Talbot’s Treasures is back for the 2020 NFL season. Last season we made a decision to rebrand Talbot’s Treasures from a Cash write up to a NFL DFS Bargain Plays article. I look at the low cost players at each position to give you the best opportunity to win. These plays come with risks. You can easily get a zero out of some of them as they are definitely being picked for their potential upside.
If you have questions, ask! If you came here for my Cash Plays, don’t fret! You can still do so by checking out my NFL DFS Cash Games articles. There you will find all off the NFL DFS Cash game goodness you have come to know me for. We also have some new tools this season, like the DraftKings Optimizer and FanDuel Optimizer so you can MME with ease this season. Lots of other articles available here as well!
Lets get to Talbot’s Treasures!
Week 6 Bargain QBs
Kyle Allen (6.4k FD/5.1k DK)
Allen sat out the 2nd half of the game last week after he was hurt right around the 2 minute warning before the half. In the time he played, he threw 9 completions on 13 attempts, for 74 yards, and ran in a TD from 7 yards out. Those are decent numbers for the lowest price starting QB on the slate. He more than likely won’t win you a million dollars, but he’s a low price QB with lots of potential.
Week 6 Bargain RBs
Phillip Lindsay (5.1k FD/4.3k DK)
Lindsay is coming back after hurting his foot in week 1, and should immediately see some touches. Last report out of Denver was that Gordon missed practice on Friday because he was sick, so this could mean an increase in role for Lindsay right out of the gate if Melvin Gordon isn’t up to playing. It’s going to be a tough defense in the Patriots, but at his price, he should get you some decent value.
D’Andre Swift (5.4k FD/4.5k DK)
Swift is ready for a more prominent role, and this week against the Jaguars looks like a good opportunity for him. He’s had good action in the passing game so far, and it won’t surprise me to see him take on a bigger workload running the ball as well. I think Adrian Peterson has been a good mentor, and coming off a bye week is when teams adjust and make changes.
Week 6 Bargain WRs
Jeff Smith (4.9k FD/3.0k DK)
So this looks familiar as I listed Jeff Smith here last week as well. He had the making of a huge week as he saw 11 targets in the game against the Cardinals. Unfortunately, he only caught 3 of them for 23 yards, but that’s 20 targets in 2 weeks for Smith. He’s definitely a great punt at WR this week against the Dolphins, and if he can even connect on a couple more passes, he’s going to pay off easily.
Darnell Mooney (5.0k FD/3.0k DK)/ Cordarelle Patterson (4.7kFD/ 3.2K DK)
Both of these guys are super low price and have been making impacts on the Bears. Mooney is seeing about 5 targets a game and in a game with the high powered Carolina offense, he could see even more this week. Patterson is the closest thing the bears have to a RB2 right now, and he’s seeing both targets and touches out of the backfield.
Week 6 Bargain TEs
Trey Burton (4.7k FD/3.1k DK)
Burton is looking like the TE1 for the Colts since he’s leading the TEs in Indy in targets over the last 2 weeks. Moe Allie-Cox is on the injury report, and may not play. This means Burton will have to share the role less and increasing his chances to fall into the end zone for 6 easy points.
