DraftKings Week 10 Cash Game Plays

Pat James highlights the best bang for your buck cash game plays for DraftKings’ Week 10 main slate.

Week 9 Review

This week my cash game plays put up a 6-3 record to improve my cash game record to 42-32. Dak Prescot, Todd Gurley, Devin Funchess, Jack Doyle, and my Saturday update additions of Russell Wilson and Vernon Davis all met value based on the double-up cash lines. Dez Bryant, Russell Shepard, and Jimmy Graham all fell short of expectations.

DraftKings Week 10 Cash Game Plays

Update: Matt Forte being inactive makes Bilal Powell my top overall play at running back. I would rank them Powell, Carlos Hyde, Le’Veon Bell, Jordan Howard. In addition, Jason McCourty being active makes me lean a bit towards Golden Tate instead of my initial write up of Marvin Jones. I wouldn’t rearrange my entire lineup to swap from Jones to Tate, but if you can do so without much of a shake up, I would.


Matthew Stafford ($6,800)

Boxes Checked: Home favorite, team implied total, matchup, funnel defense, red zone play calling. Matthew Stafford faces a Browns pass funnel defense that allows 230 yards through the air, but only 84 yards on the ground. The Lions check many of the team boxes, as they are projected for 28 implied points and they are 13-point home favorites. The Lions have a non-existent running game and have struggled to establish one for much of the season. This is evident when looking at the play calling in the red zone. The Lions have thrown the ball 51 times to just 27 rushes inside the 20-yard line. Stafford has established a renewed rapport with Marvin Jones, which has raised both of their fantasy floors on a weekly basis. There are a few value players that allow us to pay up for the safety of Stafford.
