DFS First Look Pricing for Week 6 (Fantasy Football)
Each week see movement and fluctuation in prices. Like any type of market, some changes are needed, some are overcorrections, and some salaries are just downright wrong. Player pricing on the major DFS platforms is available to us well before we even start our process of building lineups and allows us to identify the inefficiencies, a tool within the toolbelt of someone who wants to win consistently in DFS.
Editor’s Note: At the time of publishing, FanDuel has yet to release their Week 6 salaries due to their recent statistical issue with their data provider. Check back in later today for update.
We have a couple of big-name QBs off the main slate this week including Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, and Kyler Murray, who all three play on Monday. If you’re playing the Primetime Slate, have some fun with those guys. With Dak Prescott going down and Russell Wilson on bye, this week there are a couple of studs and .then everyone else.
DraftKings: If you’re playing a stud on DK, I still would be open to Lamar Jackson in tournaments. He hasn’t returned value at all this season but he’s one game away from 300 yards and 100 on the ground. The Eagles are a salve and at $7700, he actually went down $200… Ben Roethlisberger has been solid if unspectacular this season finishing with 22 or more points in every contest. He’s a step down from the studs ($6,700) but versus Cleveland, he’s on the table… Matthew Stafford jumps out as a viable cash game option at $6,300. The Lions had a week of rest and the Jaguars rank 26th against fantasy QBs on the year… The lowest I’d go is probably Ryan Tannehill at $5,900. Coming off the Tuesday night game, his salary was basically left alone by DraftKings. There is upside to be had against a Houston squad he threw multiple TDs against in both games last year .. Kyle Allen at $5,100 is tempting but I just can’t do it.
