Locked-In Cash Plays
- Borg– Call it a narrative or whatever you want but Chris Godwin is locked in my cash lineup on both DK & FD this week. Tom’s T-Shirt and the QB/WR Swag model aside, he’s due after seeing 55(!) targets on the year but failing to visit the end-zone. The Rams are the zone-heaviest team in the NFL and Godwin eats up that type of coverage. His price, his role in the offense, and the Buccaneers’ desire to throw over and over again make him an easy cash pick for me.
- Betz– I’m locking Austin Ekeler in my cash lineup this week. The Chargers have virtually no talent available in their pass catching core (And now DeAndre Carter is questionable, too!), making Ekeler a candidate to catch 8+ balls against the woeful Falcons. He’s the first player I’m plugging into my lineup.
DraftKings Core Plays
These are the 3-5 players at each position we have mixed in our player pools. Based on salaries, late news, and budget constraints, it’s not a guarantee we 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.
