Bottom of the Barrel 2023 NFL DFS Week 6 RB

Bottom of the Barrel 2023 NFL DFS Week 16 RB

Welcome to the Bottom of the Barrel 2023 NFL DFS Week 6 RB Edition!

I’ve always antiquated football with the fall. The fall with horror movies. When discussing horror movies there are a few rules to go over! Seeing how we are already onto Bottom of the Barrel Week 6 some unwritten horror movie laws apply here! Instead, let's flip them into some unwritten DFS rules!

  1. Waiver wire RBs aren't always as sneaky in DFS as you think!
  2. Fade at your own risk is a legitimate quandary.
  3. Double stacking same team RBs can work!
  4. DvP is fantastic finally!
  5. DvP can still stink!
  6. The first built line is always the best line!
  7. Tinkering is the death of any DFS entry, period.

On social media you see everything! On social media, anything goes. I look at daily fantasy sports on Twitter and Facebook as being in an actual horror movie! The accounts and content posted daily are the same as a masked man carrying a large knife! They will chase you down, cause anxiety, and murder your fantasy football joy!

Telling the truth is among the most freeing and respectable actions we can do. The longer you hold in and stuff down the worse you will feel. Our secrets make us sick. When something bad happens to us there are only a few things we can do. Let it define you, destroy you, or strengthen you. Which path are you choosing?

Jonathan Taylor Colts @ Jaguars(6th)

(FD-$6,500)(DK-$6,600)(Y!-$21)

Anytime we can get a stud running back at a low cost I am all in! JT is still finding his footing after the long layoff and being on the PUP list. The drama is also over between him and the Colts. Yet, Zach Moss still lurks behind him and in the locker room.

Jacksonville has been great against the running game but it's Jonathan Taylor. Given the suppressed priced tag and the talent, he is worth the risk in Week 6. I have JT around 13-14 carries, 65-70 yards, 2-3 receptions, and another 15-20 yards.

Jerome Ford Browns vs. 49ers(9th)

(FD-$6,400)(DK-$5,200)(Y!-$16)

Embed from Getty Images

A starting Browns running back not named Nick Chubb is a scary thing. Ford demolished the Steelers in Week 2 and has done nothing since. It's been really bad. In Week 3 he averaged 1.8 yards per carry. In Week 4 he averaged 2.89 yards per carry. Then the Browns were on their bye-week. Now, they welcome one of the best teams in the NFL, the San Francisco 49ers.

The idea behind Jerome Ford is half parts stupidity and equal parts nuts. However, the volume is what I'm after. Plus, Ford sees a nice mixture of receiving work and goal-line carries. The expectation of 150+ all-purpose yards is not feasible. It's not reasonable but a dozen carries for 50 yards and a touchdown is. The idea of about a 65% snap share on offense also furthers my cause my utilizing Ford in multi-entry GPPs.

Rachaad White Buccaneers vs. Lions(2nd)

(FD-$6,300)(DK-$5,500)(Y!-$15)

Embed from Getty Images

Mr. White is averaging 15.75 carries to go along with 51.5 rushing yards a game this season. The only issue is the fact he's scored only one touchdown all year. What I love about Rachaad is the fact we can count on no fewer than 14 carries and at least, two receptions a game. Consistency is king. In a weird way, White is that perfect balance of consistency and volume!

On paper, the matchup isn't ideal but last week the lowly Panthers scored 24 points against this Lions defense. Again, it does not matter who wins the actual game we just want action. This game should provide us with plenty of that! Who would've thought a Baker Mayfield vs. Jared Goff game would be so fun? No? Maybe I am the only one!

We can count on 14-15 carries, 55-60 yards, 2-3 catches, and another 20 yards. Want the kicker? Rachaad White will 100% score a touchdown this week, at home, against the Detroit Lions.

Rhamondre Stevenson Patriots @ Raiders(17th)

(FD-$6,200)(DK-$5,400)(Y!-$16)

Embed from Getty Images

It has been a long time since the Patriots have been this bad. My entire adult life they've been fantastic. They have been a dynasty, in every sense of the word. That is over. All good things must come to an end. This time around as abruptly as possible. Like a crash test dummy car hitting the wall driving at 90mph. So, what's left?

New England still has Rhamondre Stevenson. Granted, last week was awful. The Patriots got behind quickly and lost big. Basically relegating Stevenson to the bench and being a literal non-factor. He had 8 carries for 24 yards. Two targets but not a single catch. Okay, well that was all the bad news. Time for the good!

Stevenson should be much more active in Vegas on Sunday. The Vegas defense is giving up the 10th-most rushing yards per game. That is great news for not only Rhamondre but also a Patriots team needing to bounce back in a big way! I have him around 15-16 carries, 70-75 yards, 2-3 receptions, 20-25 yards, and a touchdown.

D’Onta Foreman Bears vs. Vikings(10th)

(FD-$6,000)(DK-$4,400)(Y!-$10)

Embed from Getty Images

Unwritten rule 1. Waiver wire RBs aren't always as sneaky in DFS as you think! Except in this case. My article, I can do as I please. All kidding aside, Foreman was in the mix before the season started! All the Herbert owners freaked out but were fine. Then Chicago drafted Roschon Johnson but were still okay. Fast forward a little and Herbert looked great! The rookie Johnson was awesome! However, both are now hurt, and out. So the Bears turn to D'Onta Foreman.

In my notebook, along with the binding, I wrote "1st B&B HOFer" next to D'Onta's name. The past few seasons when his name is called he delivers. He is the perfect back for a game such as this one. Both teams are 1-4 and need a win in the worst way. We've seen Foreman do this before. The last time was with the Panthers last season. He is a hard-nosed runner who always falls forward.

Miles Sanders Panthers @ Dolphins(19th)

(FD-$5,900)(DK-$5,000)(Y!-$15)

Embed from Getty Images

If ever there was a time for him to rise from the ashes it is this week. If not then he stays down and we cut bait. Miami is a 13.5-point favorite. In betting terms, the Panthers are in big-time trouble. That 70 the Dolphins dropped on Denver could be child's play.

Realistically speaking Carolina will be behind early and often. The same thing happened last week in Detroit and it did not favor Miles one bit. So why would it be any different this week? I do not know. I cannot make you any promises. I have no real answer. However, I will say Carolina head coach Frank Reich should have a better plan this week. One that involves more Miles, shoulder issues, or not. It's his ass in the jackpot, not Sanders.

Sanders shouldn't have any issues getting to 75 yards and a touchdown this week.

Emari Demercado Cardinals @ Rams(9th)

(FD-$5,900)(DK-$4,900)(Y!-$13)

Embed from Getty Images

Folks rushed to snag this kid from waivers today. While Keaontay Ingram is listed as the Cardinal's RB1. Weird. Strange. Ingram has missed Arizona's last two games because of a neck injury. Any website you check in on and type Keaontay and Emari you'll get the same message per Sleeper, "Many were optimistic that rookie Emari Demercado would get the bulk of the work in Week 6, but if the depth chart is any indication, Ingram may be the back to own in this backfield for the time being."

So, we need to make a decision. Plain and simple. Or I will do it for us if that's ok? My choice is 23-year-old Keaontay Ingram. See what I did here? Some top-level super spy stuff. List Emari Demercado as the player I'm into to fool those of you who just scroll through without reading while in reality, Ingram is the better play, to me.

Tyler Allgeier Falcons vs. Commanders(13th)

(FD-$5,700)(DK-$4,600)(Y!-$16)

Embed from Getty Images

The switch has officially been made as Bijan is the superior player. Which we all knew was the case but Allgeier can still be used in certain situations. We can expect 14-15 carries from Tyler and 16-17 from Bijan. While Robinson will be more highly owned, obviously, Tyler can still provide value.

Let's lock Tyler in at 15 carries, 60 yards, and a catch or two for another 10 yards. Truth be told this game is more interesting to me than most. Over/under at 42.5 points. Washington's team implied point total at 20. While Atlanta's team implied a point total of 22.5. We're in for a slugfest here! I want in!
