Not much time is left to get back into the mix in most fantasy leagues, but Week 9 is the time to get back into the race. Here are some players you should start or sit this week:
Terrelle Pryor (vs. Philadelphia): Pryor had that one big rushing touchdown at the start of last week’s contest, but he should be able to throw more in this contest and be a nice bye-week replacement.
Stevan Ridley (vs. Pittsburgh): For the third straight week, Ridley has found the endzone. Lucky for him, the Steelers have allowed the seventh most points to RBs on the road.
Denarius Moore (vs. Philadelphia): After having two catches for 32 yards last week, Pryor and Moore will be able to connect against the weak secondary of the Eagles.
Jason Witten (vs. Minnesota): Witten has struggled of late, but the Vikings struggle against the TE. Witten will score a touchdown this week.
Mason Crosby (vs. Chicago): Crosby is leading all kickers in points and the Bears have struggled to keep kickers off the board, especially on the road.
Kansas City DEF (vs. Buffalo): A third string quarterback and an injured running game is just the right solution for Kansas City to get back on track defensively.
Ryan Tannehill (vs. Cincinnati): With the Thursday night matchup against the Bengals, Tannehill may be chucking the ball for multiple picks in this contest.
Trent Richardson (vs. Houston): Richardson has struggled since coming to Indianapolis and it might be tough to run against this volatile Houston defense. Andrew Luck will likely rely on the pass to win this game.
Steve Johnson (vs. Kansas City): Gordon was the lone bad pick in last week’s sit ‘em against Kansas City, but a hobbled Johnson won’t be able to get much going this week.
Timothy Wright (vs. Seahawks): The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have trouble scoring against the Seahawks and Wright’s value will definitely go down in this matchup.
Greg Zuerlein (vs. Tennessee): Zuerlein has not made several kicks from distance and without a real solid option at QB, it will be tough to get those field goals on a regular basis.
Chicago DEF (vs. Green Bay): The Bears defense will take a beating against the run/pass attack that Green Bay brings to the table.
