Week 18 DraftKings Cash-Game Picks


Ken Walker, Seahawks ($6,400)

The Seahawks have fed Walker 26 and 23 carries the past 2 weeks. With their season on the line, expect another big workload for the rookie on Sunday.

Walker gets a Rams defense that’ll again be without stud DL Aaron Donald. With Donald out the past 5 weeks, the Rams rank 26th in Football Outsiders’ run defense DVOA and have coughed up 4.7 yards per carry to RBs.

Cam Akers, Rams ($6,200)

Akers has emerged as a workhorse down the stretch. He’s registered a 75+% snap rate and 60+% route rate in 3 straight, totaling 54 carries and 7 targets over that span. Akers ranks 13th among RBs in expected PPR points per game over the last 3 and has tallied 13.0, 37.7 and 17.3 DK points.

Akers wraps up his season in a plus matchup against the Seahawks, who rank 28th in Football Outsiders’ run defense DVOA over the last 5 weeks and 28th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs on the season.

Najee Harris, Steelers ($6,100)

Looking healthier than he has all season, Harris has racked up 62 carries and 12 targets over the past 3 weeks. Only 3 RBs have tallied more expected PPR points over that span. Harris has turned that volume into 14.6, 15.5 and 23.3 DK points.

Harris’ Steelers need to win to keep their playoff hopes alive and get a bad Browns run defense that ranks 29th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs.

Also consider: Miles Sanders ($5,900), Tyler Allgeier ($5,600), Zack Moss ($5,200), Jonathan Williams ($4,300)
