Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 9 fantasy studs and duds 30341729 Dud – Chiefs DEF vs MIA Dud+%26ndash%3B+Chiefs+DEF+vs+MIA Fantasy Football

Much like Jonathan Baldwin, Kansas City’s defensive performance last week impressed fantasy owners enough to covet the unit for a Week 9 matchup against winless Miami. Well, all that glitters is not gold and all that seems like a stone cold fantasy lock is far from it as we learned following the Dolphins 31-point performance. That knocked the Chiefs DEF into the red where most owners finished with -1.0 fantasy points. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 9 fantasy studs and duds 30341733 Stud – Willis McGahee vs OAK Stud+%26ndash%3B+Willis+McGahee+vs+OAK Fantasy Football

Here’s a fun fact: McGahee has rushed for 100 or more yards in half of his games this season. His 163 yards on 20 carries and two touchdowns is his top fantasy day since Week 17 of the 2009 season when he rushed for 167 yards and three touchdowns against … the Raiders. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 9 fantasy studs and duds 30343137 Dud – Jon Baldwin vs MIA Dud+%26ndash%3B+Jon+Baldwin+vs+MIA Fantasy Football

The reason the picture to the left is of Baldwin against the Chargers is because the rookie, who was the fifth-most coveted waiver wire acquisition, had only one reception for 12 yards on Sunday. Steve Breaston reminded everybody that he’s the #2 receiver in KC with seven receptions for 115 yards. Look for the Baldwin buzz to cool off heading into Week 10. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 9 fantasy studs and duds 30343133 Stud – Vincent Jackson vs GB Stud+%26ndash%3B+Vincent+Jackson+vs+GB Fantasy Football

Owners that participated in our Sunday morning fantasy chat were ready to bench V-Jax. He reminded us all a knee-jerk reaction like that isn’t wise. He had over 100 receiving yards before the end of the first quarter. After 60 minutes of work he finished with seven receptions for 141 yards and three touchdowns. Turns out the 32 fantasy points were the best … of his career. Hope you started him. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 9 fantasy studs and duds 30341735 Dud – Colts WRs vs ATL Dud+%26ndash%3B+Colts+WRs+vs+ATL Fantasy Football

Despite falling into an early hole, Curtis Painter had an opportunity for some garbage points in the passing game. The Falcons’ pass defense ranked 23rd in the NFL and had allowed 266 pass yards per game. Instead, fantasy owners of Pierre Garcon, Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark were disappointed yet again. The trio … THE TRIO … finished with nine receptions for 77 yards. Painter eventually got pulled in favor of Dan Orlovsky. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 9 fantasy studs and duds 30341734 Stud – Julio Jones vs IND Stud+%26ndash%3B+Julio+Jones+vs+IND Fantasy Football

If Julio came up empty inside Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday, my inbox may have exploded. For the entire week leading up to the Falcons meeting with the Colts, I promoted, campaigned and rallied around the return of Jones. He was due to breakout, after averaging better than 80 receiving yards a game prior to a hamstring injury. Well, Jones did not disappoint with three receptions for 131 yards. The bulk of the stats came on touchdown receptions of 50 and 80 yards courtesy of Matt Ryan. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 9 fantasy studs and duds 30341738 Dud – Browns RB vs HOU Dud+%26ndash%3B+Browns+RB+vs+HOU Fantasy Football

It’s over in Cleveland. Do not expect Peyton Hillis to emerge as the fantasy back we all rooted for in 2010. The off-the-field melodrama involving the Madden cover boy will make you sick (with strep throat?) and his replacements are far from a fantasy commodity at this juncture. Montario Hardesty is still on the mend with a calf injury and Chris Ogbonnaya and Thomas Clayton combined for 38 yards on 18 carries with a fumble against Houston in Week 9. This offense is reeling. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 9 fantasy studs and duds 30343135 Stud – Roy Helu vs SF Stud+%26ndash%3B+Roy+Helu+vs+SF Fantasy Football

Mike Shanahan played his Jedi-mind tricks with fantasy owners about 90 minutes before kickoff when he announced Helu was going to start over Ryan Torain. As expected the Redskins rushing attack struggled against the Niners, but Helu pulled the WTF card on everybody by hauling in 14 receptions for 105 yards. He chipped in 41 yards on the ground. For those who gambled on the rookie out Nebraska enjoy it because Lord knows how Shanahan will use him next week. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 9 fantasy studs and duds 30336965 Dud – Tarvaris Jackson vs DAL Dud+%26ndash%3B+Tarvaris+Jackson+vs+DAL Fantasy Football

After throwing for 323 yards against the Bengals last weekend and because he’s known as quarterback who can run, some owners took a gamble on T-Jax this week. Well, Marshawn Lynch did the running in Week 9, while Jackson completed three passes to the Dallas Cowboys with no touchdowns on the day. Back to the waiver wire he shall go. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 9 fantasy studs and duds 30341732 Stud - Philip Rivers vs GB Stud+-+Philip+Rivers+vs+GB Fantasy Football

Joel Beall and I truly believe our Pedestal pep talk greatly impacted Philip Rivers at some point over the last 48 hours. True, the San Diego Chargers still lost, he threw three interceptions and looked awful early on in the game, but when a fantasy owner sees 385 passing yards and four touchdowns, Rivers is granted some leeway. In standard scoring leagues he netted around 34 points. – Ryan Fowler

Christopher Hanewinckel - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/11/06/110611-NFL-fantasy-gallery-2_20111106202115223_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/11/06/110611-NFL-fantasy-gallery-2_20111106202115223_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 9 fantasy studs and duds 30341731 Week 9 Studs and Duds Week+9+Studs+and+Duds+ Fantasy Football

The Indianapolis Colts are now on the clock thanks to Matt Moore’s near perfect day in Kansas City. The Dolphins’ quarterback finished 17 of 23 for 244 yards and three touchdown passes without any interceptions. But for those who think this is Moore’s first touchdown trifecta, he accomplished the same feat in back-to-back games with Carolina in 2009. – Ryan Fowler
