It’s finally here- Week 5 of the 2023 season, and the third DraftKings main slate. We are back offering you DFS advice to try and help you navigate your way to victories throughout the season. The players selected here are based on their price, their ability to hit value and likely ownership. The selections are leaning more towards GPP slates, rather than cash (50/50) slates. But let’s get into it

Kirk Cousins v KC ($6,900)
Captain Kirk left managers disappointed last time out against the Panthers, with phasers set to “mildly irritate” rather than kill against a stout Carolona defense. Cousins’ mark of 139 passing yards was over 200 shy of any of his other 3 outings this season, yet his efficiency remained consistent as the Vikings signal-caller almost mirrored his week 3 output with 7.3 yards per completion at a rate of 63.2%. Minnesota now host the Chiefs in the highest Over/Under of the week, and whilst KC and Mahomes haven’t been at their brilliant best this season, these are 2 high-power passing offenses. This one has shootout potential, and Kirk may see his ownership down after last week’s poor showing…beam me up.
C.J. Stroud @ATL ($6,000)
Oh C.J. I wish I knew how to quit you. I’ve waxed lyrical enough about the Texans rookie QB sensation (yes, I’m calling him a sensation) over the last few weeks, so hopefully by now you are on board the hype train with me. Week 4 against the Steelers saw Stroud post another 300 yard game and tag on another 2 TDs – giving him a 17-game pace of 5,151 yards and 26 scores. Do I think Stroud will continue to post fairytale numbers all season, of course not, but he’s still only $6000 and even against an Atlanta defense that has allowed only 13 points in their last 2 games, I can’t move away from this year’s No.2 overall pick…not yet.
Daniel Jones @MIA ($5,800)
The biggest argument for Daniel Jones this week is that this game is NOT on primetime. After falling to a career 1-12 in nationally televised games, Danny Dimes will be jumping for joy to be suiting up for a 1:00pm Eastern kick off in the Florida sunshine. After back to back games of zero TDs, fantasy managers may rightly be wary of rostering Jones, but Sunday’s game in Miami currently has the third highest Over/Under of the week. Miami have surrendered over 300 yards to opposing quarterbacks in consecutive games, so they can be beaten through the air. Expect Jones to regress to the norm this week and return good value at $5800.
