Weve missed McCaffrey and Thomas as Fantasy players, and its excellent to have them back. Now, its time for them to assist lead you to a Fantasy champion.
Edmonds has four video games this season with at least 8 overall touches, and hes scored at least 12 PPR points in all of them. And last year, Edmonds had four games with at least seven overall touches, and he scored at least 14 PPR points in three of them.
We stated prior to the season that Chase Edmonds might be one of the very best lottery tickets if Kenyan Drake ever missed out on whenever, and thats where things stand heading into Week 9. Drake is out with an ankle injury, and Edmonds is anticipated to begin against the Dolphins. It must be a great game for the third-year running back from Fordham.
Costs (vs. SEA): The Bills DST was a disappointment in Week 8 against New England and has actually carried out improperly in every video game besides the two conferences with the Jets this year. Seattle is averaging 34.3 points per video game, and the Seahawks have just seven turnovers on the season.
Christian McCaffrey and Michael Thomas are expected to return to action, and it will be terrific to plug them back into our beginning lineups. McCaffrey, who has been out because Week 2 with an ankle injury, will hopefully pick up where he ended before getting hurt.
Miami has actually just permitted 3 running backs to score at least 14 PPR points this season with James Robinson in Week 3, Chris Carson in Week 4 and Raheem Mostert in Week 5, but the Dolphins other games were against New England, Buffalo, the Jets and Rams. None of those groups have a standout running back aside from maybe Darrell Henderson, who hurt his thigh at Miami in Week 8.

Im relying on Edmonds to love his increased workload this week, and the Cardinals are coming off a bye, while the Dolphins need to make a long trip. This is the minute weve been awaiting with Edmonds, and Im positive hes going to provide.
Now, the match against the Dolphins will not be easy. Miami has actually just enabled 3 running backs to score at least 14 PPR points this season with James Robinson in Week 3, Chris Carson in Week 4 and Raheem Mostert in Week 5, but the Dolphins other games were versus New England, Buffalo, the Jets and Rams. None of those groups have a standout running back aside from possibly Darrell Henderson, who injured his thigh at Miami in Week 8.
Well see how he does on the roadway at Tampa Bay in a likely match versus cornerback Carlton Davis, but Thomas must stay a starter in all leagues. And its likely Drew Brees will lean on Thomas a fair bit in Week 9 and progressing.
Weve handled a lot of injuries in this Fantasy football season, along with gamers being impacted by COVID-19. Its been irritating for Fantasy managers, but lets focus on the favorable for Week 9. Lets talk about 2 prominent players returning to play today– a minimum of thats the hope.
Washington (vs. NYG): The Washington Football Team had one sack and an interception against Daniel Jones in Week 6 and held the Giants to 20 points. Thats the only video game where Jones hasnt been sacked numerous times, and has at least one turnover in every video game this year. Washington, meanwhile, enters into this game with an interception in four games in a row.
The very same chooses Thomas, who has actually been out considering that injuring his ankle in Week 1. He likewise had a one-game suspension from the Saints for punching a colleague, and then he missed several weeks with a hamstring injury. When healthy, Thomas could be the No. 1 Fantasy receiver in all leagues like he remained in 2019, and it will be excellent for the Saints– and Fantasy managers– to have him back.
If the Cardinals are wise, they will just utilize Edmonds in every aspect of the game, and he could be a top-three Fantasy running back this week.
Hes been terrific in the passing game with at least three catches in 5 trips, consisting of 3 games with a minimum of five receptions. The hope is the Cardinals continue to toss to Edmonds, which is something they didnt do often with Drake, who only has 7 catches on the season. If the Cardinals are wise, they will simply utilize Edmonds in every element of the video game, and he could be a top-three Fantasy running back this week.
In his very first 2 video games this season, McCaffrey averaged 25.0 PPR points. Mike Davis did well as McCaffreys replacement, scoring at least 21 PPR points in three of six games, but theres a reason hes the understudy.
Its been annoying for Fantasy managers, but lets focus on the favorable for Week 9. Lets talk about 2 popular players coming back to play this week– at least thats the hope.
McCaffrey will not have it simple versus the Chiefs on the road in Week 9, but no defense is keeping McCaffrey out of your Fantasy lineup. Hes back, and hopefully hes here to stay.
Cardinals (vs. MIA): Tua Tagovailoa was sacked when, fumbled as soon as and passed for simply 93 backyards in his first start in your home last week. The Dolphins are down Myles Gaskin (knee), and the Cardinals are coming off a bye in your home. Its a great setup for the Cardinals DST in Week 9.
Giants (at WAS): The Giants DST scored a touchdown, had 3 sacks and an interception against the Washington Football Team in Week 6 and permitted simply 19 points. Lets see if that can happen once again.
Texans (at JAC): Jake Luton is making his very first NFL start, which might cause some sacks and turnovers versus a Texans group coming off their bye.
