NFL DFS DraftKings Cash Picks: Week 1 (Fantasy Football)
NFL DFS cash games are all about building a high-floor lineup that can win in head-to-heads, 50/50s, and double-ups. Each week I’ll highlight my favorite cash game picks that I have some confidence heading into the weekend to put into my player pools.
For more on cash game strategy, be sure you listen to our DFS Cash Overview episode. Be sure you’re also subscribed to the DFS Podcast where Kyle and I go through the main slate every Friday and recap each slate on Tuesdays. Let’s get after it!

Justin Herbert $6,900 vs. MIA
The Chargers and Miami game projects as the best game environment on the slate with serious shootout appeal. I’d recommend reading Kyle’s Pace of Play article for more on that. LA is tied with the Ravens for the highest team total on the Main Slate for Week 1, and all of Herbert’s guys are healthy. We know Kellen Moore wants to play fast and throw often, and Miami’s secondary is down Jalen Ramsey thanks to a training camp knee injury. It’s worth pointing out that no QB has a higher passing yardage prop on sportsbooks in Week 1 than Justin Herbert (295.5 yards).
