Slate Summary

  • Before we dive into the 2 game slate, news broke that Amari Cooper will try to play today and is optimistic which would change the entire slate. It will be decided during pre-game warmups.
  • As for the NO vs CAR game, my favorite play on both sites is Miles Sanders for 6.4k and 5.7k. In week 1, Sanders had 18 carries vs Hubbards 9. I don’t see anything for it to change here in week 2 as Hubbard should be the 3rd down back.
  • Sticking with value, on FanDuel for NO, taking Michael Thomas for 5.8k and Olave for 7.2k on DraftKings. Both looked great with their new QB and should see plenty of targets once again.
  • As mentioned above, we are unsure if Amari Cooper will suit up but as of now, Chubb and Elijah Moore are locks on DK. Once we get news, core plays will be updated accordingly so make sure to check back in the optimizer!

These are the top NFL DFS picks for your FanDuel and DraftKings lineups for September 18, 2023.
