DraftKings NFL Picks Week 6


Week 6 starts us out with 11 games for the DraftKings Main Slate, as long as there are no games canceled due to Covid. Of these 11 games, there are 5 with implied totals greater than 50 points with all of them holding a close spread (less than 4 points). We're also dealing with a few key injuries that are going to open us up for value plays. Quickly stated, there is a lot to like about this slate at first glance. I'm already looking at some "green" spots on my matchup  chart that grab my attention as well as some games that look like they will provide terrific game environments, such as DET/JAX, ATL/MIN, HOU/TEN, and GB/TB With my workbook ready and my key injury notes in hand, let's dive in and see how we can build better lines than the field this week.
