Primetime DFS Slate Breakdown: Week 9
The Week 9 Primetime slate has the undefeated defending champion New England Patriots visiting the 5-2 Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night while NFC East divisional rivals Dallas and the Giants face off on Monday Night in New York. The Monday Night game projects to have more fantasy points, but as always there will be plays we will want to make from both games.
Let's break down the games and how we can find the edge that will get us to the top of the standings.
- Rex Burkhead, NE, RB - Questionable
- Julian Edelman, NE, WR - Questionable
- James White, NE, RB - Questionable
- Matt LaCosse, NE, TE - Questionable
- Ryan Izzo, NE, TE - Questionable
- Marquise Brown, BAL, WR - Questionable
- No notable injuries from MNF game
James White popped up on the injury report at the last minute this week. He is someone I have a ton of interest in if he plays (more so than Sony Michel), but if he is unable to go, you might as well just lock-and-load Rex Burkhead into your lineups. If there are any reports of White being limited, I'd take shots with Burkhead for sure. Brown may not have usual workload according to beat writer reports but facing off against the Patriots CB's, he's not one I was going to have a ton of interest in anyway. Keep an eye on the news leading into Sunday Night and adjust your lineups accordingly. Edelman is expected to play and there are no notable injuries for the Monday Night game at the time of publication of this article.
