Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pick-Ups – Week 9

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pick-Ups – Week 9:

Marvin Jones – 24% Yahoo! Owned – Marvin Jones caught all 8 of his targets for 122 yards and 4 TD’s. Jones has really turned it on the past 3 weeks, combing for 6 TD’s. Jones takes on a week Miami Pass Defense next week and should be considered a WR3 as the hot handed Red Rocket (Andy Dalton) continues to go his way.

Andre Ellington – 53% Yahoo! Owned – Ellington got the start this week and he’s still only owned in 53% of Yahoo! Leagues. Legion Report has been pumping this guy all season, especially for PPR Leagues. As the injury-prone Mendenhall sat out week 8 – Andre Ellington took advantage rushing the ball 15 times for 154 yards and a TD, while catching both of his targets for 8 receiving yards. Ellington is usually targeted more in the passing game, which makes him even more valuable. If you didn’t grab him 3 weeks ago, it’s probably too late. Use your waiver priority on his this week.

Kenny Stills – 10% Yahoo! Owned – The past 2 weeks, Drew Brees’ favorite Deep Threat, Kenny Stills,  has combined for 7 Targets, while catching 6 of them for 193 Yards and a 3 TD’s. Stills is only worthy in deep leagues, but if your desperate he has big time blowup potential. He’s a consistent Boom or Bust going forward.

Tim Wright – 5% Yahoo! Owned – With Mike Williams sidelined for the year with surgery to his hamstring, Tim Wright will now be a go to guy and a No. 2 option for Rookie QB Mike Glennon. Wright finished in week 8 with 5 receptions 48 yards and a TD. Consider him a TE2 and Bye Week replacement guy for now.

Tennessee Defense – 36% Yahoo! Owned – The Titans have been a solid unit all season. After the Week 8 Bye Week, it’s possible that several owners in your league dumped them on the wire and played the stream game defensively. We like Tennessee for several reasons – Week 9 vs. STL, Week 10 vs. JAX and they get JAX again in Week 16. They has “Add Em” written all over it. Pick Em’ Up!!!

Andre Brown – 20% Yahoo! owned – Brown is eligible to return Week 10 from injury, as he is currently on the short-term IR. We recommend the stash as a late season option. It’s doubtful that the Giants will rely on RBs like Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox to carry the load the remainder of the season. Grab Brown if you have the roster space.

    With Manning on the bye in week 9 i need a qb. Very limited options in a 12 team league. Who do you like more….McCown at Green Bay or Keenum vs. Colts. Thanks.

      Those are your only 2 options?



        October 30, 2013 at 12:45 AM

        And foles. Thats as good as it gets.



    October 29, 2013 at 1:33 AM

    Would you trade Luck away for RG3?



    October 29, 2013 at 1:34 AM

    grab tate? feel like im going to lose stacy for multi weeks and lamar miller my rb2, which is too scattered for me. do you think ben worth a grab? would have to drop marvin jones for him. already have aj green, ant brown, blackmon, steve smith, and stevie johnson as wrs. ap is my rb1, but my rb production is lacking. need a homerun.

    • Legion Report

      October 29, 2013 at 1:42 PM

      I would drop Stevie Johnson. You’re never going to start him over Green, Brown, Blackmon or Smith/Jones. There’s no need to have Johnson on your team when you need a RB. Grab Tate in hopes he carries the full load this week.


      Jorge Vargas

      October 29, 2013 at 2:22 PM

      Tate has some broken ribs on him


    Jorge Vargas

    October 29, 2013 at 10:59 AM

    I have Mike Wallace, Kennen Allen, Torey Smith, L Fitz, Dez Bryant, and Harry Douglas on my team. Should Add/Drop Wallace or Allen for Marvin Jones?



    October 29, 2013 at 12:41 PM

    Should I offer Garcon, and KC Defense for Eddie Lacy? My other RBS are Trent, L. Bell Jamaal Charles and S-Jax, My WRs are V-jax, J. Gordon, Boykin and dez. and Ind D is on waivers at the moment.

    • Legion Report

      October 29, 2013 at 4:24 PM

      No I wouldn’t do it because KC’s Defense offers what can be seen as a bonus position because of the amount of fantasy points they can score. If you trade for Eddie Lacy you’d have a log jam at the RB position. If you really want Lacy, attempt to package Trent and SJax for Lacy. It’s a tough call, but we think in the long run, KC helps you more.



    October 29, 2013 at 4:22 PM

    Would you trade Pierre Garcon for Roddy White, 12 team standard scoring?



    October 29, 2013 at 4:32 PM

    would you offer vincent jackson for eddie lacy?

    • Legion Report

      October 30, 2013 at 12:13 AM

      Yes, depending on what your lineup looks like – Lacy should be a top 10 RB ROS.



        October 30, 2013 at 2:20 AM

        Current line-up is:
        QB: manning
        2WR: vjaxx and steve smith
        2RB: gore and
        TE: cameron
        Flex: terrance williams/p. thomas/r.randle/vereen (stashed)

        was seeing if i could sell high on vjaxx to get a more consistent scorer over the next few weeks, other than manning and gore


    Jorge Vargas

    October 29, 2013 at 4:53 PM

    Jordan Reed and Fleener is availabe in my league right now. I am currently starting Tony G. SHould I pick up either of those two Reed or fleener. Tony G has been dbl covered every game since Jones went on IR.



    October 29, 2013 at 7:54 PM

    Would you start Charles Clay or Heath Miller at TE this week?- both are addable as Orange Julius is on a bye. Also do you think Boykin has higher upside than Desean Jackson, Mike Wallace or FJax in week 9? I dont but starting Clay and Wallace w the Oline woes and TNF has me panicked! (Lacy/Bell at RB1&2 standard scoring) Thanks

    • Legion Report

      October 30, 2013 at 12:17 AM

      I like Charles Clay. I also think Jackson offers higher upside, but Boykin is more of a consistent option. Still waiting to hear James Jones’ status. Don’t like Fred Jackson since he plays KC this week.



        October 30, 2013 at 6:47 PM

        Would you start L. Miller or Boykin over FJax at flex?


    C Sizzle

    October 30, 2013 at 12:05 AM

    Tannehill or Foles this week?

    • Legion Report

      October 30, 2013 at 12:18 AM

      Neither are good options, but Foles has higher upside.


    C Sizzle

    October 30, 2013 at 12:26 AM

    Colston or Kenny Stills on waiver wire, which one to pick up?

    • Legion Report

      October 30, 2013 at 12:38 AM

      Colston – Stills is still just a deep threat only guy.



    October 30, 2013 at 12:44 AM

    thoughts on Torry smith and Amendola ROS

    • Legion Report

      October 30, 2013 at 3:42 PM

      I like Torrey Smith. He’s always going to get his targets. He also has a pretty easy fantasy playoff schedule. Amendola can’t be trusted.



    October 30, 2013 at 1:19 AM

    Been holding on to the #1 waiver priority all season. Time to cash in on Marvin Jones or hold and hope an RB1 goes down and I can snag his handcuff off the wire? I don’t think I would start Jones this week, but could use a little more depth at WR.

    • Legion Report

      October 30, 2013 at 2:38 AM

      Yeah, this late in the season you can. I like Tennessee’s defense more if you can get them.



    October 30, 2013 at 1:23 AM

    Would you trade MJD/SJax/James Jones for Gio/Antonio Brown/Bryce Brown (0.5PPR)? I have Lesean and Woodhead at RB, so would like to get an RB2 with higher upside each week + Shady’s handcuff. I’m a little concerned that SJax might have nothing left. Also would love to upgrade my WR3 (Jones) into a nice high floor WR2 to go with Jordy and Blackmon. Thoughts?

    • Legion Report

      October 30, 2013 at 11:15 PM

      Yeah do the trade. Those 3 players your trading away are dead players. Gio and Brown offer way more upside and Bryce Brown is a necessary handcuff.



    October 30, 2013 at 1:45 AM

    Would you trade Stacy for rivers? I have Matt Ryan as Qb, and R Bush, Moreno, and Ellington as other backs.



    October 30, 2013 at 1:45 AM

    Who do you like better this week and ROS Pryor or Locker?

    • Legion Report

      October 30, 2013 at 3:44 PM

      Shot in the dark. Eagles give up a ton of yards though.



    October 30, 2013 at 4:59 AM

    Would you consider dropping KC Def for the Titans Def if they are available this week?

    • Legion Report

      October 30, 2013 at 3:45 PM

      No, KC’s Def is a top Defense ROS. I love the Titans Defense as a spot start this week and during fantasy playoffs, but I wouldn’t drop KC’s D for them.



    October 30, 2013 at 10:33 AM

    looking to trade Standard scoring, I have three QB, R Wilson, C Kaepernick, P Rivers trade which one?



    October 30, 2013 at 7:04 PM

    Which 4 WRS should i play this week? I have brandon marshall, denarius moore, harry douglas, marvin jones, andre johnson, and dwayne bowe.

    • Legion Report

      October 30, 2013 at 11:16 PM

      Marshall, Douglas, Andre and gotta go with Marvin Jones.



    October 30, 2013 at 8:43 PM

    Crisis bye week on wr-front…
    Have M Wallace this week as WR3 but I HATE him. Would you drop him for Vincent Brown or Stevie Johnson for a 1 week shot? Don’t need him after this week either way

    • Legion Report

      October 30, 2013 at 11:17 PM

      No, keep Wallace in your lineup over those 2. The other options aren’t strong enough to make a drop.



        October 31, 2013 at 2:08 PM

        sigh…I know. but I hat him tho…lol



    October 31, 2013 at 1:52 AM

    Real problems at WR. Should I drop McCluster for DHB?

    • Legion Report

      November 2, 2013 at 12:37 AM

      Hold on to McCluster. Alex Smith doesn’t like going deep – I like his upside more.



    October 31, 2013 at 2:50 AM

    PPR- kerley, stills, Simpson, Emanuel sanders or mccluster for this week only? Cant seem to decide on who to start. Thanks for the help!

    • Legion Report

      November 2, 2013 at 12:38 AM

      Kerley is the most consistent out of these inconsistent WR’s. Keep an eye on Colston though, he’s questionable this week. If he doesn’t play, Still’s is a real sneaky start.



    October 31, 2013 at 1:44 PM

    12 Team Standard. I have Matt Ryan and Big Ben as my QB’s. Not sure if I should really start Ryan, after what happened last week????



    October 31, 2013 at 2:17 PM

    thinking about trading for victor cruz. I would trade rice and either floyd or jeffery. I have AP, TRich, Lacy and Andre Brown. Thought? Its a PPR league.

    • Legion Report

      November 2, 2013 at 12:43 AM

      Is Cruz the only WR your able to go after? How about Marshall?


    Brenda Raleigh

    November 1, 2013 at 8:03 PM

    With Blackmon’s suspension, should I pick up Shorts, K Wright or Mike Brown?

    • Legion Report

      November 2, 2013 at 12:41 AM

      Definitely pick up Cecil Shorts if he’s out there!!!
