TNF First Look | Week 6

October 13, 2021 by Dylan Bell

Welcome to the TNF First Look for Week 6! I will be going over a few players who stand out to me as good plays for every TNF and MNF slate throughout the season. Make sure you never miss the article by joining our free DFS newsletter!

TNF Picks:

Tom Brady, QB

DK : $12,400 | FD: $16,500

Analysis: There’s not much I need to talk about here. Tom Brady is looking like he’s still the best QB in the league at age 44. He’s the highest scoring fantasy QB on the season. Just play him and build your lineup from there.

Jalen Hurts, QB

DK : $11,800 | FD: $15,500

Analysis: This is a TNF slate where you’re gonna want to try and squeeze both QB’s into your lineup. Hurts has yet to have a game under 21 DK points. He’s thrown over 300 yards in both games that the Eagles have lost by 2+ possessions (TB are 7 point favorites) and he always has great rushing upside. It’s hard to imagine a situation where the optimal lineup doesn’t include both QB’s.

Antonio Brown, WR

DK : $8,200 | FD: $11,500

Analysis: If I had to just pick 1 WR on the Tampa Bay side, I’m going Antonio Brown without hesitation. It’s a mystery to me why AB is still priced below Chris Godwin. AB has looked more like a #1 WR this season than a #3. I’m going to go back to AB again and again until they get his price right. He should be priced higher than Chris Godwin, and very similarly to Mike Evans. AB has 19 targets over the last 2 games, has 3 TD’s in his 4 games played this season and has gone for 120+ receiving yards twice already.

Zach Ertz, TE

DK : $3,200 | FD: $6,500

Analysis: Zach Ertz is looking like a great play in this TNF game with Dallas Goddert on the COVID list with a very slim chance of being able to play tomorrow night. Ertz has already emerged as a consistent part in the Eagles offense over the last few weeks with 7, 8 and 6 targets over the last 3 week. That was with Goddert playing as well. With Goddert now out, the sky is the limit for Mr. Ertz.

DeVonta Smith, WR

DK : $8,200 | FD: $12,000

Analysis: I’m expecting the Eagles to be playing from behind in this game. That means a lot of passing for Jalen Hurts and a lot of opportunities for DeVonta Smith. Smith has already been a big part of the Eagles offense in his rookie year. He has 7+ targets in 4 out of his first 5 NFL games. He’s also managed 15+ DK points in 3/5 games. The Eagles are gonna have to pass a lot and I expect a lot of those looks to go DeVonta Smith’s way.
