NFL DFS: Best Week 14 FanDuel, DraftKings Daily Fantasy Football picks
SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro with more than $1M in winnings, gives optimal lineup advice
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 and a $1.3 million Sunday Million.
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: Bengals running back Giovani Bernard ($3,100 on DraftKings, $5,100 on FanDuel). With starting running back Joe Mixon (concussion) out this week, Bernard will be almost an every-down back against the Chicago Bears, who allowed almost 200 yards on the ground to the Eagles two weeks ago.
In addition to his regular passing down work, Bernard should see 15 to 20 carries, says McClure, making him a must-play at a minimum salary on DraftKings. Bernard had 96 yards from scrimmage last week.
Kelce found the end zone twice in the first five minutes of last week's game against the Jets and now gets a date with a Raiders defense that's just 28th in the league defending the tight end. Already this season, Oakland has given up huge production to Evan Engram (7-99-1 with Geno Smith at QB), Julius Thomas (6-84-1), and Hunter Henry (5-90), among others.
Kelce scored in the first game between Kansas City and Oakland this season and has had double-digit targets in three of his last five games. Roster him in your NFL DFS lineups on Sunday and watch the points roll in.
SportsLine's projections give Kelce the best chance to find the end zone of any Chiefs' pass-catcher this week.
McClure is also targeting a WR 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.
