The NFL has surpassed the halfway points. DraftKings is a great opportunity to use your football knowledge to make some money and there’s only eight weeks left!
Welcome to Week 9 of the NFL season. The fantasy season is in full swing and DraftKings is continuing to pay big prizes every week.
Before jumping into Week 9’s plays, let’s take a look back at Week 8’s lineup.
QB: Andy Dalton
RB: Melvin Gordon
RB: James White
WR: Julio Jones
WR: Devin Funchess
WR: Nelson Agholor
TE: Jason Witten
FLEX: Josh Doctson
D/ST: New Orleans Saints
Unfortunately Melvin Gordon’s injury scared me away and completely changed this lineup. I should have stuck with my gut because the lineup I actually used did not make any money. I’m not sure if this lineup would have either but Gordon had a big game despite the injury. Missing out on any of the Seattle or Houston players cost me money for sure.

Week 9 is another week with six teams on a bye. Those teams are the Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns, Los Angeles Chargers, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, and Pittsburgh Steelers. Those are some high powered offenses and useful fantasy players.
That being said there are great matchups all over and a few that may surprise. Kicking things off is the quarterback position.
