FanDuel NFL DFS Lineup Picks for Week 6 - Daily Fantasy Football

FanDuel has 10 games available on the "Main Slate" in Week 6. With the Panthers and Buccaneers playing in London on Sunday, along with a handful of teams on a bye, options are more limited than ever. Luckily, as organizations continue to deal with a handful of injuries, the door is open for some guys to step up, while also exceeding their values in the process.

In this article, I will be providing you with daily fantasy football picks in FanDuel for October 13, 2019 (Week 6). These lineups can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on FanDuel. Be sure to also consult the NFL Depth Charts and Snap Counts for more critical information this week.

FanDuel DFS Quarterbacks - Week 6 Picks

Lamar Jackson - QB, vs. CIN ($8,200)

Marquise Brown may not play due to an ankle ailment, but even if he is out, Jackson has enough weapons to get the job done against Cincinnati. The sophomore had a rough outing against Pittsburgh by finishing with three interceptions, but he should able to hit at least 20 fantasy points against the Bengals in Week 6.

Russell Wilson - QB, @ CLE ($8,000)

Wilson has been one of the most reliable fantasy quarterbacks on the year and has a chance to make an impact in Week 6, especially in cash games, against an underwhelming Browns Defense. The veteran has been efficient, passing for 1,409 yards, while also throwing for 12 touchdowns and running in an additional two.

Case Keenum - QB, @ MIA ($6,500)

If you aren't looking to spend on guys like Patrick Mahomes and want to make a ballsy move in tournaments, check out Case Keenum. With Bill Callahan back in the saddle as a head coach, a run-first offense may be just what is needed to take some of the pressure off of the veteran signal-caller. Keenum hasn't been horrible this season and currently has 10 total touchdowns while throwing just three interceptions. Terry McLaurin will be around, so it's not unreasonable to think that he can get something done against a miserable Dolphins Defense.


FanDuel DFS Running Backs - Week 6 Picks

Mark Ingram II - RB, vs. CIN ($7,500)

Though Ingram has been yielding some touches to Gus Edwards, he has retained his fantasy relevancy throughout the season. The Bengals Defense has allowed 167.6 yards and seven touchdowns to runners on the year, making the former Saint a desirable option on Sunday against Cincy.

David Johnson - RB, @ ATL ($6,900)

Johnson hasn't practiced this week after experiencing back issues, but if he is able to suit up, he has a favorable matchup against a Falcons Defense that is allowing 20.50 fantasy points per game to rushers. If Johnson is out, however, feel free to swap in Chase Edmonds, who had 68 yards and a touchdown after the veteran exited against the Bengals in Week 5.

Adrian Peterson - RB, @ MIA ($5,300)

With Bill Callahan now in charge, the team will transition into a run-first offense. Peterson hasn't done much after taking over for Derrius Guice, who is out with a knee injury, but with a new regime in Washington, the former MVP could see some more touches against a weak Dolphins Defense.


FanDuel DFS Wide Receivers - Week 6 Picks

Michael Thomas - WR, @ JAC ($8,200)

The Jaguars may be without Jalen Ramsey in Week 6 after the 24-year-old continues to deal with a back issue. Though there is still a chance that he could play against the Saints, Thomas is fresh off of an 11-catch, 182-yard performance against the Buccaneers in Week 5, a game where the veteran also found the end zone twice. Look for him to do some damage, even if Ramsey is in the mix.

Terry McLaurin - WR, @ MIA ($6,400)

Despite the coaching change, McLaurin should continue to get looks from Case Keenum, who will likely start if he can play after dealing with a foot injury. After missing the Week 4 contest against the Giants with a bum hamstring, the rookie had his first game of the season in which he didn't score a touchdown, finishing with three catches for 51 yards against the Patriots. With Miami being a galaxy away from matching the defensive prowess of New England, McLaurin should get back on track on Sunday.

Tyler Boyd - WR, @ BAL ($6,400)

Boyd had 14 receptions last Sunday, and while the Bengals offensive line has been a train wreck, he will be the focal point for Andy Dalton against the Ravens. John Ross is out, and A.J. Green still hasn't returned, so the 24-year-old, who was targeted 14 times in Week 5, should continue to get his looks as the clear-cut No. 1 receiver in Cincy.

FanDuel DFS Tight Ends - Week 6 Picks

Austin Hooper - TE, @ ARI ($6,400)

Hooper may be the best available option against a Cardinals Defense that is allowing a league-worst 23.62 fantasy points to his position this season. The 24-year-old continues to get attention from Matt Ryan and currently ranks second in the league at his position in targets behind Darren Waller.

Darren Fells - TE, @ KC ($5,200)

Fells got some love from Deshaun Watson against Atlanta and had two touchdowns to show for it. The Chiefs Defense has been having trouble stopping opposing tight ends in 2019, allowing 15.02 fantasy points per game by way of 54 receptions for 321 yards. The ceiling is high for Fells on Sunday, so if you are looking to save some scratch, this may be the place to do it.


FanDuel DFS Defenses - Week 6 Picks

Cowboys Defense - DEF, @ NYJ ($5,000)

Though it may cost you some dough, the Cowboys defense can make some waves against one of the worst offenses in the league. Sam Darnold will be back under center, but don't expect too much offensive production from the Jets on Sunday.
