Week 9 of the 2020 NFL season kicks off on Thursday Night Football with the Green Bay Packers going up against the injury-ravaged San Francisco 49ers, barring any rescheduling due to COVID-19. We’re now officially into the second half of the season, and the time has come to set our sights on fantasy football's home stretch.
The following are players at every fantasy position worth starting or sitting based on recent performance and Week 9 matchups.
START: Drew Lock, Denver Broncos
Lock can be a maddeningly strange quarterback, but his style of football can lead to relative fantasy success — he leads all quarterbacks in the NFL this season with a 10.7 average depth of target.
To double-down, Lock is afforded the luxury of opposing the sieve of a secondary known as the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons happen to allow the most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. Those looking to stream the QB position could do worse than chase Lock's downfield aggressiveness against this forgiving defense.
