Editor”s Note: A new $2,000,000 one-week fantasy football league has opened on FanDuel for Week 6. First place wins $150,000 on Sunday. Join now!
Welcome to Week 6!
For standard leagues, I”ll pick some players outside the top 10 and 15 who I think will play well as well as some higher rated players who I see underachieving using the ESPN rankings. I”ve got my FanDuel picks at the bottom.
Last week, I went 13-7 in underachievers and overachievers, and went 10-7 in FanDuel. Let”s get to it.
UnderachieversSeattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch: He has been banged up and faces a tough Panthers defense.OverachieversPhiladelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford: The Giants have a tough running defense but give up a ton of plays through the air.Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J Yeldon: He continues to hog all the RB touches.San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead: I see a ton of short passes against the tough Packers” defense, and he continues to put up quality numbers every week.
Here are my FanDuel picks for the week where I will give some higher and lower salaries I like at each position. As you will see, I will be focusing on the defenses to pick on:
QBJacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles, $7,300: A top 6 fantasy QB for this salary is a bargain in a plus match up.RBGreen Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy, $7,300: He will have low ownership, but if he is going to break out, this is the week.Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovanni Bernard, $6,700: A great price for a RB1.Kansas City RB Charcandrick West, $6,200: If you”re feeling lucky, here is the gamble of the week.San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead, $6,000: He should get at least 15 touches and at this price, is an easy start.WRHouston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins, $8,500: He is my #1 receiver this week at a nice price.New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall, $8,000: Some may forget the roll he was on before the bye.New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman, $7,900: As easy stats as it gets week in and week out. Very safe.Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin, $7,200: Touchdowns are tough to come by, but he is top 5 in the NFL in targets.Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson, $6,700: I love the mid-range receivers this week.Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown, $6,100: One of the most productive cheap WRs in FanDuel.Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken, $6,000: A WR1 for this price and playing the 49ers? Yes, please.Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson, $5,400: Jay Cutler kills the Lions, and Wilson is his top WR target.TECincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert, $6,000: He is the top fantasy tight end so far this year.San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates, $5,500: Came back strong last week, and this is the cheapest he will be the rest of the way.
