When it comes to DFS, everyone looks for those slate-breaking players (and if you are not, then you should be!), players who can win you the big bucks if they have a day and lower ownership, even better! This especially matters in tournaments, where you are looking to differentiate from your competition and sometimes even yourself and your other lineups, as opposed to cash games, where you would be after more ‘safer’ lineups to secure a more likely pot of cash.
These articles will highlight those players who I feel can break the week’s slate and players you should be, at the very least, considering, going for position-by-position.
Week Ten Review
I was pretty satisfied with how Week Ten went, in all honesty!
For as many let downs we had in Brady, A.J. Brown, Arizona DST. We made up for hits in Dak Prescott, all the running backs featured, Fant and Conklin, among others.
Let’s hope to build some momentum now that we are heading into the business end of the regular season!

Much like last week, Dak Prescott ($7,200) is someone who feels like a natural draw this week, but not as a pivot but as a core play. We all know how bad this Kansas City defense is in general, especially against opposing QBs, being 31st (second-highest) overall for points per game on the season. Furthermore, we saw Dak and Dallas bounce back in empathic fashion in Week 10, and this momentum should continue with weapons like Cooper and Gallup returning to full health and the offense overall just feeling itself again, and Kansas City, you would like to think, can make it a competitive game.
Targetting Cincinnati vs Las Vegas could be a nice pivot from some chalkier games, especially with Joe Burrow ($6,600) and Derek Carr ($5,900), both projecting under 10% ownership. Both of these defenses from Weeks 7 to 10 are ranking in the bottom three in points allowed per game to the QB position (CIN: 24.4, 31st, LV: 24.2, 30th) through the last three games they have played, meaning points are to be had!
*Worth noting that keeping an eye on Lamar Jackson and Kyler Murray’s absences throughout this week as both are in advantageous matchups if they play
