Locked-In Cash Play of the Week
For a full breakdown: FanDuel Cash Picks / DraftKings Cash Picks
- Borg– At QB this week, I went back-and-forth between Kyler Murray and Jalen Hurts but I’ve landed with a guy who averaged 68 rushing yards per game in his four starts last year. The matchup against Atlanta is too juicy as they gave up the most passing yards, most QB fantasy points, and most WR fantasy points in 2020. Use Taysom Hill as the template. In two games versus Atlanta, he had 84 combined rushing yards, two rushing TDs, and finishes of QB4 & QB8. The floor is high and the salary on DraftKings ($6,400) is a great discount from Kyler.
- Betz– Dalvin Cook is one of only a handful of three-down backs we can project for 20+ touches, and the matchup with the Bengals couldn’t be more perfect. I expect Minnesota to win this one-handedly, keeping Cook in positive game scripts against a defense that allowed the 4th most rushing yards per game last year.
