Survey Says? - Week 6 FantasyFeud Plays
Looking to broaden your DFS horizon? If so, you might want to give FantasyFeud a try. They offer multiple formats and a wide range of sports, but if you’re reading this, I’m willing to bet you’re most interested in football.
FantasyFeud has one of the more challenging salary cap games in the industry. If you used to play on DraftStreet, you’ll notice some similarities. You start a 10-man roster with a $100,000 cap in half-point PPR scoring. It’s a two-quarterback lineup and no kickers. Each week, I’m going to give you my optimized lineup.

Here’s this week’s optimized cash game lineup:
QB: Eli Manning
Eli is one of my priority starts this week in cash game contests. He’s been putting up very strong numbers over the last month, and banged up Eagles defense that has been soft against the pass so far this season.
QB: Matt Ryan
In two home games this season, Ryan has thrown for 734 yards and six scores, and let’s not forget that he came out of the second game early due to the blow out. This week he’s a high floor/high ceiling play at home against the Bears, and his price tag is actually lower than opponent Jay Cutler’s ($150,100).
RB: Matt Forte
I’m trying to get as much action in this game as I can this week, as Vegas likes this contest to be the week’s highest-scoring. Forte is coming off a big performance, and should have no problem keeping things going against a Falcons team that surrenders the most fantasy point per game to running backs this season.
RB: Joique Bell
With Reggie Bush not expected to play this weekend, Bell is in a prime spot to see significant touches against the Vikings. This is a plus matchup, making Bell an almost must-start at his discounted price tag.
WR: Julio Jones
I really like stacking on FantasyFeud, and there aren’t many stacks I like more than Ryan/Jones this week. Jones has three 100-yard games this season, and should have no problem putting fantasy points on the board in Week 6.
WR: Rueben Randle
See above regarding stacks. We’re going to do another one here with Randle, who has seen 10 targets in each of his last three games. The Eagles also have a recent history of getting crushed by outside receivers against the Giants. Last season, Hakeem Nicks caught nine balls for 142 yards in Week 5 against Philly.
TE: Luke Willson
You have to save money somewhere, so I’m cutting costs with the rock-bottom priced Willson. Dallas has given up a receiving touchdown to a tight end in all but one game this season, so we’re rolling the dice on Willson here.
We really need look no further than the Titans’ opponent this week. Start defenses against Jacksonville and you score fantasy points. It’s as easy as that.
FLEX: Giovani Bernard
The last time A.J. Green sat out, Bernard went off against the Falcons. Get ready for Round 2 and get Bernard in your lineups this week.
FLEX: Bishop Sankey
Admittedly, I don’t love this play. However, with Shonn Greene out, Sankey should get the lion’s share of the carries against a Jags team that has had trouble stopping the run so far this season.
