DraftKings Week 10 Cash Game Breakdown
SUNDAY UPDATE: After further research, I've found Kirk Cousins ($5,200) to be a viable alternative ay QB against a Saints defense ranked ead last in QB aFPA. I now also think Randall Cobb ($6,700) is viable against the Lions, who are ranked 28th in WR aFPA. Cobb has a great individual matchup against sixth-round rookie slot corner, Q'andre Diggs. Inserting Cousins for Blake Bortles and Cobb for Demaryius Thomas lets you bump up from Mark Ingram to Todd Gurley ($7,300) -- the top overall RB play -- and from the Broncos to the Rams ($3,600), who have not allowed and offensive TD at home in their last three games. With wind gusts possibly hitting 25 mph in Oakland, I'd reserve Stefon Diggs for GPP consideration only.
With Week 10 comes what seems to be a limited stable of usable WRs in cash games. Consistent guys like Julian Edelman, Jarvis Landry, and even Michael Crabtree have been priced up. Guys who are priced fairly have tough matchups (Alshon Jeffery, Larry Fitzgerald). Randall Cobb -- who I'd normally jump on at a $6,700 price tag -- worries me because even with the best on-paper matchup of Packers WRs last week, he was only able to catch four passes on a day Aaron Rodgers threw 48 times. The wild card here is Stefon Diggs. If Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) is cleared, Diggs can be slotted in for Demaryius Thomas, and then you can go Gurley-Williams-Ingram at RB and bump down $100 on defense to either the Bengals or Panthers.

QB Blake Bortles $5,600 @ BAL
A top-eight QB in DraftKings points per game this season, Bortles will face a Ravens defense allowing the fourth-most passing yards per game (283.9) and the third-highest QB rating (106.9) in the league. He has been consistent in terms of fantasy, throwing for multiple TDs in six of eight games. He owns averages of 274.1 passing yards and 2.1 passing TDs per game this season. Both of his poor fantasy outings came in predictable situations against Carolina and Buffalo, who both rank in the top-seven in QB aFPA. The Ravens rank 31st in QB aFPA.
