Fantasy Overview - Week 9

Get yourself caught up on what's going on in the league as we enter Week 9 of the NFL season. Here's my take on the fantasy landscape around the league and how you can benefit. 

Week 8 is complete and the season is halfway over for the teams who have yet to have their bye. In most fantasy leagues there are only four or five more weeks left before the playoffs begin. Is your team in position for a playoff run? Do you need a few more wins to secure a berth? This week I take a look at some streaming options not only for Week 9 but also for the rest of the season. It's always good to look ahead a few weeks for waiver claims or in some cases, four or five games ahead.


Over the last four weeks, Minnesota, Houston, and Cincinnati have averaged at least three passing touchdowns allowed per game. To narrow down the ultimate opponent exploit, Houston is also allowing over 300 yards passing per game. Minnesota and Cincinnati are up there as well with 293 and 270 yards per game respectively. Houston is a common theme of teams to exploit, across multiple positions. The bottom line, start your players against Houston.

Exploit these opponents: Minnesota, Houston, and Cincinnati

Houston: at JAC, at CLE, NE, at DET

Who stands to benefit: Gardner Minshew Jake Luton Week 9, Baker Mayfield Week 10, Cam Newton Week 11, and Matthew Stafford Week 12.
