NFL Week 5 DFS Picks – FanDuel & DraftKings

It’s finally Week 5 of the National Football League. Find the best value for your Daily Fantasy Sports Lineups here…

  1. Carson Palmer vs. Philadelphia Eagles DK $5900 FD $7200
    • The Arizona Cardinals have been slinging the ball through the air with their RB David Johnson out. Carson has thrown for 325+ yards the past three games and is going up against an Eagles secondary allowing 301 YPG through the air. Priced much lower than the top tier QBs, Palmer is a good pivot to free up some cash at other positions.
  2. Leveon Bell vs Jacksonville Jaguars DK $9500 FD $9500
    • Leveon is a MUST PLAY versus the Jaguars run defense. It is absolutely atrocious. Consider this an investment in your team.
  3. Christian McCaffery vs. Detroit Lions DK $5700 FD $6200
    • McCaffery likely won’t have a high ownership percentage this week. He is still searching for his first NFL touchdown but he could be heavily involved in a passing game for the Carolina Panthers who are expected to be trailing versus the Lions. McCaffery ranks 4th in the NFL in snap percentage at 76% which ranks just behind the likes of Leveon Bell, Ezekiel Elliott & Todd Gurley. Not bad company.
  4. Jaron Brown vs. Philadelphia Eagles DK $4500 FD $4500
    • With injuries to other Arizona Cardinals receivers in John Brown and J.J. Nelson, Jaron Brown will see an increase in targets against the aforementioned poor Eagles secondary. Over the past two games, Jaron has been on the field for 94% of the offensive snaps. I’ll take my chances on sheer volume here for a low price.
  5. DeVante Parker vs. Tennessee Titans DK $6600 FD $6100
    • The Miami Dolphins offense has to be better than its past three games… right? What better time to do it than Week 5 against the weak Tennessee Titans defense. Parker and Landry are the two targets QB Jay Cutler will look to with Landry receiving most of the underneath routes. Expect Parker to catch a few deep balls.
