Cash Game Locks
Kirk Cousins vs. New Orleans
Cousins is the obvious cash game QB play this week playing at home against a Saints defense that ranks 28th in passing yards allowed per game and 30th in Pass DVOA. Cousins has been a solid real life and fantasy QB for years now and this season has been no different. Cousins ranks third in attempts per game (43.3), seventh in passing yards per game (308.9), and tied for seventh in TD passes (14).
Adam Thielen vs. New Orleans
Thielen has gone over 100 receiving yards in all seven games so far this season. He’s on an absolute tear and simply cannot be faded in cash. Thielen ranks first in the league in targets per game (12.7), receptions (67), and receiving yards (822). His matchup couldn’t be better this week at home against a Saints defense that ranks 28th in passing yards allowed per game and 30th in Pass DVOA.
