarterbacks and still ranks as the most productive defense in fantasy. The Bears could be No. 1 this week, too. ... the Houston Texans could be finding their stride and have home-field advantage against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6. They also get the Jaguars, Dolphins and Broncos in the three weeks that follow. ... the Ravens are going on the road to face Tennessee, but the odds suggest Baltimore is still worth a play in fantasy. The Titans offense is erratic and underachieving and comes off a weak showing in a loss to lowly Buffalo, where they turned the ball over three times. THREE DOWN: In terms of all three phases of the game, the Dolphins could have their hands full against the Bears. Chicago's … [Read more...] about Fantasy football Week 6 D/ST rankings: Baltimore Ravens up, Miami Dolphins down, Arizona Cardinals worth watching
Week 6 fantasy football rankings
There are just two weekends left before the NFL starts the regular season. Thousands of fantasy football leagues will be drafting soon. Through Saturday I’ll share my rankings for each position. I started with quarterbacks Tuesday, followed by running backs Wednesday. Wide receivers are up next with tight ends and defenses to follow. This year I’ve added tiers to better help you prepare for your draft.RELATED: Fantasy football rankings: Top 250. Wide receivers Tier 1 Not a lot to say here. Antonio Brown is at the top of his game and was just a single touchdown shy of scoring at least 10 for four straight years last season. He’s on a streak of five years in a row of gaining more than 1,200 yards. You should draft a consistent, high-scoring, can’t-miss player in the top five and Brown can be that player. Drafting him is like taking a stud running back.1. Antonio Brown, PIT Tier 2 With DeShaun Watson returning from injury, the sky is the limit for DeAndre … [Read more...] about Fantasy football position rankings: Wide receivers
By Ryan Kartje | [email protected] | Orange County RegisterPUBLISHED: August 18, 2018 at 12:30 pm | UPDATED: August 18, 2018 at 12:58 pm Fantasy football season is fast approaching. Your draft is right around the corner. But we’ve got you covered. Here are our rankings of the top 100 players. Happy drafting! 1. Todd Gurley, RB1, Rams 2. Le’Veon Bell, RB2, Steelers The consensus top two backs in fantasy football are basically interchangeable. Both are going to get a ton of touches. Both are incredibly versatile. Gurley may not be able to reproduce his 19 touchdowns from a year ago, but Sean McVay’s promise that he can do even more as a receiver is enough to convince me he’s the top option. Bell, however, is a fantastic consolation prize. 3. Ezekiel Elliott, RB3, Cowboys 4. David Johnson, RB4, Cardinals 5. Antonio Brown, WR1, Steelers 6. Alvin Kamara, RB5, Saints 7. Saquon Barkley, RB6, Giants Barkley is just a rookie, but in new Giants coach Pat … [Read more...] about Fantasy football rankings: Top 100 players
Fantasy football is just around the corner. Be sure to check back frequently for up-to-date fantasy football rankings. Keep those rankings in mind as we take a look at each division’s players on the rise, on the decline and ones to watch for all 32 teams. Here’s a look at the NFC South.Falcons Rising Matt Ryan, QB—He regressed last season, as I predicted, but a second year with his offensive coordinator should help Ryan and the Falcons improve on offense. Ryan threw a touchdown pass on 3.8 percent of his throws last year. That was a big drop from 7.1 in 2016. His career average is 4.6 percent, so I expect him to get closer to that number this year. Ryan is getting drafted after the likes of Kirk Cousins, Jimmy Garoppolo and Matthew Stafford. He looks like a value pick in the ninth round.Falling Mohamed Sanu, WR—Taylor Gabriel is no longer a Falcon, but Atlanta drafted a solid wide receiver in Calvin Ridley. That could affect Sanu’s value. He should … [Read more...] about Fantasy football players rising, falling and ones to watch: NFC South

That said, some signal-callers provide far more upside than others, and fantasy drafters confident in their ability to pluck value … [Read more...] about 2018 fantasy football QB rankings: How to evaluate Aaron Rodgers, Andrew Luck?
