NFL DFS FanDuel Cash Picks: Week 5 (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.
Note: Remember on FD the pricing for QBs is bunched together so seemingly “expensive” players are not relative to other options. I personally like paying up for QBs on this site and which prizes rushing QBs even more than on DK.
Josh Allen vs PIT- $9000
Don’t overthink this. Allen ranks #1 EPA per pass attempt, pass success rate, and he’s finished as the QB2, 5, 3, and 4 so far. Only one number is missing from that equation. The Bills have all but abandoned the run ranking #1 in pass rate over expectation. With the highest team implied total (30) of the week, the Bills should roll. Since 2000, 90% of teams as 14+ point favorites won outright.
