Week 9 fantasy rankings

We are halfway through the season, and hopefully most of your fantasy teams are still in the running for playoff contention. If you’re 2-6, or 2-5 - fear not! Many casual fantasy players lose interest around this time of year; there’s still hope for your team. Everyone loves a redemption, come back, story.

The highest over/under on this slate is Sunday Night Football as the Derrick Henryless Tennessee Titans travel to Los Angeles to battle the Rams. It’s a 52.5 point O/U on DraftKings Sportsbook. The only other game over 50 points is the Vikings at Ravens.

The Packers and Chiefs gameline fell to 48 points now that Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers will miss the battle of Statefarm. Unfortunate, yes! However, now we finally get to see Jordan Love in live regular season action that isn’t garbage time. Love also receives Davante Adams back from the COVID-19 List.

Sunday morning will give us more context on who exactly is playing. Many players are still out with injuries, but some may return; Christian McCaffrey is not ranked but there’s a shot he could play. George Kittle will be available for the 49ers as they host the 7-1 Arizona Cardinals. Other names to monitor on Sunday include AJ Brown, James Robinson, Elijah Mitchell, Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins, Deebo Samuel, Sam Darnold, and even RB Jeff Wilson Jr. who hasn’t played a snap has a chance to face the Cardinals on Sunday. Here’s the rankings for week eight.
