It's NFL Week 6 and we're all building some winning DFS lineups, right? Is your prep work done? You always want to make sure you read through all of the amazing DFS content we provide, maybe use some of our NFL tools like the DFS Player Comparison tool or even the NFL DFS lineup generator BEFORE you stop in here looking for the Example Lineups. Yes, that's right, before. You always want to build your lineups on your own before you look here so you can make comparisons and see if you're reading situations right. There is always a ton of outside noise and we are hearing a variety of opinions on things like Emari Demercado vs Keaontay Ingram or D'Onta Foreman vs Chuba Hubbard or even something like KJ Osborn vs Jordan Addison. It's always best to look everything over and build your own lineup because you may see a game differently than we do and there's nothing wrong with that. The Playbook is filled with players I like, but who's to say you don't have a sneaky move up your own sleeve? Either way, I hope you've read through everything and are now ready to compare.



Just a few notes here about the lineups below...

The cash lineups were built solely off the players I put in the Playbook. These are the guys who, unless I have indicated otherwise, offer up the higher floor and will help you cash in your Double-Ups and 50/50s. For GPP tournaments, particularly the large-field ones, you need to find alternative routes to the cash line. I will utilize players from the Playbook and the DFS Dart Board to fill in the gaps, but what I am looking for are some lower-owned stacks that make sense based on expected game flow and other news. You may also see in the GPP lineups, there may be some names I haven't discussed this week on the site, but have talked about during the week on the Fantasy Alarm Show or even on the Fantasy Alarm Sunday Gameday Show on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio. You will also notice, though, that others on the site have mentioned some of these players in places such as the position coaches, so it's not like we're trying to hide anything from you. The only time, and I mean the only time you will see a player in a GPP lineup who hasn't been discussed is if we are using a stack and need a player from the other team coming back. But it's rare when that happens.

Again, these lineups are meant to serve as examples for you; a sounding board, as I said. They are not meant for you to plug in as your own. That's the lazy way and we don't condone it. We are trying to teach you how to be a better DFS player; we aren't lineup-sellers. You should be creating your own lineups using all the information we provide you throughout the week and then coming here to see if there is anything you may have missed or simply for an alternative perspective.

**Be sure to check the Playbook and Dart Board for late changes

Best of luck to you this week and let's make some money!

MIN/CHI – Should be dry and breezy. Winds 20mph sustained with gusts to 30mph.

SF/CLE – The winds here likely come in a touch under what we see in Chicago, but we're still bringing in 15-20mph sustained winds with gusts around 30. On top of that, this is the game we're most likely to see rain.


As a reminder, when you're stacking in GPP, you always want to run someone back from the opposing team. One-sided games often turn to a running back seeing higher-than-usual volume or the back-ups start to play. For a stack to really pop, the other team needs to keep things competitive.
