Derrick Henry likely settled a lot of fantasy matchups.

If you invested heavily in AFC South players in fantasy football, you likely had a very enjoyable Week 6.

With the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans each exploding on offense to produce one the games of the season so far, players on both offenses delivered huge fantasy scores that will have had a decisive impact on a plethora of fantasy matchups.

The Indianapolis Colts being forced into a comeback effort against a miserable Cincinnati Bengals defense will have made fantasy owners who put faith in Frank Reich’s offense very happy, with Philip Rivers successfully leading a turnaround and connecting with a tight end who should intrigue those in need of help at the position.

Week 6 also indicated that some much-needed clarity could soon be coming to the Detroit Lions’ backfield after their running game dominated in the road victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Atlanta Falcons finally got their first win of a miserable campaign and did so by leaning on a veteran receiver who produced in a devastating manner to ease the frustration of fantasy players disappointed by his early-season efforts.

Here we look at some of the best performances from Week 6 and assess their fantasy football impact.
