DFS Week 6 Plays
Lets just keep this short and sweet… Time for the DFS Plays of the Week!
Premium Plays ($7,500 or more)
Mark Ingram (BAL) $7,500: Ingram should have a monster game this week. He’ll be facing the second to last defense against opposing running backs. We discussed this last week, Cincinnati’s defense is just not up to par this season. Play the matchups!
Alvin Kamara (NO) $7,900: We saw CMC destroy this Jags rush defense last week. I don’t expect the same number, but something at least close! Kamara and CMC have a similar skill set, and Sean Payton will find a way to expose this mismatch.
Solid Starts ($6,000-$7,400)
Tyler Boyd (CIN) $6,400: I have stayed against the Bengals offense as much as possible this season, buuutttt this matchup is just too juicy to ignore. We talked about it last week as well; the Ravens defense against slot receivers is flat out terrible. With Boyd running 65.7% of his routes out of the slot he should have a great day!
Gardner Minshew (JAX) $6,900: Minshew Magic himself! He’ll be up against the 30th ranked defense to opposing QBs in the New Orleans Saints. The talent is there at corner, but they’re just not living up to it this season. This one should be a high scoring affair, and this gunslinger should feast.
Cheap Plugs ($5,900 and under)
Washington DEF $4,200: Our first week not playing the Pats defense… and that’s only because we can’t! Washington should be a good fill in this week though! Mario and I spoke about it on Wednesday’s podcast; we expect this defense to play its hearts out for the interim head coach. It doesn’t hurt they’re playing the worst offense in the league too!
Christian Kirk (ARI) $5,600: Kirk is up against the worst defense to opposing receivers in the league. He has had a great rapport with rookie QB Kyler Murray so far this season. I’m looking for a big game from him this week, just keep a close eye on his status close to game time. He’s been on the injury report this week. If he can’t go, plug in his partner in crime Larry Fitzgerald. They cost the same, and Kirks absence would only bolster Fitzys value!
