Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 9 Predictions

If fantasy football players looked ahead on their schedule, Week 9 is the one they've been dreading. There are six teams on a bye, and while that's the same amount as last week, the fantasy impact is likely going to much more significant this time around. The New England Patriots, Arizona Cardinals, Cincinnati Bengals, Chicago Bears, Houston Texans and Washington Redskins are all off this week, which means--in terms of points per game in ESPN standard leagues--the absence of fantasy football's top QB (Tom Brady), top RB (David Johnson), top TE (Rob Gronkowski) and No. 3 WR (A.J. Green). That's just the tip of the iceberg, too, as owners will be without the likes of Andy Dalton, Kirk Cousins, LeGarrette Blount, Lamar Miller, Larry Fitzgerald, DeAndre Hopkins, Julian Edelman, Alshon Jeffery, Jordan Reed, Tyler Eifert and other important pieces. Filling out lineups could get difficult in Week 9, but we're here to help.

I I agree. Williams should bounce back. Also, maybe if these coaches had their team members for their fantasy football team that would be more in tune with the need to get the ball to the guys who produce. Right now it’s been so frustrating having Antonio Brown as a player. His number should be 32 points every week. How does Mike Tomlin not know this? Get the man the ball!!!! Just throw it up to him…..Let him run by the db’s…..anything. You have to get the ball in his hands and continue to do it. Stars are stars for a reason and if I’m Landry Jones, I’m throwing it to Brown. Every single time. lol


Or West…whatever…..stupid details. Oh yeah, one more think Slick. There’s a clean up on aisle 9 I’m gonna need you to take care of!
