NFL DFS FanDuel GPP Picks for Week 6 (Fantasy Football)
Building winning GPP lineups, by definition, is tough. There are, however, some key things to look for when filling out your roster. First and foremost is ceiling; we want the players with potential to score the most points. Next is leverage; we want the players that fall through the cracks. Finally, we have to build a lineup that tells a winning story through game script and stacking.
For a deeper dive into GPP strategy, make sure to check out the Tournament Strategy episode that Borg and Betz put out over the offseason, and make sure to stay locked into the DFS and Betting Podcast.
A final note before diving into the picks. Don’t ignore Borg’s Cash Picks article. It pairs perfectly with my GPP picks article, as it’s typically a good idea to mix in some value plays, especially if they fit the GPP-winning story you write.
Justin Fields vs. MIN – $8,500
Jalen Hurts is facing a Jets defense that held Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes in check. While there’s always a chance Tua goes nuclear against the Panthers, with Carolina ranked 30th in fantasy points above expectation (PAE) to RBs, there’s also the script that sees Miami scoring the majority of their points on the ground. Sandwiched right between these two stud QBs, you’ll find Fields, my preferred option when paying up in GPPs this week. Chicago only has a team implied total of 20.5 points, but however many points they score, Fields will likely be responsible for them. With a questionable crew at RB, the Bears could rely even more on his rushing work, while he’s also been incredibly good through the air recently. I’m staying in the flames with Fields at home against a Minnesota defense ranked 25th in EPA/play allowed.
