Here’s my Week 6 IDP rankings.

.

1. Lawrence Timmons (PIT) vs. CLE:  Averaging 12 tackles per game
2. LaRon Landry (WAS) vs. Indy:  10.4 tackles per game. Peyton will keep him busy.
3.  Bernard Pollard (HOU) vs. KC:  36 tackles in his last three games.
4. Stephen Tulloch (TEN) @ JAX:  38 tackles in his last three games.
5. James Harrison (PIT) vs. CLE:  With Colt McCoy starting, Harrison licking his chops.
6. Patrick Willis (SF) vs. Oak:  Tackles are down, but always a threat for a monster game.     
7. DeMeco Ryans (HOU) vs. KC:  32 tackles in his last three games.
8. Chad Greenway (MIN) vs. DAL:  At least 8 tackles every game this year. 
9. London Fletcher (WAS) vs. INDY:  46 tackles in five games.
10. Jerod Mayo (NE) vs. BAL:  16 tackles last week against Miami. Will be busy v. Ravens.
11. D.J. Williams (DEN) vs. NYJ:  25 tackles past two weeks. Jets run a ton.
12. Ray Lewis (BAL) @ NE:  13 tackles vs. NE in wildcard game last year. He’ll get up for this one.
13. Brian Cushing (HOU) vs. KC:  Should get better as he gets into game shape.
14. DeMarcus Ware (DAL) @ MIN:  There’s blood in the water with Favre. Should abuse McKinney.
15. Shaun Phillips SD) @ St. Louis:  Phillips has 18 tackles, 6 sacks, and an INT.

Here’s my Week 6 team defense rankings.

.

1.  Pittsburgh vs. Cleveland
2. New York Giants vs. Detroit
3. San Diego @ St. Louis
4. Tennessee @ Jacksonville
5. Miami @ Green Bay
6. Chicago vs. Seattle
7. San Francisco vs. Oakland
8. Seattle @ Chicago
9. New Orleans @ Tampa Bay
10. New York Jets @ Denver
11. Dallas @ Minnesota
12. Oakland @ San Francisco
13.  Baltimore @ New England
14. Green Bay vs. Miami
15. Philadelphia vs. Atlanta

.
Inside the numbers:

  • Pittsburgh is taking on Cleveland with Colt McCoy making his first start and Peyton Hillis banged up. This could look like a crime scene.
  • The Giants have 19 sacks, have allowed a league low 244.6 yards per game, and just 13 points the past two weeks against Chicago and Houston.
  • The Chargers has 18 sacks and are taking on the Rams, who have lost their top two WRs this season.
  • The Titans lead the league with 22 sacks.
  • It’s not that I think Miami has an elite defense, but they could like like they do against the injury ravaged Packers who will be playing with out Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Grant, and Jermichael Finley.
  • It’s kind of a crapshoot this week with three of the bottom-feeders (Arizona, Buffalo, and Carolina) on bye.

2. Sebastian Janikowski @ SF:  Has 11 FGs, Niners have allowed 10.
3. Nate Kaeding @ STL:  Has 6 FGs, Rams have allowed 11. Expect a lot of PATs as well.
4. Adam Vinatieri @ WAS:  Has 8 FGs, Skins have allowed 10.
5. Stephen Gostkowski vs. BAL:  Has 4 FGs, Ravens have allowed 10.
6. Jeff Reed vs. CLE:  Has 8 FGs, Browns have allowed 9.
7. Lawrence Tynes vs. DET:  5 FGs, Lions have allowed 5.
8. Ryan Longwell vs. DAL:  Just 3 FGs, but Dallas has allowed 8.
9. Matt Bryant @ PHI: Tied for league lead with 12 FGs, Eagles have allowed 6.
10.  Nick Folk @ DEN:  Tied for lead with 12 FGs, Broncos have allowed 6.

Here’s my Week 6 tight end rankings.  Keep in mind that Arizona, Buffalo, Carolina, and Cincinnati are on bye.

.
1. Antonio Gates @ St. Louis
2. Vernon Davis vs. Oakland
3. Zach Miller @ San Francisco
4. Dallas Clark @ Washington
5. Tony Gonzalez @ Philadelphia
6. Dustin Keller @ Denver
7. Brent Celek vs. Atlanta
8. Aaron Hernandez vs. Baltimore
9. Chris Cooley vs. Indianapolis
10. Marcedes Lewis vs. Tennessee
11. Jason Witten @ Minnesota
12. Kellen Winslow vs. New Orleans
13. Heath Miller vs. Cleveland
14. Greg Olsen vs. Seattle
15. Tony Moeaki @ Houston
.
Inside the numbers:

  • Vernon Davis finally topped 80 yards (104 to be exact) for the first time this year. He scored in his second straight game. He faces Oakland, who has allowed ten passing TDs (three to TEs) so far.
  • Zach Miller has scored a TD in three straight games. He plays the Niners, who has allowed nine TDs (three to TEs).
  • Brent Celek has scored in two straight games. Bump him up to #5 if Kolb plays as they have a great rapport.
  • Life without Randy Moss should mean more work for Aaron Hernandez.
  • Now that Big Ben is back, Heath Miller should finally post some decent fantasy numbers.
  • Assuming Jay Cutler is under center, Greg Olsen and the Chicago passing game can get back on track. He had 10 catches in weeks three and four for the Bears before being shut out thanks to Todd Collins horrific play.
  • Visanthe Shiancoe went from the first option to the third option in the passing game thanks to Randy Moss’ arrival and the way he opened up the offense for Percy Harvin. Factor in Adrian Peterson, and Shiancoe is a questionable TE1 until he proves otherwise. He doesn’t crack the top 15 this week.
