These are some of the players Jason will be locking in his lineups on DraftKings and FanDuel for this weekend’s slate.

Quarterbacks

Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs

$8,300 DRAFTKINGS $9,000 FANDUEL

Who would have thought that we would be heading into Week 6 with the Chiefs in last place in the division sitting at 2-3? If there ever was an early-season, must-win game, this is it for the Chiefs. Mahomes hasn’t been the issue as he has averaged 28.8 DraftKings points per game through five weeks. The six interceptions are a bit worrisome, but the production is still there week in, week out. The matchup is great versus Washington, somehow they went from an elite defense in 2020 to one of the worst to start the season in 2021. They are currently allowing 293 passing yards per game, and Washington ranks 20th against opposing quarterbacks. Vegas has this over set to 55.5 with the Chiefs team total set at 31. This is a pass-first offense that will be putting up points with Mahomes leading the crew. Stack up this game from both sides as we not only have one of the best offenses, but two of the worst defenses facing off in Week 6.

Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers

$7,300 DRAFTKINGS $8,000 FANDUEL

Is Herbert the best quarterback in the league right now? Do the Chargers have the best offensive weapons as a whole? These are the questions I’m starting to ask myself when watching Herbert and the Chargers. Herbert is averaging 27.2 DraftKings points per game, and there is simply nothing he can’t do on the field. He gets a juicy matchup versus the Baltimore Ravens, who are currently allowing 296.4 passing yards per game and 389.6 total yards. The Ravens won’t be able to stop Herbert and his elite counterparts. The combination of his skill set with those of Austin Ekeler, Mike Williams, Keenan Allen, and Jared Cook by his side makes me think we can pencil in another 300-yard performance in Week 6.

Running Backs

Jonathan Taylor, Indianapolis Colts

$6,600 DRAFTKINGS $7,500 FANDUEL

Game script is going to be heavily weighted in Taylor’s favor in Week 6. The Colts are favored by 10 (I do like the Houston Texans to cover), which should lead to a heavy dose of Taylor in this one. Taylor has only broken 100 yards once this season with only two rushing touchdowns, but this should be a game to pad the stats. The Texans are allowing 134.8 rushing yards and 391.8 total yards per game, so the Colts should be able to put up points and present Taylor with some red-zone opportunities. Taylor may end up popular, but I like the price and floor he provides in Week 6.

Antonio Gibson, Washington Football Team

$6,500 DRAFTKINGS $6,700 FANDUEL

The game between Kansas City and Washington has a game stack written all over it. We have two bad defenses lining up in a game that currently has a total of 55 points. The price is right on Gibson, and we want shares of the Washington offense in Week 6. Most of my lineup builds will have one to two players from both teams and Gibson lines up as one of the best landing spots. The Chiefs currently rank 29th against opposing running backs and are allowing 141 rushing yards per game. The hope is for Gibson to not only be involved in the run game but also the passing game. With the Chiefs most likely carrying the lead in the second half, if Gibson is getting targets we could see a ceiling game from him where he goes for 25-plus points. As you will read below, I also like Terry McLaurin. I will go with one or the other in a lot of my builds and will rarely lock both.

Wide receivers

Tyreek Hill, Kansas City Chiefs

$8,500 DRAFTKINGS $8,700 FANDUEL

The role of Tyreek has been somewhat boom or bust due to his price tag. Where if you had him in Week 1 or 4 you almost guaranteed to cash and the other weeks you had an uphill climb. When the targets are there, Hill, who has a minor quad injury, knows what to do with them. He has had a 40- and 50-point game already this year through five games, and the hope is another monster coming in Week 6. The Washington Football Team ranks 31st against opposing wide receivers and 27th in total yards allowed. We are talking about one of the worst defenses in the league matching up versus one of the best offenses. This has the recipe for the Chiefs and Hill to go off in Week 6, and I don’t want to miss out. I think every team you make should have shares of this game in some capacity. This is a must-win spot, and I will be finding ways to get my Hill exposure in Week 6.

Terry McLaurin, Washington Football Team

$7,100 DRAFTKINGS $7,400 FANDUEL

McLaurin is almost the identical play as Hill. He has had two monster and three sluggish games, but this one lines up to be a big one. Kansas City is almost as bad as the Washington defense. They rank 24th against wide receivers, allowing 296 passing yards and 437 total yards per game. If QB Taylor Heinicke can lead this offense while not turning over the ball, Washington should stay in this game long enough for most of the plays in this game to pay off. Vegas has the Chiefs winning by a touchdown in this one, which should force Washington to air it out for four quarters playing catch up. If you want to fade McLaurin, I also like Keenan Allen and DJ Moore in the same price range.

Tight ends

Mark Andrews, Baltimore Ravens

$5,200 DRAFTKINGS $6,300 FANDUEL

We haven’t spoken much about the Ravens and Chargers matchup, but I can easily see this game outperforming the Chiefs game. These two offenses are elite and will trade punches for four quarters. Andrews is coming off a monster Week 5 in a comeback win versus the Indianapolis Colts. Andrews had 11 receptions on 13 targets combining for 147 yards receiving and two touchdowns. While I don’t expect that output this week, I do like the price tag and floor he provides in what should be another high-scoring contest against the Chargers at home. We have a total of 51.5 with Baltimore favored by three, so this game should be high scoring and close through four quarters. If Andrews can match what David Njoku just did to this Charger defense, I’m sure we will be happy with his seven-reception, 149-yard, one-touchdown performance.

Ricky Seals-Jones, Washington Football Team

$3,000 DRAFTKINGS $5,000 FANDUEL

With Logan Thomas out and a juicy matchup versus the Chiefs, Seals-Jones should pay off his minimum-priced salary on both DraftKings and FanDuel. Ricky played 82 out of the 83 snaps and that kind of time on the field will lead to production. Please look above on how bad the Chiefs defense has been. We are talking about one of the worst in the league right now in a game that currently has a total of 55 points. The Chiefs should take an early lead here, which will have Washington playing from behind and forcing them to air it out to keep pace. RSJ is a tournament-only play, which could pay off nicely in Week 6.

Good luck in Week 6, and if you ever have any questions, please hit me up on Twitter!
