Finding bargains and values in DFS is the key to any winning roster, both in cash games and tournaments. Our goal today is to find you the best bargains for your cash games and tournaments. We will specify what games to use each bargain in and how to capitalize on them in each given week.

High ownership is to be expected from some of these bargains, and we will touch in that in the write up, so they should be used in cash games. However, some of these players are also excellent buys for tournaments and won’t have high ownership percentages. Generally speaking, quarterback is the one position where ownership tends to be spread out the most — in other words, feel free using these bargains both in tournaments and cash games.

(Unless otherwise specified, these suggests are for FanDuel and DraftKings.)

Mitchell Trubisky, QB, Chicago Bears

When digging for bargains at the QB position in the Week 16 slate, it’s not an easy task. The lower-priced options with upside like Jimmy Garoppolo draw the Jaguars and top matchup plays like Blake Bortles are priced high. Trubisky has found a bit of a groove in two of his past three games and arguably draws his easiest matchup since taking over as the starting QB. The Browns rank 30th in pass rush, so Trubisky should have all day, and they rank No. 19 in pass coverage overall. They have also allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing QBs this season. At the near-minimum salary, it will be tough for Trubisky to not return value on his price.
