Locked-In Cash Plays

DraftKings Cash Picks / FanDuel Cash Picks

Borg– I’m so glad I got to write in our best plays first. Take that Betz! This ain’t rocket science. Derrick Henry is going to get fed. In his last four games versus the Texans, he’s essentially erased them off the face of the planet: 211 & 3, 212 & 3, 250 & 2, 219 & 2. Is that good enough for ya? The Titans are committed to the run with Ryan Tannehill likely out. In two Malik Willis starts (Week 8 vs HOU & Week 9 @ KC), the Titans threw 35% of the time! It’s all Henry.

BetzChristian McCaffrey‘s role is outrageous. No 49er has seen more targets since Brock Purdy took over, and we know he’s a great bet for 15+ carries in addition to this outrageous pass catching role. McCaffrey touched the ball 32 times and played 89% of the snaps in Week 15, and Deebo Samuel remains out. His game is built for DraftKings’ full PPR scoring.

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, in Gardner we trust! At $4,800, you’re hoping for 15+ points and the Dallas defense is out three key starters including two corners. The weapons are elite and the game is one of the few indoors. We love Daniel Jones‘ value in both and GPPs. But in tournaments, the roster percentages will be spread out with the other QBs.
