NFL Week 9 Fantasy Football Superflex Rankings

Bills quarterback Josh Allen finds running room against Miami . Jg 103121 Bills 21

Week 9 of the fantasy football season is here, as are my weekly .5-PPR superflex rankings to assist with start/sit decisions in what can often be complicated league formats. The key to winning superflex matchups is to understand the range of outcomes with weekly projections.

We will examine these players using tiers. For example, any player in Tier 2 should be started over a player in Tier 3. Within any tier, these choices are going to be a matter of preference.

Since the quarterback pool is limited to essentially 32 starters per week, we will be breaking down the top-100 superflex options each week. Let’s get to it!

As a reminder, there are four teams on bye this week: the Detroit Lions, Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Washington Football Team.


Name Team Position Opp Proj Pts
Josh Allen BUF QB @ JAC 26
Lamar Jackson BAL QB vs MIN 26.2
Patrick Mahomes KC QB vs GB 21.3
Kyler Murray ARI QB @ SF 21.8
Matthew Stafford LAR QB vs TEN 20.5
Justin Herbert LAC QB @ PHI 20.4
Dak Prescott DAL QB vs DEN 23.2
Kirk Cousins MIN QB @ BAL 16.7
Joe Burrow CIN QB vs CLE 19.2
Aaron Rodgers GB QB @ KC 19.9
Derek Carr LV QB @ NYG 19.6
Derrick Henry TEN RB @ LAR 15.2
Jalen Hurts PHI QB vs LAC 19

Moving into the top spot for Week 9, Josh Allen has been slicing teams up effortlessly and adding bonus fantasy points on the ground as well. Last week, he rushed for 55 yards and a touchdown against the Miami Dolphins. This week, the Buffalo Bills draw the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars — putting Allen into another absolute smash position.

Jalen Hurts‘ cracks are starting to show, as he finally posted his first sub-20-point outing against the Detroit Lions. Granted, the Philadelphia Eagles were perfectly content running the ball with Boston Scott, Jordan Howard and Kenneth Gainwell. Hurts has top-five potential every week thanks to his legs, but until he provides some consistent passing ability, his ranks will suffer.
