DFS Digging In The Crates Daily 2020 Week 6 DraftKings
DraftKings (Main Slate: 11 Games)
Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. Jets ($5,900)
Regardless of his age or team Ryan Fitzpatrick seems to show up and thrive every single season and play lights out. Fitz went to San Francisco and shredded the Niners week 5 for 350 yards and three touchdowns. He’ll see a Jets at home this week that was just torched by Kyler Murray. Myles Gaskin (Crate favorite) gives the Dolphins some stability in their ground game, and he has weapons all around in Davante Parker, Preston Williams, and Mike Gesicki. The Dolphins are heavy favorites (-9) and Fitz is on the cheap, again. He can be used in cash games and has the upside for tournaments. I’ll use him in stacks with Gaskin and a pass catcher. Jamison Crowder is a good run back option.
Ryan Tannehill vs. Texans ($5,900)
Despite the Covid-19 issues surrounding the Titans recently, the Titans balled out at home against a fantastic Bills team. A.J. Brown came back with vengeance, and Ryan Tannehill flourished. The Titans will get a softer test against the Texans at home week 6. Using Tannehill in a stack with A.J. Brown or Jonnu Smith makes perfect sense and then running it back with Will Fuller or Brandin Cooks. It’s an affordable, high upside stack that can allow us to pay up elsewhere and take down a GPP. Tannehill has also given fantasy owners some sneaky rushing equity, which is massive on DraftKings. He can be used in cash games or tournaments based on the friendly match up.
Bonus: Kirk Cousins vs. Falcons ($6,100)
Myles Gaskin vs. Jets ($5,400)
Myles Gaskin has now made the Crate list in back to back weeks. Initially he was slated to have a pass catching role with the Dolphins, now he’s the “Bell Cow”. He’s outperformed Matt Breida and Jordan Howard so far averaging close to 20 touches over the last three games. He is also punched one in from the goal line. This is the script we want for a running back. Gaskin will see a positive game script (most likely), involvement in the passing game, and goal line work. At a value. Sign me up for cash games or tournaments at his price point. I’ll be using Ryan Fitzpatrick and Gaskin in some stacks week 6.
Devonta Freeman vs. Washington ($4,900)
Hello Darkness my old friend, Fantasy Owners are getting acquainted with Devonta Freeman again. At a bargain. More volume on the cheap in a sweet home matchup against Washington. We can anticipate 15-20 touches, including passing down work, and usage inside the five yard line. He’s the kind of volume running back we want to own if we’re paying up for wide receivers (a good week to do so). He’s been a pleasant surprise replacing Saquon Barkley so far on a Giants team that seems hopeless. Freeman is a good run back option with the underpriced Terry McLaurin. I’ll have shares of Devonta Freeman week 6 based on his progression, and volume.
Bonus: David Montgomery @ Panthers ($5,800)
Darnell Mooney @ Panthers ($3,000)
Darnell Mooney is the bare minimum on DraftKings week 6. The ultimate Crate price, allowing us to spend wherever we want. Mooney has gotten 19 targets over the last three weeks on an erratic Bears offense that has had QB issues. Allen Robinson is getting all the targets and we’d have to imagine defensive coordinators would make him a priority. Thus, less attention on Mooney. It would appear that Mooney is the new number two wide out and he doesn’t have to do much to pay off his salary. I don’t trust Nick Foles but there aren’t a ton of mouths to feed in Chicago. He’s a last piece salary saver with upside.
Travis Fulgham vs. Ravens ($4,400)
Travis Fulgham. Who? The now number one wide receiver for the Eagles. Opportunity knocked and Fulgham has seized the moment. He’s caught 12-of-16 targets over the last two weeks for 209 yards and two touchdowns. The Eagles are home under dogs and Carson Wentz may be forced to throw more than he wants while playing catch up. That’s a beautiful thing for us fantasy players. We tend to jump on recency bias and it bites us a week late. My line of thinking here is 1.Price 2.Usage 3. Negative game script. He’s projecting well again, but the decision on playing his will come down to ownership. The Ravens are no easy task, but if he’s force fed, it won’t matter. He’s a high upside tournament piece week 6.
Bonus: N’Keal Harry vs. Broncos ($4,500)
Trey Burton vs. Bengals ($3,100)
Trey Burton was supposed to be the next best thing after getting paid big money by the Bears and the plan didn’t go as such. He’s now buried on the Colts depth chart. However, with Mo Allie-Cox potentially sitting, and Jack Doyle having a minimal role, wheels up week 6 for Trey Burton by way of opportunity. We know that Phillip Rivers loves his tight ends and he may lean on Burton Sunday. At his cost, it doesn’t take much to pay off his salary and tight end does not offer that much allure on this slate. Burton has gotten 11 targets over the past two week. He’s a cash game play as his upside is unknown.
Austin Hooper @ Steelers ($3,900)
Austin Hooper was an elite tight end in 2019 despite missing three games with the Falcons but ended up signing a lucrative deal with the Browns this offseason. His role has plateaued through five weeks. He’s gotten 17 targets over the last two weeks and we’re seeing signs of an increased rapport with Baker Mayfield. The game script against the Steelers week 6 is difficult but Mayfield is going to be chasing points, throwing the ball. I like this spot in tournaments for Hooper. Dollar for dollar he’s projecting as one of the best tight ends on the main slate.
Bonus: Logan Thomas @ Giants ($3,300)
Dolphins vs. Jets ($2,900)
I’m going to correlate Myles Gaskin and the Miami Dolphins defense in many stacks week six. The Dolphins defense are gelling! They are creating turnovers, putting pressure on opposing QB’s, stuffing the run, and were able to take George Kittle out of the game week 5. Sign me up against a horrendous Jets team at home.
