NFL DFS FanDuel Cash Picks for Week 16 (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 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.
Patrick Mahomes vs SEA- $9200
The best QB on the planet with the highest team-implied total (29) on the slate. The Chiefs rank #1 in pass rate over expectation, passing yards per game, and EPA per pass attempt. Mahomes is averaging 310 & 2.6 passing TDs in games below freezing at home in his career. In other words, lean into this passing attack if your lineup construction allows it this weekend. He’s not popping in points per dollar as much as other QBs due to their price discrepancies.
