2023 Power Rankings - Week 6

Rank (LW) Logo Team Record Rating Comment
1 (2) FW 4-1 121.88 The Pistons destroyed the Blizzard (who was undefeated) by 72 points for the third largest victory of the season and second highest point total. Fort Wayne made the right call by putting in D.J. Moore for his unlikely breakout of 59 points beating his opponent by 50 points. This comes just 4 weeks after he played Tyreek Hill who beat him by 50 points in Week 1.
2 (6) SH 3-2 103.05 The champs put on a show with the Surge that included 323 points in the contest. David Montgomery got things going scoring on a 42 yard TD on the Lions' third offensive play. Tyreek Hill had another huge receiving day adding 181 yards to his season total of 651 yards through 5 games. Josh Allen had a 44 point day in London which didn't prove to be enough for the Bills to win.
3 (1) LAB 4-1 99.50 The Bombers fall from grace may have started this past week. For the first four weeks of the season, they had the best record for the league. With the loss, they have dropped down to #2. Lamar had an awful game turning the ball over twice and not accounting for a touchdown. The rest of the team struggled in that department too with the only TD coming from Keenan's carryover.
4 (4) CTR 3-2 99.14 The Triumph survived Denver's comeback bid by 1 point. Chicago got out to an early lead after Burrow had his best week of the season with a 41 point day which was 5 points better than his 3 start total. Then SNF happened where McCaffery and Samuel gave back points to Kittle/Moody and then Daniel Carlson's homecoming was nearly ruined after missing 2 field goals.
5 (3) ND 2-3 91.67 The Nimrods can be great or garbage. In their 2 wins, they scored 313 points. In their 3 losses, they scored 313 points. It was bad enough where they didn't even score over 100 points. Both wideouts had 4 catches for 40+ yards to end with 8 points. Darren Waller had his best receiving day of the season with 8 catches for 86 yards but still hasn't found the endzone as a Giant.
6 (7) SD 2-3 89.68 The Surge put on one heck of a show with the Hooligans but they came out on the losing side despite scoring 159 points. This really wasn't a contest until Jalen Hurts and Jamar Chase put on a clinic. Hurts picked up a double passing bonus and then a rushing bonus to end with 47 points. Chase went for 15REC-192YDS and 3TDs. Had he had 8 more receiving yards, the Surge would have won.
7 (5) TB 4-1 88.37 The Blizzard are no longer undefeated and the losses may start to pile up. Justin Jefferson, the #1 overall pick, injured his hamstring and then was placed on IR. He finished with a season low of 5 points. Miles Sanders had an awful week too scoring a single point. He is trending in the wrong direction too and will probably be ruled out for this upcoming week.
8 (9) SF 3-2 84.18 The Rattlesnakes were caught in a bit of controversy this week that flipped the outcome of the game before stats were finalized. Aaron Jones was listed as questionable for MNF and San Fran did not name the backup until after the deadline. Khalil Hebert was named the default back but it was wrong. After stats were double checked, a mistake was found and A.J. Dillon was the correct backup aligning with SF's intention of starting him.
9 (8) DEN 2-3 76.80 The Diamonds nearly pulled off a Sunday/Monday Night miracle, exactly one year after holding off an epic comeback attempt vs. Chicago. George Kittle was electric catching 3 balls with all of them going for touchdowns on SNF and nearly outscored McCaffery and Deebo. Josh Jacobs had 25 touches en route to a 24 point night. However, he lost a yard on his last carry dropping him to 69 yards rushing, losing a point, and falling short by a single point.
10 (12) ANA 1-4 72.71 The Commando Cats picked up their first win of the season. It wasn't just any kind of win, they took down an undefeated LA team by 55 points. The Jags played their second game in a row in London and things worked out well for one of their trio. Travis Etienne rumbled for 2TD's and gave the English crowd a 45 point performance. Christian Kirk and Evan Engram chipped in 19 points.
11 (10) ATL 1-4 72.68 The Jesters pulled off a shocking win to earn their first victory of the season. Atlanta looked to be in all sorts of trouble with Geno Smith having a 12 point carryover. No biggie, 4 other guys scored a touchdown. Devon Achane had his first FFL start and had an unbelievable rushing day gonig for 151 yards on 11 carries. Then his day and foreseeable future ended as he heads to the IR.
12 (11) DET 1-4 71.34 The Devils were on the wrong side of a game that actually had the results overturned. For a 24 hour period, Detroit was declared the winner vs San Fran. But a stat check later and Detroit now finds themselves sitting in last place of the standings. The year started off so promising and then Austin Ekeler went down which kick started a 4 game losing streak.
