NFL DFS DraftKings GPP Picks: Week 6 (Fantasy Football)
For the purposes of this article, I’ll be highlighting plays that I believe have paths to a ceiling outcome at reduced roster percentage, but that doesn’t mean we can’t sprinkle in some cash plays into our lineup as well. For my full breakdown on DraftKings for Week 6 cash games, be sure to check out my DraftKings cash picks here.
When building your GPP lineups, be sure to reference our Roster Percentage Report as well as our DFS Rankings in order to identify plays that have a solid projection yet may be undervalued by the field. In order to compete in GPPs, we’ll want to utilize a combination of cash plays and GPP plays in order to build solid lineups without sacrificing too much in the way of projection. For more on how to use roster percentages and build strong GPP lineups, be sure to check out this episode of the DFS Podcast.

Lamar Jackson $8,100
Because we have so many elite QB plays on the slate that can really separate from the pocket passers, I’ll be taking my shots on these guys in tournaments. While Josh Allen is a better play in a vacuum, he’s also going to be way more popular. Meanwhile, we have Lamar sitting at about 6-8% in tournaments as of Friday, and we’re over the moon for Mark Andrews this week. Don’t be afraid to build a contrarian lineup with Lamar and MANdrews. The Giants rank 24th in pass defense DVOA, which is wild considering their QB schedule. To date, they’ve faced Ryan Tannehill, Baker Mayfield, Cooper Rush, Justin Fields and Aaron Rodgers. Plus, the G men have several defensive backs on the injury report this week. If any of those guys miss, this is an even better spot for Jackson and Mark Andrews.
