We had another exciting NFL week, and of course, because it is 2020 the two highest scorers this week were Chase Claypool (45.60 DraftKings points) and Travis Fulgham (34.20 DK). Along with that, Ryan Fitzpatrick keeps trying to fend off rookie Tua Tagovailoa, leading the Dolphins to a 43-17 beating of the 49ers.

As expected, after a week where Brandin Cooks failed to catch a ball, he puts up an 8/161/1 stat line to the tune of 33.10 DK points. Fun times in the fantasy world!

With this week’s main slate in the books, let’s take a look back on how our coaches faired in their picks for last weeks “Coaches Playbook”.

For favorite cash game play, both @nickfromcwe and @HQGolfGuy slotted in the highest scoring running back of the week with Mike Davis (29.9 DK | 25.4 FD) as he continued his productive season filling in for the injured Christian McCaffery. @VGo07 had a great call with Todd Gurley also picking the second highest scoring running back of the week (28 DK | 23 FD).

@snoopAloop_3 had the best call for favorite tournament play with Calvin Ridley (24.6 DK/17.6 FD) as he bounced back from a zero catch Monday night performance with 8/136. @VGo07 had a solid choice with Tyreek Hill (18.3 DK  | 16.8 FD) as he found the end zone for Kansas City.

Despite falling to Raiders, the Chiefs put up a ton of points for @HQGolfGuy and @bellmar21. The combination of Mahomes, Hill, Kelcie and either Edwards-Helaire or Watkins scored just over 90 DK points. @snoopAloop_3 had a great call on the Steelers stack who also surpassed 90 DK points, but you had to get a little wild using Roethlisberger, Conner, Claypool and Ebron.

Kansas City and Las Vegas was one of the best game stacks of the week, called by @bellmar21 while @HQGolfGuy and @snoopAloop_3 each had a solid call with Carolina and Atlanta.

The game stack that was surprisingly one of the highest scoring of the week was Pittsburgh and Philadelphia granted you needed to have Claypool and Fulgham together.

Not much fantasy production game from the Colts versus Browns matchup as called by @nickfromcwe and @ VGo07. As a team, Indianapolis stack barely cracked 40 points while after Odell Beckham Jr.’s monster game last week came back to earth with just over 11 DK points.

DraftKings had solid value calls this week from @nickfromcwe and @snoopAloop_3 with Darius Slayton (4.8k | 23.9 DK) and @bellmar21 picking Teddy Bridgewater (5.9k | 23.8 DK). On the FanDuel side, both @nickfromcwe and @snoopAloop_3 went with CeeDee Lamb (5.9k | 16.4) while @HQGolfGuy kept riding Robbie Anderson (6.2k | 15.5 FD) to another solid performance.
