Fantasy Football Start 'Em, Sit 'Em week 9
Sunday November 2nd, 2014

Week 9 is one of the toughest bye weeks for fantasy football owners, with six teams (Falcons, Bills, Bears, Lions, Packers and Titans) on byes, and injuries aren't making it any easier.

Tony Romo kept his owners on edge all week, saying it was a gametime decision whether or not he would start against the one-loss Cardinals in Week 9. But following the news that he fractured two transverse processes in his back, Romo will sit against Arizona, with Brandon Weeden starting in his place.

Romo's not the only player with fantasy implications who's not starting this week. Banged-up Bengals RB Giovani Bernard will be sitting out against the Jaguars, while Bucs RB Doug Martin is doubtful against the Browns. Bengals WR A.J. Green will be starting for the first time in three weeks today, but 

If you're scrambling to pick a replacement for Romo or deciding whether or not to start Green, come chat with SI's Michael Beller, who's here to provide advice and answer any questions you may have leading up to Sunday's action.
