Welcome to Week 6 of the Fantasy Football season. Below I'll give you the pertinent active and inactive news and then keep you updated on the early action in the NFL. Good luck!

 

Follow me @Chet_G on Twitter where I spend the rest of my time when not blogging during the games.

 

We also have rankings from Mr. Pat Daugherty, Nick Mensio’s sleeper picks, my AFC and NFC Targets and Touches and Evan Silva's detailed look at every game in his Matchup Column. So click on all of those and read and take screen shots and print them out for wallpaper.

 

 


INACTIVE/ACTIVE NEWS


* Calvin Johnson is active and looked good in warmups.


* Mike Williams is out against the Philadelphia Eagles. Vincent Jackson will go and get more targets, but more attention.


* Michael Vick is active, but will not start. Nick Foles gets the start. 


* Darren McFadden, Rashad Jennings and Marcel Reece are all active. There isn't much upside here.


* CJ Spiller is active.


* Adrian Peterson is active.


* Stevie Johnson is out. Robert Woods will be the #1 receiver this week.


* Marlon Brown and Jacoby Jones are both active and probably will cancel each other out.


* Miles Austin will start against Washington.


* Zac Stacy is active and will start against Houston.


* Andre Johnson is active and is a must start.


* Adam Schefter tweets, "Nothing official on WR Larry Fitzgerald's status until later, but some bad vibes about his status with Cardinals playing again Thursday." Be sure to have a backup plan for Fitzgerald.


* Blair Walsh is active. Start him as you usually would.



Week 6 Early Game Action


* Eddie Lacy off to a hot start with 2 carries for 47 yards. Great start against a tough run D.


* LeSean McCoy with a 44 yard screen. Nick Foles gives him more looks in the passing game. Great addition.


* Nick Foles does his Vick impression on a designed run for a 4 yard TD.


* Arian Foster with four early carries for 29 yards. Should be a big game for him.

* Thad Lewis with a long completion to TJ Graham, the longest play for the Bills this season. Lewis doesn't look like a downgrade at the moment. 


* Thad Lewis with a QB draw for the TD. Looking very good against a tough Bengals D.


* James Jones limping off the field now.


* LeSean McCoy fumbles. Revis recovers and returns it for a TD. Will be reviewed. UPDATE fumble counts, but Revis was down by contact.


* Sam Bradford 2 yard TD pass to TE Harkey. Texans D still not on point.


* Joe Fauria catches his 3rd TD of the year. He's a TD machine with 3 on the season. Of course he gets zero most games.


* AJ Green catches an 18 yard TD. The Bills were a great matchup for him to get off the schnide.


* James Jones return is questionable with a leg injury.


* Cam Newton throws a 2 yard TD to Steve Smith. The Vikings pass D is a great matchup to get going.


* DeAndre Hopkins fumbles after a 31 yards reception. Houston is trying to give this game away but not Schaub's fault!


* CJ Spiller looking good with 4 carries for 28 yards. He's been running better lately, just having trouble with injuries. Maybe he can get things turned around this week.


* CJ Spiller is also asking out of the game. He's not 100% unfortunately.


* Terrelle Pryor with a 27 yard run. He is so close to being an every week start. If he can play well against the Chiefs he will be.


* DeAngelo Williams getting a lot of work and looking good, plus pass receptions, which he hasn't been getting this season.


* BenJarvus Green-Ellis with 4 carries to Bernard's 1. Sad trombone.


* Chris Ogbonnaya with an easy 4 yard TD reception from Brandon Weeden.


* Vincent Jackson catches a 24 yard TD over the middle from Mike Glennon.


* Arian Foster already at 10 carries for 98 yards, but Houston bogs down near the goal.


* Gio Bernard gets a 1st down on 3rd and 1 and then catches a shovel pass for an amazing 20 yard TD. He continues to look a million times better than Green-Ellis.


* James Jones will not return. No update on severity of injury.


* Terrelle Pryor is 5/7 for 57 yards and 3 carries for 44 yards. Alex Smith is getting pressured constantly and is 4/12 for 41 yards and 10 yards rushing. Pryor is winning this matchup so far.


* On cue, Terrelle Pryor throws a 39 yard TD to Moore. Dude is good. That connection has looked great this season.


* Antonio Brown drops a back shoulder TD.


* Geno Smith had Stephen Hill for a 70 yard TD, but overthrew him.


* Zac Stacy is running well against a good Texans defense. Great vision and falls forward. He helps set up another TD pass for Sam Bradford, this one to Lance Kendricks.


* Cam Newton throws his second TD of the day, this one to Mike Tolbert for 10 yards. Newton getting it done.


* Nick Foles is making a play for that starting job. Very nice pass into the back of the end zone for DeSean Jackson, a 12 yard TD.


* Antonio Brown with 8 targets already. He has 6 receptions for 61 yards.


* Arian Foster adds a 41-yard reception to all his rushing yards.


* Jamaal Charles continues to kill it in the receiving game. He has 3 receptions for 48 yards.


* Carolina's run D is stout, holding Peterson to 6 carries for 19 yards.


* Brandon Weeden hasn't looked great, but has his second short TD pass, this one to Greg Little.


* First half RB touches for BUF: Fred Jackson 9, CJ Spiller 7, Tashard Choice 5.


* Jamaal Charles 7 yard TD run. That's 6 straight games with a TD for Charles. Just 25 more total yards to hit 100 yards for the 6th straight game.


* Mike Glennon and Vincent Jackson hook up again. This one a one yard fade. Doug Martin owners cry after he had a 24 yard run to get them to the one.


* Calvin Johnson has 5 targets, including 2 in the end zone, but only one catch for 7 yards.


* Randall Cobb carted to the locker room from the sideline.


* Marshawn Lynch is active. TE Zach Miller inactive.


* Cam Newton tosses a 79 yard TD to Brandon LaFell.


* Sam Bradford tosses his third touchdown of the day, this one to Brian Quick for 4 yards. Bradford looking good.


* Andy Dalton also throws his third TD, this one to Marvin Jones for 10 yards. And of course Aaron Rodgers is 10/21 for 116 yards and no TDs.


* Ben Roethlisberger throws a 55 yard TD to Emmanuel Sanders. He's having a good game against the Jets pass D. Looking like an easier matchup than in the past.


* Keshawn Martin fumbles and it's returned for a TD. The Texans are reeling.


* Nick Foles strikes again. This time a 47 yard TD to Riley Cooper. Let the controversy start.


* Rob Gronkowski is officially out.


* Arian Foster at 166 total yards.


* Aaron Rodgers intercepted in the end zone. Not his day so far.


* Matt Schaub holding his right knee, TJ Yates coming in.


* Matt Stafford and Reggie Bush help out their worried owners by hooking up for an 18 yard TD. Bush did all the work on that screen. Always great in the open field.


* Cam Newton runs one in this time for a 7 yard TD. He's having a huge game.


* Mark Ingram is inactive. This helps Pierre Thomas a bit.


* Randall Cobb will not return. That's a huge blow to an offense already missing James Jones.


* T.J. Yates is picked near the goal line and it's returned for a 99 yard TD. Insane.


* Matt Cassel has 110 yards passing and one INT. Good chance we see Josh Freeman next week. Very good chance.


* Larry Fitzgerald is active. It doesn't seem like he is 100%.


* Terrelle Pryor reminds us how young he is with a very bad INT. KC is in FG range.


* Torrey Smith has 3 targets, but no receptions today.


* Jamaal Charles runs in his second TD of the day. This one for 2 yards. He's quickly becoming the #1 RB this season.


* Rodgers tosses a 64 yard TD to Jordy Nelson, his last starting WR still playing.


* It's time to take Tim Wright, Bucs TE, seriously in fantasy. He has 7 receptions for 91 yards today.


* Joe Fauria catches yet another TD. This one his longest of the season, a 23 yarder. He's had 6 receptions and 4 TDs on the season.


* Thad Lewis throws a TD to Scott Chandler.


* Ben Tate in for Arian Foster in the blow out.


* Nick Foles throws his 3rd TD of the day and 2nd to DeSean Jackson. Foles is coming up huge.


* Ben Tate and Mike Tolbert get rushing TDs in garbage time.


* Randall Cobb on the sideline with crutches. Jarrett Boykin is the speculative pickup.


* Bilal Powell to locker room with injury. Mike Goodson getting time.


* 8 sacks for KC on Pryor. Killing him.


* Josh Gordon just caught his 7th pass and is at 126 yards on the game.


* Brandon Weeden just threw the worst interception in the history of football.


* Thad Lewis hits Marquise Goodwin for a 40 yard TD to tie the game up. Big time throw.


* Joseph Fauria with his third TD of the game. He's now at 5 TDs on the season with 7 receptions! Insane!


* Cecil Shorts is getting checked out. Hope he's ok.


* Terrelle Pryor just fell apart in this game, closing it out with interceptions on his last 3 drives, this one returned for a TD.


* The Jaguars try a fake punt from their own 20 to no avail. It's better to try and not succeed, etc...


* Knowshon Moreno moves the Broncos down field then Manning to Orange Julius Thomas TD, his 7th of the season.


* It doesn't look good for Cecil Shorts. Looks like he won't be returning.


* LeGarrette Blount is getting all of the work early.


* Carson Palmer intercepted. He just keeps getting worse.


* Peyton Manning TD #2, this one to Wes Welker for his 8th on the season.


* Kendall Wright continues to play well. He's at 4 receptions for 57 yards against the Seahawks.


* Chad Henne is 5/9 for 75 yards. Decent start with Shorts done for the day.

* Cardinals 22 total yards, 49ers 8.


* Carson Palmer throws another pick.


* Marshawn Lynch goes in from 1 yard.


* Larry Fitzgerald defies the odds and catches a 75 yard touchdown from Carson Palmer, with most of the yards after the catch.


* Stevan Ridley gets off the bench and has a couple good runs and then scores a goal line touchdown.


* Aqib Talib is covering Jimmy Graham well, 2 targets for no receptions.


* Tom Brady has completed passes to 7 players already.


* Stevan Ridley with TD #2 on the day. Your time to buy low has passed.


* Colin Kaepernick is picked at the goal line. Not doing well this season to say the least. Amazing game 1, then pretty far downhill.


* Justin Blackmon has 7 receptions for 82 yards already.


* Colin Kaepernick takes advantage of the free play (Cardinals jumped offside) with a 61-yard TD pass to Vernon Davis.


* Peyton Manning is pick-sixed. What was up is now down. Broncos up 14-12 at half.


* Target Leaders so far: Vincent Jackson (14), Kris Durham (13), Chris Ogbonnaya (12), Brandon Marshall (11), Antonio Brown (11), AJ Green (11)


* Brittan Golden just made a 53-yard catch from Palmer after being activated from the practice squad.


* Andre Ellington then rushes in for a 15 yard TD.


* Vernon Davis has 124 yards on 5 receptions and a TD with 5:44 left in the second.
