Week 6 is here, and it’s time to set your lineup for daily fantasy football games at FanDuel.
This week’s dream lineup features a few value picks, or players who should provide plenty of fantasy points at a cost that will allow you to fill out the rest of your roster with elite talent.
Here’s our FanDuel Week 6 lineup.
Quarterback: Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots ($9,000)
Tom Brady is the league MVP through five weeks with 1,387 passing yards, 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions. He should have another monster performance against the Indianapolis Colts’ 28th-ranked pass defense.
And, of course, Brady will be highly motivated to dominate Indy after it started the Deflategate drama that dominated his offseason.
Running Backs: Devonta Freeman, RB, Atlanta Falcons ($8,000); Dion Lewis, RB, New England Patriots ($7,200)
Freeman, who ran for 153 yards and a touchdown last week, has a fantastic matchup against the New Orleans Saints’ 31st-ranked run defense. Lewis is a dual threat in the passing and rushing attacks, and he’ll have a good chance for his fourth 100 total yards game versus a soft Colts defense.
Wide Receivers: A.J. Green, WR, Cincinnati Bengals ($8,100); Kendall Wright, WR, Tennessee Titans ($5,800); Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Arizona Cardinals ($7,500)
Wright has been inconsistent this season, but he does have two 100-yard performances and two touchdowns through four games. He is Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota’s No. 1 receiver and has a good matchup against a Miami Dolphins defense that lacks an elite cornerback.
Green has been targeted eight or more times in four of five games, and he’s averaging just under 100 receiving yards per game for an explosive Bengals offense. Fitzgerald has revived his career with a strong start to the campaign. He ranks fifth in the league in receiving yards, and his six touchdown receptions leads all players.
Tight End: Antonio Gates, San Diego Chargers ($5,500)
Gates made his 2015 debut in Week 5 and picked up right where he left off last season with nine catches for 92 yards and two touchdowns. He’s been a top-three fantasy tight end for most of his career, and there’s no reason to believe that will stop anytime soon.
Kicker: Blair Walsh, Minnesota Vikings ($4,100)
Walsh is 6 for 8 on field goal attempts and 8 for 9 on extra points. He’s made at least one field goal, with an average of two extra points in each of the last three games.
Defense: Tennessee Titans ($4,100)
The Titans have the league’s best pass defense with just 666 yards allowed, and they’re also facing Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill. What more needs to be said?
