DraftKings Week 5 Slate Breakdown with Cash and GPP Picks

It’s Week 5 and these are my DraftKings cash game and tournament strategies. By offering a general approach to the week, along with a player pool to consider, you should walk away feeling well-equipped no matter your bankroll strategy or game selection process.

Main Slate Cash Game Strategy


Two quarterbacks priced below $6,000, top 4for4’s value reports this week, suggesting that the optimal cash game strategy for Week 5 is to pay down at the position. Sitting atop the value report is Blake Bortles ($5,500) who faces a Kansas City defense ranked 30th in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed (aFPA) to opposing quarterbacks. In fact, the Chiefs are the only team on the main slate that rank in the bottom 10 in aFPA to every position. Since the beginning of last season, Bortles has averaged 24.9 fantasy points in five games game without Leonard Fournette, compared to 18.7 points with Fournette.
