Fantasy Football Free Agent Frenzy Week 9

New, comments

This week is a tough one with six teams off, so you can check your expectations. This looks to be one of the worst weeks for available free agents in competitive leagues.

Welcome to week 9 as we look at the best available free agents in competitive leagues. I usually keep the list to a manageable 10 or less and list only guys who will have some immediate impact.

This is a tough week as not many guys jump out, but here are a few from last week that if still available can help you out: Charles Sims,  Doug Baldwin, Robert Griffin.  That being said, let's get to this week's list:

  • Brandon LaFell - He has settled in nicely as Brady's #2 target and with their schedule, he is an easy WR3 the rest of the way.
  • Bobby Rainey - He is clearly better than Martin and has a few nice match ups coming up as Charles Sims gets into game shape.
  • Michael Vick - If your QB is off this week and your league does not penalize for turnovers, he is a nice option for the next few weeks.
  • Jonas Grey - He is the new toy at RB for the Patriots, how he will be used going forward is anyone's guess but he did get 17 carries last week.
  • Lorenzo Taliaferro - He was on this list early in the year and is clearly behind Forsett but is clearly the goal line back.
  • Donte Moncrief - He will be back to WR3 on the Colts but showed some explosion they are not getting from Wayne.
  • Theo Riddick - The Lions are saying he will have a role even when Bush gets back.
  • John Brown - The rookie had 10 targets last week and is a nice stash on bottom of your roster in case of other injuries.
  • Ben Roethlisberger - You will not get a game like last week again but he still will be a top 12 QB the rest of the way.
  • Justin Blackmon - This is for dynasty leagues and if your team is looking toward 2015, he will play somewhere.
  • Streaming defenses for the week - Chiefs, Browns, and the Steelers.
Thanks for reading and feel free to ask any questions.
