On the main slate of games in Week 9 (1pm & 4pm kickoffs), here are the games with some of the highest O/U totals:
Kansas City Chiefs @ Dallas Cowboys (-2) O/U 52
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New Orleans Saints (-7) O/U 52
Indianapolis Colts @ Houston Texans (-6) O/U 46
Washington Redskins @ Seattle Seahawks (-7.5) O/U 45
Now there are nine positions on DraftKings...I'm not advocating for you to build a lineup with just these four games...but IF hypothetically you wanted to...here's how I'd attack it....
QB Jacoby Brissett ($5200)
I wouldn't build starting with Brissett in your cash game lineups, but if you want to roster the next guy I'll be talking about in your lineups you'll need to save elsewhere and Brissett has a nice matchup against a Texans secondary that was just torched by Russell Wilson and the Seahawks and has allowed the 11th most receiving yards this year.
RB Ezekiel Elliott ($9000)
We're talking daily fantasy football here not season long and we know Zeke is at least playing this week so we're paying up as the Chiefs have a bottom 5 run defense in terms of rushing yards per game and they've allowed the third most yards per carry at 4.9. Zeke ran the ball an astonishing 33 times against the Redskins a week ago and in his prior four games he had 22,21, 29 & 26 attempts. Start Zeke with confidence in both your cash and GPP lineups.
RB Doug Martin ($5800)
The Saints run defense (just like the aforementioned Chiefs run D) allows a third worst 4.9 yards per carry and with Jameis Winston still playing through an AC joint sprain. Keep in mind too that the Bucs will try and probably keep the Saints offense off the field so they'll want to control the clock by running the ball and the Muscle Hamster has 38 carries combined over the past two games.
WR T.Y. Hilton ($4900)
Hilton seems like everybody's favorite cheap WR this week, and I'm good with playing him in all formats as you pair a pass catcher with Brissett. He's very volatile but you need the salary relief and he's the best bet at WR against a weak Texans secondary.
WR Michael Thomas ($7200)
Tampa has allowed the third most catches and fourth most yards to WRs, and while he hasn't lit up the stat sheet Thomas is still getting the targets all season long (8-10-8-11-6-11-8). If you're someone who believes in trends then that means this is a double digit target week for Thomas and he can be rostered at a bit of a value as he hasn't been this cheap since Week 3 against Carolina.
WR Tyreek Hill ($6700)
Hill hasn't received less than six targets at all this season and has just three less receiving yards than teammate Travis Kelce this season despite catching six less passes. Dallas has allowed the 12th most receiving yards per game this season and Hill's been much better on the road (100.8 ypg receiving, 3 TDs) compared to at home (37.5 ypg, 0 TDs).
TE Jack Doyle ($4300)
Doyle will be even chalkier than his teammate T.Y. Hilton after he busted out for 12 catches for 121 yards and a touchdown against the Bengals last week. Houston isn't great vs the TE this year, allowing the 10th most receptions to the position and 11th most yards overall. Doyle's led the Colts in receiving in three straight games and is a great cash game target that allows for you to spend elsewhere.
FLEX Ryan Grant ($3500)
It sure sounds like Jamison Crowder could be held out this week, so in that case Ryan Grant offers not only salary relief but a chance to log a ton of targets in the slot where the Seahawks aren't very strong. Grant saw a personal season high seven targets in the loss to Dallas and if you believe the Redskins will be losing on the road on the west coast to a Seattle team on the rise, Kirk Cousins will have to try and bring them back with his arm and he should look at Grant quite a bit.
DEFENSE New Orleans Saints ($3400)
The Saints have the fourth highest amount of INTs this season with nine and have picked off a pass in every game since Week 2 against the Patriots. I'm usually cool with targeting against the inaccurate Jameis Winston and despite not being great against the run you get fantasy points for turnovers and INTs.
