It’s hard to believe we have already reached the midway point of the 2022 NFL season, but here we are. Sunday’s main slate on FanDuel features eight morning games and two afternoon games. The morning slate is highlighted with a big matchup in the AFC East between the Bills and Jets, while the afternoon features two struggling teams who will look to get back on track when the Rams visit the Buccaneers. Below are some players you should be buying for Week 9, along with a value play and a player to fade.

Aaron Jones ($7,800): When Jones faces this Lions defense, he eats. In the last three games that Jones has faced this defense he is averaging over 30 FPPG, with two of those performances going over 38 fantasy points. Jones will be facing the same old Lions defense on Sunday, a defense that gives up 154.9 YPG on the ground while allowing 13 rushing touchdowns in just seven games, second worst in the league only ahead of the Bears. Even though Green Bay has struggled this year they are favored by 3.5 in this game so they should lean on Jones not only in the running game, but in the passing game as well.
Justin Fields ($7,400): There has been a lot of buzz and excitement in the city of Chicago over the last few weeks with the play of Justin Fields, who seems to be making big strides in the right direction to be the Bears franchise quarterback. Fields has been great over the last four weeks, scoring at least 17 points in all four of those games, including 24+ in his last two. Fields has been fantastic on the ground over this stretch, averaging over 69 yards in those four contests. The Dolphins have been shaky against elite running quarterbacks, giving up 119 yards and a touchdown on the ground to Lamar Jackson in Week 2. The Dolphins also rank 26th defending the pass, giving up 262.1 YPG. This is a great spot for Fields to have another big day on the ground and through the air.
Joshua Palmer ($6,200): With Mike Williams and Keenan Allen both sidelined with injuries this weekend it should be the Joshua Palmer show in Atlanta. Palmer has not had a great year to this point even with Keenan Allen missing all but two games, but that should change with Williams out as well. Palmer will face the worst passing defense in the league on Sunday, who will also be without the best player in their secondary, AJ Terrell. This a great spot for Palmer on Sunday, especially at this price. The Falcons give up a league worst 306.9 YPG through the air and are tied for second to last in receiving touchdowns allowed at 14. Palmer will be looked at early and often in this one and should have the production to back up the volume.
Rondale Moore ($5,900): While the Cardinals have not had the season they had hoped for to this point, Rondale Moore has started to break out in this Kliff Kingsbury offense. Moore has seen 8+ targets in three of his last four games, including a 19.9 point effort in Week 8 against the Vikings. The Cardinals are trying to find more ways to get Moore involved in the offense and that should continue on Sunday. Moore is a great value this week coming in at under 6k against a Seahawks passing defense that ranks in the bottom third of the league.
D’Andre Swift ($7,500): Swift is listed as questionable this week, so even if he does play he will not be 100%. Swift has been efficient when he has gotten the ball this year, but has had just one game with 11+ carries in four games. The Lions also look to Jamaal Williams when they get in close, as Williams has eight touchdown’s this year compared to Swift’s one. Even in a good matchup I would fade Swift this Sunday with his health situation and current price.
