It’s Week 9 of the NFL season, and with plenty of teams on a bye, there will be less players to choose from when building the ideal DraftKings lineup.
DraftKings is a fun alternative to regular fantasy football. The challenge is picking a successful lineup out of hundreds of players and then putting that lineup up against hundreds of thousands of other ones. It’s a fun way to root for multiple players on gamedays. Let’s check out this week’s lineup.
Best DraftKings lineup for Week 9
QB: Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars ($5,200)
Trevor Lawrence stunk it up last week (133 yards, a touchdown, and two picks) and the Jags still almost beat the Broncos. It was a minor scuff on Lawrence’s sophomore campaign that hasn’t been terribly bad. He’s been a decent fantasy streaming option, and has seen four top-12 finishes so far.
This week, the matchup for Lawrence is perfect. The Jags take on the reeling Raiders who just got shut out by the New Orleans Saints in a game where Andy Dalton threw for 229 yards and two touchdowns. Lawrence is much more explosive and can carve up leaky defenses, which the Raiders have. They allow the eighth-most passing yards per game. Lawrence will be the value of the week at quarterback.
