After a wild week 8, we have a few waiver signings for week 9.
Drew Lock (Denver Broncos) – I know, it’s not the most exciting but there really aren’t many options available. With QB injuries being handed out like it’s a special prize on Oprah, you can do much worse than Drew Lock. Lock led an amazing comeback last week and had his first game with multiple TD passes. The WR core is there and capable.
Zack Moss (Buffalo Bills) – Moss has had two solid games in a row and should definitely be picked up in every league. My confidence in starting him is still low, however, he is roster able. Moss had the same amount of carries and almost the same amount of yards as Devin Singletary, but Moss has become the RedZone RB racking up two touchdowns to Singletary’s zero.
Damien Harris (New England Patriots) – Last week in the injury update I stated that the Patriots are looking for a savior to carry their team and that player seems to be Harris. Now, Harris isn’t going to single-handedly win the Patriots football games but he is really the only good looking player out there. Harris had his second-100 yard rushing game this season and will be the lead back at least until Sony Michel comes back. Even with Michel’s inevitable return in a few weeks, I still believe Harris will have value.
Curtis Samuel (Carolina Panthers) – It finally seems that Samuel has involvement in this offense. After two good games in a row, I am finally comfortable enough to suggest picking him up. He is a very versatile player and proved that last week by getting a rushing and receiving TD.
Marvin Jones (Detroit Lions) – Kenny Golliday will most likely be placed on the IR (Injured Reserve) meaning that Jones will thrive. Jones caught two TDs last week after Golladay left the game and was targeted seven times. Jones will be fantasy relevant once again until Golliday comes back.
Jalen Reagor (Philadelphia Eagles) – On his first game back, the Rookie caught three balls for a TD. It seemed like the Eagles were trying to ease Reagor slowly into the game but the small glimpse that they gave us looks promising. It will not be a surprise if Reagor will be the number one receiver for the Eagles at the end of the season.
