Other than Calvin Johnson’s monster performance against the Dallas Cowboys, the rest of the games in Week 8 left us a bit hungry and yearning for more action. Perhaps it was the crazy amount of teams (6) on a bye.
Will it get better in Week 9?
Not likely. Once again we have six teams on a bye in Week 9 and there are some offensive juggernauts that won’t be in action. The Broncos, Lions, 49ers, Giants, Cardinals, and Jaguars all have the week off. If you take Kickers and Defenses out of the equation there’s about 22 big time Fantasy Football Contributors not in action this week because of a bye. That’s major problems for Fantasy Football managers looking to string together some winning weeks for the playoff push.
Luckily, as we discuss during the show, there weren’t many injuries this past week and there’s some solid options emerging on the Waiver Wire.
Plug in your headphones and boost up the volume for two hours of Fantasy Football strategy and analysis heading into Week 9.
