DraftKings Week 5 Tournament and Cash Game Picks

Week 4 Recap –

Cash Game Line Up – 134.7 points, The core of Cook/Kamara/Elliot worked out great. Brandin Cooks really let us down with a big fat 0. Just gotta stick to the process and it will all come together.

Tournament Line Up – VOID. Had to make last minute changes that didnt get into the article because of the Patriots Chiefs game.

CASH GAME PLAYS

Quarterback

Gardner Minshew II, Jacksonville Jaguars @ Houston Texans – $6,200

The Mustache should throw a season high amount of passes this Sunday. This match up against Houston has a consensus over under of 54.5 according to Vegasinsider.com. Having D.J. Chark back helps Minshew tremendously.

Running backs

Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Kansas City Chiefs vs. Las Vegas Raiders – $6,800

Clyde is seeing all of the high value touches in this potent offense and I swear this Raiders offense just plays prevent defense every single down. They play a serious run funnel and I expect Andy Reid’s game plan will be to attack them in that manor.

Jerick McKinnon, San Francisco 49ers vs. Miami Dolphins – $5,800

**CASH GAME LOCK OF THE WEEK**

McKinnon has been a WORKHORSE for the niners. He is game script proof in an offense that will be able to destroy this Dolphins team in whatever way they see fit. Best value RB on this slate.

D’Ernest Johnson, Cleveland Browns vs. Indianapolis Colts – $4,700

Free square RB of the week. When you have such an efficient running game like Cleveland does, any starting back that will see 10+ touches that is priced under 5k is an easy play.

Wide Receivers

D.J. Chark, Jacksonville Jaguars @ Houston Texans – $6,500

Here’s a guy that has all the attributes of a true alpha receiver. With Minshew’s potential passing volume and how he leans on Chark heavily, D.J. could be the number one overall receiver this week.

Diontae Johnson, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Philadelphia Eagles – $5,600

Thank the lord Johnson is out of the concussion protocol and had an extra week to rest. The number one receiver in this offense, priced under 6k is easy money.

Robby Anderson, Carolina Panthers @ Atlanta Falcons – $5,900

I keep seeing D.J. Moore everywhere. Everyone wants Moore in their line up. How many more weeks do we need to see that Robby Anderson is the number one target for Teddy Bridgewater. Trust me, I am a huge Moore truther but Anderson has been getting open and is seeing a bunch of catchable targets. Robby Anderson is the cash game play, not D.J. Moore.

Tight End

Evan Engram, New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys – $4,600

I have been waiting for this game since the beginning of the year. The Giants have faced one of the hardest schedules in the NFL through the first 4 games of the season. With Sterling Shepard still out of the line up, Engram should see all of the high percentage targets this Sunday and there should be plenty.

Defense/Special Teams

Baltimore Ravens vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Best value defense against a rookie QB. I know he’s Joe Burrow but still.

TOURNAMENT PICKS

Quarterback

Daniel Jones, New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys – $5,400

The perfect QB tournament play. I have been watching his price act like a stock on the NASDAQ. Knowing their schedule, this is the perfect game to buy before his breakout performance.

Running backs

James Robinson, Jacksonville Jaguars @ Houston Texans – $6,700

Who would have thought that James Robinson would have been the highlight of the rookie RB class. I still do not think he is as expensive as he should be. His receiving work should carry his value this week.

Jonathan Taylor, Indianapolis Colts @ Cleveland Browns – $6,200

Buy low candidates are incredible for tournaments. You would be surprised at how many people use their season long league logic in DFS. Taylor is the new Saquon Barkley, his value I’ll still be there even in bad match ups.

Wide Receivers

Amari Cooper, Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants – $7,400

Cooper is the safest bring back in this Giants Cowboys game. Michael Gallup seems like the sneaky upside play and I wouldn’t be surprised if he pops off with only a few receptions but Cooper will see the volume and high percentage targets.

Tyreek Hill, Kansas City Chiefs vs. Las Vegas Raiders – $6,900

**TOURNAMENT LOCK OF THE WEEK**

Hill has the highest upside on this slate. Always a lock for the upside. You don’t want to miss the inevitable Tyreek Hill explosion week.

Davante Parker, Miami Dolphins @ San Francisco 49ers – $5,900

The ambiguity of this game makes Parker an amazing play. Expect low ownership but the potential of a great shootout.

Darius Slayton, New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys – $4,800

This is the perfect stack with Jones. If Slayton is going to have a game, it would be this game. AND when he scores, he like to double up. Multiple touchdown upside is on the menu.

Tight End

Eric Ebron, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Philadelphia Eagles – $4,000

This is a play based on the opposing defense. The Eagles bleed points to the tight end position. Ebron is slowing obtaining a role in this offense and Big Ben could be seeing him wide open all day on Sunday. tight end one potential.

Defense/Special Teams

Washington Football Team vs. Los Angeles Rams

Get defense out of my face. Sick of having to write about this dart throw position twice a week. Fuck off

TOURNAMENT STACK OF THE WEEK

Daniel Jones + Darius Slayton $10,200

Run it back with Amari Cooper
