DraftKings Cash Game Plays for Week 2

Let’s take a look at DraftKings cash game picks for Week 2. There aren’t as many obvious value plays and misprices. Quarterback, as usual, is all or nothing. Though I love paying down at quarterback as we did in Week 1, it may be tougher to do that in Week 2. I think we can get away with not jamming in the top running backs as they are either really expensive or in bad matchups. Wide receiver may be a good spot to spend at, which is opposite of our Week 1 approach. I usually never recommend more than one tight end, however, three popped when I did my research. Let’s take a look at cash game picks for Week 2.

Week 1 Review

I will be tracking my record on plays recommended according to the DraftKings cash line for that Week. In Week 1, the cash line fell at a score of about 125 (in double ups). This means a player need to hit 2.5x his salary to be considered as “attaining value.” I accumulated a W/L record of 5-5 in Week 1. Though I must say the losses were mostly chalky players (Le’Veon BellDavid Johnson, Kendall Wright, Doug Baldwin, and Carson Palmer), meaning they didn’t wreck your lineups because the a ton of other lineups rostered them as well. The plays attained greater than 2.5x value on Carson Wentz, LeSean McCoy, Todd Gurley, Pierre Garcon, and Zach Ertz.
