FanDuel NFL GPP Lineup Advice: Week 6 (2019)
There are three games on Sunday’s 10-game main slate on FanDuel with a Vegas total sitting over 50 points. You will definitely want to mix in some stacks of the quarterback and his receivers in the Texans/Chiefs and Falcons/Cardinals tilts. However, I do have some concerns about the ability for the 49ers and Rams to put up that many points. While that is a glimpse at the chalky stacking options, I will instead be digging a little bit deeper in this FanDuel GPP lineup advice column to bring out a few lower owned stacking combinations and one-off GPP fliers to consider for Week 6.
So, with that let’s stack’em up for Week 6.
QB Kirk Cousins (MIN): $7,000 / WR Stefon Diggs (MIN): $5,800
It seems like I am recommending the Vikings passing game in this space every single week, but they continue to be low-owned, inexpensive, and playing in favorable matchups. This week the Vikings welcome the Eagles suspect pass defense to Minnesota. The Eagles have allowed 289 passing yards (26th) and 1.8 touchdown passes (21st) per game this season. The high numbers are largely due to the fact that teams struggle mightily to run the ball on their defense which forces them to the air. The Vikings have been one of the most run-heavy teams in the league this year but have a very capable passing game with a narrow target tree. Last week it was Adam Thielen‘s turn for a big day, this week I’ll look to pivot to the cheaper and probably lower owned option with Stefon Diggs. Bring it back on the other side with Zach Ertz, or maybe even Nelson Agholor if you want to get more contrarian.
Bring it back with: Zach Ertz (PHI): $6,600
QB Gardner Minshew (JAC): $6,900 / WR D.J. Chark (JAC): $6,500
Minshew mania is sweeping the nation and it is not just because of his mustache and clothing choices. Minshew has tossed a pair of touchdowns in four out of five games this season and has the ability to get some added points with his legs when needed. He has established a strong connection with D.J. Chark who has scored in four of five games. This week Minshew and the Jaguars will face a Saints pass defense that ranks 20th Defense-adjusted Value Over Average (DVOA) according to FootballOutsiders and has allowed 8.24 yards per attempts which ranks 26th in the league. Also, consider Dede Westbrook if you want to double-stack Jaguars pass-catchers or pivot off the more popular Chark. Bring it back with Saints do-it-all running back Alvin Kamara who will get touches regardless of if the Saints lead or trail.
Bring it back with: Alvin Kamara (NO): $7,900
RB Chris Carson (SEA): $7,200 / DEF Seahawks: $4,100
Looking at some projected ownership percentages, I’m surprised that Carson is not expected to be one of the highest owned options on this slate. He is coming off back-to-back 100-yard efforts and faces a Browns defense that was just run all over by the 49ers on Monday night. Maybe is current injury status is dragging his ownership number down, but assuming that he is a full go for Sunday, he is reasonably priced and gets a favorable matchup against a Browns run defense that has allowed 5.01 YPC (28th). Meanwhile, Baker Mayfield has been a sack and turnover machine for opposing defense this year and the Seahawks have had 10 days to rest and prepare after playing on Thursday last week.
Odell Beckham (WR – CLE): $7,600
Speaking of the Browns, Beckham has suffered along with the Browns passing game the last couple of weeks where he has only managed a total of four receptions for 47 yards. This has allowed his salary to dip down to $7,600 as he heads into a beatable matchup against the Seahawks secondary. Look for Mayfield to try to feed the ball the Beckham this week after he certainly has been in his ear to get him the rock.
- Jimmy Garoppolo (QB – SF): $7,200
- Damien Williams (RB – KC): $6,600
- Carlos Hyde (RB – HOU): $6,000
- Adrian Peterson (RB – WAS): $5,300
- Terry McLaurin (WR – WAS): $6,400
- Dede Westbrook (WR – JAC): $5,400
- Nelson Agholor (WR – PHI): $5,100
- Noah Fant (TE – DEN): $4,500
