Fantasy RB PPR Rankings Week 6: Who to start with, sit as a runner in fantasy football

| Sport Top stories | Yahoo news


Fantasy football owners might be surprised that in a week where Alvin Kamara is a bye, he’s not even close to the best pass catching back out. That honor would go to one of this season’s outstanding running backs, Cordarrelle Patterson, whose 25 receptions are among the best for a running back. Patterson’s teammate Mike Davis is also well ahead of Kamara with 18 receptions. That doesn’t mean either man is an overall better fantasy runner than Kamara, but it does show that value can be found in some unexpected places in the receiving points leagues. Our week 6 RB PPR fantasy rankings attempt to account for all the different sources of production.

In addition to Kamara and the Falcons’ backs, Elijah Mitchell and Michael Carter will be free this week. Of course, we know there will be no more key RBs available, as several key guys were lost last week (Chris Carson, Christian McCaffrey, Dalvin Cook), and injuries will continue to show up for the rest of the season, as we saw with Saquon Barkley. . and Clyde Edwards-Helaire last Sunday.

Some running backs known primarily for their PPR value are in better-than-average spots this week as JD McKissic (vs. Chiefs), Nyheim Hines (vs. Texans) and Jerick McKinnon (@ Washington) have very favorable matchups. Brandon Bolden (vs. Cowboys) and Kenneth Gainwell (vs. Buccaneers) are two more primary receiving backs with matchups against teams that have fought RBs specifically in the passing game. There won’t be much floor space for these guys, but they could rack up catches and post numbers worthy of flexibility in full-point PPR formats. Myles Gaskin (@ Jaguars) is another guy known for his receiving ability with a favorable matchup.

Of course, it’s difficult to be a starting running back in fantasy leagues based solely on your receiving skills (like Jeremy McNichols or even Giovani Bernard), so it’s worth playing with a lot of average receiving backs. Darrell Henderson (@ Giants), Leonard Fournette (@ Eagles), and Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams (vs. Raiders) have great matchups, and Henderson has the added advantage of playing a defense that also struggled against the backs in the passing game. .

Among hard-hitting running backs, Damien Harris (vs. Cowboys) is especially risky in PPR leagues as he doesn’t catch many passes. Chris Carson or Alex Collins (@ Steelers) and Josh Jacobs (@ Broncos) are in the same boat. The Seahawks and Jacobs have had some decent receiving totals this year, but they’re nothing more than volume-based push-ups in those matchups. The same goes for Devontae Booker (against Rams) in relief from Barkley (ankle).

Things will constantly evolve throughout the year at this position, but with weeks off and injuries, things are likely to be tough for more than a few owners in his league. Sure, if you pick someone like Damien Williams (vs. Packers) on waivers, you may have three or more viable options, but most homeowners will look for two. Volume is still key, even at PPR, so unless you have an elite pass that recovers and also gets at least six or seven carries, there’s no need to be too cute with your lineup decisions.
