NFL DFS FanDuel Cash Picks for Week 14 (Fantasy Football)
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. On the Fantasy Footballers DFS & Betting Podcast, Betz and myself will dive into a couple of these but this article is intended for DFS Pass subscribers to get the full lay of the land.
Brock Purdy vs. SEA- $8100
He’s the favorite for league MVP, #1 in Expected Points per Pass Attempt, and the 2nd highest yards per attempt (9.6) of all time. The 49ers just put up 31 points against Seattle on Thanksgiving and they have the highest team-implied total (28.8) on the slate. Leaning into Purdy and the passing game is probably one of the easiest decisions on this slate.
Justin Fields vs. DET- $7900
Fields is one of the biggest positive regression candidates for the QB position. Over the last month, he ranks #1 in Expected Fantasy Points at the QB Position according to our own Marvin Elequin’s Exp. Points Model. However, he’s produced just 15.9 fantasy points per game nearly 6.5 pts below expectation. The weather might not cooperate BUT Fields as a runner has destroyed the Lions. His last three games against them on the ground: 18-for-104, 10-for-132, and 13-for-147 & two rushing TDs! Detroit ranks 29th in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs.
