Johnny G’s Defense Picks Week 5 – DraftKings & FanDuel NFL

After a wild week of upsets and injuries, we dig into Week 5 of the NFL season, specifically defenses.

Johnny G invites the NFL experts from Hammer DFS to share some of their research and insights to help you build your rosters and cross the money line in your DFS contests.

Cash Plays

Khalil Mack Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders defense has 10 sacks and 4 fumbles in 4 games on the season.  They’re giving up 19.75 points per game.  The weakest part of their unit is the secondary.  They’re averaging 28.2 FanDuel points given up to wide receivers per game.  The good news is they are home to face a mess of a Ravens squad fresh off an international flight from London.  Flacco is playing terribly.  Great chance they finally snag an interception this Sunday.

GPP Plays

Philadelphia Eagles defense

I will take the Philadelphia Eagles defense this week against the banged up, Cardinals.  The Cardinals have only scored 6 touchdowns all year, and last week it took until the overtime period to do it against the lowly 49ers, 24th overall team defense.  With JJ Nelson and John Brown questionable to play, I like that Eagles Defense to take a stand at home.  You can expect a ton of attention given to Larry Fitzgerald, and with the Cardinals other offensive weapons not at full strength, I expect Carson Palmer to have a long day.


Good luck in your NFL DFS contests this week!

This is just a taste of the information that the experts over at Hammer DFS are grinding over day in, day out.  From an opportunity perspective, the NFL is a sport with only a few chances to jump on the right plays and make money for the week.  If you need extra help or you just can’t put up the points you want to, check in with the guys at Hammer and see for yourself the difference a DFS Consultant can make.
