Coaching Tips

Week 9: In the heart of the bye weeks

  • Six teams have a bye this week which will impact plenty of fantasy rosters. The Falcons, Bills, Bears, Lions, Packers and Titans all have Week 9 off.
  • This is where waiver wire pickups from earlier in the season become extremely important since you'll have to keep some of your studs on the bench.
  • Streaming a defense will be a popular strategy the next couple of weeks, so target defensive units that face low-scoring teams (ie the Bengals play the Jaguars in Week 9).
  • Six more teams have a bye next week (Texans, Colts, Vikings, Patriots, Chargers, Redskins), so make sure you're looking ahead and aren't caught unaware in Week 10.
  • Don't forget about Thursday: The Saints take on the Panthers on Thursday Night Football only on NFL Network, and both teams are stacked with fantasy starters. Make sure to set your lineup before kickoff.
