2018 Week 6 DraftKings Plays — Cash Game

Analysis By Position: RB | WR | QB | TE | DST  | GPP Ownership Projections

***The cash-game plays are safer, less volatile players (higher floors). Coming in first place in a cash game is great, but merely placing in the money is the goal because everyone wins the same amount in this type of contest.***

Jameis Winston $5,800

Running Back

James Conner $7,700
Joe Mixon $7,500

2018 Week 6 DraftKings Picks — Tournament Plays (GPPs)

***Tournament plays are more volatile players (boom or bust) who can help differentiate your lineup in giant GPPs. Mixing a few of these names, along with the safer cash-game options, is a great way to construct a GPP roster***

Quarterback

DeShaun Watson $6,400
Cam Newton $6,100
Russell Wilson $5,700

Running Back

Todd Gurley $10,000
Ezekiel Elliott $7,000
