Welcome to the NFL Week 9 optimal lineup pivots for DraftKings and FanDuel! I’m going to go over the optimal lineups using the Team Rise or Fall NFL Study Hub projections, 4 man game stack, and potential pivots that have tournament winning upside. Let’s get into it!
The optimal elected to go with a Cardinals/Bills game stack. This stack is pricy but, this game presents the highest total on the slate. Larry Fitzgerald won’t make my final player pool as he does not get enough volume. He is a MME only play for me.
Mike Davis– He’s easily the best value on the slate and everyone knows it. He will be popular for good reason. It’ll be hard for him to not hit value on Sunday. I’m locking him in.
Darren Waller– Really the only stand-out tight end on the slate. According to the NFL Study Hub, Waller accumulates a 30% market share and has the highest ceiling at the position.
Dolphins Stack- The stack of Tua Tagovailoa with Jakeem Grant, Devante Parker, and Keenan Allen ranks as the top value stack in the NFL Top Stacks tool and allows for an abundance of salary to use on the rest of the lineup. Keenan Allen is my ideal run back from the Chargers’ side of this game as he accumulates a 28% market share according to the NFL Study Hub.
Davante Adams– Adams comes in as WR1 in the NFL Study Hub projections and the price is not an issue with the amount of value on this slate. I’ll have plenty of shares of Adams on Sunday.
Alvin Kamara– Kamara comes in at RB1 in the NFL Study Hub projections and New Orleans has an implied total of 29.5 against San Fransisco. I’m expecting Kamara to get somewhere in the neighborhood of 12 carries and 8 targets. If he finds the end zone, we could be looking at a 30 point day.
The optimal elected to go with a Bills/Cardinals game stack. This is a common theme because this is a great game to stack. Diggs and Hopkins have dominated market shares on their offenses with Diggs accumulating 32% and Hopkins coming in at 25%. I’ll have plenty of exposure to this game on Sunday.
James Robinson– This is a play I could pivot off of. Robinson projects well but, Jacksonville has an implied total of only 18 points and Green Bay is favored to win by 13.5 points. We could see Robinson game scripted out of this contest.
Mike Davis– Just like on DraftKings, Davis stands out as the top value play and will be popular. I’m going to lock Davis in for Sunday.
D.K. Metcalf– Metcalf comes in at WR4 in the NFL Study Hub projections and Seattle has an implied total of 26. Metcalf has accumulated a 23% market share and no defense has proven they can stop the Seattle air raid this season.
Aaron Jones– Green Bay has an implied total of 31 and Jacksonville is giving up 27 points per game to opposing running backs according to the NFL Study Hub. I’d look for Jones to get his normal workload in this contest and could hit his ceiling.
Noah Fant– Fant saves you $1,300 as a pivot off Waller and Las Vegas is giving up 28 points per game. I’d expect Denver to put up points through the air and Fant should be a focal point of the offense.
See ya in discord,
