Week 9 Tipsy Picks
Tipsy Picks Week 9
Extreme Values. Miracle dependent plays. One-off shots off the beaten path!
You’ll need a few beers or a stiff pour of bourbon to stomach these picks…
Going a different route this week. I am going to concentrate on just a guy or two for each position. Have real conviction in my craziness…
Teddy Bridgewater $6,000 vs LVR (1.1%)
This is the week Emrick has been waiting for! Teddy going to be in that Milly Maker Lineup. Count it! CMC is back and will rightfully get a bunch of attention (just look at the points KC is giving up to stud backs) and Teddy is going to have a good chance of tossing some very accurate deep balls to Robby Anderson. I LOVE this matchup as it is shaping up to be a game that could be garbage time from the start of the second half.

Brian Hill $4,000 vs DEN (0.1%)
Every year there is a point in the season that Todd Gurley starts to wear down. His knee needs rest, and his team isn’t competing in their division this year. Denver just gave up over 200 combined rushing yards against the Chargers last week and has every single position on the D line manned by second stringers. If you look at the overall stats they rank very good against the run and some people might overlook the points put up against them last week. I would not be surprised to see Hill lead touches and production from the backfield this week.
Other Cost Saving Options:
Justin Jackson $4,900
J.K. Dobbins $4,900
Tony Pollard $4,000
Larry Fitzgerald $3,800 vs MIA (0.6%)
Savvy veterans coming off of bye weeks with a nice matchup against a poor slot corner are spots I like to visit. His last 3 games before the bye week re recorded 8/4/7 targets and is seeing his snap share rise. At 3.8k in a game that Kirk and DHop are getting a bunch of love, I like the idea of this pivot. I want to get to two of CMC, Cook, Connor or Robinson so I need to save salary. You could do worse.
Michael Gallup $4,000 vs PIT (1.6%)
Complete unknown at QB (if you didn’t follow Chris Emrick on his AAF coverage) against a team with a killer Defense, you might be thinking I hit the bottle a bit too hard. But here’s the deal. Go back and look at the games and see the HUGE plays the Steelers D has given up. They are winning games but each week someone seems to get behind that secondary for a big gain. For me that week it’s Michael Gallup, he leads the cowboys in ADOT and has game-breaking talent. I have no doubt Gilbert will try to throw the ball 50+ times and I am ok picking a prime target of those attempts.

Darnell Mooney $3,900
Marvin Hall $3,200
Marcus Johnson $3,000
