Week 5 DraftKings DFS Value Picks (Sunday Main Slate)

Week 5 DraftKings DFS Value Picks

It’s Week 5 of NFL Football and you’ve clicked open my weekly DraftKings Value Picks article for Team Rise or Fall. What makes a value pick? Typically, I cover the most lovable longshot, my favorite TE (because who doesn’t love a tight end?), and a sneaky pick of the week. Then, I share why they’re worthwhile or if there’s a comparable replacement. 

My goal isn’t to build your lineup for you, it’s to guide you by using my experience as a sports bettor and the membership tools available at Team Rise or Fall. With that being said… let’s look at Sunday’s main slate favorites for our Week 5 DraftKings DFS Value Picks.

We recently added Individual Sport memberships to our offerings here at Rise or Fall. If you would like to subscribe for an NFL Monthly or NFL Weekly without access to any of the other sports you now have that option. 

All memberships come with Discord Access, however, only the *Monthly All Access* for $39.95 comes with the $20 monthly credit to Fantasy Cruncher. There’s also a *Weekly All Access* for $13.95. Don’t need to have all the access? We even have single sport access plans. 

Week 5 NFL DFS Value Picks

The most lovable longshot… 

Hunter Renfrow

You might be asking yourself why am I calling Hunter Renfrow a longshot. Well… let me tell you! He’s been out with a concussion and Wednesday was his first full-contact practice. In addition, he plays second fiddle to Davante Adams in earning targets from Carr. The good news is, he’s not very pricey this week and it’s supposed to be a high-scoring game. I feel quite comfortable adding Renfrow to my Week 5 DraftKings DFS Value Picks article. He’s priced at just $5.3K, projected for more than 12 fantasy points, and has a low rostership percentage.  

Who Doesn’t Love a Tight End?

Logan Thomas

Wait. Who? I’m choosing Logan Thomas this week as my favorite value TE because of the matchup. The Titans are dead-last in defending against TEs, allowing the highest catch rate and the fourth most receiving yards, as well as yards per reception. If there was ever a big game for Logan Thomas, this one is it. He’s priced at $3.2K and projected to bring more than 6 fantasy points, but I predict it will be much higher than that. Oh, and you don’t need to worry about rostership percentage. 

Living Up To The Hype?

Tyler Allgeier or Caleb Huntley

With Cordarrelle Patterson officially on Injured Reserve… Tyler Allgeier was a very popular fantasy pickup this week, along with Caleb Huntley. The two will be taking on the majority of the backfield workload over the next 4 long weeks. Allgeier has been on the field more than the other backups, so it makes sense that he might see the most action. Huntley can be picked up at $4.3K and is projected to bring just 4.7 points. That doesn’t sound too great. Allgeier is priced at $4.7K and is projected to bring in 7.05 fantasy points. Neither have any worrisome rostership percentages, but I feel like they’re both best used after the rest of your stellar lineup is in order.
