Tuttle's Take: Week 6

Having qualified for countless live finals, Dan Gaspar (MrTuttle05) knows what it takes to win in DFS. In this space each week, he’ll guide you through the lineup building process for both cash games and tournaments by going in-depth and giving out his “Tuttle’s Take” for every game on the main slate.

Week 6

Arizona Cardinals @ Minnesota Vikings (-10.5) 43


Tuttle’s Take:

The Vikings remain uninterested in running the ball and that’s unlikely to change regardless of if a questionable Dalvin Cook is able to suit up this week. Minnesota ranks 31st in rush attempts as QB Kirk Cousins shoulders the majority of the offensive workload, funneling targets to Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. Thielen has been remarkable this season, topping 100-yards in every game and averaging a massive 27.8 DK points per game over that five-game stretch. He’s the most reliable/consistent fantasy asset this season and he’s finally starting to get priced like it – he’s WR2 on DK and WR4 on FD. Despite his consistency, Thielen will likely continue to be under-owned this week with the majority of owners spending up for Julio at the WR position. Thielen is a strong GPP option as a pivot off Julio and a fine secondary option in cash games.

    Probably a stupid question Dan, but when you say “core play” does that refer to someone you would have in like 50%+ of your lineups if you’re multi entering some gpps? Or what does it mean exactly.

    Quick ? – For the 2nd table for each game, it looks like the items all say ‘Allowed’ under ‘Offensive Target Identity” and ‘Target %’ under ‘Defensive Target Identity’. Can you just confirm whether it’s a labeling, actual numbers, or I am stupid issue?

    Hey rimbo! Core play means a guy that will be in my cash lineup and will also have heavy exposure to in GPP’s.

    Hey Dan, you mentioned that Todd Gurley is easy to fit on FD, which implies there are a lot of value plays. What are some cash game core value pieces that you see in play on FD ?
