Week 7:
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 Quarterbacks.


Drew Brees (5,700)

I have Drew Brees as the highest point per dollar play on the slate. I understand his home road splits are drastic and they have been more apt to run the ball with Ingram in the lineup. The problem is I don’t think that will have much success running the football versus the Ravens. Brees has an implied team total of 23 and positive gamescript as a three point dog in this matchup.

Running Back:

Ezekiel Elliott (8,100)

Elliott is the Dallas Cowboys offense that’s not good but it’s good in fantasy. Elliott in recent weeks has also been utilized more in the passing game. Even at thi 8,100 price tag Elliott still has an extremely high floor in this matchup.

Wide Receiver:

Josh Reynolds (3,500)
Looks like Reynolds will probably be chalk in cash games if Cooper Kupp sits. The Rams are the new age “Greatest Show on Turf” so it’s never bad to have cheap exposure to this offense.

Tight End:

Ben Watson (3,000)

Always love a little revenge narrative Ben Watson doesn’t seem like the most vengeful, but he doesn’t need much to make value on this price. A nice play action fake to Ingram at the goal line, Brees goes over the top to Watson and your there


Bills (2,300)

Bills D was in the Millionaire Maker two weeks ago. I like them in this spot versus a banged up colts team they should easily make value on this (2,300) price tag.

Other Cash Game options:
Alex Smith, Matt Stafford, Todd Gurley, Adrian Peterson, Golden Tate, Deandre Hopkins, Greg Olse, Kyle Rudolph, Lions, Panthers
