I would like to first wish everyone good spirits in lieu of Hurricane Sandy and say that I hope everyone out there is OK, and suffered little to no issues with this massive phenomena. The Week 9 WR rankings have two immediate concerns: Jordy Nelson of the Packers and DeSean Jackson of the Eagles. Jordy Nelson is dealing with a hamstring issue, but could’ve played last week according to coach McCarthy while Jackson is dealing with an ankle issue that isn’t as serious as immediately thought—both players are expected to play as of now, but if anything changes I will let you know here. Keep in mind that Kansas City and San Diego square off on Thursday Night, while Philadelphia and New Orleans square off Monday Night. New England, St. Louis, New York Jets and San Francisco are all on the bye week, so the WK 9 WR rankings will reflect this as usual. As always, you can brush up on all of your other rankings here. ONE VERY INTERESTING NOTE: The Lions acquired WR Mike Thomas from Jacksonville. While this does NOTHING for Thomas’ value, it certainly elevates Cecil Shorts’ value who is ranked 38th this week. And again, I’m only a fantasy football writer. But I really do hope everyone came out of this storm better than expected especially my partner in crime Greg Brosh who lives just an hour away from myself in Philadelphia. Now let’s get to some Week 9 WR rankings, shall we? Rank Player Name Team Vs. Comments 1 A.J. Green CIN vs DEN This game is going to be fantasy gold for WRs. 2 Demaryius Thomas DEN at CIN Seriously, so much potential in this game on both sides of the ball. 3 Brandon Marshall CHI at TEN The Bears may not NEED to pass much this week. 4 Victor Cruz NYG vs PIT   5 Percy Harvin MIN at SEA   6 Calvin Johnson DET at JAC Megatron is looking more like Star-Scream on a bad day these days. 7 Julio Jones ATL vs DAL I like Jones over White this week. 8 Roddy White ATL vs DAL   9 Vincent Jackson TB at OAK He'll rebound nicely this week, trust me. 10 Mike Wallace PIT at NYG   11 Eric Decker DEN at CIN   12 Andre Johnson HOU vs BUF Love the matchup here. 13 Reggie Wayne IND vs MIA   14 Steve Smith CAR at WAS   15 Larry Fitzgerald ARI at GB The Packers will try doubling Fitz up with Safety help. 16 Marques Colston NO vs PHI   17 Jeremy Maclin PHI at NO   18 Miles Austin DAL at ATL   19 Randall Cobb GB vs ARI Could hold more value if Nelson becomes limited. 20 Denarius Moore OAK vs TB Great Standard league option; not so much for PPR's. 21 Hakeem Nicks NYG vs PIT   22 Dez Bryant DAL at ATL   23 Jordy Nelson GB vs ARI He's day-to-day but seems to be a go. 17/243/4 in his last two. 24 DeSean Jackson PHI at NO Came back on the field last week, has an extra day to play. Jackson is very likely to play. 25 Lance Moore NO vs PHI He'll be the forgotten man on the field. 26 Antonio Brown PIT at NYG   27 James Jones GB vs ARI   28 Torrey Smith BAL at CLE   29 Titus Young DET at JAC Last week wasn't a fluke, expect similar numbers this week. 30 Steve Johnson BUF at HOU   31 Dwayne Bowe KC at SD   32 Brandon LaFell CAR at WAS A very nice sneaky play against one of the worst passing D's in the league. 33 Mike Williams TB at OAK   34 Brian Hartline MIA at IND   35 Darrius Heyward-Bey OAK vs TB   36 Anquan Boldin BAL at CLE   37 Josh Gordon CLE vs BAL   38 Cecil Shorts JAC vs DET Hottest waiver wire pick this week. 39 Malcom Floyd SD vs KC   40 Santana Moss WAS vs CAR   41 Andre Roberts ARI at GB   42 Sidney Rice SEA vs MIN   43 Kenny Britt TEN vs CHI Keep an eye on his health and status this week. 44 Davone Bess MIA at IND   45 Donnie Avery IND vs MIA Tough matchup here. 46 Nate Washington TEN vs CHI   47 Kendall Wright TEN vs CHI   48 Golden Tate SEA vs MIN Would rank Tate higher if it weren't for minny's pass rush. 49 Andrew Hawkins CIN vs DEN I like the matchup, especially with Binns being injured. 50 Ryan Broyles DET at JAC     Fantasy Football Be sure to check out other great articles at Fantasy Knuckleheads. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
