Recommended Lineup Week 9 All lineups are based off of a $1,000,000 salary cap featured at Daily Joust, you best option in daily fantasy sports gaming. Lineups consist of a quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end, one kicker and one team defense. Teams are created for contests including all Sunday and Monday games. QB: Carson Palmer (OAK) vs. TB--$150,000--This may not be the sexiest pick at the quarterback position this week, but at his current price Carson Palmer is a great deal this week. The Buccaneers have allowed five touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks over their last two games, which should result in a heavy passing attack from Palmer and the Raiders this weekend.   RB: Marshawn Lynch (SEA) vs. MIN--$118,000--The Vikings did not give up a rushing touchdown to opposing running backs until Week 6, but since then they have allowed one touchdown in each week. Marshawn Lynch is having a great season and should get a lot of carries in this game, so expect his solid production to continue this week.    RB: Isaac Redman (PIT) @ NYG--$74,000--With both Rashard Mendenhall and Jonathan Dwyer doubtful for Sunday’s game with the Giants so he is in line to receive the bulk of the carries out of the backfield. The Giants have allowed over 100 yards per game to opposing running backs through their first eight games so Redman is a great start this week considering his price tag.   WR: Brandon Marshall (CHI) @ TEN--$155,000--The Titans are giving up production to opposing wide receivers in bunches, including four touchdowns in their last four games. Jay Cutler has been looking Brandon Marshall’s way often since reuniting in Chicago and that is expected to be the same in this favorable matchup. WR: Randall Cobb (GB) vs. ARI--$150,000-- With Greg Jennings ruled out and Jordy Nelson questionable for this week’s matchup with the Cardinals, Randall Cobb is in line for increased action in the Packers offense once again. The Cardinals have given up four touchdowns to opposing wide receivers over their last two games, so that should mean a lot of production from Cobb this week. WR: Denarius Moore (OAK) vs. TB--$133,000--The Buccaneers are the third worst team against opposing wide receivers, allowing just under 30 fantasy points per game including 65 points over their last two games. Denarius Moore is clearly Carson Palmer’s favorite target and considering the amount of times the Raiders pass per game, he should get enough looks to produce for his current price tag. TE: Greg Olsen (CAR) @ WAS--$55,000-- The Panthers may be the most inconsistent offense in the league, but this week their passing game should take a few steps forward as they take of the Redskins. Against the tight end, the Redskins have allowed at least one touchdown in all but two games this season, so they clearly can’t stop the position making Greg Olsen a solid play this week. K: Blair Walsh (MIN) @ SEA--$80,000--The Seahawks are tough at home, especially in the red zone, which increases Blair Walsh’s value for this week. The Vikings will be lucky to get into end zone but should be able to move to ball close enough for Walsh to get a few field goal chances to produce more that his price tag indicates. DEF: Denver Broncos @ CIN--$85,000--In case fantasy players haven’t realized, the Broncos defense may be the most underrated group in the league. They completely shut down Drew Brees and the high octane Saints offense last week, so this matchup should be even better at the Bengals struggle against good defenses. Total Salary: $1,000,000 Value Picks for Week 9 Quarterbacks Ben Roethlisberger (PIT)--$177,000--The Giants have allowed 22 fantasy points and 19 fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks each of the last two weeks, and with the way the Steelers pass the ball, Big Ben should be right in that same area this week.   Matt Schaub (HOU)--$142,000--The Bills are giving up fantasy production to opposing quarterbacks in bunches this season including five touchdowns in their last three games, so Matt Schaub has a real shot to out produce his price tag. Running Backs Daniel Thomas (MIA)--$106,000--The Colts are giving up just over 20 fantasy points to opposing running backs this season and Daniel Thomas has been getting in the end zone lately so worth a shot if needed. Alex Green (ARI)--$69,000--This is more of a pricing selection because any starting running back priced under $70,000 is worth starting, even if it is a running back in a pass-heavy offense. Wide Receivers James Jones (GB)--$109,000--No Greg Jennings, likely no Jordy Nelson, so James Jones should get enough targets to outperform his rather cheap price tag. Titus Young (DET)--$103,000--The Lions are passing a lot lately and Titus Young has been targeted frequently with Calvin Johnson taking a lot of the attention, so start with confidence. Tight Ends Dallas Clark (TB)--$55,000--The Raiders are giving up a decent amount of production to opposing tight ends this season despite not allowing a touchdown over their last three games, but that should change this week. Logan Paulsen (WAS)--$42,000--The Panthers have trouble with opposing tight ends in the red zone this season and Logan Paulsen continues to have his role increased in the Redskins offense. Kickers Sebastian Janikowski (OAK)--$108,000 Matt Prater (DEN)--$97,000 Defense Cleveland Browns--$86,000 Detroit Lions--$85,000 To make setting your Fantasy Football lineup easy, be sure to utilize’s new NFL Lineup Grids.
