For the Love of the Game.

Crafting The Perfect DFS Fantasy Football Lineup Week 9

3 min read


Philip Rivers: ($5,100DK, $7,200FD)

It’s been a roller-coaster season for Philip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers, team-wise, they are underperforming, badly. However, he still has lots of offensive targets around him and due to a new offensive coordinator, is very cheap in DFS this week. Rivers has finished as a top-10 quarterback four times this year, look for him to make it five after Week 9.

Philip Rivers is projected to be rostered in 18% of all DFS lineups.

Derek Carr: ($5,500DK, $7,300FD)

Derek Carr has thrown at least two touchdowns in four of his last five games. He luckily finds himself in a fantastic match-up this week against a Lions defense that has now allowed four passing touchdowns in each of the last two weeks. The Detroit Lions defense also allowed Daniel Jones to finish as QB1 last week, leaving Carr in a golden match-up for Week 9.

Derek Carr is projected to be rostered in 9.5% of all DFS lineups.

Running Back

Aaron Jones: ($7,000DK, $7,700FD)

Aaron Jones is averaging a career-low 4.1 yards per carry this season, however, he has made up for that lack of efficiency by finding the end zone 11 times so far. Jones is in a five-star match-up this week against a Los Angeles Chargers team that could not contain David Montgomery last week.

Aaron Jones is projected to be rostered in 41.2% of all DFS lineups.

Derrick Henry: ($5,700DK, $6,800FD)

Henry has yet to find his footing with Ryan Tannehill under center for the Titans, thankfully he gets an amazing match-up this week against the 28th ranked Carolina Panthers defense. Derrick Henry currently has 151 carries for 581 yards and six touchdowns this year as he is on pace to match the career-best totals that he set in 2018.

Derrick Henry is projected to be rostered in 10.8% of all DFS lineups.

Wide Receiver 

Mike Williams: ($4,600DK, $5,700FD)

Mike Williams is a couple of drops shy of being the unsung hero of this year’s fantasy season, the potential for him as a wide receiver is unmatched. He just can’t seem to be the consistent target he should be in the end zone for the Chargers offense. Rivers seems to still have faith in him despite the drops and Williams is still the Chargers best bet in the end zone.

Mike Williams is projected to be rostered in 18.6% of all DFS lineups.

D.K. Metcalf: ($5,700DK, $6,700FD)

Nobody in the NFL has more red-zone targets than D.K. Metcalf and finds himself in a match-up against the Buccaneers 26th ranked defense in a game which could be a shootout, Metcalf has serious WR2 upside in Week 9. Seattle runs the ball as much as they can, but once they get down into that red zone. Wilson is consistently looking Metcalf’s way.

D.K. Metcalf is projected to be rostered in 9.7% of all DFS lineups.

Tight End

Dallas Goedert: ($3,100DK, $5,000FD)

Oddly enough Goedert is probably the first back-up tight end we have ever put in our slates. However, Goedert has played 40+ snaps in each of the Eagles’ last five games and in that time he has more fantasy points than starter Zach Ertz. It’s slowly becoming the Dallas Goedert show in Philly, time to capitalize while his price is still low.

Dallas Goedert is projected to be rostered in 7% of all DFS lineups.

Cameron Brate: ($3,100DK, $5,100FD)

Starting a Tampa Bay Buccaneer tight end in daily fantasy from pure face value seems silly. Except when that tight end is playing the Seattle Seahawks, currently ranked 29th against the tight end position. Seattle has allowed the sixth-worst points per target to tight ends this season, expect Brate to take advantage of poor defense in a high scoring game.

Cameron Brate is projected to be rostered in 11% of all DFS lineups.

Defense/Special Teams

Washington Redskins: ($1,800DK, $3,000FD)

Washington held the Minnesota Vikings offense to only 19 points on Thursday Night Football and find themselves matched up against the 26th ranked offense in the NFL on a long week of rest. The Redskins are the highest projected value play in all of DFS this week with a 3.30x point/price ratio.

Washington is projected to be rostered in 33% of all DFS lineups.
