NFL DFS FanDuel GPP Picks for Week 6 (Fantasy Football)
Each week I’ll highlight my favorite GPP picks that I have some confidence heading into the weekend to put into my player pools. For more on GPP strategy and the mechanics of it, make sure you listen to our DFS GPP Overview episode. On the Fantasy Footballers DFS Podcast, Betz and myself will dive into a couple of these but this article is intended for DFS Pass subscribers to get the full lay of the land.
Selecting QBs for GPPs is about finding stacking partners that also give you leverage on the field. Remember QB roster percentages are relatively flat. Nevertheless, refer to the FanDuel cash game picks and then add these guys in the mix of players who are contrarian. Obviously, Mahomes, Lamar, and Herbert are stellar plays in both formats.
Patrick Mahomes @ WAS- $9,000
I need to hammer home how great of a play Mahomes is this week. In a GPP, you are spending up and declaring he will be the QB1 on this slate. At that price, many will look elsewhere. But his TD rate and yards per game skyrocket even further on the road in his career. This week is shaping up to be one of those nuclear performances where he goes for 400 + 4 TDs. Mahomes sports the best pass success rate and highest pass rate when leading in the NFL. Bet on the volume, the talent, and the team with the highest team implied total (31) on the slate.
