We provide a rundown of the top fantasy football projections for week six at all six major positions. We will follow up with position-by-position breakdowns including a look at some possible sleepers at each position. For more on fantasy football, check out Fake Teams and follow @sbnationfantasy.

Sunday morning means time to figure out which players you need to sit and which players you need to start in your weekly fantasy football lineup. Week six is the second week of byes, which means Denver, Tennessee, Kansas City, Arizona, San Diego, and Seattle are all off. First and foremost, make sure you have at least replaced your bye week players. There is nothing worse than forgetting that and taking a goose egg for the lamest of reasons. And if your team is winless and in last place? Don't be the guy who forgets to update the lineup.

As we head into week six's Sunday matchups, we will have a host of sit/start projections for you starting at 7:00 am eastern time. We will break down all six major fantasy positions (QB, RB, WR, TE, K, Defense) and provide you with some projections courtesy of, as well. The folks at use proprietary statistics to provide weekly and annual player projections that have eclipsed those at ESPN and Yahoo!. Fantasy football owners are on the hunt for every possible edge and this is one very solid option.

We'll be back bright and early Sunday morning with a position-by-position breakdown for the day. Those breakdowns will also include some thoughts on sleepers at each position beyond what the numbers indicate. In the meantime, here are each position's top rankings for tomorrow. Adrian Peterson is the top ranked player on the day, a week after blowing up against the Arizona Cardinals. AP will be looking to continue rewarding fantasy owners.

The projections are fluid as more information comes in, so make sure and check back tomorrow.
