Daily Fantasy Football: Week 6

Whether you are a DFS (Daily Fantasy Sports) fanatic or new to DFS, we are here to help. Each week, the Fantasy 4um provides a recommended lineup for DFS based on FanDuel pricing. We'll touch on some H2H and 50/50 value plays as well as give you tournament contest recommendations. Additionally, we'll provide general tips and tricks throughout the season to hopefully help you in your quest for DFS tournament glory. Week 6, here we come:

FanDuel pricing and the corresponding NFL matchups have brewed up a perfect storm for this week's QB-WR stack: Andy Dalton ($7,600) and AJ Green ($8,100). Let's start with the Red Rocket. Of starting QBs this week, Dalton has the second most fantasy points per game, yet there are 13 QBs with higher FanDuel prices. Moreover, Buffalo's defense is giving up the sixth most points per game to opposing QBs. Green will be facing a secondary who has given up a whopping 45.42 points per game to opposing WRs (collective points to WRs on the same team), six more points than any other team. Furthermore, AJ Green sees almost 50% of Dalton's WR targets. This game will be like Christmas morning for owners of the Red and Green dynamic duo.

Despite his lackluster start to the season, I believe this will be a breakout week for Eddie Lacy ($7,300) as he goes up against a San Diego defense that has given up the second most points per game to opposing RBs.

Allen Hurns ($6,500) has been looking better each and every week. It's hard not to like this guy; Hurns has scored a touchdown in each of his last three games and gone for over 115 yards in his last two. Look for him to have another big week.

Even after his big performance in Week 5, Antonio Gates ($5,500) has nine TEs priced above him. GB vs. SD will be an offensive battle with one of the highest over/unders on Sunday (51 points). Look for Gates to have 70+ yards and at least one TD.

Charcandrick West ($6,200) is an underpriced, high-upside RB this week. West is expected to get the majority of the carries with Jamaal Charles on IR. I like the potential this week for West to prove he's their guy.

Kickers are more unpredictable than any other position. My kicker lottery ticket this week is Matt Bryant ($4,900) who will be kicking inside on the turf of the Superdome.

The New York Jets Defense has scored the 9th most points per game and is facing the Washington offense that gives up the 7th most points to opposing defenses. Revis Island and the surrounding seas are reasonably priced this week considering their favorable matchup at home.

  1. This are some great recommended picks! It reminds me of the https://www.fantasysportsdaily.com/ where they do the same but based on the DraftKings rates. It is quite a good idea to compare 2-3 sites like this so that you can get a great idea of which players to draft pick.
