Best Week 2 daily fantasy football quarterback plays under $6000

We go over some of the best quarterbacks on DraftKings under $6,000 ahead of Week 2’s matchups.

You don’t always have to pay up at quarterback to be successful in DFS, and a few of the less expensive signal callers outplayed their price tags in Week 1. Finding the perfect value play can be key to winning GPPs, and we’ve identified some of the better options below $6000 on DraftKings here.

Kirk Cousins ($5,900), Minnesota Vikings vs. Indianapolis Colts

Cousins looked like a more ambitious than usual in Game 1. Minnesota looked to stretch the field against the Green Bay Packers and averaged 9.9 yards per pass attempt. Only the Baltimore Ravens average more yards per pass attempt so far this season. The Colts allowed Gardner Minshew II to throw three touchdowns passes on just 20 throws on Sunday, so Cousins could do more damage with higher passing volume.

Daniel Jones ($5,800), New York Giants vs. Chicago Bears

Jones had a solid performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers — one of the best defenses in the NFL — in Week 1 and threw for 249 passing yards and two touchdowns. The two interceptions he threw brought down his DKFP total, but the second year quarterback still has plenty of upside. Chicago has a middle-of-of-the road secondary and nearly gave up more the 300 passing yards to Matthew Stafford with Kenny Golladay out. A bounce back performance from Saquon Barkley as a pass catcher could set Jones over the top.

Jimmy Garoppolo ($5,700), San Francisco 49ers vs. New York Jets

Some might stray away from Garoppolo because of his depleted receiving corps. A large chunk of the 259 passing yards he totaled against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1 came on a 76-yard passing touchdown to Raheem Mostert, and without that play his stat line would have been modest at best. San Francisco signed Mohamed Sanu and could get Brandon Aiyuk back from injury in Week 2 against the Jets, who gave up 312 passing yards to Josh Allen on Sunday.
