8 NFL FanDuel Studs to Target in Week 6

Cam Newton is back, and he has a gorgeous matchup against the New Orleans Saints. Which other expensive players are worth checking out?

As is the case when playing any sport on FanDuel, it’s imperative to hit on the high-priced players in your lineup. They require a big chunk of your salary, and when paying up for them, you shouldn’t have to worry about them letting your team down.

With this being a weekly article, we’ll start off by looking back at the previous week’s studs to see how we did. The goal is to hit on all of the studs, but it’s very important to look at any misses in order to learn from the experience and adapt our strategy moving forward.

David Johnson led the way with 32 FanDuel points to top all players, while Tom Brady was just three spots behind him and second best at his position in his season debut. Greg Olsen also finished with the second-most points at his position, and he set the season-high mark for tight ends with 181 receiving yards.

Aaron Rodgers had his worst game of the season with 17.86 FanDuel points, but he only fell to the 13th-best quarterback of the week. A.J. Green turned in a clunker by managing only seven fantasy points, but he was our only stud to finish outside of the top 13 at his position in Week 5.

Moving on to Week 6, here are eight studs who should prove to be worthy of their high price tag.
