Winning a DFS tournament while competing in a field of 100,000 entrants is an outrageous task. The best way to tilt the odds in your favor is to play into the chaos of the NFL week. Profit disproportionately when things don’t go as planned.
Here are three ways to build that kind of leverage into your lineups for Week 6.
Matt Ryan is in a great spot to rebound
The Atlanta Falcons‘ offense has gone 31 drives without Ryan throwing a touchdown pass. Todd Gurley has scored four times in that stretch. Gurley is second in the NFL in rushing touchdowns and has outperformed his scoring expectation by 1.1 touchdowns. Ryan, on the other hand, has seven scores on the year despite being projected for nine scores to this point. Ryan isn’t playing horribly, as his 70.3 offensive grade ranks 21st among quarterbacks (min. 100 dropbacks). Plus, Atlanta ranks 11th in passing rate and second in time per play. They get to face Minnesota's 32nd-ranked defense by overall grade this week.
