DFS SNF Showdown Picks Week 6


The Sunday Night Football game for Week 6 should be over before halftime. The “Battle of New York” has the (1-4) New York Giants traveling upstate to take on the (3-2) Buffalo Bills. It has to be good to be home for the Bills. They laid an egg overseas last week and now they are ready to take out their frustrations on a lifeless Giants team. The Bills are averaging 43 points a game at home and they have not lost a game in Orchard Park. The Bills are 14.5 Point favorites. That may not be enough, since the Giants will have a tough time scoring points on Sunday Night Football.

Here are my Showdown Contest picks for the Sunday Night Football game…



The Giants will be without DANIEL JONES Sunday Night. That means it will be the TYROD TAYLOR Revenge Game. Taylor would have been good play if he was priced down this week, but DK is listing Taylor at only $200 cheaper than Jones. That is too much to pay for Taylor, so I will fade him on Sunday Night Football.

The Giants could be getting SAQUAN BARKLEY back for this game. He is by far the best player for the Giants and the Bills know this. If Barkley plays, he won’t be at 100%. The Bills Defense will stack the box to stop him. I will have a few shares of Barkley if he plays, but not as much as the field.

The best play at WR for the Giants is WAN’DALE ROBISON. He catches a lot of screen passes and other short passes from the slot. This may be the only offense the Giants have in this game, so I will have some shares of Robinson Sunday night.

I plan to load my lineups with players from the Bills’ side of the ball, so I will have the most exposure to the “punt plays” from the Giants’ team. These players include PARIS CAMPBELL, JALIN HYATT and STERLING SHEPARD.




JOSH ALLEN is a lock for the Captain Position in all Cash Contest and he should be the top pick for the Captain Position in most Tournament Contests. Allen is averaging 31.58 DK Points at home this year. That would be 47.37 DK Points from the Captain Position. There is no need to try and be cute this week in Cash Contests. Simply take the “free square” with Allen.

STEFON DIGGS is a good pivot in the Captain Position for Tournament Contests from Josh Allen. I will play the Josh Allen + Stefon Diggs stack in all of my contests tonight. They are by far the best players on this slate and the matchup is too good to pass up.

JAMES COOK started off the season averaging 15.27 DK Points in his the first four games. He laid an egg last week, but I expect Cook to bounce back. The game script favors Cook as a strong play from the Captain Position in some Tournament Contests. He should get a lot of carries in garbage time Sunday night.

GABE DAVIS has scored a TD in four consecutive games. He will have a good chance to score again Sunday night. I plan to play some lineups where I use Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs, James Cooks and Gabe Davis. Then I will punt the last position with a player from the Giants side of the ball.

Some good “punt plays” for the Bills include LATAVIUS MURRAY, DEONTE HARTY and KHALIL SHAKIR.















Good Luck Sunday Night!
