Laser Focused Fantasy: Week 9


Nathan Laser '21, Fantasy Sports Guru

Love: Deejay Dallas @ Buf 

With Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde out again this week everyone is turning to Deejay Dallas. This happened last week and he was getting it done by getting a rushing and receiving touchdown. I don’t see anything changing with him this week. The Seahawks have such a high powered offense it is hard to stop every weapon they have. I predict Dallas will put up at least 15 points this week. 

Love: Marvin Jones Jr. @ Min 

With Kenny Golladay out this week, Stafford only has Marvin Jones Jr. to throw to now. They played against the number one WR defense last week who were the Colts and he still scored two touchdowns. The Vikings have the 30th ranked WR defense so it is very likely Marvin Jones Jr. will be able to put those numbers up again this week. 

Hate: Ezekiel Elliott vs. Pit 

Ever since Dak went down Elliott has been on a decline. Teams know that the passing game isn’t a threat now so all they have to worry about is Elliott. The undefeated Steelers and their high powered defense knows this too. Dallas is also on their forth string QB so not only do I hate Elliott I hate the whole Cowboys offense. 

Hate: Jonathan Taylor vs. Bal 

Last week Taylor struggled and only scored 5 points and he lost some of his carries to Nyheim Hines. Taylor is also battling an ankle injury but, the Colts said that he has been in full participation at practice. Even if Taylor is healthy he is still playing against a tough Baltimore defense who has been stopping the run all year. 

Hope my advice helps and good luck in all of your matchups this week!
