With week 9 upon us, other than the bye’s, there’s the looming trade deadline for most of your leagues. This is one of your last chances to get the roster you need to help finish the season strong. With so many injuries, relying on the waiver wire has become just to risky, there’s just not a whole lot left out there. Then if by chance you have any depth at any position, do you go after a trade, or hang on to what you have in case someone gets injured? I tend to be a trade to get better kind of guy, solidify every position you can to make your team as strong as possible. What ever you decide to do, here are the players that should be a good start, and a few that should sit for week 9.

Last Weeks Recap
Start’em “The Hits”
- “Big Ben” – Not as many yards throwing as I thought, but 3 TD’s makes up for that.
- Willis McGahee – The writing is on the wall, he may be a must start here on out. 122 yards rushing and 1 TD, not bad.
- Tony Romo – 4 INT’s aside, he still lit the Giants up, and came within a finger of pulling off the huge comeback. 437 yards passing, 1 rushing TD, and 1 throwing is pretty darn good.
Sit’em “The Hits”
- Cam Newton – Yes he got some yards, no TD’s and 2 INT’s, 1 that went for a pick 6!
- Mikel Leshoure – Detriot goes pass happy, and doesn’t run the ball. Leshoure only gets 46 yards rushing.
- Larry Fitzgerald – He was held in check all night by the 49ers, Fitz only manages 52 yardsÃ‚Â receiving.
Start’em “Just Short”
- Reggie Wayne – He had the receptions and yards, just no TD’s.
- Randall Cobb – Just the flip of Wayne, almost enough catches, but not enough yards, and 1 TD.
- Phillip Rivers – He is quickly becoming the most disappointing QB this year. Yes, more than Vick, the expectations for Rivers were higher.
- Frank Gore – Just when you think Gore is going to give you someÃ‚Â consistency he lays an egg.
- Brian Hartline – No heart jokes this time, just another bad outing for him. 4 catches for 41 yards doesn’t cut it.
- Alex Green – That’s three games in a row with 20 plus carries, and not a lot to show for it. Makes you wonder if Green has what it take to be a productive RB in this league.
