Winning a DFS tournament while competing in a field of 100,000 entrants is an outrageous task. The best way to tilt the odds in your favor is to play into the chaos of the NFL week. Profit disproportionately when things don’t go as planned.

Here are three ways to build that kind of leverage into your lineups for Week 9.

Russell Wilson won’t struggle versus the Los Angeles Rams

The Los Angeles Rams have created an impressive and complete defense this year. They have PFF’s No. 5-ranked pass rush and coverage unit. Wilson simply doesn’t care about good defenses this year.

Passing Yards Passing TD DK Points
vs. Top-Half PRSH 346.8 3.3 31.3
vs. Top-Half COV 324.3 3.3 32.8

Wilson is performing well against good defenses because he either beats them by playing at an MVP caliber or he reaches a large fantasy performance on volume. He has just one game below an 87.0 overall grade and under 35 pass attempts this season.
