Week 9's Waiver Thoughts

Good morning Football Fans. Though I suppose it's already nearing the afternoon for those of you on the eastern side of the nation. So let's not waste time talking about how my loss to my husband this week was solidified during last night's Broncos-Packers game. Let's get right to who you should pick up off the waiver wire this week....read on for expert opinions:

  • FF Geek Blog's Waiver Wire Pickups, Keeper Sleepers, and Spot Starts: Week 9 has just what you're looking for, especially if you want to read up on all NFL players named Chris Henry.
  • I admit, I was fooled by Kenton Keith's time sharing in previous weeks. NFL.com's Risers and Fallers: Addai, Davis headline risers rubs that in a bit. But they don't have Marques Colston and his 3 TDs anywhere on their list of risers - an oversight? Or do they think this past week was an aberration for Colston?
  • Currently, Rotoworld appears to have a fantasy basketball article in place of their fantasy football waiver wired article. So until that gets fixed, try their Football Daily Dose for thoughts on which of your players' poor performances are worth worrying about.
  • FFToolbox's Week 9: Pickups of the Week offers several pages of suggestions of players that might be free agents in your league.
  • The FF Goat updated his Waiver Wire and Sleepers Watch Week 9 article after last night's stunner (tough times here in Denver...) to include Ryan Grant, GB's out-of-nowhere running back.
  • The Sports Outlaw's Waiver Wire Moves - Week 9 includes IDPs as well as the usual RB, QB, WR, TE suspects.
  • Who is the dump of the week? Read Fanball's Inaction Jackson for this week's big drop. Or try Cooped Up Henry for their pickup of the week.
  • Try NFL Freaks' Hot Waiver Wire Picks - Week 9 to find out why JaMarcus Russell should be on your radar.
  • Pigskin Addiction has a couple of waiver suggestions in Waiver Wire Work that I didn't find anywhere else - nice work, guys.
  • Want your waiver suggestions in video format? No problem, Fox Sports has you covered with their Waiver wire pickups video.
I'll be back tomorrow with even more waiver wire links and other fantasy news that might be help as you get your Week 9 lineups set.

My thoughts:

QB: Kellen Clemens - he's the starter in New York now, worth a shot for those with crappy options. I'd also keep an eye out for JaMarcus Russell.

RB: Chris Henry (TEN) and Ryan Grant (GB). Grant looks like he has a serious chance of taking the starting job in Green Bay, the way that Wynn keeps getting injured.

WR: Ted Ginn (MIA) and Chris Henry (CIN). Ginn looks explosive and Henry is needed badly in Cincy. The latter is coming back after week 9, apparently.

TE: Tony Scheffler (DEN) - he's scored two weeks in a row and doing a better job right now than guys like Owen Daniels (ugh, bad situation in HOU right now).
