2019 Daily Fantasy: DraftKings NFL Week 6 Picks and Sleepers

Woahhhhhh Nelly. Week 5 was one for the ages as many players put up insane scores in what was a very high scoring week.

Let’s get it.

  • Matt Ryan ($6,400)
    • The QBs at the top of the salary ranks are all appealing, but Ryan sticks out the most to me this week against the Cardinals. His lowest scoring week came in Week 4 against the Titans with 19.68 and now he gets a plus matchup in Arizona. They inflate everyone’s stats and Ryan already has the Falcons offense humming. A big day is coming.
  • Kirk Cousins ($5,200)
    • After apologizing to his receivers about not getting them the ball enough, Cousins made up with a 24 point game against a poor Giants defense. A contest against the Eagles will surely be harder than the Giants, but the Eagles very much provide a pass funnel game script where it will be easier for Cousins to pass than it should be for Dalvin Cook to run the ball.
  • Case Keenum ($5,000)
    • Assuming Keenum is able to play and starts this week in Miami, he’ll be facing the worst team/defense in the NFL. Keenum hasn’t been that bad, averaging 22.17 DK points per game in games he plays fully in. If there’s a chance for Washington to right the ship, it’s this week.

Running Backs:

  • Alvin Kamara ($8,000)
    • Of the elite RBs in this slate, Kamara is easily my favorite. Zeke has yet to have his signature game, Cook has a tough matchup, DJ dealing with a back issue. Kamara hasn’t been producing at his godly rate we’ve grown accustomed to the last few years, but the matchup is ripe in Week 6. The Jags have struggled with their run defense and we just saw Christian McCaffrey go insane on them just last week. Teddy doesn’t air it out, I like for Kamara to take this game over.
  • Mark Ingram ($6,600)
    • The volume has been there for Ingram, it’s just the production that’s not always adding up. He’s had some huge and positive games thanks to touchdowns, but this game against a lowly Bengals defense should be a great spot for him. Remember that MNF game between the Steelers and Bengals? Pittsburgh ran wild. Now insert Lamar and Ingram into the mix. Yes please.
  • Le’Veon Bell ($6,400)
    • Bell is a guy that’s criminally under-priced at the moment. The return of Sam Darnold only helps his outlook as the overall offense should take a big step forward. Bell’s workload is off the charts, and now he gets a home game against Dallas who was just thrashed by Aaron Jones for four touchdowns.
  • Chris Carson ($6,000)
    • Did you watch the last MNF game? The one where the 49ers ran wild behind the duo of Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman? Yeah they went off, Cleveland’s defense has a very tough time stopping the run, which Seattle is very much locked into doing with Chris Carson. Carson is a workhorse back, and has gotten good target numbers in the passing game. An all around back.
  • Adrian Peterson ($4,500)
    • I normally wouldn’t include AP in here, but Miami has been that bad this year. The game script fits him where they can get a potential lead (shocker) and just let him run wild against a terrible defense. He offers more upside than Thompson who is $500 more expensive.
  • Malcolm Brown ($4,300)
    • Should Todd Gurley miss this week’s game, then Brown enters discussion for possible plays against the 49ers. They have a very stout run defense which isn’t very promising, but with that offense and having the goal line work all to himself he could very well be a great value play.

Wide Receivers:

  •  Cooper Kupp ($7,100)
    • Of the top WRs, Kupp seems to offer the most value. The threat of Gurley missing the game only helps as the game script would lean more pass heavy. Kupp has been consistently dominant for the Rams and is quite easily Goff’s favorite target.
  • Adam Thielen ($6,700)
    • The squeaky wheel narrative worked to perfection last week as Thielen and Cousins kissed and made up on the field with 7-130-2. They get another great matchup against the poor Eagles secondary this week so another great game for Thielen is very possible.
  • Terry McLaurin ($6,000)
    • The F1 McLaurin (get the Scary Terry stuff out of here CJay) has been a touchdown machine aside from the impossible matchup with New England and Stephon Gilmore. He should get back to his dominant ways against the awful Dolphins defense.
  • Michael Gallup ($5,600)
    • While Amari Cooper has been lighting defenses up, don’t forget about Gallup lining up across the field. When he’s played, Gallup has averaged 22 DK points per game. His target numbers are still very high for a WR2 and his deep ball skills really add up the yardage he gets. A bad Jets defense shouldn’t be slowing down Dallas this week.
  • Preston Williams ($4,100)
    • Suggesting a Miami Dolphin? What?! I know, but there’s a real good feeling surrounding Preston Williams this week. He’s Rosen’s favorite target and seems due for a touchdown. His target numbers of 5,6,7,12 are encouraging and if there’s a defense Miami could actually score on it’s the Redskins.

Tight Ends:

  • Austin Hooper ($5,000)
    • You know the deal. Tight ends versus Arizona. It helps knowing Hooper has averaged 17.5 DK points per week so you could have expected production anyways. Now he opens up his ceiling to new heights.
  • Noah Fant ($2,900)
    • Dart throw here at the TE spot, Fant has been utilized a bit within Denver’s offense. They’ve looked to get him balls down the field for more yards, but that’s not always hitting. Cortland Sutton has been the hot pass catcher on the team but Fant offers tournament game upside.


  • Baltimore Ravens ($4,100)
    • The Bengals are bad. Very bad. Especially their offensive line that gives Dalton no time to make plays. Sacks, turnovers, a special defensive touchdown? All are in play this week.
  • Atlanta Falcons ($2,300)
    • We know the Cardinals offensive line stinks. Kyler has been sacked an insane amount of times and is very prone to turnovers. It helps having the Falcons listed so cheap.
  • New York Jets ($1,500)
    • The first time I’ve seen a defense drop below $2,000. The Jets should probably be even lower, but they’ve averaged 10.8 DK points per game thanks to some defensive touchdowns. I’d consider rostering them if it meant being able to add another stud 7-8k player.
