NFL DFS: Week 15 DraftKings Plays
We’re hitting the home stretch. How have you been doing in your cash games this season?
If you’re playing cash games on DraftKings, your goal for each player on your roster should be to score three times his salary.
For example, Kenneth Dixon is $3,800 on DraftKings this week. For Dixon to score three times his salary, he would need to produce 11.4 points (3.800 x 3).
Finding players who will score three times their salary can be difficult, but a stable set of projections should be your starting point.
Last year, Gridiron Experts’ projections were very efficient in finding these players — we’ll call them our Gridiron 3X.
Our projections are posted every Tuesday morning by Jody Smith — you can find them here.
In the table below, you’ll see how often the average player surpassed 3X his salary last season — only players who were projected for more than 5.0 points were included to remove injured players and those with minor roles. Next to it, you’ll see how often our Gridiron 3X guys surpassed 3X their salary. The difference between the two is in the final column:
So who fits the criteria in Week 15?
San Francisco has allowed the third-most DraftKings points to opposing quarterbacks this season, so this is a dream matchup for Matt Ryan. If he doesn’t score 3X his salary this week, it will be a major surprise.
