Week 10 DraftKings Picks: NFL DFS lineup advice for cash games

Travis Kelce went all grown man on the Browns defense and led last week’s DraftKings cash lineup to 186 points on Sunday’s featured NFL DFS slate. That’s good for second-best mark this year on my cash game log, gliding out to an average of 160.14 and a low bar of 132.56. We’ll look to keeping hitting big with our Week 10 daily fantasy football picks.

DraftKings gifted us Christian McCaffrey and Alvin Kamara at sub-$8K last week; this week, Kamara goes for an extra $1,400, so we’re adapting. DK’s actually daring us to finally get off premium backs in cash. Will we play their game?

NFL Week 10 DraftKings Cash Lineup

QB Philip Rivers, LAC @ OAK ($6,000): If Rivers can muster what Nick Mullens just did in his debut against Oakland (260-plus yards, three TDs), that’s an easy 3.5X value, baby. The Raiders allow the fifth-most DraftKings points to quarterbacks, so I’m OK with accepting negative game script in cash for a reliable, cheap-ish QB facing a bottom-end defense.

RB Todd Gurley, LAR vs. SEA ($9,400): While $800 price bumps hit both Melvin Gordon and Kareem Hunt — not to mention the Kamara Correction — the $100 drop for Gurley is not hateful. Compare this to his $9,400 price earlier this year at Seattle and the $10K tag he drew the week after dropping 33 DK on the Hawks.

RB Dion Lewis, TEN vs. NE ($4,600): Lewis ranks top five among backs in both carries and catches when combining Weeks 7 and 9 to excluding Tennessee’s Week 8 bye. Tennessee is a home dog, but Lewis’s usage has shown little sensitivity to game script whether trailing the Chargers or holding late in Dallas — the latter not priced in. Gotta love the Monday night discount.


WR Davante Adams, GB vs. MIA ($7,800): Adams cost the same last week in facing a shadow from Stephon Gilmore, who’s only behind only Tre’Davious White in yards allowed per cover snap (17 CBs at 80 percent snaps, per Pro Football Focus data). Both Fins outside corners rank bottom half in that measure among 78 CBs at 200-plus reps.

WR Larry Fitzgerald, ARI @ KC ($5,400): Fitzgerald ranked seventh among receivers in targets during the three weeks heading into Arizona’s bye. Playing multiple scores down nearly all the time has done wonders for his receiving volume, and now the Cards visit Arrowhead hovering around three-score dogs.

WEEK 10 DFS GPP LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKings

WR Adam Humphries, TB vs. WAS ($3,900): This is a mint price for a receiver running routes on nearly every pass thrown for the YOLO Bucs. The floor’s rare for sub-$4K, as Humphries is seeing at least eight looks a game recently and ranks fifth among all receivers in targets over the past three weeks.

TE David Njoku, CLE vs. ATL ($4,200): Njoku finds his way back to my cash lineup after I bailed last week to see if his volume remains secure in Cleveland. And, yes, Njoku’s still totally palatable near $4K in the TE wasteland. On the Sunday featured slate, the only tight end with more targets is Travis Kelce at $2,800 more.

FLEX Tevin Coleman, ATL @ CLE ($5,400): The savings at tight end let us secure a decent floor at FLEX, as Coleman’s hit double-digit touches in all but one game this year. The 5-68-2 line through the air last week is also encouraging, helping with floor in the unfathomable circumstance of the Browns amassing a big lead.

D/ST Chiefs vs. Cardinals ($3,300): Josh Rosen showed promising signs down the stretch against San Francisco, but the rookie still lands bottom seven in both sacks and picks per dropback among 33 QBs with 150-plus dropbacks. Also just rather cheap for a defense opening as a three-score home favorite.
