Fantasy Football Week 9: Start 'Em, Sit 'Em Advice

BR StudiosFeatured ColumnistNovember 3, 2011

Week 8 in the NFL certainly threw us a couple fantasy curveballs. After putting up a ridiculous 62 points in Week 7, the New Orleans Saints came back down to earth, losing to the previously winless Rams. Drew Brees, Jimmy Graham and Darren Sproles disappointed. Who saw that coming?

We also saw Tim Tebow lay a serious egg against the Detroit Lions, who aren’t exactly a shutdown defense.

Oh, and remember that Chris Johnson guy? The Titans ran, but he was awful again, only managing 34 yards on 14 carries.

So what did we learn? Same thing we learn every week: Anything can happen in the NFL. Stars can struggle, seemingly invincible teams can embarrass themselves and Tebow is indeed human.

Bleacher Report NFL analyst Evan Adrian is here to break down some crucial matchups, and tells you exactly which stars are ready to shine and who should be relegated to your fantasy bench in Week 9. Enjoy!
