Week 5 NFL DFS Bargains

We have an interesting slate ahead of us this week. To start, we have four teams on bye: Falcons, Saints, Redskins, and Broncos. With these four teams out, and the Patriots and Buccaneers having already played, there are a lot of fantasy studs that we will not be able to use. This is especially present at the quarterback position, since we are missing Ryan, Brees, Cousins and Brady. These are four great players, despite the current MVP’s struggles to start the year. With them out, that also means there’s some really valuable pass-catchers that we will miss. These include Julio Jones, Mike Evans, Michael Thomas, Demaryius Thomas, and many others.

That’s a lot of go-to options that we won’t have, and the list is even longer when we consider injuries. That is why we see obvious price markups on the studs this week. For example, Aaron Rodgers is $1,000 higher than the second-highest priced quarterback, Russell Wilson, on DraftKings, and $1,500 more than him on FanDuel. We see this at the running back position too, with Le’Veon Bell coming in at a whopping $9,500 on both sites. It would be nice to get these guys in our lineups, but we need a little, or a lot, of salary relief at other positions. That is exactly what this article is about!

These are players who could be valuable and help you with roster construction. They are NOT players you’re necessarily targeting, but rather the players that allow you to target the best plays on the board. They are also the ones that may provide low ownership, thus making them good tournament plays. Let’s reach into the bargain bin and see what we have for this week!
