STLCards' NFL Field Stretcher: Week 6

Justin Van Zuiden, also known as STLCardinals84, has proven time and time again that he’s one of the best tournament players in the DFS industry. Join him each week as he gives you a glimpse into the mind of a GPP maestro.

Week 6

Welcome back to the NFL Field Stretcher for Week #6! This is shaping up to be one of the trickier weeks we have had so far, and it’s going to take a few spiders to help us untangle this web of games. There is a lot of interesting stuff to discuss, and this is also the time of year where injuries start to play a bigger role. We will need to be mindful of updates as we get closer to Sunday lineup lock.

Also, I want to provide one observation from the Thursday game. Wow, Saquon Barkley is good. Wow, the rest of the Giants’ team is abysmal. All right, we can carry on now.

Grab your favorite beverage, and let’s get down to business!

    Those designations are just based on salary, not how much I like the player.

    Based on game flow and the high total, he can be included as part of a game stack. He isn’t my top play, but I like him better than some others.

    What is your take on stacking Dalton, AJ & Mixon? I think there is a big possibility here for Mixon to flourish not just in the running game but the passing game as well. Thoughts?

    Loved this:

    “At what point does it stop being variance… and start being that this is just who Julio Jones is? How many touchdown-less weeks does it take?”

    Great Article! I’m really struggling with the “to fade, or not to fade” Gurley. On one hand he’s reliable and good for 20+ point upside, on the other he’s extremely expensive. Then it’s supposedly going to snowing and cold and there’s a narrative out there that Goff has PDPMS. (Pre-Denver Peyton Manning Syndrome) where he’s not as effective in the colder weather games. Looking into that he played in one game under 40 degrees his rookie year in Seattle. So I don’t think thats a viable take but in the snow the passing game could be neutered. This is what makes DFS so doggone fun! Thanks for the article! Good Luck, See y’all on the leaderboards!

    Yes! Absolutely viable in Gpp

    Just a note from a Steelers fan, AJ Green hasn’t scored a TD when covered by Joe Haden since 2012. Boyd is the play.

    yea, haden will be on green, variance of course can happen, but past history doesn’t looked good for this match up.

    2018 Haden doesn’t scare me as much. I’m still on Green. He ran circles around Xavien Howard last week.
