After his strong performance Week 5, Tom Brady leads the way in both lineups against a Cincinnati defense that’s been in the bottom half of points allowed to opposing QBs.

Le’Veon Bell remains in both recommended lineups, and it’s hard to argue with the number of touches he continues to see both as a runner and a receiver. He’s paired with Mark Ingram on FanDuel, who has a better matchup than would appear against a Panthers defense that’s struggled in general this season. On DraftKings, we’re going with Jamaal Charles, who’s expected to see more work coming off the bye.

On FanDuel we’re taking Jeremy Maclin in a plus matchup against the shaky Raiders secondary and pairing him with Jarvis Landry, who should continue to see a solid number of targets, and Cameron Meredith, who showed he could provide great value following Kevin White’s injury. On DraftKings, we’re paying up for Antonio Brown against the Dolphins and pairing him with value plays John Brown against the Jets and Meredith versus the Jaguars.

We continue to exploit the Raiders defense on FanDuel, pairing Maclin with his teammate Travis Kelce at TE. On DraftKings, we’re looking to Gary Barnidge for value against the Titans.
