Week 17 DraftKings Picks

RB

Cash Cornerstones

Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys ($8,000)

The Redskins have been absolutely bashed on the ground over the past 3 weeks, with RBs combining for 495 rushing yards and 3 TDs on 7.1 yards per carry. That, plus QB Dak Prescott’s shoulder injury, should mean a busy and productive afternoon for Zeke.

Note, too, that Elliott’s passing-game volume has spiked lately. He’s averaged 6.5 targets, 4.8 catches and 39.5 receiving yards over the past 4 weeks.

Alvin Kamara, Saints ($7,800)

We’ve been picking on the Panthers run defense for over a month now. We’re not going to stop this week.

Carolina has coughed up a pathetic 850 rushing yards and 10 TDs on 6.5 yards per carry over the last 5 games. Six different RBs have scored 15+ PPR points during that stretch, including big outings of 27.7 and 26.7.

Kamara got off the TD schneid last week and should keep rolling on Sunday.

Damien Williams, Chiefs ($4,700)

Here’s your money-saver.

Williams returned from his rib injury last week and immediately stepped back in as Kansas City’s lead back. He played 53% of the offensive snaps and handled 16 carries and 3 targets.

Note that in his 2 previous healthy games, Williams totaled 31 carries and 7 targets. So he’s a nice volume bet at this price tag, especially after RB Spencer Ware was placed on IR this week.

Williams also gets a plus matchup against a Chargers defense sitting 20th in DraftKings points allowed to RBs, 25th in adjusted fantasy points allowed and 23rd in Football Outsiders’ run defense rankings.
