Waiver Wire Watch List: Week 9
Quarterback: It’s official, Ryan Fitzpatrick is starting for the Bucs again, and that means Fitzmagic is back. He entered in the third quarter against the Bengals after Jameis Winston threw four interceptions, and immediately lit a spark in that offense. Fitzpatrick ended up with 194 yards and two touchdowns. He was a top fantasy quarterback when he was the starter during the beginning of the season, and he may go back to putting up big numbers against Carolina and for the rest of the year.
Running Back: Packers running back Aaron Jones is still available in about half of fantasy leagues, and if he is still on the waiver wire in your league, he is a must add. He should see an increase in snaps this week due to Ty Montgomery’s disaster fumble, and because of his solid production against the Rams. He has high potential for the rest of the season and might even be a solid flex option this week against the Patriots.
Wide Receiver: After a lot of drama surrounding Devante Parker, he finally played a key role in the Dolphins offense. He went off for 134 yards on six catches. With Kenny Stills currently recovering from an injury, Parker should continue to see plenty of snaps.
Tight End: Jets tight end, Chris Herndon has managed to catch a touchdown in the last three games. Sam Darnold and the coaching staff obviously trusts him in the redzone, and any sort of consistency from tight ends in fantasy is valued highly. Another player that could be targeted at tight end is Jack Doyle. He is on a bye this week, which is why I led with Herndon, but he is finally healthy and made a big impact against the Raiders with six catches for 70 yards and a touchdown.
