Waiver Wire—Week 9


Tyree Jackson, QB-Buffalo
Jackson returned for the first time since Week 4 and passed for 313 yards in a 21-20 loss at Akron.  The waiver wire is light this week at the quarterback position, so Jackson may get a lot of consideration if he’s available in your league.


D’Eriq King, QB-Houston
In Full-FBS formats, King will be the hot waiver name at the quarterback position after leading the Cougars to an upset win at South Florida.  King passed for 137 yards, rushed for 83 yards, and accounted for three touchdowns, two on the ground. 


Cole Kelley, QB-Arkansas
Kelley may be the best waiver option at quarterback in Power-5 formats and he is not even guaranteed to start this week against Coastal Carolina.  After leading the Razorbacks to a big comeback win against Ole Miss, the freshman may have earned another start, which would allow starter Austin Allen another week of rest.
Lamical Perine, RB-Florida
Perine and Malik Davis have shared backfield duties over the past few weeks, but Davis was lost for the season, which makes Perine a must-add if he’s available in your player pool.  In the past four games, Perine has scored a total of six touchdowns and now his workload could increase.


AJ Turner, RB-South Carolina
We didn’t want to jump on Turner too soon last week, but after back-to-back weeks of 80-plus yards rushing and a touchdown, Turner deserves attention and a spot on rosters needing depth at running back.


Mulbah Car, RB-Houston
Teammate Duke Catalon left Saturday’s game at South Florida with an ankle injury and Car finished with 137 yards and a touchdown.  If Catalon misses any time, Car would be a solid RB2 or Flex option in Week 10.


KJ Hill, WR-Ohio State
Hill hasn’t been very consistent this year, but if you have been streaming a WR3 or Flex position for some time, there may not be another player available that has caught 19 passes over his past two games.  If nothing else, Hill has a lot of momentum heading into a Week 10 matchup at Iowa.


Tabari Hines and Scotty Washington, WRs-Wake Forest
Someone has to take the place of Greg Dortch, who was lost for the season after undergoing surgery for an abdominal injury suffered in Saturday’s win over Louisville.  Hines has only caught seven passes over the past four games, but could slide into the spot vacated by Dortch.  However, Washington is a more likely candidate to somewhat replicate Dortch’s playmaking ability.
