Week 9 Preview: Trade deadline moves and how to fight fantasy fatigue

Week 9 is here, and with it, a familiar feeling of fatigue might be setting in. At this point in the season, most players have a clear (or at least, clearer) idea about where they stand. You're either sitting pretty, in the playoff hunt, or already thinking about next year. If you're out of the running, you might feel tempted to sit the next few weeks out. To just go through the motions. Maybe even quit!


Never fear though — on this week’s podcast episode, our experts will help you fight that fatigue to finish your 2018 fantasy season strong! (17:15)


Along with those therapeutic musings, our experts also break down all the biggest Week 9 happenings. These of course include the wild moves at the trade deadline: Demaryius Thomas to the Texas, Golden Tate to the Eagles, and more (and lest we forget, Fitzmagic is real, people). (01:00)


Our experts then share the bench players that fantasy owners are being forced to start in this bye-heavy week. Yes, people have had no choice but to start Nathan Peterman. This is happening. (25:40)


Of course, we can’t forget about Andy and Brad going at it over their Week 9 rankings. They have some very different opinions on Philip Rivers and Geronimo Allison this week! (31:45)


Liz and Matt then wrap up with a couple bargains and fades for Yahoo Daily Fantasy. (41:40)
