Daily Fantasy Expert Picks 15 NFL Players Who Should Have Monster Games In Week 9
Welcome to Week 9 everyone, where we take a look at some top considerations for you to put in your lineups on DraftKings this weekend. As always, if you have any questions this weekend, you can find me on twitter @kevdudz and I’ll do my best to respond.
Tom Brady-New England Patriots- $8500
I’m usually a proponent of paying only a mid-tier price for a quarterback, but this week, there are a ton of value plays at the running back position. Because of this, it allows us some flexibility elsewhere. That being said, I think Tom Brady is the top play at quarterback this week. Facing a banged up Washington Redskins secondary, Brady should be slinging the rock around all day.
Eli Manning- New York Giants- $6900
After participating in an epic shootout last week where he threw for 5 touchdowns, Eli is in another great matchup this week. Facing one of the worst passing defenses in the league in Tampa Bay, I expect Eli to have another 300+ yard game to go with 2-3 touchdowns. He’s an excellent tournament play stacking with Odell Beckham.
Ben Roethlisberger- Pittsburgh Steelers- $6600
Big Ben is in a nice spot this week, and I think the Steelers are going to be one of the highest scoring teams this weekend. Roethlisberger gets to face off against a terrible Oakland secondary, and should have a lot of success through the air, whether getting it to Antonio Brown, or finding some value in his tight end, Heath Miller.
Derek Carr- Oakland Raiders- $5500
I’m expecting Oakland to be trailing in this game, so I expect Carr and Oakland to need to pass a lot to play catch up. Carr has blossomed in his second season, dropping 23 and 32 DK points the last two weeks. I’d expect him to approach those numbers again.
