Fantasy Football: Waiver Wire Additions for Week 9

Here's a look at some players that should take priority if you're hoping to pick up some reinforcements from the waiver wire heading into Week 9.


Romeo Doubs, WR, Packers: He had three straight duds before having a nice game against the Bills. The rookie hauled in four catches for 62 yards and a score while teammate Christian Watson suffered a concussion. That means Doubs could have another productive game against the Lions in Week 9.


Rondale Moore, WR, Cardinals: I was surprised to see him available in half of leagues on one platform, most likely due to his poor performance in Week 7 and the return of DeAndre Hopkins. Moore caught seven passes for 92 yards and a touchdown in Week 8, though, and is still viable as a fantasy asset.


Kadarius Toney, WR, Chiefs: Though he just got to Kansas City, you may want to put in a claim early for Toney. A weapon like the second-year wideout is rare. He drew comparisons to Tyreek Hill early on and if he can be even half of what Hill was in Andy Reid's offense, Toney could be worth it.


Kenyan Drake, RB, Ravens: It's being reported that Gus Edwards' hamstring should be fine, but if he surrenders some touches to Drake, he knows how to be productive. Drake rushed seven times for 62 yards and hauled in a short TD reception in Week 8.

Caleb Huntley, RB, Falcons: Huntley had 16 rushes for 91 yards in Week 8 and even if Cordarrelle Patterson does return in Week 9, Huntley could help keep Patterson fresh by taking a decent amount of touches off his plate. He's shown he can be productive.


Justin Fields, QB, Bears: Even though he's only thrown for more than 200 yards in one game this season, he's rushed for at least 60 yards in three straight contests. If you need a replacement for Dak Prescott, who is on bye in Week 9, Fields could be your man.


Kalif Raymond, WR, Lions: While the team continues to struggle to find wins, Raymond has had modest production over the last few weeks, gaining at least 75 yards in each of the last two games.


Nyheim Hines, RB, Colts: The veteran change of pace back has seven catches for 70 yards in the last two games and has scored on the ground. He's still light on touches, so adding him could be a luxury addition.


Dontrell Hilliard, RB, Titans: He’s no Derrick Henry, but it may be time to secure the backup in case Henry’s wheels come off. The bulldozing running back rushed 32 times to top 200 yards for the fourth straight time against the Texans. Hilliard rushed eight times for 83 yards and could be valuable if Henry goes down.


Evan Engram, TE, Jaguars: Engram has had at least four catches and 40 yards in each of his last four games. It's a tough position to fill, much like most years, so adding a productive player like Engram could be crucial.


Isaiah Likely, TE, Ravens: Does it make sense to have a handcuff tight end? Maybe if you have Mark Andrews and he is injured enough to miss the next game. Likely had six catches for 77 yards and a TD as Andrews missed some action Sunday.


Terrace Marshall, WR, Panthers: He had his best game of the season as he caught four passes for 87 yards in the OT loss to the Falcons. DJ Moore is still the WR to have on the Panthers, but Marshall is looking like he could be useful in a spot start.
