Week 6 DraftKings Cash-Game Picks


Taylor Heinicke, Washington ($5,800)

Kansas City at Washington should be a fantasy-point bonanza. Both defenses rank bottom 7 in points allowed, yards allowed and Football Outsiders DVOA. The game sports a 54.5-point over/under -- easily highest on the main slate.

Patrick Mahomes ($8,300) is obviously a great play, checking in as our top projected QB of the week. But we can save $2,500 by going to the other side of this game.

Heinicke predictably struggled vs. a tough Saints defense last week. But he topped 23 DraftKings points in each of the 3 games before that. He’s an aggressive passer and has also averaged 27.5 rushing yards across his 4 starts this season.

The Chiefs enter this one ranked 31st in Football Outsiders’ pass defense DVOA, 32nd in DK points allowed to QBs and 32nd in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs.

Also consider: Lamar Jackson ($7,400) and Justin Herbert ($7,300)
