NFL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 16/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Darrel Williams (KC) (RB) – $6,600

  • If you didn’t join the DFS Crunch squad, definitely check out our Discord channel to see our success posts from other members. It’s free to join and you can see that we crushed last night in NFL. Let’s do it again today! With CEH ruled out, Darrel Williams will be an auto lock but that’s only if he is in as well. He is listed questionable but if he is able to suit up, he is by far my favorite play on the slate on both sites.

Tyreek Hill (KC) (WR) – $8,000

  • Tyreek did not look good last game as he injured his foot in pregame warmups. He was limping the entire game and just didn’t look right. However, he had a week to recover which is good news but the bad news is that he was limited in practice. If you are uncomfortable and worried, you can definitely fade him but a healthy Tyreek could make or break the slate.

Ke’Shawn Vaughn (TB) (RB) – $5,400

  • If Vaughn is RB1 with 4 Net out, this price will be too cheap for the role he would be given today. Make sure to keep an eye out with updates throughout this day.


Darrel Williams (KC) (RB) – $5,200

  • Lock if ruled in.

Dallas Goedert (PHI) (TE) – $4,400

  • If the game script goes as expected, the Eagles should be trailing which means Hurts will throw more. If Hurts will throw more, he should target his number 1 option, Dallas Goedert. He is a little too cheap on DK as well.

Tyreek Hill (KC) (WR) – $7,300

  • Play if you think he is healthy, fade if you think he isn’t.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Patrick Mahomes (KC) (QB) – $8,700


  • CeeDeeLamb (DAL) (WR) – $6,300
  • Eli Mitchell (SF) (RB) – $5,700
