DFS Round Table: Favorite DraftKings Plays for Week 14

Every week of the 2017 NFL season, our contributors will provide their favorite DraftKings play of the week and share their thoughts in our weekly DFS Round Table post.

In some cases, the play is intended for tournaments (i.e., Guaranteed Prize Pools or GPPs); in other cases, it's for cash games (e.g., head-to-heads and 50-50's). Or both.

Who is your favorite DraftKings play for Week 14?

Kevin Hanson: Giovani Bernard, RB, Cincinnati Bengals ($3,100)

This one is contingent on the health of Joe Mixon, who sustained a concussion on Monday night. If Mixon isn't cleared on a short week, the Bengals, who had placed Jeremy Hill on IR earlier this season, will rely almost exclusively on Bernard out of the backfield. Bernard had a season-high 15 touches and 96 yards from scrimmage last week. At a bargain salary of just $3,100, Gio provides plenty of salary-cap relief and flexibility for the rest of your lineup.

John Trifone: Josh Gordon, WR, Cleveland Browns ($5,500)

Gordon will certainly be popular this week after getting 11 targets in his first week back. Casey Hayward called him his toughest cover all year. This week, Gordon will get the weak secondary of Green Bay, and for just $5,500, he should exceed value with a chance to crush it.

Brendan Donahue: Mike Davis, RB, Seattle Seahawks ($3,700)

I'm going to continue my recent theme of finding featured backs that are cheaper than $5,000. It's worked really well lately as evidence by Joe Mixon's 28.5 points two weeks ago and Jamaal Williams' 23.3 points last week. This week, we get an even cheaper opportunity with Mike Davis at only $3,700. He got 16 carries in his first game back from injury last week and played 73% of the snaps, proving that he is without a doubt going to be the featured back this week. Granted, they are going up against Jacksonville, but while their defense overall has been very good, they've still allowed the 17th-most points to opposing RBs on the season so Davis is still too good of a value to pass up.

Dan Yanotchko: Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Arizona Cardinals ($6,500)

This week I am going with the ageless target machine Larry Fitzgerald with a great matchup against Tennessee. Fitz has a four-game split of 42 targets, 32 catches, 78.5 yards per game and two touchdowns. That includes a 12-yard game against Jacksonville. The Titans allow 242 yards passing per game, and 22 touchdowns so far, so the Blaine Gabbert-Fitz stack is in play.

Sean Beazley: Trevor Siemien, Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, QB/WR/WR, Denver Broncos ($4,700/$5,000/$4,700)

I was all over Denver this past week and they burned me. I am not going to let that detour me from going back to them this week at home vs. the Jets. I’m going to go heavy with a double stack of Siemien/Sanders/DT. This stack cost less than $15,000 and will allow me to pretty much do whatever I want with the rest of my lineup. I think this stack will go under-owned considering how poor Denver was last week.
