NFL DFS FanDuel GPP Picks Week 9 (Fantasy Football)
Building winning GPP lineups, by definition, is tough. There are, however, some key things to look for when filling out your roster. First and foremost is ceiling; we want the players with the potential to score the most points. Next is leverage; we want the players that fall through the cracks. Finally, we have to build a lineup that tells a winning story through game script and stacking.
For a deeper dive into GPP strategy, make sure to check out the Tournament Strategy episode that Borg and Betz put out over the offseason, and make sure to stay locked into the DFS and Betting Podcast.
A final note before diving into the picks. Don’t ignore Borg’s Cash Picks article. It pairs perfectly with my GPP picks article, as it’s typically a good idea to mix in some value plays, especially if they fit the GPP-winning story you write.
Lamar Jackson vs. SEA – $8,600
Lamar fell on his face last week, at least from a DFS perspective. He’s in a nice bounce-back spot this week at home against a Seattle team that’s ranked 17th in fantasy points allowed to QBs, but that drops to 27th when adjusted for schedule. The Ravens are tied with the Eagles for the highest team-implied point total on the slate (25), and Gus Edwards isn’t likely to score on three short runs again this week. Skinny stacks with Lamar and Mark Andrews or Zay Flowers make a ton of sense.
