Many people predicted what Brock Osweiler would do against the Bears. Those three interceptions and two lost fumbles were…oh wait. No, no, Osweiler decided to cover for an injured Tannehill and proceed to light up one of the best defenses in the NFL. Then Dak Prescott and the Cowboys followed Osweiler’s lead by ripping the Jaguars defense to the tune of 40 points. That’s Week 6 for you. Some things weren’t shocking though, like Todd Gurley going nuts in Denver and James Conner having a day when the Steelers needed it most. Yet, when the dust settles, was that performance by James Conner…his last big show (*insert villainous Le’Veon Bell laugh*)?

Liz Loza, Scott Pianowski and Matt Harmon break down those Week 6 happenings and more in this week’s podcast episode (bidding for Gurley in an auction draft, anyone?). They also discuss the Browns getting steamrolled against the Chargers (Baker Mayfield finally Browned), as well as Julio Jones and his seemingly impenetrable touchdown-preventing force field (even when Calvin Ridley and Mohamed Sanu left the game!!!).

Continuing with that same theme of head-scratching performances, our experts then try to help you understand some of the most confusing occurrences that happened in your fantasy matchups this week, along with a couple of pickup options for Week 7.
