Fantasy Football Report: Week 6

After six weeks, you know where your team stands. I have heard that if you’re 2-4 at this point then there is no chance of making the playoffs. I heavily disagree. In one of my leagues I am 2-4 and there are a bunch of teams that are 3-3. If I can pull off a few wins in a row, then I am in great position. If you need to make a trade then I say this is the last week to do it. Week 7 will decide your fate.

Tony Romo Diagnosed With Broken Pinkie

Cowboys QB Tony Romo will miss at least four weeks due to a broken pinkie finger he suffered in the loss to Arizona on Sunday. Brad Johnson will take over as QB in Romo’s absence.

Two Roy Williams Are Better Than One

The Detroit Lions traded WR Roy Williams to the Dallas Cowboys and received a 1st, 3rd, and 6th round pick in 2009 and a 7th round pick in 2010. Williams was having a tough time in Detroit this season with just 232 yds and 1 TD. We’ll have to wait until Tony Romo returns to see how explosive Williams can be.

Jon Kitna Done for Season

Detroit Lions QB Jon Kitna was placed on injured reserve, ending his season. Kitna couldn’t get the ball rolling in Detroit with 758 yds, 5 TD, and 5 INT in 4 games played. Dan Orlovsky will be the starter for the near future. Personally, I think this may open up the run-heavy offense that Detroit was going to implement at the start of the season.

Now for the winners and losers from Week 6.

Week 6 Top Performers

Braylon Edwards (WR), Cleveland Browns: You know, I hate to say I told you so but, I told you so. Edwards had by far his best game of ’08 with 154 yds and a TD.

  • Week 7 Outlook: The Browns have been rejuvenated after a great game against the Giants and will bring that momentum against the Redskins who allow over 200 yds per game to opposing QB’s.

Derek Anderson (QB), Cleveland Browns: Anderson has fended off Brady Quinn for at least one more week by going 18-29 with 310 yds and 2 TD.

  • Week 7 Outlook: As I said above, the Browns face Washington this Sunday and hope to exploit a vulnerable Redskins team that handed the Rams their first win of the season last Sunday.

Maurice Jones-Drew (RB), Jacksonville Jaguars: MJD ran all over Denver’s terrible defense with 22 carries for 125 yds and a pair of TD.

  • Week 7 Outlook: The Jaguars are on the bye in Week 7, but face the Browns the next week. Cleveland is allowing over 130 rush yds per game.

Week 6 Duds

Terrell Owens (WR), Dallas Cowboys: Owens failed to impress anyone with just 36 yds receiving on Sunday.

  • Week 7 Outlook: The bad news is that Owens has lost Tony Romo for four weeks. The good news is that Dallas faces St. Louis this Sunday and the Rams’ defense is surrendering over 400 yds of total offense per game this season.

Santana Moss (WR), Washington Redskins: Moss had his worst game of the season with only two receptions for 22 yds.

  • Week 7 Outlook: The Redskins go up against a surprisingly good Browns pass defense that gives up just 188 pass yds per game.

New York Giants Defense: The Giants were finally exposed for the mediocre defense they were when the high-powered Browns offense had a field day on Monday Night Football. No, I am not mentioning this just to prove that I once again called it. New York allowed 29 points on defense and failed to record a sack, INT, forced fumble, fumble recovery, or anything of use to your fantasy team.

  • Week 7 Outlook: The Giants could redeem themselves when they face the 49ers on Sunday. If they can shut down Frank Gore then they have a chance to have a great game.

Unexpected Stars

Dominic Rhodes (RB), Indianapolis Colts: Replacing an injured Joseph Addai, Rhodes ran for 73 yds and a TD.

  • Week 7 Outlook: Addai may be sidelined for Week 7 and if Rhodes plays, he will carve up a poor Green Bay defense that allows over 150 rush yds per game.

Patrick Cobbs (RB), Miami Dolphins: Cobbs had a couple of huge plays last Sunday and had 138 receving yds and 2 TD.

  • Week 7 Outlook: Cobbs is a third string RB who had a very lucky game so, don’t expect it to happen again. Sorry!

Malcom Floyd (WR), San Diego Chargers: Floyd and Philip Rivers connected for 75 yds and TD in the Chargers’ victory over New England on Sunday.

  • Week 7 Outlook: Chris Chambers is set to return from an ankle injury which means Floyd’s numbers could take a hit. Plus the Chargers face the Buffalo Bills who allow only 184 pass yds per game.

Sports of Boston Friends and Family League

  • I lost a tough one by a score of 107.22 to 69.18. I blame most of it on Michael Turner (54 rush yds) and Joseph Addai (3 rush yds). I currently sit in 5th place with a 3-3 record and 651.78 points.
  • SoB’s KC remains in first even after losing to SoB’s Dan by a landslide (142.16 to 94.70). KC still has the most points in the league with 725.46.
  • SoB’s Jeff is the only team in the league who has not amassed at leat 500 points on the season. His Week 7 doesn’t look good since both his starting QB’s (Carson Palmer and Matt Hasselbeck) will both miss their starts.
  • No trades to report this week. True story.
  • Recent pickups include: Bobby Wade, Dominic Rhodes, Brandon Stokley, Charlie Frye, Michael Pittman, Sammy Morris, and Dan Orlovsky.
