Week 5 of the NFL season is here, we’ll have a 12-game classic slate coming our way on Sunday, October 6th! As we look to build the perfect DraftKings NFL lineup, which players should we invest in for our DFS lineup? From quarterbacks primed for a big day like Russell Wilson to high-volume running backs like Marlon Mack, check out our Week 5 NFL DraftKings DFS picks as we feature the week’s best studs and value picks to start on Sunday, October 6th.
Carson Wentz, PHI vs. NYJ, $6,100
At just shy of 287 yards per game, the New York Jets are giving up the 5th most passing yards per game of any team in the NFL in the early going. Enter Carson Wentz as a bona fide must-start quarterback in your Week 5 NFL DFS lineup. Priced out as the #6 QB for the classic Sunday slate of games, Wentz has ascended to 5th in MVP odds after a good start to his season passing the ball.
Wentz has tossed 9 touchdowns to just 2 interceptions on the season, and has had his two best DFS games at home this year (28 DKFP in Week 1, 21.7 DKFP in Week 3). Wentz has been over 20 DKFP in six of his last seven regular season home games and will be riding high fresh off a 3-touchdown performance with a long week of rest.
The Jets have dealt with their fair share of early season injuries, but even the return of Quinnen Williams shouldn’t be enough to slow Wentz at home. At $6,100, this feels like outstanding value on a QB who’s been a fantasy beast at home in recent memory.
