Fantasy Football Week 9 Wrap: Despite vintage game-winning drive, Brady belongs on fantasy benches


Los Angeles Rams @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Bucks won an ugly (for both fantasy and reality) game that served as a reminder of how quickly things change in the NFL. The league cleared its schedule for this Rams/Buccaneers game (the only afternoon start time this week), and this resulted in the teams teaming up for the most three strikeouts in the first half of any game this season. It also became the first game Tom Bradya career in which he made over 50 passes without a TD strike before finding Cade Otton for the winning score at the end of the game.

Brady took advantage of Rams Prevent’s protection, covering 60 yards in just 35 seconds on the last pass. But he still ended up with a disgusting 4.8 YPA despite Mike Evans as well as Chris Godwin both fit and facing the Los Angeles defense, who entered last in the NFL in QB, rushing and hitting. Brady threw multiple touchdowns in just one of nine games this season. At the moment, GOAT is firmly on the fantasy bench.

However, in Brady’s defense: Scotty Miller the team had a poor slump in the end zone, which was at least sixth of the game. The Otton TD capture was Tampa Bay’s first tight end this season as they appear to be out. somebody … Beginner Rachel White as expected, has seen more action in the Tampa Bay backfield and will continue to do so, which makes things more difficult for the fantasy. The Bucks are bottom of the league in EPA/rush this season and get a tough defense from the Seahawks in Germany before bidding farewell over the next two weeks.

The situation with the RB Rams is also not easy in fantasy leagues. Cam Akers now back in business on offense that managed -2 ​​yards in Sunday’s fourth quarter. The tissue swelling in his ankle and the healthier secondary bucks couldn’t slow him down. cooper coupwho scored in the longest game allowed by Tampa Bay all season. Meanwhile, Van Jefferson suffered an ugly fall and has failed to hit five targets in two games since returning.

Outside of Kupp, the Rams’ pass catchers covered 38 yards on 18 passes (2.1 YPT). Matthew Stafford this season has already come under pressure more times than in all of last year. The Rams are becoming Fewest Yards Per Game in the NFL. They have a worse point difference than the Commanders, although they play two games more at home than away. They just lost to this Tampa Bay team.

I’m starting to think that Los Angeles might not repeat itself as a Super Bowl champion.

Los Angeles Chargers @ Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons averaged more yards per throw than yards per pass with Cordarrell Patterson scoring twice in the second leg. Patterson impressed and in the third quarter withdrew a third series of TDs…the Chargers had five plays in the first quarter and didn’t record a first down until 12 minutes before halftime… Gerald Everett failed early in the second half and was unable to take advantage of the absence of LA’s top WRs (unlike Joshua Palmerscored a career-high 106 yards)… Austin Thanks. wasn’t effective but saw nine more goals and somehow scored his 10th touchdown in the last five games despite not seeing a single carry. inside the five yard line this season through Sunday. He is very also nearly scored a third touchdown. It is also worth noting the newcomer Isaiah Spiller (available in 97 percent of Sportzshala’s leagues) seems to have arrived after LA’s farewell as the team’s new RB2.

Drake London had a tough game throwing just 3.3 yards on target and late loss of decisive fumble. The game is really on another game involving two separate lost fumblesMarcus Mariota missed wide open Kyle Pitts late in the fourth quarter for a potential 73-yard touchdown. It’s also possible that Pitts could have taken a better route, but a huge opportunity was missed anyway.

Miami Dolphins @ Chicago Bears

Justin Fields ran for the most yards in a game (178) quarterback in NFL regular season history, added three TD passes and became the best fantasy QB this week. Fields scored almost 10 more fantasy points than any other quarterback despite only throwing for 123 yards (4.4 YPA). marked by spectacular 61-yard TD run. The fields had good touchdown pass Darnell Mooneywin from newbie Chase Claypool and it only gets better.

Fields will enter either the top 10 or the top three fantasy QBs depending on future matches.

Claypool actually had a much more effective game than his points would suggest. First, he drew a long pass interference flag, then he dropped an onscreen pass that would win many yards, and finally, he had to draw another long PI flag later that would put the Bears in FG range (game instead ended one game late thanks to a rebound Unflappable Saint Brown).

Jeff Wilson Jr. fixed catch TD during his debut with the Dolphins and was touched Raheem Mostert. Wilson is available in 50% of Sportzshala leagues and needs to be added to all formats, especially with Mostert, one of the biggest injury risks… Dolphins got help from blocked punt that went for a touchdown, but the attack deserves a lot of credit for scoring a goal (only once) in more difficult conditions; The Bears defended much better at home, it was windy, and the Chicago turf bothered the fast forwards. Tua Tagovailoa ranked in the top five fantasy QBs for the second week in a row and continues to lead the YPA league. Tyreke Hill as well as Jaylen Waddle the duo have the second-most receiving yards in first nine games in NFL history (Waddle picked up a long penalty late, keeping them out of No. 1).

Carolina Panthers @ Cincinnati Bengals

Joe Mixon scored the most PPR points (45.1) of any defenseman in any game this season – at halftime. He finished with over 200 yards from scrimmage, five touchdowns and scored the most fantastic RB glasses in the game since Alvin Camara in 2020. Mixon scored over a third of his season’s fantastic points on Sunday. After a disastrous performance against the Browns, it was a game “right” for the Bengals and Mixon’s fantasy managers.

dj moore was not targeted for the remainder of the first half despite colliding with an eliminated Bengals minor as PJ Walker may not be the answer after all. In fact, the Bengals had more points (35) than the Panthers in yards (32) at halftime, leading to Baker Mayfield starting in the third quarter (most likely, he will have another chance to start moving forward).

Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions

Aaron Rogers was knocked down three times from the two-meter line “Lviv” (twice in the end zone), almost corresponds to its total number over the past five years despite the fact that playing indoors against the Lions defense made it easy to get the most YPA (7.8) and points per game (32.1) in the NFL. Rodgers hasn’t hit a 7.0 YPA in five straight games and will face a tough Cowboys and Eagles defense in two of the next three weeks. To be fair to Rodgers, he plays through a real thumb injury and led Green Bay in a rush on Sunday during a preview. Romeo Dubs, Aaron Jones as well as Christian Watson everyone leaves with injuries.

Dubs left after a 17-yard catch on Great Britain’s first offensive play of the game and he was reported to have left the stadium wearing boots and crutches. Allen Lazard will benefit as long as Dubs is on the sidelines. AJ Dillon will be a fantasy mandatory start if Jones misses time, but it’s no longer a move to win the league as it seemed before the start of the season… Jamal Williams dependent on landing and it sounds like D’Andre Swift won’t be completely healthy again anytime soon. Rogers interceptions in the red zone are very painful Amon-Ra Saint BrownFantasy Managers on Sunday (the game scenario resulted in only 26 pass attempts from Jared Goff).

Las Vegas Raiders @ Jacksonville Jaguars

Travis Etienne as well as Davante Adams both scored twice, with the latter scoring 17 goals. Adams had a big game and easily became the best fantasy release this week. Lawrence’s struggle in the red zone seems like good news for Etienne’s fantasy value as he was fed on Sunday with scoring chances…Raiders more 17-0 losses (three) than wins (two) this season and fell to 0-5 away with a loss to a team that had just played in London last week.

Indianapolis Colts @ New England Patriots

Sam Elinger struggled badly (3.6 YPA), like most young quarterbacks when Bill Belichickand lack of goals Deon Jackson was as disappointing as Michael Pittmanbox account. The Colts had minus four passing yards at the end of the first half in a game in which the teams totaled just 324 yards… Mac Jones missed wide open Ramondra Stevenson for a big win, but RB still led the team with seven goals and secured a good one-handed tackle for the second week in a row (this is for the touchdown). Stevenson, however, had a quieter game than many DFS players expected, thanks to New England losing three offensive linemen and Jay Jay Taylor unexpectedly stealing 10 carries (including at the goal line).

Buffalo Bills @ New York Jets

Josh Allen was third-highest-scoring fantasy quarterback this week thanks to his runningwhen he fought fiercely rising Jets defense that knocked him out twice. Nyheim Hines was invisible during his Buffalo debut, while Michael Carter as well as James Robinson form a smooth timeshare in New York… Garrett Wilson hit all seven targets for 84 yards in one minute of the second half when he hobbled after the catch. Shortly thereafter, the impressive rookie returned, but had only one catch for eight yards in the final 29 minutes. However, it was another noteworthy performance by Wilson considering he hit the target 36% of the time. Zach Wilsonpasses and accounted for 60% of QB’s passing yards. Wilson so obviously alpha … Imagine this Jets lineup with Justin Fields (and if Brice Hall not hurt and Elijah Moore was still alive).

Minnesota Vikings @ Washington Commanders

Justin Jefferson still aiming (13) at an extremely high level…
