NFL DFS: Best Week 14 DraftKings and FanDuel Daily Fantasy Football picks
For Week 14 of the 2017 NFL season, the Daily Fantasy Sports site DraftKings is running a $3 Million Fantasy Football Millionaire-Maker. FanDuel is running a $4 million Sunday NFL Fan Championship.
Before you enter a Daily Fantasy lineup on DraftKings or FanDuel, you need to hear what professional DFS player Mike McClure has to say. McClure has more than $1 million in career DFS winnings and is rolling through this season, entering multiple lineups that have already cashed big in tournaments.
Last week, he was all over Patriots running back Rex Burkhead, a player many overlooked because of how many backs New England utilizes. The result: Burkhead absolutely went off with 15 touches for 103 yards and two touchdowns, returning a season-high 25.3 DK points for the low price of just $5,000 on DraftKings. Owners who had him in their lineups were well on their way to a huge DFS payout.
Now, McClure has exhaustively studied the matchups, injuries and depth charts for Sunday’s slate and has again locked in his optimal NFL DFS lineup. And he’s sharing it over at SportsLine.
One player he absolutely loves in Week 14: Seattle running back Mike Davis ($3,700 on DraftKings, $5,500 on FanDuel). There’s finally some clarity in Seattle’s backfield after Davis took nearly 75 percent of the snaps in the Seahawks’ huge win over the Eagles in Week 13.
And he didn’t just play, he produced. Davis, even against a tough Philly defense, had 20 touches for 101 yards. Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls, meanwhile, combined for just two carries. It’s safe to label those two as non-factors at this point, while Davis will carry the load again this week against the Jaguars, who allowed 141 yards rushing to the Colts last week.
Despite his Week 13 production, Davis is still under-priced, leaving you plenty of room to roster a big star like Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce ($7,400 on DraftKings, $8,000 on FanDuel).
Kelce has a favorable matchup this week against the Raiders, a team ranked No. 28 in the NFL defending the tight end. This is a must-win situation for Kansas City, a team that has lost four straight and has dropped back into a tie with the Chargers for first in the AFC West.
QB Alex Smith will be looking for Kelce early and often in this game as he comes off another strong performance in Week 13 where Kelce piled up 94 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Jets. In a week where TE Zach Ertz (concussion) could be out and Rob Gronkowski is suspended, lock Kelce in.
McClure is also targeting a wide receiver with a dream matchup against a secondary that has proven it can’t cover that position. He knows this player is in line for huge production. Picks like these could be the difference between winning your tournaments or going home empty-handed.
So who is DFS pro Mike McClure putting in his optimal DFS lineup this week? Visit SportsLine now to see the full Week 14 tournament lineup from a professional DFS player who nailed Rex Burkhead’s big performance in Week 13 and has over $1 million in career winnings, and find out.
