Home I Latest News I The Best DFS Picks For NFL Week 6
See who are the best picks for NFL Week 6 and dominate the fantasy leaderboards.
After five weeks of the NFL regular season the Kansas City Chiefs are still leading the pack, being the only team with a 5-0 record. This Sunday though, they face the tough Steelers. Big Ben couldn’t disprove the fantasy experts who dubbed him a “5-game wonder”, but the presence of RB Le’Veon Bell, WR Antonio Brown, and a fearsome defense are still keeping Pittsburgh in the race for the AFC crown.
The Browns, the Giants, and the Niners are among the biggest disappointments, as they failed to register a single win so far. DE Myles Garrett, number one overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, is unable to unleash his full potential due to ankle issues. QB Eli Manning is out of receivers due to recent injuries of his four main wide receivers. And the 49-ers? Well, they might just be out of luck.
This NFL week brings us fairly easy-to-predict matchups, which is great for the DFS players. But we should be wary, as surprises always happen when you least expect them. Now let’s dive in and try identifying the best and safest DFS picks for NFL Week 6.
What a rookie! Picked in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft from Clemson, Deshaun Watson is now showing his great abilities. The kid just recently turned 22 and is already one of the toughest guys in the QB position. He is not afraid to take the initiative and leave the pocket, do an acrobatic move, or even make a tackle if needed.
We saw him flawlessly taking down Chris Jones from Kansas who had recovered a fumble in the Week 5 game against the Chiefs. Watson has a record of 179 rushing yards so far, which is actually more than 29 of the NFL running backs. He also has tied Ray Buivid, Matthew Stafford, and Jameis Winston for the record of most passing touchdowns in a single game by a rookie quarterback.
This Sunday his Texans receive the Browns – one of only three teams without a win so far, and also one of the biggest disappointments given their updated player roster. This is a great chance for Watson to improve his career stats and even set some new records.
By the way, this kid donated his first game check, worth around $27,000, to people affected by Hurricane Harvey.
The time has come for the veteran Patriot, Danny Amendola, to step up and be Tom Brady’s right hand. Amendola is an established returner, now finally getting the chance to play on the wide receiver spot. With all the injuries in New England, including TE Rob Grongowski (thigh), Amendola is one of the primary passing targets now.
When Gronk got injured and the situation for the Pats looked terrible, Amendola rose up and posted a season high in receptions. His stats of 267 yards from 23 receptions so far looks better than RB Mike Gillislee’s 246. This Sunday the New England Patriots go to New York hoping to register their fourth win and Danny Amendola will be both receiving punts and catching QB Tom Brady’s passes.
The match between the Los Angeles Rams and the Jacksonville Jaguars promises to be a running back dogfight. It is Todd Gurley versus Leonard Fournette – both great players and key weapons for their teams. Fournette has a slight advantage though. First, he is leading in yardage – 466 to 405, second – he’s scored 5 touchdowns against Gurley’s four, and third – Todd Gurley failed against the Seahawks in Week 5.
Leonard Fournette is a physical running back smashing his way through defenders. He is the main reason why the Jaguars are the current NFL leaders in rushing yards per game – 165.2. The Rams are doing great this season but are not known for having a good defense. Jacksonville on the other hand, has guys like the 300 lbs veteran DE Calais Campbell with 6 sacks in 5 games so far.
Big Ben is looking tired and his performance is decreasing. Against the Chiefs in Kansas he will need his running weapon more than ever. For the five games of the regular season so far, RB Le’Veon Bell has gained 371 yards for the Steelers. His counterpart from Kansas has brought almost double that amount but this Sunday will be facing one of the toughest defenses in the league.
The modern “Steel Curtain” is currently ranked second overall by the NFL, so Bell is the safer pick here.
Speaking of tough defenses, this year the Broncos have the toughest one. Still number one in the NFL defense leaderboard, Denver’s two cousins, Domata and Kyle Peko, are among the most fearsome nose tackles in the NFL. Combine them with DE Derek Wolfe, DE DeMarcus Walker, and old dogs like OLB Von Miller, and you get the strongest defense this year.
The Super Bowl 50 champions focused on improving their offensive and defensive line during the offseason and are now receiving the fruit of their effort. On average, this regular season the Broncos’ defense has allowed around 50 rushing yards per game. On Sunday the Broncos go for an easy win against the New York Giants.
We have a team that can stop any run going against a team without 4 of its main wide receivers, including the superstar Odell Beckham Jr. Without passing options, QB Eli Manning will be forced to rely more on the run game. But in order to win a game by rushing against the Broncos’ defense this season, you would need a miracle.
