NFL Week 14 action is here. Here are five recommended plays to help you win big in DraftKings GPP and cash game competitions.


CHIGOZIEM OKONKWO, TENNESSEE TITANS ($2,700 ON DRAFTKINGS) VS. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS

  • Tennessee has a 22.5-point implied team total, sitting as 4-point home favorites over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
  • PFF’s ownership projections expect a 0.0% rostership rate for Tennessee rookie tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo (79.5 PFF receiving grade), and his $2,700 DraftKings salary is just $200 over the minimum.
  • Okonkwo should be aggressively considered for both cash games and GPP tournaments. His big-play upside and overall receiving profile mesh perfectly with Jacksonville’s dreadful linebacking corps. 
  • The table below ranks Okonkwo’s receiving data in parentheses among 37 NFL tight ends with at least 25 targets.
PFF Receiving Grade Per Routes Run %: Tgts – Yds Catch % – Contested Catch % Yds/Rec. aDot – YAC/Rec. Missed Tackles Forced Rec. 15-Plus-Yd Pass Plays
79.5 (No. 5) 25.0% (No. 3) – 2.75 (No. 1) 60.0% (No. 35) – 60.0% (T-No. 6) 18.3 (No. 1) 9.5 (No. 5) – 10.4 (No. 1) 5 (T-No. 8)  6 (T-No. 26)
  • Jacksonville head coach Doug Pederson went with third-round rookie inside linebacker Chad Muma (35.3 PFF coverage grade) in place of underperforming first-round linebacker Devin Lloyd (34.7 PFF coverage grade) ahead of Week 13, but Muma suffered an in-game ankle injury and has been unable able to practice this week.
  • Lloyd is likely to start alongside abysmal veteran inside linebacker Foyesade Oluokon (56.5 PFF coverage grade). 
  • The table below ranks Jacksonville’s inside linebackers among 87 NFL linebackers with at least 90 coverage snaps
NFL LB Coverage Data PFF Coverage Grade Targeted % – Catch % Allowed Yds Allowed/Cov. Snap Explosive Pass Plays Allowed %
Foyesade Oluokun 56.5 (No. 51) 14.0% (No. 51) – 78.0% (No. 38) 1.05 (T-No. 46) 1.9% (No. 36)
Chad Muma 35.3 (No. 85) 12.0% (No. 26) – 72.7% (No. 11) 1.04 (T–No. 42) 2.2% (No. 49)
