It’s finally here- Week 9 of the 2023 season, and the third DraftKings main slate. We are back offering you DFS advice to try and help you navigate your way to victories throughout the season. The players selected here are based on their price, their ability to hit value and likely ownership. The selections are leaning more towards GPP slates, rather than cash (50/50) slates. But let’s get into it

Dak Prescott @PHI ($6,500)
Welcome back to the fantasy quarterback top table Dak, we’ve missed you! Prescott finished as QB3 on the week, thanks to his 4 touchdown performance in Dallas’ slaughtering of the Rams at AT&T last Sunday afternoon. Unsurprisingly his 4 scores were a season best, as were the 304 passing yards Dak completed on his 25 completions. The bye week has clearly done wonders for the Cowboys passing game. I don’t know if Dak and CeeDee Lamb took a spa break together on their week off, but what I do know is the 14 targets Prescott gave his number one guy resulted in 12 catches for 158 yards and 2 scores. The Cowboys travel to the city of brotherly love to face the NFL’s top ranked side, and bitter divisional rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles. Philly may be 7-1 but they rank 30th against opposing QBs and are allowing over 260 passing yards per game. Stay in the flames with Dak and take advantage of his pricing while you can.
Derek Carr v CHI ($5,700)
It may not feel like it but Derek Carr has thrown for over 300 yards in each of his last 3 outings, putting up 20+ fantasy points in the process…I know, I didn’t believe it either. Week 8 saw the former Raider complete 19 of his 27 attempts for 310 yards and 2 touchdowns. Carr’s stats were massively inflated by 3 deep completions to speedster Rashid Shaheed, with the two combining on plays of 44, 51 and 58 yards, the latter of which went for a go-ahead touchdown in the 2nd quarter. The Saints play host to the Bears on Sunday giving Carr another opportunity to get loose and air it out in the dome against the 29th ranked Chicago pass defense. Will this finally be the week the New Orleans QB and his favourite target Chris Olave get on the same page*, or will we see another 15 dump offs to Alvin Kamara? Either way, both will result in a solid fantasy day for Carr making him a solid start at $5700. *please fantasy gods, let Chris Olave have a good game.
