2020 Week 9 DFS Plays on Draftkings

Last Week’s team (110.66 total, ~120 cash line):

Jimmy Garoppolo (2.76)

Alvin Kamara (25.90)

Kareem Hunt (9.30)

Brandon Aiyuk (23.10)

Keenan Allen (21.70)

Rashard Higgins (2.40)

Jonnu Smith (4.90)

Jamaal Williams (18.20)

Patriots (3.00)




Josh Allen ($7000) has one of the biggest games of his young career so far this week, as the Bills are tested against the top tier offense of Seattle. I think we see Allen step up and this game will become a shootout.


Others to Consider:

Deshaun Watson ($7100) has been on a tear recently, with over 300 yards and multiple touchdowns in 4 straight weeks, including his last matchup with Jacksonville.




James Conner ($6900) gets to face a Cowboys team that have basically given up hope on the season. I expect Conner to have a high likelihood of reaching the 100 yard bonus and adding a few TD in this spot.


Chase Edmonds ($6800) gets to take over for Kenyan Drake’s revenge game against the Dolphins. I have some concerns with Edmonds taking on a full load of the backfield, but his receiving upside puts him in play against a Dolphins D that has yet to allow over 100 yards to an RB all year.


Off the Board:

Tony Pollard ($4000) is an interesting play this week, as Ezekial Elliot is potentially going to miss this game. Even if Zeke plays, he may be limited, giving more opportunity to Pollard having a path to 12+ touches in a game they are expected to trail.


Others to Consider:

Dalvin Cook ($8200) is in the best RB matchup in the league: at home as a favorite against the Lions. Coming off his 50 burger last week, I am ready to see Dalvin “Cook” once again. Justin Jackson ($4900) has 20 touch upside in a plus matchup against the Raiders, with Troymaine Pope missing this game to take snaps away. Deejay Dallas ($5000) has a path to 15+ touches with Carson and Hyde out, but Homer worries me on the upside if this game becomes a shootout.




Julio Jones ($7200) is in a smash spot against the Denver Broncos who are missing AJ Bouye once again. Add in that Calvin Ridley is not expected to play, and Jones becomes the best WR play on the slate, coming off 3 straight games with at least 7 receptions.

Tyler Lockett ($6800) gets one of his best matchups on the season, against the slot funnel of Buffalo. We have seen Russell Wilson lock on to one of his big receivers as part of the game plan, and this week appears to be a Lockett week.


Off the Board:

Marquise Brown ($6000) has a squeaky wheel narrative this week, as Lamar Jackson has called out that he needs to throw Brown the ball more. That starts this week.


Others to Consider:

Stefon Diggs ($7400) is my preferred stack with Allen. I think Cole Beasley ($5400) is also in play as the Seahawks have struggled in the slot. Keenan Allen ($7000) is in play every week, as you can expect about 10 targets every game at this point. Diontae Johnson ($5000) continues to be underpriced for a guy who continues to see 10+ targets in games that he is healthy. His ceiling may be limited if the Steelers truly smash the Cowboys and it turns into a Conner game.




Hayden Hurst ($4100) may see a boost in usage, especially in the red zone, with Calvin Ridley out. Hurst has shown a solid floor over the past few games, so he seems like one of the safest plays of the week.


Others to Consider:

Wil Dissly ($2700) is cheap exposure to the Seattle Buffalo game, and he has seen an uptick in snaps over the past few weeks, so he’s not a terrible play.
