It’s time for the Week 9 fantasy football waiver wire. Fantasy waivers can often make or break your season. Making the right decision on which players to add and drop is crucial, so we have you set up with a deep list of potential waiver wire adds for Week 9.
Remember, we cast a wide net every week in our waiver wire advice. Below you’ll see recommendations for shallow, regular, and deep leagues. Players are listed in order of priority and the suggested auction budget percentage is in parentheses.
Keep in mind that some leagues may be more aggressive or conservative in terms of bidding, so know your league tendencies. Regardless of the size of your league, it’s suggested that you work your way down the list and prioritize the top players in your waiver claims for this week.
Shallow leagues (8-10 teams)
Drew Brees, NO (10-20%) — The future Hall of Famer is surprisingly available in 77% of leagues. He's a top-12 option going forward.
Devin Singletary, BUF (10-20%) — The momentum is building for Singletary. Look for his role to expand in November.
Mark Walton, MIA (10-20%) — With Kenyan Drake out of the mix, the Dolphins used Walton as a three-down back in Week 8. That said, running backs on bad teams often aren't very good fantasy options.
Christian Kirk, ARZ (15-30%) — Kirk got back on the field and picked right up where he left off. He's currently available in just over 30% of leagues.
Darren Fells, HOU (5-10%) — The Texans use a ton of two-TE sets, but Fells has emerged as the preferred option in the passing game.
Regular leagues (12 teams)
Jameis Winston, TB (4-7%) — Sure, last week was ugly for Winston. But despite the poor play on the field, he still finished as a top-10 fantasy option.
