FanDuel Week 5 Cash Game Picks and Strategy

In this space each week will be the top cash plays on FanDuel with strategies on how to build a profitable cash lineup. The backbone of 4for4’s cash game approach is our proprietary value metric, which goes beyond simple point per dollar projections. That value calculation extends to a player’s odds of hitting cash game value based on their implied volatility according to their floor, median and ceiling projections.

NOTE: With positive COVID tests throughout the Titans team, there is a chance that their Week 5 contest against the Bills will be postponed.


The era of paying for running backs in the $9,000–$10,000 is over, for the time being, making it relatively easy to pay up at quarterback. In fact, most of this week's top running back values are priced below $7,000. With so many elite, multi-threat quarterbacks in favorable spots this week, it’s almost not even worth considering paying down at the position in cash games.

Lamar Jackson ($8,900) is not priced as the QB1 on a slate for the first time in over a year and is the top value at his position. Jackson isn’t spoiling fantasy managers like he was last season but he’s still one of the most efficient fantasy passers, with a touchdown rate over 7%, and he’s averaging nearly 60 yards per game on the ground. Baltimore’s 32.25 implied point total is the second-highest on the slate.
