My NFL Week 6 DraftKings Pick'em Team is all about Jets vs New England and Houston vs Cleveland. I'm particularly bullish on Houston Texans' players posting massive fantasy stats. Pats' tight-end Rob Gronkowski is back this week. He's a must add for me as well. Check out my NFL Week 6 DraftKings Pick'em DFS squad.
T1 DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Houston vs Cleveland – The other 2 choices at Tier 1 are the Saints' Michael Thomas and the Falcons' Julio Jones. Julio is listed as questionable. I can't put him on the DFS Pick'em squad. Thomas could have a great game, but QB Drew Brees likes to involve everybody in the Saints' offense.
Hopkins has seen at least 12 targets in every game this season. QB DeShaun Watson should go to the DeAndre well early and often versus Cleveland on Sunday.
T2 Devonta Freeman, RB, Atlanta vs Miami – Stefon Diggs is one of the other possibilities. Diggs has been declared out for this Sunday's game versus the Green Bay Packers. Patriots' WR Brandin Cooks, the other possibility, could have a huge day. Or, the Jets could stop Cooks while Tom Brady throws to Rob Gronkowski, Chris Hogan, and Danny Amendola.
I'll go with Devonta Freeman, who should get plenty of carries on Sunday. Freeman might also catch a few passes out of the backfield.
T3 DeShaun Watson, QB, Houston vs Cleveland – Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Kirk Cousins, Matthew Stafford, and Matt Ryan are all available at Tier 3. My choice, DeShaun Watson, has been spectacular in his rookie season. His TD to INT ratio is 12 to 4.
T4 Rob Gronkowski, TE, New England at New York Jets – The other 5 choices in Tier 4 are wide receivers. I don't see how Terrific Tom doesn't go to Gronk often versus the Jets now that Gronk is healthy.
T5 Terrelle Pryor Sr., WR, Washington vs San Francisco – When you get to Tier 5 through Tier 8, you've got to make the most logical decisions possible. Washington battles San Francisco after their bye week. Hopefully, Terrelle Pryor Sr. and Kirk Cousins worked on their timing. If so, Pryor could have a nice game.
T6 Javorius Allen, RB, Baltimore vs Chicago – Chicago made Minnesota RB Jerrick McKinnon look like an RB1. They couldn't stop the Vikings' scatback. Allen is the best pass-catching RB on Baltimore's roster. He also doesn't fumble the ball as much as Alex Collins. I like him more than anyone else at Tier 6.
T7 Alvin Kamara, RB, New Orleans vs Detroit – Now that New Orleans has traded Adrian Peterson, more targets and more hand-offs should go to both Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. It's difficult to know how well Kamara plays on Sunday. I'm comfortable taking a shot.
T8 Jermaine Kearse, WR, New York Jets vs New England – I don't have much faith in New England's pass defense. Although the Patriots beat Tampa Bay 19 to 14 in Week 5, Tampa QB Jameis Winston still threw for over 300 yards. Kearse is easily the Jets' best wide receiver. The Jets should be behind in this game. Don't be surprised if Kearse sees 10 to 12 targets. Hopefully, he'll catch some of those.
Good luck with your DraftKings DFS Fantasy Teams in NFL Week 6!
