Our Week 6 DraftKings DFS cash guide helps you build an optimal lineup by giving you the best player picks and sleepers based on matchup and expected workload.

Below are some of the players I’m considering for my cash lineups in Week 6. Some things may change between now and Sunday (injury news later in the week is one of the most important things to pay attention to for DFS), but this should give you a good starting point when building cash lineups for Week 6.

The “Top Value” charts above show the top values based on projections and salary. However, not all of the players included in the charts should be considered cash game options. The charts are meant to show you — at a glance — which players have the most favorable salary-to-projection ratios, but when selecting players for your cash lineup, other factors need to be considered.


DraftKings – Top QB Values – Week 6

Player Team Matchup $ Projection Value
Derek Carr OAK SEA $5,100 19.5 3.82
Jameis Winston TB @ATL $5,800 21.0 3.62
Ryan Tannehill MIA CHI $4,900 17.5 3.57
Andy Dalton CIN PIT $6,300 22.3 3.54
Jared Goff LAR @DEN $6,000 20.9 3.48
Aaron Rodgers GB SF $6,600 22.9 3.47
Andrew Luck IND @NYJ $6,200 21.5 3.47
Alex Smith WAS CAR $5,400 18.7 3.46
Cam Newton CAR @WAS $6,100 20.8 3.41
Mitchell Trubisky CHI @MIA $5,300 17.6 3.32

Pricey: Matt Ryan ($6,800) gets the dream matchup at home against the Buccaneers, who have given up the most touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks so far this year (13) despite already taking their bye week.

Mid-tier price: Jared Goff ($6,000) draws a Broncos defense that has given up at least 275 passing yards in four of five games and which ranks bottom-12 in total fantasy points given up to opposing quarterbacks. Goff, currently the QB5 in fantasy on the year, is extremely affordable and is the eighth-most-expensive option on the main slate. He’s a top-five value at QB this week.
