All your weekly fantasy needs in one piece. These are our predictions for Schemers and Streamers for week 9 of the NFL Season.
Derek Carr (@ LAC)
I’m expecting a bit of a bounce back game here. The wind played a huge factor in some games last week and one of them was the Raiders game. This is a great match-up in the Chargers! The Chargers just gave up 248 yards and 3 touchdowns to Drew Lock so I expect Carr to get back to him normal stat line.
Drew Lock (@ ATL)
Lock finally showed up in a favorable match-up against the Chargers last week. This week he gets an even more favorable match-up with the Falcons. I like Lock to keep things rolling!
Gus Edwards (@ IND)
Not a great match-up here but again like I said last week the Ravens have to run the ball 45-55 times a game to be successful. Edwards did well last week and would of easily had more rushing attempts then Dobbins if he didn’t leave for a brief period with a minor injury. Edwards will out touch Dobbins and again outperform him. The volume will be there in a tough match-up
Justin Jackson (v LV)
I’ll say it agian, Justin Jackson is the lead back for the LA Chargers. He saw 20 touches last week and will see a very favorable defense in Las Vegas this week. The volume will be there once again for Jackson!
Damien Harris (@ NYJ)
Love the match-up here and when Harris is healthy he is the clear cut lead back for New England. The Jets have yielded 130 yards and almost 1 touchdown per game to opposing running backs this year!
Wayne Gallman (@ WAS)
Tough match-up but I can see Gallman getting 10-15 touches this week. He is clearly the Giants goalline back so no need to worry about any other back vulturing touchdowns either.
John Brown (v SEA)
Great match-up and Brown is healthy. Brown logged a complete game last week with no set backs. Consider his health and the match-up I can see typical John Brown numbers here, something close to 4 or 5 catches for about 60 yards and a touchdown.
Chase Claypool (DAL)
Claypool should see alot of Diggs who is giving up 1.9 fantasy points per target. The Steelers have been lining him up all over the field but its the Cowboys and it really shouldn’t even matter. Claypool should shred this defense if given the opportunity.
Mike Williams (LV)
Williams has seen at least 8 targets over the past 3 games and his individual match-up is favorable. Williams should see alot of Nevin Lawson who is giving up 2.11 fantasy points per target this year.
Darnell Mooney (TEN)
Bears offense hasn’t been great but this is the best individual WR/CB match-up of them all from a fantasy points per target perspective. Mooney should see alot of Tye Smith who has given up 10.11 yards per reception, 9.1 yards per target and a whopping 3.01 fantasy points per target!
Rob Gronkowski (NO)
Gronk over the past 3 weeks ranks as TE number 2. I like Gronk this week even with Godwin coming back and Antonio Brown making his debut. At the end of the day Brady has the most confidence in Gronk and their relationship is unmatched.
Jordan Akins (@ JAX)
Love the match-up here as the Jags have struggled all year to tight ends and have given up 7 touchdowns to tight ends in 7 games this year. Akins averaged 3.5 catches through 4 games before his concussion and I like Akins to see about 5-6 catches this week and a touchdown!
WASHINGTON DST v Giants
TEXANS DST v Jaguars
CARDINALS DST v Dolphins
