Week 9 Waiver Wire 'n' Flier's


Russell Wilson – Wilson is coming off a 236 yard 2 TD performance on the road in Detroit. This week the Vikings come to town and they allow the 5th most fantasy points to QB’s. Particular to Wilson, the Vikings allow the most rushing yards to QB’s too. If you’ve been starting a QB for any of the week 9 bye teams (STL, N.E., NYJ and S.F.), Wilson is the perfect bye week fill in.

Josh Freeman – Still only owned in 60% of Yahoo leagues, Freeman has 3 games in a row throwing 3 TD’s. This week he faces Oakland who allows the 9th most fantasy points to QB’s.


Daniel Thomas – Daniel Thomas received 15 carries in Week 8 and scored a rushing TD while Reggie Bush got 14 carries and they both had 1 reception. In week 9 the Dolphins face the Colts who allow the 9th most fantasy points to RB’s which includes 8th most rushing yards and 6th most rushing TD’s.

Jacquizz Rodgers– Rodgers managed 60 yards on 8 carries and caught 5 balls for 20 yards. At home in prime time, Rodgers could be a serviceable flex against the Cowboys in PPR leagues.

RB Flier’s

Ronnie Brown – Mathews is the workhorse but Ronnie Brown has the 4th highest total of receptions among RB’s. The Browns allow the 4th most receptions to RB’s

Joique Bell – Mikel Leshoure left week 8 early with either a calf injury or cramps and didn’t return. Bell is already the 2 minute drill guy and closer and has the 7th most receptions among RB’s. This week he faces Jacksonville who allow the 4th most fantasy points to RB’s


Dexter McCluster – McCluster has 6 receptions in each of his last 2 games and a TD in week 8. This week he is facing the Chargers and they give up the 3rd most TD’s and 10th most points to WR's. He offers PPR upside and depending upon league format even more where he has dual eligibility as RB and WR.

Santana Moss – Last week’s flier, Moss has 7 catches and 3 TD’s in his last 2 games. With Garcon still out and Davis gone for the year, Moss could prove quite serviceable in Week 9 at home against the Panthers and their questionable defense that lost their top corner Gamble for the year.

WR Flier’s

Donnie Avery – 26 targets and 2 TD’s in his last 3 games. Avery faces the Dolphins this week who allow the most targets and 9th most fantasy points to WR’s.

Ryan Broyles – Since Burleson went down, Broyles has a TD in each of his last 2 games. Broyles is candidate for WR3 in deeper leagues and hopefully Stafford is over the hump after his first multi touchdown game.


Tony Moeaki – Prior to tearing his ACL, Moeaki was a productive TE and last week he turned in his best performance of the year notching 8 targets, 4 receptions for 57 yards. This week he faces the Chargers in a big divisional game, so Moeaki can be viewed as a decent bye week fill in.
