QBRyan Fitzpatrick

Ryan Fitzpatrick

225 pass yards, pass TD, 2 INTs

After not throwing a touchdown pass in back-to-back games, Fitzpatrick threw for three scores against the Titans in Week 7. But the new Houston team is much better defensively than the old Houston team, making the Bills' quarterback an unwise start.

RBFred Jackson

Fred Jackson

65 rush yards, rush TD, 3 rec, 26 rec yards

Jackson has improved in fantasy play over each of his past three weeks. He's coming off a bye week, but he's going up against a Texans defense that is also coming off a bye week. Use him as an RB2 or flex in Week 9 even though the Texans haven't allowed a rushing touchdown so far.

RBC.J. Spiller

C.J. Spiller

55 rush yards, 2 rec, 25 rec yards

Spiller has 158 rushing yards, 10 catches, 54 receiving yards and one touchdown in his past two games. The Texans are a tough defense, but Spiller is explosive he can score on any touch. Use him as a flex play this week.

WRStevie Johnson

Stevie Johnson

6 rec, 65 yards, rec TD

In seven games this season, Johnson has registered more than 50 receiving yards in each and has scored a touchdown in four of them. The Texans have allowed 13 touchdown passes, so use Johnson as a WR2.

WRDonald Jones

Donald Jones

3 rec, 34 yards

Jones is the Bills' second-leading receiver this season, with 20 catches, 241 yards and three touchdowns. The Texans are tough defensively despite their 13 touchdown passes allowed, making Jones someone to avoid this week.

TEScott Chandler

Scott Chandler

3 rec, 22 yards

After scoring four touchdowns in his first four games, Chandler has no touchdowns on seven receptions and 59 yards in his last three games. Look elsewhere in Week 9, as the Texans host Chandler and the Bills.

KRian Lindell

Rian Lindell

2 PATs, 2 FGs

Lindell started the season with just one field goal in four games. But over the past three games he has four field goals and six extra points. Despite the improvement, he's still not a good fantasy kicker right now.

DEFENSE

INT, 3 Sacks

The Bills have seven sacks, two interceptions, a safety and a defensive score in their past two games. But in Week 9, they face the Texans and their stellar offense, so leave them on the waiver wire.

QBMatt Schaub

Matt Schaub

232 pass yards, 2 pass TDs, INT

Schaub has been a mild fantasy disappointment this season, but now he faces a Bills defense that has allowed 14 passing touchdowns. He's a solid fantasy starter in Week 9.

RBArian Foster

Arian Foster

114 rush yards, 2 rush TDs, 3 rec, 30 rec yards

While Foster has just three 100-yard rushing games, he does have nine rushing touchdowns in seven games. He's a must-start fantasy player against a Bills defense that is the worst in the NFL against the run.

RBBen Tate

Ben Tate

24 rush yards

Tate hasn't been as productive as in years past because he's dealing with a hamstring injury, but fantasy owners should still keep him on their rosters.

WRAndre Johnson

Andre Johnson

6 rec, 90 yards, rec TD

While Johnson has just two touchdown catches this season, he does have 17 catches for 161 yards in his past two games. The Bills' defense is below-average against the pass these days, so Johnson should do well in Week 9.

WRKevin Walter

Kevin Walter

3 rec, 35 yards, rec TD

Walter has 10 catches for 148 yards and a touchdown in his past three games. He faces the Bills' relatively bad pass defense in Week 9, which makes him a decent WR3 or flex player.

TEOwen Daniels

Owen Daniels

5 rec, 65 yards

Daniels had four touchdown catches in his past five games going into the Texans' bye week. While the Bills have allowed just one touchdown catch from a tight end, Daniels remains a great start in Week 9.

KShayne Graham

Shayne Graham

4 PATs, 2 FGs

While Graham has 13 field goals, his 25 extra points are even more impressive. He has kicked three or more extra points in six of seven games. Start him against the Bills.

DEFENSE

2 INTs, 3 Sacks

The Texans are one of the top fantasy defenses so far, and the unit is coming off one of its best outings of the season. The Bills have some weapons on offense, but the Texans should still do well.
