For NFL Week6 DFS, things were looking pretty good even before we start hunting for the DFS bargains that usually litter the Dart Board. But there is so much value at the running back position and several inexpensive wide receiver options in the NFL DFS Playbook, that we don't really need a whole heck of a lot. There are some Week 6 NFL injuries we are still watching, such as Chris Olave clearing concussion protocol and Tee Higgins ankle and once we have clarity on them, we should see if there is any additional value to be had. But in all honesty, not needing a bunch of pay-downs is actually a good thing. If we can build our GPP lineups without having to need three or more pay-downs, we're actually in a really good spot. But I know you love your bargains, so let's get to it.



Welcome to the DFS Dart Board for NFL Week 6!

If you're new to Fantasy Alarm, the DFS Dart Board is an add-on to the Playbook that I started a few years ago. It came about when I was building GPP lineups and realized I needed more salary relief. As I dug through my notes to see who stood out the most among those players at a more affordable price, it hit me. When I put players in the Playbook, I am thinking primarily about cash lineup plays -- guys with a high floor who I could conceivably put into my core-group and build a lineup around. After those players, I would mix in a handful of guys who had boatloads of upside and were in soft match-ups, but I wasn’t paying as much attention to their salary as I should have. And that's where the Dart Board came into play.

Every now and then, when building lineups while using particular stacks, you need some salary relief. You need a guy who may not be minimally priced, but low enough to give you the flexibility you need to get someone like Justin Jefferson or Stefon Diggs in as a flex play or something. Occasionally you may see a min-priced QB or TE in here, but more often than not, this space is reserved for running backs and wide receivers who are below $6,000 on FanDuel or $5,000 or lower on DraftKings.

Now while we call this a Dart Board, keep in mind that every player has been carefully researched. We're not up here picking players all willy-nilly, desperately hoping they hit. We're looking for the cheapest bargains possible who still have the strongest potential to give you at least a 3-5x return on what you pay.

All set? Great. Let's get to it and while you do, maybe give a listen to this week's NFL DFS Podcast with Jon Impemba and James Grande.
