Week 9 Bye Teams: Detroit, Minnesota, Carolina, Jacksonville
Adrian Peterson owners are hitting the week they dreaded. AP is on a bye this week, as well as the duo of DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, and Maurice Jones-Drew. Who looks likely to have a good week from the running back position?
Our partner, numberfire.com, has provided us with projections for 30 top-rated running backs in Week 9. They determine their projections by feeding the stats and matchups into the computer, and the computer responds with its best estimate.
These projections are live and may change before Sunday's action. Come back over the next few days until game time to see where your players stand.
There are plenty of injuries at running back in addition to the players on a bye this week. That's sure to cause some scrambling for owners in fantasy. Keep on top of the injury situation here. Some prominent players who have an unclear status for this weekend include Peyton Hillis, Darren McFadden, Ahmad Bradshaw, Ryan Matthews, and Mike Tolbert. We'll still project them until they are definitely removed from playing status.
* Fantasy Points Projections are based on the Yahoo! and ESPN default scoring settings. Quarterbacks are scored with 1 point for every 25 passing yards, and 4 points for every touchdown. For running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, they are scored with 1 point for every 10 total yards, and 6 points for every touchdown. This is a non-PPR projection.
Injured players appear on the list, this is their projection IF they play.
