Week 6 fantasy football cheat sheet

(Each week, the PFF Fantasy cheat sheet will have all the relevant fantasy football content for the week in one place for you to keep track and review as needed as you prepare for that week in fantasy.)

My brother’s mad at me. He thinks I made an unfair trade.

See, I have George Kittle and Delanie Walker. After Week 1, I thought I was a genius for stashing Walker. Lately, though, he’s been awful. I was running out of use for him even as a backup. On the other hand, he still has name value, and this week is an awful situation for tight ends. My brother has Trey Burton (bye) and Chris Herndon (might not be back yet). My brother-in-law had Darren Waller (bye) and Evan Engram (injured and might not play). Another guy has only Jason Witten and Tyler Eifert. Another has only O.J. Howard.

So a tight end with a pulse has value, even if that pulse (in Walker’s case) is faint. Gerald Everett could only go to one team on the waiver wire (Witten/Eifert guy got him). So early Wednesday morning, after Everett was out of play, I discussed a Walker trade with the other managers. And my brother-in-law, who trusts Waller the rest of the way and was desperate for just this week, bit, and traded me Engram for Walker straight up.

In a vacuum, that’s obviously a massively one-sided deal. But if my brother-in-law was never going to use Engram (and he said as much) and was desperate for this week, well, the value in his equation shifts.

Is that an unfair trade? I don’t think so. My brother-in-law is happy. I’m happy. My brother, who didn’t want to trade my Calvin Ridley for Walker and Corey Davis (not that I blame him) is the only one who is unhappy. But if the traders are happy, then that’s all that matters.

On to the Week 6 advice.
