Week 6 is here! DraftKings decisions look to be a little easier with some positive matchups up and down the schedule. Take a look here before you submit that lineup on Sunday.
Week 5 of the NFL season was a wild ride. It was filled with injuries and big performances. This upcoming Week 6 will take some quality decisions to keep making money on DraftKings.
This is another week where there are four teams on a bye. Those teams are the Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys, Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills. That is certainly a good amount of fantasy football production, but less than a week ago.
Before jumping into breaking down Week 6, I want to look back at last week’s lineup. The lineup disappointed unfortunately.
QB: Aaron Rodgers $8100 (24.04)
RB: Isaiah Crowell $4700 (8.7)
RB: Marshawn Lynch $5100 (12.3)
WR: Jordy Nelson $8100 (10.4)
WR: Jarvis Landry $5800 (15.4)
WR: Golden Tate $6300 (9.8)
TE: Hunter Henry $3800 (13.2)
FLEX: John Brown $5100 (10.6)
D/ST: New York Jets $3000 (8.0)
Aaron Rodgers and the Packers provided a thrilling victory over the Dallas Cowboys. Unfortunately, the touchdowns tossed were not to Jordy Nelson. The rest of the team disappointed with not one big scorer throughout the list. There were a few touchdowns but overall the lineup was a disappointment.

The New England Patriots get to play the New York Jets coming off a bye. There are few teams better coming off an empty week than the Tom Brady-led Patriots.
The Arizona Cardinals proved to be a target for any second wide receiver and quarterbacks after the Eagles’ Carson Wentz torched them.
Finally, the dominant rookie running backs both have plus matchups. The Jacksonville Jaguars’ Leonard Fournette battles the worst run defense in the league. Kareem Hunts, the league’s leading rusher, plays the second-worst run defense in the Pittsburgh Steelers.
This article excludes any game not played during the day on Sunday. The Eagles-Panthers matchup on Thursday night as well as the Sunday and Monday night games are not included in this list.
