NFL DFS BEST PLAYS FOR WEEK 10 (FANTASY FOOTBALL)
Each week we will review some of the content found in the DFS Pass and discuss some of our most confident plays heading into Sunday. A lot can change over the weekend, especially with injury news (See Betz’s Injury Blitz podcast) and roster percentages shifting who is in-or-out before roster lock time. Let’s review.

Locked-In Cash Plays
DraftKings Cash Picks / FanDuel Cash Picks
Borg – Joe Mixon is locked in my cash lineup at a way too cheap $6,200. He’s averaging 19.5 opportunities per game and the Texans are one of the worst run defenses in the league. Last week, Rachaad White was the RB1 against them and on the season, they’ve allowed the 4th most rushing TDs in the NFL. As a 6.5-point home favorite, it feels too easy this week plugging him in. He has 90(!) percent of the CIN rush attempts this year. That is insane.
Betz – Ja’Marr Chase‘s Q tag looms large on this slate, but it sounds like he’s going to play, and I expect him to be effective. He already leads the NFL in targets per game and now Tee Higgins is out. With Cincy logging some insane pass rates in recent weeks, Chase should be peppered with targets in a good matchup against Houston. Of course, we need to monitor news ahead of lock. If we get negative news on Chase, we can easily drop down to Amon-Ra for a few hundred dollars cheaper.
DraftKings Core Plays
These are the 3-5 players at each position we have mixed in our cash player pool. Based on salaries, late news, and budget constraints, it is guaranteed you will not be able to fit in all of them. But their high floors and team-implied totals make them great plays for the week in both cash & GPPs.
These are simply in order of favorite core players. You obviously won’t be able to fit all in a cash lineup and there are salary tradeoffs for paying up at each position.
