It’s week 14, which means the last day of the regular season for our seasonal players. Hopefully if you roster Jonathan Taylor you’re already in good standing and can survive the week without him, but the beauty of DFS is we don’t have to worry about that! Our sneak peak of the slate has a new time (Friday night at 8:30 EST), so be sure to join us there, and we’ll be on as usual for our Gameday Breakdown on Sunday at 10 AM EST. Good luck!





Josh Allen, BUF ($7800)

This marquee Bills-Bucs affair is set to be a fantasy goldmine with a 3-point spread and 54 O/U. Both of these teams need this game badly, but the Bills moreso as they’re now struggling to even maintain a playoff spot after their home loss to New England. Allen should have to revert to 40+ passes in this one, and the Bucs have allowed the seventh most FPPG to opposing QBs. Allen is still a force on the ground with 422 rushing yards and three TDs as well.

Other options - Justin Herbert

Mid-tier options - Dak Prescott, Russell Wilson



Taysom Hill, NO ($5600)

Taysom is the perfect example of “fantasy sometimes doesn’t meet reality” as he had a brutal game last week with four picks and a 44.2 passer rating. He still posted an elite fantasy score with 27.66 DK points, thanks to rushing for over 100 yards. Fortunately that’s the one predictive thing Hill has, and the Jets have allowed the eighth most rushing yards to QBs while also posting the fifth lowest pressure rate. Hill makes a ton of sense in cash at his price tag.

Other options - Teddy Bridgewater, Taylor Heinecke, Cam Newton





Austin Ekeler, LAC ($8300)

Ekeler is my play of the week regardless of position (which hurts to say as a Giants fan). The big thing to watch for in terms of Ekeler’s overall upside is the status of both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, who each have a shot to be cleared from the COVID list in time to play on Sunday. Even if both are back, though, Ekeler is still a rock solid play against a crumbling Giants team who has allowed the sixth most FPPG to RBs and 5.1 YPC. Play him with confidence, and look for him to be the top overall scorer on the slate if the WRs don’t make it in time.

Other options - Alvin Kamara, Joe Mixon, Leonard Fournette

Mid-tier options - Eli Mitchell, Josh Jacobs, Antonio Gibson, Saquon Barkley



Javonte Williams, DEN ($5900)

The magic of Javonte was unleashed on Sunday night against the Chiefs, as Javonte parlayed his starting role into 29 touches, six catches on nine targets, 178 total yards, and a TD. This week he gets the Lions who have allowed 5.4 YPC and the third most FPPG to opposing RBs. There is a chance Melvin Gordon returns for this one, but honestly Javonte didn’t see near enough of a price hike to warrant not playing him, even if Gordon does come back to eat into his role.

Other options - James Robinson, Jamaal Williams, Rex Burkhead






Tyreek Hill, KC ($8500)

There is no real standout WR yet on the slate that we NEED to pay for, especially since the mid-tier is full of options. However, if you find yourself with the salary, Tyreek recently torched this Raiders squad for 7-83-2 on ten targets, and they’ve allowed the third most FPPG and the highest aDOT over the past three weeks.

Other options - Stefon Diggs

Mid-tier options - Chris Godwin, Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf



Hunter Renfrow, LV ($6100)

On the other side of the ball in this KC/LV game we have Renfrow, who is the epitome of a cash game WR. In week 10 the Chiefs held Renfrow to a 6.6 aDOT, but he still surpassed his cash floor with a 7-46-1 line on nine targets. Renfrow has 9+ targets in four of his last five games, and Darren Waller being banged up only solidifies his floor while heightening his ceiling as well.

Other options - Mike Williams (elite play if he’s in and Keenan Allen is out), DJ Moore, Elijah Moore, Brandon Aiyuk, Jerry Jeudy, Jalen Guyton (if both Allen and Williams out)





Travis Kelce, KC ($7400)

Even though Kelce dudded last week against Denver, he still saw eight targets which gives him eight or more in all games but two this season. It really doesn’t look like a week to pay up for TE in cash, but Kelce can’t get much of a better matchup, as the Raiders have given up the second most FPPG to opposing TEs this season.

Other options - Rob Gronkowski, Mark Andrews



James O’Shaughnessy, JAX ($2900)

Fortunately we have a punt at TE this week for cash (albeit a very un-exciting one). O’Shaughnessy has basically become a direct replacement for Dan Arnold in the Jags offense with 11 targets over the past two weeks, and at $2900 he doesn’t need to do much to pay off that tag. His matchup (TEN fifth fewest FPPG allowed to TEs) is much worse than his WR teammates (TEN most FPPG allowed the WRs), but this is a savvy price play to fit other pieces into cash.

Other options - Foster Moreau, Evan Engram, Gerald Everett, Jared Cook



Seattle Seahawks ($3100)
Cleveland Browns ($2700)
Carolina Panthers ($2800)
Detroit Lions ($2400)
Los Angeles Chargers ($4300)
