Week 6 wasn’t my best effort, we are now 4/6 in cash game picks. DFS is a grind can’t let one week discourage you. I made some late swaps last week that just didn’t work out.
Lamar Jackson ($7,400)
Starting off at Quarterback I’m going Lamar Jackson this week. Jackson is having an incredible year so far and is doing everything that everyone said he couldn’t do. Lamar Jackson is averaging 290 yards per game passing. I think he is just too cheap here at just $7,400. Give me a guy averaging 26.6 DK points at that price tag I won’t be saying no. The Bengals defensively have actually been pretty solid this season, but Lamar Jackson is 5-0 vs The Bengals in his career.
D’Andre Swift ($6,000)
The Lions haven’t had many bright spots in fantasy this year; however, D’Andre Swift continues to roll. Swift is getting 11-13 carries a game which isn’t great, however he brings so much value on DraftKings with almost 7 targets a game. Those targets are very important on DraftKings with a full point PPR. I don’t expect this game to be close by any means, but where Swift eats is garbage time.
Darrell Henderson ($6,600)
Seems like the first time in ages that I’m not writing about Derrick Henry in this section. I will say this he’s still a great play. Let’s get into Henderson. First off Henderson is super consistent. Second off he’s the workhorse Running Back on the best offense in football. The Rams should have the lead almost the whole game vs a very back Lions run defense. Nothing to see here play Henderson.
Calvin Ridley ($6,600)
Calvin Ridley is another guy that is just too cheap at $6,600. What if I told you, you can play a guy at $6,600 against a Miami defense that ranks 30th against Wide Receivers and will get 10+ targets? Do I have your attention yet? Ridley took a $400 price decrease for not traveling to the London game, basically the only reason for the decrease in price. Ridley only has 1 Touchdown this season, I think that changes in Week 7.
Sterling Shepard ($5,000)
$5,000 for The Giants top Wide Receiver? Sign me up! Kadarius Toney is doubtful for this game. Shepard seems healthy again and when he’s healthy he’s averaging near 12 targets per game. Keep an eye on the news here as he is battling a hamstring issue; however, I expect him to play. You can always DM me on Twitter (@TheYetiExpress) or Facebook (Jared Good) and simply ask me who I’m replacing him with if he were to miss this game.
Dallas Goedert ($4,600)
In case you missed it last week, Zach Ertz was traded to The Arizona Cardinals. Goedert gets his role even more solidified than it already was. Philly really doesn’t have many receiving options. The Las Vegas Raiders rank 24th vs Tight-Ends. I expect this to be a close competitive game.
The Arizona Cardinals defense not only has been very good but also very good for fantasy as well. The Cardinals get The Houston Texans this week. The Cardinals are favored by a massive 17 points. I don’t pay up much for defense ever, but I think we should this week and $3,100 is very doable.
