Eli Manning will be giant for DFS owners in Week 6
We're on to Week 6 of the National Football League regular season, and there are some intriguing matchups. There are also plenty of injury replacements at key positions, which will mean big-time Daily Fantasy values.
(DraftDay.com salaries in parentheses) (all times ET)
Joe Flacco, Baltimore ($12250 at TB): Flacco and the Ravens offense will face the 30th ranked pass defense. The Bucs have given up 292.2 yards per game through the air with 10 touchdown passes in five games. Tampa has also given up 18 pass plays of 20 or more yards. WR Steve Smith Sr. knows the Bucs well, and he and Flacco have developed quite the rapport.
Eli Manning, N.Y. Giants ($13950 at PHI - SNF): Manning will take on the Philadelphia Eagles, looking to keep their offensive momentum rolling. The Eagles rank 29th against the pass, allowing 274.2 yards per game through the air with an NFL-high 13 touchdowns. Manning should post solid DFS totals.
Joique Bell, Detroit ($9250 at MIN): With RB Reggie Bush (ankle) unlikely for Sunday's game, Bell is expected to see an increase in workload. The good news is he comes with a mid-level DFS salary, but he could well exceed expectations against a marginal Minnesota defense.
Bishop Sankey, Tennessee ($7100 vs JAC): RB Shonn Greene is expected to sit, so the lion's share of the carries are likely to fall on the shoulders of the rookie Sankey. He should find plenty of running room against a very giving Jacksonville defense.
Andre Williams, N.Y. Giants ($7950 at PHI): Williams will see a bulk of the carries with RB Rashad Jennings (knee) sidelined. He showed well last week, and he will exceed DFS salary expectations with 20-25 touches and at least 70-80 rushing yards.
Justin Hunter, Tennessee ($8000 vs JAC): Hunter recently leapfrogged Nate Washington on the team's depth chart, and he is starting to show promise like he did in the preseason. He is a lanky receiver with good vertical ability who can be especially dangerous in the red zone.
Mohamed Sanu, Cincinnati ($10300 vs CAR): Sanu should assume the No. 1 receiver role with A.J. Green (toe) expected to sit due to a toe injury. Sanu can be a nice downfield threat, and he comes with a mid-level price.
