DFS Cash Game Breakdown 2020 WildCard

Josh Allen, BUF

Josh Allen is simply the best value and ceiling play on both sites. He isn't priced egregiously high on either sites' short slate and has a ceiling that only Lamar Jackson can rival on the weekend. Allen finished top-five in passing completions, touchdowns, and yards. He also adds value with his legs.


Ryann Tannehill, TEN

For playoff content, I'll try to list one player from each day so whether you're playing Saturday, Sunday, or both, there's something of value here for you. On Sunday, the value comes with Tannehill. Vegas has the total of Tennessee's matchup with the Ravens at 54.5 points and the spread is just over a field goal in favor of the Ravens. The game has the highest total of the weekend. Vegas has the Titans leading all underdog in scoring with their implied team total of 25.75. Buying the cheaper quarterback in the shootout of the weekend looks like a winning strategy this week.


Running Back

Ronald Jones, TB

Jones' team holds the fourth-highest team total on the slate and they are the second-biggest favorite on the slate. Jones has played in three wins since Week 10. He has averaged 17.7 carries for 116.7 yards in those games. In an easy win over a fake playoff team in Washington, expect him to run wild at a cheap cost.


J.K. Dobbins, SEA

Dobbins doesn't dominate his backfield like Jones does but he also doesn't need to given his role at the goal line and his efficiency. Dobbins leads all non-quarterbacks at six yards per attempt (min. 100 carries). He also has eight of the team's 12 running back carries inside the five yard-line since Week 13. With the highest implied team total of the slate, he should have no problem scoring versus the Titans.


Wide Receiver

Terry McLaurin, WAS

At $7,100 on FanDuel and $6,300 on DraftKings, McLaurin still comes in as one of the best ways to buy volume adjusted for his price. Through Week 16, his 47.1% air yards share led all wide receivers outside of Michael Thomas, who was working within a small sample. His team should be forced to throw excessively and aggressively as they are the second-biggest underdog of the weekend. That makes McLaurin in play as both a high-floor and high-ceiling option.


Darnell Mooney, CHI

Mooney is just a cheap way to get a lot of volume on a team that could lead the weekend in pass attempts.


Tight End

Cole Kmet, CHI

Kmet set a career-high in snap share in Week 10. Dating back to that week, he has averaged 5.1 targets per game. Jimmy Graham has played on more than half of the team's snaps once over his past six games and is mostly an afterthought in the Chicago on offense. Kmet is only $5,300 on FanDuel and $3,000 on DraftKings.


Mark Andrews, BAL

Tight end is an egregious position on the Sunday slate. Andrews is cheap enough that you hardly have to "pay up" for him. He is first in air yards share and third in target share among tight ends. On a team with a slate-high implied total, getting to Andrews in cash makes sense.
