DraftKings Week 5 is here, and we’ve built a fantasy football lineup that offers a combination of upside and floor. Check out who we’ve picked this week.
DraftKings has become a popular alternative to regular fantasy football, and especially with the sports betting scene on the rise, this may become the new go-to for fantasy footballers.
In Week 5, our lineup has plenty of upside while retaining a fairly solid floor. Through playing good matchups and identifying high-volume guys, we were able to set a solid lineup this week that you should definitely consider in DraftKings this week.
Best DraftKings fantasy football lineup for Week 5
QB: Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals ($6,700)
Joe Burrow has been a fantasy bust, but only because his ADP was very high this offseason. He was drafted as a top-five quarterback often, when he’s more in the 5-10 range. Either way, he’s very talented, and the Bengals offense looks to finally be returning to last season’s form after a slow start.
Burrow gets a dream matchup against the Baltimore Ravens, who have allowed the most passing yards per game through four weeks, as well as the second-most fantasy points to quarterbacks. To me, Burrow’s slightly discounted price combined with this smash spot matchup makes this pick a no-brainer.
