It’s week 14 in the NFL. Here’s the NFL daily fantasy football lineup to play to win on Sunday, December 8, 2019.
Hey, y’all. It’s December now. Here’s this week’s daily fantasy football lineup.
As always, my emphasis is primarily cash games, with an eye on getting into the money in tournaments. These plays are primarily valued for their high floors and low risk, although some of them have a chance to go off for big games.
I always play my own lineups. I will be playing this lineup, among others featuring a lot of the same players, on Sunday. This lineup is optimized for DraftKings’ salary in the main Sunday slate. Don’t bet what you can’t afford to lose.
Okay, let’s do this.

QB | Ryan Tannehill | $5,800 | @ Oakland
Tannehill is still not a bad quarterback. He averages 18 fantasy points per game on DraftKings and has thrown two touchdowns per game since taking over for Marcus Mariota and the Raiders are in the bottom five fantasy defenses against quarterbacks.
RB | Dalvin Cook | $9,500 | vs. Detroit
Cook gashed the Lions for 30 points the last time they met and the Lions are worse now. At home, a big favorite, bad defense, this is too easy.
RB | Bilal Powell | $3,500 | @ NY Jets
With no Le’Veon Bell, Powell is in line to get all the redzone looks and the majority of the handoffs. At this salary, he’s a low-risk, high-reward option.
WR | A.J. Brown | $5,300 | @ Oakland
WR | Kenny Golladay | $6,700 | @ Minnesota
Xavier Rhodes has been struggling against teams’ top receivers and David Blough loved forcing the ball to Golladay on Thanksgiving. The Lions will likely be trailing against the Vikings on Sunday, so it makes sense that they would want to open up the passing game.
WR | James Washington | $6,000 | @ Arizona
Duck Hodges goes duck hunting with James Washington. Since taking over for Mason Rudolph, Hodges has sought out Washington for 11 targets, over 200 yards and a pair of touchdowns in two games. Don’t underestimate the power of sitting in a duck blind together in silence.
TE | Jack Doyle | $4,600 | @ Tampa Bay
Another one of those “someone has to catch the ball” scenarios. Jacoby Brissett has good chemistry with Doyle, who signed a new contract on Friday. With Eric Ebron, T.Y. Hilton, Devin Funchess and Carlos Rogers out, Doyle is a top target in the Colts’ offense.
FLEX | Travis Kelce | $6,200 | @ New England
Not going to lie, this is a late-game salary filler. Kelce is fine, he’s a double-digit floor guy who will always get targets, but he’s mostly just here to give us more late swap options at the FLEX as the day goes on, and we can leave him here if nothing opens up.

DST | Colts | $2,400 | @ Tampa Bay
The Buccaneers are one of the NFL’s leading turnover offenses and the Colts are a decent enough option to capitalize on that. At this price, they could make value even if they give up some points.
