Fantasy Football Week 6 Automated Insights Recap

12 team half ppr Yahoo league - 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 W/R/T, 1 K, 1 DST

Tyreek Hill is back and caught two touchdown passes, but the Kansas City Chiefs lost their second game in a row. They play the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football to kick off Week 7.

Hunter Henry returned to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 6 and caught two touchdown passes! A much needed boost to the tight end position but Henry was started in just 15% of Yahoo leagues in Week 6.

However, when one door opens, another door closes. The Seahawks and Fantasy owners lost TE Will Dissly for the season to an Achilles injury.

On Monday Night Football the Green Bay Packers turned to Jamaal Williams at RB, just one week after Aaron Jones scored four touchdowns. I don't know how to explain that one!
