2013 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 9

Howard Smith - USA Today Sports
Almost through these bye-weeks, but the waiver wire is full of potential injury fill-ins.

Check the waiver wire to see (shouldn't be there)

Shane Vereen (RB, NE) - should be headed back from injury soon and is a solid player for PPR leagues, although Bolden has been doing well Vereen would come back from where he left off.

Andre Ellington (RB,ARZ) - with Mendenhall out Ellington is proving that he is a more capable RB. He looked extremely solid and is worth grabbing in any format.

Jordan Reed (TE, WAS) - the secret is out, this kid has talent.  He is a solid fill in for any injured TE or under-performer.

Must Grab

Mike James (RB, TB) - he looked fine and should put up 50+ yards a game with TD upside.  He is fine for PPR leagues as well.

Terrence Williams (WR, DAL) - the sheer number of times Romo looked to Williams this week makes you have to pay attention.  If you are looking for a spot-starter then check out Williams.  He didn't do a ton with his targets, but trust he is being used.


Mike Tolbert (RB, CAR) - getting more than just goal-line work now and it a spot-starter all the way. You have to love the TD upside he brings to the table.

Andre Brown (RB, NYG) - he should return for week 10 and be used immediately.  Giants have to give their future back some reps so expect Andre to take the lead role sooner rather than later.

Peyton Hillis (RB, NYG) - looked to get the majority of the carries in New York this week with Jacobs out.  He can be a spot filler with limited upside, but still a starting RB none-the-less.

Brandon Bolden (RB, NE) - while Vereen is out Bolden is still getting work along with goal-line opportunities.  He is a deep starter, but someone to consider.

Jason Campbell (QB, CLE) - didn't look half-bad this weekend and if you are in dire need for a QB to get you through this bye week then take a gamble on Campbell (didn't mean to make the rhyme).

Marvin Jones (WR, CIN) - he has been putting up better and better numbers each week.  He is still a pure gamble, but worth keeping an eye on.  Amazing weekend for him.


Kenny Stills (WR, NO) - had a great game because of his deep threat ability.  He is worth monitoring but will be a huge risk to start anytime soon.
