Our Week 16 DraftKings DFS cash guide helps you build an optimal lineup by giving you the best player picks and sleepers based on matchup and expected workload.

Below are some of the players I’m considering for my cash lineups in Week 16. Some things may change between now and Sunday (injury news later in the week is one of the most important things to pay attention to for DFS), but this should give you a good starting point when building cash lineups for Week 16.

Quarterbacks

Pricey: Ben Roethlisberger ($6,700). Big Ben is averaging nearly as many DK points on the road (23.7) as he is at home (24.4). The Saints/Steelers game has by far the highest over/under on the main slate (57), and New Orleans has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

Mid-tier price: Jameis Winston ($5,500). Coming off last week’s predictably hard game against the Ravens, Winston is the cheapest he’s been since Week 4, when he wasn’t even the starter. Aside from last week, Winston has topped 20 DK points in every game he’s fully played. Easy money at this price point.
