DraftKings Daily Fantasy Football Helper for Week 9
Week 9 presents its own set of obstacles this week with a watered down field because of six teams out on bye weeks. Five games are currently projected to have over 6 touchdowns in them, with the Patriots-Redskins game leading the way with a 52-point expected total, and we'll break down which players to target from several price tiers.
Remember, as a rule of thumb with PPR scoring, you want your players to hit three times their value; that is to say for each $1,000 in salary, we want that player to achieve three fantasy points (If Cam Newton has a $7,000 salary, we want him to hit 21 fantasy points to be considered worthy of rostering).
Here, we'll also take a look at Guaranteed Prize Pool (GPP) players with the potential to surpass that threshold while being lower owned compared to the rest of the players at his position.
Of course, numberFire also offers a great tool for premium members, allowing you to build customizable lineups by inputting your players and seeing what our projections offer for the week. There's even an optimization function that'll use our algorithms to help fill out the rest of your daily lineup and give you the best chance of succeeding on game day.
Using Vegas spreads and totals, our Net Expected Points (NEP) metric, and some daily fantasy gamesmanship, let's take a look at which players you should target this weekend.
As a reminder, the Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens, Detroit Lions, Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs, and the Seattle Seahawks will all be on their bye weeks.
