Week 9 started with the news that Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson suffered a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season. Obviously, this is horrible news for the entire Texans team. Watson's impact on fantasy is significant, as his absence hurts running back Lamar Miller and wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller. Also, the San Francisco 49ers announced wide receiver Pierre Garcon will miss the rest of the season with a neck injury.
On the field, the New York Jets crushed the Buffalo Bills, 34-21, on "Thursday Night Football," as Jets running back Matt Forte had two touchdowns (his first two of the year) and Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor lit it up in garbage time for what could be a top 10 quarterback performance.
Here are my Week 9 sleepers.
