Week 9 was another great one in the NFL especially if your fantasy team was able to successfully navigate the six teams on a bye week and get a big W as we get ready for the playoff push. In case you were too hung over from celebrating the World Series or still recovering from your sugar coma from Halloween, here’s a full rundown of all the week 9 games highlighting all the fantasy football studs, duds, and sleepers you need to know.
Miami Dolphins 22, Cincinnati Bengals 20
Studs: The Bengals lost the game on a safety in OT, but had the better offensive numbers including big days from A.J. Green who caught 11 passes for 128 yards and Giovani Bernard had a pair of rushing touchdowns while running for 79 yards while catching all four passes thrown his way for 25 yards. Lamar Miller had a nice day for the Dolphins rushing for 105 yards, but he wasn’t able to find the end zone.
Duds: After three giant weeks, Andy Dalton came back to earth still throwing for 338 yards but failing to throw a TD and turning the ball over four times. The other QB in the game, Ryan Tannehill didn’t throw for a TD either while throwing for just 208 yards. He did salvage part of his fantasy day with a one yard QB sneak for a TD.
Sleepers: After his huge four-score week 8 performance, Marvin Jones had another solid game catching four of his seven targets for 66 yards. He’s been fairly consistent the last few weeks, so he’s far from a flash in the pan. Another Bengals receiver to watch is Mohamed Sanu who has targeted nine times while catching six passes for 62 yards. It’s also important to notice that Daniel Thomas got almost as many carries as Miller finishing with 38 yards on 12 carries. He isn’t a starting consideration yet, but it’s workload to keep an eye on for the rest of the season going forward.
