Cash Game Breakdown:
Cash games in Daily Fantasy Sports are considered 50/50’s and head to heads. When we are building cash games we are trying to build our line up with the highest floor possible. A high “Floor” line up is a lineup that is built to show optimal usage. Usage is guaranteed opportunity. Usage can be quantified by snap percentage and targets for Running Backs, snap percentage and targets for Wide Receivers, and positive game script and implied team totals for


Kirk Cousins (5.5K)

Great price. Great Game environment. Great matchup. Cousins gets a Patriots secondary that has been torched multiple times this season by sub par quarterbacks. Cousins is not that and he is coming into Foxboro flanked by probably the best receiving duo in the league in Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs.

Running back:

Phillip Lindsey (5.4K)

There should be value at the running back position this sunday. On any slate that includes the primetime games Austin Eckler is a lock because of Melvin Gordon being out and his price tag. On the Mainslate the value will be centered around the Leonard Fournette suspension, but I don’t want to parse between TJ Yeldon and Carlos Hyde. The guy i think you need to go with here is Phillip Lindsey. Lindsey has been uber efficient as a rookie and gets a fantastic matchup against a Cincinnati defense that is near the bottom of the league in almost every defensive category versus running backs.

Wide Receiver:

Adam Thielen (8.0K)

In my opinion, Adam Thielen is the best all around receiver in the league, and he gets a matchup versus Patriots slot corner Jonathan Jones that is more than favorable. Teams have been attacking Jones in the slot, because that is where the Patriots on paper are most vulnerable. Thielen should eat in this matchup and with the Vikings implied team total being what it is

Tight End:

Eric Ebron (4.2K)

Ebron is going to be the chalk tight end this weekend with Jack Doyle out. Ebron has been a fixture for the colts offense in the Red Zone this year and has scored a total of eleven touchdowns. We would roster Ebron every week if he was at this price, and the snaps were guaranteed. If the snaps were guaranteed he would be 6k by now, based off how the Draftkings Algorithm does its pricing.


Chiefs (2.5K)

The Chiefs are 15 point favorites in Oakland this week,and could possibly be getting Eric Berry back this weekend. Three of the last four defenses that faced the raiders were top 5 defenses on the week in FF scoring and seven of the last ten finished top 10 in the top ten. Carr has taken three plus sacks in 8 of 9 games this season.

Other Cash Game Considerations:

Cam Newton, Dalvin Cook, Christian McCaffrey, DJ Moore, Julian Edelman, K. Rudolph, Chris Herndon, Minnesota Vikings D, Packers D
