Another week and yet again, Stephen Gostkowski is atop the fantasy kicker rankings. If we've learned nothing this season, we've learned that you cannot predict a kicker's performance. In Week 9, 11 kickers had more fantasy points than Gostkowski.
Aside from the Dion Lewis injury there were no earth-shattering fantasy performances in Week 9 from waiver wire players. There are still some targets you can pursue as flyers, but this week it looks as if we are talking bench stash players, or desperation moves.
While Week 9 wasn't quite as injury filled as Week 8, it still was tough for fantasy owners. Ben Roethlisberger went down (again), although he did put in almost a full game for his owners before leaving.
What an interesting week we just witnessed in the NFL and fantasy! Who had the Falcons losing to the 49ers and who had Devonta Freeman only getting 12 yards on 12 carries? Thank goodness he caught a touchdown!
While not many quarterbacks are on the Week 9 fantasy injury report, there are plenty of tight ends (below), as well running backs and wide receivers. Be sure to check the actives when they are released about 90 minutes before game time to ensure your guys are playing.
With six teams on bye, the thought would be the fantasy injury report for running backs would be shorter for Week 9, right? However, that is not the case, as Week 8 was brutal for injuries, leaving fantasy owners with plenty of names to pay attention to.
After the bloodbath that was Week 8, we are treated with six teams on bye for Week 9 of the fantasy season. It's a struggle to fill your roster with healthy players, forget about healthy players with good matchups.
