Digging In The Crates

Week 6

DraftKings (Main slate)







Gardner Minshew vs. Saints ($5,000)

It’s Minshew Mania in Jacksonville! They have a QB who appears to be a gun slinger. It’s a new look given their recent ground and pound approach with solely depending on Leonard Fournette and their defense. DJ Chark and Dede Westbook are the real deal, making it easier for Minshew to transition. He’ll get a Pace up game against the saints at home and it may be a shoot out. He can use his legs as well! The Saints struggle on the road and this comes off as a no brainer to me. He’s a solid cash game and tournament play week 6.

Kirk Cousins vs. Eagles ($5,200)
I touted Kirk Cousins last week and we’re back on him again week 6 at home, against a porous and injury decimated Eagles secondary. He threw plenty and maximized Adam Thielen who was complaining earlier in the week. Cousins has come to the realization that in order to keep up in a pass happy league they’re going to do more than ride Dalvin Cook. I am about as comfortable with Cousins as I am Minshew week 6 in both cash games and tournaments. There is too much talent on the Vikings offense to not use it all on the ground and through
the air.

Bonus: Josh Rosen




Running backs




Chase Edmonds vs. Falcons ($4,600)

David Johnson is hurt and he is highly questionable to play week 6 against the Falcons at home. If that is the case then Chase Edmonds becomes a plug and play free square. Truth be told, he’s looked more slippery than David Johnson. The Falcons have holes all over their defense. If DJ sits use Edmonds in both cash games and tournaments. He’s a great salary saver with a safe floor if he starts.




Kenyan Drake vs. Redskins ($4,400)

Where art thou Kenyan Drake? I’m heavily invested in him with Best Balls and he’s ultimately become the victim of circumstance. However, Josh Rosen is at the helm and Drake gets a dreamy matchup against another terrible team in the Washington Redskins week 6. Drake has had 27 carries and 17 targets over the last three games and he’ll get to serve as Josh Rosen’s backfield safety valve. This is the week he breaks out if there is going to be a break out at all. The Skins are a bottom four defensive unit. Drake will thrive in the passing game. Use him in tournaments.

Bonus: Chris Thompson





Wide receivers




Mohamed Sanu @ Cardinals ($4,500)

Mohamed Sanu has had 10 or more fantasy points in four of his first five games in 2019. When we think Falcons it usually starts with Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Austin Hooper. Sanu is steady and consistently reliable in PPR formats. He’s caught 14-of-17 targets over the last three weeks with a touchdown. The Cardinals have been a mess in their secondary and Sanu will surely be forgotten about again. He can be used in tournaments and cash games but he’s basically a safe salary saver.

DeVante Parker vs. Redskins ($4,200)
The fantasy roller coaster for DeVante Parker continues and we’ve all had a ticket on the emotional ride. The good news is that Josh Rosen has looked competent and Parker could be used as his primary red zone weapon going forward. Last week Parker caught 4-of-4 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown. I’m optimistic, today. His matchup is as good as it gets (like Kenyan Drake) and his price and upside are just too good. We mustn’t fret over Parker’s past trauma towards us and believe that he may turning a corner. I’m cautiously optimistic about him in tournaments. Preston Williams is the cash game play.

Bonus: DK Metcalf




Tight Ends




Gerald Everett vs. 49ers ($3,600)

Let’s be clear. No one has been more optimistic about Gerald Everett than I have been over the past couple years. He has caught 12-of-19 targets over the last two weeks and Jared Goff is finally seeing the light. With Brandin Cooks in concussion protocol it could translate to more Everett targets if Cooks sits. The price is perfect here. Use him in tournaments and cash games.

Jared Cook @ Jaguars ($3,400)
All it has taken is for Drew Brees to get hurt, and Teddy Bridgwater stepping in to make Jared Cook come alive. Cook has 12 targets over the last two weeks. Bridgewater has used Cook as the safety valve and maximized his freakish talent. The opportunities are trending upwards and Sean Payton wants that. Cook is the perfect tournament tight end on the cheap week 6.

Bonus: Delanie Walker




Defense/Special Teams




Broncos vs. Titans ($3,100)

The Broncos defense is alive! Barely. They have gradually turned things around the last two weeks defensively and get Marcus Mariota at home. There are safer cash games options but i’ll have some Broncos with Phillip Lindsay teams.
