This article is a data-driven deep dive on strategic decision-making and roster construction for DFS cash games and tournaments. It relies heavily upon FantasyLabs’ extensive suite of analytical DFS tools, as well as advanced metrics and film study. First, I walk through narrowing down the player pool at each position. Then, I lay out how to choose the highest-floor lineup combinations for cash games. Finally, I go game-by-game to present the biggest edges (stacks, pivots, leverage opportunities, etc.) in each.
Week 16 shmoney time.

- Lamar Jackson, Ravens ($8,000 DK, $9,300 FD) at CLE
Lamar Jackson owns the slate’s highest projection in our NFL Player Models. Jackson has topped 20 fantasy points in all but one game this season. Cleveland has been getting gashed n the ground by scrambling quarterbacks, allowing 9-66-0 on the ground to Jackson earlier in their year, as well as 9-31-1 to Russell Wilson, 6-28-2 to Josh Allen, 5-45-1 to Ryan Fitzpatrick, and 8-56-0 to Kyler Murray.
