Week 14 DraftKings Picks

RB

Cash Cornerstones

Christian McCaffrey, Panthers ($10,300)

CMC turned in his 2nd worst game of the season last week … and still scored 17.2 DraftKings points. It was just his 2nd outing of the year with fewer than 21.7 points.

McCaffrey’s price dropped $200 for a rematch with a Falcons team that he scored 33.1 points against just a few weeks ago. He’s not a must-play in cash this week because there aren’t many cheap RBs or WRs to use. But it’s definitely worth trying to get CMC into lineups.

Leonard Fournette, Jaguars ($7,800)

McCaffrey leads all RBs with 96 targets. You know who ranks 2nd? This guy.

Fournette is averaging 6.8 targets per game. That number has spiked to 8.6 over the past 5 games. And that’s all on top of his 18.3 carries per game.

Fournette is still underpriced for the elite usage he’s seeing. He’s also in a nice spot this week at home for the Chargers, who rank 24th in Football Outsiders’ run defense DVOA, 26th in DK points allowed to RBs and 26th in adjusted fantasy points allowed.

Melvin Gordon, Chargers ($6,400)

Attacking the Jaguars run defense has worked all season. Even Peyton Barber tagged ‘em for 18.4 DK points last week. Jacksonville is allowing 5.3 yards per carry to RBs on the season — and 6.1 over the last 4 games. Plus they just sent LB Myles Jack to IR.

Gordon gets to feast on this run defense in Week 14. He’s carried 20+ times in 3 of his last 4 games and averaged a decent 3.3 targets over that span.
