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.
Tua Tagovailoa $5,700
If you want to save some salary this week at QB, I don’t mind dropping down to Tua with the Dolphins taking on the Jets. The ‘Phins quietly have a 25.5 implied team total according to Vegas, and over his last seven games, Tagovailoa is completing a ridiculous 73% of his passes while averaging about 21 DraftKings points per game. With DeVante Parker back in the lineup and Mike Gesicki doing his thing out of the slot, Tua’s got the weapons to support a successful fantasy day against a Jets defense that ranks dead last in yards per play allowed.
Dak Prescott $6,500
Over his last six games, Dak is averaging nearly 40 pass attempts per game and that trend is likely to continue after Corey Clement (yes, that’s right) carried the ball more than Ezekiel Elliott last week in Washington. Zeke appears he’s still not 100%, and Tony Pollard is still battling his plantar fascia injury. That should lead to Dallas focusing more on their passing attack, and the Giants just got roasted for 8.9 yards per attempt, 275 yards and 3 TD last week by Justin Herbert and the Chargers. The Giants are also down multiple starters in the secondary this week due to Covid protocols.
