DraftKings DFS Week 6 Lineup

QB: Tom Brady ($6,300) at Steelers

Brady has attempted 52 passes in each of the last two games, which is exactly the type of volume we like to see from our quarterback. The Steelers do not present a stiff opponent on paper, but if another pass-happy Sunday is Tampa’s ticket to victory, look for Brady to have another busy day under center.

RB: Breece Hall ($5,800) at Packers

Don’t look now, but Hall is officially the lead runner in the Jets’ backfield. He was only a matter of feet — perhaps inches — from multiple touchdowns and a breakout performance that would’ve been heard from Ames, Iowa. The Packers aren’t an easy opponent, but Hall’s ability as a runner and receiver makes him a must-have at his price tag.

RB: Kenneth Walker III ($5,400) vs. Cardinals

Walker is the next man up after starter Rashaad Penny was lost to a broken tibia. Don’t look for lineup diversification with this play, but Walker stands to receive increased workloads from here on out. The Seahawks have only attempted more than 30 passes once this season, so it’s fair to expect a balanced approach with a healthy dose of work for Walker.

WR: Deebo Samuel ($7,600) at Falcons

Samuel scored a touchdown last week but was relatively quiet overall (four touches, 32 yards). Credit to the Panthers, who have a good defense that is routinely undermined by a poor offense. The Falcons shouldn’t be expected to hold Samuel in check to a similar degree.

WR: Mike Evans ($7,000) at Steelers

We’re pairing Brady with his top target in a game that the Buccaneers are expected to win with relative ease. Evans is coming off of a four-catch, 81-yard performance on eight targets. Conventional wisdom suggests there will be ample opportunity for the Bucs to hang points on the scoreboard Sunday, and it’s difficult to imagine Evans not getting in on the fun.

WR: George Pickens ($4,600) vs. Buccaneers

Pickens has come on the last couple of weeks, and it’s not unreasonable to anticipate him emerging as the most dynamic receiver on the roster over the balance of the season. Fellow rookie Kenny Pickett attempted 52 passes on Sunday, and while it may be wise to bet the under on another 52 tosses, running lanes are traditionally tough to come by against the Bucs.

TE: David Njoku ($4,000) vs. Patriots

Njoku is settled in as one of the Browns’ top targets. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick’s M.O. is to take away the opposing team’s best player, which in this case is either Nick Chubb or Amari Cooper (on paper at least). If the Pats are willing to let Njoku beat them, it could lead to another quality outing for the dynamic tight end.

FLEX: Travis Etienne ($5,000) at Colts

Etienne is essentially playing his rookie season after he missed 2021 with a foot injury. The Jaguars have ramped him up slowly, perhaps by design, but he’s slowly taking ownership of a larger piece of the backfield pie. Etienne played his most snaps and produced his best game as a pro in Week 5, and the arrow should continue trending upward as the season progresses.

DEF: Los Angeles Rams ($4,100) vs. Panthers

The Rams will want to flush the bad taste from last week’s drubbing at the hands of the Cowboys. They await a Panthers team that just fired its head coach and lost its starting quarterback. This isn’t just an opportunity for Rams players to pad their stats either. They’re third in the division and need to generate some momentum to take into the second half.
