Fantasy Football Week 9 Quarterback Rankings

Fantasy Football Week 10 Quarterback Rankings

The 2021-22 NFL season is at its halfway point. Bye weeks have been taking place the past few weeks. This means that quarterbacks like Tom Brady and Taylor Heinicke will be out this week. On top of that injuries have started to mount up at this point of the season. It is always a great idea to evaluate backup options so that way fantasy managers are prepared if star players miss time. Here are the Fantasy Football Week 9 quarterback rankings.

*Ratings are subject to change due to injury reports or possible move to reserve/COVID-19 list*

(Check out the section below for details on players already rumored to possibly miss this week and how their replacement options rank for the week)

Key:
Must Start- a player who should definitely be in your lineup that week because of the combination of matchup and talent. They will likely finish near the top of the league in points that week and could repeat the production most weeks.
Starter- a player who makes fantasy owners comfortable starting week after week. Regardless of the matchup, this player has a high floor.
Low-End Starter- a player who should be started in most lineups but can possibly bottom out and finish below average on a given week. A high ceiling play in two-quarterback or superflex leagues.
Streamer- a player who could be a perfect replacement for a starter for a week or two. Starting this player may not win you your lineup but they will make sure that your production out of that position will not lose you your matchup either. Also a viable option in two-quarterback or superflex leagues.
Deep League Streamer- a player who could fill a void at a position in a deeper league. Their ceiling may be close to average point production at the position but their floor is enough to get through the week. A reasonable player to have in your lineup in two-quarterback or superflex leagues.
Leave on the Bench- a player who should be avoided in all lineups that week. Many times this player could even be left on waivers.

Possible Changes that can occur before Sunday

QB2 Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams

Matthew Stafford missed practice Wednesday with a back injury. If this issue was to hold Stafford out of this week’s game against the Tennessee Titans John Wolford would slot in at QB19 between Jordan Love and Teddy Bridgewater.

QB3 Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals

After last Thursday’s game against the Green Bay Packers, it was reported that Kyler Murray suffered an ankle sprain. The report is that this injury is expected to linger for the next 1-3 weeks. Murray could play through it. But if Arizona decides to rest Murray Colt McCoy would join the list as QB20 between Teddy Bridgewater and Jimmy Garoppolo.

QB6 Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys

On the last play of the game against the New England Patriots three weeks ago Dak Prescott had strained his calf. After the bye week, it appears that Prescott sat out Sunday night football against the Minnesota Vikings after participating in pregame warmups. If Prescott cannot play against the Denver Broncos then Cooper Rush would start for Dallas and slot in at QB22 between Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Ryan.

QB7 Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers

Justin Herbert was limited in practice Wednesday with a right-hand injury. If this injury were to hold Herbert out of this week’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles Chase Daniel would slot in at QB25 between Baker Mayfield and Mac Jones.

QB14 Taysom Hill, New Orleans Saints

Swiss army knife offensive weapon Taysom Hill left Week 5 with a concussion. There is now a lot of uncertainty on who will be the New Orleans Saints starting quarterback now that Jameis Winston is out for the season with a torn ACL. If Hill is inactive then Trevor Siemian would move up to QB18 between Tyrod Taylor and Mike White

QB17 Tyrod Taylor, Houston Texans

The belief in Houston is that quarterback Tyrod Taylor is expected to return from Injured Reserve this week. He sat out this past week against the Los Angeles Rams. If Taylor is still out another week then Davis Mills would slot in at QB19 between Mike White and Teddy Bridgewater.

QB27 Sam Darnold, Carolina Panthers

Last week against the Atlanta Falcons Sam Darnold suffered a concussion. It is uncertain whether he will be able to play against the New England Patriots this week or not. If Darnold is unable to play then P.J. Walker would slot in at QB28 this week between Trevor Lawrence and Trey Lance.
