Our Week 7 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 7. 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 7.

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 7

Player Team Matchup $ Projection Value
Joe Flacco BAL NO $5,400 19.4 3.59
Philip Rivers LAC TEN $5,700 20.3 3.56
Deshaun Watson HOU @JAX $5,500 19.3 3.51
Cam Newton CAR @PHI $5,900 20.4 3.46
Matt Ryan ATL NYG $6,500 22.4 3.45
Blake Bortles JAX HOU $5,200 17.8 3.42
Alex Smith WAS DAL $5,100 17.4 3.41
Mitchell Trubisky CHI NE $5,600 19.0 3.39
Matthew Stafford DET @MIA $5,800 19.4 3.34

Pricey: Jared Goff ($6,600) is the most expensive quarterback, but he’s not prohibitive, and the 49ers are an easy matchup. San Francisco has given up the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, including multiple touchdowns ceded in five of six games.

Mid-tier price: Carson Wentz ($6,000) is quite cheap as 4.5-point home favorites against a Panthers defense that has given up an average of two passing scores and 278 passing yards per game over their last four contests.
