You’ll find all kinds of DFS fantasy rankings, values, best/worst plays on DK Nation, but what about just identifying the good chalk? I play almost completely in cash games during NFL season, and it’s really important to know who we can trust, and who we can’t.

New to the cash game scene? Cash games on DK refer to double-ups, 50-50s and head-to-heads — all of which roughly the top half of the field doubles its money.

Here are the plays that jump out in Week 10:

Quarterbacks

Lamar Jackson ($7,300) at CIN — The Bengals allow the second-most DKFP to QB. Jackson just shredded them for 19-152-1 on the ground, along with 33.6 DKFP.

Jameis Winston ($6,800)/Kyler Murray ($6,500) ARI at TB — This game has shootout written all over it, and the production should mostly come through the air. Both are very strong options.

Ryan Tannehill ($5,100) vs. KC — Averaging about 23 DKFP in his three starts, and Kansas City ranks 25th in DKFP allowed to QB. Playing as a home dog should help.

Running Backs

Saquon Barkley ($8,800) at NYJ — Too cheap for a matchup against the Jets, in what basically amounts to a home game.

Nick Chubb ($7,000) vs. BUF — The Bills just had trouble stopping Miami and Washington on the ground. Chubb’s in position for a big day.

David Montgomery ($5,300) vs. DET — I didn’t think we’d be able to trust Montgomery this season, but the Bears have finally committed to him. The rookie has 48 touches over the last two weeks, scoring over 22 DKFP in each game. The Lions allow the second-most DKFP per game to RB.

Devonta Freeman ($5,100) — Freeman will get all the touches against the Saints, with Ito Smith (neck) placed on IR. Freeman’s scored 17-plus DKFP in four of his last five.

Devin Singletary ($5,000) at CLE — The Bills made a clear effort to feature Singletary last week. He saw 23 touches go for 140 yards and a touchdown (23 DKFP). The Browns rank 27th in DKFP allowed to RB.

Wide Receivers

Michael Thomas ($8,300) vs. ATL — Thomas is the most consistent WR in the NFL. His floor is 16 DKFP, and he has explosive potential, particularly against Atlanta. The Falcons rank 28th in DKFP allowed to WR.

Mike Evans ($7,600) vs. ARI — Evans has been red-hot since his goose egg against the Saints, scoring over 100 DKFP in his last thee games. He’s in a fantastic home matchup in what should be a barnburner.

D.J. Moore ($5,200) at GB — Moore’s quietly seen 8-10 targets in four straight games, scoring 15-plus DKFP in three of those games.

Jarvis Landry ($4,900) vs. BUF — It’s been a disappointing season, but we can’t ignore 23 targets over the last two games at this price. Still has shown upside, and finally brought in a TD last week.

A.J. Brown ($4,400) vs. KC — Now Corey Davis (hip) leads to an expanded role for Brown. The rookie has already seen seven or more targets in two of his last three.

Tight Ends

Austin Hooper ($5,500) at NO — Hooper’s been the best TE this season, on pace for over 100-1,000-10 on the season. Lock him in with confidence any week you can afford him.

Mike Gesicki ($3,100) at IND — Coming off a 6-95-0 game (15.5 DKFP) and into a great matchup. The Colts rank 24th in DKFP allowed to TE, and their scheme forces the ball to the middle of the field.

Defense/Special Teams

Steelers ($2,600) vs. LAR — Averaging 13.8 DKFP in home games this season, and scored 11 or more in six straight. The Rams have a great offense, but can struggle on the road.

Browns ($2,500) vs. BUF — The Bills have one of the least explosive offenses in football. This could finally be the letdown spot on the road.
