Fantasy Football 2023: Week 6 RB Rankings

As we roll into Week 6, these RB rankings will be your savior after an injury in Week 5. Khalil Herbert, James Conner, and De’Von Achane all suffered substantial injuries. Week 6 didn’t look bad as far as bye weeks, but Week 5 didn’t want us to have an easy week for setting lineups.

Even Though last week was filled with injuries we saw some promise in the Cardinals backfield. Emari Demercado should be a top waiver going into Week 6 and D’Onta Foreman is once again getting a starting job.

Running Back Notes:

  • Let’s start with Foreman. He is my RB34 for Week 6. The Bears will be without Herbert, Roschon Johnson and Travis Homer this week. Foreman hasn’t played much this year, but I expect him to get a bulk of the carries. Last season when Christian McCaffrey left, Foreman had four top-15 finishes. The Bears run game was starting to heat up and I believe Foreman will fill that volume and produce.
  • Demercado is the top running back add of the week. He is also my RB27 on the week. Conner is on the IR so he will miss at least four games. But, what is special about Demercado is that he was on the field the entire game after Conner went down. Keaontay Ingram and Corey Clement did not see the field once. So, it looks like Demercado will be the workhorse while Conner is out. He had 10 carries for 45 yards and a touchdown. He does have a tough matchup against the Rams, but the Cardinals have been surprising this year against a tough defense.
  • Jonathan Taylor made his debut last week. He was carried by Zack Moss, which I saw coming. Taylor just got back to practice and it will take him a few games to get on his feet. Though I still have Moss ahead of Taylor this week. Moss is my RB20 and Taylor is my RB25. Moss has been so good this year and I don’t see them just benching him for Taylor. I think this will be a split backfield going forward, and the Colts will play the hot hand. Taylor is ranked as my RB25 based on his talent, but I would much rather start Moss against the Jaguars this week. The Jaguars are also the sixth-ranked toughest defense against fantasy running backs this year. Only giving up 12.4 fantasy points per game.
  • Lastly, Tyjae Spears is nearing more and more to take over the backfield from Derrick Henry. The snaps are just about split between the two. Spears played 31 snaps last week and Henry played 37. But it was Spears who snagged a 19-yard rushing touchdown. Henry did get six more carries than Spears but only had nine more yards. Spears has a sneaky start this week against the Ravens.
