NFL DFS DraftKings Cash Picks: Week 15 (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 and the mechanics of it, make 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!

Patrick Mahomes $8,100
On the surface, it looks like a “bad” matchup for the QB and WRs going up against Houston, but that’s only because teams are having that much success against them this year running the ball. Their underlying metrics suggest they remain a bad secondary, ranking 28th in explosive pass rate and 31st in EPA per pass attempt allowed. We know the Chiefs want to lean on Mahomes’ right arm, ranking #1 in pass rate over expectation (PROE) this year. No QB has attempted more red zone or 10-zone passes this year than the MVP candidate. KC’s 31.5 team total is by far the highest on the slate.
