SB Nation's fantasy football blog, Fake Teams, gives us the ranking for running backs in week 6 of the 2011 NFL season. Even with six teams on their Bye week, these guys still rate 70 running backs for you to look at based on their expected match-ups with opposing defenses. They have the Baltimore Ravens' Ray Rice as the fourth-best option and even have their week 6 opponent, Houston Texans RB Arian Foster, as the seventh-best choice this week.

My money would tell you to keep Foster on your bench this weekend as the Ravens won't be surrendering much in the run game and besides, Houston QB Matt Schaub will have to take to the air to play catch-up as the Ravens are sure to jump out to a big lead and force the Texans to abandon the run game in their futile attempt to stage a comeback like they did last year in the exciting yet frustrating Monday Night Football game that Baltimore won 34-28 in overtime on a Josh Wilson pick-six.

They also did another story on Week 6 Waiver Wire Scoops, to help you find those sleepers or guys who might be worth grabbing if available in your league, as well as Week 6 Individual Defensive Player Rankings.
