2019 Fantasy Football Week 9 Rankings


The trade deadline was not as crazy as we all thought it was going to be. There were a lot of rumors, but the big trades that mattered, especially for Fantasy Football, all occurred before Week 8. This means, besides the bye week craziness, we will not have to do any extra adjustments than we normally would for the 2019 Fantasy Football Week 9 Rankings.

Speaking of bye weeks we have four teams on bye. Not a crazy amount of teams, but we will be without premier players such as Michael Thomas, Drew Brees, Cooper Kupp, Julio Jones and more. When you mix in having to miss that many players due to bye and the injuries we have, it sure will be a test for some teams to win this week. To help make sure you read Jonathan Chan’s Week 9 Waiver recommendations.

Bye Week Teams: Falcons, Bengals, Saints, Rams
