Week nine of fantasy football is another six team bye week but most of the wide receivers on bye weeks should not be primary fantasy football receivers. Some of the better wide receivers that will be off the board this week will be Brandon Lloyd, Mike Sims Walker, Michael Crabtree, Kenny Britt and Santana Moss.
The Randy Moss possible release by the Minnesota Vikings has shocked everyone and it could be the end of the once talented wide receivers career. Moss was chosen in the second round in most fantasy football leagues by fantasy football owners convinced he would play well in a contract year.
Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Start in Week Nine of Fantasy Football
Steve Smith: Carolina Panthers
Matt Moore and Steve Smith have begun to get reacquainted and they both know the New Orleans Saints will be worn down after a major battle with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Smith should be healthier for this game and he looked almost back to himself in the Carolina Panthers against the St Louis Rams. Start Steve Smith in all fantasy football leagues for week nine of fantasy football.
Roddy White: Atlanta Falcons
Matt Ryan and Roddy White return to work after a bye week and they shouldn’t miss a beat. White and Ryan have become a potent combination and with White going against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers he should have a big day. This may be disputed by some but White knows his way around the Tampa Bay secondary. Start Roddy White in all fantasy football leagues in week nine of fantasy football.
Hakeem Nicks: New York Giants
Antother big time receiver coming off of a bye week is Hakeem Nicks. Nicks and his New York Giants quarterback, Eli Manning are the a solid combo. Manning has not had a number one target since Plaxico Burris shot himself and the New York Giants in the foot a few years ago. Nicks is the best route runner and best deep ball target on the team and he will get his catches. Start Hakeem Nicks in all fantasy football in week nine of fantasy football.
Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Sit in Week Nine of Fantasy Football
Andre Johnson: Houston Texans
Andre Johnson has not lived up to past seasons but he of course is a start in most fantasy football leagues every week. This week Johnson comes up against the best pass defense in the NFL, the San Diego Chargers. Johnson is also coming off a big AFC South conference game against the Indianapolis Colts. This is a let down spot for the Houston Texans and Johnson. Sit Andre Johnson in most fantasy football leagues unless the next best option is ranked 13th or lower in fantasy football rankings.
Larry Fitzgerald: Arizona Cardinals
It does look like Larry Fitzgerald may be breaking out after scoring two touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Then again the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not a team considered to be a stifling defense. Now the Arizona Cardinals travel to play the hard hitting defense of the Minnesota Vikings. The secondary of the Minnesota Vikings is beatable but Derek Anderson will not have much time to find an open Larry Fitzgerald. Sit Larry Fitzgerald in most fantasy football leagues unless the next best option is ranked 15th or lower in fantasy football wide receiver rankings.
Dez Bryant: Dallas Cowboys
Jon Kitna is the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys until the end of the season and this is not a good thing for the young Dez Bryant. Kitna will use the tight ends and the more experienced receivers over Dez Bryant and this may be a good time to see if a Dallas Cowboys fan can be suckered into taking him in a small trade. Sit Dez Bryant in most fantasy football leagues unless the next best option ranks 16th or lower in fantasy football wide receiver rankings.
Randy Moss: Minnesota Vikings??
Don’t cut Randy Moss just in case but be prepared to cut him from a fantasy football team if he has not hooked on with a team in two weeks.
