When playing cash games you want safe plays. Value over upside
That usually means you want players who get piles of opportunities. Quarterbacks and receivers on high-volume passing teams, running backs that get rushing and receiving opportunities, you get the deal.
Antonio Gates returns from suspension today. He could score three touchdowns. However, it’s his first game back and the Chargers passing offense is in hyperdrive right now. So Gates doesn’t feel safe to me.
We need value at every position. If we get that we should be able to beat most of our opponents, which is all we need in cash games.
These are the players I will consider for my cash games today.
Tom Brady, Matt Ryan, Aaron Rodgers, Philip Rivers, Carson Palmer
Jamaal Charles, Le’Veon Bell, Devonta Freeman, Justin Forsett, Eddie Lacy, Dion Lewis, T.J. Yeldon, Todd Gurley
Demaryius Thomas, Julian Edelman, Odell Beckham Jr., Calvin Johnson, Randall Cobb, Antonio Brown, Keenan Allen, A.J. Green, Larry Fitzgerald, Jordan Matthews, Jeremy Maclin, Pierre Garcon, Amari Cooper, Emmanuel Sanders, Allen Robinson, Brandin Cooks, Willie Snead
Rob Gronkowski, Martellus Bennett, Travis Kelce, Charles Clay, Jason Witten, Owen Daniels, Delanie Walker, Jared Cook
