Fantasy Football Week 6 Rankings: Position-by-Position Breakdown

We are scared of snakes and spiders, yet we walk obliviously down the sidewalk as speeding cars pass. 

Our ancestors didn't worry about speeding cars, driven by idiots, that could kill them at any moment.

There were no cars. They worried about snakes and spiders that could bite them. A natural ally in reality, but a mortal enemy in their ingrained fiber. The fiber we still carry today—thousands of years later. 

There are parts of our brain that haven't caught up. Evolution happens slower than innovation, evidently. 

This is why your stomach hurts if you are 1-4. This is why you feel utterly defeated. You have entered a competition. In your mind, your assets are on the verge of being forfeited to others who will use them to their caveman-like benefit. It hurts.  

The good news is, you still have time. A 7-6 record generally gets you into the playoffs. I've even seen 6-7 teams make it in 12-team leagues numerous times.

Teams that get hot toward the end of the season seem to always make the big late-season runs for championships. Fantasy mirrors reality. 

The 4-1 and 5-0 owners know this, and they can't afford to sit back, either. (They aren't, trust me.)

This is your Week 6 Fantasy Breakdown.
