NFL Week 9 Booms & Busts by Logan Lepiscopo

NFL Week 9 Booms & Busts

By: Logan Lepiscopo

Week nine of the NFL season but changing the title here, rather than starts and sits we are going to start doing booms and busts. Essentially the same idea except instead of telling you to sit someone I am going to put them as a bust for the week meaning they won’t live up to their projection.  I am going to continue with this new approach of giving more players named because I feel that it gives you more players listed to decide on rather than just one player for each position. For the starts I am not going to name the obvious guys that start week in and week out, I am going to try to list some players that may be needed due to bye weeks and injuries. Without further ado let’s get into these last-minute starts and sits for week nine!
