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.

Lamar Jackson $7,300
Jackson and the Ravens come out of the bye to face Mike Zimmer’s Vikings at home, who just let Cooper Rush throw for 325 yards and two TDs a week ago. On the defensive side of the ball, they’re down top corner Patrick Peterson and top pass rusher Danielle Hunter, further improving Baltimore’s overall outlook on offense here. Despite all the haters on the internet that called Lamar Jackson “just a running back,” Baltimore’s offense ranks 9th in EPA per pass and 6th in pass success rate. Meanwhile, Baltimore’s offense has transformed into a balanced approach rather than a ground and pound run-first team, which has led to Lamar being on pace for career highs in attempts, yards, and yards per attempt. When you combine Lamar’s passing volume and his rushing ability, he’s got one of the best combinations of floor and ceiling on the Week 9 slate.
