Week 6 was a weird week for fantasy purposes, as a lot of the usual suspects were held to rather pedestrian numbers. The day was easily highlighted by Derrick Henry whose 212 yards and 2 TD on the ground were an absurd display of dominance against an overmatched Houston defense.
Hopefully you had Derrick Henry this week.
If not, hopefully you weren’t playing against him.
264 total yards & 2 TDs. https://t.co/cPGZG7aNBf

Through the air, Sundays leader was none other than rookie WR Justin Jefferson, who brought in a ton of yards during garbage time along with two scores and a two-point conversion to boot. Rob Gronkowski returned to fantasy relevance with 18.8 points, though the renaissance might be short lived as he admitted after the game that he’s dealing with an arm injury.
Speaking of injuries. we lost Zach Ertz and Miles Sanders to injuries that will require MRIs on Monday, and they didn’t look good. Mark Ingram went down with an ankle injury and didn’t return, Raheem Mostert did the same, and Pittsburgh lost its’ young budding star on defense, Devin Bush to a torn ACL that will keep him out for the rest of the season. It was kind of a weird week, but a few games came down to the wire and overall who can complain about a Sunday chock full of football?
