3 Daily Fantasy Football Players to Avoid in Week 6
Welcome to Week 6, folks. Let's get right to it.
As always, we'll be using our Net Expected Points (NEP) metric to help identify a quarterback, running back and wide receiver who you should consider avoiding in Week 6.
Last week, the three players who landed on this list were Tyrod Taylor, Matt Jones, and DeAndre Hopkins. Taylor passed for 124 yards and 2 touchdowns on his way to 15.8 FanDuel points. Jones was an absolute trainwreck with 4.6 FanDuel points while Hopkins caught 5 balls for 56 yards and a touchdown. "Nuk" accumulated 14.1 FanDuel points, but at $8,200, he didn't come close to exceeding value.
In DFS, the best players aren't always the best plays for a particular week. Salaries, matchups and projected ownership all need to be considered when building lineups. With that said, here are three players you should keep on the bench for FanDuel's main slate in Week 5 of the NFL season.
