DFS Roundtable: Passing Game Potpourri

The DFS team discusses the passing game matchups for Week 9

What passing attack storylines are of most interest for Week 9?

  • Terry McLaurin: Heavy road underdog at Buffalo, QB questions, two down games in a row
  • Corey Davis: Dud Week 8 with optimal matchup against Tampa Bay, buying back in against Carolina?
  • How would DeSean Jackson back adjust your thinking for the Eagles passing game vs. Chicago?
  • Does Mitch Trubisky make you fade Allen Robinson?
  • Stefon Diggs with three monster games in a row, Adam Thielen expected to be back in Week 9, shootout potential vs. Chiefs
  • Buying a T.Y. Hilton rebound against Pittsburgh in Week 9 after 2-54-0 in Week 8?
  • Lions all had moments in Week 8 with soft matchup against Giants. Is Danny Amendola's role here to stay? Marvin Jones Jr the big game looming?
  • All-in on Tyler Lockett against the suspect-at-best Buccaneers pass defense in Week 9? Is Lockett-Russell Wilson a chalk stack?
  • Does Joe Flacco out push you away from Courtland Sutton, even with minimal competition for targets, against the Browns in Week 9?
  • Keenan Allen played through a hamstring question mark last week but slipping all over the field and uncharacteristically had a clunky game despite 10 targets. Is he a quality rebound candidate with five straight games of no touchdowns against the Packers?

Stefon Diggs with three monster games in a row, Adam Thielen expected to be back in Week 9, shootout potential vs. Chiefs: Thielen and Diggs are priced as WR1 and WR3 respectively (DraftKings). It’s a great matchup but Dalvin Cook could make it hard for them to hit their salary-considered ceilings. If Thielen sits, Diggs becomes a no-brainer play.

All-in on Tyler Lockett against the suspect-at-best Buccaneers pass defense in Week 9? Is Lockett-Russell Wilson a chalk stack? I’ll take Metcalf over Lockett for a lot less salary assuming his ownership doesn’t skyrocket this week. One of those two will definitely make for chalky Wilson stacks, and I don’t mind joining the crowd, even though the Seahawks stubbornly run the ball despite having one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Hopefully, Jameis Winston and company take advantage of this matchup and help Wilson/WR stacks pay off.

Does Mitch Trubisky make you fade Allen Robinson? This is a great spot for Robinson and the entire Bears’ passing attack to rebound. I’ll take a few tournament shots on Trubisky/Robinson stacks against a secondary that has struggled mightily against wide receivers (especially those that profile like Robinson) and has allowed the most fantasy points per game to the position as a result.
