Week 9 fantasy drafters, fallers: Justin Fields enters elite subject, D’Andre Swift performs second fiddle and extra

There are, Justin Fields perhaps the QB1 now. It has been nice. He’s an elite athlete with the pace of a premier working again. He is greater than Lamar Jackson and simply as quick. However as he has turned his season round, in three video games, he has rushed 37 instances for 320 yards with three scores. That is a tempo for 209 carries in a season. Is that this one thing you may program on your QB and count on him to take care of? I say, “No manner.” Seven individuals carry a sport, perhaps three or 4 relying on the design, actually the best degree. That is 119 luggage. His pace within the final three weeks is loopy. It isn’t a sustainable enterprise mannequin.

Noah Fant It is the large story in Seattle. I do not know if we are able to belief him, however 96 yards on six targets is an automated pickup. Once more, the Cardinals are horrible towards tight ends. This appears to be their plan on that aspect of the ball. It is unusual.

By Andrew Hopkins misplaced a second TD on an unlawful process name Robbie Anderson, who did not appear to have his head within the sport in any respect. Anderson has talked about retiring, and I would not be stunned if he stated he would stop in the midst of the season.

Kenneth Walker run laborious and quick however the Seahawks drafted properly and have fully rebuilt their offensive line into one of many high models within the league.

Kliff Kingsbury must be fired. How was he ever employed? We knew in 2019 that Patrick Mahomes was a god, and my grandmother, who by no means watched soccer, might inform that Kingsbury misplaced in school to the most effective QBs ever, and that needs to be disallowed.

The Rams have the worst way forward for any workforce. No elections. Numerous superior offers. Matthew Stafford seems to be injured. Their greatest participant (Cooper Kupp) will likely be 30-plus subsequent yr. They can not intervene. They’re in no hurry. There isn’t a second WR. No working backs. That they had 9 first downs and have been 4-for-15 on third down. Sean McVay goes to destroy his profession if he honors that extension via 2026 that he signed. There isn’t a hope right here.

Tom Brady it was additionally horrible till he lastly pulled it out. I am fairly certain Doug Williams threw that final TD move Chris Godwin rating. I consider that was round 1979.

The Falcons are unusual dolphins. In addition they run their passing sport via solely two gamers. on sunday, Kyle Pitts and Drake London mixed for 14 of the workforce’s 24 targets. However that they had 50 yards, not even 4 yards per goal. Marcus Mariota left about 73 yards and a game-winning TD on the sphere late within the sport, lacking a large open Pitts. Mariota is likely one of the worst QBs we have seen. It is like he is a rookie.

there are Cordarrelle Patterson deserves to nonetheless be the RB with probably the most touches in Atlanta? He discovered pay grime twice. That saved his day, however he was outdone by the opposite two backs on this horrible committee of three. I might look to maneuver Patterson.

Josh Palmer common of 10 yards per goal. I’ve to provide him credit score. He’s a WR2 whereas each Mike Williams and Keenan Allen (who’s doing his Michael Thomas impression) are out.

However there is no such thing as a juice on this passing sport. Justin Herbert Averaged 6.4 yards per try. That is down 1.1 from final yr (when it wasn’t a lot better than the statistical common). Within the final 4 weeks, Herbert has 4 complete touchdowns. You aren’t loopy if you’re trying to be supported by Herbert. However QB is so weak.

Tiriug Hill and Jaylen Waddle get 60-70% of the dolphin yards each week. A workforce with one high nook (or two actually good ones) will shut down this offense. That workforce is just not the Bears.

Miami’s protection is nothing particular. They have been twenty third in yards allowed and gave up 368 to Chicago. (See, Dolphins followers, that is taking pointless pictures on the Dolphins, which I did not do final week. Now you may complain within the feedback.)

In that case Baker Mayfield is again DJ Moore perhaps again on the surface. However in line with Michael Florio (not that man) of the NFL Community, Moore had a 40%+ yardage share with Mayfield within the second half.

Whoever the QB is, I will say it once more: get it Marshall Terrace.

Joe Mixon he’s at all times among the many leaders in anticipated fantasy factors as a result of the Bengals use him as their fantasy RB. However he had probably the most fantasy factors by a participant all yr with 5 TDs towards Carolina.

Come on with Aaron Rodgers. That is simply ache. It’s in decline. Not everybody performs into their 40s on the high of their sport. We have been spoiled by Drew Brees and Tom Brady. Rodgers has a profession low YPA. He already has extra picks than any season since 2017. He solely scored 9 factors towards the worst protection within the league. That is his age 39 season. That is tremendous previous. Wealthy Gannon was the 2002 MVP at 37 after which that was it. It was washed away beginning the subsequent yr.

i like Alan Lazard, who has 5 TDs and over 400 yards in seven video games. Who would have thought we’d fortunately begin Rodgers WR – however not Rodgers. Lazard has a big catch radius and may get deep. You are going to roll your eyes, however he truthfully jogs my memory of Mike Evans.

what about Aaron Jones? He hobbled to the locker room after spraining his ankle. Then issues appeared to go south:

what are you by Andrew Swift defenders going to say now? It should get a fairly anticipated share of touches when? He had 9 snaps! When is it going to succeed in even 40, which remains to be dangerous? Week 13?

We have now to rank Jamal Williams not decrease than RB15 now.

The Colts-Patriots was only a brutal watch. Get this: the groups mixed for 19 first downs and 324 yards. Not mediocre, collectively! The Colts have been 0-for-14 on third down and 0-for-2 on fourth down. Good lord. OK another: 2.0 yards per play for the Colts and three.3 for the Patriots. The groups began the sport with 9 yards on the primary 23 performs. Uncle!

I am unable to consider I am saying this, however they should get it Matt Ryan again there. I believe Frank Reich could also be fired this week. I might shoot him.

Michael Carter it’s a lot better than James Robinson however the Jets need Robinson to run between the tackles. Someway the Jets ran down the throats of the Payments to win the sport with out their greatest RB and most of their offensive line.

Jets followers could not care much less Elijah Moore however he ran 14 routes and had no targets. Denzel Mims he had extra snaps and is a high blocker, plus he truly made the game-winning catch, as he compelled the Payments to trip earlier than the Jets kicked the game-winning aim within the ultimate two minutes.

The unusual factor about it Zach Wilson is second within the NFL in QBR when not beneath strain (perhaps he handed Patrick Mahomes given how terrible Mahomes was beneath strain Sunday night time). The evaluation of predicting QBs is that the non-pressure stats are the most effective as a result of it’s the largest pattern and the offense can restrict the strain via schemes. On Sunday: 17-for-21 for 145 yards and a TD (close to excellent 91.3 QBR).

The Payments have issues offensively, however solely a high protection just like the Jets can make the most of it. Buffalo can beat the opposite groups within the AFC with Josh Allen and the previous sport. However the Jets received 15 pressures and 5 sacks on Allen regardless of blitzing simply twice. So they may drop seven. Plus, the Jets have two high cornerbacks and should you cease Stefon Diggs from making huge performs, who else goes to beat you? That is a mode that hinders Allen (and any QB). Allen was throwing deep and that was not the way in which he performed on Sunday. Allen appeared like he was off but it surely was as a result of he needed to play small ball and he refused.

Gabe Davis This is likely one of the worst calls I’ve ever made. The method was good. The modeling was secure. I studied it properly. However not solely is he a No. 2 receiver, he is barely a No. 3 receiver.

TJ Hockenson shock with 9 targets. This was one other ugly offensive sport. Cousins ​​of the Church he began out 9-for-10 after which went 13-for-30 from there.

The identical for Derek Carrwhich dropped proper after a red-hot begin the place he had that type of chemistry with him Dana Adams that we dreamed of. It was gradual although.

Sure, after I simply purchased in fully Josh Jacobs, it has been actually superior. So drop him to the underside of the primary row of RBs.

Christian Church he is in all probability a WR2, not less than one finish.

Trevor Lawrence very properly after the Jaguars fell behind 17-0 minutes into the second quarter. I am actually rooting for Lawrence and Fields and Wilson. The league wants some new blood at QB to exchange Stafford, Brady, Rodgers.
