Cash Game DFS Lineup Tips for NFL Week 3
There are a ton of cash games available this week for Week 3 in the NFL that can be played at Draftkings, FanDuel, FantasyDraft and Fan Picks.
This week for our Cash Game lineup tips, we are going to give out two of our top options at each position that we feel are the best option for Cash Game lineups.
Hopefully by putting a few of these guys in your lineup, it will help you win a few of those Cash Games and 50/50’s.
These player suggestions are strictly dedicated to Cash Games and 50/50’s.
Drew Brees (New Orleans Saints) – We get a bit of a salary cut this week on Brees and that must be taken advantage of. Brees is still going to be throwing the ball and is still going to look to play his style of game.
Cam Newton (Carolina Panthers) – Someone explain to me why Newton's salary went down this week vs. last week? Much like Brees, we get Newton as a bit of a discount. Newton will get you points with his legs running the ball and also with his arm in the passing game.
Kareem Hunt (Kansas City Chiefs) – The hype train in Kansas City has the words PATRICK MAHOMES written on the side of it and that means everyone will be on the rookie Quarterback. That will leave the Chiefs Running Back very low owned and overlooked. They are playing at home this week in a game that they should be leading in the second half.
Giovanni Bernard (Cincinnati Bengals) – Joe Mixon has already been ruled out for Sunday's game, which means a heavy workload for Giovanni Bernard. Bernard is a very capable Running Back on a high scoring team. The Bengals offense has really come on strong and now face a Carolina defense that hasn't really been itself this year. I expect a fairly big game Bernard and will be throwing him in many of my cash game lineups.
Michael Thomas (New Orleans Saints) – Yes he is very expensive but he is as reliable as any player in DFS. He has 30 targets in 2 weeks, which is a cash game gold mine. Thomas and the Saints could get into a big shootout this week and he is the top target of Drew Brees. If this game turns into a shootout, you're going to want a few of these guys in your lineups.
AJ Green (Cincinnati Bengals) – If you're playing Gio than fade this one but I think Green is off to a great year and is what we are going to see this year. Green caught 3 touchdowns last week and has made sure everyone knows that he is the man in Cincinnati. Green is just as good as the top level guys but you get him at a discount. Sign me up for some AJ Green this week.
Zach Ertz (Philadelphia Eagles) – Ertz gets Carson Wentz back this week and that is a big boost to all Philadelphia receivers but for Ertz, its huge. Ertz is Wentz's safety blanket and when he gets in a jam, he will look to the check down and the man falling off of protection in the flat. Wentz will have issues with his control early on as he has been off the field for quite some time but that should affect Ertz as he won't be going on many long routes.
Philadelphia Eagles – I don't know how the Colts are going to score on the Eagles. Injuries are affecting the Colts across the board and it is going to affect this offensive unit on Sunday. I could see Philadelphia posting a shutout in this game and getting you a nice chunk of defensive points.
