Week 9 Waiver Wire Pick Ups


Jimmy Garoppolo

Can’t wait to see the Cleveland Browns “Memes” on this one as San Fran and Kyle Shanahan acquire Garoppolo on the final year of his contract for a 2nd Round Draft Pick. With some other WR names being tossed around as potential mid-season trade targets like TY Hilton and Martavis Bryant … It will be interesting to see what other noise San Fran plans to make during the season. The 49ers are tied with Cleveland with an 0-8 Record to their name, which should position them to make a run for RB Saquon Barkley, also leaving plenty of room for WR additions. This team should turn around in a hurry. If you are in a keeper or dynasty league, we recommend getting on this train now.

Marlon Mack

We detailed on this last week, but Mack has shown to be an asset in both the rushing and receiving game. With Indi in talks of potentially trading TY Hilton, it makes us arrive at the conclusion that they are doing a complete overhaul and we would expect for them to see what they have in Mack and move on from a productive, but very old Frank Gore … finally.

Darren McFadden/Alfred Morris

And the Zeke Elliott ride continues. According to Rotoworld.com, “United States District Judge Katherine Failla has dissolved Ezekiel Elliott’s temporary restraining order and denied his motion, putting Elliott’s six-game suspension back in effect.” With the suspension back in effect, owners should expect to be without Elliott until Week 15. This will continue to play back-and-forth, but what a mess! McFadden is the recommended option over Morris in our opinion. Seriously, what a mess!

JuJu Smith-Schuster

Smith-Schuster absolutely torched Detroit, fully taking advantage of his time in the spotlight with Martavis Bryant out of action. Smith-Schuster went for a molly-whopping 193 Yards and 1 TD on 7 of 10 Targets. He had already been taking away from a frustrated Martavis Bryant and this game should be the cherry on top as it appears to be full steam ahead for his rest-of-season outlook.

Jamison Crowder

With Terrell Pryor turning in a goose-egg after only seeing “1” Target on Sunday and Jordan Reed exiting the game with another injury, it left plenty of opportunity for both Josh Docston and Jamison Crowder. Crowder hasn’t produced similar to last season yet, but erupted in this one with 9 Receptions for 123 Yards on 13 Targets. Washington will see some tough tests ahead, but like Crowder as an addition going forward.

Mohamed Sanu

Sanu has seen his role expand in 2017 and added to his stat-sheet on Sunday by producing 6 Receptions on 7 Targets for 74 Yards and 1 TD. He has been more of an asset in PPR Leagues, however Sanu has been consistent this season and a perfect WR3 for fantasy owners. We recommend scooping him up as we are in the thick of things with bye weeks.

Robby Anderson

Anderson has hit our list a few times now as a recommended WR3/4 Pick-Up. He impressed Sunday with 104 Yards and 1 TD on 6 Receptions/6 Targets. With 8 Games in the books, Anderson has logged 27 Receptions, 435 Receiving Yards and 3 TDs on the season. It will be close, but there’s an outside shot that Anderson cracks the 1,000 yard mark.

Tyler Lockett

Lockett is typically hit-or-miss, but hit big on Sunday against Houston. Lockett tagged Houston for 121 Yards on 6 of 8 Targets. He hasn’t strung much together in terms of consistency this season and his lack of end-zone production is another concern. Beyond Russell Wilson, this entire Seattle Offense is a mystery from week-to-week.

Paul Richardson

Richardson took advantage of the Sunday Shootout, torching Houston for 105 Yards and 2 TDs on Sunday. We don’t imagine that he is going to go out and win you games as his ceiling hasn’t shown to be too high in 2017, but he is worthy of a free agent addition going forward.

Kenny Stills

Stills truly stepped up in Parker’s absence, logging 3 TDs, 15 Receptions and 199 Yards across a three game stretch. If Parker remains out, Stills is worth trotting out there another week, however he will be knocked down a few pegs with Parker back in the lineup. This is a situation to monitor.

Vernon Davis

Davis is quietly having a solid season in Washington. He only has 1 TD to his name in 2017, although has produced on a game-to-game basis throughout the season. From Week 3 to Week 8, he is averaging around 60 Yards Per Game and also seeing 4 Targets Per Game as well. Reed left Week 8 with a hamstring injury and his week-to-week status is anyones guess. Regardless if Reed is active or not, Davis is still seeing production and the fact that Reed will probably miss should be viewed as a bonus.
