DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 6

QB Gardner Minshew JAC

Gardner Minshew has seen minimal ownership the past few weeks but he has produced at a good price. He is averaging 19.5 DraftKings points per game and is facing the Saints that allow 24.18 DraftKing points per game to the position. His price has dropped $300 after putting up almost 30 fantasy points last week.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 6

Josh Bynes ARI and Cooper Kupp LAR

The Rams' offense isn't anywhere as intimidating as it was at this point last season, but one person who is definitely balling is Cooper Kupp. Kupp has been outstanding thus far, and is clearly the apple of Jared Goff's eye.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 6

QB_Aaron_Rodgers_GBP_1

Fantasy games will be won and lost on Monday night. Expect the Aaron Rodgers we all know to be back as Green Bay throws the ball at will all over Detroit but for the Lions to answer with primarily Kerryon Johnson but Matthew Stafford and his receiving group will be right behind.

TAKEAWAYS: Part 2

QB Sam Darnold NYJ

There is not much to say for the Jets’ passing situation as everything should reset once Sam Darnold is back this week. For those playing DFS this week, the Jets defense is criminally cheap and allows thousands of dollars in savings compared to others.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 6

QB Kyler Murray ARI

If ever there was a week to roll the dice on Kyler Murray, this might be it. The Falcons are the worst team in the league when facing opposing quarterbacks. If the Cardinals can spread them out and give Murray some time he should be able to have his best game as a pro.

FLEX APPEAL: Week 6

RB Adrian Peterson WAS

Coach Callahan has stated that he wants to run the ball more.. Enter Adrian Peterson, who hasn’t done much of anything on the season. Miami is the best possible matchup for opposing running backs, so Peterson should finally have a positive game script to go off of. Go ahead and put your confidence in the future Hall of Famer.

IDP STUDS AND DUDS: Week 6 IDP Start/Sit

LB Jayon Brown TEN

Jayon Brown's a new-age NFL linebacker—a player who relies more on speed and sideline-to-sideline range than size. Brown had a sluggish first game for the Titans this year, but he's been making up for it ever since—the third-year pro ranks just outside the top-12 in fantasy points over the past four games.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 6

WR Terry McLaurin WAS & CB Byron Jones DAL

After starting the year with a touchdown in each of the first three games, "Scary Terry" has had a tough two game stretch. McLaurin has a dream matchup against the Dolphins on Sunday and should get back on track. He’s a must start and should find his way into the scoring column once again. Get him in your lineup.

DFS GEMS: Week 6

RB Le'Veon Bell New York Jets

Lost in how bad the Jets have been sans Sam Darnold is how quietly useful Le'Veon Bell has been! He has 27 receptions on 32 targets this season along with 71 rushing attempts through four games. A running back that’s south of $7,000 who is averaging more than 24 touches per game is pretty hard to come by.

THE DIVE: Week 6 “Boom or Bust”

RB Matt Breida SF

Although Tevin Coleman returned and carried the ball 16 times, Matt Breida was a major focal point of the offense with 11 carries for 114 yards, three catches for 15 yards, and scored twice. Expect more Breida in Week 6 when San Francisco visits the Los Angeles Rams.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 6

DE Arden Key OAK & QB Patrick Mahomes KC

Do we need to be worried about Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City offense? Can the San Francisco running back duo of Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman keep the good times rolling against the Los Angeles Rams? David Grey will ...

TAKEAWAYS: Part 1

RB_Todd_Gurley_STL_2

The Rams of old are slowly making an appearance again with Todd Gurley increasing his snaps each game and the Rams supporting multiple pass catchers. It is good news for Gurley that he saw 15 of the team’s 18 carries and Malcolm Brown is no longer a factor.

START/BENCH: Week 6

DB_Brandon_Carr_DAL_WR_Stefon_Diggs_MIN_1

Fantasy owners have been waiting for Diggs to finally have a big game since — well, fantasy owners are still waiting for Diggs to have a big game. From a matchup perspective, Philadelphia’s leaky secondary sets up well for it to finally happen in Week 6.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 5

RB Josh Jacobs OAK

With a Week 5 game in London against the vaunted Chicago defense, not much was expected of Jacobs on Sunday. The Alabama rookie surprised everyone with the best game of his brief career, helping Oakland upset Chicago.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 6

WR Duke Williams BUF

The Bills are on a bye in Week 6, but we will still feature one of their players as one of this week’s top selections. Buffalo and Zay Jones never worked out, and with Jones now shipped out west to Oakland, Duke Williams will take on a regular role in the offense.

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 6

RB Damien Williams KC

Damien Williams was used very sparingly in his return from injury which is pretty normal, but there is no way the Chiefs continue this trend. This week was just to ease him back, and he is likely to see his regular workload against the Texans. I would want him on my side by any means necessary when that time comes.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 6

DL_Brandon_Graham_PHI_1

Brandon Graham may well have been drafted this year based on reputation, but with just 10 tackles and no sacks over the first month the 31-year-old was likely shown the door in most leagues. Graham exploded for half a dozen tackles and three sacks Sunday against the New York Jets.

ON SECOND THOUGHT: Week 6

QB Gardner Minshew JAC

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 6

WR_Keenan_Allen_SDC_1

The NFL comes into Week 6 with all of these strange issues. Teams that should win do not. See the Kansas City Chiefs at home. See the Dallas Cowboys at home. Players that were number one in receiving yards are held back. See Keenan Allen.

GRAB BAG: Week 6

RB Adrian Peterson WAS

THE LOWDOWN: Week 5

WR Chris Godwin TBB

Yes, several pundits had Chris Godwin as a solid WR2 heading into the season, but how many had him as a WR1... on his own team? Godwin has actually out-produced perennial WR stud Mike Evans, and if anyone tells you they had predicted that being the case in 2019, immediately consider that person a liar...
