Welcome to the Team Rise or Fall NFL Week 10 cash picks for FanDuel. I’m here to hand out a few building blocks for your cash game plays this weekend. As always, with “cash games” (50/50s, Double-Ups, Head to Head) we’re not necessarily looking to take 1st place. We need to beat 40-50% of the field so a solid floor is more important than volatile upside. Let’s get to it!
Murray rates as the highest value in the Team Rise or Fall NFL Study Hub. He’s averaging 35 fantasy points per game over his last three games, and his rushing upside (We’re projecting him for 52 rushing yards) makes him a great play even with a price tag of 8.8k.
Tua ties for 5th in our Study Hub value ratings with Deshaun Watson (8.3k) and Jared Goff (7.4k) with a price of 6.8k versus a Chargers defense ranked 28th against quarterbacks. Tagovailoa’s first start resulted in 5.7 fantasy points, but he bounced back with 21.4 points last week in Arizona. I’m looking for the rookie to get more comfortable against a defense that doesn’t put up much resistance.
I’ll list three running backs today because we’re faced with the ultra-value of Davis this week. Mike Davis is the 2nd highest value running back in our NFL Study Hub with a price of 5.4k. Davis has been priced as high as 8.4k while filling in for the injured McCaffrey, but it’s worth noting he averaged just 8.26 fantasy points per game in his last three games before Christian’s return. Tampa Bay’s run defense comes in at 4th in the league and could be extra feisty coming off the embarrassing Sunday night loss to New Orleans.
I liked Robinson last week against Houston’s 31st ranked rushing defense, so of course, I like him this week against Green Bay who comes in at 30th against the run in our NFL Study Hub. He “only” put up 15.9 fantasy points last week although he’s the leading running back on the slate over the last four weeks with a 19.6 point average. Robinson ranks as our 5th highest value at running back and carries a price of 7.3k.
Edmonds is the highest value play in our NFL Study Hub and takes on the 24th ranked rush defense of the Buffalo Bills. I tried to attack the Bills run defense last week with Deejay Dallas and well, that didn’t quite work out. “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” We’re projecting Chase for 17 carries and four catches in a game with a 56 point implied total. He’s the 9th most expensive running back on the slate at 7.1k and should be well worth his price tag.
Robby Anderson and Stefon Diggs
Anderson and Diggs tie as the best value plays in the Team Rise or Fall NFL Study Hub. Anderson cost 6.4k, we’re projecting him for nine targets, and he’s playing in a game with a 50.5 implied total. Diggs cost 7.9k, he’s projected for 10 targets, and he’s in the previously mentioned game with a 56 point implied total against Arizona. If you’re strictly looking at price then Anderson is your guy.
Johnson ties for 4th highest value at wide receiver in our NFL Study Hub. Diontae and his 5.7k price tied with Miami’s Devante Parker (6k) while being projected for three more targets (Nine in total). The Steelers take on Cincinnati’s 26th ranked pass defense putting Johnson in a great spot.
Waller is the highest value at tight end in our NFL Study Hub and comes with a price tag of 7k. So far this season the tight end position has seen two standouts (Kelce and Kittle) and a bunch of OK guys. Over the last four weeks, the top-performing tight ends on the slate are T.J. Hockenson (11.4 points average), Rob Gronkowski (11 points average), Darren Waller (10 point average), and Logan Thomas (10 point average). Waller is projected for the most targets out of the group with eight.
The Team Rise or Fall NFL Study Hub projects Engram for eight targets while rating him as the 6th best value at tight end on the slate. Combine that with the Philadelphia Eagles’ 31st ranked defense against tight ends and we could be looking at a breakout week for Engram. With all that said, Evan only scored 7.9 fantasy points against this same Eagles defense in Week 7 but, I’m obviously expecting a better performance on Sunday.
New Orleans Saints
The Saints have a chance to be the highest owned defense on the slate but, luckily we’re not worried about that for cash games. The San Francisco 49ers are having a severe Super Bowl hangover due to injuries, covid, and bad quarterback play. This is the perfect time for New Orleans to kick a dog while it’s down, and get some revenge for last year’s loss in the Superdome. The Saints come in as the 4th highest value at defense in our NFL Study Hub although they’re only .08 from being ranked 1st.
The Eagles are the 5th ranked value defense in our NFL Study Hub while taking on a New York Giants offense that ranks 26th in the league. Danny Dimes is very turnover prone and has been sacked 11 times in his last three games. Philly intercepted Jones once, sacked him three times, and forced a fumble for nine fantasy points in their Week 7 matchup.
Good luck to everyone this weekend. Let’s get this money!
