When Matthew Berry left ESPN to join NBC Sports, it was exciting for fantasy football nerds. We finally got our moment in the spotlight, wound into the NBC Sunday Night Football contests. We made it, kids!
But that wasn’t enough. Oh no. Matthew had to get Vice President Kamala Harris’s husband, Second Gentlemen Douglas Emhoff, on the “Fantasy Happy Hour” to discuss his love of fantasy football and how he’s passed that love on to his son.
Next up, King Charles III?
It’s not every day the White House calls, but when they do, you answer! Turns out @SecondGentleman is a big Fantasy Football player (he’s 5-0 in his 12 tm lg, has LJax & Andrews). It’s so much fun when prominent people discuss & promote FF. @peacock @NBCSEdgeFB #FFHappyHour pic.twitter.com/L8x1xn4XPu— Matthew Berry (@MatthewBerryTMR) October 13, 2022

Building a winning fantasy football team can sometimes feel like an impossible task.

After five weeks of action, he gives you the five most important metrics to follow for the rest of the season in a thread—and he hates threads. Cody is a true man of the people.

Title Belt Articles of Week 6
Suppose you’re not already streaming quarterbacks this season in at least a few leagues; congratulations. However, it's unavoidable for those less fortunate, especially managers invested in the Miami Dolphins quarterback room. The fine folks over at FantraxHQ have you covered with this article from Meng Song breaking down streaming options for Week 6.
If you’re a typical fantasy manager, you spend most of the week between games pouring over your line-ups, wondering what to do. Half of your team is on injured reserve, and now we have bye weeks.
Who do I start?
Who do I sit?
“If we don’t learn about the past, we are doomed to repeat it.” Unfortunately, that is true in life and fantasy football.
It’s essential to look back and see if trends are emerging; maybe players are showing a flash we should keep an eye on, or just to remind ourselves of how dumb we were last week and try not to do it again. Jeremy Popielarz does just that every week in his “Fantasy Football Takeaways” article over at FTN Fantasy. This week he reminisces about Geno Smith, looks ahead for David Montgomery, looks at some emerging handcuffs, and much more.
If you want a leg up on your opponents? Do you have league-winner ambitions? Well, look no further. Mike Faiella’s specialty is finding diamonds in the rough that can propel your fantasy squads to championship heights. This week he reflects on his calls from Week 5 and tells you why Jimmy Garrapolo, Cam Akers, and a surprise tight end should be placed firmly in your Week 6 line-ups.
