“The Coaches Playbook” – Week 9 Review

For the second week in a row, Dalvin Cook destroyed the slate as he ran for 206 yards and added two touchdown as the Vikings took down the Lions 34-20.

Christian McCaffery returned from injury and put up a huge game against Kansas City, but early reports are that he injured his shoulder and could be sidelined once again.

Fantasy studs Patrick Mahomes and Kyler Murray continued to dominate at the quarterback position as they each tallied four total touchdowns on the day.

One of the stacks of the week with Drew Lock and Jerry Jeudy was a pair that we liked this week to save salary, and it was the QB/WR combination that took down the million-dollar prize on DraftKings.

We had some great lineups going heading into the late games, but it is 2020 and we cannot have nice things. Looking at you Justin Jackson…

Let’s take a look at how our coaches picks went in Week 9!

Chalky as it may have been, five out of six coaches picked Cook as their favorite cash play and he did not disappoint with 42.2 DraftKings fantasy points and 38.2 FanDuel fantasy points. Any lineups including that for a start was well on their way to cashing.

For favorite tournament play, @snoopAloop_3’s call of Keenan Allen ranked first for the week (28.4 DK FP | 20.9 FD FP) while @bellmar21’s call of Stefon Diggs (23.8 DK FP | 16.3 FD FP) was also a solid call.

The Kansas City stack was one that you wanted to be part of this week as three of our coaches (@HQGolfGuy, @bellmar21 and @VGo07) tabbed them as their favorite. The three man stack of Mahomes, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelcie, although expensive, returned 99.5 DK FP on Sunday.

@HQGolfGuy nailed the best game stack of the week with the Chiefs and the Panthers. Along with the stack mentioned above, the Carolina stack of Teddy Bridgewater, Curtis Samuel and McCaffery totaled 98.2 DK FP.

Two touchdown calls came through this week as @snoopAloop_3 stayed perfect on the year with Will Fuller while @KyleDillard20 finally got on the board with a Julio Jones touchdown.

Marvin Jones Jr. was the pick of @KyleDillard20, @HQGolfGuy and @bellmar21 who returned 13.3 DK FP at a $5,100 price tag but @snoopAloop_3’s call of Danny Amendola returned 4x his value with 14.9 DK FP at $3,700.

@nickfromcwe called one of the best values on FanDuel this week with Jeudy as he put up 22 FD FP for just $5,700.
