Orlovsky, Orton, Avery and Olsen. No, this isn’t just a law firm that is willing to help you receive the compensation you deserve from a serious injury suffered at work, it’s also a list of fantasy starters recommended in week nine. It’s not exactly Manning, Tomlinson and Owens, but who said fantasy football was predictable?
When using this list, try and remember a couple basic rules:
1) Studs – Always play your studs. Each position will include a list of players that are considered studs and should not be benched. If you have the luxury of needing to decide between studs, check out the matchups or feel free to let the shark tank assist you in your decisions. This list will change from week to week.
2) Depth – Every fantasy team is different and some have more depth than others. Only follow the recommended moves if your team depth allows you to make such a move.
Enough of the chit-chat, onto the list!!
Teams on a bye week:
Kurt Warner, Arizona at St. Louis
Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay at Tennessee
Peyton Manning, Indianapolis vs. New England
Donovan McNabb, Philadelphia at Seattle
Jay Cutler, Denver vs. Miami
Kyle Orton, Chicago (vs.
Adrian Peterson, Minnesota vs. Houston
Brian Westbrook, Philadelphia at Seattle
Matt Forte, Chicago vs. Detroit
Marion Barber, Dallas at N.Y. Giants
Steven Jackson, St. Louis vs. Arizona
Clinton Portis, Washington vs. Pittsburgh
Jamal Lewis, Cleveland (vs.
Steve Slaton, Houston (at Minnesota): The pass receptions for Slaton have dropped significantly from the first three games of the season where he was averaging five catches which helped make up for the lack of rushing production. Slaton will continue to struggle on the ground against a tough Vikings defense and it’s unlikely he’ll do enough damage catching passes out of the backfield to make him worthy of a start.
Calvin Johnson, Detroit at Chicago
Anquan Boldin, Arizona at St. Louis
Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona at St. Louis
Greg Jennings, Green Bay at Tennessee
Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis vs. New England
Andre Johnson, Houston at Minnesota
T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Cincinnati vs. Jacksonville
Randy Moss, New England at Indianapolis
Brandon Marshall, Denver vs. Miami
Santana Moss, Washington vs. Pittsburgh
Roddy White, Atlanta at Oakland
Terrell Owens, Dallas (at N.Y. Giants): Yes, Owens was removed from the Studs list. While he should no longer be considered an automatic start, there will be weeks that he should be considered for your lineup and this week is one of those weeks. Owens loves the spotlight and a game on Sunday night against the defending Super Bowl Champs and division rival Giants will be enough to motivate Owens for a big game despite Brad Johnson at QB.
Kevin Walter, Houston (at
Dallas Clark, Indianapolis vs. New England
Owen Daniels, Houston at Minnesota
Chris Cooley, Washington vs. Pittsburgh
Tony Gonzalez, Kansas City vs. Tampa Bay
Greg Olsen, Chicago (vs.
