Stagg Party's Week 9 DFS 



Pillar: RB, Ezekiel Elliott– FanDuel - $8,900 – DraftKings - $9,000

Well, well, well, we meet again. After thinking all week that Zeke was suspended, people are now rushing to make him a part of their lineups. Zeke is in the middle of a hot streak with three straight 100 yards games and averaging an awesome 33.1 fantasy points over the last two weeks. Zeke gets a Chiefs defense allowing 108 rushing yards to opposing running backs a game and that has allowed seven touchdowns to the position on the season. Over the last three weeks however, the Kansas City Chiefs have been gashed by the run, allowing 426 yards on 84 carries with three touchdowns and five receptions a game to the position. Zeke is going to continue to get road until we get word on his suspension, because if this is the last one he will have a six-week bye.


Sleepers: RB, Adrian Peterson – FanDuel - $6,800 / DraftKings - $5,600

Adrian Peterson is in a prime spot this weekend against the San Francisco 49ers. Over the last three weeks, the San Francisco 49ers have allowed 638 total yards and five touchdowns to opposing running backs. All day gets to face a defense that is reeling, right now and with Drew Stanton at quarterback we know they shouldn’t try to air it out. Over the last five weeks, the 49ers have allowed 1,013 total yards and six total touchdowns to opposing running backs, need I say more? Well I will, because that is what I do. In PPR scoring 11 different running backs have gone for double-digit fantasy points against the 49ers this season. Over the last two season the 49ers are allowing 28.5 carries for 129 yards and 1.125 touchdowns to opposing running backs on the ground and through the air is 5 receptions for 50 yards and .35 receiving touchdowns. All the Cardinals have at this point or not, I am firing up Peterson this weekend.


Low Cost Dart Throw: TE, Jimmy Graham – FanDuel - $6,200 / DraftKings - $5,000

Jimmy Graham is coming off one of his best games with the Seattle Seahawks hauling in two touchdowns against the Houston Texans. This week he gets the Washington Redskins who are shutting teams wide receivers down this season, allowing the sixth fewest fantasy points in PPR scoring. The Redskins are allowing the fourth most points to opposing tight ends, and have allowed the most reception yards to them, despite 20 receptions less than the worst team there. Five different tight ends have topped 12.5 fantasy points against the Redskins in just seven games this season. Currently leading the league in targets within the ten this season, Graham also has a good touchdown expectation.


Fade: WR, Will Fuller – FanDuel - $7,800 / DraftKings - $7,800

Without Deshaun Watson, I don’t know how to value Fuller. The downgrade to Savage at this point is monumental. Savage has not thrown a touchdown pass in 105 attempts in his career, and Watson was throwing one every 10.74 attempts. Without a touchdown projection, Fuller looks pressed to have a tough time despite the butter matchup. It is just too risky now to touch Fuller, despite being in a smash spot.



ØC's Week 9 DFS



Pillar: WR, Tyreek Hill – DraftKings $6,700 / FanDuel $7,700

Check out these home/away game fantasy point totals for Tyreek Hill:



The Chiefs Week 9 matchup is on the road against a Cowboy secondary allowing the 26th most FF points to receivers. Enough said.



Sleeper: RB, Alvin Kamara – DraftKings $6,300 / FanDuel $6,600

Alvin Kamara has five straight fantasy performances of over 12 FF points, including a 10 reception outburst in Week 6. With Adrian Peterson out of the picture, Kamara is the clear RB1a to Mark Ingram, who fumbled twice last week and seems to be in the dog house. Alvin and the Saints will face a putrid Buccaneers defense at the Super Dome. Kamara is a clear RB2 back in PPR formats and could easily explode if Ingram continues to fumble.



Dart Throw: RB, Damien Williams – DraftKings $3,700 / FanDuel $4,500

The trade of Jay Ajayi to the Philadelphia Eagles left a major gap for waiver wire addicts to decipher who could take over a prominent role in the Dolphins rushing attack. As daily fantasy is always PPR, ill go with the back with more opportunity to collect receptions out of the backfield. Kenyan Drake may get the starting job, but since 2016, Williams has out touched Drake in receiving 31 to 12. Put me down for this low risk (and cheap) dart throw in a struggling offense with a back up QB.



Fade: WR, DeAndre Hopkins – DraftKings $9,100 / FanDuel $9,100

Hopkins is definitely worth this price with DeShaun Watson as his quarterback. But the injury gods decided they needed a sacrifice, and all Texan player owners cried out in misery. With Tom Savage passing the ball, each receiver is downgraded a level (WR1 à WR2). Savage totaled only 62 passing yards and two fumbles in Week 1 before getting the hook. Wide receiver is only as good as the QB allows him to be, and this is going to be a nightmare for Hopkins (and Fuller owners).



QB, Drew Brees – DraftKings $7,000 – FanDuel $8,400

RB, Alvin Kamara – DraftKings $6,300 – FanDuel $6,600



d-Rx's Week 9 DFS



Pillar: QB, Russell Wilson - FanDuel $8,500 / DraftKings $7,300

Russell is hitting his mid-season destruction of any defense stride like always and the Redskins are middle of the road. Russell was the best QB last week against a better defense in the Texans, so I like him again this week to put up some serious points!


Sleeper: WR, Corey Davis - FanDuel $5,500   / DraftKings  $4,400

He's been healthy for weeks and ready to show why he was drafted with the 5th overall pick in April. In week 1 he had 10 targets and has been injured since. I'm rolling the dice on him even though the Ravens are a solid defense against WRs on the season.

Dart Throw: TE, A.J. Derby - FanDuel $4,500   / DraftKings $

This call is inspired from our Pyro Podcast the other night where Staggs pointed out how Broke Asswiper loves to feed the tight end. A.J. has been having some solid games lately, so he's a great add at the cost he comes at. 

Fade: RB, Joe Mixon - FanDuel $6,300 / DraftKings $5,100

I've been sort of crappy at calling my fades, so take this with a grain of salt.


Russell Wilson - FanDuel $8,500 / DraftKings $7,300

Doug Baldwin - FanDuel $7,900 / DraftKings $6,900
