NFL DFS FanDuel GPP Picks: Week 5 (Fantasy Football)
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, Borg and a special guest, Jason “Big Shimmy” Moore himself, 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. You can always go back to guys that recently underperformed and hope their roster percentages come in lower.
The three QBs I list in the FD Cash picks are the best plays this week. Nevertheless, add these guys to the mix of players who are contrarian.
Justin Herbert @ CLE-$8200
It was nice to see the Chargers offense bounce back last week as Herbert threw for 342 & two TDs. Despite all their O-Line woes, he’s been sacked at the lowest rate among QBs and this team throws inside the 10 more than any other team in the NFL. This is one of my favorite spots for a shootout, especially after these two teams combined for nearly 90 points last year in their Week 5 matchup.
