DraftKings Lineup Week 5

Here is what I’m playing this week. Reminder, I play mostly cash games.

There are three games with a Vegas total of 54 or higher this week, so much of this week’s success is going to be picking the correct one of those three to stack in all likelihood.

QBPatrick Mahomes vs. Raiders$7,700
RBJosh Jacobs vs. Chiefs$6,300
RBDavid Johnson vs. Jaguars$5,200
WRTyreek Hill vs. Raiders$6,900
WRDarius Slayton vs. Cowboys$4,800
WRBrandin Cooks vs. Jaguars$4,100
TEDarren Waller vs. Raiders$5,900
FLEXKareem Hunt vs. Colts$6,500
DEFTexans vs. Jaguars$2,600

I think this is the week the Cowboys’ defense tries to quiet the naysayers, but I’m still taking a small stab at that game with Slayton as I expect Dallas to get up early. The Jags/Texans game has the highest total of the week, and I’ve paired Johnson and Cooks from that game, while also taking the Houston defense to differentiate a little. Gotta love taking a D in the highest total game, right?

But there is clearly one game I am heavy on here. And bucking a trend to do it as well. The under has hit 14 straight times in Raiders’ division road games. And yet I’m still taking four players from that game–two Chiefs and two Raiders. Mahomes is going to be be close to 30 percent owned this week, making him pretty much cash game only. The rest of this lineup will likely be 10-20 percent owned, still high for any GPP plays.

GPP Play of the week: Olamide Zaccheaus, WR, ATL. Saw heavy usage last week and Julio Jones is out again against the Panthers in a high-total game. If you take a stab with him, you can afford to pay up to both Mahomes and Zeke. Both guys will be used heavily, but I’m not sure many lineups will have both together.
