Ohhhhhh boy–Frank’s getting hot. And when Frank heats up, he becomes UNBEARABLE. Why my week may not seem that impressive, this is definitely the most combined points I’ve given out all year, and I even had a running back sleeper cash in big thanks to Tyler Allgeier. Here’s how all my picks played out in week eight:

QB: Davis Mills, 10 points

QB: Andy Dalton, 17 points

RB: Tyler Allgeier, 16 points

RB: JaMycal Hasty, 3 points

WR: Parris Campbell, 8 points

WR: Marquise Goodwin, 5 points

Now that I’m seeing the board, I’m going to keep this ball rolling and give out my second week in a row of great fantasy sleepers. If you want to ride along with me, you can be sure to take prop bets on any of my sleepers through these New Jersey Online Casinos.


Taylor Heinicke (Owned in 10% of leagues)

Heinicke now has at least two touchdowns in each of his first two starts this season for the Commanders and has scored 15 and 23 fantasy points each week. The Commanders are taking on the Vikings at home in Week 9 which may spell trouble for Commanders fans, but they’ll at least have this to bank on: the Vikings have given up the 9th most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season and have allowed 275.6 passing yards per game, which is 29th in the NFL.

Andy Dalton (Owned in 14% of leagues)

I’m riding with the Red Rocket AGAIN here in week nine–I mean, how could I not? Dalton has thrown for six touchdowns combined across his last two games and will go up against a weak Ravens defense in week nine, who have given up the eight most fantasy points to quarterbacks so far this season. Dalton’s last two weeks have resulted in 30 and 17 fantasy points.

Running backs:

Caleb Huntley (Owned in 16% of leagues)

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure who Caleb Huntly was until about five minutes before writing this story. However, he’s earned double-digit carries in three of his last five games and is taking on the 2nd-worst rush defense in the NFL in week nine, the LA Chargers. Sleeper running backs are so hard to find, so Huntley is a great pickup if you are dealing with injuries.

Jeff Wilson Jr (Owned in 48% of leagues)

Wilson was one of many trade deadline moves made throughout the NFL, and I expect him to start off the next chapter of his career with a bang. He’ll now be the Dolphins' second in command, and the Dolphins are taking on the Bears (who have given up the fourth most fantasy points to running backs this season).

Wide Receivers:

Mecole Hardman (Owned in 41% of leagues)

Hardman has been taking on a new role here with the Chiefs in the past weeks, acting more as a Deebo Samuel-type player than the normal wide receiver. He has scored four touchdowns (two rushing, two receiving) over the last four games, and has been a big part of the Chiefs' offense as the season unfolds. The Chiefs are taking on the Titans in week nine, who have given up the fourth most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers all season.

K.J. Osborn (Owned in 5% of leagues)

Osborn has seen five targets in each of his last three games. While those targets have amounted to much, you can’t score fantasy points without targets–so, we’ve got some potential energy brewing here with Osborn. The Vikings are taking on the Commanders here in week nine, who have given up the ninth most fantasy points to wide receivers all season.
