Week 9 waiver wire pickups
Week 9 is fast approaching so it is time to once again look at the players who should be added to fantasy teams this week.
Floyd is having a nice year for the Chargers in 2015 with 21 catches for 409 yards and 3 touchdowns. With the recent injury to Keenan Allen, Floyd should get the chance to get more opportunities. Allen leads the league in catches and the team leads the league in passing yards so with Allen out, there is definitely an opportunity for someone to step up and take that production.
With Matt Forte’s injury, Langford should be much more involved in the Bears offense going forward. Forte’s injury isn’t believed to be season ending, but he could miss some time. On the year Langford has 27 carries for 80 yards and 2 touchdowns, which is good for a 3.0 yards per attempt. On Sunday, Langford had 12 carries for 46 yards.
Williams is another running back who should benefit from an injury. Le’Veon Bell suffered a torn MCL on Sunday and will miss the remainder of the year. Williams has been good this year when called upon, especially in weeks 1 and 2 when he was the starter. On the year Williams has 63 carries for 310 yards and 3 touchdowns, which includes 204 yards in the two games he started. At almost 5 yards a carry, Williams has shown that he is a productive running back and with the opportunity to get more opportunities, he should continue to have success.
Johnson is another wideout in San Diego who should benefit from the injury to Allen. Johnson has 24 catches for 283 yards and 2 touchdowns. Johnson missed two games this year, but returned two weeks ago. Both Johnson and Floyd should have a great chance to put together productive seasons and that is why both should be added this week.
