JAX@PHI: Since it's anticipated to be very windy in the city of Brotherly Love, this game's total has dropped by at least 3 points since it opened. Rain is also in the forecast. This game's total has now dropped 6 points due to weather. Betting markets are confirming the downside risk.
BUF@BAL: 20+ mph winds are typically bad news for aerial assaults. Monitor the forecast in Baltimore going into Sunday. Now expecting 30+ mph winds, and the total has dropped 3+ points at sportsbooks. Betting markets are confirming the downside risk.


Mac Jones: out on Sunday night, Green Bay’s defense gets to tee off against Brian Hoyer.
D’Andre Swift & Amon-Ra St. Brown: out for DET, means Jamaal Williams starts at RB, and Chark/Raymond (both questionable) start at WR if active. Chark is OUT. 
Hunter Renfrow: Will be OUT again for LV, locking in Adams & Hollins as the main WRs once again.

Cardinals WRs: AJ Green is out, Marquise Brown, Greg Dortch & Rondale Moore are each questionable. Moore returning may make Dortch unplayable.
Christian McCaffrey: may not be able to go after missing practices, monitor.
David Montgomery: out after not practicing, Khalil Herbert will start at RB.

NFL DFS Picks - Best Plays By Position

Below are our preferred plays for different contest types and roster spots. Plays are listed in order of preference. 

Low-Risk: Contests where roughly half the field doubles their entry fee (e.g. H2Hs, Double Ups, etc.)
Small-Field High-Risk: Contests with exponential payouts and/or where a smaller portion of the field gets paid with less than 500 entrants (e.g. Multipliers, Leagues, smaller GPPs)
Large-Field High-Risk: Contests with exponential payouts and/or where a smaller portion of the field gets paid with more than 500 entrants (e.g. Multipliers, Leagues, smaller GPPs)



Low-Risk: BUF Josh Allen, PHI Jalen Hurts, BAL Lamar Jackson, ATL Marcus Mariota

High-Risk: DEN Russell Wilson, LAC Justin Herbert, ARI Kyler Murray, JAX Trevor Lawrence, LV Derek Carr, SEA Geno Smith, DET Jared Goff, CLE Jacoby Brissett

In low-risk contests, we're always going to favor dual threat QBs, particularly when they are in high total games (Allen/Jackson) or when they're large favorites (Hurts). Mid-range price QBs like Mariota, Geno Smith and Derek Carr will also be popular this week.

Our favorite game stacks this week are BUF/BAL and LV/DEN, so each of those QBs are our favorite high-risk options at the position as a result. Every other QB in our high-risk pool has the upside to succeed, but there's warts in the profile (DET's Goff has a great matchup, but no Amon-Ra this week, for example).
