Back at it for Week Six with only two teams on bye. Not a ton of value spots in our Consensus this week. Without counting, the list looks a bit smaller to me this week. Will the number of players dwindle as folks begin to differentiate themselves from the rest of the league?

As a reminder, the number in the parenthesis is the number of experts that chose that player so you have more context regarding the gaps between players and the tiers.
- Tom Brady (8x) – 11% Cash / 8% GPP – Brady topped 400 yards and threw 3 TD passes in his first game action in 2016 last week.
- Drew Brees (8x) – 11% / 8% – He’s the 2nd highest priced QB on the board but will face a Panthers secondary that isn’t too scary minus Josh Norman. Coming off a bye week.
- Tyrod Taylor (8x) – 11% / 8% – A nice value option. Has thrown three TD passes in the last two weeks.
- Alex Smith (7x) – 6% / 7% – I really like Alex Smith in this spot. The Raiders have allowed the most DFS points to opposing QBs this year.
- Cam Newton (7x) – 6% / 7% – Cam faces off against a suspect Saints defense. Be sure to check if he’s playing prior to playing him.
- Ben Roethlisberger (6x) – 5% / 6% – Big Ben has been on fire. Has topped 300 yards in each of the last two games and has 9 TD passes over that stretch.
- Russell Wilson (4x) – 3% / 4% – I like Wilson this week too. The Falcons have allowed the 2nd most DFS points to QBs this year.
- Marcus Mariota (4x) – 3% / 4% – I’ve been saying for weeks that Mariota was going to go off and last week was the game. He’s in a good value spot this week and should produce 3x points at a minimum.
- Brian Hoyer (4x) – 3% / 4% – He threw for almost 400 yards and two touchdowns last week. Should continue to sling it all over the field as long as he’s playing.
- Blake Bortles (4x) – 3% / 4% – Bortles has been a bit of a letdown this year. Has not sniffed 300 yards since week 2.
- Andy Dalton (4x) – 3% / 4% – Dalton is coming off a dud though he salvaged some points in garbage time last week. They will likely be behind which means plenty of opportunities for him to sling it.
- Le’Veon Bell (17x) – 62% / 32% – What more can you say about this guy. A bit of a down week rushing last Sunday but he caught 9 balls for 88 yards.
- LeSean McCoy (12x) – 44% / 22% – Shady should continue his fantastic season this Sunday. He had 150 yards on the ground last week though he’s only found paydirt on the ground in one game so far.
- Christine Michael (8x) – 24% / 14% – His price has dramatically increased since the beginning of the year. Found another element last game as he caught five balls out of the backfield.
- DeMarco Murray (8x) – 24% / 14% – Another dual threat guy. He gets a juicy matchup with the Browns this week.
- Giovani Bernard (8x) – 24% / 14% – With Jeremy Hill potentially out, Bernard should be the bell cow in the Cincy backfield.
- Lamar Miller (7x) – 19% / 13% – Indy has given up the 3rd most DFS points to running backs. Miller has yet to go off but it could be coming on Sunday.
- Jordan Howard (7x) – 19% / 13% – He’s positioned himself as a stud with back-to-back 100 yard efforts in his first two starts of his career.
- Carlos Hyde (5x) – 5% / 7% – He has found the endzone at least once in each of the last three games.
- Ryan Mathews (5x) – 5% / 7% – I’ve never been a big fan of his; however, the Skins give up a ton of DFS points to RBs.
- Theo Riddick (4x) – 4% / 6% – Riddick caught two TD passes last week but has not found the endzone on the ground this season. He’s somewhat the lone wolf in the backfield in Detroit.
- Jamaal Charles (3x) – 4% / 5% – The plan is to use him more this week. I’ll wait to see how much usage that is before playing him.
- Cameron Meredity (11x) – 37% / 20% – He has emerged as a favorite target for Hoyer. The Bears are throwing the ball a lot, mostly because they are behind, which makes him a nice play.
- Jarvis Landry (10x) – 31% / 16% – Only had three targets last week. I expect him to get back in the double-digit target numbers this week.
- Antonio Brown (8x) – 16% / 12% – Highest prices receiver on the board. You get what you pay for though.
- Jeremy Maclin (7x) – 12% / 11% – I like Smith this week which means I also like Maclin. Raiders have given up the most DFS points to WRs this year.
- Allen Robinson (7x) – 12% / 11% – He has three TD cathes in the last two weeks.
- TY Hilton (6x) – 9% / 10% – Luck throws it a lot and Hilton is the recipient of those passes. He is listed as questionable so be sure to check injury status.
- Kelvin Benjamin (6x) – 9% / 10% – Another guy that is listed as questionable. He will benefit if Cam plays.
- Will Fuller (6x) – 9% / 10% – Another questionable. He’s coming off a dud game where he only caught one ball for 4 yards.
- Michael Thomas (6x) – 9% / 10% – Thomas has scored in each of the last two games.
- Tavon Austin (6x) – 9% / 10% – He’s a nice value play this week. Saw 10 targets in last week’s game.
- Sammie Coates (5x) – 8% / 9% – Coates has come into his own this year. Two TD catches last week and still severely underpriced IMO.
- Doug Baldwin (5x) – 8% / 9% – Had a beast of a game in week 3 but crashed back to earth a bit last week. I like the Seahawks this week so he’s a solid play.
- Marvin Jones, Jr. (3x) – 5% / 7% – Found the endzone last week. He has cooled off a bit from his first three weeks.
- Amari Cooper (3x) – 5% / 7% – Stephen and I were both all over him last week and he proved us correct. Chiefs have allowed the 5th most DFS points to WRs this year.
- Tyler Lockett (3x) – 5% / 7% – He’s only caught 8 balls this season. Comes at a small price so could be a solid value play.
- Brandon LaFell (3x) – 5% / 7% – Another value guy. Broke out in a big way last week as he caught 8 balls for 68 yards and a touchdown.
- Kamar Aiken (3x) – 5% / 7% – Aiken is minimum priced and rightfully so. Has caught six balls this year including a bit ol’ 0 last week.
- Julian Edelman (3x) – 5% / 7% – Had double-digit targets in Brady’s first game back. Should continue to see his value rise as Brady gets back in the groove.
- Jimmy Graham (10x) – 12% / 10% – The Falcons have given up the 2nd most DFS points to TEs this year and Graham seems to be back in a groove a bit.
- Greg Olsen (6x) – 8% / 8% – Olsen was a beast last week with 181 yards. He may want Cam to sit out again as he’s found a connection with Anderson.
- Travis Kelce (6x) – 8% / 8% – Once again, I like the Chiefs passing game this week and Kelce is a big part of that.
- Delanie Walker (6x) – 8% / 8% – Walker scored again last week and opposing TEs have feasted on the Browns this year.
- Zach Ertz (5x) – 6% / 7% – Not near as much love for Ertz this week. He was the overwhelming favorite expert pick at TE last week and only produced three catches for 37 yards.
- Zach Miller (5x) – 6% / 7% – Another questionable tag on him. He has formed a connection with Hoyer though so he’s a solid start if he plays.
- Dennis Pitta (4x) – 5% / 6% – Caught 7 balls last week on 8 targets. Has yet to find the endzone in 2016.
- Rob Gronkowski (4x) – 5% / 6% – He’s happy that Brady is back. Caught five balls for 109 yards last week.
- Coby Fleener (4x) – 5% / 6% – Fleener had one big week against the Falcons…but so did everyone else.
- Gary Barnidge (3x) – 4% / 5% – Listed as questionable. If McCown plays, Barnidge is not a bad start IMO.
- Jesse James (3x) – 4% / 5% – James has only caught 18 balls on the year but three of them have been for touchdowns. He is a nice redzone target for Big Ben.
- Charles Clay (3x) – 4% / 5% – Had a nice week last Sunday with five catches for 73 yards.
- Buffalo Bills (8x) – 14% / 9% – The highest priced team on the board facing off with Kaepernick. I know it’s been several years but Kap has shown the ability to be a top-tier QB in the league.
- Pittsburgh Steelers (5x) – 11% / 8% – Face turnover prone Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins. The Steelers defense has not been very productive in DFS format thus far.
- Tennesse Titans (4x) – 6% / 7% – A good spot to buy in on the Titans this week against the Browns and whoever their starting QB will be,
- Chicago Bears (4x) – 6% / 7% – How do the Bears keep showing up every week? An opportunity to buy low as they are the 3rd lowest priced defense on DK this week.
- New England Patriots (3x) – 4% / 4% – The Cowboys made the Bengals offense look pedestrian a week ago. The Pats have the potential to do the same.
- Houston Texans (3x) – 4% / 4% – Andrew Luck is going to score some points; however, he’s also going to be under pressure. The Colts have not exactly killed opposing defensed in the DFS format this year.
