Week 9 GPP Picks on FanDuel
Patrick Mahomes @ CLE $9,500
Playing on the road in Cleveland, after all the coaching changes may not be as easy for Patrick Mahomes and company as you think. The Browns have some players on defense and have been in most of their games this season. That said, nobody has really slowed down Mahomes and this offense yet. The Chiefs’ QB leads the league in passing yards (2,526) and passing touchdowns (26). He’s thrown at least four touchdowns in five games this season and in three straight games. The high price tag may result in a lower ownership than normal.
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.
