2019 Fantasy Football: Week 9 PPR Rankings

Advertisement

Frank Ammirante  | October 30th, 2019 

We have passed the half-way point of the season – it’s time to buck up and finish your season strong! Last week featured a couple of smash performances by Tevin Coleman and Aaron Jones. We also saw Mike Evans erupt against the Titans. This week features a bounce-back spot for a star running back who has struggled this season. On to Week 9!

20Ryan Tannehillat Panthers
21Kyler Murrayvs. 49ers
22Mason Rudolphvs. Colts
23Baker Mayfieldat Broncos
24Matt Moorevs. Vikings

Wilson reclaims the QB1 throne against a pass-funnel Bucs defense that is allowing 285.9 passing yards per game. This game has shootout potential with a 51.5 point total. The dark horse for QB1 is Jameis Winston, who will likely have to play catch-up in a high-scoring game against the Seahawks. Seattle’s defense is allowing 273.2 passing yards per game, so Jameis will have opportunities for big plays in this game.

McCaffrey showed how matchup-proof he really is, racking up 155 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown against a dominant 49ers defense last week. He takes on the Titans this week, a team that is stout against the run, but CMC’s dominance keeps him in the top spot. The dark horse for RB1 is Jacobs, who faces a Lions defense that is allowing 130.7 yards per game on the ground. Jacobs gets enough volume to put up huge numbers in this game.

48Mohamed Sanuat Ravens

Hopkins’ target share puts him in the WR1 slot, as he has received 37 targets in his last 3 games. He takes on a Jaguars defense that no longer has Jalen Ramsey to match up with him. Hopkins should get loose in the secondary in this game. The dark horse for WR1 is Robinson, who has quietly had a fantastic season. He has been targeted 32 times in the last 3 games. Robinson faces an Eagles defense that is allowing 256.1 yards per game through the air.

Kittle remains at TE1 spot, ready for a match-up that we have exploited all year: TEs vs. the Cardinals. The dark horse for TE1 is once again Hockenson, as he remains a weekly sleeper due to his athletic ability and upside for multiple touchdowns. The rookie is heavily targeted in the red zone, so he’s a good player to bet on in a likely shootout.

D/STs
RankTeamOpponent
   
1New England Patriotsat Ravens
2San Francisco 49ersat Cardinals
3Cleveland Brownsat Broncos
4Buffalo Billsvs. Redskins
5Philadelphia Eaglesvs. Bears
6Denver Broncosvs. Browns
7Carolina Panthersvs. Titans
8New York Jetsat Dolphins
9Seattle Seahawksvs. Buccaneers
10Minnesota Vikingsat Chiefs
11Dallas Cowboysat Giants
12Pittsburgh Steelersvs. Colts

I might as well write the Patriots as D/ST1 with a sharpie because their historic dominance makes them the best bet on a weekly basis. The dark horse for D/ST1 is the Browns, who face a sixth-round rookie QB in Brandon Allen and the Broncos. Expect a bunch of sacks and turnovers for this Browns defense.
