Greatest fantasy soccer waiver wire pickups for Week 9

Best fantasy football waiver wire pickups for Week 9

It's been a big week for "secondary" running backs as Zack Moss, Gus Edwards, Damien Harris and Jordan Wilkins posted and scored at least 80 yards while DeeJay Dallas and JaMycal Hasty also found the end zone. All the numbers are among the top fantasy waiver wire pickups of the week 9, and Free Agent adds. Joining them are some high-ranking WRs, Corey Davis, Curtis Samuel and Marvin Jones, the latter of whom could really take off after injuring Kenny Golladay.

Our full list of free agents includes more notable secondary backs (La & # 39; Mical Perine, Nyheim Hines, Malcolm Brown), some WRs of varying short-term and long-term value (Marvin Hall, Darnell Mooney, Jakobi Meyers, Allen Lazard), Sterling Shepard) and at least one QB that might be worth stowing away (Tua Tagovailoa). We also have a number of QB, TE, and D / ST streaming recommendations for Week 9 that can be found at the bottom of this list.

9TH WEEK OF FANTASY: RB handcuff table

None of the backs listed above are "certain" of what needs to be produced in any given week – or even the next week – and considering there have been no new major RB injuries (which we know of) see it after a week out to save your high waiver. Moss, Edwards, Harris, Hasty, and Dallas all have legitimate advantages. So if you need a back it wouldn't be crazy to have a high claim on it, but it really depends on your roster situation. We have got to the point in the season where you may have to do whatever it takes to win a given week, and that could mean getting back on a committee with your waivers. Neither of the receivers is a "must-hav", but again, it's not crazy to lay a relatively high claim on someone like Davis or Jones when you have few WRs and a big matchup coming up.

Right now it's about surviving and moving forward for some teams. others might have the luxury of holding their waiver positions and waiting for a major breakout / injury later in the year. Honestly evaluate your team and find out which camp you fall into. – Matt Lutovsky

Unless otherwise stated, only players in less than 50 percent of the Yahoo Leagues considered are considered.

  • Moss owns 53 percent of the Yahoo leagues, but that number should rise significantly after his 81-yard two-TD game against New England in Week 8. Moss was responsible for leading the team with 14 transfers and achieved a season high week after a total of 72 yards with 10 touches. Moss is clearly trending upwards and is Buffalo's preferred option around the goal line. It's encouraging that he also had two games with three receptions. Next week's matchup against Seattle isn't cheap, but Moss always has an advantage due to his touchdown potential in standard leagues. – Matt Lutovsky

  • # 2

    Damien Harris, RB, Patriots

    Harris cemented his number 1 status in New England in week 8, racing 16 times for 102 yards and a score. It is never easy to trust a Patriots RB, which is why Harris is likely only featured in 46 percent of Yahoo's leagues, but he has stable ground averaging 12.8 touches and 76.3 yards per game. The imminent return of Sony Michel (Quad / COVID) could have an impact on Harris' workload, but the jets on deck will be well worth it in Week 9. –ML

  • # 3

    Gus Edwards, RB, Ravens

    With Mark Ingram (ankle) inactive, Edwards rushed 16 times for 87 yards and a result against the Steelers in Week 8. He ended up splitting the time with JK Dobbins (15 carry for 113 yards), but Edwards started and was RB's preferred option Option around the goal line. Ingram is in danger of missing out on next week's Indianapolis game, and while he's out, Edwards is worth. He saw remarkable touch and always had a touchdown potential, even when Ingram was sane. So if Dobbins isn't really starting to take over the backcourt, Edwards is worth owning. –ML

  • # 4

    DeeJay Dallas, RB, Seahawks

    With Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (thigh), Dallas was Seattle's lead in week 8. He didn't do much on the ground as he only generated 41 yards, but he had 18 carries and a total of two TDs that day. If Carson and Hyde keep missing the time, Dallas can be trusted to start against a Bills defense that only allowed Damien Harris over 100 yards. Hence, it needs to be added as a potential volume based RB2 for a high performing crime. – Jacob Camenker

  • # 5

    JaMycal Hasty, RB, 49ers

    Tevin Coleman ended the 49ers' loss to the Seahawks with a knee injury and never returned. As a result, Hasty led the team with a total of 12 transmissions, and although they were only 29 yards, he had a rushed TD. Hasty will be the first defender for the 49ers while Coleman, Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) are on slack, with Jerick McKinnon serving as more of the receiver. –JC

  • # 6

    Jordan Wilkins, RB, Colts

    Wilkins made an early and frequent contribution to the Colts in Week 8, ending up with 89 rushing yards, a TD, and a two-point switch to 20 carry. He also added 24 yards on a catch. Jonathan Taylor fought at just 22 yards on 11 runs, and the Colts just seemed to prefer using Wilkins to lose time late in the game. It would be premature to say that Wilkins is even a co-no. 1 with Taylor in the future, but he should definitely be on fantasy radars and well worth adding as a free agent. –ML

  • # 7

    Wayne Gallman, RB, Giants

    Devonta Freeman (ankle) left the Giants' game against the Eagles and will face the Buccaneers on Monday night. Gallman led the Giants with 15 touches, 54 yards and a TD after Freeman's exit, and he should have a chance to carry the load while Freeman is out. It's unclear what his return schedule might be, but with the Giants facing Washington, Philadelphia and Cincinnati in the coming weeks, he can be trusted as a solid volume-based RB2. –JC

  • # 8th

    Corey Davis, WR, Titans

    Against the Bengals, Davis had one of his best games of the year with eight catches for 128 yards and a TD. He saw 10 team-level goals – the second game in a row in which he hit that mark. He should continue to be one of Ryan Tannehill's favorite weapons, and his target floor will give him a big advantage even in three tough matchups against the Bears, Colts and Ravens. –JC

  • # 9

    Marvin Jones, WR, Lions

    Jones disappointed fantasy owners this year, but broke his funk with two touchdowns in week 8. He only caught three of seven goals for 39 yards, but with Kenny Golladay (hip) injured, Jones could be in position for another big game against Minnesota next week. Even if Golladay is back, Jones as WR3 has a boom-or-bust advantage in this cheap match. –ML

  • # 10

    Mike Williams, WR, Chargers

    Keenan Allen is Justin Herbert's favorite recipient, but Williams, who makes up 53 percent of Yahoo's leagues, isn't far behind. Williams was attacked eight times on Sunday and got five passes for 99 yards and a TD. Herbert looked Williams' way to contested catches near the end zone, and he should have plenty of chances of catching TDs as the season progresses. With matchups against the Raiders, Dolphins and Jets on deck, Williams can be trusted as a WR3 / Flex streamer for the next few weeks. – JC

  • # 11

    Darnell Mooney, WR, bears

    After potentially long missed ties with Nick Foles over the past few weeks, Mooney finally caught a deep pass from Foles in week 8. Mooney caught a 50 yard pass and ended the day with five catches, 69 yards, and a TD. clearly emerge as Chicago's # 2 destination. The Bears face the beatable secondaries of the Titans, Vikings and Packers for the next several weeks, so Mooney could emerge as a rewarding WR3 in these games. –JC

  • # 12

    Allen Lazard, WR, Packers

    Lazard (Kern) seems to be back in action soon. He trained for the Packers all week before they lost to the Vikings and should have a chance in week 9 to qualify for a Thursday night soccer game against the 49ers. Prior to his injury, he received an average of 84.7 yards per game and had two TDs as the Packer's No. 2 receiver. He was slated to return to this role after Marquez Valdes-Scantling struggled to replace Lazard in that role. –JC

  • # 13

    Sterling Shepard, WR, Giants

    In his first game after a toe injury against the Eagles, Shepard caught six passes for 59 yards and a TD for the Giants. It had a target share of 28.6 percent and continues to be a safety blanket for Daniel Jones. The Giants face tough matchups against Tampa and Washington, but after that the Giants play against the Eagles and the Bengals. Both matchups are great for Shepard so he must be owned in all formats. –JC

  • # 14

    Curtis Samuel, WR, panthers

    Samuel had a big game against the Falcons on Thursday night in which he scored seven hits for 54 yards and two TDs, one on the ground and one in the air. His versatility should continue to help him socialize (he's averaging 7.6 per game this season) and he should be a good flex game against the Chiefs in week 9. –JC

  • # 15

    La & # 39; Mical Perine, RB, Jets

    Frank Gore still gets more touches than Perine, but the carry split wasn't too big against the Chiefs. Perine won 27 yards with eight runs and added a couple of catches for six yards. He won't come up with big numbers playing for a lackluster Jets offensive, but he could be a flexible game with TD in week 9 against a Patriots defense that has been playing poorly against the run for the past few weeks. –JC

  • # 16

    Malcolm Brown, RB, Rams

    The Rams continue to deploy a three-headed monster in the RB position, and it's hard to know who will be the leader each week. That said, Brown led the team in touches (12) and was only a yard less than Darrell Henderson in Week 8 (Henderson had 58, Brown had 57), and Henderson ended the game with a hamstring injury. Even if Henderson's injury is minor, Brown has consistently received touches for the Rams so he can be trusted as Flex during cheap matchups. Brown is goodbye next week and has some tough games ahead of him against the Seahawks, Bucs and 49ers, but given that he can cause harm as a recipient, he can still be flexible. –JC

  • # 17

    Nyheim Hines, RB, Colts

    Two of Hines' three week 8 receptions went for touchdowns and he finished 62 yards on eight touches. He could do more work in the reception game with T.Y. Hilton (ankle) hurts so he remains a potential flex in the PPR leagues each week. –ML

  • # 18

    Joshua Kelley, RB, Chargers

    Kelley was having a strange day with the chargers. He only had the third most transmissions on the team (7) behind Justin Jackson (17) and Troymaine Pope (10). However, Pope suffered an injury late in the game after receiving a headshot. If he misses the time, Kelley will be the addition to Jackson, and since the Chargers love to ride the hot hand, Kelley is well worth keeping. –JC

  • # 19

    Jakobi Meyers, WR, Patriots

    With Julian Edelman (knee) and N & # 39; Keal Harry (concussion) beating the Bills, Meyers was Cam Newton's preferred target. He saw 10 team-level goals, six for 58 yards. Harry might be back for the Patriots against the Jets, but even if he is, Meyers could be lining up for a bigger role in a must-win game for the Patriots. It should be a good flex game against one of the league's weakest defenses. –JC

  • # 20

    Marvin Hall, WR, Lions

    Hall scored the second most goals on Lions Sunday with seven and scored a team high of 113 yards with four catches. Hall is usually just an inconsistent deep threat, but he should see more action if Kenny Golladay (hip) has to miss some time. With a matchup with the Vikings on deck, Hall could become a sneaky flex game and well worth snapping up if you need urgent help from receivers. –JC

  • # 21

    Randall Cobb, WR, Texan

    Cobb saw a season high of 10 goals, catching eight of them for 95 yards and a TD in the Texans final game before their departure in Week 8. Cobb should continue to be added by fantasy owners who need a receiver, especially in PPR formats. There are rumors that Texans could trade Will Fuller before Tuesday NFL trading closes, and that would open up more targeting opportunities for Cobb. The Texans face the Jaguars, Browns, Patriots and Lions for the coming weeks, so Cobb should be a solid flex game and make its way into WR3 territory if Fuller is actually traded. –JC

  • # 22

    Jordan Reed, TE, 49er

    George Kittle (ankle) hobbled off the field at the end of the 49ers' loss to the Seahawks in Week 8. With the 49ers playing Thursday night, it can be difficult to ask the close end to come back for that game depending on how serious the injury is. If Kittle can't walk, Reed would be a great replacement. Reed (knee) didn't play on Sunday but he could return from the IR before Thursday night's game. Earlier that season he had a two-TD game for Kittle's relief. Ross Dwelley, who Socrates in week 8, would start when both Kittle and Reed couldn't leave. –JC

  • # 23

    Eric Ebron, TE, Steelers

    Ebron was able to catch a TD against the Ravens and continues to see consistent goals from Ben Roethlisberger. He's got a great matchup against the Cowboys in week 9, so he can be a high-end streamer and should be a TE1 in that matchup. –JC

  • # 24

    Logan Thomas, TE, Washington

    Thomas has caught a TD in each of his last two games for Washington, averaging 5.7 goals per game this season. He appears to be becoming one of Kyle Allen's favorite red zone weapons, and can be trusted against the Giants, a team he had 42 yards and a TD on three catches against them a few weeks ago. –JC

  • # 25

    Darren Fells, TE, Texan

    The Texans will face the Jaguars in week 9, and the Jaguars have approved 12.3 FPPG for TEs this year, which is good for the fourth most in the NFL before week 8. Fells has scored twice in his last three games, averaging 47.3 meters per game over that period. It can be streamed in a cheap matchup. –JC

  • # 26

    Albert Okwuegbunam, TE, Broncos

    After scoring 13 goals in the first two games of his career, Okwuegbunam saw only one official goal against the Chargers, but he made it count. He stumbled in the red zone at Drew Lock's front desk and scored his first career TD. He had also broken up another near TD while drawing a pass interference penalty. Okwuegbunam will be second fiddle in the TE rotation after Noah Fant, but he will take on a hawk defense in week 9 that has given TEs the most Fantasy Points per game this season. Maybe he could steal another score and be a relevant streaming option in a great matchup. –JC

  • # 27

    Derek Carr, QB, Raiders

    Carr had logged at least 264 passes and two TDs in the four games before a weather-related dud in Week 8. He was supposed to bounce back in week 9 against a Chargers defense that allowed the third most FPPG to hit QBs before week 8 (23/5). Carr is a top tier streaming option with a high floor. So you can trust it and keep it as a high quality backup QB. –JC

  • # 28

    Kirk Cousins, QB, Vikings

    Although the Lions defenses improved over the year, Kirk Cousins ​​had great success against them in two games last year. He had a total of 580 yards and five TDs against Matt Patrick's defense in 2019, and since the Vikings defense hasn't been very good that year, cousins ​​may have to throw a lot to keep his team in play against a solid offensive in Detroit. Cousins ​​have been inconsistent this year, but he definitely has a high cap against the Lions who just dropped three TDs to Philip Rivers. –JC

  • # 29

    Tua Tagovailoa, QB, dolphins

    Tagovailoa didn't do much about a tough Rams defense in his first career NFL start, but he turned a few things upside down. He finished the day only 96 yards but showed his great accuracy and arm strength with a laser of a TD pass to DeVante Parker. He could be a solid game against the Cardinals next week and is worth adding as a speculative streamer for later in the season (he has matchups ahead of the Jets and Bengals). –JC

  • # 30

    Drew Lock, QB, Broncos

    Lock doesn't look like the most attractive quarterback target until you remember playing the Falcons in week 9. The Falcons have allowed the most FPPGs for QBs this season, and a matchup against their defenses might be just what Lock needs to keep his goal going after a great second half against the Chargers in Week 8, it's tough to get him to be confident, but if there was ever a place for lock in to start, this would be the place. –JC

  • # 31

    Tennessee Titans D / ST

    The Titans are some of the best defensive streamers to target again. In week 9, they'll take on the Bears, a team that ranks sixth this season in both total points and yards per game. The Titans should be able to contain their lackluster crime. –JC

  • Washington averaged the third smallest yards (292.7) and third smallest points (19) per game in week 8. The last time the Giants competed against them, they forced Kyle Allen to do a few turns, including a ball and a fumble. You could force him to make further mistakes so that they can be trusted in this matchup. – JC

  • # 33

    Washington soccer team D / ST

    Washington's defense has allowed 20 or less points in their three games against NFC East opponents and is sixth in sacks per game in the NFL with a grade of 3.1. Daniel Jones has flipped the ball at least once in every game this year and is sacked almost three times per game, so Washington should have a chance to do well in that matchup. –JC

  • # 34

    Arizona Cardinals D / ST

    The Cardinals contributed to their pass rush by trading with Markus Golden and will take on Tua Tagovailoa at the first start of his career. Beginners can be prone to errors. Trust the Cardinals, especially after they intercepted Russell Wilson three times in their last game. –JC

  • The Lions defense has played relatively well in recent weeks, and Kirk Cousins ​​has intercepted four times in four games this season. This should be a priority for Lions, especially as their secondary education continues to get healthier. –JC

  • The Texans should be a good defensive streamer this week. They take up a Jaguar offensive with some guns, but they'll launch either Mike Glennon or Jake Luton in place of an injured Gardner Minshew (thumb). Glennon is a mediocre veteran while Luton is a round six rookie. The Texans have a good pass rush so they should be able to put pressure on the new starter and force him into some mistakes. –JC
