Week Six Picks: QBs & RBs

The NFL season is rolling into week 6 now and it’s time to take a look at the QBs and RBs for this weekend’s slate on FantasyDraft. I’m sure most people are going to put Tom Brady in their lineup against the Colts in their 1st meeting since Deflategate, therefore I’m not going to include him in the QBs. These are a few of the QBs that I like:

QBs

Andy Dalton vs. Buffalo Bills:

The “Red Rifle” has been on fire the last three ball games, throwing for 300+ yards and 6 TDs. Dalton enters this battle versus Buffalo fresh off of an overtime victory against Seattle’s “Legion of Boom” in which his Bengals overcame a 17-point fourth-quarter deficit. Buffalo’s pass defense has not lived up to its preseason billing thus far, ranking just 24th against the pass. Look for Dalton to put the ball in the air often.

Carson Palmer vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

I remember a time when you wouldn’t play any QB versus the Steelers. Well… that time has passed. Pittsburgh’s secondary has been vulnerable against the better QBs in the league this year (Brady with 288yds and 4 TDs, Philip Rivers with 365yds and 2TDs). Palmer should have a nice day.

Others: Matt Ryan vs. N.O; Sam Bradford vs. NYG

 

RBs

Dion Lewis vs. Indianapolis Colts

LeGarrette Blount is going to be a more tempting play in this matchup, considering the success he had the last few times he’s faced the Colts as a Patriot (314yds and 7TDs). Blount very well could score against the Colts, however Lewis has produced week-in and week-out for the Patriots. Lewis averages over 5 receptions per game, which is very important in the PPR format on FantasyDraft. He should be heavily involved in the passing and running game.

Carlos Hyde vs. Baltimore Ravens

Hyde seemed to get back on track last week against a very good Giants run defense, rushing for 93 yards and a TD. Baltimore’s defense has not been strong as of late, therefore you should expect Hyde to get plenty of opportunities to exploit them.

Others: Eddie Lacy vs. S.D; Adrian Peterson vs. K.C

 

 

London Fletcher

London Fletcher

London Fletcher is a former American football linebacker who played in the National Football League (NFL). Undrafted in 1998, he was signed by the St. Louis Rams as a rookie free agent and became a Super Bowl champion with the team. He was also a member of the Buffalo Bills, where he played for five seasons, and the Washington Redskins, where he played for seven seasons. Fletcher was well known for never missing a game in his career, being one of only four players in NFL history to play in over 250 consecutive games. Fletcher also holds the record for consecutive starts at the linebacker position. He eventually finished his career with 215 consecutive games started, which ties him for 6th all time along with Alan Page and Ronde Barber. London has agreed to be a writer and representative for the FantasyDraft brand and serves as an ambassador to the site. He has no more access to the site than the typical user.
