Which battles should be catching your eye for Week 9 of the fantasy football slate?

Key Matchup Reason
Jonathan Stewart, RB, CAR vs. New Orleans Saints front seven DT Sedrick Ellis out, hurts run D; CAR giving J-Stew red zone totes again - soph worthy flex play
Justin Forsett, RB, SEA vs. Detroit Lions front seven Julius Jones spotty, Lions a perfect opponent to give Forsett some work - maybe late in the game; DET allows ample catches to RBs
Michael Crabtree, WR, SF vs. Roderick Hood and Cortland Finnegan, CBs, TEN Hood improving TEN secondary; Crabtree learning fast, playing beyond his experience - increased use of spread offense should help
Jason Taylor and Joey Porter, LBs, MIA vs. Sebastian Vollmer, LT, NE Matt Light will probably miss Wk 9; speed rushers for MIA hurt Tom Brady last year, now Pats have rook on his blind side
Malcom Floyd, WR, SD vs. New York Giants secondary The 6-foot-5 grabber will now have more work w/Chris Chambers released; NYG d-backs banged up, ineffective
