Thursday Week 6 Selections

This is a new section for us, as we have heard your requests for us to provide our insights and thoughts about players in the Thursday game each week.  We haven’t focused on this game, simply because these players aren’t eligible in the main contest each week but there are some great value tournaments that do include these players so here we go.

For this week, we have the undefeated Atlanta Falcons, traveling to meet the 1 – 4 New Orleans Saints.  Usually, this is a heated rivalry not only between these two teams but cities and friends as well.  Personally, I am on the Falcons in a fairly easy contest, 34 – 20 with the Saints getting some late touchdowns.  That said, it is a rivalry game, on a short week and so this could prove to be a close one, as most of these games come down to a field goal.  That wouldn’t surprise me one bit.  How does this impact fantasy football for this week?  This game should feature at least one guy that will be on THE winning lineup for the full week $1,000,000 challenge.  Here are some guys to consider:

  • Devonta Freeman – He is almost a must play at this point, putting up his 3rd consecutive 30+ point performance on Draftkings again in week 5, look for this to continue again this week.
  • Julio Jones – He has a hamstring issue, so keep an eye on his injury status leading up until game time.
  • Matt Ryan – Has been solid but isn’t getting the touchdown passes to remain in your lineup each week.  That said, his price is slowly coming down and so for the value, this could be a break out game considering the winner of week 5 had the QB against the Saints.
  • Willie Snead – On Draftkings, this is a great guy to take because he will get at least 7 catches and he might get in the endzone.  For the price, he is a huge value pick and we recommend taking him again this week, just as we did last week, where he put up a 23.7.
  • Mark Ingram – Atlanta’s defense is certainly revived this season but they are giving up a ton of yards.  Ingram had 3 TD’s against the Falcons in 2014 and the formula for the Saints to keep this close is to pound the rock.  Look for Ingram to have a solid 20+ fantasy point performance on Draftkings and at least 15 on FanDuel.
