DFS Week 5 Plays
It’s that time of the week again Fantasy Bye Weekers!!! Our DFS plays for week 5. Check out the podcast for more DFS Plays, and our Tasty Spread Plays to make all of our listeners some big money! Hit that subscribe button to stay up to date with all of the boys… Enough about us, lets get into some DFS plays!
Premium Plays ($7,500 or more)
Zeke Elliott (KC) $8,800: Zeke is our big ticket play of the week.. He’s still looking for his “big game” of the season still, but I’m pretty confident it will be this week. Going up against the 30th ranked defense against the rush wont hurt his cause either.
Dalvin Cook(MIN) $8,200: Dalvin should be licking his chops to go up against this Giants rush defense after what he just faced in week 4. We all know what Cook has done this season, and I look for him to get back on track and have a monster game this weekend!
Solid Starts ($6,000-$7,400)
David Johnson (ARI) $6,800: Johnson is in a great matchup this week against a Cinci defense on a short week. This defense is not what it has been in the past years. A few of the Cards players could be in our lineups this week!
Juju Smith-Schuster (PIT) $7,200: As we discussed on the podcast, the Ravens defense has not been able to contain any receiver out of the slot this season. Juju should feast this week, and make his fantasy owners finally happy this season.
Cheap Plugs ($5,900 and under)
Patriots DEF $5,500: If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. The Pats defense has been our play all year so far, and they have not disappointed. They have another great matchup this week against the stumbling Washington Redskins!
Larry Fitzgerald (ARI) $5,800: The ageless wonder still continues to put numbers up. As we talked about earlier, this Cinci defense is ripe for the picking. Plug in our boy Fitzy and enjoy the ride!
