Week 9 fantasy football position rankings, DFS picks, start/sit advice, injury news, and more!

The NFL is back for Week 9, and it’s time to sort out your fantasy football rosters. We have a look at everything you need to know to get your lineups ready for fantasy football.

The NFL heads into Week 9 opening with a Covid-19 impacted Thursday Night Football and closing with the Jets and Patriots on Monday Night Football. There are a host of lineup decisions to make in between.

Plenty will be relevant to figuring out our fantasy football lineups. Entering the season, we offered up a wide array of content to get you ready for your fantasy drafts. Now that the season is underway, we’ll be bringing you a little bit of everything week in and week out. We start with waiver wire content, and from there move on to position rankings, start/sit advice, and injury updates.

Each week, we’ll have a fairly regular schedule of fantasy content. Monday and Tuesday will bring waiver wire advice so you can find those diamonds in the rough to add critical roster depth. Tuesday and Wednesday will bring position rankings for standard and PPR leagues. Thursday will bring Thursday Night Football roster advice. Friday will bring start/sit advice across each position. And then Sunday will bring individual player start/sit advice and injury updates to make those last-minute lineup decisions. Finally, we’ll have DFS advice throughout the week to prep you for Thursday, Sunday, and Monday.
