NFL DraftKings Bargains: Week 5

If you’re spending your Saturday night watching sports and setting DK lineups this piece may help you find the missing component for those trying to fill the cheap DK spot. Let’s not overthink these calls but below identify a few reasons why the following players may work in your cash and tournament lineups. Good luck!!

Running Backs

Brandon Bolden (New England Patriots) $4000

His week 4 performance vs. Tampa (six grabs for 51) can’t be ignored. The veteran RB continues his pursuit of becoming the Pats receiving RB with James White on IR. The Pat’s should continue this trend vs the Texans.

Khalil Herbert (Chicago Bears) $4000

A wild card play for those looking for a profitable gamble. Herbert is a dynamic pass-catcher who flashed during the preseason. Williams will be the primary ball carrier but enters the game dinged and Herbert could pair well with Fields skill set.

Samaje Perine (Cincinnati Bengals) $4000

Mixon’s injury history plays into Perine’s favor. Perine is a capable receiver in a game that could be higher scoring than the Vegas total of 50.5.

Wide Receivers

Randall Cobb (Green Bay Packers) $4000

With Marquez Valdes-Scantling on IR, Cobb found the fountain of youth last week with two TDs. As mentioned above this contest could be loose and players in this game could be difference-makers. The playing surface in Cincinnati favors the athletic veteran WR.

Kadarius Toney (New York Giants) $4000

The Giants’ first-round draft pick is starting to pay dividends. Toney, the third WR taken in the 2021 draft, has a diverse skillset and is naturally athletic. The nine targets and 13 yards per reception average from Week 4 could be a repeat in Week 5 vs the Dallas pass defense that ranks bottom three in the league in yards allowed.

Amon-Ra St. Brown (Detroit Lions) $3500

St. Brown is starting to get the snaps and the rookie WR from USC doesn’t lack confidence. St. Brown saw season-highs in snaps, targets, receptions, and yards last week vs. Chicago. The Lions will be playing catch up vs the Vikes affording the rookie potential opportunities in positive game scripts and potential garbage time.

John Ross (New York Giants) $3400

Another first-round talent in the Giants WR core Ross is a great contrarian play based on metrics, injuries, and momentum.

Josh Reynolds (Tennessee Titans) $3300

Reynolds always showed flashes on the Rams and is now healthy at getting playing time with injuries to Titan WR’s. Reynolds saw 9 targets last week.

Tight Ends

Hunter Henry (New England Patriots) $3700

New England’s offense is committed to featuring TE’s under Josh McDaniels game planning. The Texans rank 2nd worst in the league defending TEs. Henry’s fantasy production has increased each week consecutively and he faces a ripe 5 matchup.

Zach Ertz (Philadelphia Eagles) $3400

Ertz saw season highs in targets, receptions, and yards last week vs the Chiefs. He also has a TD reception nullified. The Eagles will be throwing often in Week 5 and Hurts continues to value the veteran TE come game day.

Maxx Williams (Arizona Cardinals) $3400

Williams has been active in the Cardinal offense and would see more looks if Chase Edmonds is ruled out.

Jonnu Smith (New England Patriots) $3300

The Patriots feature the TE position, and Smith has a chance for a big game against the Texas defense.

Cameron Brate (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) $3300

QB Tom Brady and Brate missed on several occasions vs. the Patriots in week 4. Week 5 could be a get-right game for Brate as Brady values the TE in the red zone.
