Listed here are a few of my favourite gamers in this week’s rankings:

TOP SHELF

Dalvin Prepare dinner is coming off a ridiculous Week Eight efficiency, which featured greater than 120 yards from scrimmage and 4 touchdowns. He shouldn’t depart your lineup for the remainder of the season, because the Minnesota Vikings already had their bye week.

Prepare dinner is my high running back for Week 9. The Vikings are set to host a Detroit Lions crew that has allowed the second-most fantasy factors per recreation to running backs. Prepare dinner is poised for an additional dominant outing.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner is my No. 2 possibility for Week 9. Conner scored for the fifth time in six weeks in Week Eight and may proceed to obtain quite a lot of work this week when the Steelers battle a Dallas Cowboys protection that has allowed probably the most dashing yards in the NFL.

I anticipate Conner to pile up at the very least 100 yards from scrimmage and a rating on Sunday in Arlington, Texas.

SNEAKY PLAYS

Chase Edmonds of the Arizona Cardinals lands at No. 6 in my Week 9 running back rankings. Edmonds had a season-high 145 yards from scrimmage on 13 touches in Week 7 earlier than his crew’s Week Eight bye.

I anticipate one other stable efficiency from Edmonds in Week 9 when the Cardinals host a Miami Dolphins protection that has allowed the 10th-most fantasy factors per recreation to running backs. Edmonds ought to provide you with an enormous benefit over your opponent from the running back slot his week.

Houston Texans running back David Johnson is my No. 9 play for Week 9. Johnson had 84 yards from scrimmage and a rating in Week 7 earlier than the Texans Week Eight bye.

He must be recent and have one other nice outing in Week 9, when the Texans battle a Jacksonville Jaguars protection that has allowed the sixth-most fantasy factors to running backs.

Johnson is a low-end RB1 for Week 9.

LONGSHOTS

Jacksonville Jaguars running back James Robinson will face David Johnson’s Houston Texans in Week 9. Robinson had a season-high 119 dashing yards and scored twice in Week 7 earlier than the Jaguars Week Eight bye.

He ought to discover loads of room to run wild once more in Week 9, when the Jaguars battle a Texans unit that has allowed the third-most fantasy factors per recreation to running backs. Robinson is my No. 13 possibility this week and is a good RB2 or flex play.

Los Angeles Chargers running back Justin Jackson lands at No. 15 in my Week 9 rankings. Jackson piled up a season-high 142 yards from scrimmage on 20 touches in Week 8.

I believe he can have one other nice day on Sunday when the Chargers host a Las Vegas Raiders crew that has allowed the fifth-most fantasy factors per recreation to running backs.

Jackson has but to attain this season, however has been focused lots in the passing recreation, which provides to his worth. He’s a matchup-based RB2 till Chargers beginning running back Austin Ekeler returns from his knee harm.
