DraftKings Lineup Week 6

Here is what I’m playing this week.

The highest predicted team score of the week is the Minnesota Vikings, with 28.5, against Atlanta. I’m skipping over Kirk Cousins this week, however, and going with three lineups with three quarterbacks from that next tier down in Vegas totals, two from the same game.

Cash Game Lineup

QBRyan Tannehill vs. Texans$5,900
RBDerrick Henry vs. Texans$7,300
RBAlexander Mattison vs. Falcons$7,200
WRAdam Thielen vs. Falcons$7,300
WRTerry McLaurin vs. Giants$5,700
WRAJ Brown vs. Texans$5,600
TEIrv Smith Jr. vs. Falcons$2,500
FLEXJonathon Taylor vs. Bengals$6,400
DEFBengals vs. Colts$2,100

As you can see, I’m stacking Tannehill/Henry/Brown here, while also still getting plenty of that Vikings offense with Mattison, Theilen and Smith. Those two offenses have the highest implied team totals on the slate at 28.5 and 28. With McLaurin, I have to hope he doesn’t draw James Bradberry too much, as he has become one of the best lock-down corners in the league. The Taylor play is simply hoping he finally gets the volume to match the talent as a 7.5-point home favorite.

Who’s Down With GPP?

I don’t play GPP too often, but rolled with a couple of lineups this week.

QBRyan Fitzpatrick vs. Jets$5,900
RBDerrick Henry vs. Texans$7,300
RBMike Davis vs. Bears$7,000
WRAdam Thielen vs. Falcons$7,300
WRAJ Brown vs. Texans$5,600
WRChase Claypool vs. Browns$5,200
TEIrv Smith Jr. vs. Falcons$2,500
FLEXKareem Hunt vs. Steelers$6,900
DEFBengals vs. Colts$2,100
QBDeshaun Watson vs. Titans$7,000
RBDerrick Henry vs. Texans$7,300
RBKareem Hunt vs. Steelers$6,900
WRCalvin Ridley vs. Vikings$7,800
WRAJ Brown vs. Texans$5,600
WRChase Claypool vs. Browns$5,200
TEIrv Smith Jr. vs. Falcons$2,500
FLEXDarius Slayton vs. Redskins$5,400
DEFVikings vs. Falcons$2,300

As you an see, I’m heavy on the Texans-Titans game this week. Henry and Brown are in all three lineups. As is Irv Smith from the Vikings. He is min price this week and is getting more routes each which. He only needs a handful of catches to reach value. Claypool feels a lot like chasing after his monster game last week. He will be pretty popular this week and that is a selection I may wind up regretting. I also have Hunt in both GPP lineups. The Steelers have the best pass rush in the league, and I’m hoping the solution is dump offs to Hunt, not Hunt staying in to block.

Happy hunting.
