Entering Week 9 of the 2011 NFL season, fantasy football owners are faced with tough calls to make on players that are either coming off of an injury, or are trying to come out of a rehab from the bye week, and needing to determine if it is worth starting them or sitting them down.
We will look at a number of injured players who appear to be ready to play in Week 9, (as of the time of this publication), and will project how well we think they will fare. If you have a tough call to make on a certain position, and you own some of these players in question, maybe this will help to sway you in which direction to go. Or maybe your starter is on his bye week, and the only waiver wire options are guys coming off an injury.
For starters, please note that there are only four teams with a bye this week. They are Detroit, Minnesota, Carolina and Jacksonville. We have six teams returning to action this week, as they all had their bye week in Week 8. They are: Tampa Bay, Chicago, Green Bay, Atlanta, Oakland and the New York Jets.
