Fantasy Football Start 'Em Sit 'Em - NFL Week 9

Start 'Em

#1 - Zach Ertz, Arizona Cardinas vs. San Francisco 49ers

With the 2024 fantasy football season on the horizon, be sure to check out our free Fantasy Football Trade Analyzer & lock down your squad.

Zach Ertz upgraded his Fantasy Football value when he moved from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Arizona Cardinals. He has been solid in his short time with the team so far and could continue to increase his target share as he builds chemistry with Kyler Murray.

#2 - Dan Arnold, Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Buffalo Bills

Dan Arnold continues to build chemistry with quarterback Trevor Lawrence. The Jaguars should be playing from behind the entire game so their game script should feature a ton of passing plays.

#3 - Tyler Conklin, Minnesota Vikings vs. Baltimore Ravens

Tyler Conklin's stock is trending up in Fantasy Football. He is in a great matchup in Week 9 against the Baltimore Ravens' last ranked pass defense. He has Fantasy Football upside this week and is worth a shot.

Sit 'Em

#1 - Hunter Henry, New England Patriots vs. Carolina Panthers

Hunter Henry has been too inconsistent to trust in Fantasy Football. The Patriots spread the ball around too much in a lower scoring offense. Henry has been dependent on touchdowns for Fantasy Football points this season.

#2 - Cole Kmet, Chicago Bears vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Cole Kmet has been trending up in Fantasy Football but drew a very difficult matchup this week with the Steelers. Kmet is worth a stash for his increased role in the offense but is better off benched this week.

#3 - Evan Engram, New York Giants vs. Las Vegas Raiders

Evan Engram is one of the most frustrating tight ends. He flashes the talent to be an elite option but continues to be disappointing. He is rarely worth the risk in Fantasy Football.
