Week 6 optimal DraftKings lineup: Lock in Le'Veon Bell
My Week 5 lineup cashed in across the board with a strong 151.38 points. I whiffed on Jerick McKinnon, but this week I’m paying up for the top running back in fantasy, so I’m not worried about the running back position again.
Here’s my optimal DraftKings lineup for Sunday’s main slate, Week 6:
QB: Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints ($7,900)
I had initially thought of paying down at quarterback again this week — probably to Brian Hoyer again — but Pat Thorman’s article noting that the Panthers-Saints game will feature an insane amount of total plays, and that the Panthers give up the fifth-most points per play, has me thinking Brees is the best cash game play this week. Brees is already averaging 44 attempts per game, so an ever faster-tempo game could see him push 50.
