NFL DFS FanDuel Cash Picks for Week 9 (Fantasy Football)
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. On the Fantasy Footballers DFS Podcast, Betz and myself will dive into a couple of these but this article is intended for DFS Pass subscribers to get the full lay of the land.
Note: Remember on FD the pricing for QBs is bunched together so seemingly “expensive” players. I personally like paying up for QBs on this site and prize rushing QBs even more than on DK.
Patrick Mahomes vs GB- $8,500
I know it’s been tough in the streets with Mahomes but we’re also seeing insane volume from him on pace for 690 pass attempts! He ranks 1st in pass success rate, 2nd in pass rate when leading and 1st when trailing. We know the Chiefs want to throw, throw, and throw some more. The Packers aren’t exactly pristine in the pass defense department allowing the 2nd highest TE success rate (hello Travis Kelce GPP plays!) and the 10th worst 3rd down success rate. I’ll lean into the seven point favorite and a chance to jump in with Mahomes at a relative discount from what we normally see.
