Week 6 Fantasy Football Icebergs and Week 7 Forecast

Play episode

Born and raised in Miami, Florida. I used to play baseball for a living; I walked a lot and didn't hit enough. Now I write words for a living and drop absolute bombs every Sunday for my men's league team.

The Sopranos is more groundbreaking than it is good.

Will ye’ be lookin’ fer a Fantasy Football victory this week, laddie? Best to avoid the dreaded iceberg waiting to send your team to Davy Jones’ Locker. Here are Week 6’s icebergs that sank thousands of teams across the seven seas, as well as a Week 7 forecast for the days ahead.

Cooper Kupp- 4.1 points (PPR)

Cooper Kupp has had one of the highest floor’s in all of Fantasy Football since he entered the league and instantly became Jared Goff’s most trusted target. Something was off between them last week, though. The 49ers defense is excellent, to be fair, but 3 catches on 9 targets for 11 yards? That’s not the Goff-Kupp connection Fantasy owners have come to rely on. He even dropped a touchdown, adding even more salt to the wound.

Iceberg Forecast

Well, the 9 targets were a good sign. Kupp always has Jared Goff’s attention, that’s for sure. Unfortunately though, this tandem will have to rebound against one of the better defensive units in the league: the Bears. Kupp has only had one other game in which he’s scored under 12 points this season, and it was all the way back in Week 1. I expect him to rebound, to a degree. I wouldn’t anticipate a 9/107/1 stat line like he put up against Buffalo in Week 3, but you can safely assume he’ll get his handful of catches, and maybe a score, against a tough secondary. The Week 7 forecast says he’s no iceberg.

Ben Roethlisberger- 10.98 points

Big Ben! What happened to you?! Roethlisberger had been a model of consistency heading into his Week 6 matchup against the Browns. He had thrown for at least 225 yards and 2 TDs in every game, against just one INT all season. Then the Steelers boat raced the Browns early, which all-but eliminated Roethlisberger’s involvement. He finished 14 of 22 for 162 yards and 1 score, which is often what his stat line looks like at the half. But hey, this looked like a Varsity vs. JV game, so why have your 38-year-old QB waste energy and put himself at risk by continuing to throw the ball? Great for Pittsburgh, horrible for his Fantasy owners.

Iceberg Forecast

The Steelers will not have the luxury of resting their stars in this week’s game against the high-powered Titans. This team has the horses to run with Pittsburgh, so Big Ben will have to air it out like he usually does; potentially even more. He was absolutely an iceberg in Week 6, but at least it was due to lack of usage and not a poor performance. Roethlisberger has had it going all season long. Expect that to continue in what could be the best game of the week and a shootout.

Odell Beckham Jr.- 4.5 points (PPR)

That Baker Mayfield really fucking sucks sometimes, huh? The Browns have an elite running game and elite pass catchers. These things usually result in very good QB play, given everything the defense has to account for. But nooooope. Ol’ Baker still manages to not find Odell Beckham Jr. consistently, leading to his paltry 2/25/0 performance against the aforementioned Steelers. OBJ broke the backs of a lot of Fantasy Football teams this past week.

Iceberg Forecast

Odell has been all over the place in terms of scoring this season. He and Baker just can’t seem to get on the same page consistently, resulting in an enormous waste of arguably the most talented receiver in the NFL. OBJ also scored in the single digits in Weeks 1 and 3, and responded both times with his best game of the season to that point. Does he keep up that trend? The Steelers D is certainly better than the Bengals unit he’s facing this week. There is a chance for another breakout (this is still Odell Beckham Jr. we’re talking about). However, due to circumstances out of his control, there is also a chance he is an iceberg once again. The Week 7 forecast says to sail ahead, but be cautious.

Mike Evans- 2 points (PPR)

The Tampa Bay-Green Bay game was just really weird. It was a blowout in favor of the Bucs, yet somehow their top wide receiver caught 1 pass for 10 yards. It’s really hard to predict Bruce Arians’s strategies week-to-week. His game plan was clearly to run the ball down the Packers’ throats, as he did with Ronald Jones II all afternoon. While other pass catchers still put up decent numbers despite the run-heavy offense, Evans was stuck in Tom Brady’s friend-zone for some reason. Weird.

Iceberg Forecast

Again, Bruce Arians is a tough nut to crack, but my money is on the Buccaneers airing it out against Las Vegas this Sunday. Evans has established himself as Brady’s favorite red zone target, despite last week’s dismal performance. Do not be surprised if he finds pay dirt once again against the Raiders, as he has in every other game this season. His ankle injury is worth monitoring; he’s been limited in practice all week. But if he’s healthy for Week 7, start him confidently. Mike Evans will not be an iceberg.

Aaron Rodgers- 3.8 points

Well that was unexpected. The matchup between arguably the two best QBs of this generation was a one-sided affair, as Brady and the Bucs ran all over Green Bay while the Bucs D shut down the Packers’ high-powered offense. Rodgers, who had been playing at an MVP level all season, looked like a rookie out there; the man threw 2 picks and completed 45.7% of his passes for 160 yards. This was easily one of the worst statistical games of his career, and many Fantasy Football owners paid the price.

Iceberg Forecast

This has to be a blip, right? It’s Aaron Rodgers! Yeah, it’s definitely just a blip. The Pack head to Houston to face their less-than-stellar D this Sunday. The Texans might be 1-5 this season, but their offense has averaged 33 PPG over the last two weeks. Rodgers will not be able to have as bad a game as he had against Tampa Bay if the Packers want to get out of Houston with a W. Davante Adams should also be more involved. Shit, every player on offense should be more involved. Aaron Rodgers and Packers will not look as bad as they did in Week 6 for the rest of the season. My Week 7 forecast says to start Rodgers and don’t think twice. He won’t be an iceberg.

  • One thing I have actually noticed is that there are plenty of beliefs regarding the financial institutions intentions when talking about foreclosed. One misconception in particular is the fact the bank wants your house. The financial institution wants your hard earned money, not your house. They want the bucks they gave you along with interest. Staying away from the bank will only draw a foreclosed summary. Thanks for your post.
