Week 1 FanDuel Cash-Game Picks

By Kevin English 2:09pm EDT 9/11/20


Each week this season, I’ll go over the FanDuel cash game plays to focus on. Remember that we’re working with a .5 PPR format and a starting lineup of:

1 QB

2 RBs

3 WRs

1 TE

1 FLEX

1 DEF

Good luck!


Running back

Christian McCaffrey, Panthers ($10,000) vs. Oakland

It’s easy to find values given that FanDuel’s pricing came out weeks ago. So don’t hesitate to start your lineup with McCaffrey, who still comes out #1 on the main slate in our FanDuel $/point rankings.

Josh Jacobs, Raiders ($8,200) at Carolina

Jacobs enters year 2 with perhaps the best matchup on the board. Carolina allowed the 4th most rushing yards to opponents last year and profile as a worse unit entering Week 1. Oakland, installed as 3-point favorites, figures to feed Jacobs 20+ touches.

Now, the 2nd-year back might not have the highest receiving ceiling. Oakland rosters a capable receiving back behind Jacobs in Jalen Richard. Still, receiving upside matters less in FanDuel’s .5 PPR format.
