Fantasy RB PPR Rankings for Week 9

Our Week 9 fantasy RB PPR rankings could really be shaken by the state of several injured riders. Obviously, when someone as important as Christian McCaffrey (hamstring), Saquon Barkley (ankle), or David Montgomery (knee) loses time, it affects all types of fantasy football leagues, but those are three notable backs that they catch passes. Everyone might be playing this week, but fantasy owners likely won’t finalize their decisions to get started, sitting until closer to Sunday, while we wait to see who gets out of the IR and who ends up on the inactive list. (James Robinson?).

Unfortunately, the league’s most targeted RB and pass catcher, D’Andre Swift, will be out this week. He is accompanied by Leonard Fournette, Antonio Gibson and JD McKissic, and Alex Collins. Maybe just as bad is Detroit, Seattle and Washington are in the top 10 worst defenses against the RBs, so that takes away some very favorable matchups.

Fortunately, there are still plenty of favorable matchups available, and this week, several go to frustrating committees. That may seem like a waste, but it actually puts more borderline RBs into play as legitimate starters, as both brokers could have at least flexible value. The Bills (@ Jaguars), Broncos (@ Cowboys), Eagles (vs. Chargers), Raiders (@ Giants) and Texans (@ Dolphins) have at least two RBs likely to start in the PPR leagues. David Johnson (@ Dolphins), Boston Scott (vs. Chargers) and Kenyan Drake (@ Giants) get the biggest hits from PPR.

Myles Gaskin (vs. Texans) is in a great place, especially in the PPR leagues, and Nyheim Hines (@ Jets) could also come out of his seeming all-season funk, although we still have doubts about him. Devonta Freeman (against Vikings) also takes the lightest of blows, catching three passes in two of the last three games. If Latavius ​​Murray (ankle) is out, Freeman is probably a must-start, but even if Murray plays, Freeman could be a PPR flex.

Damien Harris (@ Panthers) is always a tougher call in PPR leagues, especially in a tough matchup. With four teams on hold and several other major injuries, he may not be able to afford a seat for Harris, but he may need a TD to really pay off in PPR. The same goes for Elijah Mitchell (vs. Cardinals) and Khalil Herbert (@ Steelers). James Conner (@ 49ers) seems to have a knack for scoring, but he’s riskier than usual in PPR this week. Chase Edmonds has a gift for no scoring (although he got into the box last week), but considering he stayed in the top five in RB targets and catches all year, his floor is pretty safe in the PPR leagues, at least for a push-up. .

Mike Davis (against the Saints), Samaje Perine (against the Browns) and Brandon Bolden (@ Panthers) are generally considered better in the PPR leagues, but this week, we are not high in any of them. That’s also true for Michael Carter (against the Colts), but after his breakup in Week 8, it will be difficult to sit him down.

Perhaps your RB body is so exhausted that you need to take a chance on one of the frontier players we talked about in this introduction. We’ve all been there, so do what you have to do. But in the meantime, let’s hope players like McCaffrey, David Montgomery (knee) and Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) get out of the IR and Barkley and Robinson get back on the field. That will make life easier for everyone … well, except for those who own your backups. This is how it goes in fanasy football …

Note: We will update these RB PPR rankings throughout the week, so check back for the analysis and the latest player movement.
