Fantasy Football: Week Six Quarterback Rankings & Daily League Plays

by Michael Pichan (@FantasyNomad)

Well at least Eli Manning already played so we do not have to worry about succumbing to any temptation to start him, a temptation that I believe no longer exists after another multi-interception game. Speaking of a s*%t storm, always check the weather before your DFS contest starts as weather will become more and more of a factor as we saw in the Patriots/Bengals game last week.

Remember, if you want a look at who is starting for each team along with player projections and DFS pricing visit our NFL Lineup Grid. Also, if you have any Start/Sit questions click on the twitter link in blue above and I'll answer them. And join us for our "Ask the Experts" Live Start/Sit Chat every Sunday morning from 10am est to game time.










Daily League QB Targets:


Quarterback Value Plays:

  • Panthers QB Cam Newton ($13,813, 13.8% of your cap at Draft Street - Play Now)- I am a little concerned that the Vikings will be even more focused this week in support of the tragic event surrounding teammate Adrian Peterson, but not sure if that extra motivation can make up for the lack of talent on defense, especially in the secondary. The Vikings defense has allowed opposing quarterbacks to throw for about 300 yards or more in their first four games (3rd most passing yards/game allowed in the NFL).


  • Deep Discounted Dandy: Bengals QB Andy Dalton  ($115,900, 12% of your cap at Fantasy Feud- Play Now )- The recommendation for Dalton has less to do with him, (or the fact he has red hair as many of my adversaries may lead you to believe), and more to do with my expectations that A.J. Green's breakout week is upon us versus a Bills defense that has surrendered multiple receivers to exceed 100 yards receiving this season.
