NFL Fantasy Football: Week 9 quarterback rankings

Posted Nov 2, 2015 by Larry Seely
This time of year fantasy football owners are trying to earn the top seed for the playoffs or battling just for a shot at winning a title and knowing what players to start is essential. With the injuries that have hit the NFL, research is key for success.

New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees is coming off a record-tying performance on Sunday with seven touchdown passes and over 500 yards through the air and while those kind of numbers aren't expected again, he and his team are finding their way and that could help any owner that has the veteran signal caller as a starter in week 9 against Tennessee.
Phillip Rivers is having an outstanding year, despite his San Diego Chargers struggling to win football games. With yet another 300 yard game this past weekend and a match up against Chicago on Sunday, Rivers is a must-start quarterback in every league.
No NFL defense has stopped Tom Brady this season and with so many options in the passing game, New England is rolling on offense. The Patriots face a good Washington Redskins defense this weekend, but owners should expect another solid outing from the veteran and a 20-point performance is within reach.
Owners hurt by injuries or a quarterback with a bye week have some options off the waiver wire. Jay Cutler of Chicago is the safest bet this week. The Bears signal caller has at least 17 points in each game since his return to the lineup in week 4 and facing a banged up Chargers defense, this game could become a shootout and a big point total for those willing to gamble on the veteran.
For those looking long-term, Tony Romo is expected back in the next couple of weeks and grabbing the Dallas QB now, could payoff later. The Cowboys have struggled since their star went down, but expect a second half run from the team once they get their leader back on the football field.
