Our Week 15 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 15. 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 15.

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 15

Player Team Matchup $ Projection Value
Jameis Winston TB @BAL $5,600 23.6 4.21
Ben Roethlisberger PIT NE $6,600 26.1 3.95
Cam Newton CAR NO $5,900 23.3 3.95
Sam Darnold NYJ HOU $4,400 16.9 3.84
Patrick Mahomes KC LAC $6,900 26.5 3.84
Aaron Rodgers GB @CHI $5,700 21.3 3.74
Nick Foles PHI @LAR $4,500 16.5 3.67
Josh Johnson WAS @JAX $4,300 15.2 3.53
Lamar Jackson BAL TB $5,900 20.7 3.51
Matt Ryan ATL ARZ $6,100 21.3 3.49

Pricey: Ben Roethlisberger ($6,600). Roethlisberger is at home against the Patriots in a game that opened with an over/under of 49.5 but quickly rose to 52 (as of this writing). The Pats are a bottom-half team in terms of fantasy points per dropback allowed to quarterbacks and have allowed the 10th-most raw points to the position.

Mid-tier price: Lamar Jackson ($5,900). Jackson’s rushing ability puts him in play nearly every week — you can expect about 10 rushing points from him each week at a minimum — and he’s been throwing the ball an average of 22 times per game over the last month. He has a great Week 15 matchup against Tampa, who have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per dropback against.
