With the fantasy football season now more than half over, there is still time to make a late run at a playoff spot if you are behind the eight ball, or to increase your odds of playing in the second season.
A large percentage of the waiver wire stars have been gone for weeks, but from time to time, you will see someone pique the interest of the world with a dominant three-touchdown performance. Everyone has to scramble to make sure that they get their hands on that player, if for no other reason than to keep him away from the competition.
At the end of Week 9, there were a lot of great performances all around the league. Some of them expected—oh, Adrian Peterson was good, shocker—while others exploded on the scene to potentially add value over the final seven or eight weeks depending on your league's schedule.
As we prepare to put a ribbon on the first week of games in November for the NFL, here is a breakdown of whether or not you should expect greatness from the stars of Week 9 in fantasy football.
The rules are simple: We don't tell you things about players you already know. Doug Martin has been one of the most productive fantasy players for weeks, so us telling you to start him after his incredible performance against Oakland is obvious.
These are strictly about players who you might be able to find on a waiver wire and are thinking about adding in preparation for this week's games.
