Time to get ready for NFL Week 6 DFS! Who's ready? The Fantasy Alarm #FAmily has been crushing it through the first five weeks of the regular season and we're ready to do it all over again this week. Of course, we're going to have to navigate a number of key NFL injuries and that can always be tricky. With Miami Dolphins running back De'Von Achane out for multiple weeks, we know Raheem Mostert is going to be incredibly chalky this week, but we have to acknowledge the possibility of Jeffrey Wilson returning to that backfield. Justin Jefferson is already on IR, but how do we see the target distribution for Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings? Will it be KJ Osborn? Jordan Addison? What about Brandon Powell and possibly even Jalen Nailor? And let's not forget the Arizona Cardinals backfield. With James Conner out for multiple weeks, is Emari Demercado a lock? What if Keaontay Ingram comes of the IR list? Usually when we start looking at injury replacements, it opens up the value in DFS, but did all of this news break too early? Will any of these players be enough of a value to lock them into your cash game lineups? All that will be answered here in the NFL Week 6 DFS Watch List, so let's get to it.
As always, I would like to welcome all of our new subscribers. I've seen a lot of new screen names in Discord and I see a ton of new sign-ups for the All-Pro package, so before we fully dive in to the NFL DFS Week 6 Watch List, please allow me to welcome all of the new members of the Fantasy Alarm #FAmily. There are a lot of you and we thank you for joining. Now it's up to us to help you cash consistently on your NFL DFS action and we are psyched to make that happen. Since you are new to the Watch List, allow me to share some thoughts real quick:
“If you give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day. If you teach a man to fish, he’ll eat for a lifetime.”
We take this adage to heart when it comes to playing NFL DFS. The Fantasy Alarm Playbook isn’t just about handing you a list of players and a lineup to use each week. It is designed to help you learn to be a better DFS player. It’s about teaching you the process used in selecting which players to scout and, eventually, which ones to use.
Therefore, we will begin each week with the Weekly NFL DFS Watch List which is designed to keep tabs on marquee names, chalk plays and, of course, the weekly bargains who may not see the same coverage and exposure. This piece will be continuously updated throughout the week, based on the most recent news and injuries, which means you may see a name or two removed as we get closer to Sunday kick-off. You may also see a few late-week additions who pique our interest for some reason too, and by the end of the week, this Watch List will eventually become your Playbook. Again, it’s about teaching you the process.
So what exactly did last week's Playbook deliver? As always, we like to check in to ensure we remain on the right path.
Scoring The Playbook Week 5
Again, a powerful week for the Playbook. We did not dive into the Jared Goff or Joe Burrow worlds which may have hurt us a bit, especially with the value Burrow presented to us, but we nailed every other position. Yes, we got burned by the Conner and Jefferson injuries, but Breece Hall and Achane? We had them in there. At wide receiver we were locked into Ja'Marr Chase and offered you some great value in DeAndre Hopkins and Marquise Brown. And who else out there had Dallas Goedert? No one! We did. We also had Sam LaPorta for those wondering. And how about that New Orleans Saints defense? So yeah, we may not have hit all our QBs, but we're building 200-plus point lineups here. Ready for more? Yeah, me too!
