NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup – Week 6
October 12, 2018


Atlanta vs. Tampa Bay:  These NFC South matchups are typically higher-scoring with plenty of passing scores.  Jameis Winston returns to the starting lineup and should easily carve up a depleted Atlanta defense.  300 yards and 2 scores seems like a good benchmark for him this week.  On the other side, Matt Ryan faces a Tampa defense giving up the most fantasy points to QBs.  300/3 seems possible, with potential for a lot more.  He’s averaging 355 passing yards at home, and that was against better defenses than what Tampa’s trotting out there.  As a direct result, there are a host of pass-catchers that will be good to great starts.  Great Starts:  Ryan, Winston, Mike Evans, Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, DeSean Jackson  Good Starts:  Mohamed Sanu, Chris Godwin, Cameron Brate

Green Bay (vs. SFO):  Aaron Rodgers seems to be past the knee issue, and is facing a Niner defense that consistently gives up 3 passing TDs every week.  Rodgers’ yardage total may not be insanely high (thinking between 260-300 yards), but he’ll get you the scores.  The trick here will be to figure out which pass-catchers will be healthy enough to be productive.  Davante Adams seems like a sure thing, but after that, roll the dice.  We doubt the Packers push Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison back from their maladies this week, with the reeling Niners on the schedule.  That leaves Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown (man, talk about a couple of great names) to split the rest.  Mix in some Jimmy Graham.  Great Starts:  Rodgers, Adams  Good Starts:  Valdes-Scantling and Graham  Dice Roll:  St. Brown



Los Angeles Rams (@DEN):  With the Rams possibly without their top two wideouts, they may lean even more on Todd Gurley.  The Broncos have had trouble stopping the run.  Will they totally sell out on the pass, stacking the box against Gurley?  It’s possible, but the Rams seem to have an offense that will roll with whoever they have out there and that could prove foolish.  The thought here is Gurley should easily top 100 combined yards and catch at least 3-4 balls.  He should score once; if he gets in more than that it could be a huge afternoon for him.  Great Start:  Gurley

Kansas City at New England:  We all know what these offenses can do passing the ball, and we’re not saying that anything’s going to change in that regard.  But we’re thinking it could be the run game that really impresses.  The Pats have a pair of RBs that are certainly worth starting.  Sony Michel has been on a tear and could once again top 100 rushing yards against a Chief defense yielding the second-most fantasy points to RBs.  James White may only get you 15 rushing yards, but he could catch 6+ balls, which is huge in PPR formats.  On the other side, Kareem Hunt has been on a scoring streak and his usage is consistent.  He should top 100 combined yards.  Should be a great game, and the RBs could be a nice surprise.  Great Starts:  Hunt, Michel and White (PPR only, good start in standard leagues)
