NFL Bargain Bin | Week 6
NFL Bargain Bin | Week 6
October 15, 2021 by Dylan Bell
Welcome to the NFL Week 6 Bargain Bin. Every week throughout the season I will be going over the best point per dollar value plays on the slate.
Week 6 Bargain Bin:
Taylor Heinicke, QB
DK: $5,800 | FD: $7,300
Analysis: Taylor Heinicke is going to be the go-to QB in cash games this week. He’s managed 23+ DraftKings points in 3 out of the 4 games he’s started this season. He has a high floor because of his rushing ability (83 rush yards over the last 2 games). And it’s also a great matchup vs KC with a great game script. It’s a high total game with KC currently sitting as 6.5 point favorites. WAS should be playing from behind and passing the ball a lot, and the KC secondary just has not been good at all this season. Great spot for Heinicke to have a big game.
Taylor Heinicke has at least 20 fantasy points in 3 of his 4 starts this season and 83 rushing yards over the last 2 weeks. It may not always be pretty, but the points can pile up. pic.twitter.com/NdmU0W8tvd— Field Yates (@FieldYates) October 14, 2021
Tee Higgins, WR
DK: $5,300 | FD: $6,400
Analysis: Higgins is way under priced at $5,300. He returned from injury in week 5 and had 7 targets. He has 15+ DraftKings points in 2 of his 3 games played this season. The Lions secondary is historically bad. There’s a lot of reasons to love Higgins at such a low price this week. He will be one of the more higher owned players on the slate and for good reason.

Sterling Shepard, WR
DK: $5,000 | FD: $6,200
Analysis: Shepard is another guy who’s just too cheap. Shepard had 19 targets across the first 2 games of the season before he got hurt. Kenny Golladay is listed as doubtful in this game and if he’s out and Shepard plays I really like Shepard a lot at $5k on DraftKings. He’s the perfect bring back in your LAR stacks.

Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR
DK: $4,200 | FD: $5,200
Analysis: It might not be pretty, but Amon-Ra St. Brown is the #1 WR in Detroit and it’s rare to get a #1 WR at just $4,200. St, Brown has 8 targets in each of the last 2 games and he’s put up 13 DK points in both games as well without a TD. The Bengals secondary doesn’t scare me at all one of these days St. Brown is going to get into the endzone on top of his already solid production lately and he’s going to smash his very low price tag.
Ricky Seals-Jones, TE
DK: $3,000 | FD: $5,000
Analysis: RSJ is my favorite value on the entire slate right now. I love paying down at TE and Seals-Jones is the perfect candidate. Filling in for Logan Thomas last week, who is on IR, RSJ had 9 targets. Washington loves using their TE’s in the passing game and that isn’t going to change with RSJ starting instead of Thomas. WAS is up against the Chiefs who have had a terrible pass defense so far on the season and they should also be trailing throughout the game, meaning more passing and more pass catching opportunities for RSJ.
