Fantasy Football Watch: Week 9

Start em and sit em as November rolls on

Start Them

Josh Allen (QB), Buffalo Bills

Allen has shown some signs of regression in recent weeks, but he is still a great starter in fantasy. Allen will be facing the non-existent Seattle secondary. Seattle has had a tendency of letting quarterbacks light them up, as there is only one team who is worse against the quarterback than Seattle. Allen may be able to return to MVP form today.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire (RB), Kansas City Chiefs

Clyde hasn’t had the type of year many fantasy owners had hoped, yet he’s still a top ten fantasy running back. The Chiefs will take on the Carolina Panthers, who are 31st against running backs in fantasy. Clyde should see plenty of carries and be able to rack up points. Le’Veon Bell hasn’t hurt Clyde’s production yet, so keep him in your lineups.

James Robinson (RB), Jacksonville Jaguars

Robinson has had a shockingly good season thus far. He’s one of the top fantasy players that people haven’t given enough attention to. Robinson matches up against a Houston team that’s in shambles. Houston has been giving up points to running backs far too easily, and Robinson may see an increased workload with a change at quarterback.

T.J. Hockenson (TE), Detroit Lions

Matthew Stafford is set to play, which is a good sign for Hockenson. Hockenson has had a strong season so far, and Minnesota has allowed tight ends such as Hayden Hurst to get well over double digit fantasy points against them.

Sit Them

Mike Evans (WR), Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Evans is really, really good. The offense in Tampa Bay is just starting to get crowded. In weeks that Evans and Chris Godwin play together, Evans has been very quiet. Throw Antonio Brown into the mix, as well as a Rob Gronkowski, this could be a tough week for Evans.

Wayne Gallman (RB), New York Giants

If you think starting Gallman is a good idea today, stop. Fantasy owners shouldn’t have much trust in Giants players in general at this point, let alone against a stingy Washington run defense. Washington is a top five toughest team for running backs to play against in fantasy, and the Giants already struggle offensively as it is. Gallman shouldn’t be starting for anybody this week.

Corey Davis (WR), Tennessee Titans

Davis has come on strong the last few weeks, and he is still a viable option in deeper leagues. Facing the Bears has been a major issue for receivers and quarterbacks alike. The Bears have been able to hold receivers to just two scores this year. Davis is still a guy to start going forward, this week’s matchup just presents a very tough challenge.

The Dallas Cowboys

Anyone involved in the Dallas passing game might be in trouble. The quarterback situation in Dallas has gotten even worse after Ben DiNucci’s awful debut. The Steelers defense is tremendous, and the Cowboys offense seems like no match for the revived Steel Curtain. Treat this week as a bye week for the Cowboys.
