Week 5 Pick’Em Selections on DraftKings
GPP: Philip Rivers vs. Oakland
Rivers is tied for second in the league in pass TDs (11) and has a stable of pass-catching weapons in Keenan Allen, Melvin Gordon, Austin Ekeler, Mike Williams, Tyrell Williams, Travis Benjamin, and Antonio Gates. He gets to play at home this week against a Raiders’ defense that ranks 18th in passing yards allowed per game and 24th in Pass DVOA.
Cash: Ben Roethlisberger vs. Atlanta
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.
