Week 15 FanDuel Cash-Game Picks

By Kevin English 2:32pm EST 12/16/22


QB

Dak Prescott, Cowboys ($7,500) at Jaguars

When it comes to the Dallas offense, much of the focus has been on the running game.

And for good reason.

Dak, though, has quietly put up 2+ passing scores in 5 of his past 6 outings. He surprisingly labored through last week’s close win vs. Houston, but Sunday should turn up a better outing.

The Jags sit T-29th in PFF’s coverage grades; 15th in run defense. While Dallas just lost RT Terance Steele, they’re expected to get back All-Pro Tyron Smith.

Call it a net positive.

Add in Dak’s price — he’s 3rd on the slate in $/point — and I think he’s a reasonable cash-game starting point.

Also consider: Justin Herbert ($8,300)


RB

Isiah Pacheco, Chiefs ($7,600) at Texans

Pacheco’s price is at an all-time high. But I’m not deterred — not in a matchup with Houston’s putrid run D.

The Texans enter the weekend allowing a league-high 27.4 FD PPG to enemy RBs. That’s almost a full point ahead of Seattle.

Pacheco, meanwhile, has hit 15 touches in 5 straight outings. Fire him up in a game that includes a Chiefs implied total of 31.75(!) points.

James Conner, Cardinals ($7,200) at Broncos

Conner’s usage makes him tough to ignore at $7.2K. Despite picking up a minor injury, the former Steeler played 95% of the snaps and hogged all but 2 backfield touches last week vs. New England.

Denver isn’t a cupcake matchup. But they sit mid-pack in Football Outsiders’ rush DVOA; 11th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs. Nothing too scary.

Also consider: Derrick Henry ($8,900), Miles Sanders ($7,800), Alvin Kamara ($7,600), Kevin Harris, $4,700 (if Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson are sidelined)


WR

Mike Williams, Chargers ($7,200) vs. Titans

Our own Jared Smola laid out the case for Williams on Twitter.

The numbers are irrefutable…

Lean into the pass-funnel matchup here — especially with Williams back to being a full participant in practice.

Chris Godwin, Bucs ($7,000) vs. Bengals

Godwin draws a Bengals defense down key defenders Mike Hilton (CB) and Trey Hendrickson (DL).

On the Bucs side, Julio Jones looks highly questionable after missing 2 practices with a knee injury. His absence would likely only shuffle a target or 2 Godwin's way. But the macro environment for this game should help keep Godwin’s volume high.

Playing alongside the league-leader in pass attempts, Godwin hasn’t dipped below 8 targets since Week 5. Plus, the Bucs enter Sunday as 3.5-point underdogs.

Elijah Moore, Jets ($5,600) vs. Lions

I know…the Jets will be without Mike White. But it at least sounds like Zach Wilson is in a good headspace following a multi-week benching.

“He approached it in the right way, his mindset is in the right place, he understood why this was needed and he made the most of it," OC Mike LaFleur said. “He’s done a good job with it, he’s attacked it, and that’s why we elevated him back to No. 2. He’s in a good place in terms of just that mental reset of not having to put all the time and thought into the scheme of what needed to get done on a Sunday and just go out there and play football, the essence of football, and having fun, and getting your completions, playing fundamentally sound in going about that.’’

New York will also miss Corey Davis following a Week 14 concussion -- so Moore’s volume looks secure in a plus matchup. The Lions sit 29th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to WRs.

Current projections have Moore for ~6 targets, with upside for more.

Also consider: CeeDee Lamb ($8,100), Mike Evans ($6,900), Nelson Agholor, $5,400 (if DeVante Parker and Jakobi Meyers are out).


TE

Cole Kmet, Bears ($5,300) vs. Eagles

On this slate, Kmet ranks T-5th at TE in raw projected points. His volume looks strong here because of 2 main factors:

- The Bears figure to have a pass-tilted game script in the 2nd half. The road Eagles are currently installed as 9-point favorites.

- Chicago is without Darnell Mooney and Chase Claypool. The slimmed-down offense is huge against a solid Philly TE defense.

Now coming off a bye, Kmet should also play alongside a healthier Justin Fields.

Also Consider: Travis Kelce ($8,000), Greg Dulcich ($5,600)


DEF

Broncos ($3,700) vs. Cardinals

Chargers ($3,400) vs. Titans
