It’s finally here- Week 18 of the 2022 season, and another DraftKings main slate. We are back offering you DFS advice to try and help you navigate your way to victories throughout the season. The players selected here are based on their price, their ability to hit value and likely ownership. The selections are leaning more towards GPP slates, rather than cash (50/50) slates. But let’s get into it

Josh Allen v MIA ($7,900)
Allen pulled the Bills into the playoffs, through the air and on the ground. That security of carries gives him a nice floor, and his arm talent gives him a decent ceiling too. In his two games against the Dolphins this season, he has totalled 124 yards on the ground, with 704 yards and 6 TDs through the air. On this slate, Allen is the premier piece at the QB position.
Justin Herbert @JAX ($6,600)
The Chargers really did themselves harm in Week 18 in starting their top guys and putting them out there for the majority of the game. As a result, they are without Mike Williams for this game. But, they have (generally) returned to health which is a massive positive. Herbert and the Chargers should be at full health though, something that they weren’t when they met earlier in the season. The Jaguars gave up an average of 19.5 DKPts to the position in the regular season, making them one of the worst in the league. With the pricing, you can build so Chargers mega-stacks and feel ok about the other pieces in your team.
Kirk Cousins v NYG ($5,900)
Trusting Cousins in a big game feels like a risk, given his history, but it’s a nice spot here. The Giants defense weren’t able to keep the pressure on Cousins when they met recently, with Cousins (and Justin Jefferson) blowing up in the second half. It could be rough, but the cost allows you to spend up elsewhere on the slate.
Daniel Jones @MIN ($5,600)
The Giants made the playoffs, but didn’t exactly do it the easy way. But, a repeat of their Week 16 matchup against the Vikings is a good opportunity to progress. Jones has really improved this season, which is incredible considering the players that he is being forced to throw to. The big difference to his fantasy production has come on the ground, with 186 yards and 3 TDs in his last four games.
