Week Nine Picks: QBs & RBs

Week nine of the NFL season is here, so let the fantasy football games begin on FantasyDraft!

Setting your lineup with the right quarterback or running back can mean the difference between finishing in the PayoutZone or the outside looking in. Therefore, I’m here to give some of the guys that I like at QB and RB this week.


Ben Roethlisberger vs. Oakland Raiders 

Yes, I saw Big Ben struggle in his return to the lineup against the Bengals last week, however he gets a better matchup this week versus Oakland. The Raiders have won 2 games in a row but still have the leagues 31st-ranked pass defense. Look for Pittsburgh to air-it-out against the Raiders.

Peyton Manning vs. Indianapolis Colts 

The bye seemed to work wonders for Peyton and the Broncos offense. Manning played his best game of the season against Green Bay, throwing for 340 yards. I believe Peyton is going to play better each week the rest of the way. By the way, this game could very well be Peyton’s last time ever playing in and against Indy, and I think he’ll be very motivated in this one. Not to mention the Colts rank 27th defending the pass.

Other: Eli Manning vs. Tampa Bay; Jameis Winston vs. NYG


Doug Martin vs. N.Y. Giants 

Martin has rushed for over 100 yards in 3 out the last 4 games. The Giants have been gashed their last 3 games on the ground, surrendering 153 yards per game. Martin is also the 4th-leading rusher in the NFL. You do the math.

Jeremy Hill vs. Cleveland Browns 

Start a running back against the 32nd-ranked run defense (Browns) every week! You should get a good return.

Others: Mark Ingram vs. Tennessee; Todd Gurley vs. Minnesota

London Fletcher

London Fletcher

London Fletcher is a former American football linebacker who played in the National Football League (NFL). Undrafted in 1998, he was signed by the St. Louis Rams as a rookie free agent and became a Super Bowl champion with the team. He was also a member of the Buffalo Bills, where he played for five seasons, and the Washington Redskins, where he played for seven seasons. Fletcher was well known for never missing a game in his career, being one of only four players in NFL history to play in over 250 consecutive games. Fletcher also holds the record for consecutive starts at the linebacker position. He eventually finished his career with 215 consecutive games started, which ties him for 6th all time along with Alan Page and Ronde Barber. London has agreed to be a writer and representative for the FantasyDraft brand and serves as an ambassador to the site. He has no more access to the site than the typical user.
