Daigle's Top Picks: Week 16

I begin my research for DFS tournaments every week by sifting through what our opponents are doing and engineering lineups backward from there.

These top plays, though viable for cash games (which will be noted throughout), are suggested specifically for tournaments and are weighted for ceiling projection, matchup, ownership, and value. I will include any thoughts on game theory within my reasoning for each player.

They are listed in order of descending price, not by my personal rankings

Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs ($8,400 DraftKings, $9,200 FanDuel)

With 320 yards in eight of his last nine starts, Mahomes—projected with the week’s highest ceiling at his position—should have no issues returning value considering the Seahawks have been diced for 28.5 points per game and 5.9 yards per play since returning from its Week 11 bye. Kansas City’s 29.5 team total is also the highest on Saturday’s main slate by a full field goal (Vikings, 26).
