With the injuries that the New York Giants have carried over the past few weeks, first round selection Kadarius Toney has made the most of his opportunity, and scored two touchdowns to become one of the potential NFL DFS picks for Week 6. Kahlil Herbert and Damien Williams combined for 139 rushing yards for the Bears with David Montgomery on the shelf last week. With Williams now out with COVID-19, should Herbert be part of your NFL DFS stacks?
TAMPA, FLORIDA – OCTOBER 04: Justin Herbert #10 of the Los Angeles Chargers looks to pass during the third quarter of a game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium on October 04, 2020 in Tampa, Florida.
Who are the players who will step in for injured starters and be difference-makers in your Week 6 NFL DFS lineups?

Now, McClure has turned his attention to the Week 6 NFL DFS slate and locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.
Top NFL DFS picks for Week 6
One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Week 6 is Washington tight end Ricky Seals-Jones ($3,000 on DraftKings and $5,000 on FanDuel). Most NFL teams have targeted the tight end position more than the Washington Football Team, but quarterback Taylor Heinicke seems to be looking for Seals-Jones, who has 12 targets over the last two games.
Seals-Jones has taken over for injured starter Logan Thomas and played 99 percent of Washington’s offensive snaps in Week 5, reeling in all five of his catchable targets against New Orleans. In Week 6, Washington faces Kansas City, which has been the fifth-worst Fantasy defense against tight ends this season. Washington’s receiving corps have been banged up lately, and Seals-Jones accounted for a higher target share than Washington’s entire running back room in Week 5.
Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Lions running back D’Andre Swift ($6,300 DraftKings, $7,100 FanDuel), who is coming off a game with 51 rushing yards, 53 receiving yards and a touchdown.
Swift is splitting carries with Jamaal Williams but is still averaging nearly 40 yards per game on the ground to go along with two scores. Swift makes his biggest impact in the passing game, as he leads all running backs in receptions (29) while ranking second in receiving yards (252). That makes him one of the top NFL DFS picks for Week 6 as the Lions take on a Bengals squad that was just victimized by opposing running backs in Week 5. Cincinnati allowed Aaron Jones to rush for over 100 yards while also allowing AJ Dillon to pile up 79 scrimmage yards and a receiving touchdown.
