2021 Week 5 DraftKings Slate-Breakers

When it comes to DFS, everyone looks for those slate-breaking players (and if you are not, then you should be!), players who can win you the big bucks if they have a day and lower ownership, even better! This especially matters in tournaments, where you are looking to differentiate from your competition and sometimes even yourself and your other lineups, as opposed to cash games, where you would be after more ‘safer’ lineups to secure a more likely pot of cash. 

These articles will highlight those players who I feel can break the week’s slate and players you should be, at the very least, considering, going for position-by-position. 

Week Four Review


Well, to put it bluntly, Week Four was an absolute shambles. 

Nothing seemed to go right, and I paid the price through my DraftKings balance. I felt confident with my builds and process on the week, so the significance of the loss was a bit of a surprise. 

As a result, I will be heading into Week Five lighter than anticipated, but that could be a blessing in disguise with the number of potent offenses off the main slate. 

To say I am annoyed is an understatement, but I need to move on and focus on this week, which, as I have mentioned, could be another challenging week to navigate.
