DraftKings NFL Cash Plays – Week 16

Instead of sugar plums The Fantasy Football Ghost has dollars signs dancing in his head. These Week 16 DraftKings NFL cash plays may make those a reality! Week 15 has been described by a great number of fantasy players as the worst week for fantasy in memory. While I wouldn’t go that far, we did come in just a hair under the 2.5 times value that we aim for every week, posting a multiple of 2.24 times value. Like I said, not horrible, but not all the way up to par either. In retrospect, stacking Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski probably wasn’t the best idea as I exposed half of the players I recommended to the same game and same team. Lesson learned. That said, the other two players I suggested last week collectively averaged just under three times value so if you avoided that game, like I should have, and chose to take the other part of my recommendations then you likely did quite well for yourself. With only two more weeks of the regular season left, I’m obviously looking to finish the year out strong and on a high note. Let’s get to it then! As a reminder, I will put forth a few players each week that I think you should work into your cash lineups. Some weeks I might only have a single player at a position, the next week I may have three, it is all going to depend on the strength of the slate, the values present on a given week and the match ups. The following week I will recap how my picks fared. A successful week will be determined by the players I suggest averaging 2.5 times their value, while an unsuccessful week will be an average under 2.5 times value. Another quick reminder, much of the data presented in this piece can be found in Dave Caban’s Weekly Stat Explorer, found here. Check it out to keep on top of all the week’s key matchups!
