Week 9 fantasy start/sit advice


The most important decision a fantasy owner ever makes is the start/sit decision. You can have the best roster in the world, but if you pick the wrong starter in a given week it’s all for naught. Yes, you’re always starting Julio Jones and you’re (basically) never starting someone like John Kuhn, but the middle ground is rife with question marks.

Below, we’ll run through 20 of the top question marks for Week 9 and decide start or sit on them all.

Since then, he’s thrown nine touchdowns against two interceptions in five games — Tom Brady is the only quarterback with as many touchdowns and a better ratio.
