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 writeup, 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 both FanDuel and DraftKings.)

Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys are rolling out starters for a meaningless game as head coach Jason Garrett looks to do anything for the chance at another winning season for his resume. The Eagles will likely be resting most of their top players. This is great news for Prescott, who is somehow one of the cheapest QBs on the entire slate on DK. The Eagles defense is aggressive and can be beaten on the perimeter when their playing their starters (see: Eli Manning throwing for 434 yards in Week 15) and they will be playing without their best players in this game. Prescott is the premier play on the entire slate.
