Week 5 DraftKings Tournament Picks


Another big decision on this week's slate is whether to spend up at WR. I was burned last week spending up on Davante Adams ($8,200), but I’m okay going back to him if you have the budget for it.

Chris Godwin ($6,300)

14.1% Projected Ownership

Mike Evans and Antonio Brown will have their hands full with Xavien Howard and Byron Jones on the outside for Miami, which leaves Godwin to take advantage of Justin Coleman in the slot. This Buccaneers receiver core is always matchup-based, and Godwin has a decisive advantage over the other two in this matchup.

Bengals WRs Ja’Marr Chase ($5,800), Tyler Boyd ($5,300) & Tee Higgins ($5,000)

9.1%, 6.4% & 10.0% Projected Ownership

Pick your poison here.As discussed above, this game has the 2nd highest over/under on the slate at 50.5, and the Packers stud corner Jaire Alexander is out. The Packers defense has allowed 17.8% fantasy points over expectation to WRs this season (8th highest). And that was with Alexander healthy.

I built a stack with Burrow, Higgins and Boyd to differentiate from the more popular stacks with Chase who has the most difficult matchup (Eric Stokes) of the three WRs.

Marvin Jones ($5,700)

5.0% Projected Ownership

Coming off a down week, it will distract a lot of DFS players from Marvin Jones being the clear alpha in this offense. He had 28 targets over the first 3 games — and now DJ Chark is out.

The Titans are giving away fantasy points to the WR position, allowing over 51 points per game to WRs (2nd) and most recently allowing the putrid New York Jets to throw all over them with Corey Davis and Jamison Crowder both finishing top 15 in PPR last week.

Some other cheaper options: Henry Ruggs ($5,600), Antonio Brown ($5,200) & Jaylen Waddle ($4,800)
