Week 6 Cash Picks on FanDuel
Drew Brees vs DET $8,600 vs Matthew Stafford @ NO $8,500
Brees and the New Orleans Saints are fourth in the NFL in passing yards per game, and they’ve allowed the fifth most per game. Their opponent, the Detroit Lions have allowed the sixth most passing yards per game. Brees and Stafford are both in play this week. Detroit has allowed the fourth-fewest rushing yards per game, so Brees should be throwing, plus he’s at home. Stafford doesn’t have a 300-yard passing game yet, and he’s only thrown three touchdowns in his last three games. Certainly a game against the Saints should fix that, but Brees has a higher ceiling.
