This article aims to highlight some of the best NFL DFS Plays at every position for your cash game lineups. Keep in mind that the following player write-ups were constructed earlier in the day, and sometimes injury situations can alter the fantasy landscape. Monitoring our NFL News & Headlines Feed throughout the week will keep you in the loop while giving you the subsequent DFS consequences of each information piece.

We’ll take a look at the two-game Tuesday slate of Week 15. Lineups lock at 7:00 ET.

QUARTERBACK

Jalen Hurts - Philadelphia (vs. Washington)

Hurts and Stafford emerge as the headline quarterbacks of this slate. I’m leaning towards the former, as he’s a little bit cheaper with rushing upside. Hurts doesn’t have an injury designation heading into this game even though he missed the last contest with an ankle injury. He’s had more than two weeks to rest up, so the Philadelphia QB should be good to go as his usual self on Tuesday. That’s good news while heading into this tasty matchup against Washington, who has allowed the most fantasy points to signal-callers this season.

Also Consider: Matthew Stafford

RUNNING BACK

Antonio Gibson - Washington (at Philadelphia)

Game flow is not on Gibson’s side, but I’m expecting him to see plenty of touches in this contest. Washington is starting QB Garrett Gilbert, so you better believe they will run the ball as much as possible to take the pressure off him. On top of that, J.D. McKissic is still out, so Gibson will see more work in the passing game. We’ve seen Gibson come through with 30-35 carries in recent weeks, and I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the case on Tuesday.

Darrell Henderson Jr. - LA Rams (vs. Seattle)

Henderson is listed as active on Tuesday, so he should stand in as the RB1 for Los Angeles. That’s good news while facing a Seattle team that has allowed the second-most fantasy points to running backs. Game flow is on his side as well, so we should see Henderson get 20+ touches to pad his fantasy numbers. The first time he played the Seahawks, the Rams’ RB came through with 17 fantasy points. That’s a sensible baseline (with upside for more) in this rematch.

Also Consider: Rashaad Penny, Miles Sanders

WIDE RECEIVER

Cooper Kupp - LA Rams (vs. Seattle)

Who else? You could argue that Kupp is the most valuable fantasy commodity on this slate. He’s seemingly matchup-proof, as very few defenses have been able to slow him down this season. The guy is seeing 10-15 targets per game, which almost always translates to positive DFS value despite the hiked-up salary. Kupp has gone over 115 receiving yards in six of his last eight games while coming up with seven touchdowns over that span. Go ahead and lock him in on this two-game slate.

DeVonta Smith - Philadelphia (vs. Washington)

Smith is a solid stacking extension of Hurts on Tuesday. The rookie has been uninspiring over the last two weeks, but we can’t forget about his 20+ FP upside in consecutive games early last month. As mentioned earlier, Hurts is back for Philly, and he loves to target Smith. The matchup screams for a breakout as Washington has allowed the third-most fantasy points to receivers this year. Put it all together, and Smith is an excellent buy-low candidate.

Also Consider: DK Metcalf, Odell Beckham Jr., Van Jefferson

TIGHT END

Gerald Everett - Seattle (at LA Rams)

I’m going cheap at tight end tonight while trying to squeeze in the aforementioned picks. Everett stands in as a solid bargain with some moderate upside. Game flow suggests that Seattle will be passing early and often tonight, which could float more targets towards Everett. The Seahawks’ tight end has some momentum on his side, catching a touchdown in two of his last three outings. Everett has also seen six or more targets in three of his last five games. These are all positive factors for a dirt-cheap bargain.

Also Consider: Dallas Goedert

DEFENSE

Eagles Defense (vs. Washington)

This recommendation doesn’t need much analysis. We have three quality QBs on this slate and then fill-in Garrett Gilbert of Washington. You better believe I’m going to attack Gilbert in cash games by selecting the Eagles’ defense. The Rams are next in line, but I prefer Philadelphia with this outstanding opportunity if you can swing the extra cap space.
