Langford is a lock as Week 9 punt play
Week 9 is here and we’ve got our shopping cart loaded with blue light specials for your NFL DFS lineups. DraftKings continues to be friendliest site in terms of low-cost options, providing us with excellent value at the skill positions this weekend. Each week, I’ll feature the top punt options at running back and wide receiver that present the most value for your daily fantasy lineups.
Jeremy Langford, Bears – FanDuel $6,400, DraftKings $4,000, Yahoo $14
Don’t be fooled by the mind games that head coach John Fox is playing with the media about Matt Forte, insisting that his star running back is “day-to-day” throughout the week before finally ruling him out late Friday. We were given the same vague injury updates on Alshon Jeffery early on this season, and he ended up missing four weeks in total.
The Bears have more than injury as motivation to give Langford an extended look in the backfield. Chicago needs to know if they can trust the rookie 4th round pick as a workhorse back with Matt Forte heading to free agency this offseason. Langford is set up perfectly for prime production on Monday night, facing a San Diego defense that has graded out 31st against the run and dead last in overall defense in 2025. Lock Langford into your lineups across all three sites.
