Locked-In Cash Plays

DraftKings Cash Picks / FanDuel Cash Picks

  • Borg– I can’t imagine building a lineup without Chris Godwin this week on DraftKings. His salary is absurd and his history against my Atlanta Falcons is over-the-top good. Since 2018, he’s averaging 6.7 receptions, 104 receiving yards per game, and 1.3 TDs. The Bucs should roll at home.
  • Betz– The Bucs are easily the top plays on the slate, and I’m with Borg that I love Godwin. I’ll throw in Tom Brady and Leonard Fournette as two additional Bucs you can consider priority cash plays. I probably wouldn’t play all three together in the same lineup, but if you want to stack up TB12 and Godwin or play Len and Godwin together and spend up for Josh Allen, I think that’s totally fine on this slate. Tampa’s team total at 28.0 is the second highest on the slate.
