article imageNFL Fantasy Football: Week 9 running back rankings

By Larry Seely     Nov 2, 2015 in Sports
Injuries hit the NFL hard over the weekend, especially at running back as a number of starters have been lost for at least a couple of weeks and in the case of Le'Veon Bell, for the entire season.
Those injuries will have fantasy football owners looking for options in week 9 and in some cases, help will be needed off the waiver wire. Here's a look at the RB rankings for this weekend and a couple players that can help owners in need.
Rookie Todd Gurley is setting all kinds of records as he's become the hottest player in the game. With four straight starts with over 120 yards and the ability to break a big play from anywhere on the field, this youngster is a must-start back in all leagues.
Chris Ivory should get a heavy workload on Sunday against Jacksonville. The NY Jets could play with a rookie at quarterback due to injuries and against a defense that has struggled this season, Ivory could get 15 points or more if he can find the end zone.
This weekend's game will feature several running backs that can be found on the waiver wire. A look at the match ups and owners can find a player that can help them win this week and possibly a back that can have a big impact on the rest of the NFL season.
DeAngelo Williams already showed his stuff during the first two games of the year for Pittsburgh, and now with Bell out for the season, the veteran back will get the starting nod again. This week he and his team face the surprising Oakland Raiders, but a solid game is expected and 10+ points is a clear target.
Jeremy Langford is likely to get the start for Chicago in week 9 and the rookie looked good in his time on the field against Minnesota on Sunday. With a game versus the Chargers on Sunday, the youngster could get plenty of touches and 100 yards rushing isn't out of the question.
