Week 16 NFL Game-by-game breakdown for FanDuel and DraftKings

It's a strange week, with a lot of unknowns heading into the holiday weekend. We're hoping that teams and reporters are as sharp with reporting as usual, but that's certainly not clear at this point. For starters, a lot of viable DFS offenses are going up against tough defenses, and when you combine that with the fact that it's a shorter slate than usual the pickings are somewhat slim. The guys have their eye on the KC/ATL game, which should be a shootout that also has some injury implications. The potential absence of Julio Jones and/or Tyreek Hill could open up some serious DFS value. Some other great teams to target this week include Chicago and Houston, and after that there appears to be a significant fall off. There are a number of total stay-away teams, like the Jets, Jaguars, Bengals, Giants, and Broncos. There are teams with reasonable skill options with no consistent plan for getting them the ball in Philly, Dallas, and Carolina. The Rams/Seahawks has a high total, but the last two times these teams met it amounted to precious little fantasy production.

Week 16 Cash Game Plays for FanDuel and DraftKings

There are a lot of interesting questions for cash games this week, starting at quarterback. Can we start Jalen Hurts after two good weeks, or should we be concerned about the low completion percentage? Would Deshaun Watson just be a safer play at similar prices? Is it insane to go super-cheap at QB on DK and play Trubisky? The guys weigh the pros and cons of each. Running back features two easy plays in David Montgomery and Le'Veon Bell, but after that, there are a number of situations to keep an eye on. You've got the potential absence of Ezekiel Elliott, a bizarre QB situation in WAS (which impacts JD McKissic), and more. You'll want to tune in tomorrow for an in-depth look at the position on a game by game basis. Wide receiver has good plays at every price point, as usual, with headliners like Calvin Ridley and Tyreek Hill, mid-range options like Brandin Cooks and Jarvis Landry, and even some punt plays lurking in LA if Keenan Allen sits.

While there are a number of clear plays this week, there is no shortage of close calls. How do we pick between running backs coming off of big weeks, with a relatively short track record of that performance? How do we rank Jonathan Taylor, Miles Sanders, and even Alvin Kamara? Could we take a speculative look at JD McKissic? What about the Tampa Bay running back situation? After the obvious Derrick Henry and Cam Akers plays, things get hairy in a hurry. The guys also discuss how the perception of plays like Lamar Jackson and Kyler Murray is changing. Can we trust either given that their carries seem to be headed back in the right direction or should we be more concerned with their larger body of work? They also discuss a number of lingering injury situations, a few surprise cheap options, and more! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Quarterback comes down to a decision between Lamar Jackson in the best possible match-up with the Jags, and a host of cheap guys in interesting match-ups. The guys discuss the pros and cons of paying up for a known commodity or trying to ride the upside of a cheaper option like Jalen Hurts. Running back features two obvious plays in Cam Akers and Derrick Henry, and a whole lot of question marks after that. Doug and James discuss a few of the other potential options while acknowledging that you might be waiting until later in the week to solidify a third running back. Wide receiver offers Brandon Aiyuk and Michael Thomas as a nice one-two punch at the top of the position, with a few cheap punt options to consider after that. Can we depend on the cheap Dolphins receivers if Parker misses this week? The guys discuss whether we've seen enough to think about it. Tight end basically comes down to Kelce or bust, with even the reasonable cheap options carrying question marks. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

As is typical in 2020, this week has gotten a lot more interesting as time has gone on. We have a number of wide receivers in Carolina headed to the COVID-IR, which has opened up some value there. Christian McCaffrey has been ruled out, which opens up Mike Davis as a value option. There are some core strategic discussions for this week as well. If we can only pay up at one spot, should we pick Davante Adams or Derrick Henry? Is it reasonable to run Devontae Booker out there again if Josh Jacobs were to miss another week? Can we really trust Aaron Jones in a great match-up with Detroit given that Jamal Williams is still lurking? And what do we make of running backs who could be poised for a lot of opportunity in potentially weird game scripts, like Myles Gaskin, James Robinson, or Dalvin Cook?

It's a weird week for DFS, with very little value to support paying up at some key positions. Doug and James break down how lineups might look different this week than usual. Can we consider going cheap with Jalen Hurts on DraftKings, or should we just pay up for a safer option like Russell Wilson? Running back is odd as well, with Derrick Henry being the obvious big money play and a bunch of question marks after that. We have James Robinson and Myles Gaskin, but both of them are 7+ point underdogs. Aaron Jones has a great projected game script, but he's likely in a timeshare once again. We're basically just hoping for value to crop up later in the week at this point. Wide receiver is the first position that presents us with exciting options, with both Michael Thomas and Brandon Aiyuk looking comically under-priced at this point. The position rounds out nicely with the Houston situation, and even Corey Davis is AJ Brown were to miss this week. At tight end, we're basically deciding between Travis Kelce, Mike Gesicki, and possibly Anthony Firkser. Right now it looks like our optimizer is prioritizing Kelce, but that could change as the week develops. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The NFL is nothing if not strange right now, with COVID causing us to have a tightened schedule for Sunday's games. As a result, we have a thinner slate than usual to draw our plays from. Quarterback presents some interesting options, all with their own flaws, with Russell Wilson, Justin Herbert, and Taysom Hill leading the pack for us right now. Running back has one automatic play in Austin Ekeler, and then several speculative options. Dalvin Cook will be highly owned if he gets a clean bill of health, but after that, we're monitoring a number of situations to see if any cheap value springs loose. Wide receiver is probably the best value spot of the week, with Michael Thomas and Brandin Cooks being far too cheap for their current opportunity, and even guys like Keke Coutee if you want to go deep into punts. Tight end gives us decent midrange options in Hunter Henry and Evan Engram, and little else, so it looks like that position is fairly locked in right now. Learn more about your ad choices.

For a three-game slate, Thanksgiving presents us with a number of solid cash game options. We've got Watson holding it down at quarterback, Zeke and (hopefully) Swift at running back, and a number of reasonable receivers between Pittsburgh, Houston, and even Washington. We're keeping an eye on the Baltimore/Pittsburgh game to make sure it goes, of course, but it doesn't look like a bad slate all things considered. Sunday's slate is actually fairly robust as well, since there are no more byes for the rest of the season. We have two strong quarterback options in Josh Allen and Kyler Murray, with a little Taysom Hill if we wind up needing some savings on DraftKings. Running back is probably the most difficult position to break down at this point, with Salvon Ahmed being the only truly exciting option available at this point. We're hoping to be able to run Kalen Ballage, but we need to keep an eye on the potential Austin Ekeler return. Wide receiver is very deep this week, if a bit expensive. It will be tough to decide between Keenan Allen, Stefon Diggs, and Tyreek Hill - and it's going to be tough to pay for all three of them.

The DFSR crew is back to break down every game on the main slate of FanDuel and DraftKings for week 11. With Christian McCaffrey going down, it looks like Dalvin Cook and Davante Adams will be the default pay-up options in all formats. We don't believe that it opens up Mike Davis as an interesting cash game play, but he's a great big tournament play. The guys go through the long list of cheap running backs, discussing how you might prioritize each in various formats this week. And there are a lot of them, with Kalen Ballage, JD McKissic, Salvon Ahmed, Damien Harris, DeAndre Swift, Duke Johnson, and potentially Giovani Bernard being playable this week. That's a long list, but the guys believe there are some clearly better options than others. There are some other questions to answer this week as well. To what degree do we trust Jameis in cash games, and how does he impact the Saints' offense? How do we handle opportunity projections for teams that played in windy conditions last week?

James and Doug are back to take an early look at cash games in week 11 on FanDuel and DraftKings. Quarterback has a few options that we haven't considered much this season in Justin Herbert and Lamar Jackson. Herbert has had a surprisingly high floor this season, and has a great match-up with the terrible New York Jets. Jackson hasn't been the guy he was last season, but the upside is still there with him getting 10+ carries a game. The guys discuss the pros and cons of each. Running back presents a bevy of cheap options, and the difficulty this week is picking between them. DFSR feels like Ballage and McKissic are the best options, but people will certainly dabble with Harris, Ahmed, and even Duke Johnson. If you run two cheap guys, you're going to have room for a top tier play, and it will be tough to choose between McCaffrey and Cook. Wide receiver is actually fairly tough this week. Davante Adams is a great play (as usual), but can you afford him alongside McCaffrey or Cook? Thankfully there are some good cheap options, with each of the Steelers wide receivers looking good, Brandin Cooks in a bounceback, and others. Tight end is a disaster as always, and DFSR is leaning toward Hayden Hurst as a high floor way to get away from a bad position cheaply. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Things are certainly a little less certain heading into week 10 than they were in week 9, but we still have a lot to talk about heading into the weekend. There are a number of domino-effect situations, for starters. Which of the Seattle running backs is going to wind up playing, and will we know in time to set our lineups? Will Big Ben play against Cincinnati? What about the running back situations in Cleveland, Houston, and Washington? The list of situations to wade through is nearly endless this week. The most intriguing position this week seems to be wide receiver, where there is a slew of guys in the $5,500-$6,800 range that have similar recent production. The guys go game by game, constantly updating their list of which of these guys they prefer most.

James and Doug are back to take an early look at cash games for a much more sane week 10 on FanDuel and DraftKings. Quarterback is once again boiling down to finding the best high priced options, with Kyler Murray leading the DFSR pack so far. The guys go in-depth discussing whether you can consider Aaron Rodgers against Jacksonville, which could be a popular play this week as well. Running back is one big question mark at this point. If injuries break in a certain way, we have some phenomenal plays in Mike Davis, Duke Johnson, and Chase Edmonds. If they don't, we'll be left with a smattering of un-sexy midrange options. This position is a wait-and-see until later in the week. We'd really like to pay up at wide receiver this week, with Davante Adams headlining the week in a great match-up with the Jags. After Adams, we have two solid mid-range options in Cooper Kupp and Keenan Allen. If we can't pay up, there are discussions to be had about Terry McLaurin, Robby Anderson, or Sterling Shepard. Tight end is actually fairly clear this week, with Evan Engram looking like the best play unless Kenny Golladay misses another week, in which case TJ Hockenson would be in consideration once again.   Learn more about your ad choices.

There is a lot more clarity heading into week 9 than there was in week 8, but that doesn't necessarily make it an easier one. There are a lot of close decisions at every position. How do we decide between Russell Wilson or Patrick Mahomes? What do we do if we lose the Texans game to Covid? At running back there is a glut of guys that look awfully similar. Do we lean into David Johnson, or do we try and get greedy with a play like Antonio Gibson or David Montgomery? Or can we move in the other direction, paying up for James Conner? Wide receiver doesn't get any easier, with a lack of cheap options really pressuring our budget. There are a handful of fun mid-range options like Keenan Allen, Stefon Diggs, and Tyler Lockett, but we might not have the money left over to afford it. Can we instead look to Marvin Jones Jr., Brandin Cooks, or even Sterling Shepard? There are a lot of nuanced conversations this week, and this is not a podcast you're going to want to miss.

We have a lot of good options at quarterback this week, and it really comes down to fitting one into the price tier you're looking for. Whether it's Watson, Murray, or Herbert, it's going to be tough to feel too bad about where you land. Running back offers similar chalk options in Dalvin Cook and Chase Edmonds, but the potential third slot leaves something to be desired. The guys discuss the pros and cons of options like David Johnson and Antonio Gibson, while allowing for the possibility that a cheap play could come along and change things up considerably. Wide receiver has a few great options in Julio Jones and Brandin Cooks, with a lot of question marks around who goes in that third slot. Do we roll the dice on a cheap Detroit wide receiver, or bite the bullet and pay up elsewhere? Tight end basically comes down to a decision between paying up for Kelce or punting to a risky, touchdown-dependent option. The best of those appears to be TJ Hockenson given Golladay's absence, but the guys throw out other names like Noah Fant or Evan Engram as well. Learn more about your ad choices.

With a number of pieces of potential injury news still outstanding, this podcast contains a lot of "if this, then that" scenarios. The trickle-down effects of certain injuries are just enormous. To cherry-pick one example: if Michael Thomas sits, Alvin Kamara likely becomes the best running back play, but there also become solid cheap WR options in Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway. Having this kind of savings means more expensive plays at other positions become more relevant. If Emmanuel Sanders returns from the Covid IR, however, these plays become less relevant. And this is just an example of one team! There's a similar situation in Seattle, where both Carson and Hyde have questionable tags early in the week. This week is so nuanced that you're just going to have to hear the discussion in order to really wrap your mind around it. Be sure to keep an eye out for DFSR's injury article later in the week, since this week more than any other so far this season really requires you to have your finger on the pulse of multiple injury situations. There are other exciting possibilities to dream about this week as well. Could Tua explode onto the DFS scene? Should we be excited to run it back with Gio Bernard or Jamaal Williams, or has their price come up too much? The DFSR team discusses all this, and more. Learn more about your ad choices.

There are a number of unknown factors that make it impossible to fully project what cash game lineups will look like for week 8, but there is still quite a bit to talk about here. Quarterback looks like it's going to come down to a decision between Russell Wilson and some cheap options in Ryan Tannehill and Derek Carr. If we wind up getting cheap options at other plays (like running back) we will wind up paying up. If we don't, we might need to go cheaper this week. Running back could go in any number of directions this week. Can we afford Derrick Henry? Perhaps, if we can get punt plays like Carlos Hyde going this week. There are several known question marks this week, with the status of Joe Mixon, Dalvin Cook, Aaron Jones, Chris Carson, and even Carlos Hyde up in the air. This is a position we'll need to revisit later in the week. Wide receiver has its own interesting discussions. What do we make of Tyler Lockett's 20 target week? How about Davante Adams' return to greatness? Can we roll it back with Marquez Callaway if Michael Thomas misses another game? Is Keenan Allen an easy play in spite of his ongoing touchdown issues? The guys break all this down, and more. Tight end is a mess, as usual, and we're hoping to be able to pay up for George Kittle.

DFSR's James Davis and Doug Norrie are back to discuss every game on the main slate of NFL DFS games on FanDuel and DraftKings. While some positions are looking chalky, there are a number of interesting tidbits to discuss this week. The greatest discussion centers around the running back options this week. Each of the big-ticket guys has their own question marks - whether it's Zeke's terrible week 6, Alvin Kamara's role with the return of Michael Thomas, or Derrick Henry's tough match-up with Pittsburgh, things are looking fairly difficult. We also have some potentially intriguing mid-range options, with Clyde Edwards-Helaire far too cheap if Le'Veon Bell doesn't arrive, Kareem Hunt back in a good situation, and Joe Mixon potentially missing this one. There are also cheap plays people could target, like Kenyan Drake or DeAndre Swift. For big tournaments, it seems like we could go in any number of directions. Wide receiver has plenty of questions of its own. Should we be thinking about expensive options in big tournaments, even if we can't play them in cash? We might have buy low opportunities on Davante Adams or DeAndre Hopkins, for instance. There are also some guys whose stock might be too expensive. Can we go back to the Julio Jones well after one big week? Can we keep buying on the way up for guys like Chase Claypool or DK Metcalf, whose prices are on the rise based mostly on touchdown equity?

Doug and James return with an early look at cash games for week 7. While we aren't staring down the barrel of a lot of obvious uncertainty this week, there is still plenty to think about. Quarterback is looking moderately straightforward, with Deshaun Watson getting cheaper while continuing to perform at a top level. On DraftKings the DFSR system is picking out some cheaper options, with Joe Burrow surfacing as an interesting option against the Browns this week. Running back is where the real questions start to surface, with the system wanting to play an expensive option, but not knowing which one. Kamara would be a great play if Thomas sits, but Thomas might return. Zeke would be a top option if he were guaranteed all the carries, but he got benched last week after having fumbling issues. Henry would be the best guy if his match-up were better, but he's going up against a meat grinder in the Steelers. And there are a plethora of mid-range options that look similar as well. Wide receiver continues to be where we're finding value, with Keenan Allen looking like a must play now that he's fully healthy again. The guys also discuss cheaper options like Brandin Cooks, Robby Anderson, and Jamison Crowder - breaking down the respective pros and cons of each. Tight end is a conundrum this week. If everyone is healthy, George Kittle might be a must-play even at a moderately high price tag. If opportunity opens up for Darren Fells or Anthony Firkser, either could be cash game viable this week as well. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

It's difficult to do a game by game breakdown when some games might not even play this week (I'm looking at you, Atlanta-Minnesota), but here we are. With 4 teams on byes, a few games that are totally irrelevant for DFS purposes, and not a whole lot of intriguing injuries, this will be one of the more challenging weeks in recent memory. "Safety" might not be a word that applies to this slate when it's all said and done, so it could be more about trying to capture upside while grabbing safety where you can. That said, it will be more important than ever to get the fine details as correct as possible. Is this a game script where we could see James Conner return to a great share of the carries? Can we trust any Titans at all on record low rest after a Tuesday night game? How much should we be weighing match-ups this week? Is Detroit's incredible match-up with the Jags enough to vault them into lineups? And likewise, do guys like Joe Mixon or Kareem Hunt have such bad match-ups that we need to cross them off?

On FanDuel, quarterback has one clear leader of the pack in DeShaun Watson. On DraftKings, the guys discuss potentially chasing some cheaper options in Ryan Fitzpatrick or Matthew Stafford. It's a very short main slate, and the savings might matter more than ever.

Or are we better off playing it safe with the likes of Mike Davis and James Conner? There's a lot to discuss there. Wide receiver poses challenges of its own. The guys were bullish on Terry McLaurin in the cash game podcast yesterday, but with Kyle Allen taking over as his QB do they feel the same way? Will the change in coaching staff in Houston be good or bad for the Texans' offense in the near term? What on Earth can we make of the Falcons' receiving corps after what we saw last week?

Week 5 is here, and Doug and James are back to break down their cash game plays on DraftKings and FanDuel. With the league swirling with uncertainty surrounding Covid-19, we should understand that these are preliminary looks at cash game selections. That being said, we do have a number of good options this week. Quarterback looks to be a position we are going to pay up at again, with the usual suspects all looking like great plays in good match-ups. The guys discuss whether we can trust Dak's production given the wild game scripts the Cowboys have played, whether we can take a little savings and play Deshaun Watson, or even turn to Teddy Bridgewater on DraftKings. Running back features a few interesting cheaper options in Mike Davis, Kareem Hunt, and Jerick McKinnon, with some nice expensive options in Ezekiel Elliott and Derrick Henry (if the Titans play, of course). Wide receiver was more of a mixed bag, with Amari Cooper ($7,800 on FD) being the only expensive wide receiver entering into consideration. It looks like another week where we'll fill out our cash game rosters with cheaper or midrange options like Robby Anderson or Terry McLaurin. Tight end looks to be a one man show this week, with George Kittle feeling a heck of a lot safer than the rest of the cheaper options. There's a chance we pivot to Jonnu Smith if the Titans actually play, but for now it looks like the rare week where we'll be paying up at tight end. Learn more about your ad choices.

With Henry getting bumped off the main slate and Michael Thomas potentially returning to cut into Alvin Kamara's targets, running back is starting to look pretty thin all of a sudden. Do we spend all the way up for Zeke? Can we get by with Josh Jacobs as an underdog against the Bills? What about some cheaper options in good match-ups, like Joe Mixon, or Darrell Henderson Jr.? It's never fun to have big question marks at running back, and the guys wade through the options in each game. Wide receiver offers us a ton of value across the board, with excellent high priced options like DeAndre Hopkins, all the way down to great cheap options like Will Fuller V or Tyler Boyd. Heck, we even have a well fleshed out mid range of wide receiver options with the resurgence of Keenan Allen and Allen Robinson. For that reason we'll likely be filling our wide receiver slot last based on where we need to pay up elsewhere.

While there is less obvious value heading into this week, things are taking a pretty clear direction early on. The guys agree that you're likely going to want to pay up at quarterback this week, picking between names Kyler Murray, Dak Prescott, and Russell Wilson. Running back is going to look a lot different this week as well with fewer obvious cheap value options this week. DFSR is looking to lean on high usage guys like Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Derrick Henry, while trying to find some cheap targets from Mike Davis. Since we're spending up heavily at running back and quarterback we'll likely middle out wide receiver with high target value options like Tyler Lockett, Amari Cooper, and even a resurgent Keenan Allen.

Doug and James get their heads together for their exhaustive game by game breakdown for the week 3 main slate on FanDuel and DraftKings. It's hard to remember a week more influenced by injuries, with big names across every position missing this week or done for the season. Not all punt plays are created equally, however, and the guys discuss the differences between grabbing back-ups for the Panthers, both New York teams, the 49ers, and more. Meanwhile, there are a number of wide receivers in new situations that we need to adjust. James and Doug talk about how they are readjusting their priors on guys like Stefon Diggs, DeAndre Hopkins, Mike Evans, and the various rookie wide receivers. They also discuss a few interesting betting plays. All in all, this is not a podcast you want to miss. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Week 3 is a strange one for cash games, mostly because the plays seem very straight forward. A slew of running back injuries has left us with too many great punt options to choose from, with Jonathan Taylor, Jerick McKinnon, and Mike Davis all looking like great cash game options. When we have that much money left over we're basically just picking between big name stars at other positions. The guys discuss the choice between Cam Newton and Kyler Murray at quarterback, where it looks like site based pricing might be a deciding factor. Wide receiver lends itself to some interesting considerations as well, with the primary discussion trending around how much we can trust two weeks of stats this year versus stats from last year. Is Diontae Johnson the real deal? Can we expect Calvin Ridley to shoulder most of the targets in Atlanta? There is a lot to discuss. Finally the guys wrap things up at tight end, where we might have the luxury of paying up at tight end for the first (and perhaps last) time this season. Learn more about your ad choices.

The DFSR team is back with their cash game picks for week two of NFL DFS on FanDuel and DraftKings. It's a nice and full main slate of games with plenty of great options at every position, so this week looks like one where we're trying to find the cream of the crop rather than settling for merely good plays. Except for tight end. Screw tight end. The guys agree that Kyler Murray is the chalk QB option out of the gate, but nod to a few other options that are at least worth consideration. At running back there are two excellent $8,000+ options in Derrick Henry and Clyde Edwards-Helaire, with some cheap options to fill things out. Wide receiver is very deep, with great options across multiple price points. The big question there will surround where we want to allocate our funds.

The DFSR team is back with a DFS NFL cash game podcast for week 1! It looks like this NFL season is actually going to happen, so we might as well go ahead and make some money off of it. Things start at quarterback, where Doug and James debate the merits of paying up for Lamar Jackson vs. finding safety with a cheaper option. If you do fade Jackson, how cheap can you go? They discuss Russell Wilson, Carson Wentz, and Teddy Bridgewater. Running back for week 1 is looking very difficult, with Christian McCaffrey standing out as one of the only truly safe points per dollar options. The guys discuss a few young running backs from last season that are looking to take over the reins full time, and agree that it's looking like a tough position in general. There are a good handful of cheap wide receivers out there, though, with the DFSR lineup optimizer projecting a lot of targets for guys like Jarvis Landry, Tyler Lockett, DeSean Jackson, and more.

Wild card weekend is here, and the DFSR team has you covered with all you need to know for FanDuel and DraftKings this weekend. James and Doug break each game down in terms of its relevant DFS plays and injury news, emphasizing the difference between playing the single day slates and the full weekend slates. Saturday's slate is a weird one that features a lot of tough defenses, and a truly bad DFS offense in the Patriots. At the end of the day it might come down to trying to find good playable options at every position rather than forming a typical "stars and scrubs" lineup we get used to during the regular season. Can you pay up for Derrick Henry? Which of the QB-WR pairs look the safest for cash games? Doug and James break it all down. Sunday's slate features more conventional great DFS plays, with the Saints' big two in Kamara and Thomas serving as headliners. It also has some nice cheap options availing themselves thanks to Chris Carson being ruled out and the Eagles dealing with a number of skill position injuries. You're going to have to monitor this situation very closely, though, because if you leave yourself in a position with questionable players leading into the 4:35pm game you could have very little flexibility in terms of making your swaps.

Quarterback sees some familiar names this week, with Lamar Jackson looking like the obvious headliner in a solid spot against the Browns. On DraftKings there is a tempting Andy Dalton play looming, as a $5,200 price tag is looking awfully cheap when considering Dalton will take on the league's worst defense. Running back offers some fun decisions this week. Should we pay up for Zeke, or Saquon Barkley? Is it finally time to run Joe Mixon in cash games against the league's worst rushing defense? Was Miles Sanders' explosion last week legit, or should we expect regression? The guys break it all down. Wide receiver features a number of different possible directions one could go. Do we pay up for Michael Thomas, or save $1,000 and go down to Julio Jones, who had 20 targets against the 49ers last week? Can we roll it back with DJ Moore? What do we make of Greg Ward's 9 targets in each of the last two weeks? Tight end pretty much boils down to picking between Ertz and Waller on the main slate, and the guys agree that Ertz seems like the clear play given that you only have to pay a little bit more for him.

Doug and James are back with their cash game selections for week 15 in NFL DFS.  With fewer and fewer teams left with anything to play for, things start getting a little dicey for NFL cash games, but that doesn't mean we can't find value here. DFSR is settling into some potentially expensive quarterbacks this week, with Dak being the current leader in the clubhouse. The guys talk about how to put tough recent games into context, and discuss how no matter who you wind up playing you're going to have to make some concessions. Running back appears to be a little more straightforward this week. McCaffrey still got plenty of usage in a tough game for the Panthers last week, and there is plenty of savings to go around to help you afford him. The reigns were finally taken off Todd Gurley last week, and if he returns to last year's opportunity he's absolutely a steal. Running back also has a lot of potential punts this week, from Patrick Laird, to DeAndre Washington, and potentially Dion Lewis. Wide Receiver is rounding into form early this week, with Mike Evans' absence clearing the way for both the best big money wide receiver in Godwin and the best cheap receiver in Justin Watson. After those two guys there are a lot of mid-range options, with Julian Edelman leading the pack. Tight end has two solid options in Tyler Higbee and Zach Ertz, either of which should be fine depending on how much salary you have left over.

James and Doug are back with their cash game article for week 14 of NFL DFS on FanDuel and DraftKings. Quarterback is looking pretty straightforward this week, with Lamar Jackson standing head and shoulders above the field in terms of both raw points and points per dollar projection. Gardner Minshew makes an interesting super cheap pivot on DraftKings, but Jackson is looking like the type of payoff you might not want to punt away from. Running back presents some fairly lackluster options, with Leonard Fournette leading the pack after he had huge opportunity even in a tough match-up with Tampa Bay. Right now DFSR is leaning toward Devonta Freeman after his huge opportunity last week, and Le'Veon Bell in a great spot against Miami. Wide receiver features some great mid-range value in DJ Moore, who's under-priced on a weekly basis, and Julian Edelman and his 10+ targets per game in the Patriots' struggling offense. Tyler Boyd rounds out the good value options, though AJ Green's potential return muddies the waters. Tight end looks like a pretty easy Jack Doyle play, with the more expensive options not really returning you more safety.

DFS NFL Podcast - Week 13 Thanksgiving Day Slate for FanDuel and DraftKings 11/27/19

James and Doug are here to bring you a comprehensive breakdown of the Thanksgiving NFL slate on DraftKings and FanDuel! While the games themselves don't offer a lot of intrigue, there's a lot to think about for DFS purposes. The Bears/Lions game is probably the least relevant DFS game, but it's not one you can ignore. If Jeff Driskel's hamstring issue winds up being no big deal, he is certainly an interesting option if you can count on his ground game. Bo Scarbrough and Tarik Cohen might need to be on your list of playable options as well, with Marvin Jones Jr. and Kenny Golladay garnering some consideration as well. The Cowboys and Bills game sees a few more interesting plays, with Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott looking like likely Thanksgiving Day chalk. The plays don't stop there, though, since Michael Gallup and John Brown are in the sweet spot for wide receiver pricing this week. The Falcons/Saints game brings us a lot of plays as well. The Falcons' passing game was highly owned on a full slate last week, and even in a worse match-up this week the small slate likely makes up the difference. Expect big ownership for Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, and Matt Ryan once again. On the Saints side Brees and Thomas look too expensive to fit into reasonable lineups, but Alvin Kamara and Jared Cook could be unanimous plays.
