NFL DFS DraftKings Cash Picks: Week 9 (Fantasy Football)
NFL DFS cash games are all about building a high-floor lineup that can win in head-to-heads, 50/50s, and double-ups. Each week I’ll highlight my favorite cash game picks that I have some confidence heading into the weekend to put into my player pools.
For more on cash game strategy and the mechanics of it, make sure you listen to our DFS Cash Overview episode. Be sure you’re also subscribed to the DFS Podcast where Kyle and I go through the main slate every Friday and recap each slate on Tuesdays. Let’s get after it!

Josh Allen $8,500
There isn’t too much in depth analysis needed for a guy like Josh Allen when it comes to cash games. The Bills have a 30-point team implied total, by far the highest on the Week 9 main slate, and he accounts for nearly all of Buffalo’s trips to the end zone when you combine his rushing and passing numbers. Averaging 30.1 DraftKings points per game, Allen has shown not only the floor we’re looking for in cash, but also an elite ceiling. The only “knock” on Allen this week is his price at $8,500. Depending on how much value opens up on this slate for RB and WR, it might be difficult to fit him, but I wouldn’t fault anyone for starting their cash game build with Allen for Week 9.
