DraftKings Week 17 Cash Game Plays

Pat James highlights the best bang for your buck cash game plays for DraftKings’ Week 17 main slate.

Week 16 Review

I regret not being able to get to my desktop Sunday, but I was traveling all morning. I would have updated the article to include Dion Lewis, who we found out was going to get all the touches. In the article I mentioned I would only play Devonta Freeman if Tevin Coleman sat, which made me pivot to Lewis. Players who achieved value based on the double up cash line were Cam Newton, Drew Stanton, Todd Gurley, Keelan Cole, and Eric Ebron. Misses included Michael Thomas and Kendall Wright. Having Gurley was probably good enough to cash everything despite the rest of your lineup. Overall my record improves to 79-53

DraftKings Week 17 Cash Game Plays

***SUNDAY MORNING UPDATE*** Since writing this article, there have been several news items that will impact this slate. Due to inactives and other beat writer information add Dion Lewis, Carlos Hyde, Akeem Hunt to recommended plays. At wide receiver, Julio Jones replaces Keenan Allen as my favorite stud WR now that he appears to be completely healthy. I’m REMOVING Jarvis Landry as a recommended play because there have been reports the Dolphins will be evaluating quarterbacks today. At quarterback, I’m adding Patrick Mahomes and Matthew Stafford as price pivots below and above Tyrod Taylor. Good Luck in Week 17!
