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 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.
Patrick Mahomes $8,400
If you want to spend up for safety on this slate, Patrick Mahomes finds himself in a dream scenario. He’s playing in a game with the total being bet up to 57.5 points, his Chiefs have a 31.5-point implied total against a Tennessee Titans secondary that’s down multiple starters including their first round pick Caleb Farley who tore his ACL on Monday night. The Titans rank 27th in pass defense DVOA and have given up the 7th most passing yards in the league. The Titans should have their hands full trying to keep up with Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman and Travis Kelce running loose in the secondary. Mahomes leads the league in passing TD and is averaging 314 pass yards per game, giving up a great chance to hit the 300-yard bonus on DraftKings.
