Waiver Wire Rankings: Week 9

By Bob Miller

 

Week 9 Bye Week Teams:

Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, New York Giants, San Francisco 49ers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns

 

 

Week 8 was action packed. It was filled with players trades and more significant injuries, which will force some fantasy football managers into making waiver wire moves this week. Let's take a look at some key injuries:

LAR: Cooper Kupp (ankle) expected to play Week 9

BAL: Rashod Bateman (foot) to miss 2-3 weeks

BAL: Gus Edwards (hamstring) questionable for Week 9

MIN: Irv Smith Jr. (ankle) to miss 2-3 weeks

NO: Mark Ingram (MCL) to miss 3-4 weeks

 

 

Now let's check my Week 9 Waiver Wire Rankings:

There are several bye weeks to cover for this week, so players such as Rondale Moore, Justin Fields, and Kenyan Drake can really help fill some holes. In fact, Justin Fields is a player that could start weekly for those disappointed Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, and Matthew Stafford owners.

 

At Tight End, I really like what Greg Dulcich and Evan Engram are doing. They are turning into reliable weekly starters. With TJ Hockenson being dealt to Minnesota, TE Brock Wright should step in as the starter in Detroit. He may not be a bad pickup if you have the bench space. The news is out that Rashod Bateman missing multiple games, Devin Duvernay and DeMarcus Robinson could help your team as well.

 

If you are a Mark Andrews owner, I would highly recommend picking up Isaiah Likely to be safe. Coach John Harbaugh said that Andrews' shoulder injury isn't anything serious. With Baltimore's bye week coming up in week 10, they could decide to sit Andrews to get him to 100% for the stretch. It could be somewhat risky, considering the Ravens play on Monday Night Football. If he were not to play, you could plug in Likely for the Monday Night matchup.
