Week 9 PPR Rankings

The NFL Trade Deadline came and went this week, and a couple huge moves have shaken the fantasy landscape for the remainder of the season. So, for this week’s intro, I thought I would give a quick stock up/down report for the two traded players and their potential replacements.

Demaryius Thomas’ stock is up slightly after being traded to the Texans, as Deshaun Watson is a major upgrade from Case Keenum. Thomas will be a direct replacement for Will Fuller, who tore his ACL last week and will miss the remainder of the season.

Golden Tate will find it difficult to replicate the production he enjoyed in Detroit with his new team, the Eagles. There is simply more competition for targets in the Philly offense. Tate should be regarded as a high-end WR3 going forward.

 

Players who will benefit the most from Thomas and Tate being traded:

 

Courtland Sutton: WR4 for the remainder of the season. Should be rostered in all leagues.

DaeSean Hamilton: Speculative add in deep leagues.

Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones: both fringe WR1 candidates with large target shares.

 

Players who will be hurt by the trades of Thomas and Tate:

 

Eagles pass catchers: Alshon Jeffery, Zach Ertz, and Nelson Agholor will see slight reductions in targets. Jordan Matthews has been rendered irrelevant with the acquisition of Tate, and should not be rostered.

 

Now, on to this week’s rankings.
