Main Slate Cash Game Strategy
Deshaun Watson ($35) is coming off a poor Week 4 outing but it should have been huge. He just missed on two deep touchdowns, while he continues to run, scoring his third rushing touchdown of the year. Houston’s offensive line has been holding Watson back but a matchup with the Falcons should turn things around. Atlanta is sporting the fourth-lowest sack rate in the NFL at 3.94%, while also coughing up 2.61 points per drive, the fourth-most in the NFL. The Falcons just allowed three touchdown passes to Marcus Mariota last week and are now surrendering nearly two passing scores per game. With Watson averaging 4.5 carries per game (including 0.8 in the red zone), the floor is solid and in Week 5, the upside is through the roof.
