I rode the subway today for the first time in nearly five weeks to get to and from an appointment. And I was all alone. Sans baby. It was like I forgot my wallet or only wore one shoe or something...a bizarro world for sure. I mean I even read a book. I know it sounds pretty minor but it was a flash back to my old life, friends. And in my old life I might have had more time to grab dudes off the waiver wire early enough to not get stuck with starting Kenneth Darby...which is how things went in Week 8 (and by a miracle I somehow still won in that league) so here's hoping you're not reaching super deep like I was last week. But if you are, well then you're in the right place since the following links basically mine the waiver options about as deep as one can go...it's nasty out there in waiver land this week. Best of luck to us all!

- Rotoworld's Waiver Wired: Stocking up acorns has you covered with waiver advice in the run up to fantasy playoffs.
- NFL.com's Blount, Green-Ellis will be hot names on the waiver wire - don't know about you guys but Blount is long gone in my leagues.
- CBSSports.com's Waiver Wire: Are you running on fumes?

- Matthew Berry's Ranking the free agents - a slightly different approach than his norm, thanks to the lack of new waiver names out there.
- The Sports Outlaw lists a guy I grabbed off the waiver wire a few weeks ago, Anthony Armstrong, in Waiver Wire Week 8. He's been putting up some good numbers lately though the concerns on the McNabb and Shanny front could be cause for pause.
- A few rankings for the week already are up at either CBSSports.com's Week 9 Top 150 (perfect for flex calls) and FFToolbox.com's Who to Start Rankings.
- RotoExpert.com's Advance Scout is sort of like a start/sit meets crystal ball kind of article. Take a look for thoughts on how things might go down in Week 9.
