Daily Fantasy Football Week 9: Lineup Picks for Sunday Baller contest

- Advertisement -

NFL Week 9’s main daily fantasy roster starts Sunday at 1:00 pm EST and includes 10 games. Six teams are saying goodbye this week: the Browns, Cowboys, Broncos, Giants, Steelers and 49ers. Also excluded are Thursday Night Football (Eagles-Texans), Sunday Night Football (Titans-Kansas City), and Monday Night Football (Ravens-Saints). With so many teams on the line and some of the league’s most fantasy-friendly offenses playing in prime time, Week 9’s pool is smaller than usual, but there are still compelling options to choose from. Sportzshala will host many NFL DFS contests in Week 9, but the biggest one is the Sunday Baller, which pays out a $250,000 guaranteed prize pool to the top 2,700 players, including $50,000 to the winner. You can submit up to 150 entries to this contest, which has a maximum total capacity of 14,700 entries, but will still run if it is not filled, potentially giving you increased chances of winning, also known as an overlay.

Playing in guaranteed prize pool (GPP) competitions is all about chasing profits, while heads-up, 50/50 or doubles-focused lineups should prioritize high floors. The players you want to target for these different types of competition are not mutually exclusive, but winning a GPP tournament usually requires finding a hidden gem or going upstream in one or two places, while building a solid base of the same Mela plays you would use anywhere. Playing against the grain usually consists of high-profile players in complex or boom or bust matches with undefined roles.

Be aware that Sportzshala DFS competition uses a 0.5 PPR rating rather than a full PPR, which reduces the comparative value of wide receivers and running backs (in that order), but particularly affects high-volume pass catchers. Your $250,000 NFL Sunday Baller roster will consist of one QB, two RBs, three WRs, one TE, one FLEX (RB/WR/TE) and one D/ST.

Suggested games in Week 9 include a double-threat quarterback taking defense on the road, a pair of 2021 draft-selected stars on the running back, and a wide receiver who benefited from a recent center switch.


Kyler Murray, ARI vs. SEA ($31)

The Seahawks typically have one of the sharpest home-and-away gaps in the NFL, and the same trend will continue in 2022 as Seattle is 3-1 with 16.5 points per game at home and 2-2 with 31.5 points per game. for the game. on the road. However, the positive effect DeAndre Hopkins‘The payoffs from the suspension outweighed the negatives Marchioness Browna leg injury (and the release of a new Call of Duty) when it comes to Murray’s passing numbers. Last week in Minnesota, the QB set a season high in yards (326) and touchdowns (3), of which 159 went to Hopkins.

The mobile quarterback is also sixth in yards with 299 yards, and that dual threat ability needs to be on full display against the Seattle defense, which is turning into the Lions on the road.

honorable mentions

Justin Herbert, LAC at ATL ($34); Kirk Cousins, MIN in WAS ($29); Aaron Rodgers UK at DET ($27)

Against the Greiners

Josh Allen, BUF at NYJ ($40); Tua Tagovailoa, missing in the CHI ($30); Taylor Heinicke, WAS vs. MIN ($22)


Travis Etienne JAX vs LV ($27)

Etienne has shown he can thrive as a workhorse in recent weeks and has been the lead ever since. James Robinsonnow Jet. Over the past two weeks, Etienne has rushed for 270 yards and scored two touchdowns in 38 attempts. His intelligence report coming from Clemson compared him to Alvin Camaraand last week the Raiders had absolutely no response for Kamara as the running back Saints set them on fire for 158 scrimmage yards and three touchdowns.

Etienne will look to put up a similar performance, and if the Jaguars fall behind, he’ll likely see a few extra off-field targets against the Vegas defense, which allowed running backs for 428 yards and three airborne touchdowns – third and second in the league, respectively.

Ramondre Stevenson, NE vs. IND ($23)

Stevenson took the lead in the New England backfield when Damian Harris injured his hamstring, and the sophomore runner performed so well that he continues to be used as a workhorse even when Harris is healthy. In his last four games, Stevenson rushed 71 times for 347 yards and three touchdowns, and in his final two he was used much more often as a pass catcher, hitting all 15 of his goals for 131 yards. FROM Mac Jones struggling to push the ball down the field, Stevenson must continue to absorb carries and checkdowns in a game that is expected to see a New England attack on the field against a Colts team that has an untested youngster. Sam Elinger under the center without the benefit of a healthy Jonathan Taylor.

honorable mentions

Austin Eckeler, LAC at ATL ($39); Aaron Jones, UK, DET ($26); D’Onta Foreman, CAR at CIN ($17)

Against the Greiners

D’Andre Swift, DET v. UK ($22); Cordarrell Patterson, ATL vs. LAC ($21); Antonio Gibson, WAS vs. MIN ($15)


Tyreke Hill, MIA at CHI ($32)

Hill leads the league in both catches (69) and receiving yards (961), so he has an elite scoring record despite only hitting the end zone twice. There is no limit for the speedster against the Bears defense, which is sure to be demoralized after the trade of two of their best players in Robert Quinn and Roquan Smith. Chicago just lost 49 points to the Cowboys, and while other teams have been able to get past the Bears, Miami isn’t built that way. Instead, expect to see a lot of production from Hill’s one-two and Jaylen Waddle.

Terry McLaurin, WAS vs. MIN ($19)

McLaurin has seen a noticeable spike in efficiency since Taylor Heinicke took place under the center in Washington. The two built chemistry last season and picked up where they left off: McLaurin caught 11 of 16 targets for 186 yards and scored a touchdown over the last two games. Washington will likely have to shoot to catch up with the Vikings 6-1, and Minnesota has managed to win in each of the last two games despite not being able to hold off the opposition’s top wide receiver; Tyreke Hill and DeAndre Hopkins combined for 24 catches, 336 yards, and one touchdown that stretch against the Minnesota.

Romeo Doubs, GB to DET ($14)

Dubs played well as he was the de facto main target for Aaron Rogers last week in Buffalo, and he should continue to feature prominently against the holey minor Lion, even if Allen Lazard may return after missing the previous game due to a shoulder injury. The rookie scored a solid touchdown in the loss to the Bills, marking the third time Dobes finished with at least 47 yards and a touchdown. His floor was lower than you’d like, but that’s why he can be found at a lucrative paycheck against the Lions defense that allows for the most points (32.1) and scrimmage yards (421.3) per game.

honorable mentions

Justin Jefferson, MIN in WAS ($35); Ty Higgins, CIN vs. CAR ($28); DJ Moore, CAR at CIN ($16)

Against the Greiners

Mike Evans, TB vs LAR ($23); Michael Pittman, IND in NE ($16); Garrett Wilson, NYJ vs. BUF ($14)


Gerald Everett, LAC at ATL ($18)

Justin Herbert The Falcons shouldn’t have a problem with a minor player throwing a league-record 306.9 passing yards per game, but the Chargers’ receiving body is falling apart, which should leave a lot of goals for Everett. Mike Williams dropped out with an ankle injury, and Keenan Allen He returned from a hamstring injury last week but did not play in the second half and may need more time to recover. Even No. 3 wide receiver Joshua Palmer can’t play as he recovers from a concussion. Only so many times Herbert can check it out before Austin Thanks., and Everett had some good performances for the Chargers, passing 50 yards in four of his seven games and scoring a touchdown in two of those four. The tight end is ready for another strong outing against the Falcons defense, which allowed 54 catches (second place) and 552 yards (third place) to position.

honorable mentions

Zach Ertz, ARI vs. SEA ($23); Robert Tonian, UK, DET ($16); Evan Engram, JAX vs. LV ($15)

Against the Greiners

Darren Waller, LV at JAX ($21); Kyle Pitts, ATL vs. LAC ($16); Tyler Conklin, NYJ vs. BUF ($11)


Cincinnati Bengals, CIN vs. CAR ($14)

Bill Belichick vs. an inexperienced quarterback is a tempting proposition, but the DFS Patriots’ salary is outrageously expensive. The Bengals are getting a much more reasonable salary against a playmaker-deprived Panthers attack. Fold up the box to stop D’Onta Foreman and shade extra attention dj mooreBy the way, what did the Panthers have left? PJ Walker made some key shots but still has career TD: INT 5:9 and second wide receiver Terrace Marshallstill looking for his first touchdown in the NFL. Bengals defenders will be angry and motivated at home after the Browns’ rivals trashed them in front of a national audience, and this Panthers visit should be just what the doctor ordered to get Cincinnati to taste that Halloween defeat in their mouths. .

Honorable Mentions:

New England Patriots, NE vs. IND ($22); Buffalo Bills, BUF to NYJ ($20); Green Bay Packers UK at DET ($15)

Against the Greiners:

Carolina Panthers, CAR at CIN ($16); Los Angeles Rams, LAR at TB ($13); Los Angeles Chargers, LAC to ATL ($10)
