Week 6 DFS Cash Game Value Plays For FanDuel And DraftKings


Between the bye weeks and the early kickoff in London between the Buccaneers and Panthers we have just 20-teams in action on our main slate this week. However, even on a smaller slate than the last few weeks we should still have plenty of options for our value plays in cash game lineups.

An interesting week totals wise sees six of the 10 games having a total over 45, with just two below the 40-point mark. Having over half the games sit above 45 points should offer us plenty of options this week. However, it is actually a game sitting in the 40-to-45 point mark that is our most popular game for this article.

This article will take a look at some of the value plays for each week of the NFL. However, usually when you look at value plays for GPP you are swinging for the fences somewhat. Here I will be focusing on cash games and the necessity for slightly more safety as you are just looking to finish in the top half or so of the competition. Therefore, we are looking for cheaper players who should see a decent workload, be that pass attempts, targets or carries. Let's take a look at the cash value plays for Week 6 of the 2019 NFL season.

Week 6 Quarterback Cash Game Value Plays

Gardner Minshew, JAX vs. NO| DK: $5,000, FD: $7,500

Despite a couple of impressive performances recently the Saints Defense has actually had its problems against the quarterback this season, allowing an average of 24.5 FPPG so far through five weeks. Minshew is a solid play, having never had less than 16 fantasy points in any game this season, and reaching the heights of the high-20s last week. His groin injury is certainly worth watching heading into Sunday, and if it is a problem I have a nice easy pivot for you at exactly the same price.

Case Keenum, WSH @ MIA | DK: $5,000, FD: $7,200

Case Keenum was not good the last we saw him, there is no denying that. However, he was banged up and without his number one threat in the form of Terry McLaurin. He will have McLaurin back in this one and will be facing a defense that allows an average of 27 FPPG to opposing quarterbacks. It has been a weird season for Keenum so far, but the Redskins quarterback can put up a lot of points quickly if he gets rolling. This game should be close and has the potential to be high-scoring.

 

Week 6 Running Back Cash Game Value Plays

Adrian Peterson, WSH @ MIA | DK: $4,500, FD: $6,200

You are going to notice that this is a game I am targeting a lot this week because the two defenses are as bad as they come. The Dolphins run defense has been a mess, allowing over 20 FPPG on average to number one backs and 40 FPPG in total to opposing running backs. Peterson has been disappointing so far, but this is his week to get going. He received double-digit carries in Week 2-through-4 as the lead back, and if he gets that in this matchup then you could see a nice return for your team.

Kenyan Drake, MIA vs. WSH | DK: $4,400, FD: $5,700

This is somewhat put up or shut up week for Kenyan Drake in terms of the lead back in this offense. The Redskins Defense has allowed an average of 17.6 FPPG to opposing running backs, which is fine, but it is also certainly a situation to attack. The game scripts this season have not been good for Drake, but this game should be closer than some of the Dolphins other games, which means we could see Drake get double-digit carries for just the second time this season.

Carlos Hyde, HOU @ KC | DK: $4,400 FD: $5,900

The way to beat this Chiefs team is control the clock and beat them using your offense in a methodical method. The Texans will know this after last week and that is where Hyde can play a role. The Chiefs allow an average of just over 20 FPPG to opposing number one backs,

 

Week 6 Wide Receiver Cash Game Value Plays

Dede Westbrook, JAX vs. NO | DK: $5,100, FD: $5,800

Now this play could defend on Minshew but right now Westbrook is an easy selection for me in all DFS format. With Marshon Lattimore likely to be shadowing DJ Chark, Westbrook should be left to face up with PJ Williams out of the slot. The slot has been a massive weakness for the Saints this season, as they have allowed 21.5 FPPG to receivers out of the slot this season. Westbrook is a huge part of this offense, and should be able to bring home a big day for your team if Minshew is active.

Auden Tate, CIN @ BAL | DK: $4,500, FD: $5,500

Tate just about did the business last week for us thanks to his touchdown catch, and now he will get the chance to go again. I am expecting the Bengals to be chasing this game in the second half and the Ravens Defense is pretty mediocre on the back end. WR2's have averaged just over 13 FPPG against the Ravens this season, and Tate should be in line for some red-zone targets this week to try and take advantage of that.

Preston Williams, MIA vs. WSH | DK: $4,100, FD: $5,300

Let's go back to the fight for the bottom in Miami. I have spoken before about the Josh Rosen to Williams connection and it has been evident whenever Rosen has been in the game. Williams has seen 19 targets across the last two weeks and should get close to double-digits once again in this game. Washington allows an average of 18.6 FPPG to the top-two receivers on the opposing team, making both Williams and Devante Parker potential plays in this game.

 

Week 6 Tight End Cash Game Value Plays

Jared Cook, NO @ JAX | DK: $3,400, FD: $5,300

Cook is finally starting to come good for me and despite a bad matchup I am rolling with him again this week. 12 targets and a touchdown across the last two games has me believing that Cook is now a featured part of this offense and until I see otherwise I am rolling with Cook as much as I can.

Noah Fant, DEN vs. TEN | DK: $2,900, FD: $4,600

Seemingly the way to attack this Tennessee defense is the tight end position. Enter Noah Fant. Facing a team allowing an average of 15.6 FPPG to opposing tight ends, Fant is an absolute bargain at this price. His target share has been inconsistent this season, but this game should be one where the Broncos get him going, especially given how good the Titans are against backs and receivers this season.
