DraftHustle’s Top DFS Plays of the week for Fanduel and Draftkings
Matthew Stafford – LAR vs Cardinals
Fanduel - $7,300; Draftkings - $6,100
Matthew Stafford has been steady this season, but last week he got his BFF his bestie, Cooper Kupp, back and he fed him often. In a great matchup against the Arizona Cardinals, Stafford should again pass plenty of times. He has scored at least 2x his salary in every game this season, and I expect that trend to continue. Lock Stafford in all cash games safely in week 6.
Raheem Mostert – MIA vs Panthers
Fanduel - $8,500; Draftkings - $6,400
The Miami Dolphins backfield has been supercharged so far this season, and with De’Von Achane going on IR, Raheem Mostert is set to be the lead ball carrier for at least the next 4 weeks. In the Dolphins’ 4 wins this season, Mostert has averaged 23.4 Fanduel PPG and 25.6 Draftkings PPG. Miami is currently favored by 14 points over the Carolina Panthers, and they have the highest Implied Team total (30.75 points) on the slate. Mostert is a cash game lock this week, but I might avoid him in GPPs.
Cooper Kupp – LAR vs Cardinals
Fanduel - $8,700; Draftkings - $9,000
In his first game of the season, Cooper Kupp was back to his normal elite self, catching 8 passes for 118 yards. He instantly returned to being Matthew Stafford’s top target, and that will continue in week 6 with the Ram’s facing a subpar Cardinals secondary. The Rams have the 2nd highest Implied Team Total (27.75 points) on the slate, which means plenty of TD opportunities for Kupp. Cooper Kupp will get his 1st TD of the season this week, with a chance for more.
Evan Engram – JAC vs Colts
Fanduel - $5,500; Draftkings - $4,500
With no Travis Kelce or Mark Andrews on the main slate, TE is very, very ugly. Evan Engram is my top choice this week. Woth Zay Jones out in for the Jags, Engram steps in to be the #3 target for Trevor Lawrence. He has gotten exactly 8 targets in the last 4 games and scored 10.2 and 9.4 points in the previous 2 games Zay Jones missed. The Jaguars have the 3rd highest Implied Team Total (24.5 points) on the slate which correlates well with TE fantasy scoring.
Atlanta Falcons– vs Commanders
Fanduel - $4,000; Draftkings - $3,000
The Atlanta Falcons have been a solid fantasy defense so far this season, and they face a mediocre Washington Commanders offense in week 6. Aside from the garbage time points in week 5 against the Chicago Bears, they have been awful the past 3 weeks. They have averaged at least 2 turnovers a game this season, which bodes well for an underrated Falcons D/ST.
