DraftHustle’s Top Fanduel Cash Game Plays of the week
Jared Goff – DET ($7,400) vs Bears
Jared Goff has been as big of a surprise lately as the Lion’s team themselves, particularly in his fantasy production. He has scored at least 21.6 Fanduel points in 3 of his last 4 games. In week 17, Goff faces a Chicago Bears’ secondary who has given up the most Fantasy points to QBS over the last 5 weeks. This game has by far the highest Vegas over under on the slate, so expect Goff to put up numbers in the Dome.
Travis Etienne Jr. – JAC ($7,700) vs Texans
After slacking for about a month, Travis Etienne seems to have gotten back on track. He has averaged 23 touches and 199,5 total yards over the last 2 weeks as the Jaguars have fought their way to the top of the AFC south. He faces the worst rushing defense in the league in the Houston Texans in week 17. Houston gives up the most rushing yards, the most total yards, and the most Fanduel PPG to RBS this season. Expect Etienne to get plenty of work and chances to score as the Jags should easily dispose of the Texans.
Amon-Ra St. Brown - SEA ($8,200) vs Bears
Amon-Ra St. Brown has been the model of consistency for the Lions this season., and he should continue to produce in week 17. He has scored at least 10.4 Fanduel points in his last 7 games while averaging over 16 PPG over that span. The Lions have the highest implied Vegas point total on this slate, so St. Brown should continue to put up numbers against a Bears defense that lead the league in yards per target allowed to WRs, and whom he torched earlier this year for 10 catches and 119 yards.
Travis Kelce – KC ($8,300) vs Broncos
Once again, we are leaning on Travis Kelce as our cash game TE. The Chiefs currently have the 2nd highest Vegas implied team total on the slate at 28.5, which correlates well with TE fantasy production. The Chiefs face the hapless Broncos in week 17, who were just torched by Tyler Higbee on Christmas day. The Denver secondary is weaker against TEs than they are against WRs. Kelce hasn’t scored in 4 weeks, but I expect that to change after this matchup.
Pittsburgh Steelers– ($3,800) vs Baltimore Ravens
TJ Watt returning has made a huge deal for this Pittsburgh Steelers defense. Outside of a beat down by the red-hot Bengals, Pittsburgh has allowed 14.1 PPG in the other 5 games since his return. This week, Pittsburgh faces the Ravens who will be without Lamar Jackson again, and they have averaged a putrid 11.5 PPG without their star QB. This game has the lowest Vegas Over/Under on the slate by a good margin, so it bodes well for a surging Steelers D/St at an amazing price.
