Welcome to our Week 6 main slate breakdown. We're into October and conference play is in full swing. On top of that, weather is starting to play a factor with rain expected at several of the main slate's venues Saturday, so look for run-heavy games in the Big Ten matchups and elsewhere. Below I'll give a small primer on the slate itself before delving into the weekly cheat sheet and my position-by-position breakdown. As always, you can direct any questions you may have to the comment section and I'll respond as soon as possible.
This is the first week in recent memory where it doesn't feel like going after the most expensive quarterbacks on the board is a lineup prerequisite. Will Grier ($10,400), Kyler Murray ($10,200) and Dwayne Haskins ($9,800) are all fine plays that won't bust this week, but there's reason to believe they won't reach their respective ceilings, either. Grier is the safest of the bunch and is priced accordingly, while Kyler Murray will be facing his toughest test to date in a rivalry game that always goes a bit sideways. As for Haskins, we saw that he was mortal last week in Happy Valley, and while he won't be reduced to throwing screen after screen this week, he's still facing a tough Indiana defense. With that, I'm likely to go after the mid-tier quarterbacks this week. I mention several below, and also think that Clemson's Trevor Lawrence ($8,700) and Wake Forest's Sam Hartman are worth
