Wavier Wire WK9

Waiver wire pickups wk 9

Danny Amendola Wr, 

DetroitLions

Amendola fought through a ‘questionable’ designation in Week 6 before finishing with a single six-yard catch. Seemingly healthy in his last two games, he’s since averaged a team-high 24 percent target share on 86 percent of Detroit’s slot routes as the team’s cemented No. 3 wideout 

Diontae Johnson Wr, 

Pitt Steelers

Johnson’s matched JuJu pound-for-pound in Mason Rudolph’s four starts this year, basically mirroring Pittsburgh’s star wideout in targets (27), touchdowns (3) and air yards (279 to 275) in said contests. The difference is JuJu’s rostered in 99% of Yahoo leagues whereas his running mate continues to be glossed over at 12%. The Steelers’ unquestioned No. 2 receiver for the rest of the season, Johnson warrants WR4/FLEX consideration weekly.

Mark Walton Rb,

Miami Dolphins

In his first full game without Drake last night, Walton out-carried Ballage 11 to 3, ultimately turning six targets into three catches for 19 yards and a fumble. There’s still value in rostering a(ny) back shoring up 77.7 percent of his team’s backfield touches, but his workload has its flaws in simply being tied to the worst offense in the league. Opportunity is king, however, and Monday night projects as Walton’s floor moving forward.

Derek Carr Qb, 

Oakland Raiders

Carr has a favorable matchup this week against a lions defense that is struggling with some key injuries on defense. Carr could be a great filler for teams on their bye weeks
