Week 9 brings back the Houston Texans and Arian Foster from a bye week, and he lands right on top of my RB rankings in our weekly Start/Sit column. A.J. Green is another well-rested guy at the top of his position. But if you have those guys, you know to start him week in and week out. What about Kenny Britt? Kyle Rudolph? If you need help filling out the lineup card this week, continue reading.

Michael Vick. If Andy’s sticking with him, he’s a must-use in a great matchup with a terrible Saints defense.
Rashad Jennings. He went nowhere last week, but his workload begs him to stay in fantasy lineups moving forward.
Jonathan Stewart. He’s still the bell-cow, and picking up yards will be much easier against Washington than in Week 8.
Santana Moss. The absence of Pierre Garcon has made Moss a viable WR3 most weeks, including against CAR.
Cecil Shorts. He’s locked into Jacksonville’s starting lineup, so we should ride him while he’s hot, esp. as a flex.
Kyle Rudolph. I’m sticking with my guy Rudolph, as his targets should pick up after two slow weeks.
Broncos Defense. They were outstanding against the Saints, but they’ve been sneaky-good all year.
Josh Freeman. He’s been good for us for a few weeks, but for some reason, I don’t trust him in this road game.
Felix Jones. Even if he’s the “feature” back for another week with Murray out, he’s lost my faith with a 3.4 YPC.
LaRod Stephens-Howling. LSH was completely shut down by SF (no surprise), and I wouldn’t trust him here either.
Josh Gordon. He needs the deep TD to be effective, but I think the BAL pressure on Weeden won’t allow it.
Kenny Britt. The brittle Britt still isn’t at 100 percent, and I’m getting a little frustrated owning him at the halfway point.
Jermichael Finley. Last week felt like a potential breakout to some — didn’t happen. Gotta show me something first.
Steelers Defense. PIT has a tough task ahead with the Giants, and I think they struggle despite a great Week 8.
