The advice you’ll find here is generated using point spreads and over/under lines to maximize the number of points scored by the recommended lineup each week.
Here is a lineup for Week 9 that I believe will help give you an edge.
Quarterback: Tom Brady, New England Patriots
Quarterback Tom Brady has completed 68.9 percent of his passes for 2,410 yards and a 20 to 1 touchdown-to-interception ratio. The Redskins’ pass defense is allowing the ninth most net yards per pass this season (6.9).
Running back: Mark Ingram, New Orleans Saints
The injury to Khiry Robinson should get Ingram even more red-zone touches.
Running back:Doug Martin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Per Rich Hribar of Rotoworld, leads the league in rushing yards (230 yards on 30 attempts) on runs outside of either tackle. Their opponent, the New York Giants, allow 5.4 yards per carry on those runs, 10th highest in the league.
Wide receiver: Allen Hurns, Jacksonville Jaguars
With Allen Robinson being covered by the Jets’ Darrelle Revis, that should open things up for Hurns, who has five catches and two touchdowns on targets 20 or more yards downfield.
Wide receiver: Malcom Floyd, San Diego Chargers
Wide receiver: Steve Johnson, San Diego Chargers
Chargers’ quarterback Philip Rivers leads the NFL in passing attempts (348), with Keenan Allen seeing a team high 25.4 percent of those targets. Now that Allen will miss the remainder of the season with a lacerated kidney, those will likely be soaked up by Floyd and Johnson.
More targets equal more chances to score touchdowns against The Chicago Bears, who have allowed the third most passing touchdowns this season (16).
Tight end: Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots
Gronkowski has 40 catches on 60 targets for 646 yards and seven touchdowns. The Redskins, like most teams in the league, have no one who can defend him.
Defense: New Orleans Saints
The Saints opponent, the Tennessee Titans, rank in the bottom three for points scored per drive (1.45) and yards per drive (26.5) this season.
Kicker: Robbie Gould, Chicago Bears
The Bears score a touchdown in the red zone just 47.4 percent of the time, making this a good opportunity for Gould to score some points.
