Week 9 FanDuel Targets

Seahawks Russell Wilson

We are cruising right along here to Week Nine of the NFL season. We are set up with a somewhat difficult main slate on FanDuel. The struggle this week is to find some value plays to fit the higher priced options in our line ups. It wouldn’t be fun if was easy.


Russell Wilson $8,600 – The game that jumps off the page as the easiest to go to a shoot out is this one. The Bucs’ have a solid run defense and should force Russ to run and use his arm.

Jameis Winston $7,500 – The flip side of this contest will showcase Jameis Winston. The Seahawks have struggled mightily to contain passing attacks all year.

Sam Darnold $7,300 – If going cheap at the position, Darnold should be able to muster a solid game versus the Dolphins. I expect no ghosts in this one.

Mitchell Trubisky $6,500 – A walking punchline this year, Trubisky is set up nicely this week. I feel people forget the offensive explosions he had, just last year. I’m not calling for a five touchdown game or anything, but the Eagles defense has not been able to stop the pass all year.

Chirstian McCaffrey $9,700 – The top two options here are very expensive. The only week this year I tried to fade CMC was Week Five. He had 237 combined yards and three touchdowns that week. Pay up for his top tier volume each week he is here.

Dalvin Cook $9,000 – Dalvin should be a more popular option with the cheaper price tag and possibly better match up.

Josh Jacobs $7,200 – The clear bell cow for the Raiders lately. Hopefully for this price tag the passing targets will continue to add up.

Le’Veon Bell $7,000 – Bell has been bottled up all season long. With only two touchdowns this season, I wouldn’t be shocked if he doubles that this week.

Derrick Henry $6,800 – The Titans will likely lean on Henry to move the ball this week. The Panthers have been giving up plenty of points on the ground.

Tarik Cohen $5,300 – One of the top pass options this week could be Cohen. In order to fit the the big names in I will gamble on some big play guys here.

Jaylen Samuels $5,000 – Not as cheap as I had hoped for, but he should be plenty serviceable at this price.

Chris Godwin $8,200 – I like both receivers this week for the Bucs. This could be the first week where Jameis actually splits his targets evenly among the two, who knows.

Tyreek Hill $7,700 – As of writing this, I do not know if Patrick Mahomes is playing or not. Either way, Hill will likely not be a popular play. His speed travels.

Tyler Lockett $7,500 – The most trusted receiver for the Seahawks should be in line for a big day.

Allen Robinson II $7,200 – The best passing option for the Bears and is often over looked due to quarter back play. Robinson has made a career playing with sub par passers. Roll him out.

Tyrell Williams $6,300 – He has been extremely impressive so far. A touchdown in every game played and that streak continues for at least one more week.

Robby Anderson $6,200 – We finally get to the most explosive passing threat for Sam Darnold. The Jets have one dynamic that not all teams have, that is, they tried to trade all their top options three days ago. I expect some apologetic targets.

Marvin Jones Jr. $5,700 – Much, much cheaper than Kenny Golladay. I feel the Lions will be able to move the ball through the air and simply, Jones is the best value.

Preston Williams $5,500 – Williams has gotten a solid target share with Ryan Fitzpatrick starting. The Jets are certainly susceptible to the deep ball.

DJ Moore $5,400 – Christian McCaffrey cannot take all of the targets. Moore should get plenty in this one, with Curtis Samuel coming in banged up.

Darren Waller $6,800 – Waller had an underwhelming game last week, yet, did find the end zone. We have to pay for the bounce back this week.

Travis Kelce $6,700 – If Mahomes is out Kelce may be a popular play. Matt Moore may be more likely to go quick and short to his top tight end.

Hunter Henry $6,400 – Henry has been a big part of the passing attack since his return. That continues this week.

Eric Ebron $5,200 – With no T.Y. Hilton, some one has to step up. There are worse options this week.


Bills $5,000 – Paying up for a defense has been a good option this week. With all the high priced position players, it certainly will not be a popular pick.

Browns $4,300 – The Browns will get to face Brandon Allen. Enough said.

Panthers $4,000 – The Panthers are usually serviceable yet were fleeced last week by the 49ers. The Titans will score but not 50.
