DFS Cash Game Breakdown 2020 Week 12

Cam Newton, NE

If you’re looking to pay down a little at quarterback, Newton is the obvious choice. He has played in one fewer game than all relevant quarterbacks this year and is still top-five in rushing yards (341) and carries (83). His nine rushing scores trail only Kyler Murray. The two passers are squaring off this week in a game with a 50-point total. Newton’s rushing ability gives him one of the best weekly floors.




Josh Allen, BUF

Allen is top-10 in yards per attempt, yards per game, and touchdowns per game, all while adding 7.2 carries for 27.9 yards and .5 touchdowns per game on the ground. His matchup with Justin Herbert and the Chargers has a 53.5-point total. He is posting 1.1 fewer DraftKings points per game than Patrick Mahomes and costs $400 fewer.





Running Back




James Robinson, JAC

Win, lose, or draw, the Jaguars are going to feed Robinson. His worst game in terms of opportunities (targes plus carries) has been 16. He is averaging 20.3 touches for 101.1 yards from scrimmage and is no longer competing with Chris Thompson for receiving work. Robinson is one of the most-used backs in the league and that simply isn’t reflected in his price on DraftKings or Fanduel.




Salvon Ahmed, MIA

If Myles Gaskin does not return this week, Ahmed will be one of the cheapest three-down backs. He has been the lead-back for two weeks. Over those weeks, Ahmed has 33 carries and six receptions. The other backs in his backfield are at a combined six carries and one target.





Wide Receiver




Gabriel Davis, BUF

With studs like Keenan Allen and Dalvin Cook worth paying up for on the main slate, it’s going to be important to find values elsewhere. Davis is $3,000 on DraftKings and John Brown is trending toward being ruled out ahead of the Bills’ matchup with the Chargers. That puts Davis in a massive role on a successful offense for the minimum price.





Denzel Mims, NYJ

Mims isn’t quite as cheap as Davis but his price is still out of line compared to his opportunity. Since taking the field for the first time in Week 7, Mims has a 44% air yards share and a 26% target share. Those marks are top-five and top-15 among receivers.





Tight End




Travis Kelce, KC

The Sunday main slate is completely devoid of good values among the cheap tight ends. Instead of bricking on a $3,900 tight end, it may be better to pay up for the safety of Kelce. He has topped 20 DraftKings points in half of his games this year and only has two games below 14 points. His matchup with the Bucs has a 55.5-point total.




Darren Waller, LV

If paying $7,000 for Kelce is too much to ask, Waller is $1,000 less and in a great spot as well. His game has a 56-point total and the Falcons are allowing more DraftKings points to opposing tight ends than any other team in the NFL.








New York Giants

The Giants are slated to face Brandon Allen as the new starting quarterback for the Bengals this week. Allen drew three starts for the Broncos last year and looked about as awful as expected. He completed less than half of his passes and threw an interception on 2.4% of his throws. He also took a sack on nearly one of every ten dropbacks.
