Week 9 Sleepers and Waiver Wire Steals: Focus on Ryan Moats

Week 8 is here and will be gone after tonight’s Monday Night Game between the Falcons and Saints, and now all the hype is directed at Ryan Moats after his sterling 3-TD performance in place of Steve Slaton.

Moats leads the list of waiver wire steals and potential sleepers for Week 9 of the fantasy football season, especially with another sextet of teams on their bye: the Bills, Browns, Vikings, Jets, Raiders and Rams.

So, is Ryan Moats someone that you should be picking up for Week 9…and perhaps even beyond?


Week 9 Sleeper / Waiver Wire Steal Focus: Ryan Moats-RB-Texans

Last week, in the Houston Texans-Buffalo Bills game, Steve Slaton, who is suffering from a severe case of fumbleitis, was benched for Ryan Moats. Moats had a huge game as he had 23 carries for 126 yards and three TD’s.

I am sure that everyone is sprinting to the waiver wire this week to grab Moats, as fantasy owners feel that Moats will save their season…Not so fast!

I do feel that Moats is worth picking up, just don’t start him… yet. Moats tore up a Buffalo defense that has been shredded by the entire NFL, including the Browns!

I want to see Moats produce like this versus a quality NFL defense. And how convenient, the Texans face one in Week 9: the Colts. I see Moats starting the game and not producing at all. I then see the Texans turning to Steve Slaton to produce, which he won’t either, unless it’s via receptions out of the backfield.

If Moats does produce versus the Colts, then he could be realistically looked at as a quality starter on a weekly basis. The above should be taken into consideration with the fact that the Texans are a pass first team.

Click here for more insight and Moats’ career stats, and the final determination if you should pick up Moats and start him this week.

Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
