10 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Targets Heading Into Week 9
Even eight weeks into the regular season -- whether it be due to injury, stellar play, or a combination of the two -- a number of players are still finding themselves climbing up their teams' depth charts into prominent roles.
After Arian Foster went down to a ruptured Achilles last week, a handful of big names -- most notably Le'Veon Bell and Steve Smith, Sr. -- fell victim to injury once again this week, thrusting their understudies into much bigger roles than originally expected.
In other situations, talented playmakers are making the most of their limited opportunities to make a case that they deserve a larger role in their respective offenses.
So, as we head into Week 9, which of these players warrant a claim from your league's waiver wire as players who could contribute not just to their real life squads but to your fantasy football teams as well?
