Week 2 Main Slate Podcast

Locked-In Cash Plays

DraftKings Cash Picks / FanDuel Cash Picks

Borg – I cannot for the life of me move off Ja’Marr Chase this week. On both sites, he is underpriced based on his role, his volume, and his undeniable weekly ceiling to break a slate. His splits against the Ravens are legendary as I’ve mentioned all week and without Tyreek Hill or Justin Jefferson on the slate, he looks prime to be a difference-maker.

Betz – Is Joshua Kelley particularly good at football? I’m not so sure! But, he is just $5K, and Austin Ekeler (ankle) is doubtful. Kelley got 17 total opportunities with Ekeler in the game last week, and this coaching staff has shown absolutely zero interest in giving touches to Isaiah Spiller since he entered the NFL, and the only other active RB on the roster as of this writing is a UDFA in Elijah Dotson. I know the matchup is brutal against a stout Tennessee front, but the volume should be there, and more importantly, Kelley’s price unlocks the studs on the slate.

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.

There’s a lot of good QB plays on this slate, but for us, it comes down to two options: pay up for Josh Allen or drop down to Anthony Richardson in the mid-range. We absolutely love this get right spot at home for Allen and the Bills offense, but Richardson is totally fine if you can’t find the money to get up to the Stallion. A Rich led all QBs in designed rush attempts a week ago and the Colts were #1 in pace.
