Our Week 10 DraftKings DFS cash guide helps you build an optimal lineup by giving you the best player picks and sleepers based on matchup and expected workload.

Below are some of the players I’m considering for my cash lineups in Week 10. Some things may change between now and Sunday (injury news later in the week is one of the most important things to pay attention to for DFS), but this should give you a good starting point when building cash lineups for Week 10.

The “Top Value” charts above show the top values based on projections and salary. However, not all of the players included in the charts should be considered cash game options. The charts are meant to show you — at a glance — which players have the most favorable salary-to-projection ratios, but when selecting players for your cash lineup, other factors need to be considered.


DraftKings – Top QB Values – Week 10

Player Team Matchup $ Projection Value
Cam Newton CAR @PIT $6,100 25.8 4.23
Marcus Mariota TEN NE $4,700 18.0 3.83
Aaron Rodgers GB MIA $6,400 23.9 3.73
Ryan Fitzpatrick TB WAS $5,900 21.8 3.69
Carson Wentz PHI DAL $5,700 20.7 3.63
Ben Roethlisberger PIT CAR $6,300 22.8 3.62
Derek Carr OAK LAC $4,700 16.9 3.60
Blake Bortles JAX @IND $4,900 17.6 3.59
Mitchell Trubisky CHI DET $5,600 19.9 3.55
Andrew Luck IND JAX $5,500 19.2 3.49

Pricey: Patrick Mahomes ($7,200) has now topped 30 DraftKings points in four straight weeks. It doesn’t matter who he plays or where he plays them — he’s going to return at least 3x value on his salary (probably closer to 4x).

Mid-tier price: Philip Rivers ($6,000) can be considered a cash game lock for me this week. With multiple touchdowns in every single game this season, Rivers has been a picture of consistency. His streak will no doubt continue in Week 10 against a Raiders defense that has given up the most fantasy points per dropback to opposing quarterbacks.
