Now that we are past the midpoint of the regular season of the NFL, we are in the vital stretch of the season where championships remain in the horizon or never get closer for teams struggling as there’s just a month left before the playoffs start. Key teams on bye include Los Angeles Rams, New Orleans Saints, Cincinnati Bengals and Atlanta Falcons.

Seasoned fantasy players know about the studs and chalky plays so at Bruno Boys we try to help wade through the matchups on those tougher decisions, or point out when there’s a great matchup that you should go all-in on.

Still, we feel very strong about these recommendations and you should use them to help guide you to your starting lineup.

Here are your Week 9 Fantasy Football Quarterbacks to Start.

Gardner Minshew, Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Houston Texans

After two weeks of rough matchups, Minshew had a his best game of the season against the Jets, throwing a season-high three touchdowns. Now he’ll have his second go around with the Texans, who he last faced in Week 2 when they were a very different defense. They won’t have J.J. Watt this game as he was lost for the season with a torn pectoral muscle. They’ve surrendered at least three touchdowns through the air in four straight games. The back end of the Texans’ defense has played poorly all season long and they’ve picked off opposing quarterbacks only three times. Minshew is in for a big day that could land him in the top performances of Week 9.
