We’ve made it through 15 weeks of the 2022 NFL season and are staring down a massive Week 16 slate. It’s the holiday season, meaning that there’s plenty of opportunity for giving and receiving. Let’s receive money from DraftKings and FanDuel by constructing the best possible DFS lineups ahead of jam-packed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day slates. What you opt to do with these winnings is your choice. Whether it’s buying last-minute gifts for family and friends, or treating yourself to something special, the sportsbooks are going to be in a tough spot after we wrap up the weekend.
Week 15 had a ton of production per usual, which meant a few of my recommended chalky plays like Jalen Hurts (QB – Eagles), CeeDee Lamb (WR – Cowboys), and Travis Kelce (TE – Chiefs) all netted enough points to elevate your DFS lineups into the green. Ja’Marr Chase (WR – Bengals) and Keenan Allen (WR – Chargers) finished as WR14 and WR19 respectively, while Tony Pollard (RB – Cowboys) (RB19), Isiah Pacheco (RB – Chiefs) (RB37), and Miles Sanders (RB – Eagles) (RB59) all fell below expected projections in good matchups. Joe Burrow (QB – Bengals) didn’t throw for a ton of yards but took advantage of Tampa Bay’s miscues, winding up with four passing touchdowns and finishing as the QB6, while Trevor Lawrence (QB – Jaguars) mounted an incredible comeback to beat Dallas in overtime, logging 27.82 points on FanDuel to wind up the QB5.
