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.

Everyone seems to be ignoring the No.1 fantasy QB over the last month in Aaron Rodgers ($7,500) at a projected 3.2% owned, so I will happily take advantage of that. The last three weeks have seen the Green Bay QB average 32.7 DK points, which is an easy stud value play based on his price here. Rodgers may not have his full arsenal of weapons at his disposal this week, but he has the two most important ones in Adams and MVS who have been eating alongside A-Rod as of recently.
Trevor Lawrence ($5,100) is an intriguing QB this week with the departure of Urban Meyer as head coach. Week One earlier in the season haw Lawrence has one of his few boom games as a rookie so far, scoring 25 DK points against this same Houston defense he faces here in Week 15. For me, this fresh start allows Lawrence and Jacksonville to get back on track and their opponents this week are not exactly the toughest opponent out there.
