Fantasy Football Week 9 Automated Insights Recap


12 team half PPR Yahoo league - 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 W/R/T, 1 K, 1 DST

The Arizona Cardinals traded for Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake ahead of a Thursday Night Football matchup against the league's best team, the San Francisco 49ers. It makes all the sense in the world why he was only started by 27% of Yahoo Fantasy Football owners. However, he did rush for 110 yards, one touchdown and added 52 yards through the air on four receptions. Don’t blame yourself if you left him on your bench.

Buffalo Bills rookie RB Devin Singletary finally saw the majority of touches, rushing for 85 yards, a touchdown and 45 receiving yards. Expect this to be the norm moving forward and he will be started by more than 36% of Fantasy owners in each week from here on out.
