Week 9 of the Fantasy football season brought a ton of new surprises, disappointments and questions that still need to be answered.
But before you try and separate fact from fiction after the ninth week of the NFL season, you need to see what SportsLine Fantasy analyst Davis Mattek has to say.
Mattek has been working in the Fantasy industry since his college days and has contributed to virtually every meaningful publication and website in the industry. He's hosted podcasts with over two million listens and been nominated for several FSWA awards, including Football Writer and Best Podcast.
Now, he's breaking down the action from Week 9 to see what has changed in the Fantasy landscape.
One thing we learned: Adrian Peterson holds no Fantasy value in a negative game script.
"One of the reasons that I never got on board with the Peterson draft hype train this offseason was that I was utterly sure that he was a zero or an outright negative in the passing game," Mattek said. "The team has third-down specialist Chris Thompson for that role anyway, though Thompson was not active for Week 9. Washington got blown out at home by a mediocre Falcons team and AP did absolutely nothing, getting only nine carries and despite the scoreline, only three targets. In games that Washington projects to lose, the only way AP is going to have Fantasy value is if he scores."
Mattek has also identified a player who is well on his way to becoming a Fantasy stud, and who it is may surprise you.
