Our weekly fantasy football waiver wire takes a look at the top pickups at each position for Week 9 of the 2018 NFL season. Many of these players are still available in a majority of leagues and could have an immediate impact on your fantasy roster. Others might be worth stashing on your bench or are simply just players to add to your watch list. With that in mind, here’s a list of players should you consider adding to your squad for Week 9.
For a more in-depth look at the players on this list, watch our our Week 9 waiver wire video.
Top QB pickup: Dak Prescott (35% owned)
Prior to the Cowboys’ Week 8 bye, Prescott was threw for a season-high 273 yards against a pretty good Washington defense. He also ran for 149 yards over his past three games, with a TD run in each of the past two. With the addition of Amari Cooper combined with a recent uptick in his rushing yards, Prescott will be a sneaky streaming QB2 in a neutral home matchup against the Titans.
Top RB pickup: Aaron Jones (75% owned)
Jones rushed for a season-high 12 times for 86 yards and a touchdown in the Packers’ Week 8 loss to the Rams. Jones continues to outperform Jamaal Williams and if his most recent game is indicative of his future role, he could finally secure the No. 1 job for Green Bay. Without high volume week to week, Jones might be more touchdown-reliant than fantasy owners would prefer, but he deserves to be rostered for his upside alone.
RB priority list: Aaron Jones (75% owned), Peyton Barber (50% owned), Doug Martin (55% owned), Josh Adams (5% owned), Giovani Bernard (30% owned), D’Onta Foreman (20% owned), Elijah McGuire (10% owned)
Top WR pickup: Keke Coutee (25% owned)
Coutee had a phenomenal start to his season, catching 17 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown in his first two weeks. Then he plummeted back down to earth in Weeks 6 and 7, managing only four receptions for 36 yards and no touchdowns combined. Coutee is nursing a nagging hamstring injury, but he should have an expanded role with Will Fuller out for the season with a torn ACL.
WR priority list: Keke Coutee (25% owned), David Moore (5% owned), D.J. Moore (20% owned), Tyrell Williams (35% owned), Courtland Sutton (15% owned), Christian Kirk (35% owned), DeVante Parker (15% owned), Danny Amendola (45% owned), Anthony Miller (10% owned), Kendrick Bourne (5% owned), Brandon LaFell (5% owned), Donte Moncrief (15% owned), Antonio Callaway (15% owned), Jordan Matthews (5% owned), Chris Conley (5% owned)
Top TE pickup: Jack Doyle (30% owned)
Doyle returned to action Sunday after missing five games with a hip injury and had six catches for 70 yards and a touchdown. The Colts have a Week 9 bye and return to a tough matchup vs. the Jaguars, but Doyle is still worth an add if you don’t have a quality tight end.
