    you’ll find a list of players I have spotlighted for daily fantasy selections
    leading into the ninth week of the NFL season. I’m mostly looking for affordable
    options who will provide good value.I use the following criteria to try and find
    players — NFL Vegas totals, NFL team stats, what the fantasy gurus are saying
    and my GUT.Without further ado, let’s see who’s made my list of five players
    this week!Nick Chubb, RB BrownsPhoto by Joe Sargent/Getty ImagesThere are a
    plethora of reasons why Nick Chubb is a great pick on Sunday. For starters,
    Chubb has averaged 6.1 yards per carry this season. The Browns are also under
    the control of new head coach Gregg Williams.Williams is a defensive-minded
    coach, and defensive guys love to run the ball. I wouldn’t be surprised if Chubb
    had over 20 carries on Sunday.The Browns are also facing the Chiefs who have
    given up the second-most fantasy points on average to running backs in the NFL
    (25.9). All of these factors should lead to Chubb having a solid game.Devin
    Funchess, WR PanthersPhoto by Grant Halverson/Getty ImagesI understand Devin
    Funchess isn’t exactly having a great season. However, the Panthers/Buccaneers
    game has a Vegas total of 55 points, so points should be flowing in Carolina.The
    Bucs also have one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL — they’re currently
    giving up the third-most fantasy points to wide receivers per game (31.1).With
    the game likely being a shootout according to
    Vegas Womens
    Larry Johnson Jersey
    , and the Bucs’ issues on defense, I like Funchess’
    chances to put up decent numbers in this game.Brandin Cooks, WR RamsPhoto by
    John McCoy/Getty ImagesBrandin Cooks may cost more than the typical players I
    suggest on our weekly fantasy plays, but I believe he will be worth it this
    week.Cooks is averaging 18.4 yards per reception which makes him one of the
    better deep threats in the NFL. In case you missed it, the Rams have been
    throwing the ball all over the field.I suspect the Saints defense — which gives
    up the most points against wide receivers per game (35.9) — will give up a lot
    of fantasy points to Cooks.O.J. Howard, TE BuccaneersPhoto by Julio
    Aguilar/Getty ImagesRemember that 55-point spread between the Panthers and Bucs
    earlier? Well, we’re using it again as part of our reasoning for picking O.J.
    Howard.The Panthers have given up the most fantasy points per game to tight ends
    so far in 2018 (12.7). Add this into likelihood this game ends up being a
    shootout, and Howard should have a good game.Isaiah Crowell, RB JetsPhoto by
    Mike Stobe/Getty ImagesIsaiah Crowell has 484 rushing yards so far on the
    season, and 321 of them came in two games. This means the other six games for
    Crowell have left more than to be
    desired.However Len
    Dawson Jersey
    , I believe Crowell can have another one of his big games in
    Week 9 due to the Dolphins’ issues with their run defense.Currently, the
    Dolphins are allowing the eighth-most yards per rushing attempt in the NFL
    (4.6). The Dolphins also allow the third most fantasy points per game to running
    backs in the NFL (24.8).Add all these factors together, and it might be worth
    taking a risk on Crowell. If he explodes and has a huge game, he could provide
    incredible value. In this case, Crowell is a high risk/high reward decision.Last
    week I chose Kareem Hunt as the Chiefs fantasy player of the week. Hunt had a
    fair day by his standards, accumulating 86 all-purpose yards (16 carries, 5
    receptions) and a receiving touchdown.This week’s Chiefs fantasy pick of the
    week is...Chiefs D/STThe last time I picked the Chiefs D/ST as my “Chiefs pick
    of the week” — they absolutely manhandled the Jaguars offense.Photo by Peter
    Aiken/Getty ImagesI’m picking the Chiefs defense yet again, and for the
    following reasons:The Browns have given up the 10th most fantasy points per game
    to D/ST (8.25).Cleveland averages 4.9 yards per offensive play — fourth worst in
    the NFL.The Browns have thrown the eighth-most interceptions on the year.Tyreek
    Hill (if available) can score against the Browns special teams unit.If Hill
    isn’t available, Tremon Smith can score against the Browns special teams unit,
    too.Baker Mayfield is still
    learning ,
    and Bob Sutton can be pretty good at drawing mistakes out of young
    quarterbacks.The ‘18 Chiefs offense is so different, Travis Kelce was speechless
    Travis Kelce took the podium for his first press conference of the regular
    season Wednesday, as the Kansas City Chiefs began preparing for their Week 1
    matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers. Believe it or not, if you include his
    injured year in 2013, it is the start of Kelce’s sixth campaign with the
    team.There is a stark difference in 2018, of course, as it will be his first
    year working with a quarterback other than Alex Smith, the Chiefs turning the
    organizational reins over to second-year QB Patrick Mahomes this offseason.Photo
    by Peter Aiken/Getty ImagesKelce no doubt has a different manner to him early in
    2018—and I find it to be a good thing. His approach to each press opportunity is
    cool, calm and collected, like that of someone who knows he is a team
    leader Womens
    Orlando Scandrick Jersey
    , a role he may need to play this season.Even at
    the ripe age of 28, Kelce is one of the eldest Chiefs on the starting
    offense.Kelce was asked early on in the press conference about how the Chiefs’
    offense may be different with Mahomes than with Smith in previous seasons, and
    the question gave him pause. “’s uh...without saying too much it’s,
    um...”Well what is it?“I can’t really—I don’t want to give away too much of the
    secret,” Kelce finally said. “It’s going to be fun to get out there. It’s new
    for everybody, so I think it’s something everyone can really get excited about,
    even the fans.”But would he say there are going to be some tangible
    differences?“Oh, without a doubt,” he said, this time more sure of himself.
    “Definitely some differences in a good way.”At this
    point Reggie
    Ragland Jersey
    , we had to know, right?So I asked Mahomes—what is the 2018
    brand of Chiefs football?“We want to attack every aspect of the field,” Mahomes
    said. “I feel like we have the weapons to attack short, we can run the ball, we
    can stretch the defense deep, we can attack the middle with the guys that we
    have. “We just want to make sure that we have to keep the defense honest on
    every single play. They can't send everybody back and try to cover the deep
    ball—we’ll run the ball on them. And then if they bring everybody in the box, we
    want to be able to attack them deep.“We just want to make sure we can attack
    everywhere on the field.” It sounds like it could be a bit for the Chargers to
    manage. Four more days until we find out.
