Fantasy Draft Week 6 Bargain Buys

We learned last week that when it comes to Fantasy Draft we should trust Andy Dalton. Also, we learned that Peyton Manning is not a Fantasy Draft friendly quarterback either for himself or his players. Owen Daniels flamed out against the Raiders, putting up a big ole zero, whilst Demaryius Thomas continued to frustrate and the run game continued to struggle. Right now, the Broncos are a hot mess on offense, but their superb defense renders anyone involved in that game almost untouchable for daily fantasy.

This week we have the Raiders, Buccaneers, Cowboys and Rams on a bye and, frankly outside of the top options, there are some slim pickings at a couple of positions. At quarterback I was seriously debating recommending Matthew Stafford and Colin Kaepernick as my second cheap option before I just decided I couldn’t do that to you guys and backed off. At tight end it is a real messy situation and I am going all out to try and fit in one of the top end options if I can but I did find one cheaper option to recommend.

Andy Dalton $11,100, CIN @ BUF: I shied away from Any Dalton last week, thinking the let-down game was coming against Seattle.  After a big fourth quarter, he proved me wrong. The Bills have been reasonably good this year against quarterbacks not named Tom Brady, but the key is the pressure they can put on with their pass rush. However, one of the Bengals big strengths is their tough offensive line and I like them to keep Dalton clean and allow him to hit his playmakers for another big day.

Danny Woodhead $8,700, SD @ GB: I just keep picking Woodhead week after week because he is priced in the $9,000 region and each week he puts up solid production. This season he is averaging 15 points a week and has had at least three receptions per game. This week the Chargers will need to keep pace with the Packers with a depleted offensive line group. The easiest way they can do that is short quick passes. That is Woodhead’s forte and I expect him to have a decent game. Plus, he is due to get the end zone after having been shut out now for the last four weeks.

LeGarrette Blount $8,400, NE @ IND: The previous four times the Patriots have faced the Colts they have blown them out of the water, scoring 40+ points all three times. The last three times they have done it with a power back scoring three touchdowns. Two of those times it has been LeGarette Blount. I am not exactly sure if the Patriots will try and pound the Colts again, like they have in the past, or whether they will jump out to a lead and then lean on the tough running Blount, but either way Blount gets his again against his favourite opponents.


Eric Decker $9,600, WAS @ NYJ: The Redskins are averaging 23 points a game against opposing wide receivers, placing them among the worst in the league, while allowing just 11 points to running backs. The run defense is really stout for the ‘skins so I think the Jets will have no choice but to go to the air to win this game. With two stand out receiving threats in BrandonMarshall and Decker, it is fair to say both will see plenty of targets this week.

Marvin Jones $6,900, CIN @ BUF: Jones had a relatively quiet week against Seattle but he found himself in the area of Sherman and Thomas plenty, so Dalton never really went his way as the game went on. This week he gets a Buffalo side who give up 24 points to wide outs and don’t have the depth of defensive back like Seattle. A.J. Green should see the main coverage and Jones should be able to create plenty of havoc if the Bengals can negate the Bills pass rush.

Stefon Diggs $6,300, KC @ MIN: Diggs had a really nice game last time up at Denver in his season debut. Bridgewater came his way ten times, which Diggs turned into 87 yards. Although he fumbled the ball a couple of times, he still looked really promising. He should have earned himself the opportunity to keep playing time, especially with question marks over Mike Wallace, Charles Johnson and Jarius Wright once again this week. This is my real bargain option that should relieve the salary pressure in other areas.

Zach Ertz $6,600, NYG @ PHI: Ertz had his best game of the season last Sunday against the Saints. He put up 60 yards on 5 receptions, getting into double digits for the first time. This week he comes up against the Giants, who average 12 points a week to tight ends. The tight end crop feels really thin this week and Ertz is my last resort if I need to go away from the Rob Gronkowski, Greg Olsen, Travis Kelce, and Tyler Eifert group to save money.
