Heading into Week 16 of the NFL season, not only are most season long leagues ending, but many NFL teams have been eliminated from playoff contention. With a larger DraftKings' main slate this week, building a player pool from competitive games should provide an edge. With that said, here are this week's standout plays on the main slate.
Drew Brees (v Pittsburgh) - $6,500
With notable home/road splits, Drew Brees returns to the Super Dome for a showdown with the Steelers in the second-highest projected scoring game of the week (53.5-points). Brees has eclipsed 21 points in his last two home games but fallen short of 16 in his last two road contests. Pittsburgh has allowed the sixth-most passing yards over the last four weeks (1,097). Brees sets up as a solid option for cash games.
