DraftKings NFL Cash Plays – Week 14

Miss the playoffs in your season-long league? The Fantasy Football Ghost has got some DraftKings NFL cash plays to help raise your spirits!

I can’t be the only one surprised that Week 14 is already here. The good thing about this week is that fantasy playoffs usually begin this week so all of those owners that weren’t lucky enough to make it to the playoffs in their season-long leagues will be looking to soften that disappoint by plunging themselves into DFS for this week at the very least. There should be a lot of action to take advantage of this weekend.

A quick look back before he march forward: I posted a multiplier of 3.16 last week, well beyond the 2.5 times value we aim for every week, which should set us up nicely with some winnings that we can use to target our newly-widened player pool that just returned from a 13 week vacation. While they’ve been busy focused on a small subset of players, we’ve been fully exposed to the good and bad of the NFL, and we’ve been taking notes! Right? Let’s take advantage of this turkey shoot and make ourselves a nice Christmas bonus in Week 14 of DraftKings NFL cash games.

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 matchups. 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 match ups!

DraftKings NFL Cash Plays for Week 14


Drew Brees – $6,600

Give me all the Drew Brees shares this week! Coming off an embarrassing loss to Dallas last week and with a long week to prepare for Tampa Bay, Brees is sailing into a dream matchup. The Buccaneers are allowing the third-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season. Their defense is allowing an average of nearly 275 passing yards per game, the fifth-most in the league, and 2.3 passing touchdowns per game, the second-most in the NFL.

Brees, meanwhile, is averaging nearly 270 passing yards per game for the Saints, the tenth-most in the league, and 2.5 passing touchdowns per game, the third-highest average in the NFL. Tampa Bay also struggles in creating interceptions with only 0.6 secured per game, tying them for the fourth-least in the league. Brees is particularly stingy in this department with only 0.2 interceptions per game, tying him for the least thrown per game. The Saints are also eight point favorites, providing further evidence that Brees should be heavily considered this week.

Gus Edwards – $4,500

Since taking over the reigns in Baltimore, Gus Edwards has been on an incredible tear, posting 315 rushing yards and a touchdown over three games. He will head to Kansas City on Sunday to face a Chiefs team dealing with a significant outside distraction. Even when at their best, the Kansas City defense has shown plenty of signs of being exploitable by opposing running backs. The Chiefs are giving up the second-most fantasy points to the position with only Cincinnati giving up more points. Kansas City is allowing 1.2 rushing touchdowns per game, putting them in a tie for the third-most allowed this season.

Baltimore is also scoring an average of 1.2 rushing touchdowns per game, tying them for the fourth-most in the NFL. The Ravens are also tied for the sixth-most rushing yards per game. With only a $4,500 price tag, Edwards screams value and needs only to hit 11.25 points to outperform the 2.5 times value mark we’ve set for ourselves in this column.

Mike Evans – $7,500
Smack in the middle of one of the best seasons of his career, Mike Evans will look to further build on that success this Sunday against the Saints. New Orleans’ defense is giving up the most fantasy points in the league to the wide receiver position with 2,652 receiving yards allowed, the most in the league by the way, and 17 receiving touchdowns hauled in by opposing wide receivers, the third-most in the NFL.
Meanwhile, the Buccaneers’ wide receiving corps is gaining an impressive 9.9 yards per target, the second-highest average in the league, while the Saints defense is allowing the same 9.9 yard per target to the position, also the second-highest average allowed of all the defenses in the NFL.  Evans will look to capitalize on this opportunity as Tampa Bay’s most targeted player with 105 total targets this season, the twelfth-highest total of all wide receivers in the league.

Vance McDonald – $3,800
A good way to find value is to pay down at TE — do that by clicking on Vance McDonald. McDonald draws the Raiders who are allowing the second-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season. Oakland is also allowing 11.3 yards per target to the position! That’s the kind of statistic that should make anyone re-read that last sentence several times while rubbing their eyes, just to make sure they didn’t misread it. Just so we are clear, I didn’t mistype that either, they really are allowing 11.3 yards per target to opposing tight ends. Wow!
Pittsburgh is uniquely positioned to take advantage of that weakness as the Steelers are gaining 9.6 yards per target when the ball is thrown to one of their tight ends, the second-highest average in the league. At only $3,800 dollars and with 10 other tight ends priced higher than him on this slate, McDonald could be the player that puts a large number of lineups over the top of their opponents this weekend.

That’s all for Week 14, stick with me as we close out the season strong and as we keep making you money in cash games. With only two results under the 2.5 multiplier threshold this season, I want to keep the trust you’ve placed in me holding strong. Good luck to everyone, feel free to both reach out to me and follow me on Twitter at @TheFFGhost. I’ll do my best to answer any and all questions you may have!
