Welcome to Week 6 of The Worksheet, a fantasy football overview, by Rich Hribar.

It’s hard to believe that we’re already in Week 6, but here we are. Samples sizes continue to grow and we have a good feel for the identity of most teams early in the season. Week 6 is our first week with four teams on bye, so make sure to account for the Colts, Bears, Raiders, and Bills taking the week off.

Game, Total and Props

As the author, it’s imperative that I note that this is an expectations-based column over a linear start/sit forum. The labels for each subset of players for each game is simply the vehicle for those expectations and have a different context for each player. 

This article will be updated throughout the week to reflect major news or injury implications. I encourage that you use the game by game tables and data points here in conjunction with the player rankings that will be available every week this season on Thursdays and enjoy the games.
