RandBall's Week 6 Fantasy Football Challenge

  • Updated: October 10, 2013 - 12:12 AM

Week 6 of the Page 2 Fantasy Football Challenge is upon us. Each week, a guest picker takes aim at the Star Tribune’s Michael Rand. The only players off-limits are those selected by the previous week’s guest picker. This week’s guest is Tom Linnemann, a former St. John’s quarterback and the latest to answer Rand’s challenge. They will go head-to-head, with the usual caveat: Rand is not allowed to pick anyone ranked in the top 10 in the NFL.com weekly scoring projections by position:

tom linnemann’S WEEK 6 FANTASY PICKS

QB: Tony Romo, Cowboys

NFL.com fantasy projection: No. 7

Matchup: Redskins

I’m in Vegas this weekend, so I’ll play the hot hand. With Dallas facing a Washington defense that allows 9.2 yards per pass attempt, Romo should have a field day. Or he’ll implode. Either way it’s fun to watch.

RB: Arian Foster, Texans

NFL.com fantasy projection: No. 17

Matchup: Rams

The best way to avoid Matt Schaub’s pick-6s is to give it to Foster every single play. Foster might as well take the snaps directly. Seriously, stay over there, Matt. Shhh. Two touchdowns.

WR: Dez Bryant, Cowboys

NFL.com fantasy projection: No. 28

Matchup: Redskins

Double down! If you’re trusting one player to win, go with the “elite player who has allegedly gotten into a fight with Lil’ Wayne” exacta. Sixty percent of the time, it works every time.
