#248 The Top 7 Waiver Adds For Week 9

Posted on

In today’s Fantasy Life Newsletter we recap a wild Monday in the NFL and share the top waiver adds of the week. It's 11/2. Take it away, Peter Overzet…


Yesterday proved to be an eventful day in the NFL:

* The Titans placed Derrick Henry (foot) on IR and he is now expected to miss somewhere between 6-10 weeks after undergoing surgery this morning. In response, the team signed Adrian Peterson to their practice squad with the expectation that he’ll soon be promoted to the active roster. In addition to the waiver suggestions below, Peterson is certainly in the conversation. 

* The Broncos traded eight-time Pro Bowl linebacker Von Miller to the Rams in exchange for a second and third round pick in 2022. 

* The Saints confirmed Jameis Winston tore his ACL and will miss the rest of the season. Taysom Hill is expected to start if he can clear the concussion protocol, otherwise it will be Trevor Siemian at QB for the Saints. 

* The Chiefs eked out a 20-17 win on MNF vs. the Giants. Tyreek Hill (12-94-1) logged the only big fantasy line of the night, although the running backs—Darrel Williams (13-49; 6-61) and Devontae Booker (15-60; 5-65)—had nice production in the receiving game. 


Rotoviz’s Sam Wallace lists his top waiver wire targets for Week 9, as well as the percentage that they are currently rostered in ESPN leagues. Take it away, Sam…

  1. Boston Scott (RB - 4.5%) - Scott registered two touches through Week 6 but has 19 carries for 84 yards and three scores in his last two games. In the wake of Miles Sanders being on injured reserve, Scott and Jordan Howard have both benefitted. 
  1. Carlos Hyde (RB - 6.7%) - This is a speculative suggestion based on pending news of James Robinson and his bruised heel. Hyde would be the next man up for the Jaguars if Robinson is expected to miss meaningful time. Hyde did see 17 opportunities (9 rushing attempts / 8 targets) and was valuable in PPR formats.
  1. Darnell Mooney (WR - 48.6%) - Mooney dipped below the 50% threshold this week, and it likely won’t last after his impressive performance in Week 8. He set season-high marks in targets (9) and receptions (6) en route to 64 receiving yards to pace the team. Justin Fields looks the best he’s looked all season.
  1. Jamison Crowder (WR - 18.7%) - It was a banner day for the New York Jets and veteran wideout Crowder did his share (8 receptions, 84 yards). He’s seen at least six targets in all four of his games this season and remains an integral part of the offensive game plan.
  1. Van Jefferson (WR - 8.1%) - Jefferson has found some consistency in this new offense under Matthew Stafford. He has at least four targets in six straight games and has hit at least 80 receiving three times. This team can pile on the points, and Jefferson remains a cheap piece of this high-octane offense.
  1. Tajae Sharpe (WR - 0.1%) - In the wake of the news that Calvin Ridley will be stepping away from football, Sharpe drew the start. Sharpe has totaled nine receptions on 11 targets for 111 yards in the two games Ridley has missed.

7. Pat Freiermuth (TE - 6.2%) - The Steelers lost JuJu Smith-Schuster to a season-ending injury a few weeks ago. Freiermuth has totaled 11 receptions on 14 targets for 102 yards and a score in the two full games without him. He’s an integral part of this offense and remains a safety outlet for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
