Week 9 Waiver Wire Pickups

Ryan Fitzpatrick-QB (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

Fitzmagic is back! The Buccaneers were down big to the Bengals when they benched Jameis Winston for Ryan Fitzpatrick. He came in and went 11 for 15, 194 yards, and 2 touchdowns. Fitz was likely dropped in all leagues so if your quarterback is on a bye or hurt see if you can get some Magic from Fitzmagic.


Josh Adams-RB (Philadelphia Eagles)

The Philadelphia Eagles running game has struggled since Jay Ajayi season was ended with a torn ACL. Rookie running back Josh Adams snap counts has been increasing the last couple of weeks, finished with 18 yesterday. With his increased snap count Adam’s added 9 carries for 61 yards. Adams may be worth a deep league add, but because of the uncertainty of this backfield, it is a risk.

Ed Dickson-TE (Seattle Seahawks)

Ed Dickson played his first game since being activated off the reserve injury list. He returned with 2 receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown. He only had 2 targets but it looks like Russell Wilson will look his way in the red area. Dickson will be a great tight end to utilize during a bye week.


D.J. Moore-WR (Carolina Panthers)

D.J. Moore was a big part of the Panthers offense against the Ravens. Finishing with 129 all-purpose yards. The Panthers have a weird offense so I wouldn’t put a lot of stock into D.J. Moore. This week was an explosion but next week may be zip. If you’re in a deep PPR league D.J. Moore will be worth the risk.

Jeff Heuerman-TE (Denver Broncos)

Jeff Heuerman is another great 1 week fill in. This week he added 1 reception with a touchdown. I will argue that Heuerman has a chance to be great because of the targets that have been available. When he plays, he averages 4 targets a game. So, if he can start turning these targets into receptions then he has a chance to be waiver wire gold.


David Moore-WR (Seattle Seahawks)

How about more Moore? David Moore has had a really good 3 game stretch. He is definitely one of Russell Wilson’s favorite targets because he has a touchdown in the last 3 games. Moore is another big weapon in the Red Zone which will open up for more touchdowns. With this stretch that David Moore has going you should add him and play him in a flex position.

EXTRA TIP: Watch the trade deadline today. Courtland Sutton, Chris Godwin, and Dante Pettis could become decent waiver wire pickups.
