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.

Bye weeks and scheduling have taken away alot of the options that you might look to bank on for DFS. But there are still plenty of options to consider.
Taysom Hill ($5,600) looks set to play, and is hard to overlook, given his huge rushing floor. Hill got the start in Week 13, with 101 yards on the ground, with 264 yards and 2 TDs through the air. Even with his 4 INTs that were thrown, that was a good selection. The Jets defense has been awful this season, and there’s no reason to doubt that turns around in this game.
If you want to save a little bit more salary, then Cam Newton ($5,400) is worth a look. Look, there is no easy way of saying it, his performance against Miami was awful. But, this week he has a great get-right opportunity against the Falcons. With this rushing and scoring threat h is worth considering in some of your lineups.
