Week 5 Cash Game Picks on DraftKings
Ben Roethlisberger vs. Atlanta $6,900
This game has a 57 point Over/Under. 57 points! Both defenses are struggling while both offenses have the ability to put up points in bunches. We want exposure to this game and Big Ben looks like an intriguing option, especially with the Steelers playing at home. Roethlisberger leads the league in passing yards (1,414) and gets to play against a Falcons defense that ranks 25th in passing yards allowed per game and 27th in Pass DVOA.
Aaron Rodgers at Detroit $6,300
Rodgers has fought through injury over the past three weeks against formidable foes in the Vikings, Redskins, and Bills. Although the Lions look like a tough matchup according to their #2 ranking in passing yards allowed per game, that stat looks to be deceiving. The Lions also rank 28th in Pass DVOA and the Packers are currently favored in this contest with a current 51 point Over/Under.
