Week 16 Pick’Em Selections on DraftKings
These picks are for the Early Only slate as it is the only slate being offered by DraftKings at this time.
GPP: Alvin Kamara vs. Atlanta
The rookie sensation returned to action after being cleared from concussion protocol and picked up right where he left off, seeing 19 opportunities and turning them into 89 total yards and a TD. Now, Alvin Kamara gets to play at home in a very favorable fantasy game with a current Over/Under of 53 points. And he has a good matchup against a Falcons defense that ranks third-worst in run DVOA and that has allowed the tenth most rushing yards per game over the past five weeks. Oh ya, the Falcons struggle to cover pass-catching RBs out of the backfield as well. Kamara has blowup potential in this spot.
Cash: Todd Gurley at Tennessee
Todd Gurley is worth the price of admission. What a season he’s having. He ranks third in the league in rush attempts and has seen an additional 74 targets in the passing game as well. Guaranteed volume, elite talent, and a very good offense are a phenomenal combination for a cash game RB and that’s exactly what we have with Gurley. And his matchup against Tennessee isn’t overly concerning as the Titans rank just middle of the pack in run DVOA.
