This is no time to be distracted the Randy Moss sideshow, gamers. Eyes on the goal. Let's be focused, like the resplendent fans above. You've got an imaginary match-up to win. FOCUS.
Six NFL teams have byes this week, so there are a few sketchy names in the ranks below. You've been warned. The Broncos, Titans, Rams, Niners, 'Skins and Jaguars are all vacationing. We can only rank players who are active, so please — please — don't ask me about Ed McCaffrey and Natrone Means. I'd love to rank them, obviously, but they can't contribute in Week 9.
OK, let's get to it. Everybody, one clap…
