Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 6 Studs and Duds 31932099 Dud - Willis McGahee vs. Lions Dud+-+Willis+McGahee+vs.+Lions Fantasy Football

The Detroit Lions were ranked 27th against the rush allowing over 124 rushing yards per game heading into Week 6.  They were also allowing over 20 fantasy points per game to opposing running backs.  For Willis McGahee owners, Week 6 was a bust because the Browns used Chris Ogbonnaya out of the backfield to the tune of seven receptions for 60-plus yards.  So, McGahee finished with only 10 carries for 37 yards. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 6 Studs and Duds 31932103 Dud - Ray Rice vs. GB Dud+-+Ray+Rice+vs.+GB Fantasy Football

Ray Rice is averaging less than 40 rushing yards per game this season (5 games).  If not for falling in the end zone three times, Rice would be averaging 5.6 fantasy points per game.  Unless Rice does score on a weekly basis, he's not much better than a FLEX option in standard fantasy football leagues.  Rice was the sixth-overall fantasy draft pick according to FOXSports.com's average draft position data.  If it's any consolation, Bernard Pierce isn't doing much to steal Rice's job anytime soon. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 6 Studs and Duds 31932109 Dud - Austin Pettis vs. Texans Dud+-+Austin+Pettis+vs.+Texans Fantasy Football

The Rams scored two first-half touchdowns against the Texans.  Much to the chagrin of Jared Cook owners, tight ends Lance Kendricks and Cory Harkey both scored from the Texans' two yard line.  The last few weeks, red zone targets inside the five yard line have belonged to Austin Pettis.  Instead, the wide receiver caught one pass on one target for 12 yards on Sunday.  It was a little bit of a letdown, but Sam Bradford (23 FP) does like to spread the wealth. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 6 Studs and Duds 31932113 Dud - Jimmy Graham vs. Patriots Dud+-+Jimmy+Graham+vs.+Patriots Fantasy Football

For the first time since his rookie season, Jimmy Graham finished a game without a reception (six targets).  The Patriots' Aqib Talib smothered the Saints' tight end during the first half and the rest of the Pats' defense held him in check after Talib was forced to leave due to injury.  Graham entered Week 6 with four straight games where he posted 100-or-more receiving yards with five touchdowns during that stretch.  Hat tip to the Patriots, but Graham is going off next game. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 6 Studs and Duds 31932117 Dud - Calvin Johnson vs. Browns Dud+-+Calvin+Johnson+vs.+Browns Fantasy Football

If Calvin Johnson is active, he's in your fantasy starting lineup.  It's that simple.  However, due a combination of Joe Haden and a sore knee, Johnson's three receptions (eight targets) for 25 yards were season-lows.  He has four touchdowns on the season, one behind Joseph Fauria for the team lead. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 6 Studs and Duds 31932118 Stud - Nick Foles vs. Buccaneers Stud+-+Nick+Foles+vs.+Buccaneers Fantasy Football

If this was Nick Foles' opening act to try and take over the Eagles' starting quarterback gig, it was a nice resume builder.  He finished with 296 passing yards and four total touchdowns with no turnovers and a 133.3 QB rating.  Foles is worthy of a waiver claim. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 6 Studs and Duds 31932119 Stud - Dallas Clark vs. Packers Stud+-+Dallas+Clark+vs.+Packers Fantasy Football

Week 6 saw the 34-year-old Dallas Clark finish a game with 80-plus receiving yards and a touchdown for the first time since September 9, 2010 (Colts).  It's his second game with more than 80 receiving yards this season as he tries to temporarily replace Dennis Pitta at tight end. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 6 Studs and Duds 31932120 Stud - Justin Blackmon vs. Broncos Stud+-+Justin+Blackmon+vs.+Broncos Fantasy Football

The Jacksonville Jaguars managed to cover the historic point spread against the Broncos thanks in large part to the effort of Justin Blackmon.  In his second game back following a four-game suspension to start the season, the team's WR1 caught 14 passes on 20 targets (20!!!) for 190 yards.  It's also worth noting he did all of this with WR2 Cecil Shorts out of the game with a sprained shoulder. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 6 Studs and Duds 31932121 Stud - Vernon Davis vs. Cardinals Stud+-+Vernon+Davis+vs.+Cardinals Fantasy Football

The Arizona Cardinals' defense is awful at covering opposing tight ends.  They allow nearly 13 fantasy points per game to opposing TE (28th in NFL).  Well, Vernon Davis posted 171 yards with two touchdowns in the first half against the Cardinals.  That's the good news.  The bad news - if there is any - was Davis only caught one pass for nine yards the entire second half.  Still, 30 fantasy points from your tight end is Rob Gronkowski-esque.  Remember that guy?! - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 6 Studs and Duds 31932129 Joseph Fauria's Evolution of Dance Joseph+Fauria%27s+Evolution+of+Dance Fantasy Football

Sometimes we forget sports are fun.  Thank goodness guys like Joseph Fauria are around to make us all laugh.  The Lions' rookie tight end out of UCLA has quite the six-week stat line:


Seven receptions | 66 Yards | 5 Touchdowns | 3 Touchdowns vs. Browns in Week 6


However, as great as the six points are for the Lions, fans are treated to a vast array of post-touchdown dance moves. Enjoy the rest of Week 6's Fantasy Football Studs n' Duds ... - Ryan Fowler
