Week 9 Fanduel and Draftkings Strategy: Daily Fantasy Football Player Picks


Another week down, hopefully you all made some money.  I had a pretty good week, my best lineups scored 153 points on FanDuel and 204 on DraftKings this week!
Last week I did a game by game breakdown of each game so you could understand my thought process and how I look at the Vegas lines to help guide me in selecting my fantasy team.  This week I list some of the better priced players and a few that Id select.

***Note: Remember to sign up to get my sleeper picks and deep discount player picks!

Here is my list of players in each position that I narrowed down to those I like the most and will be featuring in most of  my lineups. To prepare I’ve already put together a few Fanduel lineups I like. This week will be tricky once again as there are very few bottom dollar sleeper plays that jump off the page.

Studs ($8000 and up)

Andrew Luck IND@NYG $10,100 – All in!

Tom Brady DEN@NE$9,000 – The windy weather scares me but I’’ll use him a bit.

Average Salary ($7000-$8000)

Colin Kaepernick STL@SF$7,800 – Love his upside this week.

Carson Palmer  ARI@DAL$7,800


Mike Glennon TB@CLE$6,500

Brian Hoyer TB@CLE$6,200 – Really like him for this price point.


Studs ($8000 and up)

DeMarco Murray ARI@DAL$9,600

Arian Foster PHI@HOU$9,400

These are the only two RB Studs I’d consider paying up for this week. They have been so consistant week after week.  Its hard to work these guys into your like up but with a low budget sleeper play, I was able to make it work. 

Average Pricing ($6500 to $7900)

Ahmad Bradshaw IND@NYG $7,500

Ronnie Hillman DEN@NE$7,200

I’m going all in on this RB combo. I will try and find some cheaper options to mix and match so my lineups not all the same. Draftkings has some great deals on Denard Robinson (DK $4,800), McCoy (DK $5 200) and Gore ($3800) are extremely cheap and should you work some studs into your lineups as well as diversify your FanDuel and DraftKing lineups between sites a bit. 

Sleepers ($6500 and below)

Justin Forsett BAL@PIT$6,500
Jerick McKinnon WAS@MIN$6,300 –  He has been hot lately
Bobby Rainey TB@CLE$6,200 – Martin looks to be out so this makes him a good play.
FanDuel Sleeper pick for under $5,000?? Sign up today to find out who it is!!!
DraftKings Sleeper Pick this week is Frank Gore(DK $3,800)


Studs ($7500 and up)

Antonio Brown BAL@PIT$9,000
Dez Bryant ARI@DAL$8,800
Jeremy Maclin PHI@HOU$8,400
Emmanuel Sanders DEN@NE $8,200
T.Y. Hilton IND@NYG$8,100 – All in on him this week

Average Price ($6600 to $7500)

Steve Smith BAL@PIT$7,200
Mohamed Sanu JAC@CIN$7,200
Mike Wallace SD@MIA$7,200
Brandon LaFell DEN@NE$6,900 – Brady should be throwing alot
DeAndre HopkinsPHI@HOU$6,900 – Very consistant week after week.

WR Punts ($6500 and under)

Andrew Hawkins TB@CLE$6,400 –
Gets a lot of targets
Rueben Randle IND@NYG$6,400
John Brown ARI@DAL$6,400
Donte Moncrief IND@NYG$6,200 – Only if Reggie Wayne sits out
Anquan Boldin SF@STL $5,000 – Freebie!
Great matchup and price all in on Boldin

The studs are very pricey this week so working a few into your lineups this week will be tough.. Boldin is my favorite play of this group followed by Randle. I like the GPP upside of Boldin in his matchup this week. 



Rob Gronkowski DEN@NE$7,900

Julius Thomas DEN@NE$7,800

On Fanduel this week for me Im all in on Gronk or a sleeper. Over at Draftkings, there is a large discrepancy in the salaries betweem Gronk ($7600) and Julius ($5600). SO I would more likely fo with Julius on Draftkings where he is much cheaper then Gronk. 

Sleeper Value Picks

Vernon Davis STL@SF$5,700

Jordan Reed WAS@MIN$5,500



Cincinnati Bengals JAC@CIN$5,600

Seattle Seahawks OAK@SEA$5,500
Kansas City Chiefs NYJ@KC$5,300
San Francisco 49ers STL@SF$5,200

I love all those Defenses this week so I will be using a combination of them in my lineups.

Sleeper Value Picks

Minnesota Vikings WAS@MIN$4,900
Cleveland Browns TB@CLE$4,800
