Bottom of the Barrel Week 6 RB NFL DFS Breakdown

Bottom of the Barrel Week 7 TE NFL DFS Breakdown

As Halloween draws near so are the spooky, scary, and terrifying daily fantasy sports plays! With Week 6 on the horizon, we must take stock on which players are worth and damn and which guys aren’t getting it done! However, that last statement is better suited for seasonal formats. Yet, both formats go hand in hand.

Main slate in Week 6 is an odd eleven game slate. I have a different plan when it comes to attacking this slate. The trust we have built together has been outstanding! So, if you trust me let’s dig into this thing!

I’ll get into all the details after a quick note about our new membership options! 😺

Running Backs

Kenneth Walker III SEA vs. ARZ(22nd)(FD-$6,500)(DK-$5,400)(Y!-$18)

Slam dunk across the board. Only issue is we are not alone on Ken. Awful news about Rashaad Penny but this earth still spins and there is still football to be played. I think it’s safe to pencil Walker III in for 15+ carries but it does come with some risk. The Cards have been respectable against opposing backs, but the volume is enough to let it ride.

Eno Benjamin ARZ @ SEA(29th)(FD-$6,300)(DK-$4,600)(Y!-$15)

Another hot shot player this week, Eno Benjamin, looks to have the backfield to himself if James Connor is unable to play. The match-up is sweet as pie so let’s daydream and be overly ambitious with Eno’s projections. Fifteen carries for 65-70 yards in addition to three or four receptions for another 30 yards. So, by my estimation, a hundred all-purpose yards and a touchdown and we’re in the money!

Kareem Hunt CLE vs. NE(6th)(FD-$6,000)(DK-$5,700)(Y!-$16)

It’s Chubb’s world and we’re just living in it. Yet, Kareem Hunt doesn’t care and continues to get a piece of the running back pie on a week-to-week basis. I cannot speak to the Pats gameplan in week 6 but I am almost certain the Browns will pound the ball early and often. If my math holds up, between Chubb and Hunt, they have totaled 155 attempts. If we divide that by the 5 games played so far, we get 31. So, the Browns, on average, call 31 rushing attempts a game. Take that number, add ten more, and we have a monster day for both Cleveland running backs.

Devin Singletary BUF @ KC(27th)(FD-$5,700)(DK-$5,900)(Y!-$18)

When the Bills get up and ahead Devin’s work takes a hit. Rightfully so given the firepower of this Buffalo offense. Yet, when the Bills are in a competitive contest Devin’s offensive snap rate goes way up! Buffalo heads to Kansas City on Sunday afternoon so I will ask you, blow out or spine chilling off the wall competitive game?

Deon Jackson IND vs. JAX(25th)(FD-$5,600)(DK-$5,200)(Y!-$13)

Just got word Jonathan Taylor will not play in Week 6. Same thing with Hyheim Hines so Neon Deon get’s the backfield all to himself on Sunday. After what Jackson did last week, 13 carries, 62 yards, 4 receptions, and 29 yards it’s an easier pill to swallow. Not so much a wing and a prayer but a must play!

Rachaad White TB @ PIT(26th)(FD-$5,200)(DK-$5,200)(Y!-$12)

I am going to keep writing about Rachaad until he does something. I will keep pounding this White drum until the Bucs make it right with their plans for him. It is starting to take shape though! The last two weeks White has received twenty carries and nine targets. This backfield belongs to Leonard Fournette but let’s a cut a slice off for White in Week 6.
