Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Key adds for Week 9

Nearing the final stretch of the 2013 fantasy football season, it’s make or break time in Week 9.

Those atop your league will be looking to cement a top spot in the rankings, which could also mean a bye week. Then there are those fighting for a playoff opportunity, which is where the waiver wire plays an even greater role.

Here, we check out those potential adds for Week 9.


Jason CampbellJason Campbell: QB, Cleveland Browns

Jason Campbell opened up his 2013 campaign (as a starter) against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. Well, instead of succumbing to the pressure, Campbell did the exact opposite against pro football’s best defense. Campbell threw for 293 yards by going 22-of-36, he also tossed for two scores and didn’t turn the ball over.

So, for anyone needing a backup quarterback or is in dire need of a starting quarterback, Campbell is worth a look. Plus he’s a decent start in two quarterback leagues should he remain at the helm for Cleveland.


Aaron Dobson: WR, New England Patriots

Aaron Dobson is gradually coming around for Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. And that was on display against the Jets as he caught four passes on five targets for 60 yards and a score.

Moving forward, his production will be crucial as the Pats need to establish reliable targets for Brady as the postseason nears. As a result, that will create greater balance in New England and enhance its odds of a Super Bowl run. Regarding fantasy football, that will translate into more targets, yards and receptions for the rookie.


Washington Redskins Defense

The Washington Redskins aren’t defensively sound, but they are really appealing for fantasy football. For one, Washington has snagged 10 interceptions and has only allowed nine passing scoring. Even better, the Redskins have logged 20 sacks and have scored five times.

Factor in Ryan Kerrigan’s three forced fumbles (team total of six) and five fumble recoveries and this defense will rack up fantasy points. Obviously they also allow plenty of yards and points as well, but for the most part the Redskins will generate turnovers and get quarterback pressure to score solid numbers.

  1. Hi, its nice paragraph concerning media print, we all understand media
    is a wonderful sourche of data.

  2. I have Tony Romo and Andy Dalton this week, which do I start?

    I also have J. Boykins, Keenan Allen, and Alshon Jeffrery? I have to pick two, which two?

    • John Rozum says:

      Start Tony Romo at QB. Hes playing Minnesota at home and the Vikings barely know how to play defense, not to mention Dalton is playing on the road at Miami on a short week.

      And start Keenan Allen and Jarrett Boykin. They’re facing one another but I like Boykin since he’s at home and Aaron Rodgers is the better QB. Plus the Bears rarely play well at Lambeau on either side of the ball.

  3. John, like Mike, I also have Jarrett Boykin but I am in a bind between him and Vincent Jackson. Who this week
    should I go with?


    • John Rozum says:

      Lance, I’d go with Jarrett Boykin. With Aaron Rodgers as his QB and playing home against a vulnerable Bears defense I feel he has the better matchup. Not to mention, but although V-Jax is more establish as a pro, Tampa Bay is playing at Seattle who is arguably the league’s best defense, and especially against the pass.
