Before setting your Week 9 Fantasy football lineups, you need to see what SportsLine's advanced computer model has to say. When it comes to ranking players, the model beat human experts in Fantasy football last season when there were big differences in ranking. And the model was closest-to-the-hole overall, meaning it best pinpointed where every player would finish each week. That could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.

Last week, the model was extremely high on Colts RB Marlon Mack, saying he'd finish as a top 10 running back. The result? Mack exploded for 132 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge week.

Now the model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has revealed its latest Week 9 Fantasy football rankings.

One player the model loves this week: Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith, who has replaced Ted Ginn as the primary deep threat in New Orleans. This week, Smith faces a Rams secondary that has given up five pass plays of at least 39 yards this season. The model says he's a rock solid WR3 with sky-high upside.

And a massive shocker: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger stumbles big-time this week against the Ravens and finishes outside the top 20. He's a player to bench in Week 9.

The model is also calling for a surprising quarterback you aren't even thinking about to finish in the top 10 of the rankings. This pick could be the difference between winning BIG and going home with nothing. You absolutely need to see it before you lock in your lineups.

So who should you sit and start this week? And where does every player stack up?... Join SportsLine right now to get Fantasy football rankings for every single position, and see which shocking QB finishes in the top 10 this week, all from the model that out-performed experts big time last season!
