Hue Jackson is out! Jameis Winston is benched! NFL Week 9 is off to a crazy start. Don’t let your Fantasy Football team miss a beat with our Fantasy Stock Watch.

First, who is new Browns OC Freddie Kitchen? We scoured the internet wide and far for any nugget on “The Chef.” Is there any reason to expect a Browns resurgence under the new staff?

Then, we recap all of Week 8’s Crucial Fantasy Risers and Fallers on our Fantasy Stock Watch. We cover key Risers, including Marlon Mack, Chris Carson, and the entire Cardinals Offense.

We also breakdown the need-to-know Fallers, featuring the Packers WRs not named Davante, David “Goose Egg” Njoku, and the new-look Bucs with the return of FitzMagic.

Plus, we preview the Week 9 Waiver Wire Penny Stocks to target. Listen to The Wolf’s take on DJ Moore (and his delicious remaining schedule), David Moore’s torrid scoring streak, and two widely-available, and sorely needed additions to the barren TE pool.

The perfect way to begin Fantasy Football Week 9 is packaging up Week 8 perfectly. The Fantasy Fullback Dive will clear that path wide open.

Get fully ready for Week 6 in Fantasy Football with another pulverizing lead block from The Fantasy Fullback Dive. First, we catch you up on all the LeSean McCoy - to - Eagles trade rumors, and what this could mean for his currently depressed fantasy value. We also chat Le’Veon Bell and if we buy these committee talks. Then, we hit the Trainer’s Room to check on the health of TY Hilton, Leonard Fournette, OJ Howard, Evan Engram, and Greg Olsen.

 

As always, we run through another round of Higher, Lower, and Hail Mary. Featured heavily is the Bucs / Falcons matchup and how Jameis Winston will use his explosive surrounding cast. We also discuss Tarik Cohen, Mitch Trubisky, and Taylor Gabriel and the Bears, and their likelihood of repeating their explosive Week 4 performance against a reeling Dolphins team (plus, which weapon do we NOT like and feel is grossly overvalued?) Find out why Josh Gordon’s long TD may have only been the beginning, and a potential explosion could be looming versus the awful Chiefs secondary.

A Trainer’s Room with crucial updates on: the Banged up Colts, Ezekiel Elliott’s knee and ankle, Joe Mixon’s Looming Return, the In-Shambles Packers WRs, and expectations for Devonta Freeman.

We then go into another position-by-position round of Higher, Lower, and Hail Mary.

Some questions tackled:

QBs: What can owners expect from Jared Goff after his Week 4 explosion? Can Russell Wilson keep pace? Is Drew Brees really 7 spots lower on The Wolf’s Week 7 Rankings?! Can Marcus Mariota keep the pedal to the medal?  

RBs: Has Matt Breida’s true breakout finally arrived? Is Carlos Hyde’s time running out? Can Alfred Morris plod into the end zone?

WRs: Where should Stefon Diggs rank against the generous Jalen Mills -- and how is Odell Beckham still higher in ECR? Can Tyreek Hill buck the Jaguars trend? Is Ryan Switzer the Hail Mary you never saw coming that could change your week?!

TEs: Will Vance “Bulldozing” McDonald continue to steam roll?  Is Nick Vannett a creature worth visiting?
