Waiver Wire Express - Week 9 Lightning Round

With eight weeks gone, that means over 60% of the regular fantasy season is over. Are you still with us? 8-0 teams are looking ahead to playoff matchups while 2-6 teams are looking for the 7-6 Wild Card spot. The upcoming bye week means no Bengals, Falcons, Rams or Saints -- so many of you will need fill-ins. Early planning pays off, so here is the waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 9.

This column is published early every week and then updated on a daily basis. Each day of the week will also yield more in-depth waiver wire analysis for all positions.

Waiver pickups are listed in priority order and broken down by position. Players must be owned in roughly less than 60% of Yahoo leagues and therefore will range from shallow options in standard leagues to deep options in PPR formats.
