FanDuel Projected Ownership: Week 9 PREMIUM
In Week 8, we saw a majority of owners ride Mark Ingram and LeSean McCoy for big weeks on their way to doubling up their money. This week, there is a similar pair of high-projected running backs that everyone will want to get their hands on. They are expensive, however, so expect to see people spending down at other positions this week to be able to squeeze the two backs under their budget. Let’s take a look at how it should turn on this week’s FanDuel slate.
There isn’t much in the way of safety this week with Deshaun Watson out, which would usually mean ownership would be spread around quite a bit more than it is. The reason three players are projected for over 60% of the action is that there are so many crummy matchups this week for the second tier of quarterbacks. Don’t play it too cute in cash games. Rather, make sure to get your hand on one of these three.
Kareem Hunt has now gone five consecutive weeks without scoring. Don’t expect that to keep up though, as he has over 100 total yards in all but one game so far this season. He should fly into triple-digits once again in a shootout against Dallas. Todd Gurley is both safe and has a monster floor against New York this weekend. Do your best to get one or the other into your lineup, and if you can somehow find a way to afford it, jam them both in there. Beyond them, there are a handful of other plays worth considering including Miller against the Colts. Rather than going cheap on some of these high upside plays, you’ll be better served sticking with the certain volume.
