The Arizona Cardinals and New York Jets put the finishing touches on fantasy football Week 6 so let's get to the storylines:

-Cardinals running back David Johnson is some kind of silly after he rushed for 3!!!! touchdowns Monday night as part of his 22-carry for 111 yard outing.  Johnson also caught 3 passes for 27 yards as he was a PPR gem yet again.  So far Johnson has made back every penny of his top three fantasy football ADP this season and after the disaster that was Round 1 pick a year ago, this is no small thing. 

-Age knows no bounds for WR Larry Fitzgerald who caught 6 balls for 49 yards.  The Cards mainly relied on the ground in this one but in PPR formats, Fitz still made the grade.  Unfortunately both Michael Floyd (2 catches) and John Brown (4 catches) remain MIA.  Both the latter two can be released outright. 

-The Jets might finally have reached the end of the line with struggling Ryan Fitzpatrick who was simply brutal last night.  Fitzpatrick completed 16-of-31 balls for 174 yards with 0 TD and 1 INT which led to Geno Smith getting in late.  With the Jets' season spiraling at 1-5, there is no reason not to make a move here, despite how terrible a player Smith is.  What we can say for sure is that Fitz's 2016 career-year was nothing but a fluke. 

-After a monster first two weeks of the season where he looked like one of the best backs in the league, Jets RB Matt Forte has been a liablity to his owners since.  Last night was another example as he rushed for just 19 yards on 9 carries while catching 1 pass for 3 more yards.  The Jets O-line is terrible and Forte is being dragged down with it.  Also his crazy usage the first two weeks at an advanced age might have robbed him of some bust as well.  He needs to be downgraded in all formats.
