Chiefs take aim at depleted Packers

Fantasy football rankings for Week 9 are based on the point-per-reception (PPR) scoring used in most seasonal and daily fantasy football formats. One point is awarded for every 10 rushing and receiving yards and one point for every 20 passing yards. Six points are awarded for touchdowns scored, four points for passing TDs and one point for receptions.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, left, and tight end Travis Kelce haven’t played up to expectations this season, but a home game against the depleted Packers may be just what they need to get back on track.
