Ryan Fitzpatrick, Zach Pascal, and Noah Fant all had productive games in Week 9.

As we do after each week of NFL action, let’s take a look at the Week 9 performers who had productive games but weren’t owned by many fantasy football players.

Every week, one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end will be highlighted. In order to be eligible for inclusion, the player must have been owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN fantasy football leagues.

1

Quarterback - Ryan Fitzpatrick, Dolphins (288 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, 2 rushing yards)

Starting the last three games for Miami, Fitzpatrick has accounted for multiple touchdowns in each of the last three games. His three touchdown throws were his most since he threw for four in Week 9 of last season.

2

Running back - J.D. McKissic, Lions (32 rushing yards, 3 receptions, 40 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown)

With Kerryon Johnson (and Tra Carson) both recently placed on IR, there has been a much greater opportunity for McKissic to make an impact. His 26-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter on Sunday was his first time reaching the end zone this season.
