Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 9 31946253 Sit - Scott Chandler Sit+-+Scott+Chandler Fantasy Football

The Chiefs defense has been great in 2013. Not only does this defense allow an NFL-best 12.3 points per game to opponents, but they also haven’t allowed a touchdown to opposing tight ends. That doesn’t bode well for Scott Chandler of the Bills. With Julius Thomas and Vernon Davis on bye, owners could be scrounging for options. I’d recommend Tim Wright, Dallas Clark, and Kyle Rudolph (other than Jermaine Gresham). – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 9 31946254 Sit - Marvin Jones Sit+-+Marvin+Jones Fantasy Football

I understand the attraction fantasy football owners will have with Marvin Jones when the waiver wire comes into play on Wednesday. He has scored six touchdowns in the last three games (four in one game helps) and tallied 122 receiving yards against the Jets. However, with the Bengals on a short rest and facing a Dolphins’ secondary that has allowed an average of 14.5 fantasy points per game to opposing receivers (fourth-best), I would only consider Jones in the deeper leagues. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 9 31947166 Sit - Alfred Morris Sit+-+Alfred+Morris Fantasy Football

Last week, I received the “Alfred Morris or Roy Helu?” question multiple times. With each response, I went with Morris because of I’d rather have the running back with the carries as opposed to the guy who gets the goal line (or passing game) opportunities. It paid off as AlMo rushed for 93 yards and a TD. However, he goes from facing the best rushing defense statistically to the best ground D from a fantasy standpoint. Though the Chargers have allowed two rushing touchdowns this season, none have been to opposing running backs (Michael Vick and Jake Locker). – Adam Meyer

Geoff Burke - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/10/29/102913-FANTASY-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G8_20131029133912672_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/10/29/102913-FANTASY-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G8_20131029133912672_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 9 31946251 Sit - Pierre Thomas Sit+-+Pierre+Thomas Fantasy Football

Though the Bills allowed an average of 117.8 rushing yards this season, the Saints couldn’t move the ball on the ground last Sunday. Pierre Thomas carried the ball 14 times for 65 yards (an impressive 4.6 yards per attempt), but is still without a rushing touchdown this season. Next on the schedule are the Jets, with the best rushing defense in the league (77.9 yards per game). – Adam Meyer

Matt Marton - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/10/29/102913-FANTASY-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G7_20131029133913673_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/10/29/102913-FANTASY-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G7_20131029133913673_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 9 31946252 Sit - Matt Ryan Sit+-+Matt+Ryan Fantasy Football

Let’s cut to the chase, Matt Ryan had a bad start last week, and I don’t see his stock improving for Week 9. His Falcons will fly to Carolina to face a defense that has only allowed six passing TDs, second-fewest in the league. It’s clear that Ryan is struggling with the lack of a running game and missing his top two receivers. Unless you are in a deep league where the options are scarce, I would consider other quarterbacks for this week (Terrelle Pryor, Alex Smith, and Andy Dalton…off the top of my head). – Adam Meyer

Matt Kartozian - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/10/29/102913-FANTASY-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G6_20131029133912671_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/10/29/102913-FANTASY-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G6_20131029133912671_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 9 31946245 Start - Jermaine Gresham Start+-+Jermaine+Gresham Fantasy Football

While the Dolphins are solid against opposing receivers (you’ll read more about that later in the gallery), they aren’t as successful against tight ends. This season, Miami has allowed almost a touchdown per game to opposing TEs (0.86) and averaged 11.1 fantasy points (second-most). Jermaine Gresham has split time with teammate Tyler Eifert, but has scored more fantasy points and received six more catches. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 9 31946246 Start - Denarius Moore Start+-+Denarius+Moore Fantasy Football

Previously, I mentioned that Terrelle Pryor is a decent option and now I look to his receiving options. Denarius Moore has been targeted 22 times in the last three weeks for the Raiders, six more times than his teammate Rod Streater. This week, Moore gets a far easier secondary against the Eagles on Sunday. Philadelphia has the 31st-ranked passing defense, while the Steelers own the second-best passing D. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 9 31946244 Start - Chargers' RBs Start+-+Chargers%27+RBs Fantasy Football

Those owners who struggled last week with the Chargers off will welcome both Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead with open arms this Sunday against Washington. The Redskins rushing defenses has allowed an average of 123.4 yards on the ground per game with 10 total TDs. Denver and the high-powered passing offense even had a successful day on the ground, 107 rushing yards and a touchdown. – Adam Meyer

Christopher Hanewinckel - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/10/29/102913-FANTASY-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G3_20131029133740655_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/10/29/102913-FANTASY-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G3_20131029133740655_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 9 31946243 Start - Chris Johnson Start+-+Chris+Johnson Fantasy Football

For those who have been disappointed with the productivity of Chris Johnson this season, this week could help ease the pain. Coming off of a bye, his Titans head to St. Louis to face a rushing defense that has allowed 126.4 yards per game. On Week 7, Johnson caught four balls for 71 yards and a TD against San Francisco. That was his second touchdown in the past three games (Seattle was that third game). – Adam Meyer

Don McPeak - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/10/29/102913-FANTASY-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G2_20131029133740657_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/10/29/102913-FANTASY-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G2_20131029133740657_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 9 31946247 Start - Terrelle Pryor Start+-+Terrelle+Pryor Fantasy Football

No, it wasn’t a glitch in your fantasy football Gametrax, Terrelle Pryor ran for a 93-yard touchdown right out of the gates against Pittsburgh last Sunday. However, he was basically shutdown after the opening play, passing for 87 yards while being picked off twice. Double however, Pryor’s team hosts Philadelphia this week. The Eagles have allowed an average of 302 passing yards per game (31st-ranked) and 14 touchdowns through the air. – Adam Meyer
