FanDuel NFL Snake Draft Rankings: Week 6

Fantasy sports have come a long way since their inception.

Gathering with friends and drafting the perfect team was -- and still is -- a big part of fantasy sports. But FanDuel has done its part in changing how we play and think about a particular slate of sports games.

And guess what? They’re going back to the classics and bringing snake drafts to the forefront of the daily fantasy scene.

Each week, you can hop into a live fantasy football draft and pick your six-player team against the rest of your league. No salary cap involved. Just draft.

You can read more about the strategy behind daily fantasy NFL snake drafts, but here’s a jumpstart for the upcoming slate.

Daily Fantasy Football Snake Draft Rankings

Here’s how numberFire’s projections rank the field in a head-to-head, three-entry, and six-entry draft. (Be sure to check the projections throughout the week for updates.)

These rankings compare each player’s projection to the replacement level of his position. In a head-to-head draft, no more than two quarterbacks can be drafted, so every passer is compared to the QB2 in terms of weekly projections. For running backs, up to six running backs can be drafted in a two-entry draft, so they're all compared to the RB6 in projections to see the biggest gaps in value.

Here's how the Week 6 rankings look across various draft sizes. (Snake draft position rank refers to a player's raw projection rank, so the RB3 is expected for the third-most FanDuel points among running backs.)
