Fantasy Football: How To Pick From 9th Overall Pick In 0.5 PPR Leagues With A Balanced Structure

The ninth overall pick isn’t the most ideal place to draft in the 2022 Fantasy Football leagues, but that doesn’t mean you can’t build a ninth hole winner. I drafted from all 12 spots this draft season in our almost daily drills at CBSSports.com/Fantasy and enjoyed some of my most balanced builds since the ninth overall pick. This draft was no different for me: I took a balanced approach and ultimately landed several players I believe in for the 2022 season.

Below, we’ll break down my plan to pick starting with the 9th overall pick in 2022.

Pick-by-pick strategy 0.5-PPR: 1 | two | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | eleven | 12

As a point of reference, all touchdowns in this league are worth six points, and we award one point for every 10 rushing and receiving yards and one point for every 25 passing yards. We also award 0.5 points for each reception. We have a starting lineup of QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE and FLEX (RB/WR/TE).

Here’s my No. 9 team overall:

1.9 Dalvin Cook, RB, Vikings
2.4 Stefon Diggs, WR, Bills
3.9: Keenan Allen, WR, Chargers
4.4 Brandin Cooks, WR, Texans
5.9 George Kittle, TE, 49ers
6.4 Kyler Murray, QB, Cardinals
7.9 Kareem Hunt, RHP, Browns
8.4 Kadarius Toney, WR, Giants
9.9 Jahan Dotson, WR, commanders
10.4 Melvin Gordon, RHP, Broncos
11.9 James Cook, RB, Bills
12.4 Christian Watson, WR, Packers
13.9 Sterling Shepard, WR, Giants
14.4 Jakobi Meyers, WR, Patriots
15.9 Ameer Abdullah, RB, Raiders

Diggs didn’t put together the DFS-friendly blast weeks last year and everyone seems to be using that against him, but there may not be a bigger block for 150 targets, from an elite quarterback, on an offense. who always wants to throw, with an already established relationship with the quarterback outside the top three. Diggs is an easy click for me in Round 2. He should be a Round 1 pick in all drafts.

Choice I might regret

I’m a big believer in getting a weekly advantage over your opponents, specifically in bigger leagues, at tight end. George Kittle gives me a chance to do that, and you can say that about maybe five other players at the position. Of course, the fact that he plays essentially a right tackle, the best blocking tight end in the NFL, doesn’t help keep him healthy and we’ve seen it over the years. Also, a new quarterback who will settle in and run could mean less volume. It is the ultimate boom or bust play in the position.

Look, I’m not going to go out on a limb saying my #1 pick is my make or break decision, but Cook is a year older now, and while everyone else in the fantasy world is praising the new offensive system and how it will affect ALL Vikings , I am concerned about how it will affect Cook. The old Klint Kubiak system fit perfectly with his racing style. He knew it well, he processed his blocks better than anyone in the NFL not named Nick Chubb and he thrived. On the other hand, an expanded role in the passing game could propel him into uncharted territory in points per game.
