The fantasy football playoffs draw ever closer as Week 9 start/sit decisions loom large, and there’s no shortage of injury news to monitor.

I’m projecting Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins as if they will play through injury, but both are shaping up to be closer to doubtful. If you have either player, you need to start making backup plans.

Meanwhile, the 49ers, Jaguars, Bears and Panthers all have running back situations still up in the air.

With all that said, let’s run through the final edition of my Week 9 fantasy football tiers so we can optimize our teams for this week. And as always, a lot can change between writing on Saturday and kickoff, so be sure to check my updated rankings before making your final lineup decisions.
