MIAMI, Nov. 4 (UPI) — Joe Burrow and Josh Allen top my Week 9 delusion football quarterback rankings for 2021.

Patrick Mahomes, Matthew Stafford and Kyler Murray spherical out my High 5 alternatives for Week 9. Lamar Jackson, Justin Herbert, Kirk Cousins, Tua Tagovailoa and Dak Prescott also land in my High 10.

Tyrod Taylor is amongst the different quarterbacks I’d retain in mind starting in case you are traditional on the put.

Russell Wilson, Tom Brady, Jared Goff and Taylor Heinicke wants to be out of all lineups because the Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Detroit Lions and Washington Football Crew support Week 9 byes.

Inexperienced Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers must also be away from lineups because of his placement on the reserve/COVID-19 checklist.

Listed below are some of my accepted gamers in this week’s High 20 quarterback rankings:


Joe Burrow of the Cincinnati Bengals is No. 1 in my Week 9 quarterback rankings. Burrow threw as a minimum two touchdown passes in every of his first eight begins this season. He threw three touchdown tosses in every of his final three games.

I search recordsdata from the Bengals to dominate the Cleveland Browns on Sunday in Cincinnati. The Browns tied for allowing the third-most touchdown passes by eight weeks. In addition they allowed the sixth-most delusion functions per game to quarterbacks.

Take a look at up on Burrow to throw as a minimum three touchdown passes and eclipse 300 passing yards in this AFC North division matchup.

Josh Allen of the Buffalo Funds is the quit quarterback in delusion football this season, on a functions per game basis. He threw as a minimum two touchdown passes in six of his seven begins and eclipsed 300 passing yards in three of his previous 5 games. Allen also scored thrice on the ground over his final 5 games.

This week, he comes in as my No. 2 quarterback. The Funds face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday in Jacksonville, Fla.

The Jaguars allowed the seventh-most delusion functions per game to quarterbacks by seven games and unbiased correct allowed two passing ratings and a rushing touchdown to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith in Week 8.

I search recordsdata from Allen to throw as a minimum two touchdown passes and to trot for every other fetch.


The Kansas Metropolis Chiefs underwhelmed followers with their 4-4 originate to the season, but Patrick Mahomes will not be any longer playing as poorly as some critics judge, from delusion football perspective.

The Chiefs quarterback leads the NFL with 10 interceptions, but unruffled averages almost 300 passing yards per game and totaled 19 touchdown passes by eight begins.

I search recordsdata from Mahomes to file no doubt one of his handiest performances of the season Sunday when the Chiefs host the Inexperienced Bay Packers at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas Metropolis, Mo.

The Packers will play with out quarterback Aaron Rodgers, which must result in extra possessions for the potent Chiefs offense. While the Packers defense used to be loyal to originate the season, I manufacture no longer judge they’ll tackle the Chiefs’ assault with out the the relaxation on the sidelines afforded by long offensive possessions.

Take a look at up on Mahomes to throw for as a minimum 300 yards and secure the quit zone thrice in this matchup. He’s my No. 3 likelihood for Week 9.


Houston Texans quarterback Tyrod Taylor will return from shatter in Week 9 and originate against the Miami Dolphins.

Taylor presents ticket as a passer and a runner. He threw two touchdown passes in Week 1. He threw a touchdown go and ran for a fetch in Week 2. Taylor overlooked the Texans’ next six games, but can be in for a gigantic matchup if he’s full of life Sunday.

The Dolphins allowed basically the most passing yards and the third-most delusion functions per game to quarterbacks by eight weeks. Taylor is my No. 16 likelihood, but must handiest be started in case you are extremely determined on the put.
