ROS Rankings Heading into Week 9

ROS Rankings LogoOne of the most exciting yet frustrating aspects of fantasy football is the volatility from week to week. Injuries, depth chart changes, underachievers and breakout players dictate the pace of each game and more significantly, the entire season.

Each year it seems as though more and more top draft picks don’t pan out, i.e. DeAndre Hopkins and Allen Robinson. Through more tears than blood or sweat, adjusting to all this turmoil is where championships are won and legends are made.

Below are my rest of season ranking for QB, RB and WR heading into week 9, along with were they were ranked just one month ago so you can see how quickly the landscape can and has changed for some players.
