Fantasy Football Week 9: Start’em / Sit’em

7 of 8

Wide Receiver

Jordan Matthews, @DAL (43%, 10) – The Yahoo projection system is still treating Matthews like its 2014, he hasn’t put up double-digit fantasy points since week 2 and is coming off a season low 14 yards in his last game. Matthews lack of production this year and a tough match-up verse a Cowboys secondary that has given up the 4th fewest fantasy points to WRs, are more than enough reasons for me to keep Matthews on the bench for the 2nd straight week.

Andre Johnson, DEN (37%, 8) – Coming off only his 2nd game all season with double-digit fantasy points, but don’t expect him to do it again against a tough Broncos secondary that is allowing the fewest fantasy points to WRs in the league. Johnson is old and appears to have lost a step or two since his prime with the Texans.

James Jones, @CAR (36%, 9) – He’s scored in two of the last three games but only has five catches total over three weeks and was only targeted twice last week. Jones’ value is almost completely touchdown dependent which makes him a risky play.

Mike Wallace, STL (29%, 7) – Was held without a catch last week and has been held under 40 yards for three games in a row. Not only would I not start Wallace this week, but I wouldn’t even keep him on your roster. He may catch a long TD pass or two before the end of the season, but the Vikes just don’t throw deep much and Wallace rarely catches it when they do.

Ted Ginn, GB (26%, 9) – Has two or less catches in three of his last four games and the worst catch percentage in the NFL (43.5%). Ginn gets a lot of targets as the Panthers de facto WR1, but who cares if he can’t catch them.
