How blocking will affect matchups in fantasy football Week 6

The fantasy football world has lagged behind when it comes to effectively measuring the impact blocking has on production, so I devised a grading system that uses multiple advanced metrics to project how blocking matchups will impact performance in the upcoming week's contests. (The details of the system can be found here.)

The entire list of the Week 6 overall matchup grades are posted below, along with a detailed look at some of the favorable and unfavorable blocking matchups fantasy managers should be aware of and how those could impact their start/sit decisions. Is it time to bench DeMarco Murray? Will Jameis Winston have time to throw long passes against the Cardinals? Can Adrian Peterson, Wayne Gallman or Orleans Darkwa be trusted as fantasy flex options this week and will Todd Gurley bounce back after a dismal performance last week?
