DFS Week 14 Plays

The playoffs have finally arrived!!! Hopefully we helped you get that “Bye Week” like we promised. If so you have some time off to play a little DFS ... which is where I come in!
 

Premium Plays ($7,500 or more)

Derrick Henry (TEN) $9,100: Henry is a man amongst boys this season, proving the end to last season for him wasn’t just a fluke. He’s gone over 140 yards in each of the last 3 weeks, and over 20 points in his last four games. I cannot wait to see what he does against this Oakland defense!
 

 

Solid Starts ($6,000-$7,400)

Melvin Gordon (LAC) $7,300:  Gordon is back to getting a ton of work on the ground, and is up against a defense that has been torched as of late. Jacksonville has given up over 200 rushing yards in 3 of the last four games, and just gave up two rushing TD’s to Payton Barber…

 

Ryan Tannehill (TEN) $7,300: Since taking over in week 7 Ryan Tannehill has been QB5, and led the Titans to a 5-1 record. Over the last five weeks he is second, only to Lamar Jackson, in points per drop back with a blistering .77 ppd. He’ll be up against the Raiders defense who has all but mailed it in for the season!

Cheap Plugs ($5,900 and under)

Vance McDonald (PIT) $5,800: McDonald has had a very underwhelming year with all of the preseason hype surrounding him. Fortunately for him, it looks like the found somewhat of a competent QB that can get him the ball, and he’ll be up against the worst defense against opposing TE’s in the league. 

Alexander Mattison (MIN) $5,100: Even if Dalvin Cook ends up playing this week against  Detroit, he will for sure be on a pitch count. Mattison should have a big day with an uptick in work, and facing a terrible rush defense!
