NFL DFS DraftKings Cash Picks: Week 7 (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!

Patrick Mahomes $8,300 vs. LAC
I won’t fault anyone for spending up for safety on this slate given that we should have some nice value options at the RB, WR and TE positions. Mahomes and the Chiefs return home for a matchup against a Chargers pass defense that’s been shredded this season. Allowing QBs to average 7.7 yards per pass attempt (31st), the Bolts secondary ranks 30th in EPA per pass attempt while allowing the most DraftKings points per game to opposing QBs. With KC expected to lead the slate in scoring according to implied team totals, Mahomes represents safety at the QB position for those looking to save money elsewhere.
