For your convenience, we have broken the picks down by DraftKings contest game set. Best of luck this week!

VALUE PLAYS: SATURDAY EARLY SLATE
Sam Richardson, Iowa State QB ($7300) vs. Texas Tech:
Richardson accounted for three total scores last week against Kansas and could match those numbers this week versus Texas Tech. This game could be a total shootout with neither team playing any defense. He may have the opportunity to throw the ball all over the field as the Cyclones try to keep pace with the high octane Red Raiders offense. Look for Richardson to easily reach value and be a nice GPP option this week. A stat line of 300 total yards and a few scores seem well within reach for this Cyclone in Week Six.
Brent Stockstill, MTSU QB ($7200) vs. Western Kentucky:
Stockstill is averaging 23.0 DK points per game this season and could go well north of that number this week against Western Kentucky. The Hilltoppers pass defense is ranked 107th in the country and could get torched by Stockstill. He has two very good wide outs at his disposal and could post a huge stat line in this C-USA shootout. Expect plenty of points in this game and Stockstill could account for plenty of fantasy points. This Blue Raider could make a great #2 QB on DK this week.
Shannon Brooks, Minnesota RB ($3600) vs. Purdue:
Brooks is another freshman running back that has worked his way into significant playing time this season. He has recorded ten carries in each of the past two games and could see plenty of work against Purdue this week. The Boilermakers rush defense is ranked 99th in the nation coming into this week and may find it difficult to stop the Gophers ground game. Look for Brooks to easily reach value and allow DFS players to stack at other positions. It would not be a big surprise to see Brooks score a touchdown or two in Week Six.
Markell Jones, Purdue RB ($4600) vs. Minnesota:
This true freshman had a huge game against a tough Michigan State defense last week with 157 yards rushing and two scores. He looks to have surpassed DJ Knox as the starting tailback and could have another big outing this week versus Minnesota. The Gophers rush defense is middle of the pack and could give up a few big plays to this impressive youngster. Look for Jones to blow his price point out of the water and make for an excellent punt play this week.
Michael Thomas, Ohio State WR ($4700) vs. Maryland:
Thomas has scored in three straight games and could extend that streak to four this week against Maryland. He is the top option in the Ohio State passing game and should continue to see plenty of targets each week. He could have a very nice stat line against a Maryland defense that is simply not very good and allows plenty of big plays. Look for Thomas to find the end zone again this week and easily pay off on his low price tag.
Marken Michel, WR UMASS ($4200) vs. Bowling Green:
While star WR Tajae Sharpe gets all the love from DFS players, Michel quietly puts up solid numbers week in and week out. He had 113 yards receiving and two scores last week against FIU and could duplicate those numbers this week versus Bowling Green. The Falcons is dreadful, ranking 118th in the nation. Expect a ton of points and yards in this contest and Michel could have plenty of both. Michel could be an excellent GPP option this week as his ownership percentage could be very low.
VALUE PLAYS: SATURDAY LATE SLATE
Kent Myers, Utah State QB ($5800) vs. Fresno State:
Myers started last week for the injured Chuckie Keeton and responded with 37.58 DK points against Colorado State. He showed he can make plays with his feet with 191 yards rushing and a score. He could post another big fantasy line against a Fresno State defense that ranks 98th in total defense in 2015. Expect Myers to easily hit value this week and make for a super punt play. Myers could be a terrific GPP option in Week Six.
James Summers, ECU QB ($6300) vs. BYU:
We will begin with a plea to ECU Head Coach Ruffin McNeill: Could you please just name this kid the starter and move on? All this guy has done is come off the bench in the last two games and dropped 40.3 & 34.62 DK points! He is a running machine with 254 yards and four rushing touchdowns in less than two full games. Even if he is not named the starter before lineups lock, he could still be a nice GPP option with his considerable upside.
LJ Scott, Michigan State RB ($5200) vs. Rutgers:
This stud freshman may have had his coming out party last week against Purdue with 146 yards rushing and two scores. He received more carries than Madre London and could be on the verge of stealing the starting job from him. He could run all over a Rutgers defense that could be hard pressed to stop this young bruiser. Expect Scott to find the end zone again this week and easily hit value. Take a shot with this kid before his price goes up.
Francis Bernard, BYU RB ($3500) vs. ECU:
This freshman was called into duty last week against UCONN because of all the injuries in the BYU backfield. He responded with 69 yards rushing and a touchdown. He could see even more carries this week if Algernon Brown is unable to go against ECU. The Pirates rush defense is ranked 96th in the nation and could give up some chunk plays to Bernard this week. This Cougar could be a solid RB punt play this week given his rock bottom pricing.
Calvin Ridley, Alabama WR ($4400) vs. Arkansas:
Ridley has snared a receiving touchdown in the last two games and appears to be the go to guy in the Alabama passing attack. He has a nice matchup this week versus an Arkansas pass defense that is ranked 101st in the country. Look for Ridley to see plenty of targets this week and easily reach value. Expect another solid outing from this freshman in Week Six.
Tim White, Arizona State WR ($3600) vs. Colorado:
White has scored three touchdowns in the last four games and actually leads the Sun Devils in TD receptions. He also receives the occasional carry out of the backfield, which only helps his value. The Colorado defense is not very good and could be in for a world of hurt against an improving Arizona State offense. White could be worth a roll of the dice given his next to nothing price and could make for a good punt option at WR.
