DraftKings Week 5 Lineup Recommendations
By Ben Rolfe
Which players can help us make money in Week 5?
We are now over a quarter of the way through the 2019 regular season. That means a couple of things. Firstly, its time for some London football! Secondly, we now have a really solid idea of where we can find value, and who is basically a must-use option regardless of price. This week we have six games with a projected total over 45, but we also have the game between the Bills and Titans with a line of just 38.
