I am going to do something a little different this season for DFS values. Instead of strictly going through player ranks, I am going to dive into the actual players that I am personally playing in lineups at FanDuel and DraftKings this week that are priced outside of the top shelf at each position.
For our pricing thresholds, we are looking at quarterbacks that are below $7,500 at FanDuel and $6,000 or lower on DraftKings. At running back, $7,000, and below at either site. Wide receivers at $7,000 on FanDuel and $6,000 and lower on DraftKings. Lastly, tight ends that are $6,000and lower on FanDuel and $5,000 and lower on DraftKings.
Pick out your own values and add these to your pool if they make sense to you.
I will not be highlighting players like Deshaun Watson and Derrick Henry in Week 6 — options that will be the crux of our actual weekly core — so find out where these players fit in around the top-shelf ticket items that you want to pay up for.
I do not have enough space to talk about every player in my complete player pool this weekend, so make sure you check out the Week 6 Worksheet to see my full thoughts on every player this week. Also, make sure to cross reference those thoughts with weekly rankings in the Sharp Football rankings hub.
