Resources: Yahoo survival pool pick distribution • SurvivorGrid.com Week 6’s biggest killer: Pittsburgh Steelers losing to Miami Dolphins (37.06 percent) Week 6’s biggest winner: Buffalo Bills over San Francisco 49ers (26.36 percent) Total Week 6 eliminations: 41.1 percent of remaining entries Perfect entries remaining on Yahoo: 55,899
Over a third of us zeroed in on last Sunday’s Steelers-Dolphins matchup as an easy way to skate through the weekend. Over a third of us were summarily eliminated.
And that’s why survival leagues can be so frustrating. It seemed like we had an easy weekend ahead of us. The Steelers were elite, the Dolphins were decidedly not and we’d let the rest of the schedule spring a few upsets to whittle down the nation’s survival league pools.

Shuffle Up season is here, my friends. Here’s the idea — how would we rank fantasy players if the season were starting right now?
A few caveats up front. The prices are unscientific in nature, merely used as a way to compare players within their position. I do not compare prices outside of position — a price of a quarterback is only meant to be considered within his positional class. I am generally far less expectant with injury-returning players, so don’t be surprised when I like them less than you do.
Every Shuffle Up is done from scratch. I think it’s counterproductive to justify an old, dated list. I want my current opinions. I considered a modified PPR scoring system for the field players. And of course, you’ll disagree with plenty on this list — that’s why we have a game in the first place.

Hunter Henry: He’s scored in three straight games and has averaged 72.5 yards over his past four (a season’s pace of 1,160), which is highly impressive for a rookie playing a position that usually takes a while to learn. Of some concern is Antonio Gates ran more routes than Henry last week (22 to 19), but the rookie is seeing far more snaps, and Gates has admitted he’s still playing injured, something that’s likely to be an issue all season for the 36-year-old. San Diego has a shaky defense and can’t run the ball, so they figure to be passing quite a bit with no clear No. 1 receiver. Henry sure looks like the real deal, so he should be treated as a top-10 tight end right now, at minimum. He’s a must-start Week 7 against a Falcons defense that’s allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to tight ends this year.
