Adam Wagner – Senior Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire
What is happening my DFS Champions? I’m back with the top quarterback picks for NFL week 6. There is still time for you to hit that DraftKings Millionaire Maker. #TeamWagnerWire has had a great start to the DFS-NFL season. We’re gonna keep it going! These are the guys that will get your winning lineup started off.
Arron Rodgers – $7,700 DK/$15,100 FDraft/$9,300 FD
Its going to be a beautiful day in Mr. Rodgers’ neighborhood this Sunday. The Chargers travel on short rest to Green Bay for Sunday’s contest. If you listened to the BIG3 DFS Show this past Wednesday, you heard a mention how much we love Rodgers taking advantage of San Diego having a short week. I also know how Mr. Rodgers responds to throwing an interception during his previous contest. Rodgers has thrown for 1236 yards and 13 touchdowns. Phillip Rivers isn’t gun-shy either. If this turns into a shootout, Mr. Rodgers could easily have himself a 30+ day.
Andy Dalton – $5,700 DK/$11,100 FDraft/$7,600 FD
The Red Rifle has beed slinging the rock and shredding NFL defenses this season. He seems to be silencing his doubters with his recent triumph over the tenacious Seahawks defense and their Legion of Boom, throwing for 331 yards and 2 touchdowns. Dalton is proving that he is just as tough as Swayze’s Dalton character in Road House. The Red Riffle has thrown for 1518 yards and 11 touchdowns on the year. Dalton and the Bengals are on the road this week against Buffalo, a team that allows 274 passing yards per game. Look for Dalton to increase his 25pt/game DraftKing avg.
Carson Palmer – $6,600 DK/$13,500 FDraft/$8,000 FD
Palmer looks fantastic! I haven’t seen him look this good since is tenure with the Bengals. He is surrounded with weapons in Arizona. Fitzgerald has reemerged as one of the top receivers in the NFL. Palmer, Fitzgerald and the Arizona Cardinals travel cross-country to Pittsburg this week. Philip Rivers just carved up the Steeler defense 365 yds. I can see Palmer delivering a similar performance. Palmer has 1316 yards passing with 13 touchdowns this year. TWW likes Palmer but be cautious off a blowout factor.
Matthew Stafford – $5,300 DK/$10,700 FDraft/$6,900 FD
My esteemed colleague Chris Sweet wrote about Stafford in his Sweet Fantasy column this week. I wanted to offer my thoughts as well. This is a fantastic GPP play this week. Stafford was benched last week and will look to come out proving that he the ability to be a top NFL quarterback. That still remains to be seen but he will benefit from his matchup vs the Bears, who allow 28 points per game but only 178 yards through the air. I think Stafford will have a nice day at the office and will not have high ownership. Stafford has thrown for 1205 yards and 6 touchdowns but has 8 interceptions as well.
