FanDuel Quarterbacks - Week 6 DFS Picks

Deshaun Watson - QB, HOU vs BUF (FD - $8,100)

Watson could go a bit overlooked this week since this game comes in with an over-under set at 41, which is one of the two lowest games on the slate. Regardless of that, Watson has shown to be viable in all formats each week, with a solid floor and a good ceiling. He has over 300 yards in four straight games and has multiple touchdowns in three of his last four games. Watson also has 16 rushing attempts in his last two games, showing he is getting back to what we saw from him last season. He has the rushing touchdown upside, which is always great in tournaments.

Jameis Winston - QB, TB @ ATL (FD - $7,400)

Winston is being talked up by many across the industry as a cash game play this week since he has a few different things going in his favor. First off, this game has an over-under 58, which is highest on the slate, so plenty of fantasy points to go around. Second, he is up against the Falcons, who come in with the 28th DVOA versus the pass and the 31st DVOA vs the rush. Winston has always shown the ability to throw for over 300 yards and multiple touchdowns, but it may come with an interception or two.


FanDuel Running Backs - Week 6 DFS Picks

Carlos Hyde - RB, CLE vs LAC (FD - $6,600)

Hyde has seen 17 or more total touches in every single game this season and is now up against the Chargers, who come in with the 21st DVOA vs the rush and the 16th DVOA vs the pass. We have this game coming in with an over-under set at 44.5 and is being talked up as a game which could hit the over. He only played on 35% of the snaps last week, but prior to that, he was at or above 58% of the snaps for three straight weeks.

Tevin Coleman - RB, ATL vs TB (FD - $6,300)

Coleman may be seeing the starting role again for Atlanta since Devonta Freeman is dealing with yet another injury. When Freeman was out earlier in the year, Coleman played on 63%, 78%, and 57% of the snaps in Weeks 2-4. This game has an over-under set at 58, so you want, no, need to be getting exposure to this game somehow, and Coleman is a great option. He had double-digit rushing attempts in that three-week span, along with 10 total targets.


FanDuel Wide Receivers - Week 6 DFS Picks

Quincy Enunwa - WR, NYJ vs IND (FD - $5,800)

Enuwa had a bad game last week, but the Jets put up over 300 yards on the ground, so he really didn't have to do too much. Feeling a big bounce-back game for him this week, as he still has 29% of the teams total market share. That target share is massive and shown by his eight or more targets in the first four weeks of the season. He should see a good amount of Colts cornerback Quincy Wilson, who is giving up 0.68 fantasy points per route run this season.

Tyler Boyd - WR, CIN vs PIT (FD - $6,300)

This game also has a higher over-under which is set at 52.5, so plenty of offense to go around here. Boyd has seven or more targets in each of his last four games and is being targeted on in the passing game on 24% of his routes run. With that usage, he has been able to rack up 0.47 fantasy points per route run, which should put him in a prime spot, since A.J. Green will most likely be shadowed by Joe Haden.


FanDuel Tight End - Week 6 DFS Pick

Kyle Rudolph - TE, MIN vs ARI (FD - $6,200)

Tight ends are generally pretty tough to get right on a week to week basis, but Rudolph has shown to be pretty consistent as of late. He has five or more receptions in four straight games, 48 or more yards in three of those games, but only one touchdown in that span. When the Vikings are in the red zone this season, he is their go-to guy, with a 32% market share of targets.


FanDuel Defense - Week 6 DFS Pick

Carolina Panthers at Washington Redskins (FD - $3,900)

The Panthers are the 10th most expensive defense on the slate this week, so you really aren't paying up for some potential points. The have three sacks and six intercetions in the past two weeks and while the intercpetion rate isn't sustainable, the QB pressure is what you should be after. Thisg game only has an over-under at 44.5, which isn't too high, so a nice spot to fade some of the more expensive teams in lower scoring games, ie, Jaguars, Vikings.
