With Justin Jefferson (hamstring), De’Von Achane (knee), Anthony Richardson (concussion) and James Conner (knee) all hitting injured reserve this week, crafting your Week 6 Fantasy football lineups just became more difficult. Fantasy football injuries have impacted every position and there are challenging start-or-sit decisions to be made at almost every turn. If you’ve landed backups taking on starting roles like K.J. Osborn, Jeff Wilson or Emari Demercado, you’ve enhanced your depth, but can you confidently put any of those options directly into your Fantasy football lineups?
Having a reliable set of Fantasy football rankings helps ensure that you’ve optimized your lineups to get the most out of every starting spot. They can also help you react in real-time to the latest NFL injury news to ensure you have backup plans. Before setting your Fantasy football lineups, be sure to check out the Week 6 Fantasy football rankings from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

Top Week 6 Fantasy football QB rankings
Here’s a look at SportsLine’s top Week 6 Fantasy football QB picks:
1. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills: After completing 27 of 40 passes for 359 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in last week’s loss to the Jaguars, Allen has now thrown two or more touchdowns in three of his last four games. He also added a rushing score in the 25-20 loss. He’s accounted for 13 total touchdowns over his last four contests and will look to add to that total on Sunday against the New York Giants.
2. Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins: Tagovailoa leads the league with 1,614 passing yards, putting him on pace to break the all-time mark of 5,477 yards posted by Peyton Manning in 2013. Tagovailoa and the Dolphins feature the league’s top-ranked scoring offense, averaging 36.2 points per game. Miami hosts the winless Panthers, a defense that’s giving up 28.8 points per game, which ranks 28th in the NFL.
3. Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings: Cousins lost his top receiver Justin Jefferson for at least four weeks to a hamstring injury, but this is still an offense that is built to air it out and rookie Jordan Addison has lived up to the hype. Cousins is averaging just under 300 passing yards per game and has thrown a league-leading 13 touchdown passes. Now, he’ll take on Chicago’s 31st-ranked pass defense. See more top QBs here.
Top Week 6 Fantasy football RB rankings
Here’s a look at SportsLine’s top Week 6 Fantasy football RB picks:
1. Christian McCaffrey, San Francisco 49ers: McCaffrey has now started 18 games for the 49ers, including the playoffs, and he’s scored 21 total touchdowns across those contests. This season, he leads the NFL in rushing yards (510), rushing TDs (seven) and total TDs (eight). He’s also scored a touchdown in each of his last 14 games with San Francisco.
2. Bijan Robinson, Atlanta Falcons: Robinson rushed 14 times for 46 yards and secured both targets for 12 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons’ 21-19 win over the Texans on Sunday. The rookie is averaging 5.4 yards per carry in his first season. He now faces the Commanders, who are giving up 133.6 rushing yards per game this season.
3. Tony Pollard, Dallas Cowboys: After posting less than 50 rushing yards in each of his last two games, Pollard gets a mouthwatering matchup against a Chargers defense that’s giving up 404.0 yards per game. Pollard has racked up 81 carries this season, the ninth-most in the NFL, so he’ll have plenty of opportunities to pile up Fantasy points on Monday night. See more top RBs here.
Top Week 6 Fantasy football WR rankings
Here’s a look at SportsLine’s top Week 6 Fantasy football WR picks:
1. Cooper Kupp, Los Angeles Rams: Kupp made his season debut last Sunday, recording eight catches for 118 yards in a 23-14 loss to the Eagles. The former All-Pro receiver was targeted 12 times and is expected to be heavily involved in Los Angeles’ game plan against a Cardinals defense that just gave up 192 receiving yards and three touchdowns to Bengals receiver Ja’Marr Chase.
2. Tyreek Hill, Miami Dolphins: Hill continues to be the focal point of a Dolphins offense that is averaging 513.6 yards per game. He leads the league in receiving yards (651) and receiving touchdowns (five) and has eclipsed 150 receiving yards in both home games this season. On Sunday, Hill and the Dolphins have a favorable matchup against the winless Carolina Panthers.
3. Stefon Diggs, Buffalo Bills: Diggs has been efficient in recent weeks. Diggs secured six of seven targets for 120 yards and three touchdowns in the Bills’ 48-20 win over the Dolphins in Week 4. He followed that impressive performance by catching eight of 11 targets for 121 yards and a touchdown in the 25-20 loss to the Jaguars in London. See more top WRs here.
Top Week 6 Fantasy football TE rankings
Here’s a look at SportsLine’s top Week 6 Fantasy football TE picks:
1. Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs: Kelce exited Sunday’s Week 5 win over the Vikings late in the second quarter, but was fearless and able to return after halftime. Kansas City’s star tight end finished the game having caught 10 of 11 targets for 67 yards and one touchdown. Kelce has now scored a touchdown in three of his four games this season.
2. Mark Andrews, Baltimore Ravens: After missing Week 1, Andrews has racked up 225 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He remains Lamar Jackson’s favorite target after recording six catches on 10 targets for 65 yards in Sunday’s 17-10 loss to the Steelers. He’s also recorded either a touchdown or more than 50 receiving yards in three of his four contests.
3. T.J. Hockenson, Minnesota Vikings: With Justin Jefferson (hamstring) set to miss time, Hockenson could see his role expand in Minnesota’s offense. Hockenson has seen at least eight targets in every game this season and now he’ll square off against a Chicago defense that’s allowed the third-most catches in the league to tight ends through five weeks.

Top Week 6 Fantasy football defense rankings
Here’s a look at SportsLine’s top three Week 6 Fantasy football D/ST picks:
1. Bills D/ST: The Bills are giving up 16.0 points per game this season, which ranks fifth in the NFL. On Sunday, Buffalo will square off against the New York Giants, a team that’s averaging just 12.4 points per game.
2. Eagles D/ST: Philadelphia’s defense forces teams to be one-dimensional. The Eagles are giving up just 61.2 rushing yards per game this season and now they’ll face the New York Jets, a team that has committed eight turnovers already in 2023.
3. 49ers D/ST: The 49ers feature the league’s top-ranked scoring defense, giving up just 13.6 points per game. San Francisco’s front seven is among the best in the league and they’re allowing opponents to average only 64.2 rushing yards per game. See more top D/ST here.
