NFL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 15/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Joe Mixon (CIN) (RB) – $8,500

  • Let the Wild Card games begin! I have a lot of plays that I like and it was hard deciding who to put as cover boy but I ended up going with Joe Mixon. He can easily get 20+ touches and offers the safest floor on this small two game slate.

Darren Waller (LV) (TE) – $6,300

  • Darren Waller got his feet wet since week 12. Having played a game before today can get the rust off him and play back to normal. He had 9 targets that game and I expect him to get 10+ in a Wild Card game. He should also play almost every snap.

Josh Jacobs (LV) (RB) – $7,200

  • Jacobs had a monster game against the Chargers and if the Raiders want to pull off the upset, he will need to perform like that again. I will roster most of my players from the CIN / LV game and starting with these three players is a good start for your cash game build.


Joe Mixon (CIN) (RB) – $7,100

  • Locking in Mixon as he is my favorite RB on the slate.

Tee Higgins (CIN) (WR) – $6,200

  • A little too cheap today for the upside he brings today. We can’t be picky on a 2 game slate and Higgins is viable in cash games today.

Darren Waller (LV) (TE) – $5,700

  • My second favorite play behind Mixon and cash viable on both sites.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Tee Higgins (CIN) (WR) – $6,900
