Welcome to Week 9 of The Worksheet, a fantasy football overview, by Rich Hribar.

We’re closing in on the final quarter of your fantasy regular season. Week 9 has four teams on bye this week, with the Rams, Bengals, Saints, and Falcons off this week. Make sure you have all the absences for players on those rosters covered.

Game, Total and Props

As the author, it’s imperative that I note that this is an expectations-based column over a linear start/sit forum. The labels for each subset of players for each game is simply the vehicle for those expectations and have a different context for each player. 

This article will be updated throughout the week to reflect major news or injury implications. I encourage that you use the game by game tables and data points here in conjunction with the player rankings that will be available every week this season on Thursdays and enjoy the games.
