Fantasy Football Primer: Week 9

Posted by Fantasy_101 on November 2, 2012 – 12:09 pm

The views expressed in this article are not of the New York Football Giants but those of an independent Fantasy Expert.

Week 9 Starters

Carson Palmer QB Raiders

Last Week: 209 passing yards, 2 touchdowns, 1 int

Palmer is quietly having another good season. He has thrown for at least 200 yards in each of his seven games started and has recorded a touchdown in every game but one.  With just five interceptions on the year and nine passing touchdowns, the Raiders veteran QB looks to keep the ball rolling vs. a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that ranks 31st in the league, giving up an average of over 309 passing yards per game.

Michael Turner RB Falcons

Last Week:  24 carries, 58 yards

Turner saw plenty of action last week and carried the ball 24 times as the Falcons were in control for most of the game in their 30-17 win.  With two of his worst weeks of the season in back-to-back contests (33 and 58 yards rushing), Turner will look to get back on track this week vs. Dallas.  Though it won’t be easy task by any means, Turner always shows up in big games like these.

Andre Roberts WR Cardinals

Last Week: 65 yards receiving

Roberts continues to show his value as a consistent starting wide out as he hauled in seven catches (tied for career high) last week for 65 yards. Combined with the week before (seven receptions for a career best 103 yards and a touchdown), Roberts’ stock will keep rising as long as the Cardinals are throwing. A trip to Lambeau field is next on the schedule, and that should be the least of their concerns.

Mike Williams WR Buccaneers

Last Week:  6 catches 68 yards, TD

Williams’ third year has proven a lot of doubters wrong on just how good he really can be with a threat opposite of him in Vincent Jackson.  Williams already has four touchdowns and 436 receiving yards on the year through just seven games played (compared to his 3 touchdowns and 771 yards receiving all of last year in 16 games played).  Williams will look to top his 11 touchdowns he had in his rookie campaign and capitalize on the 21st ranked pass defense that is the Oakland Raiders.

Davone Bess WR Dolphins

Last Week: 4 catches for 28 yards

Bess’ problem isn’t that he’s not getting opportunities to catch the ball, but just not enough to make plays that give the necessary yardage to impact your team in a positive manner.  In Weeks 3 and 4, Bess totaled 209 yards from 12 catches. Since then, he’s had 12 catches for 119 yards in three games.  Still searching for his first score of the year, this could be Bess break out game of the season.

Top Defense: Packers

Last Week:  2 sacks, FR, Touchdown

The Packers defense is one that is very similar to that of the New England Patriots, when discussing two defenses in where they may let up more than the average amount of points, but will always make up for it with big plays off turnovers that make them so valuable.  With absolutely no running game presence whatsoever, the Cardinals offense could be in for another rough week.

Bench

Christian Ponder QB Vikings

Last Week: 251 passing yards, Touchdown, Int

Throughout the first four games of the season Ponder did not turn the ball once.  But in his most recent four games played, he has seven interceptions and one fumble lost.  There’s no questioning Ponder’s potential could be great with a dual threat type of play, but with players such as Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers struggling and losing in Seattle, there’s not too much confidence this week. The Vikings face a secondary that allows 227 yards passing per game and 84 yards rushing. It could be a grind-it-out type of ball game.

Jaguars Defense

The Jaguars defense has actually been pretty stout all year, considering the personnel issues they have had and the struggling offense of the Jaguars that hasn’t help matters by any means.  Matthew Stafford is also coming off one of his best performances as a professional, throwing for over 350 yards and 4 touchdowns without Calvin Johnson putting up big numbers once again, which makes them that much more scarier.  Playing in a Dome is not going to help out any defense either when playing the caliber offense of the Detroit Lions and especially coming in with a lot of momentum and in a must win atmosphere.

Alex Green RB Packers

Last Week: 54 yards rushing

Green by no means has been bad replacement for the injured Cedric Benson thus far.  The carries have been there with over 70 in four games combined,  but the average has been pretty abysmal (2.9) and the zero touchdowns hasn’t helped much.  If you’re looking for over hundred yards and score, then you should be shopping elsewhere.  Green will get you those 60 combined yards each week he starts, which won’t hurt but definitely won’t help you too much either.

Ryan Broyles WR Lions

Last Week: 3 catches 37 yards, TD

Broyles has been red hot these past two weeks, already having more touchdowns than Megatron with two in just two games played all year. Though as Titus Young has been emerging and solidified as the solid No. 2 guy in Detroit, Broyles is doomed to have a off day sooner than later.

Kenny Britt, WR Titans

Last Week: 3 catches for 34 yards

Britt has been a disappointment to say the least so far in 2012 when talking about fantasy or just production as an NFL starting receiver. With all the talent in the world and athletic ability yet to be shown, all signs point to another struggling game as they take on one of best secondaries and defenses in the league, if not the best in the Chicago Bears.
