QB: Tom Savage
FanDuel – $6,000
DraftKings – $4,600
Yes, I know the risk that comes with taking a guy like Tom Savage in DFS, but if there’s ever a week to pull the trigger on him, it would be in week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have allowed the second-most yards per game through the air, which trails only the Patriots, and they have overall looked like one of the worst teams in the NFL. Indy hasn’t won a game since early October and has been consistently getting lit up by opposing quarterbacks since. The price that you can get Tom Savage at really opens you up to being able to get some of the high-end guys who are in great positions this week. Although the floor is low on Savage, I like his ceiling and the price tag. In week 9, Savage is more of a tournament type play. but I would not fault you at all for giving him a look in your cash game lineups.
RB: Todd Gurley
FanDuel – $9,100
DraftKings – $8,100
Todd Gurley has been absolutely dominant this year, surpassing the 100-yard mark five times as well as collecting eight touchdowns in his first seven games. Coming off a bye, Gurley should have some fresh legs and look to take advantage of his easy matchup versus the Giants. The G-men were already a mess, and now with the indefinite suspension to Janoris Jenkins and injuries to some of their star players including the likes of Olivier Vernon, they are going to have a very tough time stopping this explosive Rams team. Even with Gurley’s price tag, it is important to find a way to squeeze him into your lineup, as he will bring almost guaranteed production to the table.
WR: Dez Bryant
FanDuel – $7,700
DraftKings – $6,400
Dez has not looked himself this year, but in week 9, he finds himself in a great matchup that gives him a pretty good chance to have one of his better outings of the season. Bryant and the Cowboys play host to the Chiefs this week, who have surrendered over 2,000 yards in the air thus far and rank as one of the worst teams in the league against opposing wide receivers. Kansas City has gotten torched all season long to the position, as they have allowed a league-high 13 touchdowns to them. The best part of this for Bryant is that he is not expected to see too much Marcus Peters in this one, who is the one bright spot of the Chiefs secondary. You can get Dez at an affordable price, and given the upside that he has in this juicy matchup, he is worth a look in all formats.
TE: Jimmy Graham
FanDuel – $6,200
DraftKings – $5,000
Graham has been on a tear lately, finding the end zone four times in his last three games. In week 9, the Seahawks are at home against the Washington Redskins, who have allowed the most yards per game to opposing tight ends this season. Tight ends have consistently had some monster games against the Skins, and I would not expect to see any different this week. Graham has a great shot at finding the end zone for the fourth consecutive week, which makes him a good play in all formats.
FanDuel – $4,800
DraftKings – $3,100
It hurts saying this as a Giants fan, but I believe they are going to get absolutely embarrassed in front of their home crowd this week against the Rams. This pick isn’t really about how the Rams are defensively, even though they did shut out the Cardinals last game, it is more about how bad the Giants are offensively. Sterling Shepard will be returning to the lineup for this one, but they will now be without Justin Pugh from the offensive line, which is devastating news to an already injury-depleted offense. The G-men haven’t scored more than 24 points all season, and I wouldn’t expect them to even be flirting with that number this week against the Rams.
