2020 Fantasy Football Week 9 IDP Rankings


Welcome back for a look at my 2020 Fantasy Football Week 9 IDP Rankings! We are officially at the half way point of the NFL Season, can you believe it? Hopefully you’re rocking out at the top of your league’s standings, but if not we got your back here at FantasySixPack! Be sure to check out our Week 9 Offensive Rankings(LINK) as well!

It wouldn’t be a week in Fantasy Football without injuries! Thankfully I didn’t have to get my heart broken this weekend losing another one of my favorite IDP players. However, there are still plenty of injuries to dive into.

As an added bonus this week we have trades to dive into as well. A few moves that shake up some situations around the league.

Be sure to follow up on these injuries in my IDP Injury Round-Up that drops Saturday! I put a ton of work into compiling notable players’ practice reports from the entire week and laying out what we should expect from each player! Check out my IDP Injury Round-Up from Week 8 for reference! Thank you!

Early Injury Breakdown:

Should Jordan Hicks miss time it could open up the door for rookie Isaiah Simmons to have a full time role in his absence. After seeing no more than 21 snaps in a game, it would be nice to see what their first draft pick from this past draft class can do.

Myles Garrett has been on a tear to start the year. It’d be a huge loss not only to the Browns defense, but Fantasy managers as well. This was definitely a scare, but it seems he avoided major injury. He’ll have the Bye Week to recover.

I’m not concerned with Myles Jack as Head Coach Doug Marrone has said he’s on track to play this week. However, I’d be more concerned of re-injury. Considering he’s been fighting this ankle injury, it wouldn’t surprise me to see this issue continue.

Joey Bosa has had a disappointing season to say the least. While his lack of production is evident, injuries have defined his season. Players rarely clear the concussion protocol in one week’s time, so I’d consider him a long shot for this coming week.

Ja’Whaun Bentley with a groin injury is likely to miss time, groin injuries have been a near guarantee for missed time this season.

Cameron Heyward is borderline droppable. The injury almost bolsters the reasoning should he miss time.

Jamal Adams please come back! I do think he has a realistic shot to return this week, which is great news.


Note: These aren’t necessarily NFL Trade Deadline moves, but they are recent moves that need to be discussed as their impact may be far reaching.

Trade Impact:

It’ll be interesting to see the situation play out in New Orleans seeing as the Saints already have a solid starting LB in Demario Davis. It makes me believe that Kwon will settle into a complimentary role. One that you likely won’t be thrilled to have on your Fantasy team. He’s a hold for now but I’m tempering my expectations. As I mentioned in my Week 9 Waver Wire article, 49ers LB Dre Greenlaw gains some appeal.

Another mention in my Week 9 Waiver Wire article, Carlos Dunlap finds himself in greener pastures on a playoff bound team in need of a strong pass rusher. Big fan of this move for both sides.

What interests me more is where Desmond King slots in on this defense. I’d lean that he might end up in more of a slot corner role, seeing as Kenny Vaccaro and Kevin Byard assume the two starting safety positions. King has a ton of talent and I’m excited to see how he’s deployed in a Matt Vrabel run defense.

My initial thought is that Griffin will slot in as a strictly rotational pass rusher. There’s a chance he ends up being more, but I’m guessing his Fantasy value dips quite a bit in Detroit.

The rich get richer and Baltimore bolsters their pass rush by adding Yannick Ngakoue. With an already stout front Ngakoue brings more to their pass rush and is bound to improve. This also opens up opportunity for D.J. Wonnum back in Minnesota as mentioned in my Week 9 IDP Waiver Wire article.

Avery Williamson goes from worst to first over night as he joins the Pittsburgh Steelers. I don’t think he’ll start right away, however I do believe he takes the starting role fully from Robert Spillane sooner rather than later.

COVID Impact:

Coming in like a wrecking ball this week, COVID seems to have attacked the Baltimore Ravens defense. DB Marlon Humphrey has tested positive, thus leading to isolation and in-depth follow up testing to several players including LB Matt Judon as well as LB Patrick Queen. Humphrey is a guarantee to miss Week 9. However, should Judon and Queen miss time it would be a large blow to Fantasy teams as well as the Ravens defense.
