Fantasy football 2011 | Chinstrap Ninjas fantasy football contest Week 5 results, Week 6 lineups

Joel Dreessen, Benjarvus Green-Ellis and Matt Cassel this week? Exactly as we predicted it. But as crazy as the scoring was, the fantasy football masters in our weekly contest still put up points.

As usual, feel free to read on to find out what happened in the contest last week, but don’t forget to post your Week 6 lineups in the comments.

Team Name Here and 69ers each played Adrian Peterson this week. AP is playing unconscious right now and unless something dramatic happens I don’t think anyone could argue against starting him every week in this contest.

However, only 69ers and Team Name Here made the play this week. With the five-point bounty, 69ers vaulted to the top of the overall leaderboard. Team Name Here moved into sole possession of third place with a five-point increase.

There were several plays this week that went off the beaten path. Brandon played Jay Cutler at quarterback and Eric Decker at wide receiver. MoHawks played Julio Jones at WR and Brandon Pettigrew at TE.

Wide receiver provided our most varied starts. Purple Coconuts, our second-place team overall, foresaw the potential rout in Pittsburg and played Antonio Brown. Cartisimo played Nate Washington.

At tight end, Dr. Zoidberg‘s play of Jermaine Gresham was smart because of the matchup. Visanthe Shiancoe, started by Krause, will be a threat if McNabb can get him the ball. Shiancoe has the most Vikings targets in the last two weeks.

Top performers for Week 5:

Quarterbacks

Matt Cassel‘s shockingly good play launched him to the top of the quarterback rankings this week. Cassel completed 21-of-29 for 257 yards and four TD passes. He did not throw a pick, the one thing that kept Ben Roethlisberger from taking the top spot. Cassel finished with 27.48 points. Roethlisberger’s 5-TD game earned him 27.12 points.

Running backs

One player has benefited from Donovan McNabb‘s shaky tenure as the starting QB in Minnesota. Adrian Peterson has been busy this season and it has made many of his fantasy owners winners. Peterson rushed 29 times for 122 yards and three touchdowns on Sunday to amass 30.2 points. Runner-up Benjarvus Green-Ellis had a special game of his own, rewarding owners who tentatively played him as a bye-week fill-in. The Law Firm’s 136-yard, 2-TD game earned him 26.9 points.

Wide receivers

Dwayne Bowe had one of those Dwayne Bowe games, catching seven passes for 128 yards and two touchdowns. He scored 24.8 points. Runner-up Pierre Garcon seems to be a favorite target for Curtis Painter. Our No. 2 receiver scored 24.5 points after a 125-yard, 2-TD game.

Tight ends

Targets were distributed interestingly in Houston without Andre Johnson. Joel Dreessen‘s performance caught quite a few people by surprise. He had a 56-yard catch and went for 56 yards in his four other catches to finish 5-112-1. He scored 17.2 fantasy points. Vernon Davis finished second to Dreessen. Davis got into the end zone twice but only caught three passes for 39 yards. He finished with 15.9 fantasy points.

In the comments, post who you think will be the best quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end in Week 6. Remember, only the best player at each position is worth five points. But there are massive bonus points for getting more than one pick correct. Good luck.

    Four teams posting two leaders for the first pairs of the season with one game to go and I doubt that any QB or TE tonight will surpass their numbers. But then again, what do I know….
