Playing daily fantasy football for week six of the 2015 NFL season? Don’t fill out your lineup until you’ve read this advice.
Another weekend has passed and the Lions still are looking for that first win. Hopefully my picks last week were able to help you get a few “wins” in the daily fantasy game. We are at the point in the season where we have a few more numbers to fall back on and most everyone has shown what they have for the most part. Five weeks of games and five weeks of data can sometimes also lead to the best value plays.
It feels crazy to say, but I really like the Lions to bounce back strong this weekend and a number of them are on my daily fantasy radar for Sunday. That is another thing that keeps the daily game interesting as an 0-5 team that has been absolutely atrocious can be back on the radar. On the other side of that match up, I also don’t mind the Chicago Bears who have been equally terrible through five weeks. There might be a bit of talk about those Patriots again as well as they return to the site of the beginning of “Deflate-Gate” and might have some extra motivation this weekend.
A quick recap of last week’s picks showed a pretty solid showing from my guys. All three of my QB’s that I touted came through with very solid efforts. The trio of Le’Veon Bell, Dion Lewis and Justin Forsett beat even my expectations as they were staples among almost every tournament winning tournament lineup. Wide receivers were a bit disappointing as were my TE plays, but this is another new week and I hope I can point you in the right direction.
