In Week 8, fantasy owners may have been relieved as the guys that were supposed to do well, for the most part, did do well. DeAndre Hopkins, Julio Jones, Michael Thomas, and Mike Evans all ended up in the top 10 of wide receivers for the week. While some other wideouts found success, it's hard to imagine Darius Slayton scoring two touchdowns (on two receptions) again next week. Four teams are on a bye including two of the four mentioned above. Fantasy owners are going to have to look to the waiver wire to see if some other options are available.
Tyrell Williams continued his touchdown streak in Week 9. He's scored a touchdown in each game he's played this season (five and counting). While the streak is going to end at some point, the Raiders do face the Detroit Lions in Week 9. That game has the potential to be a high-scoring affair and Williams may find his way into the end zone again. He's ranked No. 15, which puts him in the WR2 mix for the week.
Teams on bye: Atlanta, Cincinnati, Los Angeles Rams, New Orleans
