Cobb among our Week 9 FanDuel GPP plays
Week 9 brings a truckload of screaming value plays that will not only be covered in chalk themselves, but make it easier to roster a diminished number of expensive elite options. Last week’s injury apocalypse created that value, and it’s conspiring with the heaviest bye week of 2015 (six teams) to narrow focus onto a handful of studs. While there are always ways to differentiate our lineups, we have fewer at our disposal in Week 9. With most of the attention being paid to the top and bottom of the salary list, let’s primarily highlight the mid-range options.
They will act as needed lineup differentiators, whether you sprinkle in a few, or pack your lineup with them exclusively. Another way to vary lineup construction, especially in a week featuring so much value, is to not be afraid of leaving a few bucks on the table. We shouldn’t feel obliged to spend that last $400 if it means rearranging a lineup configuration that we really like. Just because we can’t roll it over to next week (wouldn’t that be great?), doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a sharp move to spend it all.
On with the FanDuel tournament picks.
