Just a reminder: this lineup only considers players playing on Sunday, which is FanDuel's weekly main slate. We have a fun three-game Thanksgiving slate on Thursday as well. For that, I would consider a healthy Ben Roethlisberger in a great matchup to be the top overall play, closely followed by Dak Prescott. Sam Bradford is a tournament pick to consider, as he's cheap with a great matchup on paper, However, he hasn't been able to make good on well-aligned draws recently, and there's certainly some risk associated with his fantasy potential at the moment (especially if Diggs is out) ... Enough about guys not listed in the "meat and potatoes" of the article. Below we are taking a look at two cash game quarterbacks, two GPP quarterbacks, and a value. Opposing defenses, game theory, prices, and individual quarterback numbers are taken into account.
Cash Game Quarterbacks
Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks

Wilson is finally healthy, and his stat-lines are responding in a positive manner. He has recorded 25+ fantasy points in three straight games. Here's the kicker, the matchup at Tampa this Sunday is probably his best within this recent stretch. The Buccaneers' pass defense is certainly one to target against, ranking 25th in that category, also allowing a record-setting performance by Derek Carr four games ago (513 yards, 4 TD). Expect Wilson to keep rolling, and this is salary is more than generous considering the matchup/recent performance ... The fact that Seattle is short at the running back position could funnel more volume Wilson's way as well.
