Week 6 Fantasy Football Recap!
Once again, Amazon Prime found a way to bore us to death with the Washington Commanders vs. Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football. It was 3-0 at halftime, and I was falling asleep. Wide receiver Dante Pettis caught 4-of-7 targets for 84 yards and a touchdown for the Bears. In the year’s feel-good story, Commanders running back Brian Robinson Jr. scored the game-winning touchdown 46 days after being shot.
Saquon Barkley rushed 22 times for 83 yards and one touchdown for the Giants. He could have had another touchdown, but he pulled a Brian Westbrook and took a knee to secure the victory over the Ravens.
Breesed lightnin’, go, Breesed lightnin’. Breece Hall rushed 20 times for 116 yards in the Jets’ Week 6 win over the Packers. The rookie phenom has become a fantasy stud. Packer’s Quarterback Aaron Rodgers hasn’t had a 300-yard passing game this season.
The Minnesota Wrecking Crew, aka The Purple People Eaters Defense, went down to Miami and had 6 sacks, 2 interceptions, and 1 fumble recovery in their 24-16 win over the Dolphins.
Matt Ryan completed 42-of-58 pass attempts for 385 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Colt’s 34-27 win against the Jaguars.
The 49ers lost to the Falcons 28-14, but San Francisco wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk had his best game of the season with 8 catches for 83 yards and two TDs.
Former L.S.U. Tigers Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase went back home to the Bayou to take on the New Orleans Saints. Joe Cool had 300 passing yards and 3 TDs, while his college roommate caught 2 of those TDs with 132 receiving yards.
Christian McCaffrey rushed 13 times for 69 yards adding seven receptions for 89 additional yards in the Panther’s 24-10 loss to the L.A. Rams. There are trade rumors that the 49ers, Bills, and Rams want to acquire CMC before the November 1 trade deadline.
Russ can’t cook. The Bronco’s $240M Quarterback struggled again on Monday Night, only throwing for 188 yards and 1 TD in their overtime loss to the l.A. Chargers 19-16.
Buccaneer’s running back Leonard Fournette rushed 21 times for 63 yards, adding six receptions for 38 additional yards and a touchdown in a shocking 20-18 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
In the rematch, we all wanted to see Josh Allen threw for 329 yards and 3 touchdowns and wide receiver Stefon Diggs had 148 yards receiving and 1 TD in the Bills’ 27-24 Week 6 win against the Chiefs.
There were a lot of low-scoring games this week. Hopefully, that will change in week 7.
