I’d rather take a sledgehammer to the nuts than watch that Cowboys game again. I knew they’d piss the game away against the Lions after one particular situation.
Coming into the fourth quarter, the Monte Kiffin led defense had to take a freakin’ time out because they only had 10 men on the field. Are you effing kidding me? They just came off the commercial time out in between quarters! How do you not have at least the right number of players lined up? These people are professionals. Blows my mind. There was no way that team deserved to win after that.
After I cried in the shower and chloroformed myself, I woke up and decided there’s something better to do… provide you, the fantasy football people, with week 9 waiver wire targets. Here they go.
Jason Campbell, Cleveland
He’s not flashy or sexy, but he had a surprising game against a vaunted defense. Campbell completed 22 of 36 passes for 293 yards and two touchdowns. All of this was even more impressive as it was against Kansas City. If you need a bye week fill in who is on most waiver wires, Campbell is a nice play against the Ravens in week 9.
Andre Ellington, Arizona
Never mind, he’s probably not on your waiver wire. If he is, ask that league to up their buy ins next year. There’s still a time share in the desert, but he gives you great upside each week. Ellington is a viable weekly flex option or low end RB2.
Montee Ball, Denver
Ronnie Hillman has fumbled his way down the depth chart. Ball has claimed the clear cut back up roll behind Moreno. Ball is a great stash and wait guy. If Moreno goes down with an injury, Ball has the talent to be a high end RB2. For now, he probably doesn’t make your line up other than desperate situations or in deep leagues.
Marvin Jones, Cincinnati
122 yards and 4 touchdowns against the Jets will earn you some attention. However, Jones has been showing out the last couple games. He has gone for 15 catches for 250 yards the last three weeks. As long as Andy Dalton can keep up the consistent play, Jones is a WR3.
Kenny Stills, New Orleans
Stills made the most of his 3 receptions on Sunday going for 129 yards and two touchdowns. He’s on the field enough, second in snaps for WR’s behind Colston, but his lack of targets will keep him from being a consistent threat. Likely boom or bust production from Stills.
Dexter McCluster, Kansas City
Kansas City wanted to get McCluster the rock this week. He posted an impressive stat line of 7/67/1. Definitely worth a look in PPR leagues. However, getting into the end zone is a rarity for McCluster. He has become the go-to possession receiver and has led the Chiefs in receiving in back to back weeks.
Now back to crying about the damn Cowboys…
