NFL DFS DraftKings Cash Picks: Week 16 (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!

Daniel Jones $5,600
Most of the games on this slate have some weather concerns – the MIN/NYG game does not. Jones is playing in a dome against a Vikings pass funnel defense that’s been vulnerable all season. The Vikings are 2nd in run stopping grade while ranking 22nd in coverage grade per PFF, and since Week 10, Minnesota is facing the 6th highest pass rate in the league. The Vikings have allowed the second-highest yards per attempt and the second-most total passing yards in the league. In addition to Jones’ great matchup through the air, we know he’s also a good bet to pad the stat line with his legs, averaging 42 rushing yards per game this season.
