Week 1 DFS Fanduel Cash Plays
DraftHustle’s Top Fanduel Cash Plays of the week
Jalen Hurts – PHI ($8,000) vs Lions
Jalen Hurts has the weapons and the talent to put up numbers every week in DFS, and we will bank on him to do just that, starting week 1. The Eagles face the Detroit Lions who have never had a good defense, so Hurts will be able to exploit them with his arms and his legs. Jalen Hurts running ability gives him a high floor in cash games, and he should be involved in all of their touchdowns, giving him a very high ceiling.
Saquon Barkley – NYG ($6,800) vs Titans
Saquon is 2 years removed from his ACL tear and looks primed to get back to his rookie year form. Saquon is as healthy he will be all season and will be used early and often. I expect 20 touches for Barkley, and I want to use him at the best value he will be all season.
Ja’Marr Chase – PIT ($8,200) vs Steelers
Ja’Marr Chase was dominant as a rookie, and that trend will continue in his second year. The Bengals face the Steelers who will be without Pro Bowl Corner Joe Haden. The Bengals gave the 5th highest implied Vegas Team total (25.75 Points) so they will get in the endzone, and Chase has a great chance to score in week 1.
Travis Kelce – KC ($8,000) vs Cardinals
The departure of Tyreek Hill from Kansas City has left Travis Kelce as the unquestioned number one target for Patrick Mahomes. He will get as many targets as he can handle in week 1. The Chiefs have the highest Vegas implied total (29.75 points) in the game with the highest Vegas Over/Under (53.5), so points will be scored in bunches. Lock Kelce in all Cash Lineups in week 1.
San Francisco 49ers – ($5,000) vs Chicago Bears
The Bears offensive line is pathetic, so the 49ers front 4 will be on Justin Fields like white on rice. The Bears have the lowest implied Vegas team total, so the 49ers should limit the scoring, while having the chance for multiple sacks and turnovers.
