Fantasy Football 2016 Waiver Wire: Week 9

Even with six teams on a bye in Week 9, the waiver wire report for fantasy owners looking for replacements or a boost at a particular position is slim. Without major injuries, backup players aren't must-owns. Some of the players on this list are even on a bye in Week 9, so be sure to be aware of what your fantasy team needs and fill those first.

While Dwayne Allen is the only tight end that has already been ruled out for Week 8 (Jack Doyle owners rejoice!), five other fantasy-relevant ones are questionable.

With six teams on bye, and a number of starting running backs already ruled out (C.J. Anderson, Doug Martin, Jamaal Charles, Tevin Coleman, Matt Jones) and LeSean McCoy listed as Doubtful (but likely not going to play), finding trustworthy options to fill out fantasy lineups is going to be difficult in Week 8.

Week 8 is going to be a tough one for fantasy owners when it comes to determining which wide receivers and tight ends you are going to roll with. Even with Ben Roethlisberger’s injury, you would rather have Antonio Brown in your lineup than not available at all.

So in Week 8 of the fantasy football season and the running back that owners will miss the most is... Jay Ajayi? OK, Le’Veon Bell is pretty good too and Todd Gurley can be, but that’s how kind of how this season has gone as Ajayi went from the dog house to posting back-to-back 200-yard games.

It’s Week 8 of the fantasy football season and with six teams on bye at least you know which quarterbacks and defense/special teams you won’t be starting. Then again with Ben Roethlisberger injured, the list of healthy QBs from teams on bye isn’t as appealing.

Fantasy Football 2016 Flex Rankings: Week 8

If C.J. Anderson's injury prevents him from playing, Devontae Booker vaults into RB1 and flex top-10 territory

There are six teams on bye in Week 8, which means there are plenty of big, big shoes to fill when it comes to the all-important flex position in your fantasy lineup. At wide receiver alone, there is no Antonio Brown or Odell Beckham Jr. at their owners’ disposal this week.
