Listed below are my best Week 10 Draftkings Cash Game Plays (Sunday Main Slate beginning at 1:00 PM EST).
These are contests where the goal is to finish in the top 45% of the total standings to win twice your dollar entry. We’re targeting players who will score 2.5 times their dollar value. (Example: an $8,000 player that scores 20 points or better is ideal for cash games (8 x 2.5 =20).
The type of player we want is one that has a “high floor” — meaning we want players who will likely get the most touches in great game specific situations and opportunities to succeed in a particular week. No need to be sneaky and worry about ownership percentages. Simple, right?
Dak Prescott $7,300 With the Ezekiel Elliott suspension finally in place, Prescott becomes the most valuable quarterback for week 10 in any format. Dallas will also be without their starting left tackle, so i expect Dak to dominate this game with his arms and his legs. He’s the top priced QB this week, and there is a lot of value at the position, but $7,300 is not the usual top price so it’s still a value in that sense. If Dez Bryant ends up being out, I would downgrade Prescott slightly.
Matthew Stafford $6,800 This choice is pretty simple. The Lions can’t run the ball and the Browns can’t stop the pass. Expect the Lions to throw 40+ times in this game no matter the score of the game or situation.
Other plays: Ryan Fitzpatrick $4,900 Jared Goff $6,800 Josh McCown $6,200
Leonard Fournette $8,400 It’s scary for some people to fade Le’Veon Bell in cash games, and I don’t blame anyone for feeling that way. However, Fournette to me is just as much a sure thing as Bell, as the Jaguars will run the ball 30+ times no matter what because they simply don’t trust Blake Bortles. Fournette should be very well rested, as he missed a game with a toe injury, had their bye week, and served a one game suspension last week. The Jags will rely heavily on Fournette once again, and his grind out running style and big play ability will be on display.
Bilal Powell $4,000 Matt Forte is officially out with a knee injury, opening up some nice price value with Powell going against a Tampa defense who really struggles with pass catching running backs. Powell has consistently been an RB1 when Forte misses a game. Elijah McGuire will see work in this game as well, but Powell is very safe with a lot of upside.
Other plays: Le’Veon Bell $9,800 Todd Gurley $8,700 Carlos Hyde $6,300 Jordan Howard $6,100
Antonio Brown $9,500 Brown is expensive, but if you aren’t using Bell, you really have to use Brown, and that is certainly not a bad thing. Last year against the Colts, Brown went for 100 yards and 3 touchdowns. This is a similar spot for the Steelers, as the Colts are just awful in all phases on defense.
A.J. Green $7,700 Another great spot for AJ, this week going against the Titans who have one of the worst secondaries in football. On top of the favorable matchup, Green probably feels he’s got something to prove after getting tossed out of the last week for punching Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey. $7,700 is a very nice price, and the argument can be made to play him over Antonio Brown for that reason alone.
Other Plays: Sterling Shepard $5,200 Golden Tate $6,800 Adam Humphries $3,100
Cameron Brate $4,100 Mike Evans is suspended for this game (seems to be a running theme here) and Brate immediately becomes the best red zone threat for Tampa Bay. This Jets-Bucs game could easily end up being a shoot out, so expect Brate to be heavily involved in the passing game.
Other Plays: Austin Hooper $3,000 Garrett Celek $2,500 C.J. Fiedorowicz $3,400
Defense – Jaguars $3,900 Rams $3,600 Steelers $3,700 Bears $3,000
