Mastersballer and MLB.com man, Zach Steinhorn grabbed the second week honors in Fout Wars. Clearly, that was not enough as Zach took Week 9 as well with 154.48 points, driven largely by Cowboys Tight End Jason Witten and his 30.4 points, with assists from Dak Prescott (23.88), Jordy Nelson (22.4) and DeMarco Murray (21.8).
@RotoBuzzGuy Howard Bender rode Mark Ingram's 34.1 points, coupled with 27.18 via Aaron Rodgers, 25.4 from Mike Wallace and Ezekiel Elliott's 22.7, to finish just four points shy with a completely different lineup, good for 150.68, while Mike Beller, who mixed and matched with Rodgers and Elliott along with Michael Thomas (24.3), finished third with 146.58.
Thanks to a zero point day from Derrick Henry and just 6.3 from Jarvis Landry, I fell to sixth with 136.42, but that was 11.04 points better than the great Jeff Boggis, who finished ninth with 125.38.

Week 9 DFS Plays
Carson Palmer ($6500): The Niners are just bad, and the Cardinals are just getting into a groove. Carson gets to play at home. Good luck with that, San Francisco.
Jonathan Stewart ($4900): Stewart has played pretty well since returning from injury, despite a slower game last week. This Sunday, the Panthers get to play at home, facing the Chiefs with a middling pass defense (#19). I am hoping Stewart returns to the form of two weeks ago, when he scored a couple of times as his team gets into a groove.
C.J. Fiedorowicz ($3500): The Texan Tight End scored his third touchdown on five catches of seven targets last week, and now gets to face the Jaguars and the #23 pass defense.
Cardinals ($3700): Once again, a good team facing the Niners, the team who has allowed 260 points, second worst to the Browns (273).
Jordy Nelson ($7500): Jordy appears to be back, and Tennessee is also middle-of-pack on pass defense. Look for the Rodgers/Nelson connection to take advantage.
