Wide Receiver Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 9

Michael Pittman Jr., Indianapolis Colts

Michael Pittman Jr. is flirting with WR1 status for Week 9

Fantasy managers have to deal with four teams on a bye in Week 9 as well as injuries to plenty of players. While the wide receivers haven't been hit as hard as running backs, they still are worth monitoring. Davante Adams missed Week 8 because he was on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, but he is ranked for Week 9. He's not grabbing the No. 1 spot as usual, but assuming he plays, he will be a top-10 fantasy option.

Another player that is nearing the top 10 is Michael Pittman Jr. In Week 8, he had 15 targets. He caught 10 of them for 86 yards and two touchdowns. In Week 7, he had 104 yards and a touchdown. With T.Y. Hilton injured (he's already been ruled out for Week 9), Pittman is a great fantasy option. Carson Wentz is looking for him and Pittman is delivering, which is a great combination for fantasy managers.
