FanDuel Week 9 Slate Breakdown with Cash and GPP Picks
In this space each week, I give my overall FanDuel cash game and tournament strategy thoughts and discuss how players fit into these strategies. By offering a general approach to the week, along with a player pool to consider, you should walk away feeling well-equipped no matter your bankroll strategy or game selection process. For those new to 4for4, we use a proprietary value metric to determine the best values across all positions, rather than the flawed raw point-per-dollar value you usually find across the industry. An extension of our value metric and projections is our GPP Leverage Score, a single value that drives our decisions on which players we can be most confident using in GPPs as it relates to their expected ownership in large-field tournaments.
Main Slate Cash Game Strategy
Using the 4for4 Lineup Generator as a proxy, the overwhelming preference to maximize value is to pay up for Russell Wilson ($8,600) against Tampa Bay’s woeful secondary. The Buccaneers rank 31st in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed (aFPA) to quarterbacks and Wilson has been the most efficient fantasy passer this season, leading the league in fantasy points per pass attempt (rushing excluded). Seattle is the only team on the main slate with an implied total over 28 points and given Tampa Bay's prowess against the run, the most likely scenario is that Wilson accounts for a massive portion of the Seahawks offense this week. As one of two players with at least 14 FanDuel points in every game this season—Lamar Jackson being the other—there isn’t a comparable floor at the position.
