The top DFS bargains for Week 5
“If you can’t be with the one you love… Love the one you’re with.” – Stephen Stills
Frankly, that song always creeped me out, but when I’m trying to find that last player for my lineup… You know the one. The player that is way below the line of normally acceptable players. The player that has to score a touchdown to even remotely be DFS relevant. Well, it’s in those moments that I think of that song.
Here are some Week 5 bargain plays that might get you singing on Sunday.
Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles (at Detroit)
FanDuel: $7,500 (16th tied)
DraftKings: $6,400 (11th)
Yahoo: $34 (ninth, tied)
I wrote earlier this week about how only 46.0 percent of Carson Wentz’s passing yards have come in the air and how many analysts are concerned. Meh, I’m not concerned enough to bench him when he’s up against the Detroit Lions, who give up an average of three passing touchdowns per week to opposing quarterbacks. I’ll save my concern for yards after the catch for another week.
