NFL DFS DraftKings Studs for Cash Games for Week 10 Results
Carson Wentz – QB – Indianapolis Colts – $5.9k
Carson scored 7.1 DraftKings points in what has to be one of my worst choices of the year. I couldn’t fault anyone for tweeting at me that I’m an idiot. Wentz went 22-34 for 180 yards which I’m not even mad at. I’m laughing. Thank goodness for Week 11.
Najee Harris – RB – Pittsburgh Steelers – $7.9k
Harris got the opportunities I was looking for but he was only able to convert the chances into 20.3 DK points. I was expecting 28+ points so a miss but not a Wentz.
NFL DFS FanDuel Studs for Cash Games for Week 10 Results
Kirk Cousins – QB – Minnesota Vikings – $7.6k
Cousins scored 17.46 FanDuel points and finished as the 7th overall quarterback on the slate. I thought Cousins would break the 20-point mark so I was off there. It wasn’t a break backing performance so I’ll take it.
Austin Ekeler – RB – Los Angeles Chargers – $8.6k
Oh did someone mention back breaking performances? Well Ekleler’s 13.4 FD points were pretty painful. He had 14 touches for a total of 59 yards and a touchdown. That doesn’t get it done in any format.
NFL DFS DraftKings Studs for Tournaments for Week 10 Results
Dak Prescott – QB – Dallas Cowboys – $6.9k
I called this a smash spot for Prescott and he delivered as the highest scoring quarterback on the slate. He outscored Josh Allen by 1.4 points while having a price tag that was 1k lower.
Antonio Brown – WR – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – $6.1k
Brown didn’t end up playing so this is a wash. Now there’s news that Antonio submitted a fake Covid-19 vax card, and he’s still dealing with his injury. It looks like it’s a wrap on him for awhile.
NFL DFS FanDuel Studs for Tournaments for Week 10 Results
Justin Herbert– QB – Los Angeles Chargers – $8k
Herbert put up 13 FD points for anyone that rostered him. I had too much faith in the Vikings and Chargers having a shootout, and the people I liked in the game didn’t go off.
A.J. Brown – WR – Tennessee Titans – $7.6k
I’m literally laughing out loud. Let us never speak of Week 10 again. Brown put up 2.8 fantasy points with one catch, and one rush for 23 yards. To Week 11!!
Big shout out to Team Rise or Fall coach Dabbingpuggle with the huge takedown:
NFL DFS DraftKings Studs for Cash Games for Week 11
Tua Tagovailoa – QB – Miami Dolphins – $5.5k
Tua rates as the 3rd highest value at the quarterback position in our NFL DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. He and the Dolphins draw a matchup against the division rival New York Jets and Joe Flacco. The Jets rank 26th against the quarterback position so it’s a great spot for Tagovailoa who’s been playing better than public perception.
A.J. Dillon – RB – Green Bay Packers – $6.2k
Dillon will take over the starting running back role due to the injury to Aaron Jones. He’s the highest value at the running back position in the Study Hub. We’re also projecting him for 20+ touches which is great for my cash lineup.

Derek Carr – QB – Las Vegas Raiders – $7.2k
Carr is the 4th highest value at the quarterback position in the TROF NFL DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. He’s facing a Bengals team that ranks 27th in the NFL against the quarterback position. Carr has scored 19+ points in three of his last four games, and I think he makes that four out of five this weekend.
Miles Gaskin – RB – Miami Dolphins – $6.2k
Gaskin is the highest rated running back on the slate in our NFL Study Hub for FanDuel. His matchup this week is against the league’s worst defense against the running back position. If there was ever a week to count on Gaskin, this is it.
NFL DFS DraftKings Studs for Tournaments for Week 11
Dak Prescott– QB – Dallas Cowboys – $7.2k
We’re currently projecting Dak for 21.86 DK points in our NFL DFS Study Hub. Vegas currently lists this game with a 56 point implied game total, the highest on the slate. Prescott bounced back last week after a miserable game against the Denver Broncos. I’m looking for him to have another big game against Kansas City’s 28th ranked defense against the QB position.
Stefon Diggs – WR – Buffalo Bills – $7.9k
Diggs is the 4th highest projected wide receiver in our NFL DFS Study for DraftKings. He’s playing in a game with a 49 point implied total, against a team that ranks 28th against the wide receiver position. I won’t go as far as smash spot but there is great potential here.
NFL DFS FanDuel Studs for Tournaments for Week 11
Josh Allen – QB – Buffalo Bills – $8.8k
Allen and the Bills take on the Indianapolis Colts and their 32nd ranked defense against the quarterback position. I’m expecting the Buffalo offense to get a few extra opportunities after the defense turns over Carson Wentz a few times. Allen is also the 2nd highest value at the QB position in our NFL DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. He’s checking a lot of boxes for me on this slate.
Davante Adams – WR – Green Bay Packers – $8.4k
Adams is the highest projected wide receiver on DraftKings and FanDuel in our Study Hub. The Minnesota Vikings rank 25th in the NFL against the wide receiver position, as if Davante needed any other advantages. Take a look at the first two sentences and you’ll see that Adams makes a lot of sense this weekend.
Alright folks that’s it for Week 8! Hit me up on Twitter if you want to talk some DFS. Good luck to everyone!
