Week 9 is here everyone — and that means it's time to make start/sit decisions that could directly impact your playoff outlook this season.

With the weeks becoming more important, my content flow is changing a bit from here on out. These initial tiers on Tuesdays are going to be sharper with a bigger focus on my projections, but without write ups explaining them.

Please consider these initial tiers as recommendations for how to address Thursday Night Football start/sit decisions and a rough guide to plan for Sunday and Monday calls.

My updated tiers will continue to drop on Saturdays to give you ample time to prepare for those decisions, alongside providing more detailed analysis then.

For some more specific TNF fantasy advice, you can check out my specific Jets-Colts start/sit breakdown here.

And as always, you can see my real-time rankings at any point of the week here.
