2016 Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Week 9 Quarterbacks

Ranking the top fantasy quarterbacks for Week 9.

The dark tunnel at the end of the light is getting closer as we hit Week 9.  With playoff seeding very far from locked in yet, a fantasy win is as important as ever. Make sure your lineup is as strong as possible with The Wolf’s Week 9 rankings.  

Note – Chiefs QB Alex Smith has been ruled out with a concussion. Nick Foles will get the start, but I’d hope you can find better.

Tier 1- Potential Top Scorers

1) Matt Ryan (ATL) @ TB

2) Drew Brees (NO) @ SF

3) Aaron Rodgers (GB) vs. IND

4) Andrew Luck (IND) @ GB

Tier 2 – Locked in QB1s

5) Cam Newton (CAR) @ LA – Perhaps in an effort to preserve their star (gone soft) QB, Jonathan Stewart is seeing a lot more goal line action. This has capped Newton’s upside somewhat, but no one would be surprised with a vintage 2 rushing TD, 2 passing TD performance.

6)  Philip Rivers (SD) vs. TEN

7) Jameis Winston (TB) vs. ATL

8) Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) @ BAL

9) Dak Prescott (DAL) @ CLE

1o) Marcus Mariota (TEN) @ SD

Tier 3 – QB2s you can start

11. Matthew Stafford (DET) @ MIN

12. Derek Carr (OAK) vs. DEN

13. Colin Kaepernick (SF) vs. NO – Kaep has been sneakily fantasy viable in his first two starts (18, 17 FP respectively) thanks to his legs; he now gets one of the worst defenses in the league against the run. I could never stomach starting the King Kneeler, but I can acknowledge his high ceiling in Week 9.

14. Blake Bortles (JAC) @ KC

15. Ryan Fitzpatrick (NYJ) @ MIA

16. Josh McCown (CLE) vs. DAL

17. Eli Manning (NYG) vs. PHI

Tier 4 – It’s just one of those days…

18. Russell Wilson (SEA) vs. BUF – Yes, he’s been that bad. No TDs in three straight. His second best fantasy performance of 2016 netted 13 pts. With his legs sapped, Wilson’s netted only 51 yards on the ground (Derek Carr has 63 by way of comparison). This has drained his fantasy appeal, and Wilson can be sent to the Waiver Wire.

19. Ryan Tannehill (MIA) vs. NYJ

20. Carson Wentz (PHI) @ NYG

21. Trevor Siemian (DEN) @ OAK

Tier 4.5 – When you don’t want to wake up 

22.  Joe Flacco (BAL) vs. PIT

23. Tyrod Taylor (BUF) @ SEA

24. Sam Bradford (MIN) vs. DET – Has only scored above 15 points twice this year… Even in a juicy matchup, the ceiling couldn’t be lower.

25. Case Keenum (LA) vs. CAR

26. Nick Foles (KC) vs. JAC
