DFS Vegas Report for Week 6
Each week I’ll preview the five most important games from a Vegas total perspective and how to attack each game in DFS. I’ll highlight which players are the most stackable, who are recommended cash and GPP plays, and who looks like they should be faded. Listen and subscribe to the Fantasy Footballers’ DFS Podcast as we analyze these games for the main slate every Friday.
Week 5 Review
- Raiders @ Chiefs: Over, 72 total points – On the podcast this week, Kyle and I hit on the Chiefs stacks and wanted to build around them aggressively. We discussed wanting to bring it back with just one Raider, but contrarian Derek Carr stacks were probably in a few GPP winning lineups.
- Jaguars @ Texans: Under, 44 total points – This game was set up perfectly for a game stack with two bad defenses and potentially, two potent offenses. However, D.J. Chark left early and James Robinson was a big disappointment despite Deshaun Watson having a great game.
- Panthers @ Falcons: Under, 39 total points – This game screamed shootout potential, but the Falcons offense really disappointed on Sunday. Without Julio Jones, Matt Ryan couldn’t move the ball through the air as Todd Gurley stole the show for Atlanta on Sunday.
- Giants @ Cowboys: Over, 71 total points – As Kyle and I discussed on the podcast, this was our favorite game stack of the week given that we thought Daniel Jones and the Giants could continue to push the Cowboys’ high potent attack into putting up points. Dak Prescott‘s injury could change Dallas’ outlook moving forward, however.
- Bengals @ Ravens: Under, 30 total points – This was one of the more disappointing game stack opportunities, with the Bengals really struggling on Sunday. Joe Burrow threw for just 135 yards on Sunday.
Detroit Lions @ Jacksonville Jaguars, O/U: 52.5, DET -3
Last week, a banged up and bad Jaguars defense helped get Deshaun Watson and the Texans back on track, and we should expect the same with Matthew Stafford in Week 6. We have yet to see a ceiling game from Stafford in 2020, but that’s primarily because Kenny Golladay was injured in the first few weeks, but we can aggressively play Stafford/Kenny G stacks against a bottom-5 defense battling injuries.
