DraftKings Recommended Lineup Week 6
Ready to turn $5 into $50k? @DraftKings is giving you the chance now, and it’s through one-day fantasy football games http://bit.ly/17fdiMC
All lineups are based off of a $50,000 salary cap featured at DraftKings, you best option in daily fantasy sports gaming. Lineups consist of a quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, one tight end,, one FLEX one kicker and one team defense.
QB: Robert Griffin III (WAS) @ DAL--$8,200--Coming off of a bye week, the Redskins and Griffin couldn't have asked for a better matchup to try and turn their season around. The Cowboys have allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, having allowed at least two passing touchdowns in four of their first five games. Griffin has underachieved through the first four games of his sophomore campaign, throwing more interceptions (6) than touchdowns (4), but considering the matchup, he is the type of player who should easily exceed his price tag.
RB: Arian Foster (HOU) vs. STL--$7,800--The Texans have taken a conservative approach with Foster through their first five games, but considering Sunday's matchup, this may be his coming out party. The Rams have allowed five rushing touchdowns over their last four games, averaging 126.0 rushing yards per game to opposing running backs. Although Ben Tate will still get his fair share of carries, the lack of production from Matt Schaub in the early going should lead to a more conservative approach in a effort to try and limit turnovers.
RB: Danny Woodhead (SD) vs. IND--$6,200--In a PPR-format, like DraftKings, Woodhead has been money the last four weeks, surpassing 20 fantasy points in Week 4 and Week 5. The majority of his production has come in the Chargers passing game, proving there can be fantasy value for players not playing traditional roles. Despite suffering a concussion in Week 5, the Chargers listed Ryan Mathews as probably for Monday night's game, but even with Mathews in the mix, Woodhead will be a solid option.
WR: Antonio Brown (PIT) @ NYJ--$6,900--Prior to the Steelers' Week 5 bye week, Brown had awakened after a slow start, going off for 43.6 FPTS and 21.8 FPTS in the team's last two games. With Antonio Cromartie dealing with a knee injury, the Jets will have to try and double team Brown when possible, but even then it will be hard to contain Brown's playmaking ability. The Jets have done an admirable job against opposing wide receivers thus far in 2013, however, they did allow three touchdowns to a less talented Titans team in Week 4, so they are beatable through the passing game.
WR: Santana Moss (WAS) @ DAL--$3,300--Moss is clearly on the downside of his career, but when you consider his career stats against the Cowboys, it is hard to overlook the Redskins veteran receiver.Over the last four seasons, Moss has totaled 36 receptions for 413 yards and three touchdowns against the Cowboys, which has earned him the label "Cowboy Killer." I know he isn't even the top target in the Redskins passing game, but the numbers don't lie. Expect the Redskins to pass a lot in this game, exploiting the weak Cowboys secondary with Moss getting his fair share of the action.
TE: Vernon Davis (SF) vs. SF--$5,500--Although Davis has been hit-or-miss this season, this week's matchup with the Cardinals looks great on paper. Through five games, the Cardinals are one of the worst defenses against opposing tight ends, having surrendered four touchdowns. Considering how well the Cardinals are against the run (79.0 rushing yards allowed per game), the Niners will have to pass the ball often if they want to escape with a victory. Davis' price tag has barely moved despite scoring in two straight contests, so take advantage of it now while you can.
FLEX: DeAngelo Williams (CAR) @ MIN--$4,100--Williams didn't come through the way I imagined last week, but this week should be a different story. The matchup for Williams couldn't be much better, going up against the Vikings, who have the worst ranked defense against opposing running backs. It is also a plus knowing that Williams is the featured running back in the Panthers offense, and coming in at such a low price, makes him a great bargain as a No. 1 running back.
K: Matt Prater (DEN) vs. JAC--$4,000--There isn't much analysis needed for this pick, considering he is a part of the best offense in the league. The Broncos are going to score a lot of points in this game, meaning Prater's foot is going to be very active. As long as you have the extra money, go with the league's top scoring kicker.
DEF: Carolina Panthers @ MIN--$4,000--Over the last two weeks, the Panthers defense and special teams has done an admirable job, despite not being looked at as a top group in the league. The Vikings own the 23rd ranked passing game and 10th ranked rushing game, both of which the Panthers should be able to contain. If they can force the Vikings to pass the ball while containing Adrian Peterson, Matt Cassel will likely make some bad decisions when the ball is in his hands.
Total Salary: $50,000
