Last week we were on point with the New York Giants receiver Kadarius Toney, who put up 30+ FPTS for over 7X of his low $4,000 price tag on DraftKings. As we approach midway through the regular season, injuries are piling up all over the league, and there will be a ton of value plays for week six. 

Khalil Herbert ($4,600 DK/$5,500 FD) The Bears third string running back will be in line for a full work load after Damien Williams was placed into COVID 19 protocols after testing positive during the week. Rookie signal caller Justin Fields has still been struggling in the pass game, and he’ll look to lean on his running back. Not to mention the Green Bay defense has been generous to running backs this season, allowing over 126 yards per game this year.

Quarterback Value:

Carson Wentz ($6,000 DK/$6,700 FD) had his best game in a Colt’s uniform this season throwing for 402 yards and two touchdowns in a tough loss to the Ravens Monday night. Wentz is at home for the Texans who have gaping holes in their entire defense and should have his way with Houston.

Running Back Value:

Darrel Williams ($4,900 DK/$5,200) The Chiefs lost their top running back Clyde Edwards-Hellaire to IR last week which puts Williams on deck for the lion share of the carries for Kansas City. They’ve suffered two losses in a row and are looking to make mince meat out of the Football Team’s overrated defense, who has averaged 30 points allowed this season. Expect him to get the goal line carries and to catch the ball out of the backfield. 

Wide Receiver Value:

Ahmon-Ra St. Brown ($4,200 DK/$5,200 FD) The Lions rookie has eight targets in his last two games, catching 13 of them for 135 yards. Detroit will be behind and slinging the ball around as usual, and Cincinnati has been kind to receivers, allowing 250 passing yards per game. We just need him to get to at least 10 FPTS, and should get there on Sunday at home. 

Adam Humphries ($3,200 DK/$5,000 FD) Yes we are doubling down on the veteran slot receiver from the Football Team. We suggested him last week and came through with 10 FPTS. Keep an eye on Terry McLaurin’s status, who popped up with a hamstring injury on Friday. Humphries is already in a good spot from all the receiver injuries, but if McLaurin sits out, he will be the top dog in a negative game script for Washington. Deandre Carter ($3,000 DK/$4,800 FD) and Dyami Brown ($3,300 DK/$4,600 FD) if he plays are also in a great spot against the Chiefs. 

Tight End Value:

Ricky Seals-Jones ($3,000 DK/$5,000 FD) That’s right… another Washington player. Kansas City refuses to defend the tight end this season and are ranked 31st in the league against the position. Seals saw nine targets last week, and he should see the same volume this Sunday. We just need nine fantasy points from him, another five catch, 40 yard game seems doable to repeat from last week.
