NFL: New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins
Jasen Vinlove / USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Week 9 of the Fantasy Football season where COVID-19 concerns are growing, a former AAF star quarterback Garrett Gilbert could start for the Cowboys, and Antonio Brown is back. I would be lying if I said I wasn't giddy to watch Brown play football again. You're talking about a generational wide receiver who took the torch from Calvin Johnson and ran with it.

Brown's average season from 2013-2018 was 114 receptions, 1,524 yards and 11 touchdowns. I know what you're thinking. That was a long time ago. Does Brown still "have it"?

Well let's take a closer look at the last game Brown played, which was also with Tom Brady. In Week 2 last season, Brown led the Patriots in receiving with 4-56-1 on a team-high eight targets. Mind you, Julian Edelman – Brady's best buddy – was also active for that game. Now what if I told you that Brown did all of that while playing just 33% of the snaps and running 17 routes on 36 dropbacks? Basically, I still think Brown is extremely talented and – while it was just one game – Brady clearly liked throwing to him. Brown will make his 2020 debut this week against the Saints, a defense that has given up seven touchdowns to wide receivers over the past three games. On top of that, it's a nationally televised game, Mike Evans has struggled against the Saints in his career, and Chris Godwin could be limited. It might sound crazy, but Brown is a top-24 wide receiver for me this week.

Below you'll find the rest of my thoughts on each game this week, with injuries, stats and more on every Fantasy relevant player.

Hey, how about that TNF game! We'll review and give our big Fantasy takeaways and get into the big news (7:32) on Drew Brees, Ezekiel Elliott, Seahawks RBs  on the Fantasy Football Today podcast. Follow all of our podcasts and subscribe here
