2016 has been tough on some of the league’s top QBs. With injuries and team struggles, Fantasy owners are struggling to find consistent quarterback play for their teams.
In Week 9, big-time players like Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger and Carson Palmer will be out of action. Though there are more doubts than sure-fire picks, the following five quarterbacks are in for big games in Week 9:
Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers have been a disappointment in 2016. Last season’s MVP has been a flop for Fantasy owners who used an early pick on him. Well, in Week 9 against the Los Angeles Rams, Newton will put on a show in Hollywood. He will help both his team and your Fantasy team this week.
The Atlanta Falcons need to prove they are contenders, and there is no better time to do that than Thursday Night Football. As the Falcons travel to Tampa Bay, Matt Ryan and Julio Jones must take down their division rival, and if they want to prove they belong amongst the NFL Elite, they must do it in a convincing fashion.
The Dallas Cowboys are one of the best teams in the NFL, and this week, they face off against one of the worst teams in the NFL. They will rely heavily on Ezekiel Elliott, and as he puts up big numbers, the field will open up for Dak Prescott to make some plays down the field. Look for Prescott and Dez Bryant to connect for at least one big touchdown.
The New Orleans Saints gave the Seattle Seahawks all they could handle. After playing against one of the league’s toughest defenses, it will be nice to play against the San Francisco 49ers, one of the league’s worst defenses.
In Week 9, start any Saint you can. Brees will spread the ball around—like he always does—and he will easily lead the team down the field.
Andrew Luck is a talented QB, and if the Indianapolis Colts have any chance of making the playoffs, they must defeat the Green Bay Packers in Week 9.
Though this might seem like a daunting task, Luck and Co. have the firepower to keep up with any team in the NFL; however, they lack the defensive prowess to keep other teams out of the end zone, which is perfect for Luck and those who have him on their Fantasy teams.
