2010 Fantasy Football: Monday NFL Rewind (Week 6)
Last week we talked about the unpredictability of the NFL as we refereed to Peyton Manning’s zero TD performance, Drew Brees’ three costly interceptions, Arian Foster’s disappointing 27 total yards, and Oakland’s improbable win over the Chargers after blocking not one, but two punts. So how did all four of these subjects fare in week six?
Peyton Manning and Drew Brees both returned to their usual form as they each threw two and three touchdowns respectively, Arian Foster bounced back with 97 total yards and two touchdowns, and the Raiders failed to score a single touchdown as they handed the 49ers their first win of the season. Let the roller coaster ride continue!
Here is a look at what happened during week six in this edition of the TPS Monday NFL Fantasy Rewind.
Miami 23 at Green Bay 20 – In fantasy, and in reality, it always pays to have a solid kicker like Dan Carpenter.
San Diego 17 at St. Louis 20 – Sam Bradford may have found his replacement for Mark Clayton in Danario Alexander.
Baltimore 20 at New England 23 – Where has Deion Branch been for the past four years? He looks like the same Deion Branch that won a Super Bowl MVP in 2004.
Cleveland 10 at Pittsburgh 28 – Big Ben is back, and so is the dangerous Steelers air attack.
Kansas City 31 at Houston 35 – They may have won the game, but the Houston Texans’ defense tackle like a Lingerie Football Team. On second thought, that comment may be offensive to some LFL teams.
Detroit 20 at New York Giants 28 – Next in line on the Lions quarterback carousel? Drew Stanton.
Seattle 23 at Chicago 20 – I’m not sure which of these two teams is more confusing to figure out these days.
New Orleans 31 at Tampa Bay 6 -Could this three touchdown performance be just what Drew Brees needed to rejuvenate the Saints offense?
Atlanta 17 at Philadelphia 31 – Kevin Kolb or Michael Vick? That is the question. Andy Reid is still searching for the answer.
New York Jets 24 at Denver 20 – After throwing plenty on interceptions in his rookie season, it took Mark Sanchez until week six to finally throw the first and second INTs of his sophomore season.
Oakland 9 at San Francisco 17 – The 49ers finally found a way to win a game, and all it took was a match-up against Jason Campbell and a terrible Raiders offense.
Dallas 21 at Minnesota 24 – Tony Romo may not be winning games, but as long as he keeps on putting up touchdowns at this rate, I don’t think his fantasy owners will mind.
Indianapolis 27 at Washington 24 – When it comes to fantasy football, perhaps the only thing as sure as Peyton Manning is whoever happens to be running the ball against the Colts defense.
