Week 9 Live Blog

Sunday, November 5, 2017


The games haven't even started yet and the football Sunday has already been wild. Two of the game's top stars, TE Zach Ertz and RB Leonard Fournette were surprisingly declared OUT, leaving fantasy owners to scramble for replacement. We'll be watching for how their respective replacements, TE Trey Burton and RBs T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory perform today.

 

(7:38PM) QB Russell Wilson's Hail Mary attempt fell just short and the Redskins escape with an impressive win over the streaking Seahawks and that will end another week of the Live Blog. Enjoy the final two games of the week and good lukck in all of your fantasy matchups.

 

(7:26PM) Redskins QB Kirk Cousins made some excellent throws and RB Rob Kelley finished the drive with his second touchdown of the day to give Washington the lead over Seattle with under one minute left. 

 

(7:18PM) After struggling all day, QB Russell Wilson caught fire in the fourth quarter and completed a pair of passes to wide open players, TE Jimmy Graham and then WR Doug Baldwin for a touchdown. Seattle now leads 14-10 with under two minutes remaining. Wilson has 260 passing yards and two scores, while Baldwin now has a 7/108/1 line. 

 

(7:09PM) After the dust was settled following the fight between the Cardinals and 49ers, penalites were handed out and San Francisco RB Carlos Hyde was ejected. Hyde finishes with 125 scoreless yards. 

 

(7:05PM) The bad news is I missed an earlier touchdown from 49ers QB CJ Beathard. The good news is none of you started Beathard anyway. The Cardinals lead 17-10 and Beathard just took a nasty late hit which ignighted yet another brawl, the third in the NFL today. 

 

(6:53PM) With star WR Dez Bryant out of the lineup after being banged up with an apprarent leg injury, QB Dak Prescott hit WR Cole Beasley for his second touchdown catch of the day, extending the Dallas lead to 28-17 midway through the fourth quarter. Bryant has a 6/73 line, while Beasley is up to 4/24/2. 

 

(6:51PM) Following review, the Seahawks touchdown was reversed as QB Kirk Cousins was ruled down. So, he took the sack, but no fumble or score. The Skins are punting to Seattle. 

 

(6:49PM) That turnaround didn't take long. The Seattle defense swarmed Redskins QB Kirk Cousins and then sacked, forced fumble, recovered and returned for a touchdown. The play is under review, but if it stands, the Seahawks have the lead. 

 

(6:45PM) The Seahawks offense finally work up as QB Russell Wilson ended a productive drive with a ten-yard touchdown pass to TE Luke Willson. Seattle, down 10-8 after the score, went for two, but Wilson's pass was intercepted and nearly returned by Washington. Wilson has just 193 passing yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. 

 

(6:30PM) The Cowboys have regained the lead in one of the better games of the day. Dallas finished off an extended drive with a short rushing score from RB Ezekiel Elliott, who has 70 rushing yards in the game. 

 

(6:28PM) Let's check in on the late games...the Cardinals continue to lead the 49ers, 14-10. Veteran RB Adrian Peterson has 107 rushing yards, while WR Larry Fitzgerald has posted a 5/70 line. With WR Pierre Garcon out for the season, RB Carlos Hyde is the top option in the 49ers offense and has 95 scoreless yards on the day. 

 

(6:14PM) After halftime, the Chiefs comeback is complete as they now lead in Dallas. Kansas City opened the second session with a long drive resulting in a short touchdown pass to TE Travis Kelce, who then won a potato sack race as a celebration. KC now leads 17-14.

 

(5:50PM) The Chiefs ended the half in the right way as QB Alex Smith hit WR Tyreek Hill for a short pass and TyFreak did the rest, juking anf jiving for a 57-yard score to close the gap to just four points. That was Hill's first reception of the game.

 

(5:45PM) The Cowboys are intent on continuing the Chiefs losing streak and they lead 14-3 as halftime approaches. QB Dak Prescott put up the latest points for Dallas, rushing for a 10-yard touchdown. Most of the stars of this game are letting down fantasy players. RB Kareem Hunt has 23 yards on nine touches, TE Travis Kelce has a 2/35 line. RB Ezekiel Elliott, potentially playing in his final game before his suspension kicks in, has only 39 rushing yards at the half. WR Dez Bryant has four catches for 47 yards.
