No A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, T.Y. Hilton, Odell Beckham Jr., or Alshon Jeffery — honestly, despite some of the star power on the sidelines, our Week 9 fantasy WR rankings are getting off fairly easy considering there are six teams on bye this week. With the Cardinals and Jaguars not really contributing much to the wide receiver ranks, and the Eagles, Colts, and Giants not offering much beyond one sure starter and some matchup-based sleepers (Sterling Shepard, Chester Rogers and Nelson Agholor in PPR leagues), fantasy football owners shouldn’t need to turn to the waiver wire if they have even adequate depth.
Ultimately, our rankings are fairly strong for the first six-team bye of the season. Injuries to key players like Mike Evans, Cooper Kupp, Keke Coutee, and Allen Robinson could shake things up depending on their statuses, but you should be able to field a decent starting corps. Favorable matchups for the Redskins (vs. Falcons), Panthers (vs. Bucs), Ravens (vs. Steelers), Raiders (@ 49ers) and 49ers (vs. Raiders) give life to lots of mediocre receivers who would otherwise be off our radars.
Week 9 Rankings:
