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

As the NFL season goes along, it becomes a bit harder to field top-tier cash games. Sure, you can target the lopsided matchups on the Week 10 DFS slate and find some value plays, but the whole goal of a cash game lineup is to take as few risks as possible. Unfortunately, the pricing for top producers continues to rise in daily fantasy football contests, and it becomes imperative to spend up for one or two studs. That means trusting some riskier sleepers who could pan out but might be more boom-or-bust that most would like. Our Week 10 DraftKings cash lineup is trusting some of those risky plays, but our floor is still high because of the top producers we’re landing.

For the first time in a while, Justin Herbert is not our cash game QB. Instead, we’re spending up a bit more to get Josh Allen in a favorable matchup where he can use his legs to rack up some points. We’re also spending up for the highest-priced receiver on the slate, and from there, we’re spreading around the rest of our money. We have four lineup choices that cost $4,200 or less, but for various reasons, they should have a chance to work. We’ll soon see if they actually do, but at least the strategy is sound.

DraftKings Week 10 Picks: NFL DFS cash lineup

QB Josh Allen, Bills @ Cardinals ($7,500). After a few rocky weeks, Allen returned to his early-season MVP-like form against the Seahawks, racking up over 400 passing yards and four total TDs to post a season-high 39 DraftKings points. Thanks to his rushing floor (26.8 rushing yards per game) and his ability to score near the end zone (five rushing TDs on the year), Allen will more often that not score enough points to keep a cash lineup alive. The Cardinals just struggled to contain Tua Tagovailoa on the ground (35 yards) and let him throw for 248 yards and two TDs. Allen should do better than that, and he’s a solid value as the fourth-highest-priced QB on the slate.

RB James Robinson, Jaguars vs. Packers ($6,600). Every week, Robinson seems to have a great matchup, and this one is no different. The undrafted rookie will get to take on the Packers, who have allowed the second-most DK points per game to RBs this season (35). Robinson has logged double-digit DK points in every game and is averaging 19.9 touches, 100.6 total yards, and 0.9 TDs per game. He’s as safe a pick as there is, and even if the Jaguars can’t keep pace with the Packers, Robinson should still have a chance to gash them for yardage and a TD.

WEEK 10 DFS TOURNAMENT LINEUPS: DraftKings | FanDuel

RB Antonio Gibson, Washington @ Lions ($5,600). In all but one of his games this season, Gibson has totaled at least 9.5 DK points. That may not seem like a lot, but given that he’s averaging just 14.1 touches per game, that’s solid. Gibson’s workload should continue to increase as the season goes along, and the Lions have allowed 38 DK points per game to RBs this season, good for the most in the NFL. That includes a league-high five receiving TDs to RBs. Gibson, a former college receiver, should have a chance to take advantage of that and do some damage through the air.

WR Davante Adams, Packers vs. Jaguars ($9,000). Adams has played in six games this year. In four of those six games, he has at least 30.3 DK points. In one of the two that he didn’t, he got hurt. The other was a blowout in his first game back from an injury. Adams is averaging a ridiculous 11.5 targets per game, the most in the league at any position, and he should continue to be Aaron Rodgers’ top target against a young Jaguars secondary. He should have another huge game, so we’re paying top-ticket pricing for him. We’re able to do that, in part, due to great value further down the slate at receiver. 

WEEK 10 DFS CASH LINEUPS: FanDuel

WR Robby Anderson, Panthers vs. Buccaneers ($6,100). Anderson has yet to see fewer than five targets in a game this season. All told, he’s averaging 8.9 targets, 6.7 catches, and 83.4 yards per game. He has only failed to log double-digit points once, and the only reason his price is so low is because he has only scored one TD on the season. Touchdowns matter a bit less in full-point PPR contests like the ones on DraftKings, so Anderson is a great pick for cash lineups against a Bucs defense that has struggled to contain passing offenses in recent weeks.

WR Jalen Reagor, Eagles @ Giants ($4,200). Here’s one of our better spend-down opportunities. The Eagles have been banged-up at receiver this year, but Reagor returned before the bye and caught a TD and a two-point conversion. He has averaged 4.7 targets per game this year, and since he is a deep threat, all it takes is one big play for him to return value. The Giants have allowed the fifth-most receiving yards to WRs (1,629) and even if Alshon Jeffery returns and Travis Fulgham serves as the No. 1 receiver, Reagor should eat into a chunk of the available targets and yardage.

WEEK 10 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

TE Austin Hooper, Browns vs. Texans ($3,900). Hooper (appendix) should return from a two-game absence following the Browns’ bye, and he will walk right into a solid matchup against the Texans. Houston has allowed the eighth-most DK points per game to TEs at a mark of 14.8, and Hooper has averaged five catches for 47.7 yards over his past three outings with 7.7 targets per game. Hooper should garner more attention from Baker Mayfield with Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) done for the season, and this sub-$4K price seems too low for him.

FLEX Danny Amendola, Lions vs. Washington ($3,900). With Kenny Golladay (hip) absent against the Vikings, Amendola saw a season-high 10 targets and turned them into seven catches for 77 yards. Golladay could miss Sunday’s game against Washington, and if that happens, Amendola will be in line for an increased role again. Washington’s defense has been good against WRs this year, but Amendola is priced so cheaply and can attack the middle of the field, which is Washington’s biggest weakness. If he can catch a handful of passes, he’ll do enough to buoy this lineup.

WEEK 10 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

D/ST New Orleans Saints vs. 49ers ($3,000). The 49ers are going to have more offensive weapons on hand than they did when they faced the Packers, but even with some combination of Brandon Aiyuk (COVID), Deebo Samuel (hamstring), and Raheem Mostert (ankle) potentially back in the fold, they’ll have a tough time moving the ball on the Saints. New Orleans just held the high-flying Buccaneers’ offense to three points and consistently pressured Tom Brady into mistakes. They should be able to do the same thing to Nick Mullens.
