Week 6 Lineup Rankings

The frustrating and completely unpredictable 2011-12 season continues, and here I am with another stab at weekly-league lineup rankings for Week 6. There are plenty of players who are bringing injury issues into the week, but at least we saw several return on Sunday. It looks safe to play Ray Allen, Dirk Nowitzki, Ryan Anderson and MarShon Brooks this week (although Brooks didn’t step back into the starting lineup Sunday). Meanwhile, fantasy owners still have to be concerned about the likes of Carmelo Anthony, Ty Lawson, Kevin Martin and Luol Deng. There’s also been some rough injury news for many players fantasy owners have been counting on, such as Andrea Bargnani, Rajon Rondo and Andrew Bogut. It’s rough seas out there. Hopefully these rankings (compiled Sunday night) can help you make some decisions. Stay glued to Damn Lies & Statistics throughout the day on Monday as we live-blog the latest news throughout the day. Best of luck in Week 6!

The format for these rankings: Standard 9-cat leagues of 12 teams or less. Players ranked are solid weekly starts, while players unranked are not ideal, and should only be monitored.

Games in bold are the second of back-to-backs, while games in bold and italics are the third of back-to-back-t0-backs.

Rankings take into account schedule strength and injury issues.
