Week 8 was easily our most profitable week in daily fantasy sports (DFS) as we correctly identified two of the top five running backs of the week and nailed the Michael Pittman and Chris Godwin plays.
Week 9 will be more difficult, though, both for DFS and for NFL betting as there are multiple starting quarterbacks listed as out or questionable to play. However, there is value to be had in a few QB-WR stacks. So without further ado, let’s get to our best bets and favorite plays!

Best Week 9 DFS Stacks
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson ($7,300) and WR Marquise Brown ($6,000)
Jackson and the Ravens are coming off a bye week and it couldn't have happened at a better time. In Week 9, they'll take on the Vikings, who just allowed over 400 yards of offense to Cooper Rush and the Cowboys. Jackson is averaging over 26 DFS points per game this season and has scored fewer than 20 points just once. He is about as consistent as they come and this is his cheapest price ($7,300) of the year.
And if you are going to play Jackson, you must play Marquise "Hollywood" Brown, as well. The former Oklahoma receiver is averaging 81 yards per game this season and 19.4 DFS points. In the team's four home games, he's averaging just under ten targets per game and 88.3 yards. With the Vikings being decimated in the secondary, Brown should be in for another big game on Sunday.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa ($5,800) and Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle ($5,600)
In the four games in which Tagovailoa has started and finished this season, he’s averaged 21.8 DFS points per game. He’s been much better this season than people want to admit and now his Dolphins are a 6.5-point favorite over the Texans in Miami.
If you do decide to start Tagovailoa this week, you must stack him with Jaylen Waddle. Over the last three weeks with Tagovailoa back in the lineup, Waddle has averaged 11 targets per game. While that hasn't always resulted in fantasy production, his usage suggests big performances are coming. So find a way to get Waddle into your lineups this week against one of the worst defenses in the NFL.

Falcons QB Matt Ryan ($5,600) and TE Kyle Pitts ($5,900)
Matt Ryan is averaging 18.6 DFS points per game this season, but he has actually been a much better road quarterback. In three road games this season, he is averaging 293 passing yards per game and two touchdowns. They’ll be facing the Saints on Sunday, but Ryan has had a lot of success against their defense in the past. He is a fine mid-priced quarterback this week and a good stack with rookie phenom Kyle Pitts.

Jerry Jeudy returned to the lineup in Week 8 for the Broncos and had some moderate success. He caught all four of his targets for 39 yards and played most of the game. But he has a much juicer matchup in Week 9 as the Broncos will face the Cowboys in Dallas.
The Cowboys have allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing receivers and Jeudy should feel more comfortable with his ankle after playing on it a week ago. So don't be surprised if he is the leading receiver for the Broncos on Sunday, as he should get close to double-digit targets.

Another player that is worth considering this week is Darren Waller. The Pro Bowl tight end missed Week 7 due to an ankle injury and the Raiders were on bye in Week 8. He is not listed on the injury report for the Raiders this week, which suggests he is fully healthy.
Without Henry Ruggs, the Raiders will need to rely more on Waller to help move the offense up and down the field. He should see at least seven targets in this game, but don’t be surprised if that total is much, much higher.
