DFS: Week 9 – FanDuel Plays of the Week

QUARTERBACK

  1. Lamar Jackson $8100 at Indianapolis Colts (1st)
  2. Deshaun Watson $8300 at Jacksonville Jaguars (30th)
  3. Josh Allen $8200 vs. Seattle Seahawks (31st)
  4. Ben Roethlisberger $7700 at Dallas Cowboys (16th)
  5. Matthew Stafford $7500 at Minnesota Vikings (27th)
  6. Matt Ryan $7600 vs. Denver Broncos (23rd)
  7. Kyler Murray $8600 vs. Miami Dolphins (8th)
  8. Derek Carr $7000 at Los Angeles Chargers (29th)
  9. Kirk Cousins $7100 vs. Detroit Lions (20th)
  10. Justin Herbert $7900 vs. Las Vegas Raiders (24th)

Skinny: Some may be surprised to see Lamar Jackson top this list…not only has Lamar been a far less desirable fantasy asset in 2020, but the Ravens are also facing the #1 ranked defense against Quarterbacks in the Indianapolis Colts…this is an EXTREME vote of confidence in Lamar Jackson and the Ravens offense…the Colts defense have not faced anything like the Ravens offense this season, and I believe it will be a shock what Baltimore throws at Indianapolis come Sunday…this is as cheap as Lamar will be in DFS, buy low…I love Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans, coming off of their bye week, facing a Jaguars defense going in the wrong direction, and making a QB change…All-In on Watson and the Texans this week…I know that it has NOT been pretty for Josh Allen here recently…you cannot ask for a better spot to get right facing a Seattle pass defense that gets torched on a regular basis…the Josh Allen/Stefon Diggs stack will be a very popular play for me this week.

RUNNING BACK

  1. James Robinson $7300 vs. Houston Texans (30th)
  2. Chase Edmonds $6700 vs. Miami Dolphins (26th)
  3. J.K. Dobbins $5300 at Indianapolis Colts (4th)
  4. Dalvin Cook $9300 vs. Detroit Lions (31st)
  5. Clyde Edwards-Helaire $7000 vs. Carolina Panthers (28th)
  6. James Conner $8200 at Dallas Cowboys (22nd)
  7. David Johnson $6800 at Jacksonville Jaguars (27th)
  8. Justin Jackson $5900 vs. Las Vegas Raiders (28th)
  9. Myles Gaskin $5900 at Arizona Cardinals (18th)
  10. Josh Jacobs $7700 at Los Angeles Chargers (14th)

Skinny: The Jaguars will have no choice but to lean heavily on James Robinson in this one…coming out of their bye week with a new QB, James Robinson will be the focal point of the offense, facing the 30th ranked defense against backs…if you’re worried about the Jaguars QB play submarining the Robinson value, it’s not like Gardner Minshew was playing lights out, play with confidence…it is Chase Edmonds week…the Dolphins defense are better in the back-half with a secondary that gives offenses fits…I would anticipate Edmonds being involved early and often as a runner and a pass catcher…we saw J.K. Dobbins begin to take over the Ravens backfield in Week #8…I know Gus Edwards will still be involved, but I anticipate Mark Ingram missing this one as well…Dobbins is a big play waiting to happen, and at just $5300…giddy up.
