NFL DFS DraftKings Cash Picks: Week 17 (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!
*Note: Plays listed below are in order of salary, NOT necessarily ranked by preferred plays. I’ll be updating this article from Friday – Sunday pending any news, so be sure to check back prior to lock!
Jared Goff $5,600
Goff and the Lions take on the Bears at home in a game that features the highest total on the slate with Vegas projecting Detroit to score as many points as Pat Mahomes and the Chiefs. Both the Lions and the Chiefs are tied for the slate’s highest team total at 29 points, making Goff a strong cash game play at a very friendly price point. At home this year, Goff is averaging 277 passing yards and 2.5 TDs per game and now catches a Bears defense that ranks 29th in EPA per pass attempt and 32nd in EPA per play over the last six weeks. In that same sample, Chicago has allowed the third-most total yards per game. Look for the Lions to have success moving the ball at home with motivation to win – they’re still mathematically alive in the playoff hunt.
