Week 6 of the NFL season is here, and we’re now two weeks into one of the best new formats in DFS — Super 15 on SuperDraft DFS. The Super 15 contests will be interesting in Week 6 with only 10 games on the main slate, but there are attractive options nonetheless.
Similar to the posts you’ve seen on social media regarding building a roster based on a $15 budget and allotted players/prices, you can now integrate this game into DFS and go head-to-head with your competition.
The Super 15 grid for Week 6 is below:
Top three options to build your Super 15 lineups around.
Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers ($4)
Getting one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL for a discount relative to the others on the Super 15 slate feels like a good place to start. It also helps when he gets to square off with one of the most exploitable secondaries in football.
In two games against the Bears last season, Rodgers averaged 225.5 passing yards per game, nearly a 50-yard decrease from his season average, but also averaged four touchdown passes per game as opposed to under three per game against all other opponents. This, in large part, is because he only attempted 26.5 pass attempts per game against the Bears last season because of how early he was able to pick them apart.
If getting two additional touchdowns means sacrificing 40-50 passing yards, that’s a tradeoff I will take any day of the week. With betting props around the market sitting around 257 passing yards, 1.5 touchdowns (with juice on the over), and 34.5 passing attempts, we could see another surgical performance from Rodgers.
Darrel Williams, RB, Kansas City Chiefs ($2)
Sunday’s slate is full of running back value, starting with Darrel Williams of the Chiefs after Clyde Edwards-Helaire was placed on the IR earlier in the week.
While it’s very likely he operates in some sort of timeshare with Jerick McKinnon, Williams should be primed for a near every-down role. It’s not something we’ve seen a ton out of Williams, but when we’ve seen him in an expanded role, he’s delivered. Since the beginning of the 2019 season, Williams has played in seven games where he’s logged at least 10 touches. In those games, he’s averaged 46.9 rushing yards and three catches for 23.7 receiving yards per game (70.6 total yards per game) as well as five total touchdowns in the seven-game span.
Given the void that needs to be filled, Williams should have no problem outperforming the $2 tag on the Super 15 slate and allows you to spend up elsewhere.
Devontae Booker, RB, New York Giants ($1)
Similar to Williams, Booker finds himself as one of the numerous value backs that are being vaulted into expanded roles in Week 6.
After Saquon Barkley got hurt only six snaps into the game in Week 5, Booker took over and dominated the usage in the Giants’ backfield, logging 60 snaps, 16 carries and 30 routes run. The only other running back to see the field was Elijhaa Penny, who only saw six snaps to spell Booker every so often. There is legitimately zero competition for Booker with Barkley out. While he was only able to muster 35 yards on the ground, the sheer volume, especially in the red zone, should warrant attention this week. It’s very unlikely that there will be another player for $1 in the Super 15 format this season with a 20-touch upside. Take advantage while you can.
Budget remaining after the core: $8
