Week 6

(DraftKings Main Slate)


Geno Smith vs. Cardinals ($5,700)

What a story Geno Smith has been so far in 2022. Smith has averaged over 21 Fantasy points per game, and has thrown for over 300 yards in his last 2-of-3 starts. It helps when you have DK Metcalf, and Tyler Lockett at your disposal. He is also first in completion % (75.2) and he’ll get a Cardinals pass defense that has only two interceptions, and six sacks on the season. Kyler Murray on the other side is firmly in play too, but for the savings i’ll be stacking Smith with Lockett/Metcalf/Kenneth Walker.



Tom Brady @ Steelers ($6,300)

Tom Brady has thrown for 350+ yards, averaging 26 Fantasy points in back to back games. Brady and the Bucs will head to Pittsburgh week 6 up against a susceptible Steelers pass defense. A secondary that allowed four passing touchdowns to Josh Allen a week ago. Stacking Brady with Mike Evans/Cade Otton makes plenty of sense at an affordable cost.




Running Backs

Kenny Walker vs. Cardinals ($5,400)

With Rashaad Penny being lost for the season, and Travis Homer on IR, Kenneth Walker is slated to be the lead dog in the Seahawks back field going further. Walker is coming off a 14.8 fantasy performance week 5, and will get a Cardinals run defense that have allowed a 4.3 yards per carry average to running backs. This will be a popular game in DFS, and stacking it with multiple pieces could help us print. A Geno Smith, Kenneth Walker, DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett could be the nuts week 6.



Eno Benjamin @ Seahawks ($4,600)

James Conner was unable to practice Wednesday, which could be viewed as a maintenance day to allow his ribs to heal. Eno Benjamin filled in nicely with 11 touches and a touchdown. He’ll get a Seahawks defense week six that cant stop anyone. He’s too cheap, and he could be the future in Arizona. I’ll have Benjamin everywhere this weekend. Particularly if James Conner does sit.




Wide Receivers

Rondale Moore @ Seahawks ($4,200)

A healthy Rondale Moore is JUST what Kyler Murray needs to take attention from Marquise Brown. Moore caught 7-of-8 targets week five, and also had two carries. He also out snapped A.J. Green. Moore is going to eat from the vacated slot position once held down by Christian Kirk. Again, I will have heavy exposure to this game and there are enough values to jam in a stud of two from other games.



George Pickens vs. Buccaneers ($4,600)

There is a new sheriff in town by the name of Kenny Pickett, and he’ll be leaning on George Pickens for the foreseeable future. Pickens has caught 6-of-8 targets in back to back weeks for 80 or more yards. The touchdowns are on the horizon. The Steelers are eight-point home dogs week six, making Pickens the center of the passing game when trailing. The big day is coming for both Pickett and Pickens.




Tight Ends

Irv Smith @ Dolphins ($3,200)

Big Irv only trailed Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen in targets week five against the Bears. If we arent paying up for Mark Andrews, or Travis Kelce, then Smith is a viable punt as he’s seen no less than four targets in four straight games. A Kirk Cousins, Justin Jefferson, and Irv Smith Vikings stack could provide massive upside against a Dolphins team that is hurting.



Will Dissly vs. Cardinals ($3,100)

Will Dissly has found himself in the sea of mediocrity forever, but he always manages to score touchdowns. Despite not having more than four receptions in a single game this season, he’s scored touchdowns in his last 2-of-3 contests. I’ve expressed a ton of love for this game and there will be a ton of traction towards it. However, there are also numerous ways to stack it.




Defense/Special Teams

Patriots @ Browns ($2,900)
