Well SportSmasher.com readers, it has been a two week hiatus from posting this article and I apologize. Was traveling for work and sucking at DFS so I did you a favor. Don’t fear, I return to action and right the ship on DraftKings this week. Here are some of the lower cost values I am targeting in Daily Fantasy for Week 6 2015. Note: Thursday Night players are out of this pool.
QB – Mathew Stafford ($5,300): The Lions have faced some stiff defensive competition the last 3 weeks (Broncos, Seahawks, Cardinals) and get to take on the Bears this week. Stafford and Calvin have a bounce back week and at this price, Stafford is a solid value play at QB.
RB – Charcandrick West ($4,000): West takes over for the injured Jamal Charles and will get the bulk of carries for the Chiefs. At $4K, he is a steal and you can spend elsewhere (like TE). Watch out in big money contests as West will be a cornerstone of alot of rosters. I also like the Lamar Miller ($4,300) play this week as the Dolphins come off a coaching change… I could see them getting Miller more involved against the Titans.
WR – Allen Hurns ($5,000): Hurns has been a scoring machine in PPR formats the past few weeks and there is no reason that should stop this week against Houston. I also like Eric Decker ($4,900) to find the endzone again this week as the Redskins have a stout run defense and the Jets will throw the ball at home. Marquess Wilson ($4,000) is another solid cheap value play if you are trying to find that last player and don’t have much to spend.
TE – Larry Donnell ($2,800): The Giants WRs are banged up and the Eagles are starting to get comfortable on offense. If Eli is going to need to throw, Donnell could be the benefactor. His cost is very low for someone would could find the endzone twice in this game.
DST – New York Jets ($3,100): Kirk Cousins is going to have his hands full with a Jets defense coming off a bye week and getting Sheldon Richardson back. This could be a sack and turnover heavy game, so get Gang Green in your lineups.
