Saturday 19th Aug 2017

Week 9 features our second week with six teams on byes (Bengals, Cards, Bears, Texans, Patriots, Redskins). That narrows the regular Sunday DraftKings contests to just 11 NFL games. Several games pop out on the card, including Saints-49ers and Colts-Packers. Expect to see high ownership in both of those games.

The Quarterback list is a little shorter than normal. Three high-end options and two low-price options. That is what happens when Brady, Dalton and Cousins are on byes.

QB Aaron Rodgers GB 7800 Who needs a running game?
QB Drew Brees NO 7200 Who needs a defense?
QB Andrew Luck Ind 6700 See Brees above
QB Marcus Mariota Ten 5900 Three excellent weeks in a row
QB Ryan Tannehill Mia 5600 Not often on this list - Jets D not good

Several running back contingencies are on the list this week. Carlos Hyde is in play if healthy. The last man standing in KC, Charcandrick West, is definitely in play if Spencer Ware is out. Same for Derrick Henry if DeMarco Murray can’t suit up.

RB Ezekiel Elliott Dal 7900 Top back with Johnson on bye
RB Le'Veon Bell Pit 7700 Have to consider every week
RB Devontae Booker Den 6400 Got pricy quick
RB Carlos Hyde SF 6100 Solid play if healthy
RB Jay Ajayi Mia 6000 Back-to-back with over 200 rush yards
RB Derrick Henry Ten 5000 Cheap play if DeMarco can't go
RB Theo Riddick Det 4900 Returns with a vengeance
RB Charcandrick West KC 4400 Only man standing in KC

A very solid, but short list of wide receiver candidates. Packers receivers have been rolling since the running game went on IR.

WR Dez Bryant Dal 7400 Great return - tops the WR list
WR Jarvis Landry Mia 7100 Guaranteed points as possession receiver
WR Emmanuel Sanders Den 6300 Broncos only throw to two WRs
WR Demaryius Thomas Den 6000 Raiders defense still not playing well
WR Davante Adams GB 5900 Dominant since the backs were hurt
WR Ty Montgomery GB 5800 If healthy - and a bump if Cobb is still out
WR Michael Thomas NO 5500 Very dependable
WR Kenny Stills Mia 3900 A flyer for a deep ball (or two)

One of these weeks we will pick the correct tight end. Seems like a wasteland of players in Week 9, so we narrowed the list down to just four (and they all have warts).

TE Greg Olsen Car 6200 TE is really weak this week
TE Travis Kelce KC 5300 Kelce might be better with Foles
TE Delanie Walker Ten 4600 Mariota's top target
TE Eric Ebron Det 3100 Inconsistent but cheap and healthy

We go short on defenses in Week 9 as only four grace our list. Two big home favorites lead the way.

DST Chiefs KC 3500 Jax is sloppy with the ball
DST Cowboys Dal 3400 Anyone vs. the Browns
DST Ravens Bal 3300 If Big Ben is still out
DST Dolphins Mia 3100 Jets struggle if they fall behind

Here is my DraftKings cash game lineup as of today:

QB Andrew Luck Ind 6700
RB Theo Riddick Det 4900
RB Ezekiel Elliott Dal 7900
WR Emmanuel Sanders Den 6300
WR Michael Thomas NO 5500
WR Davante Adams GB 5900
TE Delanie Walker Ten 4600
RB Charcandrick West KC 4400
DST Dolphins Mia 3100
      49300

Here is my DraftKings GPP game lineup as of today:

QB Drew Brees NO 7200
RB Jay Ajayi Mia 6000

      49800
