2018 Fantasy Football Week 9 Start-Sit

on

Just one week after complaining about kickers, I pick Dan Bailey back up and he gets me a whopping 2 fantasy points, hashtag ban kickers.

With the NFL trade deadline passing, owners should start to consider their league’s actual trade deadline.

Comfortable teams should start shoring up your roster and consider making some power moves to improve a starting position.


Playoff contenders should start making moves that can help you win one week at a time or make that final push into the playoffs.

These types of decisions are equally as important when considering start and sit decisions. At this point each start and sit decision can get you in or out of the fantasy playoffs.

With that being said, checkout this article for all your start and sit questions.

Starts

Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams vs New Orleans Saints

Goff shined against the Packers with 295 yards and three touchdowns. He now has multiple touchdown throws in all but two games. In a match-up against that allows the third most Fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, Goff is a safe start.

Nick Chubb, RB, Cleveland Browns vs Kansas City Chiefs

Since taking over as the starter, Chubb has run the ball 18 times in back to back games. While his efficiency has been lacking, he is still a workhorse back in the NFL. Owners should expect Chubb to rebound after a disappointing Week 8 performance and put up solid numbers against a Chiefs defense that allows the second most Fantasy points to opposing running backs.

DJ Moore, WR, Carolina Panthers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Moore looked to be featured in Week 8 as he had 90 receiving yards and 39 rushing yards. Moore is quickly becoming more involved in the Panthers attack, and a match-up against a team that allows the third most Fantasy points to opposing wide receivers keeps Moore in flex consideration for this week.

Jimmy Graham, TE, Green Bay Packers vs New England Patriots

Only one catch for 21 yards for Graham in Week 8. He was tackled inches before the end zone, thus having a touchdown called back. Owners should expect a bounce back game from him this week as the Patriots allow over 10 Fantasy points to opposing tight ends.

Sits

Philip Rivers, QB, Los Angeles Chargers vs Seattle Seahawks

Rivers has been solid for Fantasy this year with only two games of less than 20 Fantasy points. He might have another sub-20-point game this week against the Seahawks, who allow the fewest Fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. In a game script that could involve Seattle running the ball to limit Rivers’ number of possessions, Rivers can be safely sat.

Alex Collins, RB, Baltimore Ravens vs Pittsburgh Steelers

Collins now has only two games with more than 12 carries on the season. He has also failed to rush for more than 59 yards in all but one game. A touchdown saved his Week 8 Fantasy production, but reduced volume and lack of rushing yards makes Collins a sit candidate for a Week 9 showdown against the Steelers who are strong against the run.

Corey Davis, WR, Tennessee Titans vs Dallas Cowboys

Besides his Week 4 blow up game, Davis has been a bust for Fantasy this year. Now he goes up against a Dallas defense that allows the second fewest Fantasy points to opposing Wide Receivers. Keep Davis on your bench until the Titans offense can get their passing game going.

Vance McDonald, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers vs Baltimore Ravens

McDonald has found pay-dirt just once this season, on that amazing play against the Buccaneers in Week 3. This severely limits his Fantasy production and in a game against a tough Ravens defense, owners can safely look elsewhere at the tight end position this week.
