DraftKings Core Plays

These are the 3-5 players at each position we have mixed in our cash player pool. Based on salaries, late news, and budget constraints, it is guaranteed you will not be able to fit in all of them. But their high floors and team-implied totals make them great plays for the week in both cash & GPPs.

These are simply in order of favorite core players. You obviously won’t be able to fit all in a cash lineup and there are salary tradeoffs for paying up at each position.

1 Brock Purdy Brock Purdy
2 Lamar Jackson Lamar Jackson
3 Patrick Mahomes Patrick Mahomes
4 Jared Goff Jared Goff

With only four QBs on the slate, there isn’t a slam dunk play this week, and if you’re running 150 lineups or a 20-max set, it makes sense to have exposure to all four. However, if you’re only playing a handful of lineups, we love leaning into Purdy and the Niners’ 29 point implied team total against one of the league’s worst pass defenses. In GPPs, Lamar makes a ton of sense if you want to chase the QB that has the highest ceiling due to his ability to run the football.
