Thursday Night DraftKings Showdown: Week 6
The Giants visit the Patriots to kick off Week 6. I’ll be bringing this Thursday night preview each week breaking down this single-game slate for DraftKings contests as part of the Footballers’ DFS Pass.
Boy oh boy is this a tough spot for the Giants. Their rookie QB is making only his fourth NFL start on the road in Foxborough and most of his offensive weapons are either highly banged up or out. That spells doom for New York who is facing a Patriots defense that ranks first in the league in both yards per game and points per game allowed.
The Patriots are current 16.5 point favorites and only one other team (Baltimore) is favored by double digits in Week 6. Thus, our process should point us towards the Patriots D/ST and their Kicker as well.
Captain Spot Choices
Tom Brady $17,700
Brady ranks eighth in the league in passing yards per game (281.8) and tied for ninth in Pass TDs per game (2) and gets to play at home against a Giants defense that ranks 29th in Pass DVOA, 30th in yards per game allowed, and 24th in points per game allowed.
