Tower of Power – Week 6 Fantasy Rankings

THE TOWER OF POWER – WEEK 6

Weekly Fantasy Rankings

In this regular article, we give you a lowdown of players whose fantasy performances were worthy of our top 20 this week – based on 0.5PPR format scoring.

For the interest of longevity and variety, we have only included the top 6 Quarterbacks in this list. This is to allow other offensive positions spaces on the board. Otherwise, most of the list would consist of QBs! However, we have included the weekly points rank of the players – so you can see where they lie on the overall points scoring for the week. 

Chase Claypool was our first Wide Receiver to the top spot last week. This time it was a familiar face to many a fantasy owner who graced the number one position.  

1. Derrick Henry – RB, Tennessee Titans – 39.4 pts (1st)

Henry sits on top of the power rankings this week. Topping the 250 yard mark from scrimmage with 212 yards rushing and 52 receiving. And running in for 2 rushing TD’s against a bleak Houston defence. The king has returned to his throne. 

2. Justin Jefferson- WR, Minnesota Vikings – 35.1 pts (2nd)

The rookie has been some what of a surprise in this Vikings offence. 11 targets, 9 receptions, 166 yards and 2 TD’s. That’s the third time he’s topped the 100 yard receiving mark. Who says rookie Wide Receivers don’t produce in their first season.

3. Deshaun Watson- QB, Houston Texans – 32 pts (3rd)

Watson put up his best numbers of the season on Sunday but it still wasn’t enough to win. 335 passing yards, 4 passing TD’s and 0 INT’s. Also rushing for 26 yards of 4 attempts. Watson will be wondering what more he needs to do to get his second win.

4. Matt Ryan – QB, Atlanta Falcons – 31.6 pts (4th)

After Ryan’s worst fantasy performance last time out, he rewarded his owners with a brilliant display. Completing 30 out of 40 attempts, Ryan threw for 371 yards and 4 TD’s with 0 INT’s. Lets hope for more performances like this!

5. Julio Jones – WR, Atlanta Falcons – 29.7 pts (5th)

If Ryan has a great game, normally Jones isn’t far behind numbers wise. After missing a few games through injury, Jones put up his best numbers this year. Racking up 137 yards from 8 catches. Also scoring his first 2 TD’s of the season. Julio seems to have shaken off his injury worries.

6. Kenyan Drake – RB, Arizona Cardinals – 28.4 pts (9th)

Drake finally broke the 100 rushing yard game for the first time this season. Registering 164 yards of 20 carries for 2 TD’s. Drake has been somewhat of a disappointment this year considering he was going as early as the first round in some drafts. If he puts up more numbers like in this game, the first round pickup in drafts will be justified.

7. Ryan Tannehill – QB, Tennessee Titans – 29.6 pts (6th)

Tannehill and the Titans look unbeatable right now. Throwing for 366 yards, 4 TD’s and 1 INT. The Titans had well over 500 yards from scrimmage this game. Which team is going to give them their first loss of the season?

8. Carson Wentz –  QB, Philadelphia Eagles – 29.4 pts (7th)

Wentz had a tough match-up against Baltimore this week but still put up great numbers. With half the offence out injured. Wentz still found a way to throw for 213 yards, 2 TD’s and rush for 49 yards and 1 TD. Wentz is carrying this injury riddled team.

9. Kyler Murray – QB, Arizona Cardinals – 28.9 pts (8th)

Murray didn’t put up great numbers through the air this week, but he made up for it on the ground. Completing only 9 of 24 attempts, 188 yards and 2 TD’s. It was his 10 carries for 74 yards and a TD that made up for it. Kyler really is the real deal.

10 . Lamar Jackson – QB, Baltimore Ravens – 28.2 pts (10th)

Just like Murray, Jackson made sure his legs did the talking again against the Eagles. Rushing for 108 yards and 1 score on 9 carries. 186 yards and 1 TD through the air. These are the kind of games we expect every week from Lamar, particularly in fantasy leagues!

11. D’Andre Swift – RB, Detroit Lions – 25.8 pts (12th)

Rookie Swift has been kept relatively quiet with Adrian Peterson ruling the roost. But, after the veteran got the first touchdown of the night, he let D’Andre take the reins, and the speedster did not disappoint. 116 yards off 14 carries with two touchdowns. The Running Back also snagged 3 receptions off 4 targets for 7 yards, giving him that little extra.   

12. Ronald Jones – RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 25.1 pts (14th)

RoJo has been rolling these last few weeks, and her bumper performance against the Packers was no exception. The game script and Fournette’s absence meant that Jones took a lead’s carry share of 23 attempts. Those runs gave him an admirable 113 yards and two touchdowns. Although he didn’t see as big a share of the passing game this week, he caught both of his targets for 8 yards.    

13. Christian Kirk – WR, Arizona Cardinals – 21.6 pts (16th)

It was all about the Cardinals run game on Monday. The passes were sprinkled in throughout. And while Kyler Murray’s passing was slightly haphazard, Kirk saw the best part of his air game. The Wide Receiver only saw three targets, but the two catches he made produced two touchdowns. And one of them was an 80 yard reception, so that’s where the extra points came from!  

14. Will Fuller – WR, Houston Texans – 21.3 pts (17th)

Of all the Texans Wide Receivers, Fuller seems to have been the most looked at – and the most consistent. With Bill O’Brien gone, DeShaun Watson has found a reliable target. 8 of Fuller’s 11 targets went for 123 yards and a touchdown. If he can keep himself on this form, some top seasonal stats beckon. 

15. Anthony Firkser – TE, Tennessee Titans – 21.3 pts (18th)

 Anthony Firkser’s touchdown actually came before Jonnu Smith left the field. But his team-mate’s departure was the backup’s gain. Firkser took in 8 of his 9 targets for 113 yards and that touchdown. Dependant upon the injury, we could be seeing a new favoured Tennessee Titans Tight End target.  

16. George Kittle – TE, San Francisco 49ers – 20.4 pts (20th)

Just below Firkser is another Tight End. After returning from injury, George Kittle has been seeing a huge amount of volume. 7 receptions off ten targets gave him 109 yards and a touchdown. He is a steady producer, come good or bad form – so this will keep him up the standings. 

17. A.J. Brown – WR, Tennessee Titans – 20.1 pts (21st)

Like Kittle, A.J. Brown has also returned from injury. And he too has been sorely missed by his team. They seem to be making up for lost time, as he got two touchdowns from 5 receptions (7 targets) and 56 yards. That included the game-tying touchdown to help the Titans to overtime.  

18. Trey Burton – TE, Indianapolis Colts – 19.9 pts (23rd)

 The Colts have really needed the Tight End group this season. They have seen plenty of action from Philip Rivers in the wake of numerous Wide Receiver injuries. This time, it was Burton’s turn to benefit. Four catches for 58 yards and a touchdown. But those extra points came from a well worked sneak rush that also saw him get into the endzone. He could well have been a shrewd pickup for many fantasy owners this week.  

19. Travis Kelce – TE, Kansas City Chiefs – 19 pts

The fantasy TE1 hits the list again. This time, he was a two-time touchdown scorer. The weather conditions didn’t seem to bother him as he pulled in 5 of his 7 targets for 65 yards and those scores. With such a fantasy wasteland at Tight End, Kelce has been one of the consistent bright spots at the position this year – and every year. 

20. Clyde Edwards-Helaire – RB, Kansas City Chiefs – 18.9 pts

What a momentous achievement for Clyde this week. That colossal yardage was something anyone could be proud of. It helped contribute to the Chiefs’ largest ever single-game rushing yard volume in Andy Reid’s tenure at the club. Sadly, his run into the endzone was brought back by a penalty. So all the points you see there are from his runs and catches. 26 carries made 161 yards on the ground. And all four of his targets were caught for an extra 8 yards. A phenomenal return for the rookie.
