Moving onto Week 5 of the 2023 season, and we are going to give you some DraftKings bargain bin plays for the week. These are plays that are on the ultra-value/ GPP contrarian side. So generally avoid these plays in cash game lineups, but in GPPs- especially big fields go for it!
You can find all of our DFS content here, and be ready for the week.

Joshua Dobbs v CIN ($5,200)
Entering the season, Arizona were a consensus favourite to “win” the race for USC QB Cabel Williams and be the first team on the clock in the 2024 NFL Draft. On the same day Cardinals HC Jonathan Gannon confirmed Kyler Murray would remain on the PUP and miss at least 4 games, the organisation cut ties with veteran play-caller Colt McCoy, the man who had taken almost all first-team reps through the pre-season – leaving only career back-up Joshua Dobbs and 5th round rookie Clayton Tune in the QB room. Five weeks later and Joshua Dobbs has firmly established himself as the team’s top option under centre as well as a viable fantasy asset for your lineups. Dobbs faced off against Dallas in week 3 and the 49ers last week, two of the top three defenses in the NFL, and over the two contests Dobbs put up 454 yards for 3 TDs and no INTs as well as adding 93 yards on the ground. He gets to face off against a much friendlier Cincinnati Bengals unit this week at home. At only $5200, Dobbs could return excellent value against a Bengals team who bled 400 total yards to the Titans in week 4.
Zach Wilson @DEN ($4,900)
Can I interest you in the best performing quarterback from last week’s Jets v Chiefs game for under $5000? No, I’m not talking about Patrick Mahomes, but Zachary Kapono Wilson of the New York Football Jets. Wilson could consider himself unfortunate to be on the losing side last week, and despite taking accountability for the loss, it wasn’t on him. That said, do I think the No.2 overall pick from 2021 will be the saviour of the Jets’ Rodger-less season; no…but can he be an excellent option at QB this week for DFS; oh yes. Wilson passed on the Chiefs for 245 yards, 2 TDs and ZERO INTs – this week he goes against the 32nd ranked Denver Broncos, and although those numbers are still skewed by the brutal week 3 loss in Miami, the Broncos are a favourable matchup for quarterbacks. At $4900, rostering Wilson allows so much cap to pay up at WR on a strong slate – he’s a potential great value play.
