Locked-In Cash Plays

DraftKings Picks / FanDuel Picks

Borg – I can’t imagine creating a cash lineup without Christian McCaffrey this week on DraftKings. He’s a 100+ yard machine and this is his cheapest tag since the 1st week of November… of 2021. That was after he came back from five weeks off due to injury. He’s easily the top RB value and he’s the type of player where you just completely ignore the matchup.

Betz – Ja’Marr Chase is my top-ranked WR play on the slate and when you consider how cheap he is relative to the rest of the season, you can conceivably jam him in with no problem.

DraftKings Core Plays

These are the 3-5 players at each position I have mixed in my player pool. Based on salaries, late news, and budget constraints, it’s not a guarantee I 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.

In cash games, we love the three guys at the top of the board this week. All three are awesome plays and have big-time ceilings on this slate. They’ll all be popular in tournaments, so just be mindful of that. We think it’ll be tough for the lower-priced options to beat one of those three studs on this slate.
