Week 9: Dr. Roto's DFS Plays

The one and only Dr. Roto has his own set of DFS picks to get you cashing your lineups in Week 9.

Daily Dr. Roto — November 4, 2016

DFS Plays for Week 9


Aaron Rodgers — No QB in the NFL is playing at a higher level than Rodgers is right now. The lack of a true running game will only continue to help his numbers across the board. He is the obvious cash game play.

Andrew Luck — Luck has been on a hot streak recently, and there is no reason to think it will stop against Green Bay. The Packers have done an excellent job of stopping the run in 2016, so that means if the Colts are going to stay in this game, Luck will have to air it out.

Philip Rivers — The Titans are very susceptible to the pass and although Rivers might be missing Benjamin and/or Henry he is a sneaky start who will be low owned.

Dak Prescott — The Browns have given up two passing TDs to every QB they have faced except last week vs. Fitzpatrick. Dak should be able to take advantage of a weak secondary and play well.

Ryan Tannehill — Just Play Tannehill (against a Jets defense that has forgotten how to defend against the pass)

Nick Foles — The Jaguars are a mess right now, and Foles won’t be afraid to throw it downfield and take some chances again this young Jaguars secondary.

Running Backs

Ezekiel Elliott — He is a virtual lock for 100 yards rushing and a TD every weekend.

Le’Veon Bell — Regardless of who the QB is, look for Bell to get his usual 25-30 touches and put up close to 20 points in DFS.

Melvin Gordon — He is getting 25-30 touches which gives him about 16 points a week. If he scores a TD, he is over 20 points, making him an excellent start.

Mark Ingram — People might be thinking Tim Hightower after last week’s performance. I am thinking “I get Ingram low owned as a contrarian play.”

Charcandrick West — This week’s free square the minute that Ware is officially declared out. A must play in cash games and GPP.

Christine Michael — Some games are Michael games and some games (like last week) are not. This week is a Michael game, and I see him with 80-90 yards and a TD.

Ty Montgomery — He’s going to RB team meetings, and James Starks is expected to miss another week, making Montgomery a guy I will have in every lineup.

Wide Receivers

Jarvis Landry — The Jets are struggling against the pass, and no one runs crisper routes than Landry.

Davante Adams — As bad as he looked last year is as good as he has looked in the last three weeks. He makes for a great Packers stack with Rodgers and Montgomery in cash games.

Terrelle Pryor — Morris Claiborne and Barry Church are out giving Pryor all kinds of space to get open.

Allen Robinson — Blake Bortles is the King of Garbage time, and if the Jaguars are down in the fourth quarter, I can see ARob catching a late TD.

Kenny Britt — The Panthers have been horrific against the pass and Britt has been on fire this year.

Tyrell Williams — If he plays there is no one on the Titans who can match his size in the red zone.

Devante Parker — I like Tannehill to air it out this week, giving Parker his best chance for a good game. A real flyer.

Michael Thomas — He’s been the Saints go-to WR for the past few weeks, and I think that continues on the road where Cooks and Snead often struggle.

Tight Ends

Greg Olsen — Cam is going to need to find him early and often if the Panthers want to win this on the road.

Gary Barnidge — Dallas has been soft vs. the TE all season, and McCown loves throwing to him.

Kyle Rudolph — The Lions are the worst team vs. the TE in the entire NFL.

Jason Witten — The Browns struggle vs. the TE and Dak found him last week for a score.

Lance Kendricks — He puts up 10-12 points every week in a PPR for a discounted price.

Antonio Gates — With Hunter Henry unlikely to play, look for Rivers to find Gates in the red zone.
