Well we are (nearly) done with another week of 2022 action, so time to finetune your roster with our Week 9 Waiver Wire pickups. Making the right moves on the waiver wire is how you can really win your league. Getting those upside depth pieces, and cutting the players that are going to struggle from your roster is going to help you going forwards
We now have to start dealing with bye weeks too. Because when your roster is already struggling with injury, why not?
Teams on bye this week:
- Cleveland Browns
- Dallas Cowboys
- Denver Broncos
- New York Giants
- Pittsburgh Steelers
- San Francisco 49ers
Rules for Selection & Order Priority
For a player to be considered to be added, they have to:
- Have an rostered % of 50% or under on ESPN
- Players below are listed by their roster %, not priority. Know your league settings. If there is a high-priority add, you’ll know.
Jared Goff (DET) v GB 42.6% rostered
Goff put his previous struggles aside against the Dolphins, going for 27 from 37 for 321 yards and a single TD. Detroit’s offense needed to get back on track, after a struggle against Dallas the week before. Goff and the Lions take on the Packers next week, who have a solid defense but they have given up big plays at times. The concern will be if Goff is needed for finishing drives, or handing the ball to either of his capable RBs, but if you are in real need for a QB Goff could be it.
Justin Fields (CHI) v MIA 26.2% rostered
Fields is proof that rushing QBs are always going to be valuable. The Bears offense isn’t great, but it does seem to have found something. Fields has now thrown and least 1 TD in every game since Week 5, as well as scoring a rushing TD in each of his past two games. The rushing yards give you a decent week to week floor, and it seems like the turnovers are starting to be controlled. Next up is a Miami defense that has been able to frustrate, but Fields rushing ability should mean another decent performance.
Andy Dalton (NO) v BAL 20.4% rostered
Dalton is looking good at the helm of the Saints offense which is still without the majority of it’s receivers. The Ravens secondary isn’t one to avoid, making him a decent streaming candidate.
Others to Consider
- Marcus Mariota (ATL) v LAC 24.0% rostered
- PJ Walker (CAR) @CIN 2.1% rostered
