Fantasy Football Week 9: Waivers

Marvin Jones @MIA (27%): Should be the most popular add this week with 4 TDs in week 8 and 6 TDs over his last 3 games. With AJ Green demanding most of the DB focus and Andy Dalton playing out of his mind right now, Jones should be a decent start the rest of the season. The fact that he put up 4 TDs on the Jets normally stingy defense is pretty damn impressive.

Darrius Heyward-Bey @HOU (46%): I’m generally not a proponent of wide receivers that can’t catch, but with the season ending injury to Reggie Wayne and a borderline elite QB in Andrew Luck, DHB has a chance to be fantasy worthy for the first time in his career. I think he’ll get enough targets that he’s bound to catch a few of them. He has elite speed, so if he can just catch a few of the balls thrown his way he could be fantasy relevant the rest of the season. I’m going to bid on him, but I don’t feel great about it.

Kris Durham BYE (14%): With Megatron going crazy last week he should draw even more attention from opposing DBs, which should leave Durham with minimal coverage and an opportunity to put up solid numbers the rest of the year. Durham’s big catch on the game winning drive last week should help build Stafford’s confidence in the 6’6 2nd year WR.

Kenny Stills @NYJ (11%): Stills was a fixture on this list the first few weeks of the season, but dropped off after a few weeks without much production. With Marcus Colston a non-factor lately, it seems Stills has stepped into a more prominent role and has 3 TDs over the last two weeks. As primarily just a deep threat, he’s going to have some low point total games, but when Brees & Stills connect there’s a decent chance he’s going to end up in the end-zone (3 of last 6 catches).

Coby Fleener @HOU (38%): I’ve gone back and forth on Fleener all year because he can’t seem to put together two good games in a row. With the loss of TE D’wayne Allen earlier in the year and now Reggie Wayne out for the season (shoulder), Fleener is in prime potion to be a consistent contributor in the passing game. I’ve said this before, but I expect big things from Fleener the rest of the year and see him as a back-end TE1.

Tyler Eifert @MIA (21%): After Marvin Jones’ breakout game and AJ Green’s consistent awesomeness, Eifert should see a lot of single LB coverage. He hasn’t been a consistent target for Dalton yet, but the former 1st round pick (21st overall) has the size and speed to be an elite TE and I expect him to have a good enough 2nd half to deserve a spot in your starting lineup.
