What’s up, GF2 followers! After a crazy week of football action, I’m back with some great DFS value options for Week 6! I’ve got a feeling about a ton of cheaper guys that could do well for your lineups on Sunday. Every week I’ll be covering the main slate of games. Let’s get started!
The GameFly DraftKings Value Plays for Week 6
Carson Palmer (ARI) vs. TB $6,100
I really like Palmer this week in a nice matchup against Tampa Bay! So far this season, the Buccaneers rank 31st overall at defending against the pass. This year, Palmer has managed to average a cool 18.5 FPPG for his owners and has plenty of guys to target each and every week. Also, the guy has been throwing the ball a ton in 2017, throwing for 44+ passing attempts 4 of his first five games.
Brian Hoyer (SF) @ WAS $5,100
I know Hoyer isn’t the greatest quarterbacks in the NFL today but I sure am a fan of him this week against the Redskins. So far this season, Washington ranks 21st overall at defending against opposing quarterbacks, which gives me confidence in my guy. In two of his last three starts, Hoyer has scored a 25+ FPPG for his owners. I firmly believe he’ll be able to throw for a couple of scores this weekend!
Chris Thompson (WAS) vs. SF $5,000
On a site such as DraftKings, pass-catching running backs is the way to go for your weekly lineups. Thompson should be a killer option, especially if Rob Kelley misses this outing. So far this year, he’s managed to average a super solid 19.4 FPPG for his owners and will most likely be heavily targeted by Kirk Cousins. This season, the 49ers rank 32nd overall at defending against opposing running backs.
Alvin Kamara (NO) vs. DET $4,500
Now that Adrian Peterson is out of the picture in Arizona, Kamara should flourish even more in this Saints backfield. So far this year, he’s already averaging a decent 13.8 FPPG for his owners. I feel like Kamara will easily surpass his season average this weekend with Drew Brees slinging him the ball early and often! Kamara has received 7+ targets in two of his last three games, which just proves Brees trusts him.
DeSean Jackson (TB) @ ARI $5,800
The current trend happing in the DFS world is to stream any team’s number two receiver that is facing Arizona. Well, this week, that guy just so happens to be the speedster Jackson! He’s had a decent start to his 2017 campaign with the Buccaneers, averaging a nice 12.0 FPPG for his owners. I’m expecting big things from the crafty vet this weekend, though, because Mike Evans will see coverage from Patrick Peterson.
Terrelle Pryor (WAS) vs. SF $5,700
I’ve got a gut feeling that this will finally be Pryor’s break out game for the Redskins. Yes, he did well last weekend, notching three catches for 70 yards and a score but I’m expecting a bigger output this week. So far this season, San Francisco ranks 25th overall at defending against opposing wide receivers. I’m very high on Kirk Cousins this weekend, so get Pryor into some of your lineups!
Austin Seferian-Jenkins (NYJ) vs. NE $4,300
For DFS purposes, all we’re really needing from the tight end position is a touchdown to make us feel better. Well, I believe that Seferian-Jenkins will have a decent shot at scoring this weekend against a weak New England defense. So far this year, the Patriots rank 29th overall at defending against opposing tight ends. Also, the Jets will most likely be playing from behind, which bodes well for their passing game.
Ryan Griffin (HOU) vs. CLE $4,000
Another trend that is going around in the DFS community is to play tight ends against the Browns. Cleveland has been awful at defending the position in 2017, ranking 31st overall thus far this season. Griffin won’t dazzle you with a ton of stats but against a bad defense and with a gun-slinger at quarterback, I’ve got faith in him on Sunday.
NE @ NYJ $3,300
Like I said above, I’m expecting the Jets to get behind in this game early against New England. Well, hopefully, the defense will be able to pick Josh McCown off a time or two resulting in a nice fantasy day for our lineups. I know, I know the Patriots have had one of the worst defenses in the league this year, averaging just 3.4 FPPG for their owners. Just cross your fingers and hope that they can finally get it together on Sunday!
KC vs. PIT $3,200
There are multiple reasons that I would target the Chiefs defense this weekend against the Steelers. First of all, Ben Roethlisberger has looked dreadful this season, throwing five interceptions just a week ago. Also, when you have the Kansas City defense, you also end up with Tyreke Hill’s potential explosive playmaking ability.
