Locked-In Cash Plays
Borg – You just don’t gain anything in 50/50 & H2H formats ignoring Zack Moss. Do you remember the last time we saw “Zack Boss” against the Titans? Week 5 when he went 23/165/2 on the ground as THE RB2 on the week. That type of outcome is probably way too high to expect but 18+ opportunities feels right. Shane Steichen strongly suggested that “Zack Moss will get the overwhelming majority of the carries as he did early in the season”. If your cash lineup fails this week, it will not be because of Moss regardless of what he does. You can expect 75+ percent of the field to play him. Heck, it might be the obvious play of the year. He could hit 90% in Double-Ups. In tourneys, it is a much more nuanced question as Justin Freeman proposes:
If I tell you Zack Moss scores exactly 16 points this week, how much exposure do you want to him at $4,600?

Betz – Thanks to the freebie play of the week in Zack Moss and his cheap salary, it’s easy to fit Tyreek Hill despite his $9,600 on DK. The Commanders’ defense is among the league’s worst in football, and now they have to figure out how to contain this Dolphins offense. Yikes…
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.
Purdy is our guy thanks to the elevated pass rate against Philly. His efficiency is world class ranking #1 in Yards per Attempt and EPA per pass attempt but now we could see more volume. Russell Wilson is interesting this week if you need to drop down a bit further but he’s had only one true ceiling game this year. If you are paying up, Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa in GPPs are our preferred guys.
