If your season-long fantasy football league is struggling, you might want to consider playing one-week games on DraftKings for the chance to win all kinds of cash prizes.
Here’s our DraftKings lineup for Week 6.
Quarterback: Brian Hoyer, Chicago Bears ($5,800)
Hoyer has been surprisingly good and consistent for the Bears. He has thrown for 300 or more yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions in three consecutive games. Hoyer also has a favorable Week 6 matchup against a subpar Jacksonville Jaguars defense.
Running Backs: Lamar Miller, Houston Texans ($6,600); Ryan Mathews, Philadelphia Eagles ($4,900)
Miller’s streak of four games with 80 or more rushing yards ended in Week 5 against the tough Minnesota Vikings defense, but he should get back on track versus an Indianapolis Colts defense that gives up 4.6 yards per carry, which ranks 28th in the league.
Mathews has been inconsistent, but he’s a decent play in PPR leagues such as DraftKings, and he’s also going up against the league’s worst run defense. The Washington Redskins give up a league-high 5.1 yards per rush attempt.
Wide Receivers: Will Fuller, Houston Texans ($5,900); Eddie Royal, Chicago Bears ($4,000); Amari Cooper, Oakland Raiders ($7,500)
Fuller has three games of 80 or more receiving yards, and he has received six or more targets in all five games. He had a tough matchup against the Vikings last week, but he should bounce back Sunday against a weak Colts secondary.
Royal is a good value play this week against a terrible Jaguars defense. He also has caught at least seven passes in back-to-back games and posted a very respectable 14.9 DraftKings fantasy points per game this season.
Cooper had a monster game in Week 5 as the Raiders beat the San Diego Chargers. He’s also being targeted nearly 10 times per game and is averaging 91.5 receiving yards per contest.
Tight End: Martellus Bennett, New England Patriots ($4,500)
Bennett continues to be undervalued in DraftKings. He caught three touchdown passes in Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s return from suspension in Week 5, and he’ll remain the No. 1 tight end in the New England offense until Rob Gronkowski is fully healthy.
Flex: Sammie Coates, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers ($4,700)
Coates hauled in six receptions for 139 yards and two touchdowns on 11 targets in Week 5. It was an incredible performance that could vault him into the No. 2 receiver role in a prolific Steelers passing attack.
Defense: Pittsburgh Steelers ($3,400)
The Steelers are playing the Miami Dolphins, who are the fourth-lowest scoring team in the league and have put up just 24 points in their last two games combined. Pittsburgh also has forced six turnovers through five games.
