Each week we will review some of the content found in the DFS Pass and discuss some of our most confident plays heading into Sunday. A lot can change over the weekend, especially with injury news (See Betz’s Injury Blitz podcast) and roster percentages shifting who is in or out before roster lock time. Let’s review.
- Locked-in Cash Plays
- CORE Plays
- Game Stacks We Love

- Boldest Calls of the Week
Locked-In Cash Plays
Borg – I’m paying up for the best RB on the planet, period. Correction, Christian McCaffrey is not from this planet. The workload, consistency, the highest team implied total on the slate… yeah he’s in and ranked as my RB1 even factoring in salary.
Betz– CMC and Zack Moss are the combo this week at the RB position. Moss failed last week relative to expectation, which is kind of a good thing for us in DFS. Neither site raised his price enough for his role. The dude handled every single RB carry a week ago with seven attempts inside the 10-yard line. Now, he gets a good spot against a vulnerable Cincy defense. You can play both of these backs together and give yourself the chance at 45+ combined touches between this duo.
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.
Fields versus Purdy is the main cash conversation for us. Purdy feels so safe and is a bit cheaper if you need the $300. However, Fields’ historic rushing numbers against Detroit are looming in the back of our minds. No one wants to get buried by a player with 35+ point upside. In tournaments, we really like leaning into Allen or Mahomes at lower-than-normal roster percentages.
