Daily Fantasy Football Strategy Week 5

Week 4 Recap

Siemian sucked…Dalvin got hurt…Demaryius sucked…not enough Bilal…not enough Nuk Hopkins…Cowboys scored
negative points.

Hey, Charles Clay was awesome! Ok so week 4 wasn’t great for me, but if you got on Zeke and Le’Veon with Bilal Powell then you smashed in all formats. I just didn’t put the puzzle pieces together in any lineups.

Week 5 Preview


DFS Week 5 - QBsGiven time constraints, I’m going to keep the commentary brief here. Aaron Rodgers is always the top QB play most weeks. Palmer leads the lead in pass attempts and the Eagles have allowed over 700 yards to Rivers and Eli the past two weeks. For some strange reason I love the 49ers and Colts matchup to yield fantasy goodness so fire up Hoyer in cash at the cheap price. McCown is even cheaper and get the Browns. Do take note that on FantasyDraft Hoyer and McCown aren’t quite as discounted with the 10k floor capping their value.

Running Backs

DFS Week 5 - RBsLe’Veon is in the best possible spot this week against the terrible Jags run defense. Abdullah is getting volume with at least 17 touches in every game so far this year; I’m a fan of cheap volume. Ellington got 14 targets a week ago and while that’s unsustainable, 8ish targets is in play.

Wide Receivers

DFS Week 5 - WRsI love the Packers/Cowboys game for fantasy scoring and opposing WR1s correlate well so pairing Jordy and Dez makes a ton of sense in a high scoring affair (but will be terribly chalky I think so vary the rest of your lineup). If you’re rolling Palmer out in gpps, flip a 4 sided coin with Fitz/Jaron/John/J.J. and stack ‘em up.

Tight Ends

DFS Week 5 - TEsErtz, Kelce, and Clay are just all seeing massive volume. Engram is 2 nd in TE targets this year and comes at a significant discount versus those three. ASJ is a TE playing the Browns who just allowed something named Tyler Kroft to put up two TDs last week.


DFS Week 5 - DefenseI don’t like to overthink my DEF picks. I’m usually paying up for a big home favorite in a great matchup or finding a
cheap home favorite in a less desirable spot.

Good luck in week 5 Pas-Holes! Sorry for the abbreviated write-up this week but #lifehappens.
