NFL Cash Game Lineup Advice: Week 6 (Main Slate)

We have a reduced main slate of NFL DFS action in Week 6 with just 10 games to slice and dice due to the start of bye weeks and four island games. The narrow slate would typically allow us to zero in on the top plays a little bit easier with fewer options to choose from, but this week has a crazy amount of little “Q” tags and uncertainty as we head into Friday.

So, while I’ll do my best to navigate the injury invested waters of Week 6, be sure to keep an eye on injury reports and Sunday’s inactives as it could be a week that we need to make some last-minute adjustments to our DFS Cash game lineups.

The players below are ones I’m looking at for cash game considerations for Week 6 main slates:



Lamar Jackson (BAL): $7,400 vs. LAC
The high floor and limitless upside that Jackson brings every week always puts him in contention for DFS lineups of any type. He is coming off a season-high 45 DraftKings points and hasn’t scored below 20 DraftKings points in any game this year.

Jackson could be involved in a shootout in Week 6 with the Ravens playing at home against the Chargers in one of the highest Vegas totals on the main slate. While the Chargers have allowed more production on the ground than through the air this season, that could work out nicely for the fleet-footed Jackson, who already has double-digit carries in three of five games this season.
