Sunday’s DraftKings cash line featured a Haskins-McLaurin stack that could be something truly special. Injuries also derailed an expensive Zach Ertz game, but my cash range still reached 164 DraftKings points. Nice, but the DFS Week 17 action can be even better.
This week’s composition will have a similar taste in some ways, though I will switch to another dirty Washington cheap strategy. Thanks to DeAndre Washington, Tyler Boyd, DeVante Parker and Miles Sanders for getting to the finish line last Sunday, though I will be going to some other cash games in week 17.
WEEK 17 NOT RATING:
Quarterback | Running back Wide receiver Tight end D / ST | Kicker
Week 17 Draft Drafts: NFL DFS cash lineup
QB Case Keenum, Washington @ Cowboys ($ 4,500). We got the basement price at Haskins last week and were at 5 times the pace before his injury. DK again goes very low in a pass offense from Washington, which was stretching both Haskins and Keenum, with the last 20 DK points averaging 1-3 a week.
Week 17 of DFS:
DK GPP | Y! GPP | FD Cash | values
RB Derrick Henry, Titans @ Texans ($ 8,100). The Titans favored Henry knowing he was going to win Week 17, while the Texans’ motives were more vague. The Texans’ defense has faded and fall to 27th in DK points allowed in RBs.
RB Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys v. Washington ($ 8,000). Washington is simply rejuvenating Saquon Barkley for the highest rushing game of his career during a total funeral for the sophomore. Zeke lost 20 touches in every game since Week 6.
MORE: Which players are sitting outside Week 17?
WR DJ Chark Jr. vs. Jaguars Colts ($ 5,800). Chark struggled on his return on Sunday, but the target volume makes him a solid midfielder. Chark has seen 9.5 average performances in Gardner Minshew’s last four starts.
WR Michael Gallup, Cowboys v. Washington ($ 5,400). Cooper is clearly back on the fritz, so goals will flow to Gallup. He has achieved double-digit goals in four games since Week 10.
WR Golden Tate, Giants vs. Eagles ($ 5,500): The Cowboys missed a couple of shots against an injured Eagles minor, but Tate arrives to take his chances at every level of defense. Tate is averaging 9 goals in his last six games with Daniel Jones starting.
WEEK 17 PPR GRADES:
Running back Wide receiver Tight end
TE Dallas Goedert, Eagles @ Giants ($ 4,900). Ertz left for part of this Cowboys game, but 12 goals is a significant workload for Goedert to get and then stay below $ 5K. Ertz hits and Goedert ranks fourth in TE goals since Week 11, making this a screaming cash game.
FLEX DeAndre Washington, Raiders @ Broncos ($ 5,200). Washington saw 20 points in each of the two previous games lost to Jacobs. Watch Jacobs’s situation, because his absence would make Washington a really cheap flex work horse.
DST Packers @ Lions ($ 3,000). David Blough ranks last among quarterbacks to start the final four weeks in fantasy points per fall, with fourth in picks and third in sacks. I’ll go for a medium price.
