Top 50 RBs in Week 6 fantasy football PPR leagues [UPDATED]

We have quite a few notable names sidelined with byes during Week 6, and injuries could shake things up further. We break down your top 50 options in Week 6 fantasy football PPR leagues.

Week 6 of the 2019 NFL season has arrived, and Christian McCaffrey is coming off another historic performance. It’s going to be difficult not to rank him atop the RBs on any given week. Dalvin Cook’s consistency will also keep him near the top on a weekly basis, but the bounce-back spot for ‘Zeke was too good to overlook in Week 6.

Leonard Fournette’s workhorse role, and growing role in the passing game also has him on the rise. David Johnson is a big name to watch this week. He’s in a home run spot at home against the Falcons, but if battling a back injury. If he doesn’t play, Chase Edmonds could be one of the better values this season.

Week 6 brings byes for the Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts, and Oakland Raiders. That sidelines some quality names, including Frank Gore, David Montgomery and Tarik Cohen, Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines, and Josh Jacobs.

UPDATED: Todd Gurley ruled out leaves Malcolm Brown is a great spot.
