Offensive line ranks: Which RBs will pop or flop in Week 6?

Freeman vs. Lindsay debate settled? (0:51)

With Royce Freeman and Phillip Lindsay playing an almost identical amount of snaps, Stephania Bell discusses who's more explosive. (0:51)

The fantasy football world has lagged behind when it comes to effectively measuring the impact blocking has on fantasy production, so last year, I devised a grading system that uses multiple advanced metrics to project how blocking matchups will impact fantasy football performance in the upcoming week's contests. The details of the system can be found here.

The entire list of the Week 6 overall matchup grades are posted below, along with a detailed look at how those blocking grades could impact certain start-sit decisions this week. Subjects here include whether LeSean McCoy or Kenyan Drake can repeat their season-best performances from last week, if it is time to trust the Broncos' or Patriots' running backs, and how to best value the Eagles players in their Thursday night matchup against the Giants.

The Eagles present one of the toughest quandaries for fantasy managers in Week 6, as they may find it difficult to put too much trust in an inconsistent offense facing a short-week road trip against a divisional rival.
