We're past the halfway point of the regular season and rolling into week 9. Let's get right into it!
Aaron Rodgers - $7,800 - vs Ind - Rodgers has been lighting it up ever since Eddie Lacy got hurt. He's throwing it like crazy, and now he gets the Colts, at home. Indy has given up the 6th most fantasy points to QBs on the season and the Packers have the highest projected team total of the week. He's the most expensive QB on the week, but he's absolutely worth paying up for.
Drew Brees - $7,200 - The 49ers will be missing outside linebacker Aaron Lynch and starting corner Rashard Robinson. The Saints are going to score a ton of points against this weak D. The Rodgers/Brees decision will likely come down to who has the better Player Props come Sunday morning.
Dak Prescott - $6,100 - @Cle - Dak just had a great game against Philly, and now gets to go face the Browns. They've given up the 4th most points to QBs on the year, and the only good QB they have faced is Brady. Everyone will be on the running back, but Dak is a great play.
Ezekiel Elliott - $7,900 - @Cle - The NFL's leading rusher now gets to face the Cleveland Browns. The Browns have given up the 3rd most fantasy points to RBs on the year. Dallas is projected for the 3rd most points on the week and Zeke should continue to eat!
Le'Veon Bell - $7,700 - @Bal - Bell's lowest game this year has been 18.8 points, and he hasn't scored 1 touchdown! He is an absolute stud and the best RB in PPR leagues like DK. He's averaged over 10 targets per game over the last 3 weeks! He may even go lower owned as everybody will be paying $200 more for Zeke this week.
Charcandrick West - $4,400 - vs Jax - Start your DK lineups with West this week. Spencer Ware is out with a concussion. This leaves West as the only running back that has been on the Chiefs for more than 6 days (Bishop Sankey signed Tuesday).
Dez Bryant - $7,400 - @Cle - Bryant had 14 targets in his first game back. And although he only caught 4 of them, he still had 24 DK points. He could have had a much bigger game, and now he gets to face the Browns.
Davante Adams - $5,900 - vs Ind - Ever since Eddie Lacy went down, the Packers have been throwing like crazy. With basically no running backs available, Adams is getting double digit targets. This is PPR gold on DraftKings and makes for an amazingly safe floor going forward. Randall Cobb is also expected to sit this week, providing even more targets for Adams.
Donte Moncrief - $5,800 - @GB - The thinking was that the Colts would ease him back into game action last week, his first game back from a shoulder injury. Nine targets later and Moncrief is someone we need to target immediately.
Ty Montgomery - $5,800 - vs Ind - Everyone's forgotten about the magic of Ty Montgomery very quickly. He sat out last week, but will be back this week against the Colts. He is a PPR machine in his new role and should be a lock for 10 targets.
Kyle Rudolph - $4,000 - vs Det - He's averaging almost 8 targets per game and the Lions have given up the most points to tight ends this year.
Seahawks - $3,900 - vs Buf - If you're playing the Monday slate of games, the Seahawks are a great play at home against the Bills.
Chiefs - $3,500 - vs Jax - They'll get to Blake Bortles in this one and could force a bunch of turnovers.
Rams - $2,400 - vs Car - If you need a cheap D to fit your lineup, the Rams should fill in nicely. The Panthers aren't projected to score many points, they're giving up over 6 QB hits per game, and averaging 2.4 turnovers per game.
That's it for this week! Good luck in your games!
