JUMP TO A POSITION RANKING:
|Tier||Rank||Player||Opponent||Total||Spread||Implied Points||QB SOS||OL PBA||PPR||Injury Status|
Removed from list: Aaron Rodgers (out – COVID-19); Tua Tagovailoa (out – finger)
Tier 1 – Josh Allen and the Bills are two-touchdown favorites against the Jaguars. The Bills have led early and often this season, trailing by four or more points on only 6% of snaps, so Allen is used to putting up fantasy points in leading situations. He has top-five finishes in three out of five games where the Bills haven't trailed. The Jaguars serve up the second-best QB SOS on the slate. Allen is No. 1 in fantasy points per game.
Tier 2 – Matthew Stafford and the Rams are greater than a touchdown favorite in Week 9 — a scenario that is becoming the norm. The veteran has performed well in all game scripts, thanks to heavy passing-game utilization inside the five-yard line.
Tier 2 – Dak Prescott (calf) was limited in practice Wednesday but should be a full participant Thursday. The Cowboys carry a top-three implied point total on the week, but they have shown a willingness to run the ball when leading.

Tier 2 – Patrick Mahomes has back-to-back finishes outside the top 15 for the first time in his career. He is still a top-six option, but the Chiefs need to get their offense back on track. Mahomes managed only 206 yards and one touchdown against the Giants on Monday night in Week 8.
Tier 4 – Kyler Murray (ankle) hasn't practiced this week and is a game-time decision. The Cardinals play in the late window. Even if Murray suits up, don't expect his usual production. This is an easy week to bench Murray if you have another option in the first three tiers. Late pivot options if available: Ryan Tannehill, Jordan Love, Justin Fields, Ben Roethlisberger, Jimmy Garoppolo, Colt McCoy.
Tier 4 – Jordan Love will start Sunday with Aaron Rodgers out (COVID-19). The Chiefs offer up an above-average QB SOS.
Tier 4 – Jacoby Brissett gets the start in a great matchup against the Texans with Tua Tagovailoa out (finger).
