Week 15 FanDuel Cash-Game Picks

By Kevin English 1:29pm EST 12/15/23

Top Plays for Head-to-Head and 50/50 Contests

Quarterback

Matthew Stafford, Lions ($7,200) vs. Commanders

There should be no hesitation over using Stafford this week.

The veteran ranks fourth in fantasy scoring over the past three weeks. Now, he gets a Commanders pass D that’s allowed at least 22 fantasy points to a QB in nine of their past ten games.

Also consider: Sam Howell

Running Back

Rachaad White, Buccaneers ($7,600) at Packers

White pops up No. 2 in RB $/point. Fueled by high-end volume, he’s hit 12 fantasy points in eight straight.

Now with Chris Godwin banged up, White’s volume should remain strong against Green Bay. The Packers also sit 25th in rush defense DVOA. 

Antonio Gibson, Commanders ($5,600) at Rams

Gibson should be fresh following a Week 14 bye. And that’s good news, as he’s the likely lead back with Brian Robinson (hamstring) out.

Perhaps we see rookie Chris Rodriguez mix in on early downs, but Gibson projects as the clear passing down back. That could help generate some late-game production given Washington’s standing as 6.5-point road underdogs.

Also consider: Christian McCaffrey, Raheem Mostert (if De’Von Achane is out)  

Wide Receiver

Puka Nacua, Rams ($8,000) vs. Commanders

Nacua has earned between 7 and 8 targets in six straight. His efficiency projects well this week against a Washington pass D sitting last in DVOA, WR yards allowed, and WR YPC.

Current projections have the rookie for 8.4 targets, while the Rams are implied for 28.5 points – second highest on the slate.

Jaylen Waddle, Dolphins ($7,000) vs. Jets

Avoiding WRs against the Jets is typically a good strategy. No team has allowed fewer fantasy points to the position.

But with Tyreek Hill banged up, this week looks different. He missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday and might be limited come Sunday, if active.

Plus, Waddle tallied 8 catches for 114 yards at the Jets just a few weeks back.

Jayden Reed, Packers ($6,100) vs. Buccaneers

Since Week 10, Reed's hit 13 FD points in all but one game. The absence of Aaron Jones has helped him handle nine carries over the past four games, leading to a pair of scores.

Jones should return this week, but now A.J. Dillon is highly questionable with a broken thumb.

Also note: Reed has averaged 7.5 targets in four games without Christian Watson. Watson (hamstring) is likely to miss Sunday’s game vs. the Bucs.

Also consider: Mike Evans, Cooper Kupp, Brandon Aiyuk, Drake London

Tight End 

Dalton Kincaid, Bills ($5,600) vs. Cowboys

Kincaid’s price dropped $200 following a poor outing vs. Kansas City (5 catches, 21 yards).

That game coincided with the return of Dawson Knox. But here’s why you should be encouraged…

Kincaid actually led Bills pass catchers in routes. His 8 targets ranked second on the team.

So the rookie is simply underpriced for his current role. And despite a tough matchup, Buffalo’s implied for a healthy 26.25 points.

Also consider: David Njoku

Defense 

Rams ($4,300) vs. Commanders 

Also consider: Saints
