NFL DFS Cash Game Value Plays for FanDuel, DraftKings (Week 14)


After weeks of seeing main slates sit around the 10- and 11-game marks we get a week of respite in Week 14. This week sees a relatively massive 13-game slate as our featured slate, and it is providing plenty of options for us to utilize. If you are out of your fantasy football playoffs then why not turn your attention to DFS and try to win some money?

As always we have a reasonable split when it comes to the totals this week. Intriguingly, not a single total is sitting below 40 this week, but we do have seven below 45. In a similar vein, there is not a single game with a projected total sitting over 50 right now. The remaining six games on the slate reside between the 45 and 50-point marks. That close grouping of all 13 games this week makes our choices even wider as ut keeps all of the games on the table at all positions.

Let's take a look at the DFS cash game value plays for Week 14 of the 2019 NFL season. This article will take a look at some of the value plays for each week of the NFL. However, usually when you look at value plays for GPP you are swinging for the fences somewhat. Here I will be focusing on cash games and the necessity for slightly more safety as you are just looking to finish in the top half or so of the competition. Therefore, we are looking for cheaper players who should see a decent workload, be that pass attempts, targets or carries.

Quarterback DFS Cash Game Value Picks

Sam Darnold, NYJ vs. MIA | DK: $6,000, FD: $7,600

Last week just went badly wrong for Darnold and the Jets. However, they get the chance to bounce back this week with their revenge game against the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins Defense is allowing close to 23 FPPG to quarterbacks.

Derek Carr, OAK vs. TEN | DK: $5,000, FD: $7,500

This price offers real value for Carr. He has struggled the past two weeks, but that has been on the road in the cold. Now he comes back home, into milder weather, against a team who have at times been vulnerable to opposing passing games. This game has shootout written all over it and Carr is a huge value if that happens.

 

Running Back DFS Cash Game Value Picks

Sony Michel/James White, NE vs. KC | DK: $5,600/$5,500, FD: $5,800

Your decision between Michel and White depends on how you see this game going. There are two main theories; either the Patriots try to use Michel to control the clock, aiming to give him 25-plus carries, or they are chasing the Chiefs offense all game and they have to turn towards White out of the backfield in the same way they did against Houston. You could make a case for playing both, but be prepared to be disappointed with one of them if you do, because their values are tied to two very different game scripts.

Phillip Lindsay, DEN @ HOU | DK: $5,300, FD: $6,300

Lindsay was just never able to put the hammer down last week in the matchup with the Chargers. However, this week he gets the opportunity to go against a Texans Defense who allows 19 FPPG to lead backs and over 28 points to the running back position as a whole. Those numbers would also make Royce Freeman ($4,000) a potentially sneaky GPP play if you need a boom-or-bust option who gets targets in the passing game.

Adrian Peterson, WSH @ GB | DK: $4,000, FD: $6,800

Derrius Guice is the sexy name in the Redskins backfield, but please do not forget about Peterson, who actually led the position in touches last week. Green Bay is allowing over 20 FPPG to lead backs and nearly 27 points to the position in total. There should be plenty of points to go around for the Redskins running backs this week, so give me the one I can get significantly cheaper.

 

Wide Receiver DFS Cash Game Value Picks

James Washington, PIT @ ARI | DK: $6,000, FD: $7,100

Always target the Cardinals Defense has been one of my mottos of DFS this season. Washingon is a little more expensive than we might like for this article. However, he sits a long way down the pricing at the receiver position and has the chance to return top-10 value this week. The Cardinals are allowing close to 20 points to lead receivers this season, and Washington has been in the 20-point range in three of the last four weeks.

Robby Anderson, NYJ vs. MIA | DK: $5,100, FD: $6,000

While many turn their attentions to Jamison Crowder this week, the numbers here tell you to pivot and look at Anderson. The Dolphins Defense is actually reasonably stingy against the slot wide receivers, but are allowing over 20 FPPG to lead receivers. Anderson is for all intents and purposes the Jets lead receiver, so ride him this week in what should be a great matchup for him.

Allen Lazard, GB vs. WSH | DK: $4,200, FD: $5,200

Lazard is coming off a huge week in New York last week. He seems to have planted his flag as a solid option in this team, and Rodgers was happy to take some deep shots to him last week. He is a little boom-or-bust for cash games, but this is a player who is very talented, and if he is open Rodgers will find him. Take the gamble because Lazard could be the player that gives you the biggest ROI on your roster this week.

 

Tight End DFS Cash Game Value Picks

Jack Doyle, IND @ TB | DK: $4,600, FD: $5,600

The tight end position looks even worse than usual this week. However, Doyle has the potential to be the savior. With no Eric Ebron on the field, Doyle saw 11 targets and found the end zone this week. The Buccaneers Defense has trouble with the tight end position, allowing 16 FPPG this season.

Jonnu Smith, TEN @ OAK | DK: $3,100, FD: $5,200

Do not get me confused. Doyle is my guy all-day every day this week. However, if you need to save some cash then Smith should offer upside against a Raider Defense which ranks 24th against the position on DraftKings.
