We have an excellent 10-game main slate on tap for Week 10 that begins at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.
This piece will highlight the top NFL DFS players at each position in our FantasyLabs Player Models in terms of their projected ceiling from our award-winning Director of Predictive Analytics, Sean Koerner.
(Do people even read intros?)
Let’s dive in.
Top Model Quarterback Ceiling Projections
Jameis Winston ($6,800 DraftKings; $7,900 FanDuel)
Winston leads our ceiling projections on DraftKings as he gets one of the most pass-friendly matchups on the board against the Cardinals defense that ranks 28th in pass DVOA this year. Overall, Arizona is allowing 8.27 yards per attempt and 279.7 passing yards per game, both marks rank in the bottom-six of the league.
Additionally, quarterbacks have mostly played well against them as they’ve averaged a league-best 118.35 quarterback rating against them this season. This spot sets up well for Winston considering he’s averaging 300.9 passing yards per game. On DraftKings, he’d get a three-point bonus for eclipsing the 300-yard mark.
It’s hard to see Winston failing in this spot given the poor quality of the Cardinals’ defense. He has one of the best receiving duos in the league and the Bucs are implied for a healthy 28.25 points. Winston is a solid play in all formats.
