Waiver Wire Week 9: Cam Newton, Derek Carr, Danny Amendola, Noah Fant

Newton won't return this week, but by next week it may be too late to pick him up

The fantasy football waiver wire for Week 9 has some interesting names. Four teams are on a bye this week leading up to six teams on a bye in Week 10. Fantasy owners should be looking at their teams and looking ahead to the next two weeks to see what they might need. The players on this list are some options, but at this point, filling out a roster is equally as important.

Waiver Wire Week 8: Jacoby Brissett, Ryan Tannehill, Chase Edmonds, Ty Johnson

Edmonds should be the top waiver priority if available in your league

Only two teams are on a bye in Week 8, so fantasy owners just have to deal with injuries (of which there are plenty) and players not performing. Injuries to Kerryon Johnson and Adam Thielen prompted two players to make an appearance in this week's waiver wire article. However, the No. 1 priority should be Chase Edmonds, if he is still available in your league (which is half of Yahoo leagues!).

Waiver Wire Week 6: Gerald Everett, Gardner Minshew, Ito Smith, Chris Herndon

The bye weeks are officially upon fantasy owners. Week 6 brings four teams on a bye: Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts, and the Oakland Raiders. Some of these teams have more skill players that may be in fantasy lineups than others.

 

Waiver Wire Week 4: Wayne Gallman, DJ Chark, Golden Tate, Phillip Dorsett, Will Dissly

With the injury to Saquon Barkley, Gallman will be a popular waiver wire add

Thankfully, the quarterback injuries were kept to a minimum in Week 3, but fantasy football owners still need to look to the waiver wire. Saquon Barkley suffered a high ankle sprain, which is going to send his owners looking for a replacement. T.Y. Hilton looks to miss some time with a quad injury, and many fantasy owners are still reeling from the Week 2 injuries. The bye weeks are also beginning.

Waiver Wire Week 2: Adrian Peterson, Malcolm Brown, John Brown, John Ross

Week 1 for the NFL and fantasy football season is in the books, and plenty of fantasy owners are ready to cut bait on some of the players on their team. While history has shown us that there is always a player that excels in Week 1, fantasy owners race to pick him up off the waiver wire, and then he does nothing for the rest of the season, we can’t predict that. Instead, we can look at Week 1, the targets, the receptions, and the fantasy points.

Waiver Wire Week 16: Elijah McGuire, Jamaal Williams, Kalen Ballage, Robert Foster

In Week 16, fantasy owners are looking to put together the best possible lineup with the pieces that they have left of their roster. By this point of the season, many of the players originally drafted are no longer on fantasy rosters.

 

Whether it is because they are injured or just underperforming, fantasy owners should take a long look at the waiver wire to see if there is anyone out there that may lead their fantasy team to a championship.

 

Waiver Wire Week 15: Kenneth Dixon, Kenny Stills, Ian Thomas, Vernon Davis

Stills has been Ryan Tannehill's favorite target

The Week 15 waiver wire is filled with players that may help fantasy owners, but none are must-adds. By this point of the season, if you’re still playing, your roster should be stocked with players you are contemplating starting (or you don’t want your opponent to start against you).

 

Waiver Wire Week 14: Justin Jackson, Jaylen Samuels, Jeff Wilson Jr., Curtis Samuel

Samuels is James Conner's handcuff and should be owned in all formats

Fantasy owners playing in Week 14 are either in their fantasy playoffs (congrats!) or the last week of their fantasy season. At this point, don’t just take a chance on someone if it means dropping a better player from your roster. Pick up a player that will help you this week, because you don’t know if you’ll be playing in Week 15 (unless you have a bye for Week 14, of course). Another strategy is picking up a player that you may not start but you don’t want to play against.

 

Waiver Wire Week 13: Lamar Jackson, Adam Humphries, John Ross, Jonnu Smith

Humphries may step into the No. 2 role for Tampa Bay with DeSean Jackson injured

Week 12 was a tough week for some fantasy owners as injuries affected many players. Evan Engram injured his hamstring in pregame warm-ups and it wasn’t announced until after the game started, earning fantasy owners a zero. Melvin Gordon was active, but ended up injuring his knee (although fantasy owners should be satisfied with the points he gave them). Andy Dalton suffered a season-ending thumb injury. Jack Doyle suffered a season-ending kidney injury. Marvin Jones Jr.
