Week 9 Cash Game Picks on FanDuel
Cam Newton vs. TB $8,600
Cam Newton has put up at least 25 fantasy points in three straight games. If he can put up 28 against arguably the best defensive team in football, he can do it against the worst. Newton has at least two passing touchdowns in six straight games and leads all QBs in rushing yards as well as rushing touchdowns. Tampa Bay has allowed the most points and fantasy points to QBs. Football Outsiders has them as the worst defense overall and against the pass. They are allowing more passing yards per game than any other team playing this week and have given up a league-high 20 passing touchdowns.
Drew Brees vs. LAR $8,400
The Los Angeles Rams have been pretty decent defensively, ranking inside the Top-10 when it comes to the fewest yards, passing yards and points per game. With that said, they haven’t played a lot of great offensive teams. Minnesota put up 31 on them in Week 4 and Green Bay dropped 27 on them last week. Now they have to go into New Orleans and face Drew Brees. This has shootout written all over it as the 59 point total is the highest of the week. Brees has an 83.5 completion percentage at home while averaging 348 passing yards per game. That compared to 236 passing yards per game on the road.
