NFL DFS Primetime Week 6

Fire up the popcorn and get ready for a wild SNF game tonight as the Chiefs and Patriots meet up in the game of the week.   The MNF game should go way overlooked this week so the 49ers and Packers are both low owned leverage type plays to consider this week if you want to run the leverage route on the prime-time slate.



  1. Patrick Mahomes
  2. Tom Brady
  3. Aaron Rodgers
  4. CJ Beathard

You could make a case for all four of the Quarterbacks this week and it certainly feels weird to not list Brady ahead of Mahomes but that’s the reality of the players, the schemes and the matchups this week.  Rodgers is someone I wouldn’t try to get cute with as this could be the right spot for the Packers to finally get the running game going and Beathard does offer some good PT/$ value this week against the Packers.  I am going to end up going Mahomes this week but wouldn’t hate the value play down to Beathard.


Running Backs

  1. Sony Michel
  2. Kareem Hunt
  3. Aaron Jones
  4. James White

All the Sony Michel and Aaron Jones for me this week.   Michel is going to continue to spilt with James White so White would be an interesting flex option and if you play Brady then you want White.


Wide Receivers

  1. Tyreek Hill
  2. Julian Edelman
  3. Devonta Adams
  4. Marquise Goodwin
  5. Chris Conley

Did you see Hill against the Pats last year?  He remains someone who should give them fits.  I love Edelman and would want one of the WR in the MNF game between Adams and Goodwin, but look at Chris Conley as a low owned play to fill up the Chiefs stack this week.


Tight Ends

  1. Rob Gronkowski
  2. Travis Kelce

With both of these studs facing off I think the contrarian play is to actually go BOTH, but I’ll go Kelce over Gronk.



  1. Green Bay
  2. San Francisco — dont be afraid to punt completely with the 49ers defense this week.



Mahomes – Michel – Jones – Edelman – Conley
