NFL DFS DraftKings Cash Picks: Week 6 (Fantasy Football)
NFL DFS cash games are all about building a high-floor lineup that can win in head-to-heads, 50/50s, and double-ups. Each week I’ll highlight my favorite cash game picks that I have some confidence heading into the weekend to put into my player pools.
For more on cash game strategy, be sure you listen to our DFS Cash Overview episode. Be sure you’re also subscribed to the DFS Podcast where Kyle and I go through the main slate every Friday and recap each slate on Tuesdays. Let’s get after it!

Matthew Stafford $6,100 vs. ARI
Stafford hasn’t really popped for fantasy…yet. Most of that can be explained by a lack of TDs. Through five games, Stafford’s 2.5% TD rate is an outlier low number considering his career average at 4.2%. The yardage and pass attempts have been there, however, and this matchup is one of the best on the slate. Stafford is second in the NFL in drop backs, and last season with Cooper Kupp back in the lineup, the Rams logged their highest pass rate over expectation of the season. Arizona ranks dead last in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed to opposing QBs, they’ve allowed the fifth-most passing yards in the league, and they’re 30th in EPA per pass attempt. The Rams’ 27.8 team implied total is the second-highest on the slate behind only the Dolphins.
