SUNDAY MORNING UPDATE:
Each Sunday around 11:30 AM EST, this article will be updated based on any surprise inactive or just news in general that is updated throughout the week. It will have the latest recommended cash game lineup included as well.
The more I think about this, the more I think about the true upside of Russell Wilson this week. He's incredibly safe, but that also means that you're banking on Kyler Murray and Deshaun Watson to have poor games who will be the most popular cash game quarterbacks. With that said, I'm shifting the cash game lineup to want a piece of the upside.
- QB Deshaun Watson, Hou, $8,400
- RB Leonard Fournette, JAX, $7,900
- RB Dalvin Cook, MIN, $8,300
- WR Tyler Boyd, CIN, $5,600
- WR D.J. Chark Jr, Jax, $6,600
- WR Larry Fitzgerald, ARI $5,600
- TE Evan Engram, NYG, $6,800
- Flex RB- Latavius Murray, NO, $5,300
- TD Buffalo Bills, $5,500

STRATEGY THIS WEEK- ACCEPTING THE CHALK IN CASH
Far too often when reading articles or listening to podcasts/videos, we hear talk about ownership projections. The reality is that while ownership projections are important in a GPP format, in cash games we should be utilizing ownership projections in a different way. In a cash game format, what you want to do is to be able to recognize the players that are going to be extremely popular as you then have to make a tough decision on that player. For example, in weeks where Christian McCaffrey is 50%+ owned, as you’re building your lineup you have to determine whether or not you want your entire week to be determined by one player. Often times it is better to just put the chalk player in your lineup and try to differentiate elsewhere as there is a reason that they are the chalk player whether they are a great value or a great player in a great opportunity.
