DFS Cash Game Breakdown 2020 Week 15
Jalen Hurts, PHI
Hurts should be priced like Lamar Jackson this week. In his first career start, Hurts ran 18 times for 105 yards. That was the fifth-most rush attempts for a quarterback since 2000. His rushing yardage total is the 16th-most since 2000. He ran for over 1,200 yards in his final collegiate season so this shouldn't come as a surprise.
Mitchell Trubisky, CHI
Trubisky returned to the lineup in Week 12 and has two games over 21 DraftKings points in his previous three contests. In games that don't see him get benched, he's 3/5 on topping 21 points. In his return, he's averaged 37.7 attempts to go along with 3.3 rushes per game. Volume is less valuable at quarterback than other positions but it's still helping Trubsiky become a solid weekly value on both major sites.
Cam Akers, LAR
Akers is the lead-back on a Rams team that is running the ball at a top-10 rate and faces the jaguars as 17-point favorites this week. Over the past two weeks, he has 50 carries for 243 yards plus four targets. Akers is one of the best running back plays this week.
Dalvin Cook, MIN
With savings to be had at quarterback and receiver, it's viable to get up to Cook. Cook leads the league in yards from scrimmage per game at 139.5 and is averaging 26 touches per game before factoring out the game in which he left early with an injury. He should be projected to be the RB1 on every slate going forward.
Terry McLaurin, WAS
McLaurin and Stefon Diggs are the only two players in the NFL to have seen at least six targets in every game this year. Alex Smith is expected to play this week which puts McLaurin back on the radar. Washington faces Seattle this week. No team has allowed more FanDuel and DraftKings points to opposing receivers this year.
Brandon Aiyuk, SF
Deebo Samuel and George Kittle appear to be done for the year. That leaves Aiyuk as the only notable pass-catcher on San Francisco. He has played in five games that neither Samuel nor Kittle was present for the entirety of the game. In those contests, he has averaged 6.4 receptions for 75.8 yards and .4 touchdowns. He has posted those numbers on a staggering 10.4 targets per game.
Jordan Akins, HOU
Akins is averaging 4.5 targets per game since Will Fuller was suspended but he only has five receptions for 10 yards. Because of that, his price is still at $2,800 on DraftKings. His role is larger than his price and the Houston/Indianapolis game has the second-highest total on the main slate this week.
Dallas Goedert, PHI
Since Week 10, Goedert is averaging five catches for 58.8 yards per game on seven targets weekly. He leads the Eagles with a 21% target share and a 24% air yards share. Until he gets a significant price bump, we keep playing Philly's No. 1 receiver at his middling TE price.
The Seahawks aren't a particularly talented defense but their matchup is worth targeting. Alex Smith is throwing an interception on 2.7% of his throws and taking a sack on 7.9% of his dropbacks. His yardage numbers aren't bad on a per-game basis but he is only throwing a touchdown on 1.7% of his attempts. The Seattle defense is one of the highest floor and highest ceiling units this week.
